Another Quick ONE!!!

So I dunno if you’ve noticed it too but I’ve been suspecting a pattern to the recent ‘We Plug G.O.O.D Music’ features and I spotted it while I was puttin together this latest blog… All of the music we showcase on each of our features literally span the globe… from the U.S 2 Africa and back to the U.K! While it’s certainly not been intentional, it does go to show the GLOBAL appeal amp; reach of the ‘We Plug G.O.O.D Music’ movement!br /div style=”text-align: justify;”br /… And like we always do it, let’s get stuck right into the G.O.O.D.M.U.S.I.C!!!br /br /The ‘quintessential male Ramp;B artiste’ is somewhat of a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_816E7vkb0Ds/Sf3erFLz-fI/AAAAAAAAAEQ/68gvHfnLIDU/s1600-h/young+nate.jpg”img style=”margin: 0pt 0pt 10px 10px; float: right; cursor: pointer; width: 134px; height: 200px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_816E7vkb0Ds/Sf3erFLz-fI/AAAAAAAAAEQ/68gvHfnLIDU/s200/young+nate.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5331662365583997426″ border=”0″ //aa rare/almost extinct phenomena in the U.K these days amp; has been for a while now I might add… YES we all know Craig David came thru amp; crushed the building BUT to be fair, dude went a bit more Capital Radio than Choice FM with those last two albums!

He sounds quite G.O.O.D to be honest and as for the emcee? Well he’s good too! His flow is on point amp; he’s very easy on the ear which is good but his delivery is patchy at times amp; them lyrics aren’t anything special!

Part of it, I think, has to do with the production on the record! the thumping beats are that G.O.O.D head bumping kind that we love and what did I tell you about the flow? Dude can switch up his style to go all energetic on a ridiculous beat like this and still go all gentle when he needs to, like on ‘Feel The Music’. amp; did you notice the backing vocals on the second verse? I thought that was brilliant, it adds that haunting feel to the song. It sounds very much like a fight song and I suppose that moniker fits right in as Skales tells us he’s literally gonna go tooth amp; nail to bring that Grammy back home… We wish him all the best amp; we’ll be sure not to stand in his way!br /br /BUT this is where I have qualms with his management team….
