Craig David - “Fill Me In” (Blacksmith remix)
There are more classic official remixes of “Fill Me In” than you have cousins but I heard this one today that immediately turned my blood into champagne. It’s on the b-side of the vinyl and from what I can tell has more or less slipped through the cracks — this video has 11,000 plays on YouTube which might as well be nothing.
This is basically like if “Fill Me In” was a 112 song and yes that’s as utopian as it sounds.
I feel it all.

How I fell into Rick Ross’s pool
Easily my crowning achievement as both a human and journalist happened in September when I fell into Rick Ross’s pool. In the story and in conversations I’ve tried to explain exactly how I fell into Rick Ross’s pool but the above diagram (screencap from RICKY ROZAY BASKETBALL VLOG) probably illustrates it best.
The red shows where I walked into his moat; the blue shows where I was supposed to walk. ALSO RICK ROSS’S BACKYARD HAS POOR LIGHTING.
Erykah Badu, “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long” (2010)
This song means a lot to me.
After the reexamination of R. Kelly’s sex crimes I’ve been thinking about when I saw Mystikal at SXSW this year. Here is what I wrote about that at the time.
Every time I tell people about seeing Mystikal, I always tell the story of Mystikal directly addressing the women in the crowd and telling them that he got tired of jerking off in prison, where he was for six years after forcing his hairdresser to have sex with him while two of his friends filmed it. They cheered wildly in response. Then he did a song where he literally becomes possessed by his dick.
I talk about it every time I talk about seeing Mystikal because it was one of the most bewildering things I’ve ever seen at a concert. I didn’t know what to think of it at the time. I don’t really know what to think of it now. I have also told everyone that it was the best show I’ve seen in a couple of years.
