5 10 2009

mtv-hottest-mcs
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.

10. Raekwon

9. 50 Cent

8. Fabolous

7. Young Jeezy

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.

Dope or Nope 8/23 – New Jay & Drake

23 08 2009

Jay-z feat. Drake – We Off That (Produced by Timbaland)
Jay-z
Aside from the singles off Blueprint 3, “We Off That” is the first track to leak from the album. Originally “We Off That” was supposed to be the first single, but Hov switched it up and dropped “D.O.A.” and “Run This Town” instead. When people got word that this was supposed to be the single off the album, fans had mixed feelings about featuring Drake on a lead single. It turns out that the anticipated guest spot was only on the hook. Timbaland lends production on this club banger giving Blueprint 3 a balanced sound with all the tracks that have leaked so far. Which track are you feeling the most, “D.O.A.”, “Run This Town”, or “We Off That”?
Big ups to my nigga Nyt for puttin me up on this track!
