Super, super, super late pass on this one. What can I say? I slept and I was punished. Nas had it right when he rapped “I never sleep. Cause sleep is the cousin of death.”  Wow. Okay, SO, Mayer Hawthorne. What the hell do I say about this dude? He’s amazing. His music brings back the old days of Motown/Soul. You can definitely hear the Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson influence on these songs. He makes amazing music. Stones Throw (the label that hosted J. Dilla, Madlib, etc) knew what they were doing when they signed this guy. This guy released his single on a vinyl disc shaped like a heart. What else do I need to say? Just listen and let the music carry you away.
