This playlist was inspired by a cool article by TheWellVersed on The 10 Non Hip-Hop acts to watch in 2011.  Ambrosia For Heads will always endeavor to serve you the best in hip-hop (old and new), but as with any good meal, sometimes you need a palate cleanser.  Also,  as all students of the game know, hip-hop has been deeply influenced by Soul music.  If hip-hop is the meal, Soul music is the fine wine that makes it complete.  Just press play, sit back and come and get your soul food, well well…
