’11 Disappointing Albums: #1 Lil Wayne Tha Carter IV

Oh sweet irony. The largest selling rap album of last year is also the most disappointing. While Carter 3 solidified Weezy’s position as an all-time rap great, its floundering follow-up is filled with hit-and-miss bars, poor production choices and a plethora of guests who outshine the Young Money boss on the album’s best moments. “She Will” is all Drizzy Drake in all his hookman glory. Rick Ross remakes his own song on “John”. And Tech 9ne and Nas steal the […]

’11 Underrated Albums: #1 Yelawolf Radioactive

Yelawolf signed at the right place (Shady Records), but his debut album Radioactive, fell at the wrong time. From the backwoods of Gadsden, Alabama, Yela’s All-American charm shines on (“Made In The U.S.A.” and “Let’s Roll”). He successfully goes against the grain with unlikely collabos (“Hard White”, “Throw It Up”) while challenging programming directors everywhere (“Radio”). And oh yeah, he makes songs for bitches too (“Good Girl” and “Hardest Love Song In The World”). Recognize game and pick up Radioactive […]

’11 Disappointing Albums: #2 Lupe Fiasco Lasers

It took a minute for Lupe’s Lasers to occupy stores. But to hear fans tell it, it wasn’t worth the wait. Unlike his previous efforts, Lupe ditched his lyrical wizardry for Top 40 appeal. Most of the backlash started from “The Show Goes On” and ended with the Trey Songz collaboration, “Out Of My Head”. But who are we kidding? Fans are fickle. So it’s hard to dismiss standouts like, “All Black Everything” and “Words I Never Said”. Lasers is […]

’11 Underrated Albums: #2 DJ Quik The Book Of David

DJ Quik is in the muthafuckin’ house. Unfortunately, only a few took notice with his latest CD, The Book Of David. Quik stayed true to the Left Coast and repped for the hometown on “So Compton”. He kept the party popping with (“Nobody” and “Boogie Till You Conk”) and then aired out personal grievances (“Ghetto Rendezvous”, “Killer Dope”). Needless to say, The Book Of David should’ve been a bestseller.
