Tuesday, May 12


Its new music Tuesday, so lets get you caught up on what's dropping dropped today. It's been a minute since I rocked one of these posts, but I thought it was about time I got back on my bullshit (No Busta). As always, I've provided a song for you so you can get a taste of what to expect. Make sure to go out and support good music.

Cam'Ron - "Crime Pays"

Killa Cam returns after nearly a 3 year hiatus from the rap game with his latest effort Crime Pays. Cam took the time off to take care of his sick mother instead of fueding with emcees. Cam even admitted that he thought about retirement during his time away. Well, Harlemites and rap fans alike are glad he didn't.

[LISTEN]: Cam'ron - "I Used To Get It In Ohio"

Gucci Mane - "Murder Was The Case"

Gucci Mane takes a page out of Snoop Dogg's book with the title of his latest album, Murder Was The Case. And it's not just a snazzy album title. Gucci Mane was arrested for murder back in 2005, the day before his debut album was released, for shooting a 27-year-old man. Georgia prosecutors dropped the charges in January 2006 based on lack of evidence, and here were are now.

Paul Wall - "Fast Life"

Straight outta Houston, Paul Wall returns for his third studio album, Fast Life. The People's Champ, who stated this album would be stronger than his previous efforts, worked with the likes of Too Short, Yung Joc, Tech N9ne, and drummer Travis Barker.

Tanya Morgan - "Brooklynati"

And the Hip Hop Official Pick of the Week comes from the group Tanya Morgan, who reps both Brooklyn, New York and Cincinnati, Ohio on their latest album, Brooklynati. The trio consists of Don Will, Von Pea, and Ilyas, who in order to promote the album, created an entire multi-media campaign, complete with a website for the fictitious city of Brooklynati that includes a map, attractions, restaurants, and postcards you can send to your friends. They even elected the legendary ?uestlove mayor of the city. Why wouldn't you want to live there?
