This week I featured the following songs…
RAKIM “WALK THESE STREETS” FT. MAINO
New heat from the God MC with a lil assist from Maino from his solo album which comes out Nov. 17th. The divide between today’s hip-hop fans and those who are fans from way back never fails to spark debate. Which brings us to Rakim. The prospect of a long overdue solo project excites many (yours truly included) while a lot of other folks would rather “kill dat noise”. I say live and let live.
Some callers didn’t want to hear that “old school shit” while others loved it so there it is.
SNOOP DOGG “GANGSTA LUV” FT. THE-DREAM
Snoop is swinging for the fences with this one and this should work for him. Fellas you may not dig this one but I bet ya girl will so get ready to hear this one a lot on the radio and in the car.
The fellas called in to hate saying it’s too soft so that’s a sure sign of a hit record.
USDA “CTE 4 LIFE”
USDA has adjusted the line-up a bit but they don’t miss a step here with the bangin track courtesy of The Bizness. Soon to be heard rattling from a car system in a hood near you.
Very positive feedback on this one.
YOUNG DRO “I DON’T KNOW YALL” FT. YUNG L.A.
Grand Hustle reps heavy with the latest from Dro. Two very different and distinct styles trade puchlines on this one.
Callers were split on whether this song was all good.
ROYCE DA 5’9″ “DINNER TIME” FT. BUSTA RHYMES
Another strong new offering from one of the D’s finest spitters as anticipation for his Oct. 20th solo albums builds. Should be a good one so get ready.
Callers were def feeling this one.
