Gotta love this pic of Raekwon "The Chef," and this new joint he cooked up with Brooklyn MC Maino titled, "Realer."

Raekwon - Realer (ft. Maino)



[Audio] K. Sparks - Genesis




"I was in the middle of going through a lot of beats that were not grabbin me at all...after a while I got bored and put the pen down to start watching some super clear bootleg DVDs...one flick had Samuel L Jackson talkin about how he is the Genesis and that no one can fuck wit him...I thought the concept was cool and so I started lookin for a beat that could match the Genesis vibe I was goin for...then I came across this joint that T-Mos sent me...when I heard it the beat made me want to emphasize clever word play along with solid punch lines...the song has a cocky tone but it's merited...thanks for all of the support...check it out"-K.

Cam'ron - I Hate My Job


[Video] Papoose - Real Niggas Finish Last




Here goes a new street video for the track "Real Niggas Finish Last" by Papoose. I don't really understand Pap's promotion grind, this joint was not featured on his recent mixtape, so wouldn't it make more sense to drop a video for a track that was on it. Anyway, Pap's debut album is still dropping in Nevuary, can't wait.

[Audio] Rick Ross - Kiss My Pinky Ring, Curly (50 Cent Diss)




So after numerous radio interviews Rawse finally drops his own diss track at 50. After listening to the track, Ross definitely does not go in on this one, deciding rather to spit garbage lyrics with weak punchlines. The beat selection couldn't of been worse, rhyming over Black Rob's "Special Delivery,"which certainely is not the best choice for a diss record. All in all Ross should just give up as soon as possible; the internet soliders have spoken and are siding with 50 on this one.


Rick Ross - Kiss My Pinky Ring, Curly (50 Cent Diss)


Artist Spotlight: Suave The Ape




Let me introduce you to a dope up-coming MC out of New Brunswick, NJ, who goes by the name, Suave The Ape.

I put my feelings, thoughts, and visions into my work. & I express them on a beat."

The Game calls up Eddie Francis on Kube 93 Radio to discuss the projects he's working on, his upcoming show in Seattle, his Madden '09 battle with Bow Wow, and last but not least his take on the ongoing 50 Cent & Rick Ross beef. Oddly enough The Game says he's ridin' with 50 on this one.

[Video] Cam'ron - I Hate My Job




So this is the way Cam'ron makes his return to the game, with a lame ass video & song about hating your job. I've always been a fan of Cam'ron's music espicially his earlier works, but it appears his music ability has suffered since the Dipset break-up. Hopefully Cam can find his old self and return to the form we all know and enjoy.

Kobe Bryant put on a show for the ages, scoring 61 points without missing one free throw. The Knicks were able to stay in the game through three quarters but Kobe was completely unstoppable and was the difference in the game. His 61 Points is a record for anyone in Madison Square Garden, surpassing the legend Michael Jordan's classic performance. With the Cleveland Cavs & Boston Celtics coming to the garden this week, the Knicks are gonna have to step up their defensive play.

[Video] 50 Cent Threatens Rick Ross




“Hey what’s up? Alright, y’all caught me. I was practicing for my new rock-n-roll album.”

50 Cent takes a break from recording his "rock album" to discuss his new beef with Rick Ross. 50 states that he is gonna fuck Officer Ricky's life up for fun, and says that he has already purchased the court transcripts from Ricky's past life. He also takes a shot at DJ Khaled calling him a "faggot." Being that 50 is one of the most entertaining characters in hip-hop, when situations like this arrive he is more then willing to get it on and take it to wax. He has taken part of three of the most entertaining rap beefs in history in recent years, and most certainely bows down to nobody. I look forward to hearing more disses from 50, since I could careless for Ross and his bullshit music.

[Audio] Fat Joe ft. Akon - One





Here goes the first single off Fat Joe's untitled new album, featuring none other than Akon. Fat Joe is one of the most diverse artists in the game, rangeing from joints like "That White" produced by DJ Premier to "Make It Rain" featuring Lil Wayne. He definitely has the ability to make a hit over any type of beat, but I'd personally like to see his ol' school D.I.T.C. swagger back.


Fat Joe ft. Akon - One



[Audio] Raekwon - Yes Sir (ft. Ghostface Killah & Crooked I)




On February 19th, Stenge-O-Matic of Anotha Level will be releasing a project called “The Live & Direct Show” which features none-other-than Crooked I. However, this project is more than a regular underground feature as Crooked I appears along side the Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. Many Hip Hop fans would consider this to be a “dream team” collaboration. Fans are able to preview the track on the project’s MySpace page and can make their purchase through Amazon when it becomes available. Those who are not familiar with Stenge-O-Matic’s group Anotha Level may be interested to know that their first album “On Anotha Level” was executively produced by Ice Cube and sold over 250,000 records in 1994. Stenge’s upcoming “Live & Direct Show” also features T.I., Glasses Malone, Akon and many more. Make sure to cop this project and support this heat!

Here some footage of Royce chillin' with Diddy down in Tampa at a Super Bowl party. Word is that Royce & Joe may be doing some ghostwriting for Diddy's new album, which would be a good look for Diddy.

[Audio] J.R Writer ft. Fred Money & Charlie Clips - Writer, Money & Drugs




Here is a new joint off J.R Writer's forthcoming album, Cinecrack, to be released March 31st through Babygrande Records. He gathers his brother Fred Money some dude Charlie Clips and a dope beat from The TrakDealaz. J.R isn't putting out records like he was back when the Dip's were poppin', but when he drops a joint he always comes correct. Added two bonus joints supposedly off Writers Block Vol. 6, but who knows if that is even dropping.


[Video] DukeDaGod's New Producer, AraabMuzik




Here is some footage of Dipset & DukeDaGod's new producer, AraabMuzik goin' buck wild on the MPC at a local bar. The bar most definitely looks dead but this dude has some crazy talent with the MPC, I look forward to hearing what he can cook up for the Dips.

[Audio] Termanology - Tight Pants Are For Girls




Here is a new track from Term' over some classic DJ Premier production. As you can see from the title, Term' is not feelin' all these dudes walking around wearing pants that look like they belong on a female. I definitely can agree with him on that one; what ever happened to the baggy pants fad? Anyway, enjoy some new Term', the colloboration album with Statik Selektah is comin' real soon.

[Audio] 50 Cent - Officer Ricky (Go Head,Try Me) (Rick Ross Diss)




Recently southern artist Rick Ross took shots at 50 Cent on the song "Mafia Music." He stated “I love to pay ya bills, can’t wait to pay ya rent/Curtis Jackson, baby mama ain’t looking for a cent/Burn the house down, you gotta buy another/Don’t forget the gas can, jealous stupid motherfucker.” Now either Rick Ross has some top notch ghostwriters lined up or he's just plain stupid. 50 basically lives for beef, and has certainly been in his fair share of battles. With both artists releasing albums in the near future, look for a new battle to begin in hip-hop. Personally I don't think Rick Ross stands a chance in this battle, he should just let this diss track from 50 be the last and move on with his life, we'll just have to wait and see what Officer Ricky does. 50 also takes shots at Lil Wayne & DJ Khaled in this song, he's obviously trying to get as much promotion for his album as he can. Major props to MissInfo for the linkage.

[Audio] DJ Suss.One - Who Shot Ya 2K9 (ft. Red Cafe, Uncle Murda & Maino)




DJ Suss.One from Power 105.1 Radio Station in NYC gathered up three of New York's hardest rappers for a 2009 version of Biggie & Diddy's classic joint "Who Shot Ya." This has got to be one of the most used instrumentals in hip-hop history, yet the beat never seems to get old. All three rappers go in on this one, NY Stand Up!

[Video] Lil Wayne - Interview With Katie Couric (Preview)




Katie Couric of CBS recently met with Lil' Wayne in an interview that will air before Tuesday nights Grammy Awards Show. This is just a little preview of the interview, and you can already tell it will be entertaining.

[Audio] Q-Tip - Renaissance Rap (Remix) (ft. Busta Rhymes, Raekwon & Lil Wayne)




Here is the remix to Q-Tip's "Renaissance Rap," which is one of my favorite cuts off his latest album, The Renaissance. He gathers up Busta Rhymes, Raekwon & oddly enough Lil' Wayne for a dope remix. You already know when Q & Busta get together it's gonna be ill, but throw in Raekwon & Lil Wayne and you got yourself a classic lineup. Props to the NMC for this one.
