Joe Budden “Pump It Up” (Demo Snippet)

Justin is still cleaning out his Baseline Studios and look what he came across. An early take of Mouse’s big breakthrough hit. Of course, he isn’t given us the whole thing. Don’t you kids know by now, Mr. Smith is the Snippet King. SMH. 2DB Sidebar: Warning! Turn your volume down if you wanna hear all about why Jump Off dumped his post-Tahiry jump off. Riveting stuff.

RR’s ’09 Worst Singles: #1 Dirty Money “Angels”

This sounds like a blend from hell. Sorry, but some things should be left alone. If rehashing Biggie vocals and Jay-Z’s “Where I’m From” weren’t bad enough, Puff took it a step further by coating it with an Auto-Tune-like vocal effect. Now to make matters worse, Ricky hopped on the remix. My heart can’t take no moooreeee. This song won’t go away! Before: RR’s 09 Worst Singles #2 Ron Browz “Jumping Out The Window”

RR’s ’09 Best Albums: #1 Jay-Z “Blueprint 3”

It’s a no brainer. Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 takes the gold for best album of 2009. Let’s talk facts: Last summer, Hov’s “D.O.A.” eradicated Auto-Tune while “Empire State of Mind” rejuvenated everyone’s spirits in the fall. Meanwhile, Kid Cudi’s melodies buoyed “Already Home” and “A Star Is Born” introduced us to one of the game’s promising upstarts.

RR’s ’09 Worst Singles: #2 Ron Browz “Jumping Out The Window”

One of hip-hop’s prominent producers Ron “Pop Champagne” Browz tried his hand at rap early last year and spawned his second regional hit, “Jumping Out The Window”. In all its awful Auto-Tune glory, NY radio ate it up. Personally, it made me throw up. From the window to wall, thank God for Ron’s timely fall. Universal failure.
