Groove laden, smooth and lazy and just fuckin fun to wait for the next track. I love almost every one of G.Love's releases. I think he is a VERY innovative chef, blending blues and soul and rap and funk and rock with a very distinctive sound.

Often lays a song down with a loping, bouncy bass line, maybe adds some acoustic guitar, harmonica, snare drum rythym, his new cd integrates organ.
I haven't heard anybody quite like him. I imagine he's got to have influenced many, many new artists.

I don't know if he's had enough of a wide reaching appeal to merit HOF yet, but if you are evaluating the influencers of alternative hip-hop (like The Fugees, A Tribe Called Quest, Jurassic 5..) then G. Love has to be right there as a big innovator.
