The Creators - The Music ft. El Da Sensei

Smooth and classy hip-hop with a fat beat and a decent vocal, just the way I like it. Kicking in at about 95BPM, UK based The Creators mark a break from traditional big beat offerings. The nice fat beats are backed by quiet 20's style horns and humming. This, combined with bells and the occasional break give the track, and the instrumental in particular, an eerie almost haunting atmosphere.

El Da Sensei's excellent vocal skills and the occasional, but subtle and professional, scratching bring this tune back to the zeros (as in the decade after the 90's) and turn it into quite a laid back but nonetheless very enjoyable piece of hip hop.

MC Lyte - Cha Cha Cha

I've got the power to spread out and devour
At the same time I'll eat you up with a rhyme
But I'll let you slide cuz you accidently hopped on the wrong side
Now come on, that's suicide
Hypothetically speaking
Ok, let's say you didn't know what you were doing
You're new in town, and you're looking around
For another name to ruin, and it's me that you're pursuing?
Well well well, I'll be damned
I might as well tell you who I am
I am the capital l-y-t-e
And it's shocking I'm the one you're mocking
Oh yes, I've been watching you watching me
And like the fat on your back it's plain to see
That you're a wannabe, but you can't be what you're not
So you better start living with what you got

Mic Geronimo - Masta I.C.

Now i'm not a big fan of Mic Geronimo. I do have the Vendetta album, but I bought it just for the Pete Rock joint "Unstoppable". Damn, that track sounds nice. But there's this other gem I treasure: Masta I.C.!!! It features Royal Flush on the backvocals and it's produced by Buckwild. Man, shit is buttersoft... Bump this one in your Landcruiser, 2 miles an hour, so everybody sees you!

Ghostface ft. Ne-Yo - Back Like That

Toney Starks aka Iron Man aka Ghostface Killah aka one of the freshest cats in this hiphop game. Well, that's my opinion ofcourse.
Although his albums never sold millions, every album was up to date, diverse and full of energy. I don't understand why people are sleeping on his stuff.
His new album will be released on March 14th. With a list of dope producers that will raise eyebrows (MF Doom, J Dilla, Pete Rock and Madlib), Ghostface seems to have done his homework on which producers are hot right now so he nows what the streets want to hear.

"You know, niggas try to come on that other shit," he says of hip hop's growing ranks of imposters, "So I just had come back to raw drugs, sex, money, and murder shit real quick to show these young niggas how it's s'possed to be done."

"Fish Scale is just me showing that I can still ball with the best of them," he says. "With each album I learn so this album has the most knowledge of all of them. This album is gonna put me back on top of everyone's list," he says. "Ain't nobody approaching they music with the care that I do--down to the sequencing." (Def Jam)

I say, bring it on Ironman!!! The new single is out. A nice soul track featuring the r&b crooner Ne-Yo. I think it's a fresh cut in which Ghost makes clear that his pimpstatus has it's ups and downs, but that the pimp in him can resolve every hoodrat-problem. Check it out.

Kool G Rap & DJ Polo - Road To The Riches

For the ones who don't know or who have forgotten:
The "Kool Genius of Rap" began life as Nathaniel Wilson in a rough section of Queens, where he first met Eric Barrier and Polo, two friends with a mutual interest in hip-hop. While Barrier went onto a short-lived yet successful career as the less-acknowledged half of Eric B and Rakim, Polo and G Rap collaborated and released the It's a Demo/I'm Fly 12" on Cold Chillin' in 1986. This legendary single was the first of several; "Streets of New York," "Poison," and "Road to the Riches" also being noteworthy singles. G Rap also graced Marl's "The Symphony," a performance that promised him legendary status in itself. By 1989 he was making LPs rather than 12" singles, signaling G Rap's rise from the underground to mainstream recognition. Yet while Juice Crew peers such as Big Daddy Kane and Biz Markie scored crossover singles, had big-selling LPs, and soon found themselves on MTV, G Rap struggled with his sudden position on the uncomfortable brink of crossing over. Sure, his LPs had their share of highlights such as "Road to the Riches" and "Erase Racism," in addition to the aforementioned singles, but his albums with Polo never achieved what many had hoped for in terms of popularity.
