The Flashback Fridays #1 For 4/4/14: K-Ci & Jojo - Life (1999)
Truly one of my favorite songs of all time from a movie that deserved to be cherished much more. "Life" was one of the most underrated films ever in my mind.
Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy were terrific, and so was their story of black wrong incarceration. Of course, a good bit of white movie critics didn't feel that way, but some others like the late Roger Ebert and the solid James Berardinelli understood the humor mixed with the pain.
It only made it fitting that K-Ci and JoJo fit the movie and wrong, black imprisonment to a tee with this sweet, soulfully emotional effort. So your first Friday flashback for the day, it's K-Ci and Jojo with "Life."
More to come at The Whole Delivery in a bit.
