It’s time for Cupid’s Hunt again! 2010 and this is my third year doing it!
Well I’ve actually been down since the beginning..when it was just a few of us…now we have over 30 participants! I’m so excited about us joining in to do this collaboration across so many different websites.
This mix is full of tracks that I heard live. Whether the artist was on the come-up or like in the case of D’Angelo, recorded the best album she/he recorded in my book. I saw him at the Beacon…in the all white (Holla if you hear me) when Mos Def was his opening act…I caught Kindred at Le Bar Bat, Jilly and Badu in Philly…Jaguar and Anthony in Jersey and Algebra in ATL. I stumbled into a bar years ago and heard Goapele..staggered into another and heard Floetry. I paid good monies to see Maxwell and Raphael and never regretted a dime!! When I had the pleasure of seeing these artists perform these songs, it sent an aural pleasure down into my bones. I know this one will be on repeat in my IPod…I hope it will be for you too!
I was one of those people who heard about Amanda Diva but never paid too much attention to her. A pretty face, while listening to her new mixtape, I quickly discovered that she had enormous talent on the mic.
