It's customary to dis your child's music, and I do my fair share. But the kid generally has good taste--he's going through a serious Eminem phase. And he's actually put me on to a couple--literally a couple--of things. This Gorillaz joint, for instance, is pretty fresh. The video is amazing (featuring Snoop and De la Soul animation.) I need to give the album a little more burn before I decide how I feel, but I love "Melancholy Hill." I'm lukewarm on the live version.
