50 Cent – The Massacre

It’s pretty much just a “Meh” for me. It’s more dancey/lovey than it is “I got shot nine times.” Many critics are saying that 50 has gotten soft…I might tend to agree. “The Massacre” is a good collection of songs, lots of danceable tunes and all, but not what I was really expecting. I actually had hoped that the radio ... Read More »

Is “The Game” the Savior of West Coast Rap?

My initial reaction to this CD was lukewarm...but sometimes you need to take a second listen, in a different atmosphere to really hear something.

Is Hip-Hop Ready For This?

Is it too much to ask these “hardcore gangstas” to deal with mental illness? Now, BPD does not make X crazy, hell way more folks suffer from it than you would imagine (someone recently suggested ...

Trick Daddy – Thug Matrimony: Married to the Streets

Is this the best Trick Daddy CD ever? It just might be…I for sure haven’t dropped this one from the rotation in my changer since I got it. Its got your “crunk”, its got your “miami bass”, its got your flowing lyrics…it got me moving! Trick Daddy teamed up with hot producer Lil’ Jon on the huge crossover hit “Let’s ... Read More »

DAMN!!! Rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard, one of the founding members of Wu-Tang Clan, collasped and died in a Manhattan recording studio. O.D.B. had complained of chest pains before collapsing. He was 35-years-young. Just when the Wu was getting back on track…tragedy strikes. Just damn… Read More »
