The Nail In the Coffin

Based on the first week numbers for Guerilla City (around 46,000), its safe to say Guerilla Black will fade into the wackness that spawned him in no time. As a precautionary measure, however, heres a link that undeniably exposes him as a Biggie imitator and a fraud whose CD isnt worth the plastic its shrinkwrapped in.

Album Reviews, News, and Heaterz

My enthusiasm for the title track notwithstanding, The Beautiful Struggle is trash. Hit up Mocash or Quarterwit for a more indepth analysis. I haven't seen fan backlash like this since Nastradamus dropped.

Byron Crawford gives the most accurate album review of the year. As expected, the Guerilla Black album is horrible. Not ordinary record label gimmicky horrible, but blasphemously headache inducing horrible.

The winner of this weekend's MC battle at the Mixshow Power Summit was Jin. He defeated Wrekognize, Shellz, and Jae Millz for the cash prize (50 grand) and a new car. You can hear the battle for yourself here (right click/save save as,mp3).

Quick question: Is Black owned? What about

"Higher" by Game (right click/save as,mp3)

Strictly Business,Necessary, and Dime Time

Strictly Business, where I post on the business dealings in hip hop:
For better or worse, the use of hip hop as a marketing tool is growing; leading the charge is P. Diddy-beatdown recipient Steve Stoute.

Necessary, where I highlight some things I need in my life:
The new Nintendo handheld and
The Sony Playstation Portable

Dime Time is self explanatory:
Dayana Jamine and
Apolonia Mack
