Remember all those rap releases I mentioned? Well, they are approaching which has had my iPod overflowing with good hip-hop. Narrowing those choices down to one tracklist is the tougher battle. I’ve already talked about the stellar new singles from Big Boi and Kid Cudi. I had a tough time limiting the Eminem, Drake and Big Boi offerings to 1 or two songs, but I’m sure you’ll all be picking up those albums soon. If not, up and comers like Donnis, Jay Electronica, Freddie Gibbs and Copywrite pick up the slack. From the Left Coast comes the return of Cali act The Freshmen, West Coast stalwart Xzibit, a potential crossover track from Nipsey Hu$$le and the legendary (yet awful choice in acting roles) Ice Cube. My favorite track this go round might be the remix the the Legendary Roots Crew’s new album, How I Got Over. B.o.B. + The Roots + John Legend? Who’s gonna argue with that?
