1/ Speaking of James Burke "Connections"

Last night we took our kids thru 5 steps forward + back in time

from Nina Simone "Sinnerman" to @IAmKRSOne in 5 steps
(threading thru Thomas Crown Affair and Mos Def)

*STEP 1: Nina Simone "Sinnerman"...

2/ Which connects to one of the greatest heist scenes ever—Thomas Crown Affair...

3/ Which is a clever kinetic play on the static Magritte "The Son of Man"...

4/ Back to Sinnerman + Thomas Crown...the same piano is sampled in Talking Kweli "Get By"...

5/ and from Talib Kweli solo to duo Blackstar with Brooklyn's own Mos Def in "Definition"...

6/ Who took their BDP homage hook and beats of "1,2,3 Mos Def and Taleb Kweli"...directly from KRS-One @IAmKRSOne in BDP "Stop the Violence"...

Y-O.
QED.
