BHoward No Comments

G-Unit‘s open season on other people’s instrumentals seems to finally be over. After wreaking havoc in the form of freestyles to announce their reunion on wax following their reunion onstage at this year’s Hot97 Summer Jam, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck have finally dropped their first original song together, “Come Up.” Released on Youtube today, “Come Up” benefits from an old-school hip-hop, slightly New York sound, with Fif harking back to the days of old by employing a sing-songy hook and each of the Unit’s cohorts using their flows to [...]

Chan-Lo No Comments

Stephen A. Smith‘s weekend was probably one of the worst ever as he felt the sting of e-hate for comments that led many to believe he was blaming women for domestic violence.

(TSS) Another day, [...]

Chan-Lo No Comments

The rollout for Big K.R.I.T.‘s new album Cadillactica has officially begun as Def Jam releases the first official single, “Pay Attention.” All signs point to hit with this Rico Love-featured jam as the lyrics appeal to a certain desirable female and Rico croons the sweeter sentiments on the song’s hook. One of the subtle, yet significant, changes is that producer K.R.I.T. relinquishes board work duty to hitmaker Jim Jonsin. Don’t fret, though. K.R.I.T’s signature caddy cruise sound remains with a soulful twist provided by Jonsin’s swoon-worthy production. “Pay Attention” is ultimately a song that [...]
