Dope or Nope 1/28: The Return of Lil Jon

28 01 2009

Lil Jon feat. The Game and Ice Cube – Killers

I’m not going to front, I miss the old crunk days. Lil Jon had the club joints on lock and if you had some subs in your trunk, a Lil Jon album was a must. This time around, Lil Jon hooks up with The Game and Ice Cube to sound off on censorship in music. On a side note, what ever happened to Crunk Rock?

Im’a throw this in just for the hell of if it…
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Lol!

Dope or Nope 1/27: Unreleased Jay!

28 01 2009

Jay-z – Money Goes

Apparently this track wasn’t gangster enough for Jay’s last release American Gangster. I can see why it didn’t make the cut because it couldve potentially threw off the soulful vibe of the album. In other Jay news, the Blueprint III is still in the works.

Girls, Girls, Girls: Chick of the Week 1/26 – Daddy’s Girls

26 01 2009

This weeks CotW entry goes to Vanessa and Angie. These sisters don’t only look good, they act got a business state of mind. From their shoe line Pastries to their show to Vanessa’s acting career, these chick’s are on the right track to success. These ladies are young, sexy and single, and even made Kanye say “cuz’ when the Jesus pieces cant bring me peace/yo I need this at least, uh, one of Russell’s nieces”

One in particular who caught my eye was Vanessa. Both sisters are attractive, but Vanessa has more of what I look for in a woman. I love a chick with legs, lips, and breasts, but aside from all that she seems down to Earth and carries herself in a mature manner. Apparently I’m not the only one feelin’ her since she made Maxim’s Hot 100.

Takin’ Em Back – 1/23

23 01 2009

Ghostface Killah feat. Mary J. Blige – All That I Got Is You

Even though I didn’t become a GFK fan til his second album, I always thought this was a excellent track and it’s one of Ghost’s best to date. Ghostface does his descriptive storytelling as usual about his struggles coming up. The vivid lyrics Ghostface spits makes the audience feel his pain. To add to the soulful piano instrumental, the Wally Champ gets Mary J. on the hook making the track flawless.

What’s Beef: Joe Budden Vs. Saigon Continues…

22 01 2009

Saigon – Pushing Buddens

Earlier this week I posted a blog on hip hop’s latest beef consisting of Joe Budden and Just Blaze artist Saigon (click here to catch up on it). First Joey put out his track in response to Sai talkin’ reckless, then Saigon responded going hard on Joe causing Budden to fire back. The latest in the beef is Saigon’s “Pushing Buddens” where Saigon disses Joe over his own beat (as most rappers do) using “Pump it Up”. Below is a video of Joe Budden and his affiliate Killah BH listening to the latest diss.
