Greece Lightning Reloaded

Finally getting around to discussing R. Kelly's new album. Everything that I hadn't already heard was pretty underwhelming, but most people will get it for Trapped in the Closet anyway. The other standout tracks remain, Playa's Only and In the Kitchen (which is even unintentionally funny than TitC).

The big reason to pick the CD up is for the bonus DVD, that includes a great driving scene and the removal of a weave. Noticed a big change in the song on the CD/DVD that gave away the twist ending about the cop flicking a cigarette as he gave him the ticket. In the original, the line was "I said this is some bullshit/as he handed me the ticket" Also disappointed that they only showed a condom wrapper, and not an actual rubber, guess they couldn't go all the way.

With chapters 6-10 coming soon, and more rumored to come down the road, I'd say just wait for the compilation DVD. Oh and can we get a DVD of the Mr. Big videos already?

On a sidenote, couldn't Dave Chappelle have easily done a whole episode with his take on the Closet saga? We're really missing out on something big here.

Also picked up the new Slim Thug album yesterday (be sure to get the version with the bonus Chopped and Screwed disc). Unlike the Mike Jones album (which was shitted on heavily), Slim Thug does Houston proud with a solid disc. Full of tracks to get you amped. Thug raps angrily without coming off as forced or petty (see the Game/50 feud). Slim also does 50 one better on The Interview using the same tired concept used in 21 Questions, but delivering something fresh.

Like A Boss is the best solo track by far, but there are plenty of great collabos to make up for it. The Bun B tracks (3 Kings also with T.I. and the I Ain't Heard Of That Remix) are bangers and the title track Already Platinum with Pharrell was a nice surprise (no "Beautiful" here).

It also looks like Slim is coming out with a group of his own called Boyz N Blue. They have one track on the main album, and are featured throughout the bonus disc.

    And the pantyhose clad girl got on her knees and knelt erect at the feet of her master, her superb breasts rising and falling in deep undulations, her heavy breathing the telltale sign of her having been turned on and heated up so mercilessly. He asked a question.
