ANGIE STONE Paris reviewApril 1, 2010
Check out this great review from ex-Vibe scribe Miles Marshall Lewis reviewing Angie’s recent Paris show for Generation Soul.
Writes Miles: “Commanding a seven-piece band decked out in Angie Stone tour T-shirts, the songstress whose artistry is timeless, began her hour-long set with “Play with It” (off 2007’s The Art of Love & War). And when she belted out the “you don’t wanna mess with me” refrain, truer words were never spoken. The 48-year-old singer began her career in the late ’70s as a third of pioneering female rap crew The Sequence. So when she exhorted the French to “wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care” and ran her “somebody, anybody, everybody scream!” routine, there was no pretense. Stone has more hiphop cred than the microwave pop stars half her age.”
