Jill Scott Top 10 Countdown and New Music

When we think of Women’s History Month we should be think of the strength that all women personify. I must say that Jill Scott is one hell of an example. The way that she writes a love song is comparable to no one else. Her songs take you on a ride that frankly you don’t want to get off of. Don’t believe me check out her VH1 Storytellers special.

She has recently put out new music and an anticipated album is sure to follow. The video for her new single, “You Don’t Know” is below.

She is a mother, singer, writer, actress, poet, and above all she is a poster child for Women’s History Month.

Some songs that did not make the top 10:

My Love 


Lovely Day 


Shame 


Hear My Call 


Crown Royal 


Sometimes I Wonder 


The Fact Is (I Need You) 


Gimme

Young Veteran Series Presents: Kanye West Top 10

Yes, Mr. West is in the building. For a decade, Kanye has made a strong argument for being named the best rapper alive. The Chicago native has put out hit after hit and has never disappointed. I must say that I had lost a great deal of respect for West after he interrupted Taylor Swift at the MTV VMA Awards in 2009. It was out of line and uncalled for, but since then he has let his music do all of the talking for him.

Let us look back at a a couple of his most memorable moments:

Though Kanye seems to have a tough, brash persona, his music is actually deep, sympathetic, empathetic, and very meaningful. In his latest song he portrays his mother in the third voice speaking down to Kanye and his daughter, North.

Click here for a previous release his newest song “Only One” featuring Sir Paul McCartney.

Kanye West is my favorite rapper, because he is not like the rest. He does not reuse the same material verse after verse. I personally, do not care about how much money someone has, how many women they are sleeping with, how many cars they driving, or how much an outfit costs. He discusses political and social ideals that are truly not ignorant. Though his opinion may not be in the majority, he is at least willing to share his opinion. For that reason alone he should be respected. Even Kanye said that he was the abomination of Obama’s nation.

Typically, when I write about an artist’s Top 10 songs I select ten songs and leave it there, but Mr. West deserves two separate countdowns. One is for the work that he has done on his own, and the other for all of the collaborations that he has done.

Top 10 Kanye West songs:

10. Heard ‘Em Say


9. Stronger


8. All Falls Down


7. Jesus Walks


6. Flashing Lights
