Music

So the album by Kanye's buddy John Legend that everybody's raving about is pretty nifty, but it sure does mush out from tracks 8 through 12. Plus, sorry, I just don't trust the fella. At least Cash Money Millionaire Mannie Fresh wears his sleaziness on his sleeve, and he's got way better punchlines. And he's more soulful, too—check out "Lady Lady," "Nothing Compares to Love," "Not Tonight," even "How We Ride." As for Gavin DeGraw, he may not be soulful, but he knows a good Stone Temple Pilots riff when he hears one. And DJ Jester turns 50 Cent into ragtime, which somebody had to.
