Jesse Boykins III Puts His Spin On James Blake’s ‘Limit’

I say this with the most respect possible: Jesse Boykins III bores me sometimes. Much in the same way that Dwele bores the absolute life out of me. Please be advised that this opinion is mine alone, since the rest SoulBounce crew hold their own opinions about artists I may deem bordering on genius. In any case, I have made my love for James Blake's "Limit To Your Love" clear. I was a little weary as I stood in the audience last Friday at 92YTribeca in New York City watching Jesse prepare to do a cover of one of my favorite songs in recent memory. But you know what? I liked it. I could do a bit without his overly sexy posturing, but those in attendance seemed to like it. The reggae spin he and his band put on this cover was actually apropos and worked well in the long run. Take a look of the live performance below.
