Gotta Have Faith!!!

I just finished Keep the Faith, the new memoir by Faith Evans, one of my favorite vocalists and the widow of the Notorious B.I.G. (my favorite rapper of all time; check the Notorious C.R.A.I.G. shirt I wore in this photo shoot. The book is a great read, full of fun gossip about such hip-hop and R&B luminaries as B.I.G., Lil' Kim, Mary J. Blige, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Tupac, and Missy Elliott, among many others. But the main appeal of the book is the easy and honest way that Faith tells her story and how she's unafraid to expose her contradictions and complexities. (Who knew that this sweet-voiced church gal could also be such a blunt-smoking, gun-toting, butt-kicking bad ass?) Anyway, you can read my full review here.

I thought I'd also post a video of one of my favorite Faith songs, "Never Let You Go", courtesy of aNnenG09.
