Darryl McDaniels ft. Sarah McLachlan
Just Like Me

A bit of context. DMC discovered that he was adopted when he was doing research to write his first biography. Sarah McLachlan is also an adoptee. So, from that perspective, it makes sense they've collaborated on this song and have a video with this sort of story. (BTW, I'm an adoptee too, so seeing two very successful brethren working together actually warms my heart.) Sarah's song "Angel" also helped him get through a rough spot when he was close to taking his own life and he's taken inspiration from her.

  1. I like the video, it was cool. Granted it took a few times to grow on me, but i like it. I actually saw the mini-doc it was enjoyable actually.

  2. I've read some of the reviews of his first solo album and there was a lot of this "what is he working with HER for?"

    I think the track is good too.

    However, I think a lot of what is going on is he's DMC, he raps and rappers don't work with artists like her. I'm glad he's still busting down lame expectations because before Run-DMC broke big there were many things rap acts "didn't" do.

    I notice no one says anything when Nirvana alum Dave Grohl and his group the Foo Fighters work with Norah Jones, but people have to talk when DMC works with Sarah McLachlan and she's an artist I've loved since her debut CD. Why wouldn't he work with her? She's been making great music for years.

    Interesting for sure.

    As for the documentary, he own an Emmy for it so you're not the only one who thought it was good ;-) I was pleasantly surprised to hear he was an adoptee who has taken the cause to his heart. It would be nice for us to not have such a big fight to know basic information about ourselves.

  3. Look at you! You're look absolutely smitten --in a good way, not a bad way, you know?

  4. I was in the midst of a hip-hop legend. I mean really. It was cool.
