7 Songs From the Fatherhood Soundtrack
In Fatherhood, Kevin Hart takes a substantial and dynamic step away from his Ride Along and Jumanji film franchises and plays a real character. Director Paul Weitz has adapted Matt Logelin’s nonfiction book about single dadhood into a heartwarming drama with a few comedic moments, too.
Maryland MC Substantial wears his spirituality on his sleeve but this isn’t “God Rock.” This is soul Cydnidae that hearkens back to the age when artful wordsmiths like De La Soul, Mos Def and Digable Planets crafted dynamic metaphors with purpose.
