Album Review: Ghostface Killah – Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City

30 09 2009

Ghostdini The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City
Out of all 9 members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah is arguably the most successful and consistent as a solo artist. He’s dropped a total of 8 albums and are typically filled with street joints, imaginative story telling, and unforgettable soul samples. Occasionally throughout Ghost Dini’s discography, you’ll find the songs for the ladies; on Bulletproof Wallets he had “Never Be the Same Again” with Carl Thomas, Pretty Toney featured Missy on “Tush” and Fishscale had “Back Like That” with Ne-Yo. Ghost’s past tracks for the ladies and an R&B vibe helped him take a new direction with his eighth LP Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City.
Will the album continue Ghostface’s consistency, or will it be a cliche record for the ladies?

Why He’s Hot: Fabolous started his Loso’s Way campaign by telling the world that it was “his time,” and the boy from Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood lived up to his claim. Loso’s Way — a concept project inspired in part by the gangster film “Carlito’s Way” — became his first #1 LP on the Billboard albums chart, selling nearly 99,000 units in its first week of release. All year, we’ve been hearing “It’s Loso, in case you didn’t know, so …” for a reason: Fab never runs out of ammo with his tireless punch lines and swag!

Why He’s Hot: Over the past year, 50 Cent chose not to roam on one of his main predatory terrains, the Billboard charts, by continuing to hold back the release of his long-awaited Before I Self-Destruct LP. Instead, the G-Unit General began to fully realize the potential of another region in which he’d already planted his flag: the Internet.

It’s been two weeks since I posted a Chick of the Week entry, but I’m back with one of my favorites thus far.
This week’s Chick of the Week is the Island beauty Nilanti Narain. Nilianti is a model/recording artist/actress from LA with roots from the Fiji Islands. I spotted her a couple of days ago when I was passing through Twitter, and she happens to be my homie’s homie. Aside from how I came across her, you may have seen her in spreads from Show Magazine, Exotic, Elle, and appearing on Kanye’s blog. As far as music video’s go, she’s done videos with Kanye West, Snoop, Twista, 112, and others.
Nilanti has beautiful eyes, pretty skin, and nice all natural breasts. The fact that she can sing, act, and model makes Nilanti a triple threat. Continue reading to peep more pics of the sexy Nilanti Narain.

MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #10 – Raekwon

28 09 2009

MTV is back with their annual “Hottest MC In The Game” list. Over the next week or so, they will countdown Hip Hop’s top artists on a daily basis building a huge anticipation for who is the critically acclaimed hottest MC in the game. They’re kicking things off with Raekwon The Chef at #10. Check it out!

Why He’s Hot: They’ve got him behind the pot again! Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon the Chef came back to cook up one of the most potent offerings of 2009 with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, which is the hottest album in the streets right now. And no, the Brain Trust isn’t just overcome with nostalgia — the conceptual Cuban Linx II picks up where its timeless predecessor left off a decade and a half ago. Rae articulates his calm anger and heavy-handed, at times unmerciful underworld regulation with a compellingly clear yet callous delivery. Production-wise, he went for the best: RZA, Dr. Dre, the late J Dilla.
