The “Rap” Up
1. The Game – My Life (featuring LIl Wayne). Great single I’m sure the cd will be hot.
2. Ice Cube new cd Raw Footage – I want him to stop rapping! I really think that he is just putting out music because he can. Ugh…I can’t watch his “family” movies and then listen to him rap about Hood Mentality (track #5). WTF!
3. Flobots – Their cd Fight With Tools came out in April and wasn’t a commercial success ( which is what probably keeps them real), but their song ‘Handlebars’ and ‘Mayday’ are still two of my favorite songs this year. The fact that they rap with a live band and have extremely opinionated hooks give them a Fort Minor feel that is catchy and thought provoking.
