    Not too bad, but it is definitely not their best song. If you listen to the rest of the album, there is much better stuff.

    Wow. I didn't know she was doing that stuff.

    Interesting.

    It was sorta weird seeing something so *hard* that had choreographed head moves.

    But again, interesting. Not bad sounding. Audio wasn't high enough quality for me to fully evaluate her voice.

    JMHO, but it kills me that someone as fine as her sounds like crap.

    +1. She's still fine in my book though.

    They opened for us in LA last year. She had her manager call the Key Club to ask to open, because she loved our music and would be "honored to open for us". In fact, Fish from Fishbone played drums for her.

    You have to see more videos. The project might be better than that video portrays. Plus, even after seeing that one video, I really think that project and Jada can be coached up to a much higher level. I think the potential is there. JMHO. :)

    Just saw your sig line for the first time:

    You know every Wooten lick, and not "My Girl". Sad

    Love it. That's awesome.

    wow, it's .... nu metal!

    She should make up her mind, or she sings, or she raps, now she's doing neither.

    Wow! That was a lot like the band I used to play in...I mean the muisc, but we never used pre-planned co-ordinated moves to parts of songs.

    I can't hear Jada's voice very well, but at times it seems as if the band is a little too heavy for her voice making her vocals sound flat. But I am amazed that Jada would be into that kind of music...I mean REALLY amazed. It is so different from how I picture her.

    But as a another woman whose image certainly didn't fit the nu-metal scene, I have to congratulate her for having the courage to step out of "type", do what she wants, have the passion and energy to do it and keep at it. You go gal!!!

    Oh, yes, kudos to Will Smith for not trying to stop Jada from following her dream. Some men wouldn't have the cajones to have their wife fronting a band with guys that look like that and play such heavy music.
