    The Year of Magical Thinking - How Bun B dealt with Pimp C's death.

    Bun B is hip-hop's grieving widower, the guy for whom you want to leave a pot roast on the front steps. You watch what you say around him, knowing that, less than three years after the death of his UGK partner Pimp C, the wound is still raw. Less ...

    Come as You Are - Pop muses help break the bond to Plush Lounge's previous occupant.

    Keith Sweat

    You know what's funny? We don't think we've heard an original Keith Sweat song in a decade, maybe since "My Body," the smoldering late-'90s slow jam he did with Johnny Gill and the late Gerald Levert when they briefly formed the soul-singing supergro...
