Drake - Nothing Was the Same* (Album Review)
Release Date: Sept. 2013


8/10

I have to say I'm pretty impressed with Drake's new album. Most people have already heard Started from the Bottom, Hold on, We're Going Home and All Me. All three are very strong singles. Furthest Things, Wu-Tang Forever and From Time are my other favorites from this album. There a few tracks that I don't really like too much, but overall it is very enjoyable. Drake is still going strong and his album will sell well.

Jason Derulo feat. 2 Chainz - Talk Dirty*
Release Date: Aug. 2013


8/10


This is a spicy number from Jason Derulo. The jazzy beat and hard hitting bass will get everyone on the dance floor. 2 Chainz actually fits the track. This will have people talkin' dirty.

 Recommended for most playlists.

Britney Spears - Work B*tch* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013

 
7/10


This song from Britney has potential. I think it would be great as a mash-up with another song. She keeps churning out songs and I give her props for stayin' strong.

Katy Perry feat. Juicy J - Dark Horse 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


8/10


The beat is cray on this one. The beat and lyrics fit so well together. I give major props to Katy Perry for this one. We'll see how her album holds up. Juicy J does his thing like usual. Mash-up time.

336 Boyz - My Team* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


7/10


I really like this track from 336 Boyz. Especially if your partyin' with your whole crew. It makes this track even better. It has a really good vibe to it.

Driicky Graham - Kool Down* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


7/10


This is a track you play when you need to cool down. Actually not really. It's a track where you will need to turn the heat up. Driicky does it again with another club banger.

Recommended for most playlists.

Big Hud & Beeda Weeda feat. Too Short - Hella Turnt* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


7/10


When Too Short is on a track you know it's gonna be dirty. You also know that it will probably be on a club banger. And it's a pretty good club banger at that. Too Short does his thing for sure.

Recommended for most playlists.

Maejor Ali feat. Juicy J & Justin Bieber - Lolly* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


7/10


Hmmmm. If the hook wasn't so annoying after awhile I would have given it higher. Justin Bieber tryin' to crack onto the hip-hop scene is odd, but it isn't a bad transition as I thought it would be. Still a club banger and Juicy J does his thing again.

Recommended for most playlists.

Kid Ink feat. Chris Brown - Show Me* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


8/10


This is a hot slow banger. I've always liked Kid Ink and he doesn't disappoint here. Teaming up with Chris Brown makes this track even hotter.

Recommended for most playlists.

Crime Mob - Call It Like You Wanna* 
Release Date: Sept. 2013


6/10


I haven't heard from Crime Mob in a minute. This track has the same kind of vibe as Knuck If You Buck. I think it would be good as a mash-up or if you want to start a riot.

Recommended for some playlists.

Rayven Justice feat. Keak Da Sneak & Philthy Rich - Slide Thru* 
Release Date: July 2013


6/10


This track has a pre-funk vibe to it. I enjoy it, but I think it would be better as a mash-up. It definitely has a bay area feel to it.

Recommended for some playlists.
