LATHUN GRADYComing to us straight from Detroit, Lathun Grady has got to be one of the most slept on artists during the last decade. Although this young man was signed to Motown, I would say he's definitely still an underground artist. I mean, yeah he was signed to Motown, and he got his shine, but there wasn't enough light for anybody to really see anything.
I remember the first time I heard him sing....It was the summer of 2001. I was on TV hosting The Funkshop, my music video show and my video provider, sent me a video called Fortunate and asked me to add it in my rotation. It was the title track off Lathun's then new album "Fortunate". I listened to the song with it's Soothing melody....it had a kind of Latin Caribbean feel to it, with a dash of Hip Hop sprinkles. The lyrics were quite poetic and made me think of a time when I was in love and felt "Fortunate" because of it. You know there's no feeling in the world like one of being in love! I have to admit, I really liked the song, and the video was real cute too.....cute and simple. Okay so I was impressed enough to pay attention to this guy, but when I found out that he also wrote and produced MOST of the songs on his album I was wholly impressed. After that I was hooked, and I just knew for sure that this brother was going places. I added his video to The Funkshop Rotation and even though the label gave me his new CD, I still went out and bought one just to support the artist. Here's his song Fortunate. You'll probably remember it when you hear it. Listen to it, then I'll come back and tell you more about Lathun, with his pretty eyed self....Wooo!

I don't know how many of ya'll actually LIKE Ray J, he does have to be somewhat of an acquired taste, I understand. But every once in a while he hits the nail on the head and he ends up belting out some pretty good material. Now to be honest I don't think I've fell out over anything he's released since "Formal Invite" and THAT was my shizz! Weeeelllll...I think his new track "Bananas" is on the same level. I like crazy knockin' and bumpin beats and "Bananas" bumps. You can check it out for yourself though, different people like different things. Click the play button below and let me know what's good......or not. LOL
