Coming off the heels of 2010’s terrific blend, Kush & Orange Juice, a lot was riding on Wiz Khalifa’s major label debut, Rolling Papers. Although the disc spawned a few chart toppers (“Black & Yellow,” “Roll Up”), Wiz abandoned his signature haze for commercial pastures (“Cameras). All isn’t lost though. He shows signs of life on “Star Of The Show” and “On My Level”, but overall, the album is hit or miss. The Taylor Gang shall rise again.
During a stop at the border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, canines detected a prescription bottle of blunts on Snoop’s tour bus. Although Snoop has a prescription in California, he was given a citation for the half-ounce of weed and released. If convicted, the rapper could face 180 days in the slammer. tmz
They say patience is a virtue and I don’t know anyone who has more than Saigon who waited four years to release his debut album the way he intended. Sorry Atlantic, this is uncompromising boom bap rap with a message. Anchored by the amazing production of Just Blaze, GSNT is a conceptual album that is better served in one complete listen. Still there are plenty of standouts like the one-two punch of “Enemies” and “Friends”, the Marsha Ambrosius-aided “It’s Alright” […]
“You was made in Paris and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package/ Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/ We was afraid you disappeared but nah baby, you magic.” The Empire State Building lit the sky blue over the weekend in honor of the Giants win and coincidentally, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter. For the last nine months, Hov’s been tight-lipped about the pregnancy, but bears it all over Pharrell’s production. At the 3:20 mark, Hov […]
This arrived on the day Watch The Throne dropped and needless to say it made way less impact than Jay and ‘Ye. On paper, this should’ve worked. Gucci, fresh off his latest stint in the pokey, pairing up with his protege. But nah shortie this lacked pomp and and deserved to flop. Fresh off Flockaveli and murderous mixtape material, I expected more from Waka, who surprisingly coasts here as La Flare’s Robin. Ah well, his upcoming Triple F will probably […]

Somebody musta told Killer Mike he fell off and he needed that ’cause he came back like a man possessed on his potent Pl3dge. The soul sample stirring opener “So Glorious” sets the tone as he blazes through the tantalizing “That’s Life II” and the riveting “Ric Flair”. Woo! This ATLien can still snap. Whether dolo or with his hometown brethren, Grand Hustle boss, T.I. (“Ready Set Go”), Young Jeezy (“Go Out On The Town”) and Gucci Mane (“Animal”)—the satisfying […]
