At the age of 5 he was playing drums and percussion instruments he eventually ventured into piano and woodwind instruments at the age of 9. Ensayne Wayne's sound is arresting; he boldly combines the Southern knocking bass drives he grew up on, with a self-described "chamelon" sound. The product of this alchemy is as platinum as the MPC he makes his beats on.

Doctors come out of med school with huge debt to repay. Probably why we "understand" why a trip to the doctor can cost so much in the United States. But wouldn't it be a boon to making healthcare affordable if doctors could graduate debt-free? Well... somebody's already doing that... Cuba!
And if you don't know, now you know. So, next time somebody spouts that 'Communist Cuba the bad guys' stuff ... You hit 'em with the link to this story. Oh, and tell them the US is actually doing some 'bad medicine' down that way. Remember the Gitmo force-feeding? But we'll keep this peace positive. Thanks for the good medicine, Cuba.

With this recent Barney situation still looming. Do you think Jay Z will pull out or do you think he is just trying to ride the wave hoping that it will all blow over? What would you do in the same situation? Or do you think our BLACK & Latino community matter at all to him

The Legendary Roots Crew have been in the game for 20 years now. Before appearing on television nightly with Jimmy Fallon, The Roots toured endlessly around the world doing something close to 200 shows a year. In between hitting the road hard, the crew always found time to hit the studio to work on 10 albums.
14 years after releasing "Things Fall Apart" in 1999 The Roots Crew finally have a platinum album after their belt. Pretty amazing considering in 20 years, I can only remember one song "You Got Me" feat. Badu receiving any airplay on commercial radio.
I still have my copy of "Things Fall Apart" with the same cover art pictured above. Here's some more info about the project.
The February, 1999 MCA Records release boasted two singles, including the Grammy Award-winning "You Got Me" featuring Erykah Badu and Eve, along with "The Next Movement," which featured DJ Jazzy Jeff, along with The Jazzyfatnastees. The mainstream breakthrough LP from The Roots included extensive production from then-member Scott Storch and contributions from J Dilla (as Jay Dee). Guest emcees included Common, Mos Def, Beanie Sigel and Roots Crew mainstay affiliate Dice Raw.
Upon release, Things Fall Apart, which had five different album covers, debuted at #4. The other Roots album plaque belongs to 2002′s Phrenology, which is certified gold.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ROOTS... Proof that if you keep building things don't always fall apart.
