This week, for the inauguration of the blog, I'm going to post two songs. First, I'd like to bring back one of my favorite Blue Scholars songs, whose chorus influenced both the title of this blog as well as the message of it, "The Inkwell". With its smooth beat and reflective lyrics, the song comes across as a raindrop falling from the Seattle sky. More than any other song, this one reminds me of home, the streets and the feel of the South Sound area on a cloudy day. It reminds us of a time when Blue Scholars were creative and the most important voice in the Northwest rap scene.
Second, I've got this old school BANGER, the one you couldn't get away from in 2005. I could have chosen "Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It" or "White Tee" to the same affect, but after about 3 seconds of careful consideration, I went with the remix to "I Think They Like Me" by Dem Franchise Boyz. Please, bump this at your next party for me. Do it for the ratchets! You know they miss this as much as I do.
