Faith Evans – Keep the Faith, Book Review.

Faith Evans’ relevance to hip-hop and R&B has been cut down to her being one of the original members of the Bad Boy family and her being married to hip-hop’s beloved icon, The Notorious B.I.G. Faith, or (ghost?)writer Aliya S. King, recognizes this and opens the book with the night..

Blame One – Raw And Unreleased Mixtape.

Exile produces the shit out of this mixtape from Cali’s Blame One. His beats are nonstop retarded and Blame One keeps it moving on the mic. The only thing it’s missing is any kind of cohesion as it’s a compilation of unreleased joints. His album Days Chasing Days drops January..

Jockin’ Jay-Z With 100% More Puppets

I was pretty much already sick of this song until P-Dash breathed new life into it by ingeniously  incorporating puppets. Mark my words: puppets are the next big thing in hip-hop. Place this quote and win 100 ML funpoints*: He’s like Gandhi, but better – he likes puppets. I love..
