G. Love Can't Stop Writing

When G. Love and Special Sauce released their self-titled debut album in 1994, it was received as part of hip-hop's expansion into alternative rock, folding the blues into a white kid's street life with live beats. Almost 20 years later, hip-hop is mainstream and G. Love can be heard as a forerunner of the current wave of Americana, embracing acoustic instruments and traditional forms to make contemporary music.
