Dope or Nope 11/10: Khaled & Friends Are At It Again

10 11 2009

DJ Khaled feat. Rick Ross, Drake, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Usher (Produced by The Runners)
Dj Khaled Fed Up
This joint leaked a couple of weeks ago featuring only Jeezy, Drake, Rick Ross, and Usher. It looked as if the feature list is too short for a DJ Khaled single, and next thing you know Wayne is now added to the list. Khaled continues to follow the same formula from “We Takin Over”, “I’m So Hood”, and “Out Here Grindin'” with The Runners providing production to the track as usual. Dj Khaled’s fourth release Victory is expected to drop early 2010.

Over the past week, MTV would announce an entry in their highly talked about annual Top 10 Hottest MC’s in the Game list. The list began with East Coast veteran Raekwon and followed up with more New York artists, but then stirred up some controversy by placing Gucci Mane and Rick Ross in the middle of the list. The daily countdown ended at number 5, and numbers 4 through 1 was left a surprise for this Sunday’s program for the countdown. As expected, Jay-z was number one. Check the list below (click any of the artists names to view the article) and continue reading to view my interpretation of the list.

MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #3 – Drake

4 10 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.


Why He’s Hot: Drake proclaims himself to be “the one, twice over/ The new 11.” He’s definitely one of kind. We haven’t seen a single mixtape as universally triumphant as his So Far Gone.

We’ve seen guys turn the street-music hustle into instant ‘hood-icon status and get record deals before, like Young Jeezy (who actually got two deals, one with the group Boyz N Da Hood as well as a solo deal), the Diplomats and of course 50 Cent and G-Unit.
