2007 is going to be the year of synergy, for sure. We were just talking about how Spielberg lifted 3 movies (at least!) from Marcus Raboy's video for Luscious Jackson's 1996 jam, "Naked Eye," when an announcement for LJ's upcoming greatest hits comp, creatively titled Luscious Jackson: Greatest Hits, magically appears in our inbox. And then we look at the playlist, which includes "Love Is Here" from A Life Less Ordinary, and it's like, Ewan MacGregor was way better in that than the Star Wars movies that all the nerds wanted Spielberg to direct, and maybe Danny Boyle should have directed that last Star Wars stinker and had Darth shoot smack when Padme died instead of going, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" But then, that's the best part of any of the new Star Warses, so what do we know? Marcus Raboy, meanwhile, directed Friday After Next which was not good at all, but co-starred Katt Williams who is the Mace Windu of comedy rap (Mace Windu, of course, being the real luscious Jackson. We should get a bong for the office.). Luscious Jackson: Greatest Hits comes out on February 20th, check the tracklist after the jump.
