It’s Raw

(tags off this fucking track for a reason).

Bun B – Another Soldier

another mildly disappointing rap album, what’s new. this track shines the hardest, though, with memories of pimp c and the magnanimous ridin’ dirty running through dj khalil’s wailin’ guitars and restless keys. (and yeah, i’m not implying obama is all syrup talk, per se).

Riko – She Won’t Leave Me Alone

Dettmann & Klock – Dead Man Watches the Clock

Osborne – Fresh
Osborne – Daylight Pyjama Mix by Isolee

trying to deliver on the sparkling promise of outta sight, osborne is to house to what is this it? was to 2001. okay, not quite, and nothing here challenges the meticulous craft displayed on ‘sight’, then again that’s not really his fault. heavy BUMP on that isolee remix. i strongly advise you snatch it, and do just that.

Beanie Sigel – Gangsta Gangsta Ft Kurupt

no one had mastered those deep-ricocheting strings like circa ’01 kanye (ala ‘the truth’). or constantly had just blaze beat, until ‘girls girls girls’ dropped and the script flipped ie. oh, dude.
