Our music review for this episode is Mary J. Blige's new album, "My Life II…The Journey Continues (Act I)." The album has some clear bangers like the "No Condition" and "Empty Prayers," perfect sequels to songs from the queen of hip-hop soul's 1994 classic "My Life." But other entries feel out of place and contrived. We tell you which ones.
The best music discussion on the Net also gives quick updates on the re-emergence of the legendary Loud Records, Lupe Fiasco's arrest at LAX, and Snoop Dogg's new music teaming with the Discovery Channel.
