So, yeah, Jay Electronica's on the Roc now. Here's his track with Jay Z and The Dream. I love this sample Pete Rock used for "Gotta Love". Hit me if you know what record both artists used for these songs.

The performance of 'Four Women' by Kelly Price, Marsha Ambrosius, Jill Scott and Ledisi was the shining gem at the 2010 Black Girls Rock special on BET this month. The song is a remake of Nina Simone's classic, and is featured on the soundtrack for Tyler Perry's new movie, "For Colored Girls". Each woman expressed their part of the song with the right amount of force and subtlety. A classic performance in my eyes! Peep it.... After that, check out the link to the Reflection Eternal version of Miss Simone's song from their 2000 album "Train of Thought".
