I Need A Late Pass…

I’ve been trying to do a better job at listening to up-and-coming artists in the past year or so, but I always seem to fall behind some way.

I bumped into Donnie Goines (what up homie?) roughly two weeks ago and I was telling him how I’ve yet to listen to The Breakfast Club in its entirety. I usually upload new music onto my iTunes and drag them on the iPod as soon as I get it. I listen to most of my music while riding the train or cleaning the crib. And while my apartment isn’t too nice to be rap-free like Kanye, I usually stick to more mellow stuff when dusting.

In any event, in addition to The Breakfast Club, there are several recent CDs I’ve yet to hear in their entirety. I mean, this Eminem album grew on me, but I’m only at like the fifth listen so you get the picture. I still need to get to Big Sean’s new mixtape, finish Cam’ron’s Crime Pays, finish UGK’s UGK 4 Life and Nicki Minaj’s Beam Me Up Scotty, among others.

But I need a serious late pass on Blu & Exile’s Below The Heavens, which I’m bumping as I’m writing this entry right now. I’ve heard a good amount of music from Blu and some joints off Below The Heavens, but until now, I hadn’t taken the time to give it the headphone listen it deserves, which is kinda crazy considering I’m digging Blu’s music. I may be late on something else, but off the top, that’s pretty much it.

What about you guys? Have you earned any late passes?
