Full Circle // D'Angelo in Paris

Oh my sweet gerkins!!!!! One of my fav neo-soul singers is back!
 D'ANGELO!!!!! *faints*

I found this jewel on World Star Hip Hop & was instantly revived and rejuvenated! He sounds (and looks, MMM!) good as ever performing his staple LP "How Does It Feel". I'm really hoping he puts out some new music for 2012 cause I think he would have an awesome slot to fill. PLEASE come back to us D!

Top 5 // Influential Films from African American Men

There are those films that make you change your whole concept of thinking. Films that are so influential, that they become staples and forever leave an imprint on the very core of you. CS took the time to inquire a few black men on some of those said films that made an impact on their lives. The group polled ranged of a diverse mix of ages, backgrounds and careers, yet there was definitely a crossover of cinema all felt were important...

  *in no particular order*

...Sorry for the wait!

I'm sure you've noticed...we was gone! LOL! But now renewed and empowered by solo ventures, Complex Simplicity is back on the map! Hopefully you guys perused and keep busy, but we have some new & exciting events, showcases and not to mention CS's own Cash's debut of her vintage blog! *squeal*

So stay tuned folks for the return of greatness and well...CS!!!

Top 5 // Movie Soundtracks

I love all things music, and I love movies. So naturally, listening to a movie's soundtrack is a given. I think these days, a lot of movies don't focus on the strength of a quality album associated with their features. So, I decided to list my favs for you guys. Please feel free to add your fav soundtracks or comment. Click that itty bitty "Read More" to see the list!
