My favorite tune: That’s My Bitch

Brow-raisingly tame and predictable for the two huge godfathers of hip-hop, with their all-star guest artists, with their even bigger than big reputations combined. That’s My Bitch and Murder to Excellence are good, but the rest are just la-dee-da mediocre. Borrowing Otis Redding for a three-minute below par rap version? What is happening to these guys? Trying too hard to be extravagant and classy maybe? Sitting too long in the comfort of your throne obviously can be quite harmful for creativity and musical wizardry. But no worry, fans and critics are going to adore it anyway….

My Rating: 5/10
