Last week I featured the following songs…

DRAKE “FOREVER” FT. KANYE WEST, LIL WAYNE & EMINEM

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Reef’s take:

A pretty sick line up here over a banging track by Boi Wonda. I know Eminem is my boss and all but he ripped his verse to shreds! Well done Marshall

Callers take:

The track got high approval from the callers

JAY-Z “VENUS VS. MARS”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Reef’s take:

As the release of Blueprint 3 approaches a couple of songs have leaked and are the subject of great debate as to whether Hov’s still got it, is the album going to be a classic and so forth. I have heard all sorts of opinions from listeners all week but with this song, Hov displays the slick wordplay and lyrical ingenuity that makes him truly one of the all time greats. Timbo’s beat is a banger as well

Caller’s take:

There are def some Jay-Z haters out there but there was positive responses from callers as well

RAEKWON “CATALINA” FT. LYFE JENNINGS

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Reef’s take:

The anticipation for Only Built… Part 2 is hitting a fever pitch with the release of this banger produced by none other than Dr. Dre. What a combination! OBFCL Part 2 in stores Sept 8th

Callers take:

Callers loved this one

PILL “TRAP GOIN’ HAM”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Reef’s take:

I try to give new artists a look and Pill has got a buzz growing out of Atlanta. The song is super catchy with it’s Beastie Boys “The New Style” sample running underneath the track while Pill drops that serious dopeboy slang. The song reminds me of some vintage Mannie Fresh productions during the Cash Money run. Peep the video on Youtube it’s as hood as it gets.

Callers take:

Callers were not feeling Pill but I have a feeling the song will win people over eventually

RED CAFÉ “I TOTE GUNS” FT. NOTORIOUS B.I.G.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Reef’s take:

More new music from Red giving a nod to his BK brother from Flatbush and St. James for some help on the hook. A hard street joint with slick metaphors from Mr. Cafe.

Callers take:

Callers were not feeling this one.

  1. What’s up with Drake first he was cool with Kardinal Offishall. Then they got Beef cause Drake did like a song Kardinal Offishall did. So is he stealing his song Bring It Back is that a Jab back at Kardinal Offishall?

  2. The drake track is fire. I was bumping him before the success as an artist came. Nice check his old stuff.

    RED cafe track is ok but the beat is weak to me. It goes hard with BIG in the back but it lacks.
