Kanye West Good Life Featuring T-Pain for Throwback Thursday

Kanye West is one of the most polarizing rappers that’s ever touched the mic. Kanye West recently released his Christian album; Jesus is King which I haven’t checked out. Before that, Kanye was having his Sunday Service all across the country. One of the albums that was played this past week was his Graduation project. Graduation sold almost a million copies the first week of its release. The Graduation album had plenty of gems on the album. There’s probably about two or three tracks that wasn’t for me on the album. Graduation made 3 ... [read more]

Who was a fan of the Ruff Ryders back in the day? We all remember DMX, The Lox, Swizz Beatz and those Ruff Ryders compilations. For this Throwback Thursday, we’re going to turn our attention to the first lady of Ruff Ryders. Eve always held her own whenever she got on tracks with any of them.

Jay Z Song Cry for Throwback Thursday

First off, Happy Halloween to everyone out there and be safe! Make sure you remember this weekend that the time falls back due to Daylight Savings.

T.I. had 2Pac on top and Jay-Z followed by him and Jigga ... [read more]

Makaveli Hail Mary for Throwback Thursday Featuring the Outlawz

Makaveli 2 and 3 were on my playlist for this past week. If you’re old enough to remember, those Makaveli tapes were in high demand.  After Pac passed away, a lot of his unreleased music was leaked as part of the Makaveli series. As we all know, the official Makaveli album dropped a couple months after he passed away. My Throwback Thursday track is from the album, Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. The album had several gems on it, but the featured track is none other than Hail Mary. Hail Mary is a spooky and dark track, plus it was accompanied ... [read more]

Talib Kweli Never Been in Love for Throwback Thursday

Talib Kweli is one of the dopest MCs to ever pick up a mic. About three weeks ago, we celebrated the 15 year anniversary of his The Beautiful Struggle album. The overall album is dope and one of his tracks will be the featured Throwback Thursday track. Never Been in Love is the name of the track and it’s produced by the great Just Blaze. Never Been in Love is one of my favorite Talib Kweli track. When you put the production of Just Blaze with the lyrical flow of Kweli you have an instant hit. Never Been in Love is the second single from The ... [read more]
