Prince Paul - Negroes On Ice

"Negroes On Ice" is an entertaining idea from Prince Paul - it's just not a concept that needed to be shoe-horned into the medium of an album.

Blu and Exile - Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them

Blu and Exile are without doubt a couple of super-talented Rap chaps, but they need to step out of their snug comfort zone.

Lil B - Green Flame (Mixtape Review)

There's a tangibly meaner and more menacing streak to the album, with B's content veering towards a nastier and, well, bitchier zone.

The most persuasive moments of Kaliko's 17-track effort stick to a rugged and uncompromising formula.

review

Odd Future - OF Tape Vol. 2

Without constantly conjuring up an air of controversy about their moves, Odd Future can sound decidedly dull.
