Big Ced is More Hip-Hop than You

Eminem "Slim Shady" Review in Blaze

Eminem Slim Shady Review in Blaze

It’s true. Big Ced, of the Industry C0sign and a whole lotta ish you can ask him about yourself, is more Hip-Hop than any of us. I first noted it when after every time I thought to myself, “Damn, that dude in MC Lyte’s ‘Paper Thin’ video looks just like Ced”—it turned out to be Ced (via Rocka Candy) after all.

Then when searching for my old Source 50th issue to scan its cover for a recent post, I came across my set of Blaze Magazine issues [semi-tangent: Aliya S. King relayed a great story involving Blaze right here). I’ve teased Cedric many times that I would get around to scanning his appearance in the aforementioned mag’s review section. Nah, he didn’t write a review, but his mug was used as the sections rating scale (large pic below). Pretty creative move on the late mag’s part, actually.

All this to say, Ced is more Hip-Hop than you, you, you and all the you in the back, and in the middle, and in the front. Word.

Teena Marie new single with Faith Evans

Grammy nominated singer Teena Marie celebrates her 30th year career anniversary with the release of a new album Congo Square set for a June 9th, 2009 street date.   Teena Marie’s 13th album release and debut on Stax Records/Concord Music Group, is an ode to all those who came before her like Sarah Vaughan, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye to name a few.
 
The first single “Can’t Last A Day” featuring Faith Evans will be released and available on iTunes April 7th.   Teena describes how Faith became involved in the song.  “It was after I had recorded the song I got the idea to put Faith on it.  I’ve always loved Faith and her vocal style.  She reminds me of me.  Her correlation with Biggie – having a career with him and without him – reminds me of me and Rick.  I feel like she’s a younger me.  Of the younger ladies, she’s the one I love most.”  Teena and Faith move back and forth throughout the song with powerful emotion, ripping scenarios of haunting feelings of love and trying to get through the day without it.  Teena continues “Musically, “Can’t Last a Day” has that Gamble & Huff, Teddy Pendergrass Philadelphia International sound ‘in the music.  It’s about that mystical, joined-through-God kind of love…really powerful…like the love I felt when I spoke to my auntie who was married for 57 years, and reflected on my mother who was married to my father for 36 years until he died. When she dies she’ll be buried next to him. I’m talking about people being together until the end of time. I think we’re really missing that level of love today.”
