From the Awl:

"Sounds so soulful, don't you agree?"

That's Jay-Z, breaking in to admire the long, pitched-down passage from "Try A Little Tenderness" that opens "Otis," the second official leak from Jay and Yeezy's Watch The Throne.

Since it's 2011, and Otis Redding's estate is well advised of its rights and powers, Redding is credited as a featured artist on the track, a featured role that almost makes it seem like "Otis" is the King of Soul's posthumous tribute to himself, "Unforgettable" minus the filial right, or attachment, to the seance.

Engaging in your own thing is a good mental health move and helps take the pressure off of a relationship. The Atlanta Post has rounded up six women who've seen beyond the current spoils of marriage to build something of their very own.

From PostBourgie:

When someone mentioned this to me a little while ago, I thought it was a joke. A sweaty James Brown jams with his band, and then invites Michael Jackson, who is in the audience, to join them. Michael then whispers something to James, and the two of them yield the stage to Prince.
