Lloyd Banks - Love Me In The Hood

Love Me In The Hood a new single from Lloyd Banks is not too bad considering what the game has become since G-Unit keep quite.

The track drop last week and the response is okay to say the least, beat is great, hook sweet “They Love Me In The Hood” is done well. Much to say about the verses, Banks’ keep his style, flow and has a personal connection for the Southside of the east coast matches perfectly. His NY style is definitely on this track which I was looking for on last year’s album (The Hunger For More 2) which had a couple of good singles but not enough to compete in today’s market like (Beamer Benz or Bently feat feat Juelz Santana), (start it up feat Kanye West Ryan Leslie, Swizz-Beatz and Fabolous) and with last attempt (any girl feat lloyd)

Most tracks mentioned above are club tracks that will make the girls dance but nothing solid to be remember compared to what came out from the likes of J.Cole, Lupe and Drake. Love Me In The Hood was suppose to be on the album but did go on don’t know why with a beat like this produced by AraacMuzik could’ve made a difference

Transition for the British rapper Chipmunk

The second British rapper to break into the American market after (Tiny Tempah) this album TRANSITION is a perfect balance of work.

One can only imagine how much work went into this album with the quality from production to choosing the correct people to be featured. On his grind you can tell he speaks a lot about his vision for himself with all the obstacles in his way. Not leaving his roots his proud being English with most artist featured are American. He definitely knows his target market from the selection of hooks to beats flows great together will have you repeating a track continuously with more of that quality on the rest of the album.

Tracks that feature:
01.  Transition
02.  Follow My Lead (Ft. Eric B)
03.  03. Flying High
04.  Champion (Ft. Chris Brown) future HIT
05.  Foul
06.  In The Air (Ft. Keri Hilson)
07.  Then And Now Great Story
08.  White Lies (Ft. Kalenna Of Diddy Dirty Money) On Radio
09.  Every Gyal (Ft. Mavado) On Radio
10.  Take Off (Ft. Trey Songz) HIT
11.  Armageddon (Ft. Wretch 32)
12.  Picture Me (Ft. Ace Young)
13.  Pray For Me

Ace deserves more

After the success of the up beat track produced by LEX hustle drove the charts crazy, had fans worldwide on their toes awaiting for 3rd album from ACE

Signed under DJ Khalid Ace has been moving some weight, and with this album theirs on change. The album felt more grown as usual but never lost his touch from his roots (GUTTA). He features a couple of artist, but always does majority of the album which shows that he can complete a track without the help of the big artist that are so close to him, We The Best

Keeping it G I expected nothing else his music is like Jeezy is to the Atlanta his to Miami 305 to be more specific. The 3rd album always depends are you going to survive in the game or not. Evolution of Ace following him from his first Mix-tape and album hasn't change much. He still delivers good quality each time even if he's recognized or not. Since the release of the album the hype has redirected to likes of Game and Lil Wayne not forgetting Watch the Throne that still doing extremely well. I think there is room for Ace in the game and he keep himself up right through all the drama which he always portrays so well with no effort (Stressing ft Plies on the GUTTA album) and (Lord Knows on the current album) that most people always relate to coming from Ace

Shots Fired

The only time when Jigga has ever went at anyone full force was at the time he beefed with Nas.

Hey its God's son after all, Jigga had to pull a rabbit out of the hat but I still feel he fell short, fast forward to currently and looks like Jigga might come out guns blazing this after Weezy dissed him and his wife.

Weezy says he was aware of how "It's Good" would be perceived and that it didn't faze him. On the track, Wayne raps:

"Talk about baby money, I got your baby money.
Kidnap your bitch get that that how much you love your lady money
I know you fake nigga, press your brakes nigga.
I’ll take you out, that’s a date nigga.
I’m a grown ass blood, stop playing with me."

Following the leak of “It’s Good”, Lil Wayne has already spoken on how he doesn’t fear repercussions from dissing Jay-Z. Speaking with VIBE.com, Weezy explained that he knew what the response would be to the record, but that it didn’t concern him.

“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did,” he said. “I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction.”

He elaborated by stating that he’s aware of how a song like “It’s Good” would be perceived, but it’s all part of his plan.

“I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record],” he continued. “I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.

The leak of the Carter-4

4 hours ago the leak the lil Wayne's for coming album that is to be released on the 29/08/2011 has been a shock. Hulkshare might just crash again because its that good after the previous incidents with Wale's mixtape Eleven on Eleven.

Trey Songz Would Like To Pull A Watch The Throne With Drake

Jigga first did it with R Kelly and called the album the Best of Both World, hell even though its a different genre he went on to collabo with Linkin Park.

From there on many rappers wanted to do a best of both worlds type of album with rumours of many but only Bow Wow and Omarion dropped Face Off. Fast forward a few odd some years later and Trey Songz says he would like to do one with Drake. Yes a best of both worlds with his buddy Drizzy.

Speaking with TheSource.com, Trigga Trey explained that the musical chemistry is there and that the results would be “authentic.” Trigga Trey says the resulting album would be "very authentic."

“When thinking along the lines of that, Drake is the first person that comes to mind that I am that musically comfortable with in that space,” he said. “He is a friend of mine as well, and I think we can pull something off like that could sound very authentic.”

Like with Jay and ‘Ye, he said that he couldn’t force a collaborative LP, and that it would have to come organically.

“I mean, you got to look at Kanye and Jay-Z and see how long it took them to do it, you know? So it has to be organic in whatever way it happens. It can’t be a business decision and you can’t look at it in a way of making it lucrative. I think it has to be something that you are definitely going into for music’s sake. It has to be something real, because if it’s not authentic you can hear it.”
