Kelley L. Carter of the Detroit Free Press spoke with Musiq, who explained the method behind his musical slang, that has him turning ‘Just Listen’ into his latest album, ‘Juslisen’. “Every artist has his thing. I guess that’s my thing,” he said. “One day I was writing and I thought it was interesting. So I kept doing it,” he says. “There’s no real deep meaning behind it. It’s just like written slang, basically. Depending on who you’re talking to, you don’t necessarily speak properly according to standard grammar because you figure they already know where you’re coming from. That’s along the same lines.”
