After 10 years of waiting, Rah Digga proves she is a veteran who can stand alone - in her class as well as on the microphone.

Bisco Smith - The Broadcast

Bisco is an acquired taste. This is music that moves the mind to a point where the body may follow. The Broadcast transmits without static, and whether or not you adjust your dial, you can hear the quality in the music.

Mitchy Slick Presents Wrongkind - Yellow Tape

Much like that of Dr. Dre and Ice Cube's intro to "Natural Born Killaz," the audience is warned from the album's opening, and which side of the yellow tape you end up on can be easily determined.

Trick Daddy - Finally Famous: Born A Thug, Still A Thug

Trick Daddy is indeed still a thug. Though hustlers are Rap's new thug, the Miami veteran sticks to his guns - and glory. His first non-Slip-N-Slide album is a diamond in the rough.

Blue Scholars - OOF! EP

The EP, OOF! manages to deliver an eloquent yet subtle positivity when you truly listen to the words. Blue Scholars makes music how it used to be done. The music uplifts your thoughts and Geologics

Nat King Cole - Re: Generations

The producers had to be inventive, innovative, creative and even out of the box, but the smartest thing that they had to do was to make sure that the star of the track always remained the vocals of Nat King Cole.

review

Grandmaster Flash - The Bridge: Concept Of A Culture

Grandmaster Flash might be defined by many as "old school," but once The Bridge is listened to GrandMaster Flash's beats and production should go on to school many.

Junclassic - Overqualified

Either way it's more than academic when it comes to the album, Overqualified. Junclassic's skills and experience more than qualify when it comes to creatively getting the job done.

As a fan of Sadat X's previous work, this album at times felt like a mixtape, or an if you ever wondered how his voice would sound over other classic tracks, well here you go type of scenario

review

Diamond D - The Huge Hefner Chronicles

The Huge Hefner Chronicles is chock-full of joints. There is no need to fast forward or to skip. If gimmicks, non-lyrics, non-stories and non-flows is the type of Hip Hop that you need to quench your thirst then this is not the album for you.

Hooking you with its energy as you fiend for the next track, you definitely will enjoy the high, but you might not want to become addicted.

Usher - Here I Stand

Usher doesn't drastically stray to far away from what got him here, but compared to it's predecessor, this album is more laid back.
