The Rain (by DMX) 

I had hoped that after suffering a heart attack last week, DMX (Earl Simmons) would pull through. It was asking a lot. The heart attack left him on life support and basically brain-dead. His family called it today. DMX passed away today at 50. The…

LeBron takes on the Monstars in the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer! 

I’ll admit to being a little excited for this newest generation of 1996’s Space Jam. I love cartoon / live action mashups, and Space Jam: A New Legacy looks like it’s all that and then some. Director Malcolm D. Lee (Roll Bounce, Night School) leads…

Got To Give It Up – by Marvin Gaye 

With Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods recently premiering on Netflix last week, Marvin Gaye’s Got To Give It Up takes center stage on a soundtrack that uses a lot of the singer’s music. When I hear this song, the first thing that comes to mind is 1993’s Menace II Society, where we’re introduced to Cain as a child. Released on the Live at the London Palladium album, the song clocks in at nearly 12 minutes, just half a minute shy of “A Love Bizarre”. It’s a great song to have in the background when you’re working on something.

I used to go out to parties
And stand around
‘Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
But my body yearned to be free
I got up on the floor and found
Someone to choose me
No more standin’ along the side walls
Now I’ve got myself together, baby
And I’m havin’ a ball
Long as you prove it
There’s always a chance
Somebody watches
Might wanna make romance
Move your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
To the groove and feel all right
Everybody’s groovin’ on like a fool
But if you see me, top down, let me in
Baby just party high and low
Let me step into your erotic zone
Move it up
Turn it ’round
Ooo shake it down
Owwww
You can love me when you want to babe
This is such a groovy party baby
We’re here face to face
Everybody’s swingin’
This is such a groovy place
All the young ladies are so fine!
You’re movin your body easy with no doubts
I know what you thinkin’ baby
You wanna turn me out
Think I’m gonna let you do it babe
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
You got to get it
Got to give it up
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up
