Sing what I bought!

So… I  was at the Black Family Reunion here in DC on Saturday for the FREE concert. J. Moss (Whoever he is), Regina Belle (Grammy Award Winner), Chrisette Michel (Off The Hook), and Musiq Souldchild (WTF!) were all performing. I must say, that overall I enjoyed the show, but when that damn Musiq got on stage I thought I was going to really enjoy his performance, and to my surprise, it was just mediocre. He gets up on stage humming and lullabying and shit, and changing keys, and I’m like WTF! Can you just sing what I bought! I’ve purchased every one of his albums, and for the past 10 years have been a pretty solid fan. While, I’ll continue to support him, and remain a fan, I need to get in touch with his people somehow about him changing shit up on me. His vocals were lazy to a large degree, and then he had the audacity to get on stage and attempt to sing a song from the OnMyRadio album that he recorded with Mary J. Blige. I couldn’t believe that the chick that he chose to sing Mary J’s part was the best that he could have done. That shit was appalling and she sounded horrible. He would have done better singing the whole song his damn self. Then, while he’s up there changing keys, he must have forgotten the key he changed it to and then went back to the original. Talk about confused!  So shortly after that song, he starts singing another song and then stops the shit, just to start it all over again because he said it was too emotional for him. Damnit! If it’s too emotional, don’t sing the shit! Especially if you’re going to stop it, just to start it over.  I didn’t know what to do, so eventually I just got up and left. I had already been there for several hours and I had to go to the bathroom. But, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse he added a fucking go-go beat to his last song. Are you fucking serious Musiq? Really? The next time you do some foolishness like that I’m taking all of the damn CD’s back to the store. Get your lazy, key-changing, cock-eyed ass on that stage, and DAMNIT you better SING WHAT I BOUGHT!

  1. you see what had happened was he had some coke backstage right and so he had sat it down to go to the bathroom right and we he had came back out he was facing a different way so the eye in the out field assumed that the cup he saw was the one he had sat down right when all along it wasnt and it was jungle juice that taste like coke so when he had got out there he didnt even know what was happening to him so thats what you had saw or whatever


  2. ” Now you know you need an ass whippin” going on his angels in the outfield eyeball like that. Thats how the artist do it though. They sing to the gods of Jubilee for you purchase and when you see them in person they dont “Sing what I bought.”


  3. LOL, this whole entry sounds like it came directly from me. Only difference is, although I like some of Musiq’s songs, I’ve never bought any of his albums and I would’ve known not to expect much of a live show from him. As far as him getting emotional, that’s what I used to say in church when I forgot the words or I knew that I’d fucked up the song. Now, Chrisette Michelle on the other hand is da bidness!!! I love that girl.
