The Daily Dose

-So for those who haven’t heard 50′s Before I Self Destruct leaked yesterday.  I’m sure 50 is really pleased with that news.  I think I read Chris Lighty saying on Twitter that they are going to move his release date up due to the leakage.  Well I spent some time with the record this morning, and I really didn’t think it was all that great.  But let’s be honest I’m a little bit of a 50 Cent hater.  I thought his first album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin, was classic.  No one can ever take that away from him.  I also thought the first G Unit album was pretty ill.  But since then, 50 Cent hasn’t really been a rapper to me.  He’s just some guy who is really effective at making other rappers life difficult.  He stopped being a musician, and pretty much became a professional bully.  Not knocking his hustle, because he has managed to become a very wealthy professional bully.  My point is that, do we like 50 Cent as a personality?  Or as a rapper?  For more tracks off Before I Self Destruct go here.

-I dono what it is about Brisco but he seems to bring the best out of Wayne.  That “I’m The Truth” joint that they did together was one of my favorite songs Weezy has done in a minute.  I don’t really say that to compliment Brisco, because the only thing he is really good for is the ol’ broad daylight robbery story.

-Why is DJ Khaled still around?  Honestly.  Does anyone enjoy listening to him talk over songs and ruin them?  Initially I thought it was kind of funny.  I actually like his first album, We The Best.  I just think his whole template for music is a little played out.  The “Miami” music as I like to call it.  It was very pre-recession is you will.  Even if it makes me kind of a homo for saying that.

-Here is another joint off Fashawn‘s Boy Meets World.  Check out Jeremy’s review.  I thought it was pretty on point.  I think my expectations for the album were to high.  To be honest I like a lot of his mixtape stuff more than his album.

-I’m so greedy that I want Lupe on origonal music.  Correction I’m so greedy that I want Lupe on original hip-hop beats.  I guess the freestyle stuff will have to do.  Lupe just raps in such an intelligent manner.  I have to respect him.  Plus you can tell he is just a culture dude.  You could throw him into any “artistic” environment, and he would feel comfortable.

-Horse Shoe Gang is a group of Crooked I‘s brothers, and this track is off their Gangsta MC project dropping November 3rd.  I’m not a big fan of rappers siblings becoming rappers, but this isn’t to bad.
