Weekend At Diggedy's - Volume 57

"I once thought I had mono for an entire year. It turned out I was just really bored. "

- Wayne Campbell

I have felt like absolute hot trash on a stick for the last three weeks. Started as a traditional head and chest cold jamboree. Started to go away. And now, I don't know what the hell I have. My temperature won't exceed the low 100 area, yet can't stay at 98.6. It's like some sick monster is there taunting me.. "You're not sick enough for anyone to figure this out, but you sure as hell aren't healthy bitch"... Went to the doctor.. They basically blew me off.. Prescribed me Azithromycin... I don't know what is in this thing. It has f*cked my insides up. I feel like someone has whooped my *ss. I guess I keep making it worse by not only showing up to work, but by also showing up at all these things I guess I kind of sort of have to be at. And I think 82% of that is because does anyone ever really believe you are "sick"? "Dude, I'm sorry, I can't make it out to your birthday party tonight. I feel awful. I have a cold". Come on. The cold, while deadly, is extremely weak when you hear it as an excuse. Strep throat? Damn right, stay home. The flu? Sh*t, please keep that away from me. Cold? Come on man, just bring some tissues. Don't be a p*ssy.

Yes.These are the thoughts going through my head this cloudy (outside and in my head), rainy, Friday morning.

On to the choice cuts! There is no theme whatsoever to be found in this week's WAD. Nothing. I just randomly picked 3 songs. Seriously. So don't go looking for deep meaning here.

Lupe Fiasco - "Sunshine"
http://www.zshare.net/audio/11772466e7f399ff/

Obviously an extreme late pass, but I've been getting into Lupe's first album, Food & Liquor recently. This is a deliciously mellow track. If you don't have the album, download it!

Black Sheep - "Sunshine"
http://www.zshare.net/download/11772726e6d9c8e5/

Produced by Showbiz. I'm generally not a fan of singing on the hook, but I can't hate on this song. It's off of the recent Black Sheep (basically just Dres) album, 8WM/Novakane. Just such a happy as f*ck type of song. And I've always been a fan of Dres. For the most part, he's been a product of the production. If the beat is slamming, he comes off. There is a graveyard littered with the tombstones of tracks he has bodied with one verse. Anyway, download it!

Mos Def - "Sunshine"
http://www.zshare.net/audio/11773288a2a5d1e2/

This is the last Mos Def track I've gotten truly excited about... Maybe it's cause Kanye was on the beat. But it's overall dopeness. If you ain't got it, now you can. Download it!

Have a good weekend people.

Honorary fourth track: "Sunshine" by De La Soul, last track off Stakes. Nice way to end a great album.
