Trina feat. Keyshia Cole, "I Got A Thang For You" ([URL]) ... Even though her album is somethin clearly made for women as opposed to dudes, it's good to see that she's gotten some of her old edge back for some of these cuts. She's really stepped her actual rap game up a lot IMO since Diamond Princess

2 Pistols feat. T-Pain, "She Got It"....brand new cat, but with this ill T-Pain hook and a VICIOUS beat from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Jeezy's "Bury Me A G," Juelz' "Rumble Young Man Rumble"), you can't really go wrong...still interested to see what else he has though

Metafore, "I'm A Beast" prod. Alchemist....Alchemist gave dude his hottest beat in YEARS (aside from maybe "Stuck To You"), and Metafore's spittin hard on there too. Dude's been puttin in work for a while, so it's good to see him get a joint from Alc. link - [URL]

DJ Felli Fel feat. Akon, Diddy and Lil Jon, "Get Buck In Here"....perfect club joint - the beat is crazy, and to see everybody's energy like that on ONE track is crazy. It's not really lyrical at all, but I'll be damned if it doesn't get people on the dance floor...

Bow Wow & Omarion, "Designated Driver"....I wish this would've made the final cut, cuz it's an incredible song, but the whole Face Off album is dope, so I can't really complain. But yeah, crazy beat, they execute the concept well, just dope song overall

Has anyone heard of this? Basically, Blue Note is releasing this compilation called "Droppin Science," which has the label's songs that have been sampled the most. I think shit like this is dope, cuz not only does it show how creative producers are by how they switch em up, but it shows how timeless the original music is, too. Click [URL] for a blog with the whole tracklist, but I love the idea of this...

Joe Budden is the best mixtape rapper of all time. Period.

"How," by Lex Butter (myspace.com/lexbutterbx)....dude won a contest with Loud.com to perform with the Wu, and after hearing the songs on his page, I'm interested to see what else he comes with. Dude's got the east coast vibe that no one new has had in a while to me, and he's dope lyrically too; if he got some fitting production, he'd be good

Lex Butter, "Hoodtopia"....from what I hear, this cat won a contest with Loud.com in which the winner gets to perform with the Wu-Tang Clan. I like all the songs on his myspace page (myspace.com/lexbutterbx), but this is one of the better ones IMO, dude's got an interesting style

Wow....I love this so far. Maybe it's just part of me that's still wowing over all of them rapping together again, but I like the direction that RZA's taking the album in musically, too. I'm only four songs or so in, but I'm still liking it a LOT, definitely worthy of being copped from what I've heard so far. Wish there was more Ghostface, but like I said, still gotta listen...

Lil Ru, "Don't I Look Good"....this new cat from South Carolina on Capitol...song is pretty crazy - dope production, addictive hook, just a perfect club/radio joint. Don't know much about him, but this song has definitely gotten much burn as of late. Interesting to hear more from him...

right now, bumpin this sampler of Wyclef Jean's "The Carnival II: Memiors of an Immigrant" that I got at this party...it's only like four songs, but this is sounding pretty fucking official, so I think the album is gonna be crazy, judging by these songs and Wyclef's previous catalog

Definitely one of the albums of the year, heat from top to bottom
