When was the meeting when the hip-hop nation got together and decided that we wanted Nas to make an album with one of Bob Marley’s sons. I didn’t get the memo. What’s next? Cormega & The Melody Makers? Although many praised this album when it was released last May, ask yourself the last time you actually took the time to listen to this. No real replay value. This project still feels like a comfy blanket Mr. Jones hid under while […]
Surprised? Oh, quit your jibber jabber. Waka himself would probably admit that he’s no wizard of poetry. But for what he lacks in skill set, his debut Flockaveli makes up for in entertainment value. Produced majorly by Lex Luger, the project is buoyed by hypnotic drum and horn patterns. Ironically, the tracks are more effective individually than in their sequence, ie: the album’s big three:, “O Let’s Do It” , “Hard In The Paint” and “No Hands.” Really, it’s Waka’s […]
Although Kanye said “Watch The Throne coming in one week, nigga” on New Year’s, a lil’ birdie told Andrew over at FSD, that said project would be dropping on Tuesday, March 1st.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way man. After being jailed before the release of 2009′s stellar The State vs. Radric Davis, Gucci Mane was supposed to further ascend to the top of the Southern rap game after his release last summer. Instead, this past fall, we got this uneven album that fell way short of expectations. Swizz Beatz’s golden touch was missing on the album’s lead single “Gucci Time”. A joint so sucky that Schoolly D shoulda sued. Although […]
Jon Connor maintains his viral presense with a new freestyle. Listen carefully, this guy’s flow is psycho.
Mainodamus returns with new set of predictions for two thousand and eleven. Let’s see if they hold up, last year’s premonitions were a lil’ shaky.
Lloyd Banks proved that his eyes weren’t bigger than his stomach with last year’s sleeper, The Hunger For More 2. From the onset, the project curbs hip-hop fans appetites with aggressive production and sharp writing (“Take ‘Em To War,” “Home Sweet Home”). Banks continued this approach on tracks like his comeback hit, “Beamer, Benz Or Bentley”, and the star-studded “Start It Up”. Elsewhere, he caters to his female base without losing his edge (“I Don’t Deserve You” and “Any Girl”). […]
