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 […]
Germany’s Bild.de reports that Ryan Leslie’s laptop has been recovered after it was stolen back in October. A man who’s going by the alias Bernd P. spotted the computer during a walk in Stommlerbusch, near Cologne, Germany and returned it police on November 27. So far, Bernd P.’s emails have not been returned nor has he received the $1 million reward. Time to pay up R.Les! navjosh
Jay-Z murdered T-Pain with “D.O.A.” but DJ Khaled brought him back to life. A master of thug motivation, the mouth of Miami radio roared with another assortment of hip-hop all-stars. Luda sounds happy to be recognized. Ross makes things official. And Snoop slips in like a suprise guest. Clearly though it’s the hook that provided this song with such a long shelf life. Damn, Khaled Khaled knows what he’s doin’. Another anthem. Get your damn hands up!
Admittedly I’m not a big N.E.R.D. supporter. I like my Pharrell peddling beats and hooks to great MCs and stayin’ on the sidelines. But with a somewhat open, slate-cleaning mind I copped the oft-delayed Nothing the day it dropped. And guess what? I didn’t like it. From the annoying chorus-laden opener “Party People”; to the Al Green on acid space ride “Hypnotize U”; to a slithery shit sandwich called “Help Me”, the album clearly stumbles badly out the gate. To […]
I’ve already gone on the record a coupla times about how much I dug Kanye’s comeback song from the moment the joint accidentally leaked. Oops! Fuck the radio, “Power” was the record Donda’s baby boy had to deliver. A snarling salute to one’s self—it’s swagger on a hundred thousand somethin’ somethin’. Almost serving as its own EP, it set the stage nicely for the G.O.O.D. Friday campaign, which all culminated with the release of MBDTF. Whether one song or with […]
[vodpod id=Video.5273009&w=425&h=350&fv=] Ever wonder what it’s like to live a day in the life of the Dirty Money crew? WSHH was nice enough to give us a look inside of what the crew goes through which include promo runs, performances and studio sessions. Last Train To Paris is in stores now. hhnm
Whether you were on two heels or four wheels, Lloyd Banks had a tune for you to ride to. With Juelz Santana riding shotgun, Banks’ “Beamer , Benz Or Bentley,” not only spawned a thousand remixes but a gold plaque as well. While xylophones tip toe between the tandem, Santana drives it home with a flawless verse. (“I got a girl named cigar, call her that because she Cuban/ Got a black chick that be boostin’/Got a white girl that […]
