Hip hop on a spring day

I originally took today off as a vacation day thinking we would be tired after traveling back from central Iowa for Easter.
Little did I know influenza would strike, canceling our trip.
Now, we are all feeling significantly better, so today's vacation day feels like a celebration of good health -- finally!
I am listening to my ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP playlist while the girls (who are also off today) are doing some homework. Annika missed the entire week of school last week because of influenza.
The sun is shining (after sporadic snow flurries yesterday) and it finally feels like a spring day -- following an exceedingly long winter.
My playlist opens with "Rock and Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This)" by Handsome Boy Modeling School and includes plenty of tunes by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Ugly Duckling, Living Legends, A Tribe Called Quest, Digible Planets and The Pharcyde. All fun stuff.
There's a definitely West Coast bias, but hey, what would you expect?
You can take the boy out of Cali, but you can't take... well, you know.
