RR’s ’09 Best Singles: #1 Drake “Best I Ever Had”

Taking the crown as the best single of 2009, is Drake’s “Best I Ever Had.” Before becoming a radio staple and the root of his $2 million deal, the track appeared on his mixtape, So Far Gone. With wingman Boi-1da on the boards, Drizzy tapped into a forgotten fanbase: The ladies. In a charmful baritone, he warmed hearts with cozy lines like, “Sweat pants, hair tied/ Chillin’ with no make-up on/ That’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you […]

RR’s ’09 Worst Albums: #2 Bow Wow “New Jack City II”

Before the Birdman swooped in and saved him with a CM contract, Shad spent last spring reuniting with JD and droppin’ another brick. Why was Bow Wow sixth album such a flop? Well besides the TLC “Baby-Baby-Baby” bounce of the strong lead single “You Can Get It All” there’s nothing here memorable or bumpable.

RR’s ’09 Best Singles: #2 Jay-Z “D.O.A.”

RR’s ’09 Worst Albums: #3 Triple C’s “Custom Cars & Cycles”

Although Rick Ross managed to produce one of last year’s better albums, not much positive could be said for his Triple C’s crew’s debut. Take the creatively bankrupt “Throw It In The Sky” or the aftermarket dud “Finer Things” as prime examples. Later “Chick’n Talk’n” falls on deaf ears while guest Game fails to bring an edge to “Gangster Shit”. Ultimately though, the real problem is internal. Although there’s some sonically impressive production throughout, The Cartel fail miserably on making […]
