have you heard of funky c? i just heard about him recently. my friend from umg made me listen to his new album, Joya, which actually doesn't come out until May 15th. I was really surprised, I really, really enjoyed the album. He blends a lot of different genres together: hip hop, funk, soul, reggae, and r&b. the album rocks. i also found a site that you can check out more of his music>
