50 CENT - Before I Self Destruct (2009)

Fiddys back and he is droppin it like its hot. This is fourth studio album by 50 Cent containing 16 jaw droppin bombs, with blazin rhymes and dope beats (well at least some of them). Honestly i am not really a big fan of Fifty. A good hip hop song for me usually an amalgamation of good story telling, like Eminem and crazy catchy riffs on the spinners and not to forget catchy sing along choruses as a bonus. Well, for the radios, they usually go for the beats. No matter if you are a good rapper or not, if your got ill beats, they gon play you.

Does this album got what it takes? I dont know. "Psycho" was a good collabo track between 50 and Eminem with Dre behind studio glass. "Death To My Enemy" is another Dre produced song, gangsta? yes. memorable? No. "OK You're Right" is OK. The beat is a thumbs up. "Baby By Me" featuring Ne-yo is the only track that I give a two thumbs up. Good beat, the rhyme is ok and the catchy chorus courtecy of Ne-yo. A radio favorite indeed. Get this one if you like Fiddy.

Oh, the cover is ugly. What is he trying to prove? Self destruction in the form of a volcanic face? Or is he suffering from some sort of a skin disease complete with all the gangrenous cuts and all? Yuck.



SEAN KINGSTON - Tomorrow (2009)

The big guy's second album. All the girls lovin it. I like the title track "Tomorrow". All you need in a song is catchy choruses and this song got that catchy chorus line that will easily register to your ears. "Face Drop" is a cute track and a teeny bopperish party track. Another catchy chorus here. "Wrap You Around" is also a radio winner. Man, this album got a lot of hot tracks. Lucky Kingston that he got one heck of writers and producers. This album will be another chart topper. Not my cup of tea but i still recommend this one for the radio friendliness. Flabby abs, chubby cheeks, rich and girls digs you. What more do you want, damn it!



MARQUES HOUSTON - Mr.Houston (2009)

This is his fourth studio album, a follow up to his 2007 Veteran album. First of all, i think Houston got a very extraordinary tone. Maybe the album is worth checkin out after all. Maybe. "Stranger" is a mid tempo song which is quite ok. "Restaurent" is kinda ok too although the anchor melody is kinda flat and boring. "Date" is bumpy but again, i hate autotunes. Then I realized that most of the songs here are kinda mediocre and flat. OK but a bit too boring for me. You can safely skip this one. Hey Houston trying challenge your vocals lah a bit more.



BOYZ II MEN - Love (2009)

Do i need to review this? Do I? Enjoy! There is also a rumour that they will be recording an anniversary album that will be released in 2011. With all 4 original members!



PRETTY RICKY - Pretty Ricky (2009)

This is the third and latest studio album by Pretty Ricky. I got the chance to listen to the first single, "Say A Command" and I think that the song is pretty forgettable. Maybe due to the usage of the bloody autotune which I dont really like. Well, for me if you wanna cheat your listeners, you better make sure that the music is damn good which was not the really the case here. Their version of "Pretty Brown Eyes" aint that impressive either. Listenable but thats it. This is the album with the new member who goes by the name of Lingerie. haha. Mark P would be laughing his ass off. Well, i was never a PR fan thus this is not my cup of tea.
