Check out this two-part video interview with Jill Scott on the inspiration behind her new release The Real Thing. Tasty bits include:
- Family members to whom she's loaned money, and looked at her like she was crazy when she asked for it back.
- The onus our culture must accept when it comes to issues like Don Imus.
- The intense, adult themes employed on some of her new tracks and being newly single.
Jill Scott is just as alluring when she's humble and soft-spoken as she is when she belts from the soul. It's not my job to be excited about this album, but I am.
