Today is another one of those days where I stumble over an extremely talented artist that I have yet to hear about! I love and hate these days. Love em because I'm excited about the new music, and hate em cause I had no knowledge of their work. Today's dose comes from NJ songstress Gaelle with a laid back house groove entitled "Rain". "Rain" appears on her one and only album Transient in 2004. Enjoy the audio stream above then follow the links below to check out Gaelle's myspace page and buy her album via amazon.

Soul sista N'Dambi is currently on tour promoting her most recent album Pink Elephant, which dropped early October of '09. Pink Elephant is N'Dambi's 4th studio album & she picks up right where she left off without skipping a beat! With the smooth cuts like "What It Takes", "Mind Blowin", & "Take It Out", this album is a definite must have! Check out the video for one of my favorites from the album, "Can't Hardly Wait". Follow the links below to hear the album version of the song and to support N'Dambi by purchasing her album.

One of hip hop's most prolific emcees Guru, is currently in critical condition after suffering a heart attack last weekend. Sources say that he has since slipped into a coma, reportedly caused by controlled drugs. Many false statements have been made on numerous sites about Guru's current heath status. The only person who has accurate info is Guru's Nephew, Solar. Watch the video above to get more info on Guru's condition. Our prayers go to Guru & his family. Stay tuned as I will be sure to keep you updated.
R&B veteran Chico DeBarge gets my pick of the day with his cut "Iggin Me" off his '97 release, Long Time No See. Be sure to grab his most recent album Addiction (09), a smooth lyrically deep album that addresses his issues & battles with drugs. Follow the link below to find more music from Chico at amazon.
