On paper, it seemed like a good idea. Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon: Three of the Wu-Tang’s most celebrated artists all on one album. Unfortunately, some things are better left alone. Such is the case with the Wu-Massacre. Out the gate, flaws are evident. Take “Criminology 2.5”. A song inspired by Rae’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx that doesn’t even feature The Chef. Elsewhere, dull guest features riddle “Smooth Sailing (Remix)”, “Gunshowers”, and “Youngstown Heist”. Not to mention, the […]
For pretty much all of his incredible career, Em’s first singles have been Slim Shady-fueled, celebrity-bashin’, tongue planted-firmly-in-cheek tunes that scream, “OK, Jimmy you want a radio record, here you fuckin’ go, buddy.” A lyrical master dumbin’ down for the dum dums. Thankfully, Marshall switched the style up on Recovery. Produced by one of Drake’s production partners-in-crime Boi-1da, Em’s “Not Afraid” is a stirring, here I stand declaration that’s painfully honest about his professional and personal problems of the past […]
They say don’t kick a kid rap star when he’s down but those folks actually never took the time to listen to Soulja Boy’s new album. If this was a say something nice challenge I would tell you it’s okay to turn up “Speakers Goin’ Hammer” and that something about the over-the-top “30 Thousand 100 Million” is appealing. But that’s where it stops! Sorry Fif, “Mean Mug” is ugly. “Blowing Me Kisses” is gross. “Hey Cutie” is crap. And I’m […]
The Conglomerate’s young gunna is back with a visual to the final track off his mixtape, The Gift. Oh did you lose focus during the holidays? Download the joint right here. You need it in your life!
You know what this is? A song that came out before last Labor Day that I still enjoy listening to today. It’s in constant rotation. Just ask your local radio PD. Truth be told, Team RR was late to jump on the Taylor Gang bus. Just ask Arthur Pitt. But now we’re here, my dear. And yes, the Kush man got the #1 mixtape and this big hit has him poised to be the next breakthrough star in Hip-Hop 2011. […]
There were no victors with Ludacris’ last album, Battle Of The Sexes. After scrapping the original concept with Shawnna, Luda reached out to other femcees to fill her Louboutins. Sadly, the results were less than memorable. Although the album struck gold, bronze medals go out to songs like the lead singles “How Low” and “My Chick Bad.” On the latter, Luda single handedly buries Big Sean’s patented Supa Dupa Flow with, “Couple girl friends and they all a little crazy […]
