Top 3 Tapes of 2008

Slander's Review of the Day

Hopefully yall peeped my first post with the 10 thru 4, if not make sure you read that first. Alright now check it, here's my Top 3 Tapes of 2008!!

#3 - The Recession

Young Jeezy quickly gained respect and street-cred with his first album Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, and further solidified his name with his second album The Inspiration, which went platinum and topped off the Billboard charts. So if you think the dude didn't have a lot to live up to with his third album you'd be crazy. The Recession did just that. Released on September 2nd, The Recession is on pace to outsell The Inspiration is overall sales and met it's mark of topping the charts, giving Jeezy his SECOND number one album of his career. The Recession is quoted by Jeezy as "Thug Motivation on steroids", with some of the truest lyrics he's written so far. The Recession isn't a feature dense album either, which shows Jeezy put a lot more effort into making these songs his own than most artists. Features include Anthony Hamilton, Lil Boosie, Trey Songz, Kanye West (he's featured pretty much everywhere now!), and none other than Nas. You know what, even if the whole album sucked except for one song, that song being My President, this album would still be on my top list. "Yeah, be the realest shit I never wrote, this will be the realest shit you ever quote."

Top 3 Tracks on The Recession

1. My President (ft. Nas)

2. Put On (ft. Kanye West)

3. Vacation

#2 - Tha Carter III (Deluxe Edition)

Tha Carter III is not only Lil Wayne's best selling album but actually the best selling album of 2008 with close to 3 million copies sold. It went double-platinum in only it's first month. Okay, I know what you're thinking. If with all that success, Tha Carter III is #2... then what the hell could be #1?! Chill, I have good reasons behind my madness. But back to the album at hand, Tha Carter III was released on June 10th, with the Deluxe Edition being released later to include the tracks from The Leak and some remixes. I'm including the Deluxe Edition in this strictly because of the track "I'm Me" from The Leak, it'd be my #1 track on the album if it weren't for the fact it wasn't originally on the album haha (no disrespect to A Milli, that is arguably his best single ever). Tha Carter III features Jay-Z, T-Pain, Babyface, Robin Thicke, Bobby Valentino, Static Major, Brisco, Busta Rhymes, Betty Wright, Kanye West, Fabolous, and Juelz Santana. Alright, I don't think I gotta speak much more on Tha Carter III, cause if you haven't copped it last summer then you're not alive; you shouldn't even be reading this right now, cause I don't like you.

Top 3 5 Tracks on Tha Carter III (Deluxe Edition)

1. A Milli

2. I'm Me

3. Lollipop Remix (ft. Static Major & Kanye West)

4. Got Money (ft. T-Pain)

5. Mrs. Officer (ft. Bobby Valentino)

Honorable Mention: Mr. Carter (ft. Jay-Z)

#1 - Paper Trail

Yeah, that's right, T.I. got the #1 spot on my list. Paper Trail is my top album of 2008 and easily the best album of T.I.'s career. Why is that? There are over 16 tracks and over 10 of them are good enough to be released as successful singles. Can you say that about any other tape nowadays? Hell no. Paper Trail was released on September 30th, quickly became the number one album on Billboard 200, and went Platinum in no time. Forget sales and ratings, this album more than lived up to the hype. The motivation that you get from T.I.'s lyrics are unlike anything in the game today, which to me is what hip-hop is all about. Sure I like when T.I. and other artists rap about their swag and what they've done, but when I can get somethin from a track on a personal level that's a big deal. T.I. dishes everything to you real talk with incredible flow and articulation, not to mention with some sick production. Paper Trail features Ludacris, B.o.B, Rihanna, Usher, Swizz Beatz, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, John Legend, and Justin Timberlake.

Top 3 10 Tracks on Paper Trail

How could I not give you 10 for the top tracks, the dude has released SEVEN singles from this tape!

1. No Matter What

2. Whatever You Like

3. Ready for Whatever

4. Dead and Gone (ft. Justin Timberlake)

5. Swagga Like Us (ft. Jay-Z, Kanye West & Lil Wayne)

6. Live Your Life (ft. Rihanna)

7. What Up, What's Haapnin'

8. My Life Your Entertainment (ft. Usher)

9. Slide Show (ft. John Legend)

10. I'm Illy

Nicess Is On His Way

Top 10 Tapes of 2008 - Part 1

Slander's Review of the Day

Hey everybody it's Slander, been gone for a bit but I'm back now, first off for this year I'm bringing you my Top 10 Tapes of 2008. I broadened the spectrum to include some r&b, just because I do consider that to be a part of hip-hop at it's core. But overall most of the tapes are straight hip-hop. For this post I'ma hit you with tapes 10 thru 4 and on Friday with my final Top 3.

#10 - Trilla

Rick Ross' sophomore album with a name that you've probably heard more times than you can remember. Trillllaaa was released March 11th with it's first single "Speedin" featuring none other than the prince of r&b, R Kelly. It's hard for me to give Trilla the nod over Port of Miami, but that's probably cause I get that nostalgic feel for first albums. Overall, Trilla is definitely a solid album, pullin big name artists for features such as T-Pain, Nelly, Brisco, Trey Songz, Mannie Fresh, Weezy, Jeezy, Trick Daddy (damn I'm still listing artists!), Jay-Z, and R Kelly, you know, just to name a few haha! Ross' third album, Deeper Than Rap, is sure to be his best yet so I'ma be on the lookout for that!

Top 3 Tracks on Trilla

1. The Boss (ft. T-Pain)

2. Speedin (ft. R Kelly)

3. Here I Am (ft. Nelly & Avery Storm)

#9 - II Trill

Yes we got another 'trill' album on this list, Bun B's sophomore album, II Trill, released on May 20th (yep it's only been his second as a solo artist). Bun B packs artists just as hard as Ross' Trilla, including Ross himself haha. We also got Sean Kingston, Weezy, David Banner, Lupe, Webbie, Juvenile, Chamillionaire, Pimp C (R.I.P.), Lyfe Jennings (I'm a big fan of that dude), Young Buck, ight cmon you get the idea this album wasn't just thrown together quickly. Bun B is one of the realest dude's in the industry as he always has been with UGK, you just know he's not gonna come out cheap on any track he gets on. The album is 18 songs long which is way above average, with I'd say a great deal of true bangers. Lets get to that top 3!

Top 3 Tracks on II Trill

1. You're Everything (ft. Rick Ross, David Banner, 8Ball & MJG)

2. That's Gangsta (ft. Sean Kingston)

3. Pop It 4 Pimp (ft. Juvenile & Webbie)

#8 - Year of the Gentleman

Alright I don't know if you gonna give me respect for choosin' a Ne-Yo album on a hip-hop blog haha, but you gotta recognize this man's talent for music. The big producer that's behind almost every one of Ne-Yo's top songs, Stargate, comes through HUGE on this album once again. This is Ne-Yo's third album and probably his most successful, showing he's much more than just a come and go r&b/pop artist that you see nowadays. There have been a ton of leaked Ne-Yo songs all summer long leading up to Year of the Gentleman's release of September 16th, most of which didn't make the final cut. I'm not sure why, but I'm hopin' they'll make it to his next release. I'm referring to "Together", "Trouble", and "Let's Just Be". If any of those songs are on some other street tape he released that I'm unaware of, my bad haha.

Top 3 Tracks on Year of the Gentleman

1. Closer

2. Mad

3. Miss Independent

#7 - Theater of the Mind

Ludacris' sixth studio album to date, the dude's still comin this hard!! He's already got Theater of the Mind 2 planned out! Luda planned for this album to be something you'd hear in movie scenes, and while I don't necessarily get that with every track, he's got some excellent stuff on this tape. Theater of the Mind was released on November 24th with it's first single, "One More Drink", which is definitely a hilarious song along the style of somethin Luda would do, but it seems liked it should've been a T-Pain song more than a Luda song. Not that it really matters though. "I Do It for Hip Hop" is easily one of the best TRUE hip-hop songs of 2008. I mean, Luda, Nas and Jay-Z all on a track this good?! Damn. Kills "Swagga Like Us" for the best collaboration of artists on a track if you ask me. Not that Luda wasn't able to get Wayne and T.I. on his other tracks anyway hah! The dude also get's Common, Sean Garrett, Chris Brown, The Game, and Jamie Foxx on this album as well.

Top 3 Tracks on Theater Of The Mind

1. I Do It for Hip Hop (ft. Nas and Jay-Z)

2. Last of a Dying Breed (ft. Lil Wayne)

3. Wish You Would (ft. T.I.)

#6 - Exclusive: The Forever Edition

Hate him or love him, Chris Brown (Breezy? idk bout that..) is easily one of the most talented artists in the music industry today. His first self-entitled album was definitely a good first impression but Exclusive took the world by storm with hit single after hit single. From crazy radio play to constant requests at clubs, Chris Brown definitely hit a home run with just his second album. Exclusive was originally released on November 6th, 2007, but was re-released as The Forever Edition on June 3rd, 2008 which added in (you could guess), "Forever", and a few other songs. The reason I'm including this as a 2008 album besides the addition of Forever, is due to the huge success of his single "With You", which was realized worldwide in 2008. Regardless of release dates and situations, if you haven't already had some Chris Brown in ya music library, you know what to do!

Top 3 Tracks on Exclusive: The Forever Edition

1. Forever

2. With You

3. Kiss Kiss (ft. T-Pain)

#5 - 808s & Heartbreak

If you ain't already know about this album, where have you been?! Despite the fact it was one of the most controversial albums of 2008, due to Kanye West being an ego-maniac and 808s almost being a pop album.. I already wrote a review on this!! This is Kanye's fourth album, taking his music in a completely different direction. Arguably the best or the worst of his four albums, depending on your tastes. I didn't find 808s to be my favorite of Kanye's work, but definitely something to respect. Features include Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi, and Young Jeezy. For the full review, check here.

Top 3 Tracks on 808s & Heartbreak

1. Heartless

2. See You In My Knightmares (ft. Lil Wayne)

3. Love Lockdown

#4 - Mail On Sunday

Honestly, if I was just goin by pure success, Mail On Sunday would probably be the top album of the last decade. Flo Rida couldn't have picked better artists, better producers, or a better time to come out with this album. Mail On Sunday was released on March 16th, long after "Low" had been leaked and gotten the hype for the album building. "Low" pretty much set the standard for club music, "Elevator" matched that and then some (while Low was STILL being played), and months later "In The Ayer" is the new hit single. The rest of the album was pretty much mediocre save for a few other songs (I'm partial to "Roll" with Kingston), but the success of Flo's singles cannot be disregarded. He was pretty much the voice of the club scene for hip-hop in 2008 and I gotta give major props to him for taking that over so easily. Features include T-Pain, Timbaland,, Sean Kingston, Birdman, Lil Wayne, Brisco, Rick Ross, Yung Joc, and Trey Songz. With all those other artists, the whole CD shoulda been a banger... but it wasn't. That's why this is #4 on my list.

Top 3 Tracks on Mail On Sunday

1. Low (ft. T-Pain)

2. Elevator (ft. Timbaland)

3. Roll (ft. Sean Kingston)

Top Tapes of 2008 continues on Friday with the final Top 3 tapes...

Polo - Interview

TooKnown's Interview of the Day

Its takes a big chain of events sometimes to get shit poppin off..but its gets done and poppin'. I got this new affiliated artist that comes from the same side of the country as Slicc Ronson and Torrey-Tee. Be on the look out for this dude. He as well they will be sending me more and more shit for yall to dont GO FARR!!!!!

(TooKnown)1. First off, let's start out with lettin the people know who u are and where ur from??
(Polo)Fa starters, the real name is Napolean Thurman. I got the name Polo from my patna in grade skoo who stated, "Polo is shorter and betta den Napolean." I laughed and ended up running with it! I was born and raised on the Northside of da Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Some say the home of da Gzz and Vicelords. Growing up in the streets of a place called murda mill helped me see wat people really meant by wen dey stated, "ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE!"..It's like a jungle in the city!

2. How did u become a rapper?? Or what influenced you??
Music was like a plan B. I watched and learned from my brother Q going hard in the paint with a flow that is crazy. I would say he was my inspiration. After spittin on a computer to a beat with my brother Q, I decided to take it to another level. My music inspired none other than family first. What ever piece I had finished, the family was first to hear. And taking it to another level is still being erupted. People from all across da map hit me saying how much dey like my music..It feels good to know that I could relate to people throughout different cities and states.

3. Who do you compare yourself most too??
I compare mysef to none otha then mysef!..I dont want to be viewed and compared as someone when I'm a trendsetta...I like to go my own ways..And niggas who know me.. KNOW!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
4. Got any new singles out?? Or mixtapes??
The singles I have flaming the air ways now are; I Do My Thang produced by Torrey T and Get Wit It produced by Trakmatik. I have dropped project after project. And still says, "There's more to come." The latest project from me is called Defined A C4. With tracks produced by Trakmatik, Mr. Cutlass, and none otha den my producer Torrey T. Ripping the mixtape seen will soon be noticed by people all over even the major labels, it's just a matter of time. In the middle of 2009, you should be expecting the next project entitled, "Man in the Mirror."

5. What MCs you mess with out on the West Coast?? What bout the whole country??
There are a bunch of MCs I mess wit it!! Too many to say to be perferctly honest wit you. That goes to say throught out the country also.

6. If you could have one HUGE feat. on your next big single who would it be??
Gunz...Corey Gunz, hands down!!

7. How did you come up with your name??
I didnt come up wit a name on da spot like most dese dudes do! It was gave to me, but by me being in the streets doing my thang from playing ball to selling Cds helped the name erupt bigger than what it was. 
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
8. Is there any BEEF round your parts??
