D???Angelo???s a ???Go???

by Winston "Stone" Ford

D'AngeloJust in case anyone???s wondering where he???s been, soulster D???Angelo will be featured on the upcoming remix to Go, the second single from Common???s current album Be, according to MTV.com. D???Angelo has been fairly incognito in recent years ??? we haven???t heard anything from him since his 2002 collaboration with Raphael Saadiq on the track You Should be Here (from the latter artist's Instant Vintage LP). Of course, there was that little incident last November involving D???Angelo???s arrest for drug possession and driving under the influence, but that doesn???t count.

D???Angelo – long considered a leader in the “neo-soul” movement – first made a name for himself with 1995???s electric Brown Sugar LP, followed by the Grammy award-winning Voodoo in 2000. It would be nice to think that this is his first step toward a long overdue return.

Now, if only someone could get Lauryn Hill back on track….

    Lauryn Hill is rumored to be making some kind of a comeback. But I wouldn't hold my breath for an album any time soon. Hopefully by 2007, she'll put something out.

    I must say, I am kind of psyched to hear the Go! Remix. Let's all pray that D'Angelo sounds better than he looked in that mugshot of his: http://www.mugshots.com/IMAGES/Mugshot__deangelo.jpg

    After string of run-ins with law, Grammy-Award-winning R&B singer D???Angelo appears to be taking steps to get his life together.

    A few days after his hearing on drug and alcohol charges in April, D???Angelo, otherwise known as Michael Eugene Archer, pledged to the court that he would seek treatment for substance abuse. D???Angelo, who lives in Midlothian, was also granted permission to leave the state to go to Los Angeles.

    ???He???s in some sort of rehab program out there,??? says Mark Krueger, senior deputy commonwealth???s attorney for Chesterfield County.
