Let's consolidate news & releases + keep this rolling.
DJ Quik & Kurupt - Blaqkout, definitely album of the summer! So so great. Buy it now!
Gucci Mane - A slew of pretty decent singles ('Photoshoot', 'Awesome' & 'Wonderful'), 'Awesome' being my favourite of the bunch for sure.
Clipse - Sad face. Really bummed that both 'Kinda Like A Big Deal' and 'I'm Good' are average at best. I'm genuinely gutted about this.
Mos Def - Still not got this. Have you? Tell me what you think.
Raekwon - 'New Wu' killed. Will Cuban Linx 2 ever come out?
Doom - Another middling record.
Young Dro - the new T.I.? Could be, especially as he's now on Grand Hustle + Tip is doing time. 'Clean Wit It' is totally ace.
Ghostface - He's gone all R&B on us with 'Forever'. Hmmmm. See how this works out.
Big Boi - Sir Luscious Left Foot: the Son of Chico Dusty is meant to be coming out this year, same situ as Raekwon really. 'Royal Flush' was wicked, got high hopes for this.
Wale - Is he any good? I've still not listened to him. Keeps being mentioned on P4K, make of that what you will (my view: he's probably good).
Erm, what else..oh yeah, the tour of the year: Lil Wayne & Young Jeezy. Almost worth going to America for (not a riff on the US, I just can't afford to fly there right now).
Now you (please no rubbish backpacker guff).
