Country Grammar was craaaaaaazy popular when I was in middle school. Everyone knew HOT SHIT, E.I., St. Louie, and Ride Wit Me, the latter of which I still think has a great, great hook.

And then Nellyville was pretty damn popular for a brief moment, too, but it really wasn't all that good and then...then he started making songs with Tim McGraw and appearing in late night BET softcore porn music videos and he disappeared and now he is an utter embarrassment.

If you took a look at the setlists for my middle school dances, Nelly was a frequent player.

Soulja Boy was (is?) also popular in middle school dances.

Just sayin'

couldn't agree with you more. Ride Wit Me (great hook indeed) was my favourite song for about two years.

his new song makes me want to vomit, and i haven't vomited in about 15 years.

I've been spinning Wiz Khalifa for awhile now, and I can't get mad at a Toto/"Africa" sample, particularly when it's a collab with Curren$y. (Still not sure why it's titled "Huey Newton" though...)

YouTube - Wiz Khalifa - Huey Newton (Feat. Curren$y) (2010) W/ Link to Download

From Fresno, CA...Fashawn. Dude's incredible.

YouTube - Fashawn - The Ecology / The Score (Official Video)

Freddie Gibbs is attempting to singlehandedly bring gangsta rap back to the forefront of hip-hop. It doesn't hurt that he's one of the most talented MCs to emerge in recent years. "World So Cold" is on par with some of Tupac's best ballads—"Dear Mama," etc.

YouTube - FREDDIE GIBBS - "What It Be Like" - HD Music Video OFFICIAL

And, because I have to constantly rep Minneapolis, here's a homecoming performance of Atmosphere's "Always Coming Back Home to You."

I listened to the Fashawn song and the two Freddie Gibbs songs. Thanks for posting. Wasn't incredibly impressed with either of them, but I liked Fashawn better. The Tupac comparison for Gibbs is a tricky one, because his voice is just nowhere near as distinct and charismatic and, well, good as Pac's. The songs were alright, though.

I've never listened to Atmosphere, though I know they have a huge following up in Minnesota.

Oh, for sure. Any comparisons to greats are difficult. But, the Tupac parallel, for me, comes in the subject matter. Tupac is still far more intelligent and diverse—due to his mom's Black Panther upbringing and all—but Gibbs has some interesting things to say about the economic situations in Gary, Indiana as well. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to listen.

Seriously, check the Atmosphere sometime...it's not only a huge following in Minnesota now; their last album debuted at #4 on the Billboard charts.

And, if I can ask because I'm curious (this is also an open question to anyone who might stumble in here), what's the sort of thing you look for in an MC?

Also, Dre's first single from Detox was released a few days ago. Beat=sick, but I wish Nate Dogg were on it rather than Akon.

Very pretty, and I'm excited for any scraps he can offer, but not terribly substantial. Also, is it just my laptop speakers or is the mixing horrible on this?

since Travis was listening to it on speakers, I was privy to it as well, and I'm just not that impressed. I know I'm not a huge hip-hop fan, but I'm as antsy for this album to come out as anyone. I'm hoping this isn't really finished, because it sounds like it could be so much more, but as it is is just a groundwork for something better. It's pretty, really pretty.

Also, I'm not by any means an expert on Akon, but which part was he singing? . And was Snoop really there at all?

Probably laptop speakers. It sounded solid on my headphones, and it's supposedly the CD quality version, but of course, that doesn't mean they didn't screw up the mix.

And, yeah, it's nothing special, just a club jam. I can understand how people might be a bit miffed at waiting a decade for it. Regardless, if Detox ever drops, I'll be right there listening.

Akon's doing the chorus, and Snoop has the second verse.

Ok, that's what I *thought*.

Didn't realize Akon had a voice like that. He's not usually...singing.
