Timbaland f. SoShy - "Morning After Dark"
Tim's vocals on this joint are a tad obnoxious but I can dig it. However, I'm still split on SoShy (terrible name by the way). Her voice fits within the context of this track but I feel Missy Elliot or Nelly Furtado would've been a better choice. On another note, Wesley Snipes needs to come back, get his taxes squared away, and capitalize on this vampire craze.

Craig Bass - "Blue Sky" f. Future
Craig Bass - "Inspirational" f. Saint
Virginia Beach's own Craig Bass has been pumping out a stready stream of quality music this year and this EP is no different.

IMMERSION HEATER - made from razor blades; found in a cell in ‘Santa Fu’ jail in Hamburg, Germany. Jailbirds use these tools to distil alcoholic beverages forbidden in prisons. Your typical inmate’s moonshine still includes a plastic can containing fermented fruit mash or juice, an immersion coil of some sort, a rubber hose, and a plastic receptacle for the booze.
WHIP - with razor blades. The grisly weapon was found around 1996 in ‘Santa Fu’ jail in Hamburg, Germany, in the cell of a drug addicted inmate after his failed attempt to extort a higher Methadone ration by threatening a female prison officer with a knife.
SHOTGUN - made from iron bedposts; charge made of pieces of lead from curtain tape and match-heads, to be ignited by AA batteries and a broken light bulb. On May 21, 1984 two inmates of a prison in Celle, Germany, took a jailer as a hostage, showed off their fire power by letting go at a pane of bullet-proof glass, and escaped by car.
About that jail thing? I think I'll pass, especially in Germany.

This shit right here? This shit right here (© Katt Williams) would've sounded right at home on either of their last two records and that's a good thing. Between the hook and the beat, Chad and Skateboard P crafted something nasty for Killa Cam and the Brothers Thorton to go off on. Three weeks and counting, Til The Casket Drops in stores December 8, 2009.

Clipse - "Popular Demand" f. Cam'ron
The flyers's kind of iffy but then again, expecting two rappers, who are brilliant at penning double entendres and metaphors about pitching that powder, to be politically correct is a bit much I think. Pip pip.

DJ Khalil breaks down the production process for The Clipse' first single, "Kinda Like a Big Deal." It's pretty slick how they got the "vocal sample." As you can see, Khalil is a monster. Keep an eye out for his beat tape and his group project with Chace Infinite.
