review

Fabolous - From Nothin' To Somethin'

This is not the signature album that we were waiting for. He does himself a favor by not switching up; on the other hand I was almost hoping to see him try something new seeing as this has never lead to great albums in the past.

review

R Kelly - Double Up

Double Up is R. Kelly's 13th album (not counting the unreleased Loveland) and easily his most interesting. Perhaps not his best, but definitely his most interesting.

review

Webbie & Lil' Boosie Present Trill Fam - Survival of the Fittest

I respect the south, and I can get down with good southern hip hop like the next man. But this is not good music. It's typical southern rap, plain and simple.

"...Bad Boy South was created when 8Ball and MJG came along, so I guess that kinda speaks for itself that we really not part of the Bad Boy legacy."

interview

review

8Ball - Light Up The Bomb

Widely credited with repping the south before the south was cool, Eightball and MJG have been in the game for a very, very long time. The duo was the first rap act anywhere near Memphis to go platinum, but were huge in the dirty dirty long before that.

review

Snoop Dogg - Blue Carpet Treatment

He has made his share of bad songs and less than stellar albums, but his near 15 year career is one few can compete with. Snoop is hip-hop royalty, and The Blue Carpet Treatment is only fitting.

interview

Jim Jones talks about rumors of problems between he and Cam

review

Birdman & Lil Wayne - Like Father, Like Son

Like Father, Like Son is a solid, creative album on which Lil Wayne and The Birdman go where others have failed - by doing an entire album of duos.

Sleepy Brown - Mr Brown

Sleepy Brown is the type of artist who lives in his own world of music. Best known for lacing Big Boi with hooks, Sleepy is actually no stranger to solo albums.

review

Beyonce - B-Day

Beyonc

review

DMX - The Year of the Dog Again

Let me put it like this: If you've ever a) gone to the club, b) gotten drunk, c) started a fight, d) took something home, and then e) set the alarm clock for Sunday school, then you'll love this album.

review

Rick Ross - Port Of Miami

The six foot, 290 lb Ross is not shy about it, or about his expertise in getting, cooking, & flipping that "all white".

review

Pharrell - In My Mind

I have to call a spade a spade. Pharrell Williams cannot rap. Not even a little bit. Okay, he's got a good flow, but that's it.
