I was having a nice cup and reading some creative strat book when my shuffled ipod started playing some really nice, meaningful hiphop. i really like lyrical stuff with a nice, steady backbeat you can feel, and so i quickly scribbled a bunch of song titles I had on my ipod that fell into that same kind of vibe. Wove them into a mix when I got home.
It's fun to listen to on a sunny day sitting by the window of your favorite coffee establishment. It stimulates thought and isn't uber-loud and screaming at your face. It helps you think, I think.
