There was a slight drought in rap/hip-hop from Feb. to early March, but I finally gathered enough material for a decent mixtape. More acts from the past seem to be trying to reclaim glory from yesteryear (or they need some more pay checks). Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony somehow got all the members in the same area code to make a new track (even Flesh’n Bone), Raekwon collected Ghostface and Method Man for some vintage Wu Tang (“Wu Ooh”), and Busta does his best “Live Your Life” impression ( ft T.I.).
Aside from the veterans, the newcomers are well represented. I’m not sure who Nipsey Hussle is, but somehow he got a posthumous 2Pac verse. Kyle Lucas gets introspective (“Breathing In A Smoggy City”), B.o.B. introduces his new moniker, Bobby Rae (“Generation Lost) and Playboy Tre pretty much steals the show on 2 tracks (“We Are The Robots” and “Goodbye America”).
Leave comments below. Do it.
