David Banner & 9th Wonder

I have had this track for a while, but I just saw the video over the weekend. This collaboration deserves real attention.

Jay-Z

There is probably some cool story about why Jay-Z's verse was not on the original song, but I just find it amusing to hear Jay-Z on a song with an autotune hook. That said this is one of my favorite beats from lat year.

Lupe Fiasco feat. Bruno Mars

I love when shit like this comes out. Apparently "Nothing On You was a Bruno Mars song that his people wanted somebody to rap on. Lupe laid it down, but B.O.B.'s people cut those checks a little quicker. I like both versions. Check it out and judge for yourself.

The Roots feat Musiq Soulchild

I ripped this right off of the CD single from my personal stash.

A Personal Classic

I know a lot of people stopped effing with 50 after the trash that was Curtis, but his last record was actually pretty good. This track is may have been the hardest songs of 2009 if it weren't for "Death To My Enemies" which was on this same album. I love this song becuae it is soulful and brutal at the same time.

Classic India Arie

This was India's first single and it was big. Part of me always thought a piece of why this was such a hit was because it used the same break as Akinyele's "Put It In Your Mouth". The break used is "Fun" by Brick.

The Rays

I have the special edition of School Daze on DVD and forgot that it came with the soundtrack as a bonus. I know plenty of people who did not go to an HBCU or pledge who love this song from the movie. Lead vocals on this track are done by Tisha Campbell who depending on how old you are you remember from Martin or My Wife And Kids. The back up vocals are sung by Jasmine Guy and two other girls who wound up not being cast in A Different World or anything else.

Classic Prince & The NPG

Gett Off (single remix, house mix, organ grinder mix, flutestrumental, gangster glam, clockin the jizz mix, extended remix)
If you a really a Prince fan, this is a must download. I ripped this from a CD that I bought 19 years ago.

Jay Electronica

I will be honest I was not checking for this guy for a while because I thought his name was corny as hell, but I got over it. This track is dope.

Hi-Tek feat. Jonell

I found this CD single when I was home for Christmas, this is one of my favorite beats of all time.

Classic Cam'Ron

Classics By O.G.C.

At one point in time you could not tell me s#it about The Boot Camp Clik. When everyone else was on Master P, I was on this.

Classic Busta Rhymes feat. O.D.B.

This song was the first single released for the Big Bang, unfortunately it did not make the album. This is one of my favorite beats of all time.

Classic Rick Ross

Love him or hate him, this song off of his first album went hard.

Classic Gangsta Boo

Before Three Six Mafia was going to the Oscars they had a female member that was actually on the radio more than they were. Gangsta Boo was not really a good rapper but she had a lot of confidence in her delivery, and these songs were some really guilty pleasures of mine.

Classic Shyne

A Personal Classic

Nobody remembers this joint but I used to love it. This was a single off of the Victory album. Randy is singing lead not Michael which is probably another reason people were not feeling it like that. By the time they shot the video Mike had, had enough of holding down his brothers and refused to be in it as did Jermaine.

A Personal Classic

Remember that Summer when everybody blew up except for Slim Thug. Anyway this remix was not on his debut Already Platinum which did not go platinum.

Crucial Conflict

They have a new single out, but who really cares. Despite being as country as a dozen eggs, I used to love this song. On aa side note De La Soul used the same sample used in this song for Millie Pulled A Gun On Santa.

A New Classic

This is a song everyone needs in thier Serato, a great summertime record.

Scott Metalic

Much love goes out to Hitbreaker Scott Matelic for hooking up this anthem.

Classic By Musiq

If you find yourself doing a grownfolks set, you will need this joint.

Slakah The Beatchild

This is the kind of joint that is going to inspire me to do another mixtape. His album Soul Movement Vol. 1 has been available overseas for minute, and it will be released stateside by BBE on May 26th. Don't sleep on this.

Classic Material

A lot of records are based off of this joint. You need this in you collection, trust me.

Classic Material

This is one of those songs that came to define Hip-Hop as an art from. That said it is also from an era before Hip-Hop artists hired stylists.

Classic by Junior

This is the first video I can remember seeing on BET back in the day.
