The most critically-acclaimed consistent group in this business of rap did it again last year with their ninth album. You thought that becoming a late night talk show band would cause them to lose their edge or focus? Never that. In fact it went the opposite way. Brought them closer together as an even more sonically strong music machine and who knew lead voice Black Thought could sing? He shines on the titilating title track and proves his pen is […]
Maino makes it clear that if you got a hot beat, he’s coming after it. And to start things off, he commandeers Ace Hood’s newest street single . Respect the hustle—and the jux. nr
Hate her or love her, Ms. Minaj is on top. And no album has divided the hip-hop nation as much as her debut. I for one have grown to appreciate it. Although it falls short of the hype built from her scene-stealing cameos (“Monster” made me a believer), it’s an awkwardly sequenced but clever collection that combines moments of greasy street talk (the brutal “Roman’s Revenge” and the dastardly callous “I Did It On Em”) with an unabashed aim at […]

Whether or not Bun B’s third solo album, Trill.O.G. is a classic is debatable. But one thing most can agree on, is that after 20 years in the game, Pimp’s other half knows how to maintain his relevancy without comprising his legacy nor his sound. From the opening bell, Bun takes us to “Chuuch”. He creates beautiful bliss with Young Jeezy on “Just Like That” and handles his business twice with Drake on standout cuts, “Put It Down” and “It’s […]
[vodpod id=Video.5278502&w=425&h=350&fv=%26rel%3D0%26border%3D0%26] Walk on water like Moses? Uh, we’re going to have to check the good book on that one. Anyway, Snoop Dogg makes a splash with his new video “Wet”. Can’t believe Prince William’s actually going through with this.
On some Sade shit, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek reunited for their first album in 10 years and they did not disappoint. Underrated? Underappreciated? Slept-on? All the above. But most important is to classify Revolutions Per Minute with its rightful distinction as one of the best rap albums of the year. It’s an essential listen of a true master MC and brilliant beatmaker working together to craft substantial hip-hop songs. (R.I.P. Guru.) Whether on their own (the crafty “City Playgrounds”, the […]
