Beatminer League: Marvin & Sizzurp

blame it on JES7 February 19, 2012

I’m in straight chill mode today. After digging through my crates, I decided to throw on some Marvin and revisit an album of his discography that gets sorely overlooked in my opinion: Here My Dear. Released during a time when disco commanded the Top 40 R&B charts, Marvin kept to his original essence, slow funk, rhythm-and-blues and some jazz thrown in the mix. The first joint featured in this post may take some of you back to 2000, pre-MTV Three 6 Mafia. Besides the sample nod, this is just some straight smooth shit. The next number, A Funky Space Reincarnation is one of my favorite Marvin jawns: eight minutes of interstellar funk. And lastly, After the Dance (from the 1976 album, I Want You) will make you get retarded. Cool out to these smooth joints. Put one in the air. It’s a lazy afternoon.

    I Want You is one of the best albums ever. Pound for pound, I prefer that over What’s Going On. I have Here My Dear to but I’ve never actually listened to it…after hearing “Is That Enough,” that shit is bout to change!…lol.

    So so dope. Good lookin out man.

    Here My Dear has always been my favorite Marvin Gaye album. As hard as it is to imagine something more personal and powerful to him as an artist than What’s Going On, this was definitely that and much more.

    Amazing to think it exists solely because Marvin was fulfilling part of his divorce settlement, its a haunting testament to what he was feeling and going through in his life at the time.
