Rock City & Don Cannon :: P.T.F.A.O.: The Saga Continues


[Alright, long story short. Akon signed these duo, known as Rock Star, to a deal on his Konvict Label. Rock Star then went in the studio and finished a album for the world to hear. Problem is Interscope is pushing back on the release for whatever reasons, so they made a movement to the label called P.T.F.A.O. ("Put The Fucking Album Out," for short). Instead of whining and complaing, Rock Star linked up with Don Cannon to drop some free mixes to keep the fans satisfied until the label does put the effing album out.]

Did Roxanne Shante Perpetrate a Fraud?


It gives me no pleasure to put one of my favorite female emcees out there as perpetratin' a fraud, but the facts are undeniable. Oliver 'O-Dub' Wang brought to my attention this article from Slate.com, which busts out "Doctor" Roxanne Shante, Ph.D as being full of it. Previous Shante news stories had proudly proclaimed how she got one over on Warner Music and forced them to pay for her college degree as previously agreed to contractually. Unfortunately with just a few minutes of investigation by Slate writer Ben Sheffner, the whole story proved in the words of MC Lyte to be paper thin. No such contract ever existed, no license for her to practice as a doctor exists in the state of New York, and no degree was ever issued to her by Cornell. In fact the only school she attended, Marymount Manhattan College, says she dropped out after just four months. In other words, her entire story is bupkis. If she ever decides to go to college FOR REAL, RapReviews.com will proudly stand behind her, but she can't claim she's already earned a degree without putting in the work.

Mr. J Medeiros - "Holding On" (Neosonic Remix)


I just did this remix for my friend and former labelmate, Mr. J Medeiros (formerly of The Procussions). It features some amazing vocals by a singer named Tara Ellis who also sang the hook on one of my fav Pros tracks, "I'll Fly". Mr. J & myself are currently discussing the possibility of trying to round up some of the ex-Rawkus acts and do a tour! I'll let you know what happens from that soon, but in the meantime, check the remix and spread the word... and music!

Soulja Boy - Sour (Single)


Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Soulja Boy
Title: Sour
Label: Stacks on Deck Ent.

Since this is my day to review obnoxious promotional singles, here's the latest one from Soulja Boy glorifying his own excess. "Told that bitch to hit the sour/Now she's smellin like a flower/Then we hopped up in the shower/Beat it up from the back my nigga." Fantastic. As Soulja Boy tracks go, the whistling melody isn't that bad, but hearing this kid brag about how much marijuana he smokes ("stupid stupid sour") and how great he is ("I be so damn fucking fly") just proves he hasn't developed his rhyme writing or even gotten beyond showing off how young, dumb and full of cum he is. Not like I really expected him to, but still. "I'm so motherfuckin rich/Don't call my fuckin phone." Don't worry about it. You ain't got nothin' to say.

Plies - Chef (Single)


Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Plies
Title: Chef
Label: Slip-n-Slide Records

Dunlap Exclusive is ready to help Plies cook, and "even though he ain't go to school for it" he's "a motherfuckin chef." What's he cooking? A chicken. What's he making it with? Baking soda. Do you get what the song's about? Then I don't need to explain any further. This seems to be my week to review singles and album with rappers bragging about how good their skills are in the illicit trades, from the kitchen to the streets. Sometimes even real fried chicken needs a little more spicy seasoning to make it worth eating. Dunlap Exclusive tries, but he can't do it without Plies. Since Plies is a better rapper than the average, that's reason enough for me to expect more from him than these paint by the numbers lyrics. "Chef" won't offend his fans but it won't garner him any new ones either.

Brisco - Iller (Single)


Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Brisco
Title: Iller
Label: Poe Boy/Cash Money Records

"See a pussy, slap a pussy nigga/Where I'm from we sell dope until they come get us/Fresh off the porch, lil' league, that's a eightball." So what's the AAA level Brisco? "I can whip a slab to a boulder/Any nigga stylin on the clique, I expose him." Okay, I got you. You're signed to the majors already though, so you're beyond having to slang off the porch OR whip the work until it turns white. If you're that heavy in the drug game, you should have minor league players underneath you doing the dirt, but if you're even heavier in the music game you shouldn't need to be illicit at all. Like other rappers of late from Florida though who play up their pharmaceutical credentials (think Rick Ross) it's all about sounding convincing no matter how little or how much work you ever pushed (if any). The most convincing thing here is the beat, but I have no production credits and can find none - all I know is I got this promo from a distributor named "Papa Smirf." It's a decent enough Brisco song, but it's nothing special.

Kobi Onyame f/ Sway - He Said, She Said (Single)


Review by Emanuel Wallace

Artist: Kobi Onyame f/ Sway
Title: He Said, She Said
Label: Haatsville Records

Hip hop has long been a worldwide phenomenon, and Ghanian born emcee, Kobi Onyame is out to create some waves with the first single off his upcoming album, "Green Green Grasses". Fresh off of his performance at this year's Glastonbury Music Festival, Kobi is aiming for even more exposure with "He Said, She Said". The song features Sway DaSafo, and as one would expect upon seeing the song title, it's a joint about relationship issues. There's not much else to relatively safe single, but the beat is fairly catchy. It actually sounds a lot like the production stylings of Akon. With that said, the easily accesible track seems destined to garner more than its fair amount of airplay on Ghanaian and UK radio.
