What’s poppin?  I hope you all had a good weekend, and let’s get into some good music.

First off we got my favorite track of the day with Phil Blount on “Umbrella’s In The Rain”.  This dude Phil is out of New Haven (Connecticut), and is on his independent grind.  He’s just been sending in a track pretty much everyday.  This is definitely the best song he’s sent in.  I just love the sample, and the kind of depressing vibe on the track.  It’s definitely a perfect song for a Monday.  This track is just something you pop on when you need to clear out your fucking mind.  Check the dude out and show him some love.

 

Up next we got one of my favorites with T.I. on “A Better Day”.  From what songs I’ve heard off of Paper Trail, T.I.’s upcoming album, I’m getting pretty excited.  I think all the bullshit Tip had to go through on those gun charges really humbled the dude, which has affected the tone of his rhymes.  I think he realized it’s all the little things in life that really matter, not all the money and fame, and in order for him to appeal to the masses it was necessary for him to come to that realization.  I like T.I. for the same reason I like DMX, they’re both two dudes who habitually rap about the struggle within themselves to do the right thing.  They acknowledge all the wrongs they’ve done and continue to do, however ultimately they are trying to do the right thing.  I think that is something a lot of people relate to.  This track is hot, and definitely plays into the “improve your life” theme.

 

Then we got an oldish song that I’m throwing up because I missed it the first time it came around.  We got Young Chris with “Never Die”.  This track just goes hard.  Young Chris has been around for a minute having been one part of The Yung Gunz, but I’m really starting to buy into the dudes movement.  His joint “Paradise” with Weezy, may even be my song of the summer so far.  Just so you know the dude is over at Rocafella records and is out of Philly.  Like a said the track is a month or two old, but you should still give it a scope.

 

Finally we got some shit from Weezy that was pretty unimpressive, but with Wayne you gotta throw everything up.  Then we got Murda Inc’s Newz with Jada on “Homicide Music”.  This is just a hard street track.  Finally we got Main Flow with a song I’m tossing up just because the reggae sample on the hook is bonkers.  Well there it is.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email. Just send one or maybe two tracks.  It needs to be in an mp3 format and please only send me good stuff.  You can send it to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  Looking forward to hearing what you got.

What’s good people?  It’s Friday, and I’m feelin lovely so let’s get into it.  First off we got my favorite track of the day with RZA on “Try Ya Ya Ya”.  I just love the sample on this.  To be honest I’m a pretty casual Wu-Tang fan, with the exclusion of Ghostface who I seriously fuck with, but I know you Wu heads are very serious about their shit.  There is someone else featured on this track, but I can’t figure out who it is.  Does anyone know?  This track is hot, and if you’re into the Wu stuff you definitely got to give it a listen.

 

Up next we got Serius Jones with “Unsolved Mystery”.  Serius was signed on Luda’s DTP imprint , but was recently dropped.  I don’t know how dedicated my readership is, but if you’ll remember I completely predicted that.  Some rapper from Jersey has no business on DTP.  I just like the reggae vibe on this joint.  I always feel like I should listen to more reggae, but there are only so many hours in a day, and I spend the majority of those hours completely engulfed in listening to rap music.  I’m not complaining, I just feel like sometimes I need to broaden my horizons.  This track has a little reggae/gangster feel to it, and you should listen to it.

 

Then we got Mikkey Halsted with “Hustlas Need Luv 2”.  I’ve written about Mikkey before, and the dude is becoming more and more official in my mind.  The dude is out of the Chi and is signed on the Uncrowned City/Beat Machine/Virgin imprint.  He’s just on his game lyrically, and I’m excited to hear more from the dude.  Give him a listen.

 

Finally I got some quick things to say on the last three.  We got the dude XV on “Vizzy Vizzy Vizzy”.  He’s out of Wichita, Kansas of all places, and has a different futuristic type sound.  Then we have Game who wants to contribute his 2 cents to all the Young Buck-50 Cent fuckery.  It seems a little unnecessary, but whatever.  Then we got a little R&B with Mario on a Scott Storch joint. There it is.  Have fun this weekend.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.

What’s up?  Let’s do this already.  First up we got Nipsey Hussle ft The Game with “Bullets Remix”.  This is my second time writing about Nipsey.  The dude is signed over at Cinematic/Epic, and I’m officially going to download the dude’s Mixtape and give him a serious listen.  I was scoping some songs and videos on the dudes myspace jump off, and I’m kind of feelin his swagger.  It’s definitely a west coast sound, but he comes off with a unique delivery at the same time.  If you want to make it in the music business these days, you have to distinguish yourself from the rest of the competition, so we’ll just have to sit back and see if Nipsey can pull it off.

 

Then we got David Banner ft Nas with “Middle Finger”.  This is pretty much a fuck the police type track, which ironically happens to be my stance on the police.  I mean yes they do serve a necessary service to a certain extent, but in most of my experiences with the police I just end up getting harassed for victimless crimes.  Plus like I’ve said before I think the entire American criminal justice system is completely fucked.  Wait aren’t we here to talk about music?  Ya this track is hard, and you should listen to it.

 

Up next we got DJ Sams ft N.O.R.E., Gangsta Boo & Bobby Valentino with “I Love You No More”.  I was interested to hear this track just due to the randomness of artists featured on it.  Who the fuck would think to see these three artists together on a track.  It’s actually kind of funny since yesterday I was talking about how I liked Three 6 better when they had Gangsta Boo on their tracks, and then she comes out of left field to be featured on a track with N.O.R.E and Bobby Valentino of all people.  This is kind of a clubbish type track, but I’m sure some of you heads will like it.

 

Real quick lets go over the last three.  We got Slim Thug’s group the Boss Hogg Outlawz ft Ray J with “Keep It Playa”.  This song is a lot better then I expected it to be.  Most rapper’s try to create these groups after they’ve had some success, and 90% of the time they suck, but the Outlawz might be an exception.  Then we got Immortal Technique ft Crooked I & Chino XL with “Lick Shots”.  Immortal has always been too much of a crazy conspiracy theorist for me, but I know he has a dedicated fan base. Crooked’s verse is superior to everyone else’s anyway.  Then we got Tech N9ne ft Scarface with “Pillow Talkin”.  I haven’t heard anything from Tech in a minute, but to be honest I was more interested in hearing from Scarface.  Well there it is.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.

What’s good people?  You know the routine so let’s do this.  First off we got one of my favorite groups, The Clipse, with “Fast Life”.  This is a Scott Storch beat, and it’s definitely not  the Neptunes style tracks I’m used to hearing them on.  I believe this track is off The Re-Up Gang album that is dropping sometime in the near future.  Overall I like this track, but it doesn’t really emphasize how sick Malice and Pusha T are lyrically.  Clipse is just one of those groups that can do no wrong as I’m concerned.  They’re just the truth.

 

Up next we got Mannie Fresh ft The Show & Lil Wayne with “Imma Get Mine”.  I haven’t scene or heard from Mannie in a minute now so I was intrigued to give this track a listen.  I’m sure he’s been cooking up beats and I just haven’t connected the dots that he was behind some of the tracks I’ve been listening to.  I’m always going to like Mannie for those crazy beats he cooked up with the original Cash Money crew, even if the guy looks like a turtle.  This isn’t especially unique, it’s just typical Mannie Fresh.

Finally we got Bozack Black Sox ft Nate Dogg with “Life”.  They either sent this track to me, or someone in their crew did.  I just gave it a listen and thought it was hot.  I’m not really sure if this Nate Dogg hook is original or they jacked it from somewhere.  Does anyone know?  Isn’t Nate Dogg about to die or something?  Well these Bozack cats are from Cali and are doing there thing independently.  I’m a little lacking on info on these guys, but the track is hot and perfect for summer.  Whenever Nate Dogg is involved there is a good chance you should be blazin while listening to it.  Give it a listen.

 

Just some quick notes on the other tracks.  I hate all the beef in the game these days.  It’s so stupid.  You either make good music or you don’t, and I really don’t care if rappers don’t like each other.  That being said I kind of feel bad for Young Buck.  Ya he looks like a little bitch on those taped convos with 50, but who does 50 think he is taping his conversation.  Dude is acting like the police and not a “gangsta” rapper.  Like I said I think all these theatrics are pretty stupid and can’t wait for it to go away.  Then we got a Three 6 Mafia track.  I’m a little disappointed with these guys.  They pretty much sold out, and they used to be one of my favorite southern groups.  I always enjoyed how blunt and grimy they were, and now there doing tracks with Lyfe Jennings.  I kind of miss the Crunchy Black and Gangsta Boo days.  Then we got a little Mariah Carey joint for you R&B heads.  Enjoy.

What’s poppin people?  I was a little disappointed with what came out today, but let’s get into it.  First off we got Lil Wayne with “Real Rap”.  I’m pretty sure this is off a Big Mike Mixtape, however I’m lacking on the name of the tape right now.  This track is kind of average.  Weezy is kind of spittin like a normal rapper on this, which takes away his whole appeal.  I’ve had Tha Carter III on non-stop rotation on my I-Pod.  The album is definitely sick, and it’s pretty much what I expected.  I don’t know if it will get classic status, but it’s definitely worth paying $14.00 for.  There aren’t many rappers out these days who I would give $6.00 to for their album.  That’s what frustrates me about the game.  I love listening to a whole album, and seeing an artist develop, but the majority of the dudes out these days don’t have more then 4 or 5 good tracks on their shit.  It just pisses me off.

 

Up next we got Erykah Badu ft Pharoahe Monk with “The Healer Hip Hop Remix”.  This is just a funky laid back type track.  I know Pharoahe has been around for a minute, and to be honest I just haven’t listened to enough of his stuff to really say anything about him.  I know I’ve heard nothing but good things about the dude from people whose opinions I value.  So I’m indirectly co-signing the dude, and you should give him a listen.

 

Finally we got GLC with “Ridin By Yourself”.  This dude is out of Chi-Town and is signed over at G.O.O.D. Music, with Kanye, Common, and those folks.  That alone is a pretty big co-sign.  I definitely need to step up my game on this dude.  I like how he kind of has a southern swagger to his spit, but I’ve been told the Chi can kind of be like that.  I guess were just going to sit back and see what comes from the dude.

 

Got a little R&B and some other Mixtape type tracks for you to scope as well, so remember to give those a listen.

What’s good people?  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Let’s make this a quick one today.  First off we got Bloodraw ft Trina with “What’s Happening”.  This is just your standard southern track.  I always thought Bloodraw was just one of Jeezy’s flunky homies that had no business in a recording booth, but I’ve actually come to like the dude.  He’s actually out of Panama City, FL and the dude has a very distinct sound and delivery.  Plus I’m pretty sure a bunch of his co-horts from Panama City flipped on him, and he had to go to court on a conspiracy to distribute more then 10 keys of blow charge. He ended up manning up and beating the case.  I’m not saying he’s cool because he used to sell drugs, but it’s always nice to see someone who wasn’t completely screwed over by the American judicial system.

 

Up next we got Game ft X.O. with “I Dare You”.  This is just a hard Mixtape track, and I feel like I’ve been slacking on these type joints.  I think Game is supposed to drop a Mixtape today, but sometimes those things don’t go down until later in the night.  Whenever it comes out I’ll try and link the free download.  I’m actually a pretty big Game fan, so I’m always eager to hear whatever he comes out with.  This song is pretty much what you would expect.

 

Finally we got LL Cool J with “Rocking With The Goat”.  I’m not really a big LL fan, so I’ll have to disagree with the dude labeling himself the GOAT.  However, you do have to respect the longevity of the guy’s career.  It’s definitely an accomplishment to have a 20 plus years of relevancy in hip-hop.  I just don’t understand why the guy had to have his shirt off the whole time.  We get it LL, you have nice abs, how about you worry about your lyrical content.  This song is nice though and you should give it a listen.

 

I’m sorry.  I never thought I would put a Soulja Boy track up.  It’s just so bad it’s good.  Plus the young heads like the stuff.

What it is?  It’s Friday, so I’m as happy as could be.  Plus it’s summertime in New York City, so there are to many pretty girls walking around with no clothes on to be mad about anything.  First off we got the next great white hope, with Asher Roth on “The Lounge”.  He’s just this white suburban kid out of Philly who dropped a Don Cannon/DJ Drama Mixtape called The Greenhouse Effect.  I think he just got discovered through his myspace jumpoff, and now Steve Rifkind signed this dude over at Universal.  The dude is kind of bonkers, I must admit.  I’m going to try and spend some more time with this Mixtape over the weekend, but we might be seeing this kid do big things.

 

Up next we got another new guy to the game.  It’s Mikkey Halsted with “Love Song”.  Mikkey is out of Chi-Town and is signed to the Uncrowned City/Beat Machine/Virgin imprint.  This is kind of a bold statement, but Chicago’s hip-hop scene might be the best out right now.  I feel like half the new guys coming out these days that have me even a little bit excited are from the Chi.  However, I think it’s pretty stupid how people get caught up in which region of the country is “the hottest”.  Hip-hop just continues to become more and more diverse in its sound, and I’m not mad at that for a second.  So here is a little Chi-Town flavor for you.

 

Then we got to fill my R&B quota with Ryan Leslie ft Cassie & Fabolous on “Addiction Remix”.  I’m a little late to the game on this Ryan Leslie dude, but he is a pretty big-time songwriter and producer.  He obviously sings to, so it appears as if the dude can do everything.  All I know is Cassie is on the track, and I could write an erotic short story on what I would do to that girl.  Fab also does his thing on the track.  As far as R&B goes I can definitely fuck with this.

 

Finally I’m going to talk real quick about the other three tracks.  “Can’t Figure It Out” by Bishop Lamont and “Harlem Shuffle” by 40 Cal both have crazy samples on the hook.  The Bishop track is sick though and you gotta scope it.  Then we got Curren$y spittin over an old Big Pun beat if I remember correctly.  Can anyone tell me why this dude isn’t signed?  Maybe he just caters to my taste but Curren$y seems to good to be ignored the way he is.  Well there it is.  Have a good weekend.

What’s good people?  Fuck the formalities lets do this.  First of we got Rosco P Coldchain ft Pharell with “Pussy”.  This dude Rosco is out of Philly and is signed over at Star Track.  I just like his name, it’s mad original.  Plus by now everyone should know that the more vile and graphic a song is, the more I love it.  It’s just a really low key chill song that happens to be about getting pussy.  Who doesn’t like to be low key and chill while getting some pussy?

 

Up next we got a track from Tyga featuring Lil Wayne called “I Am”.  This is a bonus track off Tyga’s album No Introduction which dropped this past Tuesday.  I like this song, but I’m not really feeling Tyga in general.  I’ve only heard a couple of his songs and they tend to come off as being a little corny.  Plus he has Pete Wentz making a cameo in one of his videos.  What rapper wants Pete Wentz’s emo-ass in their video?  I also think he got his chains merked by one of 40 Glocc’s boys.  Check out the video here.

 

Finally we got Bishop Lamont with “One Night”.  This is off of his Mixtape The Confessional which came out this week, and to be honest it’s pretty sick.  It’s pretty much all original beats from these young producers in Dre’s Aftermath camp, so you know the production is legit.  This song is pretty much describing Bishop’s refusal to enter any form of a monogamous relationship.  With lines like “I Think you got me mixed up with Mr. Right I’m not him/ I’m Mr. Right now, here to put the pipe down” I knew this song was a winner.  Check it out.

 

Definitely scope the other tracks I didn’t write about today.  Just because I didn’t write about them doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a listen.

What’s up?  I’m tired so let’s do this shall we, I have high end marijuana I should be smoking right now.  First off we got the boy Busta Rhymes with “Breathin Like That”.  This song in just a strand of metaphors for sex, which always makes life more exciting.  This track isn’t on Busta’s upcoming album Blessed, which I don’t really care about.  I don’t even think I’ve copped anything from Busta in this millennium; however I could be wrong about that.  He seems like a good dude though, so he has that going for him.  Plus he comes from an era where rappers actually became rich from record sales so what the fuck does he have to complain about.

 

Up next we got Plies with “Thug Section”. I’ve said before that I like Plies and that he always keeps it grimy.  I’m going to have to question his gangster though considering his legal name is Algernod, and the dude has a college degree from the University of South Florida.  That means Plies has more of an education than I do.  I’m not hating on the fact the dude went out and educated himself, but he’s fronting like he’s super street and gangster.  Maybe he is, however I don’t know too many street dudes lugging around a college diploma.  That all being said I do really like the guy’s music and will continue to look out for stuff from him.

 

Finally we got Fabolous with “A Millie Freestyle”.  Everyone and their sister has been doing remixes/freestyles on this instrumental, and to be honest it’s getting annoying.  Then Fab came out of no where and absolutely destroyed it.  I don’t really like it when rappers freestyle on jacked beats, but this is just too sick.  I’m a little late to the game on admiring Fabolous’s greatness, but his Mixtape with DJ Drama There Is No Competition that came out a couple months ago is fucking sick, and stays on my I-Pod rotation.  I just think this dude does no wrong with his metaphors and delivery.  He keeps it fresh, unlike the majority of the competition.

 

Definitely scope the other tracks I didn’t write about today.  Just because I didn’t write about them doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a listen.

What’s poppin people?  I’m sorry you missed out yesterday, but I was a little under the weather.  While I was sick I decided I’m gunna fuck with the format a little.  Why?  Because I can that’s why.  I’m going to give you the same amount of writing as usual, but I’m going to throw in more tracks to download.  The most important thing is that you get the music, and fuck what I think about.  We all have different tastes and I’ll respect yours if you respect mine.

 

My favorite track from the day is from an un-signed group out of Atlanta that is called Holly Weerd.  This track is called “Have You Ever Made Love To A Weerdo”, and it is pretty weird, but I’m lovin it.  I almost want to say it’s kind of like Dungeon Family or some shit.  You know it’s got that Cee-Lo and Andre 300 flavor to it.  I don’t care who you are, if you remind me those two people that is a very good sign.  This is definitely more on the abstract side, but we all need to hear shit like this now and then.  What do you guys think?

 

Up next we got Nipsey Hussle ft The Game with “They Roll”.  I’m not going to even front like I’ve heard of this dude Nipsey before, so I can’t really judge him from one track.  This dude is from LA though and it appears as if he’s bangin crip if that kind of stuff matters to you, it doesn’t to me.  It looks like he is signed over at Cinematic Music Group, which has distribution through Epic.  We’ll have to see if anything else comes from this dude.  This track is just mad laid back and something you spark and L to.  It’s definitely got a west coast vibe to it, so give it a scope.

 

Then we got the first track from Jae Millz since the dude got signed over at Weezy’s label Young Money.  The track is called “That Cash”.  It’s pretty much what you would expect.  Millz just wants us to know how much money he has, how gangster he is, and just generally wants us to know how much cooler he is then us.  However, I’m not really buying.  This track is perfectly decent, but you’d think Jae would come out with something hotter then this as his re-introduction  to the hip-hop world.

 

Finally we got a track that is going to piss off the traditionalists.  We got Yung Joc with “BooKoo”.  This track is mindless and stupid but I still think its fuckin awesome.  I’ve talked about Mike Jones syndrome before, which means that sometimes there is rap out there that is so bad, it’s actually kind of good.  Yung Joc is definitely part of that contingent.  I love hip-hop that makes you think about the complexities of our society, but sometimes I just wanna hear about big rims and fucking bitches.  Who doesn’t love obnoxiously big rims and fucking bitches? 

 

Definitely scope the other tracks I didn’t write about today.  Just because I didn’t write about them doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a listen.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.  It needs to be in an mp3 format and please only send me good stuff.  I don’t want to find diamonds in the rough, I only want diamonds.  You can send it to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  Looking forward to hearing what you got.

Whats good people?  Any one catch that game last night?  It was quite the doozy and has me excited for more.  Let’s get into the music.  First off we got the boy Styles P ft Wyclef with “Understand Me”.  Styles just continues to impressive me with the content of his music.  Styles is starting to remind me of how Scarface is right now.  These guys are both very established as far as their legacies go, but their kind of changing their styles up a little bit.  It used to be all drugs and bitches with these two dudes but they both seem to be maturing and spittin about topics that actual matter, and affect their communities.  Just getting their old man on, if you will.  It’s like I say, if you don’t wake up every morning trying to take a step away from the person you were the day before, you ain’t doing much of anything. 

 

Up next we got CNN with “Hug The Block”.  I like how they used the auto-tuner on this track.  Most times the effect is kind of used to pussify tracks, but the auto-tuner is kind of tough on this track.  CNN does what they always do and keep it gritty with the back and forth between Capone and Nore.  This track is off of the DJ Whoo Kid Mixtape Back On That Q.U. Shit, so be on the look for that.

 

Finally we got Nas with “Hero”.  This is supposedly the second single off his new album, but it doesn’t seem hot enough for some single action to me.  I’ve always been really conflicted on Nas.  Obviously Illmatic is a classic, and I Am is also pretty dope, but those are the only Nas albums I really fuck with.  I guess what I’m saying is that I don’t think Nas is nearly as cool as everyone else.  I don’t even think he makes my top ten.  I’m sure people might give me some shit for that, but that’s honestly how I feel.  Don’t get it twisted Nas is nicer then the majority of the dudes in the game, but that’s more of a reflection of where the game is at then it is on Nas.  Well give this a listen and judge for yourself.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.  It needs to be in an mp3 format and please only send me good stuff.  I don’t want to find diamonds in the rough, I only want diamonds.  You can send it to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  Looking forward to hearing what you got.

What up Dosers?  Who else is ready for KG to smack Kobe across his stupid little face during the NBA Finals?  The Celtics are about to remind everyone in the NBA that Boston is the most storied franchise in NBA history, and I couldn’t be more excited.  Let’s get into the music though.  First off we got Lil Wayne ft Mack Maine and T-Pain with “Got Money Remix”.  The original just had Weezy and T-Pain on it.  This song just takes the played out formula of rappers rhyming about how cool they are, then hey let’s toss a T-Pain hook in there.  That doesn’t mean I don’t like the track it’s just a little unoriginal.  Mack Maine is singed over at Young Money/Cash Money, however the only dude that had some spit on Young Money, Curren$y, isn’t even on the label any more.  I guess Wayne had more important things to do like get high and say crazy shit then manage his label.  Look at the title of the track and who’s on it, and it should give you a perfect idea of what to expect.

 

We got some different type shit up next with “Anti Matter” by N.E.R.D.  This song is just kind of crazy.  N.E.R.D. always has some crazy rock type funkiness going on, and this track is no different.  I like N.E.R.D., and certainly respect their musical ability.  That being said I’ve always had trouble listening through a whole N.E.R.D album.  There is always so much shit going on in the production side sometimes its just over stimulating.   This song is nuts though and you should scope it.

 

Then we got the boy Mickey Factz with “6 Letter Words”.  I’m officially co-signing Mickey and saying that the dude is dope.  This track is pretty much about the word “Nigger”, and he makes some pretty articulate points through rhyming which is always impressive.  It’s always a good sign when an artist can make a hot track, as well as making a song with a point.  I’m getting more and more excited to see what comes from this dude, and I’ll be sure to always toss up his shit in the audio section, so be on the lookout.

 

Finally we got another dude who has just been sending in his shit, and this is by far the hottest rack he’s sent in.  It’s Phil Blount with “Mirror, Mirror”.  This song is just really grimy and the hook is fucking bonkers.  I just envision this track being made in some shitty basement filled with blunt smoke, and that’s exactly what hip-hop should be.  This dude Phil Blount is out of New Haven, and is just on his independent grind.  I’ll show him some love and you should to.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.  It needs to be in an mp3 format and please only send me good stuff.  I don’t want to find diamonds in the rough, I only want diamonds.  You can send it to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  Looking forward to hearing what you got.

What’s good?  There weren’t many big names coming out with anything today, but don’t think for a second that the underground dudes ain’t got some hot shit for you.  First off we got Rowdy Rahz with “To My Fans”.  This dude just emailed me his shit, and it was hot so I had to throw it up.  On his myspace he’s claiming New Jersey and ATL, and he’s doing his thing on Stackmovement Ent.  The sample on this joint is pretty crazy, and it’s definitely worth a listen. 

 

Up next we have an old un-released track from Lupe Fiasco called “Cold World”.  This is not the Lupe I’ve become used to, but it is definitely a cool track.  The Cool is just crazy, and I’m habitually listening to that thing, so when I ever see Lupe’s name I get a little excited.  He’s one of the few rappers who forces me to think about his rhymes even when I’m not listening to his shit.  He doesn’t sell rhymes, he sells ideas, and I can’t think of anything more powerful than that.  This track is a little more gritty then what I would have expected, but I’m definitely not disappointed with what Lupe does on the thing.

 

Finally we got Lunch ft Akon with “Natural Born Hustla”.  I had trouble finding info on the dude, but apparently he is from Inland Empire Moreno Valley out in Cali.  I have no idea where that is, but he is reppin the Homeless Nation crew.  I think Lunch is making some serious waves on the West Coast indie scene, although I’ll be the first to admit I need to step up my game on the west coast indie scene.  At the end of the day though the details are irrelevant because this song is fuckin hot.  It’s got a good balance between sounding too commercial or to street.  Give it a listen, and we’ll see what else this dude comes out with.

 

As always be sure to check out the audio section for the rest of the songs that came out today.  I’m now accepting music from anyone that wants to send it in.  Put the name of the song and artist(s) in the title of the email and any additional info in the body of the email.  It needs to be in an mp3 format and please only send me good stuff.  I don’t want to find diamonds in the rough, I only want diamonds.  You can send it to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  Looking forward to hearing what you got.

What it do?  I’m crazy busy, and today was pretty slow so lets be on the quick side today.  First off we got J Valentine ft Gucci Mane with “Freaky”.  This dude J Valentine is out of The Bay and according to his myspace he is signed to J Records.  Gucci Gucc is just trying to be on as many songs as possible with the word freaky in the title.  This track is kind of heavy on the synths, but at the end of the day I like it.

 

Up next we got Alfamega supposedly featuring T.I., but the only time I heard Tip was when he introduced the track, with “Uh Huh”.  Alfamega is from Atlanta and is signed over at Grand Hustle.  You might have heard a “$500 Bottles” track from him a month or two ago.  This guy is perfectly decent, but I highly doubt the dude will get a major release, then again all the majors are on these Atlanta dudes dicks so you never know.

 

Finally we got Vic Damone ft Rick Ross with “Go Hard”.  Vic Damone is doing his thing independently and is from the Southside of Queens.  All I know is that his heroes on myspace is listed as “The person who invented the all mighty dollar.  He’s a mothafuckin GENIUS”  So Vic is pretty thoughtful when it comes to the people who have influenced his life.  I like the track, but I kind of had to make fun of him for that.  Give it a scope.

What’s poppin people?  The weekend was a good one, especially with all that new Wayne leaking.  Shouts to The Cartel for as always making my job easy.  First up we got a track off the Carter III that I didn’t really see anyone else toss up so I guess I might as well.  It’s Weezy ft Babyface of all people with “Comfortable”.  This is probably one of the most toned down tracks off the Carter III.  It’s just kind of normal, at least for Wayne.  Either way I liked it so give it a scope.

 

Then we got Ricky Ross with Shawna & Triple C with “Money Make Me Cum Remix”.  From the title alone I knew it was dose worthy.  Even though I talk a lot of shit about female rappers I kind of like Shawna.  I saw here perform with Luda a couple years back and she was fucking sick.  Ricky does what he does and Triple C is still trying to act like he is going to be anything besides Ross’s homeboy.  Whatever this song is full of inappropriate sexual innuendos, which is a sure way to get me to promote you.

 

Up next we got LL Cool J ft Trey Songz with “Girl If I”.  I’ve never really been a big fan of LL, but this track is pretty hot.  I’m not really and r&b guy either, but its been hard not to notice all the moves Trey Songz is making.  I’ve seen the dude interviewed a couple times, and he seems like a stand up dude.  All the street rappers are going to Trey Songz when they need that r&b vibe, so maybe the kid even has a little gangster to him.  It’s not like this kid is a nobody, but I think he could be well on his way to being a somebody.

 

Finally we got Macy Gray ft The Game with “Only In The Dark”.  I’ve always liked Macy, not really for her music, but just the way she talks.  Plus her scene in Training Day with Denzel and the fake warrant is fucking classic.  When I first saw this track I listened to it to hear Game, but when all is said and done I’m more impressed with what Macy did on the thing.  Listen to it and judge for yourself.

What’s good people?  Shit is always on the slow side Friday’s, but who cares the weekend is here.  Lets get into it.  First of we got Rick Ross featuring  Trey Songz, Shawty Lo, Triple C, Flo-Rida, Brisco & Birdman with “This Is The Life Remix”.  Of all the people on this track I might like Shawty Lo’s verse the best.  From what I’ve heard from Shawty so far he is either really catchy and hot, or absolutely terrible.  Dude needs to step up his consistency.  Speaking of being absolutely terrible, Birdman is trying to pull off a little Weezy swagger on his delivery and he fails miserably.  Why does anyone even let this dude spit on their shit?   Overall the track is solid with a lot of big names on it so give it a listen.

 

Up next we got a track that is actually from yesterday, but I’m throwing it in today’s dose.  We got Mickey Factz ft Jade with “Naturally”.  For some reason I don’t want to like Mickey.  Possibly because he’s being labeled as hipster rap, and whenever I hear the word hipster I get pissed off.  It doesn’t really matter what the fuck they call it cause this shit is ill.  It’s got and a heavy jazz influence which civilizes it to a certain extent.  I just love the line “Dog studying was whack/specially when I can make money off of rap”.  That pretty much sums up my feelings on education. 

 

Finally we got Charles Hamilton out of Harlem with “BK Girls”.  I said in an earlier post that this dude has a lot of hype behind him, and he recently inked a deal with Interscope.  The dude is definitely nice, but I don’t know if he’s living up to the hype.  Plus what’s with his name, it sounds likes like he’s a young republican or some shit.  Whatever, scope the shit and we’ll just have to see what this kid comes out with in the near future.

What’s up? Here it is.  First off we got the jam with Young Chris and Weezy with “Paradise”.  This track is just sick and perfect for the summer.  Wayne’s verse is mainly dedicated to how he refuses to stop taking drugs, but are you surprised?  Everyone is giving him shit for getting fucked up and saying crazy shit, but this is the exact reason I think he’s great.  Expect to see The Carter III all over the internet soon.  This is good, listen to it.

 Up next we got Styles P with “Music”.  I called him ok in an earlier post and someone called me out for underrating Styles.  I’m going to go ahead and co-sign my bush league call and say Styles is the truth. .  Super Gangster is heaving in my ipod rotation, and he keeps coming out with good shit.  This track is a little low key, but I always like to have a couple of those.

 Finally we got Reks with “Say Goodnight”.  I listened to this song and my immediate response was, I think I just heard rap music.  It’s a DJ Premier track and it does what you would expect it to do.  This kid Reks is from the Bean (Boston for you amateurs), and is doing his thing independently, but with a Premier beat it looks like he’s making moves.  We’ll see where he ends up.

 As always check out the other tracks that came out in the audio section.  If you want to send in your music you can send an mp3 to featuredaudio@crackspace.net .  Put the name of the artist(s) and the song title in the header of the email, and additional info in the body of the email.  I only want the best.

What’s poppin people?  Today was a little slow, but let’s see what we got.  First of we have the king of swagger Jim Jones with “Good Shit”.  I’m sure Jim would be the first to admit that he isn’t the best rapper, because he isn’t.  The dude has such an energy about him that he doesn’t even need to be that ill on wax for things to pop off.  I’ve always been a fan of the guy and expect big things from him now that he’s linked up with Rick Rubin and Columbia for his next album.  The song’s pretty good and worth checking out.  In related news there is a Jim Jones documentary dropping, and you can scope the trailer here.

 

Up next, we got Bishop Lamont from the left coast with “City Lights”.  I know the dude is on Aftermath, but I think I need to step my game up on the familiarity of this dude.  The track is produced by DJ Khalil, who is the new dude Dre is plagiarizing all his work from.  The hook has a little rock vibe to it, and I like it.  Bishop has a free mixtape called The Confessional that is dropping on June 1st so be on the look for that.

 

Finally we got my favorite track of the day.  We got St. Laz with “Life In Brooklyn”.  St Laz is doing it pretty big on the underground scene and is currently unsigned.  We’ll have to see what happens with the dude.  He’s obviously out of Brooklyn, and this track just goes hard.  I was doing a little table drumming and everything when I heard the track.  I’m sure you guys won’t think it’s as good as me but whatever.

What’s good people?  I had a nice relaxing long weekend and hope you guys had the same, but let’s jump into what we are all here for.  First off we got Rick Ross ft Pharell with “Get Down”.  I’m not a huge Pharell fan, but I do really like Neptunes beats, so I guess that makes me like the dude by default.  Pharell always keeps it sexy on the production side, and sometimes you got to diversify from all the street shit.  Ricky Ross just does what he always does on this one.  I’m blanking on which magazine it is right now, but Ricky is on the cover shirtless just letting all the fat hang out.  I like the swag he is going with on that.  If you’re rich and famous, why wouldn’t you be fat?  Girls are going to throw themselves at you anyway, you might as well get your grub on.

 

Up next we got Ice Cube with “Do Your Thang”.  I’ve always liked Cube, and his last album Laugh Now, Cry Later got severely slept on.   Now Cube exclusively makes terrible movies (except for Friday), but you can’t argue that the dude can rap.  Plus he is laughing all the way to the bank.  Most rappers front like there bank account is much bigger then it really is, but Cube is getting that movie money so I’m not knocking his hustle.  This track is worth a listen especially if you’re a fan of one of the originators of that West Coast sound.

 

Finally we got Max B ft Henny with “G’d Up”.  Max B is just keeping it “Waaaavvvy” on this one.  I’m not gunna lie, I think Max is kind of a fucking clown, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think the dude is talented.  I just don’t understand why the he would go at Jim Jones the way he did.  Doesn’t he know Jim was his best shot at really making it.  I’m sure Jim was screwing him out of money, but this is hip-hop, you gotta pay your dues before you get your shine.  I definitely think the Max is unique though, and I’m interested to see what happens with the guy’s career.

What’s good people?  We got some good weather, and a three day weekend coming up so I’m pretty pumped.  I got some fire tracks to bump at the memorial day weekend BBQ or whatever festivities you’re getting into.  First off we got Hot Rod from G-Unit on this Whoo Kid track called “He’s A Beast”.  The Weezy hook alone was worth a post on the dose, but Hot Rod’s verses are pretty good.  I still don’t see a major release coming from this dude, but maybe he’ll step his game up.  The track bumps so listen to the thing.

 

Then we got Jadakiss going real hard on “Hustler’s Prayer”.  Jada as usual does not disappoint on wax and keeps it mad grimy.  Plus having the Biggie sample on the hook doesn’t hurt.  I’ve been hearing some good shit come out of New York recently, and I’m getting pretty excited.  With shit like  “It’s like trying to roll the dutch with the windows down”, you most definitely gotta give this one a chance.

 

Up next we got a banger.  It’s Busta Rhymes with half the world a.k.a Reek Da Villian, Spliff Star, Lil Wayne, Nas, The Game, and Big Daddy Kane with “Don’t Touch Me (Throw Da Water On Em) Remix”.  I don’t know how he got everyone on this track, but I’m impressed.  I’m liking the Extinction Level Event Busta that seems to be making a comeback.  If all the names on this track alone don’t make you listen to this track there is something wrong with you.

 

Finally I wanted to let you guys know that I’m officially allowing unsolicited music to be in the featured audio section.  The internet is really leveling the playing field, and I would love to give some of you un-known guys as much shine as I can.  You can email mp3’s of your music to featuredaudio@crackspace.net.  I ask that you put the name of the track, and the name of the artist(s) in the title of the email.  You could also put a biography or any additional information about the track in the body of the email.  I only ask that you send just one track, and please only send me good stuff.  I don’t want to search for diamonds in the rough, I only want diamonds.  I’m looking forward to hearing what you guys got.

What it do people?  We got some of that fish scale today so let’s get into it.  First off we got Common ft Pharrell with “Universal Mind Control”.  This is a DJ version of the song, but the tags aren’t too obnoxious.  This has a real late 80’s vibe to it, and I’m diggin it.  This track just made my head start noddin which tends to be a clear indicator that it is dose worthy.  Check it out.

 

Then we got Plies ft Jamie Foxx & The Dream with “Please Excuse My Hands”.  To be honest, I kind of like Plies.  His first album got hated on, but it kind of had a Juvenile 400 Degreez type griminess that I was feeling.  Of course now he’s just trying to go with all these soft love type jams to sell records.  Most people got into Plies when they heard “Shawty”, but I got into Plies when I heard “Got Em Hatin”.  Anyway this song is chock full of inappropriate sexual innuendo’s, so I thought it was great.

 

Up next we got The Fixxers with “Worldwide AM”.  I hadn’t heard anything from these dudes since they dropped the banger “Can U Werk Wit Dat”, so I was excited to hear something new.  This track is obviously not as hot as “Can U Werk Wit Dat”, but it has some flavor to it.  For those who don’t know The Fixxers is a group consisting of west coast veterans DJ Quick & AMG.

 

Finally we got my boys the Clipse ft Re-Up Gang with “9mm”.  I’ve said before I think The Clipse are the truth, and unless something drastic happens that will never change.  They simply are “The kings of cocaine rap”.  This track is just a gritty street track, and if you’re a Clipse fan it requires a listen.  Be sure to check out all the other tracks that came out today in the audio section.

What’s good people?  You know the deal so let’s do it.  First off we got Saigon ft Red 5ive with “Believe It”.  I’m a huge fan of Saigon.  In an environment where a lot of these new rappers are complete garbage, Sai is one of the few guys who can get me a little excited about the future of hip-hop.  He actually just got released from his deal with Atlantic, with the masters to The Greatest Story Never Told so hopefully that album will finally drop.  I personally can’t wait to get my hands on it.

 

Then we got my boy Bun B ft Bulletproof, Chino XL, & Killer Mike with “Some Ho’s”.  This track isn’t on Trill II, so it must be coming out on a mixtape of some sort.  He’s got some solid underground dudes on the thing with the likes of Chino Xl and Killer Mike, however I’ve never heard of this Bulletproof dude, but apparently he’s from Shreveport, LA.  It’s a good track and worth a listen.

 

Up next we got the internet phenomenon Crooked I ft Akon with “Dream Big”.  For those who don’t know Crooked did this thing where he would release a track every week, in a series called “Hip-Hop Weekly”.  He did it for a year so there ended up being 52 tracks in the series.  I thought it was a really interesting and successful way to promote himself, because now the dude is blowing up.  I think the dude is ok, but he has definitely created a significant fan base for himself.  The track is hot though so check it out.

 

Finally we got Mickey Factz with “Good Money”.  The track is just about money, and Mickey throws in some government conspiracy theories in there as well for shits and giggles.  I don’t have any other cool info on Mickey, besides this track so give it a listen.  Be sure to check out the audio section for the other tracks that came out today.

What’s poppin people? I’m running out of creative ways to introduce this article so let’s just do it. First off we got the Chopper City Boyz ft B.G. with “Leaning”. It’s just a bangin southern street track. I’ve always dug B.G.’s super grimy delivery, and his swagger in general. He just does him and that’s all he really worries about, and I have to respect his gangster.
 
Then we got Nas with “N.I.G.G.E.R. (The Slave And The Master)”. If you haven’t heard Nas’s  album was slated to be titled Nigger, but they made a last minute decision to change it. I think it pretty much came down to an image thing, and Def Jam wouldn’t let it happen. I understand the point Nas is trying to make, but corporate America has once again flexed its muscle. The track is typical Nas, so if you’re a fan you should definitely give it a listen.
 
Up next we got “My Thoughts” which was produced by DJ Premier and has Bumpy Knuckles spittin on the thing. Bumpy is from New York and has been in the underground scene since 89’. I’m definitely a DJ Premier fan, and in many ways he defines what gritty New York hip-hop is. They just don’t really make music like this anymore, and it pisses me off. Not very familiar with Bumpy, but I doubt Premier would mess with the dude if he was garbage. He definitely gets the job done on this track.
 
Finally we got Little Brother with 9th Wonder on “Black Light Special”. I like Little Brother, however I would describe myself as a casual fan. If I remember correctly their first album was sick because it was all 9th Wonder and then their second album was kind of whack because there was little to no Wonder on it. Does that sound right? Well they linked up again so give it a listen. As always preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s up People?  Monday’s are always pretty good so let’s get into the damn music.  First off we got Jean Grae ft Busta Rhymes with “Love Thirst”.  For the most part I don’t really do female rappers, however I can fuck with Jean.  She always keeps it real without sacrificing her integrity.  This track just makes me wanna sit back, spark a dutch, and chill.   Busta also throws a pretty good verse on the thing so I’d give it a listen.  I think this track is off Jean’s album Jeanius so be on the look for that.

 

Next up we got David Banner with “Hello”.  They don’t list Jeezy as being on the track, but he is being sampled on the hook, and it’s my favorite part of the whole track.  I’m not completely familiar with all the stuff Banner has done, but from what I have heard the dude is pretty solid.  I know he also does a lot of production work, so he could very well be responsible for some tracks I love but I just don’t know he produced them.  I know the guy always passionately stands up for what he believes in, which is something I definitely respect.  A lot of people in the game talk about improving their communities; however Banner actually does something about it.

 

Then we got Lloyd Banks with “Top 5”.  Whenever G-Unit gets involved there is always gunna be tons of haters, and an equal amount of lovers.  This track is just a hard mixtape track that you would pretty much expect from Banks.  I find the dude to be completely average.  Check it out and judge for yourself.

 

Finally we got Grafh ft Prinz with “Like Ohh”.  This guy Grafh is from Queens and is just doing his thing independently.  I’ve heard a bunch of tracks from him before, and it’s always been pretty good for a dude who has no label backing.  I really like the hook on this track, and I like to give some little guys some shine.  As always be sure to preview all the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s poppin people?  I’m in a little bit of a rush so let’s jump right into it.  First off we got the chef himself Raekwon with Ghostface Killah a.k.a Tony Starks with “Necro”.  This is supposedly off Rae’s Only Built For Cuban Links 2, so be on the lookout for that.  All I know is that Ghost’s verse is extra vile and disgusting, so I obviously though it was awesome.  You should really give this one a listen if you love grimy-ass New York hip-hop.

 

Next up we got Sandman who is part of the Re-Up Gang.  Re-Up Gang is Clipse’s group, that they are a part of, for those of you who have been living under a rock.  It’s interesting just to listen to the dude hans solo on the track but he’s got some spit in him.  Would Clipse really fuck with him if he didn’t? 

 

Finally we got Charles Hamilton & Corey Gunz with “Neh, Neh , Neh”.  Apparently this Charles Hamilton dude is out of Harlem and he is being hyped as the next big thing.  If I remember correctly he is signed to Interscope.  Charles and Corey are just going “bar for bar like twix”.  I like the way they go back and forth on this one.  With lines like “I left your girls face messy with muc, spell it backwards”, you gotta check this one out.  As always preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy.

What’s good people?  I’m pretty happy with the stuff that came out today so let’s get into the music.  First off we got Idle Warship ft Chester French with “Fall Back”.  Idle Warship is a group consisting of Talib Kweli and Res.  Chester French is a pop/jazz group from Boston that is signed over at Star Trek/Interscope.   This song is apparently aimed at Hilary Clinton, which makes sense if you listen to the lyrics.  However, I’m not linking this up for its political context, but because I think the song is mad funky.  I would definitely give it a listen if I were you.

 

Next up we got Bun B with Rick Ross, David Banner, 8Ball & MJG with “You’re Everything”.  I’m a fan of everybody on the track, so I was expecting it to be good and the song exceeded my expectations. I like how the lyrics on the track tend to be pretty aggressive, but then the hook has this R&B vibe to it.  It’s different, but I always expect Bun to get creative with his music, and as usual he doesn’t disappoint. 

 

Then we got some old heads dropping some new stuff.  It’s KRS-One ft MC Lyte with “Love”.  I’m not gunna try and front like I’m a huge KRS fan, because I’m not but whenever I see the guy interviewed he’s extremely well spoken and articulates whatever point he is trying to get across very successfully.  Plus I’ve heard from some people that know the guy that he is a really good dude.  It’s not like I don’t like his music, I just never really got into it.  This song is hot though and you should give it a listen.

 

Finally, I’m filling my R&B quota with this Ashanti track “Body On Me” featuring Akon and Nelly.  I mean it’s just that standard track a 16 year old would toss on while he tries to convince his girlfriend to have sex with him.  I never thought I would put a song with Nelly on it up here, considering I have a personal vendetta against the dude.  I don’t even really have a good reason to not like him, all I know is I wanna smack that stupid band-aid off his face.  The other winner on this track, Akon, recently got called out for completely lying about his criminal past.  What an asshole, there are people who are actually serving hard time and Akon is lying about even doing time.  After all that hating, I still find the song to be pretty good.  Good luck to all the 16 year olds whose girlfriends are coming over later, and be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s poppin?  I had a pretty good weekend, and hope you did as well.  Monday’s tend to be pretty good so let’s jump on into it.  We got T.I. with “You Ain’t Ready” off the Empire’s Southern Slang Volume 10 mixtape.  I think Tip might be going at Shawty Lo on this track although I don’t really care.  This track is just really hard, and I was worried my boy Tip might be getting soft on me after all his legal troubles.  Although he has said that Paper Trail, his up-coming album, is going to be a little bit more toned down.  Sounds a little lame to me, but I’ll reserve my judgment until I hear the thing. 

 

Next up we got N.E.R.D ft CRS & Pusha T with “Everybody Nose Remix”.  CRS stands for Child Rebel Soldiers, and is the super-group consisting of Pharrell, Kanye West, and Lupe Fiasco.  The first thing you hear is Kanye saying “Hey do you have any black inside you?  Would you like some?”  Since I have the maturity of an 8 year old I obviously found this to be hilarious.  You would think that on a song about cocaine, Pusha T would have the sickest verse, but I’m gunna go with Pharrell on this one.  Just give it a listen, and you can make that decision for yourself. 

 

Then we got Styles of Beyond ft RZA with “Don’t Feel Bad”.  I don’t know anything about Styles of Beyond, but after some myspace creepin I figured out that they are from Reseda, California and are signed to Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros.  I don’t have anything to say about this track besides it’s good, and the sample is pretty hot. 

 

Finally, we have Duffy ft The Game on the remix of “Mercy”.  This Duffy broad is out of the UK, and kind of sounds like an Amy Winehouse rip-off to me.  Regardless this track is on some serious 1950’s shit and I like it.  It’s the type of song that I wouldn’t admit to liking to my friends, but I’m definitely jamming out to it while I’m at the crib.  Game’s verses are average, but the song is worth a listen.  As always preview the tracks in the audio section, and enjoy!

What’s up people?  Usually Friday’s are really slow, but there was actually some good shit hitting the web today which makes my job a lot easier.  You know the routine so let’s get into it.  First up we got Spec Boogie from Brooklyn with “True Romance”.  I usually don’t like to throw up songs with jacked beats, but this track is pretty hot.  Plus he took a Robin Thicke track and put some gangster in it which can never hurt.  I think that’s the main reason I like it, Spec took the beat in a completely different direction then it was originally intended. 

 

Next up we got Kidz In The Hall ft Estelle with “Love Hangover”.  I’ve said in previous posts that I think Kidz are a really creative and different group.  The song just seems a little unique  and almost Kanye-like.  Plus I really like Estelle, even if it knocks my masculinity down a couple notches.  I heard somewhere that her label wanted her to get her teeth fixed and grow her hair out and she told them to fuck off.  If that’s true you gotta respect that she stayed true to who she was, and didn’t let the appearance bullshit get in the way of making music.  So give it a listen and see what you think.  This is off their The In Crowd album so go cop that.

 

Then we got the boy Billy Danze from M.O.P ft Preacher with “Ima Kill Ya”.  M.O.P is obviously classic so I have to show some love.  I don’t have to much to say about this track besides I like it.  Doesn’t it seem like they just don’t make songs like this anymore?  It’s just hardcore and unforgiving.  It’s on some 1998 shit, which is in my opinion the glory days of hip-hop.

 

Finally we got a track that is supposedly on Dr. Dre’s still unreleased and extremely hyped Detox.  The dude that is rapping on the track now is named Prophet, but if you pay attention to the lyrics it is clearly written for Dre.  It’s no secret that Dre doesn’t actually write his rhymes, so this comes as no surprise.  The track is pretty good, although I think it will be better with Dre’s vocals.  Dre doesn’t play when it comes to keeping his tracks under lock and key so this is probably as close were gunna get to hearing tracks until about a month or two before the album drops.  Then again the Doc is such a perfectionist who knows if this track will even make the cut for Detox.  Be sure to preview the songs in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s up people.  Like Ice Cube said “Today was a good day”.  A lot of songs hit the web so let’s do what must be done.  If you have been paying any attention to previous posts you know I’m a big fan of Hot Dollar, as well as any song that is completely misogynistic and sexually explicit.   So imagine my delight to stumble across a track by Hot Dollar titled “I Fuck Yo Girl”.  With lines like Your pussy so wet, take your panties off/ So I can run deep like Randy Moss I knew I had a winner.  The title alone should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.

 

Up next we have a song that challenges the claim that lyricism is dead.  It’s called “Jumanji” by Mickey Factz ft Nakim, Nymesys, Charlie Clips, Smoke DZA, and Curtains.  A lot of these dudes are relatively unknown, and I’m to lazy to try and figure out the deal with everyone featured on the track.  I just like how there isn’t a hook, just a bunch of dudes spittin.  Plus I think “Jumanji” is a creative title. 

 

The third song of the day is Playaz Circle with “Look What I Got”.  To be honest I never really gave Playaz Circle a chance.  I loved the “Duffle Bag Boy” track, but assumed they just lucked out with a fire Weezy hook.  A month ago I actually listened to some of the album and it was surprisingly good.  These guys aren’t ever going to be on any g.o.a.t. lists, but they get the job done.  I guess my point is it’s worth listening to the track and giving these dudes a chance.

 

Then we got Young Buck with “I’m Out Here”.  In case you haven’t heard Young Buck is no longer in G-Unit, but is still signed to G-Unit records.  Honestly I’m tired of all the G-Unit bullshit.  The second I saw a video of 50 Cent with Justin Timberlake in London of all places I had to give up on the guy.  His first album will always be a classic, but now it seems like his core demographic is 16 year old white suburban girls.  Then again if I had 350 million dollars I would do whatever the fuck I pleased.  Wait, isn’t this supposed to be about Young Buck?  Ya, Buck took a long enough break from blowin coke to make this track, and it’s worth a listen.

 

Finally we got AR Writer, I mean JR Writer with “Do Dat”.  I’ve always dug his fast paced witty one-liners.  I think this is off of the Politics & Bullshit mixtape that comes out in early June.  I’ve always been a big Dipset fan, and it’s too bad Cam and Jim can’t settle their ownership issues, and give us some of that crack music.  As always preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s good people?  It’s hump day so let see if I can’t give you some music to get you through the week.  First up we got Styles P with “Make Em Move Back”.  I couldn’t figure out if this is off a specific Mixtape or album, or maybe Styles is just throwing this out so you don’t forget about him.  It’s just a good street track.  I’ve always thought Styles was pretty solid.  The thing that’s weird about him is that in my opinion he just gets better as his career advances, where as most rappers just get worse as their career’s progress.  All I know is that his last album Super Gangster was hot.

 

Up next we got the Ivy league educated Kidz In The Hall featuring Sean Price & Buckshot.  I like the movement Kidz In The Hall is rolling with so I’m more then happy to promote these guys.  They just know how to spit which is all that really matters to me.  I have still yet to hear a track from these guys where my initial reaction was, that’s whack.  There just innovative people that make good music.  Plus they seem to have a good sense of humor judging by videos like this.  The suits they rock in video are classic.

 

Then we got Flipmode in the house with Show Money ft Busta Rhymes & Reek Da Villian.  I don’t even know what the deal is with Flipmode any more.  First there was no more Flipmode, but apparently there back with some new heads.  This kid Reek is pretty nice so I’m gunna stay on the lookout for more from him.  I really like the intro and the hook on this track.  It’s a good song and worth a listen.

 

Finally we have Takia Miguel on “Ghetto Girl”.  I had to creep on Myspace to even figure out who she was.  The Harlem native has a Mixtape out right now called Classically Trained and it’s mixed by Mick Boogie.  I just really dig the sample on this track, I don’t know where it’s from but it’s sick.  She seems mediocre lyrically, but I’m not completely going to judge her after listening to just one song.  Plus, doesn’t is seem like they need to increase the volume on the acapella?  Mick Boogie needs to step up his mix game.  As always preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

Well here we go.  Another day another Dose.  You know the deal so let’s do what we do best and get into the music.  First off we got the fresh out of the box Foxy with AZ and they’re keeping it “Too Real”.  I’m sorry to the ladies out there, but for the most part I just don’t do female rappers.  I can sit through a Jean Grae album but that’s about it.  But you gotta give credit where credit’s due and this track goes hard.

Next up we got Bun B and Weezy on the track.  Based on those two names alone I had to toss this up.  The track is pretty solid and I like the beat.  It’s been said before that I think Bun B is the truth, and I don’t think that stance is ever going to change.  As far as Weezy goes, there is no other rapper out as entertaining.  That being said I understand the Weezy haters, I can see how you can think he is terrible, I’m just not one of those people.  He just sits around all day smoking weed, drinking syrup, making money, and saying whatever the fuck comes to his mind.  I can’t knock his style.

 Then we got Alfamega from that Pimp Squad Clique and Busta Rhymes on “Head Banger”.  The only other song I can even remember hearing from Alfamega was that “$500 Bottles” joint that was alright.  The most notable thing about this track is Busta bringing that Extinction Level Event  swagger to that track.  You know that old Busta that made you want to jump around the room and break shit.  I miss that dude and hope to see more of him.

 

Now I have to fill my R&B quota so up next we got Usher ft Pharell with “Flash”.  I don’t really like Usher, and I don’t care if you have a problem with that.  I’m only co-signing this track because I do really like the beat, and everyman has to have a little bit of R&B laying around for that female company that rolls through.

 

Finally we got Joe Budden with “Things You Do”.  I feel like I’m going soft with this track coming right after that Usher joint.  This track is not the first to use this formula.  You know that he’s made mistakes, there were a couple other women, all sorts of drama, but ultimately he loves you formula.  I have to say Tip is the master of this style song, sorry Budden.  So the track isn’t getting any unique points but it’s worth checking out.  On a complete side note I saw this video on smack and thought I’d link it up.  Budden just talks about all his “beefs”, and I like how he handles the bait to make it all bigger then it really is.  I hate all the whack beefs in the industry these days.  Stop bitching about each other, and make good music.  I don’t care how tough you are, I just care if you make my head nod when your track comes on.  As always be sure to preview the tracks in audio section and enjoy!

What’s up to all my Dosers out there. I hope you all had a good weekend, I know I did. We got a pretty serious line up for you guys today so let’s jump into it. First of we got Jeezy and Yeezy with “Put On”. The thing that really stands out on this track is Kanye rocking the vocoder. Now that everyone is rocking this thing on their tracks is there really a need for T-Pain? Either way whatever Kanye is doing on this track I dig it.
 
Next up we got Swizz Beatz with “Where Da Cash At”. I think we can all agree Swizz isn’t the world’s best rapper, and loves to just repeat the hook over and over on all his tracks. A lot of Swizz’s beats have too much stuff going on in them for me, but this one is relatively simple for Swizz, and I like it. Basically Swizz just wants us to know how much more money he has then us, a point duly noted.
 
Then we got this dude Problem from Compton and what appears to be half the west coast on his remix of “I’m Toe Up”. It’s just a party record about getting a little to drunk, which pretty much describes my life. All I know is the synth in the beat reminds me of Cassie’s “Me & U” and Mims “This is Why I’m Hot”, both smash hits so that’s a good look. 
 
The last song of the day is Cadillac Tah ft Gucci Mane with “Feelin That”. Cadillac Tah is from Queens and is signed over at Murder Inc. I just love the fact that a New York artist hit up the boy Gucci Gucc for a track. All the New Yorkers in the office make fun of me for loving Gucci Mane. The dude is so bad that he’s good (I call it Mike Jones Syndrome). People hate on him because of the simplicity of his rhymes, but I think that’s what makes him great. I also like how both of these artists shamelessly promote large corporations in their names. As always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section.
 
Finally I got an entire Mixtape for you guys to check out. It’s Hot Dollar’s 100 Laws of Power 2.0 and it’s a version without obnoxious tags or DJ’s yelling about how cool they are. I kind of stumbled upon it this weekend and could not stop listening to it. The funny thing is that this Mixtape is better then a lot of albums out these days, plus its pretty light on jacked beats. Three notable tracks are “Upside Down”, “Ball Hard”, and “Like A Thug Do”. I’m having a little trouble figuring out if Hot Dollar is legitimately a star, or he just happens to cater to my personal taste. I think you should just download the thing and figure out for yourself. Enjoy!

It’s Friday so I know all you hip-hop heads are looking forward to another weekend of chillen.  Friday’s are usually slow, but today it was absolutely dead.  There wasn’t much out there so please excuse the usual lack of quality and quantity.  First off we got Slick Pulla who is Jeezy’s boy from his Corporate Thugs imprint.  He does what you would expect him to do spitting about drugs, money, girls, and poppin bottles.  It’s that same old story that never seems to get old for people like me.

 

 

Next up we got Rick Ross with “Pedal 2 The Floor” and I believe its off The Victory Lap Mixtape hosted by DJ Kronik  which also features Papa Smurf and Triple C’s.  I’ve always had mixed feelings on Ross.  He always drops hot singles, but his albums aren’t that impressive.  The thing I do really like about the dude is his swagger.  He rocks this huge chain of his own face which I find to be pretty hilarious and makes videos like this.

 

Finally we got Akrobatik with “Soul Glo”.  Akrobatik has been in the Boston hip-hop scene for what seems like forever.  The track is pretty solid, and I like the old school reggae sample they tossed in there.  Did I mention today was slow?  As always check out the tracks in the audio section for a preview and enjoy!

What’s good people?  We got a pretty solid Dose to make up for yesterday so let’s jump into it.  First off we have one of the best with Jadakiss’s “From Now Till Then”.  I don’t really like the beat at all but since Jada is a lyrical mastermind he makes the song worth listening to.  This is what distinguishes Jada from the rest of the pack, most rappers are only hot because of the beats they spit on, where as Jada makes beats hot just by how he brings it when he spits. 


Then we got Serius Jones who is a dude out of Jersey signed to DTP/Def Jam.  Serius is pretty good, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sit on DTP without any releases until he asks to be released.  I just don’t see a major release from this dude in today’s music climate.  Just check out the track and judge for yourself. 



Up next is a track from The Roots that wasn’t released on Rising Down which dropped on Tuesday.  I like it and its pretty much what you would expect from the Illadelph  crew.  I still haven’t gotten a chance to sit down and listen to the album all the way through so I can’t say how I feel about it yet.  Regardless this track isn’t on the album, but is definitely worth a listen. 



Then we got Reks out of L-Town a city right outside of Boston.  I’m also from a town right outside of Boston so you know I got to show some love, but besides the hometown connection I like the track.  It’s called “Stereo Type” and he basically talks about the stereotypes of various races and how we need to overcome them.  It’s kind of funny while attempting to make a point which I think is an effective way of making changes. 


Finally we got Southeast Slim with “Cherry On Top”.  The dude is out of DC (Is that the southeast?  Might have to call him Mid-Atlantic Slim)  and he is just doing his thing independently.  This track is just filled with inappropriate sexual situations/innuendos so I obviously loved it.  Plus the hook is pretty catchy, so I’d definitely give it a listen.  As always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

What’s good people?  Most of the stuff that came out today was pretty boring so The Dose will be brief.  First off we got Hunt with “Sunshine”, and I know absolutely nothing about this guy, except he is from Tampa, Florida and I even had to scope his myspace to figure that much out.  I like the sunshine sample and the lyrics are good enough for me to toss a link up.  Next we got Mickey Factz, with his boy from Canada Drake, and Travis from Gym Class Heroes.  I have mixed feeling on Mickey, sometimes the dude really shines, but I get the vibe from the dude he thinks he’s a lot cooler then he really is.  I just like the part where Travis is rapping about the drugs he likes.  I think I read somewhere that he’s pretty open with the fact he’s a rampant drug addict.  Finally we got this kid Boo with “Head Like Kush, Pussy Like Crack”.  When I saw the title I was immediately intrigued, since I love completely disgusting and inappropriate rap music.  With lines such as, I call her aquafina/ she got that wet wet /play wit it with my fingers /then I let her taste that, I couldn’t help but like the song even if he completely bit the aquafina line from Jeezy’s “Tear It Up”.  I couldn’t really find out anything about the dude Boo for sure but he might be out of Jackson, Mississippi if he is who I think he is.  I know it was pretty brief today, but I don’t want to throw anything to whack up just to have something up.  As always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy! 

“Sunshine”- Hunt

“Overdose On Life”- Mickey Factz, Drake, & Travis from Gym Class Heroes

“Head Like Kush, Pussy Like Crack”- Boo

What’s good people?  Today’s Daily Dose is pretty heavy on the bigger names, so lets jump into some good music.  To start off we got Hot Dollar and Jay Rock.  Hot Dollar is on So So Def and I think this dude could end up doing big things.  He’s dropped a couple singles here and there, and the “Get Naked” track that dropped a couple months ago is still on heavy rotation on my I-Pod.    Then we got some Old School heads dropping some new material, with Craig G & Marly Marl’s “Made The Change”.  I’m embarrassed to say I wasn’t even born when they started their careers and never really got into their stuff, but I dig this track.  They’re dropping an album on June 17th called Operation Take Back Hip-Hop so cop that if you want to support the guys who helped build the music we’ve all come to love.  The next track is off of the Grand Theft Auto soundtrack.  It’s Mobb Deep with “Dirty New Yorker”.  I don’t really have any thing interesting to say about this track, it’s typical Mobb Deep with a grimy beat and grimy lyrics.  Up next is my boy Bun-B.  To be honest my favorite part about this song is the featured artists name, Sugar Tongue Slim.  That name is classic, especially considering how uncreative most rappers names are these days.  The track is pretty solid and like I said earlier Bun B is the boy so I had to throw this up.  Finally we got T.I. with “No Matter What”, and I’m feeling the track.  I’m a huge T.I. fan, and I realistically believe that ten years from now people are going to consider him one of the best.  His ability to make great albums definitely distinguishes him from the competition.  What I mean by that is he always puts out albums that you can listen to all the way through without wanting to skip any songs.  Can you name more then 5 other rappers out right now that can do that?  I guess what I’m trying to say is I co-sign the dude, except when he is being a complete idiot and trying to buy automatic weapons with silencers in a parking lot.  Seriously Tip, that’s a job for the weed carrier.  As always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

“Ball Hard”- Hot Dollar ft Jay Rock

“Made The Change”- Craig G & Marly Marl

“Dirty New Yorker”- Mobb Deep

“The South”- Bun B ft Sugar Tongue Slim

“No Matter What”- T.I.

What’s good people?  Got a bunch of new tracks for you so let’s jump right into it.   First off we got Curren$y with “This Way Again”.  I’ve been a fan of the dude since I copped Weezy’s The Dedication 2 and he tore it up on a couple tracks.  He has since jumped ship from the Young Money imprint and is doing his thing on an independent level and hopefully things pop off for him.  Next up we got CNN ft The Clipse.  I’m pretty sure CNN just signed a new deal so be on the lookout for a new album from them, but I’m a huge Clipse fan so that’s the main reason I’m throwing this up.  Then we got Cashis who is Eminem’s boy on Shady Records for those who don’t know.  I haven’t listened to any of his mixtapes, and he hasn’t dropped a commercial release, but the four or five tracks I’ve heard from him have all been pretty dope.  This next track I have mixed feelings on, It’s got LL Cool J, Jim Jones, Method Man, KRS-One, & Lil Kim, so it should be dope right?  Wrong, to be honest it all sounds pretty mediocre, plus I’ve always had a problem with LL but this is not the venue to voice my opinions on that.  After all that being said I’m gunna throw the track up anyways because all those names can’t be ignored.   Finally we got Cassidy with “All In The Hood”, and it’s just the typical street song you would expect from Cassidy.  If you like Cassidy, you’ll like this track, and if you don’t like Cassidy this track probably won’t be the one to change your opinion.  As always be sure to preview these joints in the audio section and enjoy!

“This Way Again”- Curren$y

“My Hood”- CNN ft Clipse

“Why Not”- Cashis

“The 5 Boroughs Is Back”- LL Cool J ft Jim Jones, Method Man, KRS-One, & Lil Kim

“All In The Hood”- Cassidy

What’s good people?  It’s Friday so if you’re not in a good mood there’s something wrong with you.  Let’s jump into it.  First we got Fokis and Joell Ortiz with “Pandemonium”, which is a great name for a track.  All I know is that Fokis is from the lower east side of Manhattan, and that’s where I live so I got to show him some love.  Next we got the kid Nino Bless.  I don’t know much about this dude except he’s from Brooklyn and the more I hear from him the more I like him.  He just seems to have some spit in him and goes hard without any gimmicks.  Then we got Pacific Division with “Taste”.  This is a group from LA that has been gaining some serious momentum and buzz on the internet.  They kind of have this lets get money, get girls, and smoke weed attitude without trying to be gangster, and I’m feelin it.  It’s just fun music.  Finally we got The Roots and Common.  Do I really need to say anything else?  I think not.  As always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section and enjoy!

“Pandemonium”- Fokis ft Joell Ortiz

“Da Livest”- Nino Bless

“Taste”- Pacific Division

“The Show”- The Roots ft Common

What’s good people?   I’m pretty excited about this daily dose because the music is pretty tight, so let’s get into it.  First we got a bonus track off of Prodigy’s new album H.N.I.C. 2.  Even though P says a lot of retarded stuff via his blog, I’m still a fan and this track goes hard.  Next up is the boy Wale, and it’s kind of funny since in my last post I was talking about how unimpressive he was.  Then he went and dropped a track with a Seinfeld sample.  A Seinfeld sample?  That’s so not gangster it kind of makes it gangster by default, you know?  Then we got Lyfe Jennings and Wyclef with a track I’m really feeling right now, its got a reggae sound to it, and I really dig the hook.  To be honest I’m not that familiar with Lyfe, I know he’s been around a minute now, so like Clinton Sparks says its time to “Get Familiar”.  The track we got next is The Roots ft Saigon & Truck North “Criminal”.  As soon as I saw The Roots & Saigon I knew I was gunna like the track.  It’s got a pretty heavy rock feel to it, something you wouldn’t expect from Saigon, but regardless the track is hot.  Finally we got Swizz Beatz’s new artist Money with Weezy on the track.  To be perfectly honest my favorite part about the track is when Weezy says he has 448 grams of weed in the hook, which is just a really complicated way of saying a pound.  That’s what  Weezy does, he takes something simple and complicates it.  Well that’s what I got for you today, and as always be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section.  Enjoy!

 

“The Dough”- Prodigy

 “Perfect Plan”- Wale

 “If You Think You’ve Got It Bad”- Lyfe Jennings ft Wyclef Jean

“Criminal”- The Roots ft Saigon & Truck North

“Best Friend”- Money ft Lil Wayne

What’s Good People?  Let’s just get right into it today.  First off we got Ice Cube bringing the intelligent and aggressive rhymes he always brings.  I think this track is of his new album, Raw Footage, which hopefully won’t get as slept on as his last one.  Next we got my man Sha Stimuli from Brooklyn holding it down on this track.  I don’t really have any comments for this track besides I like it.  Then we have Skyzoo with Wale on “Lyrically Inclined”, I really like the name of the track, as well as the track itself.  There is all this buzz on this dude Wale who is over at Interscope, but to be honest I’m not seeing what distinguishes him from the rest of the pack.  Finally we got Buckshot & 9th Wonder with a track of their new album, The Formula, I’ve only heard a couple tracks of this album, but from what I’ve heard it’s pretty fire.  It just seems catchy and authentic without being really commercial.  I’m having trouble describing it, but I definitely recommend that true hip-hop heads scope it out.  As always be sure to preview the tracks on the audio section.  Enjoy!

“It Takes A Nation”- Ice Cube

“We Can Make It”- Sha Stimuli

“Lyrically Inclined”- Skyzoo ft Wale

“Whassup With U”- Buckshot & 9th Wonder ft. Keisha Shontelle

What’s Good People?  I had a lovely weekend and I hope you guys did as well.  Now that we’ve gotten the pleasantries out of the way lets keep it movin to the music.  I think all this hype & hooplah surrounding Nas’s next album is good for hip-hop.  It’s controversial, it brings a lot of strong arguments from both sides, and it’s got people talking about rap music again.  This is what hip-hop is supposed to be, young people expressing interesting and complicated new ideas about American culture.  I know nothing about these dudes, Stacks & Jah Cure, but I’m digging the wanna be reggae swagger they got on this track so I’m tossing it up.  Next we got The Bravehearts with Corey Gunz, and I’m tossing up this song for no other reason that they sampled probably the most famous English musical in history, and that’s why I love hip-hop because there is no music that can’t become hip-hop, even old school English music.  Finally we got Game ft Keyshia Cole with “Pain”, and while I only think this track is ok I’ll give Game the benefit of doubt and toss it up anyway.  As always be sure to preview these joints in the audio section.  Enjoy!

 

“Be A Nigger To”- Nas

 

“Flyin High”- Stacks & Jah Cure

 

“Pocket or Two”- Bravehearts ft D-Stress & Corey Gunz

What’s good people?  Everything is lovely since it’s Friday and I have a busy weekend of doing absolutely nothing.  Well let’s get down to business.  First of we got Scram Jones ft. Saigon, Nino Bless, and Crooked I all going real hard on this track and giving true hip-hop heads some hope that hip-hop is in fact still alive and kickin.  Next we got T.I. and Young Jeezy with  the “Hurt Remix” because you can never have to much T.I. and Jeezy.  Then we got Focus ft Stat Quo with “It’s Not So Hard”, on a side note will Stat’s album ever drop on Aftermath? Anyway this track is pretty sick, and I would definitely scope it if I was you.  Finally we got Keak Da Sneak ft Prodigy & The Alchemist.  To be perfectly honest I’m not a big Keak fan, but I think Alchemist does no wrong on the production side so overall I like the track.  Have a good weekend, and be sure to preview the tracks in the audio section.  Enjoy!

What’s good people, I’m sorry for the Daily Dose delay, but we are up and running again.  Let’s get right into it.  First of we got Skillz, one of the best rappers no one talks about, letting everyone know how sick he is.  Then we got Yo Gotti and Ricky Ross showing Miami some love with an interesting hook for Yo Gotti, but I’m digging it.  I’m throwing this Ya Boy track up just because it’s so hard in every aspect.  Then I got a little R&B/Reggae type jam for you with this new artist Jazmine Sullivan, it’s kind of a bold statement but she reminds me a little of Lauryn Hill.  Finally I got Shawty Redd and Snoop with the “Drifter Remix”.  Be sure to check out the audio section to preview the songs.  Enjoy!
