2001’s top 10 albums (By DJ MF)
2001 will be a year remembered for a slew of really bad releases that basically followed the pop-rap formula set up by Ja Rule (I’m a thug who just wants love) that were countered brilliantly by a select few releases near the end of the year that redeemed the 2 double 01.
2001’s top 25 tracks (by DJ MF)
The yearly tradition continues. Those lucky enough to have tuned in to my radio show, online, or via an old fashioned stereo, got to hear all of these.
Those who didn’t?
Well, y’all know you suck.

Redman And Method Man – How High Part 2 (Def Jam)
The Blunt Brothers return with a single to promote their forthcoming movie. An incredibly bouncy cut, which features a familiar Toni Braxton sample on the chorus. A strong verse from Meth is overshadowed by an INCREDIBLE verse from Redman, who totally dismantles the microphone. You need this one.
RATING: 8 / 10
MTV2/Vibe Magazine’s “Sisters for Hiphop & Soul Tour” (by Mochaspresso)
VH-1 Behind the music (by Nycestylez)
**following a post on the newsgroup about Vanilla Ice’s birthday, (of all things), Miss Nycestylez came up with the following concept**
Eh, I hear he’s trying to be rock n roll now. He was on the air talkin’ about how all that stuff that he did back then was just him being a puppet for the record label.

Those Who Write Columns and Those Who Read Them”

Everything is lookin peaceful

The Undefined – Weapon Of Choice / The Arrival (see ughh.com)
The Undefined are a crew out of Jacksonville, FL and have been together for over 5 years. The chemistry and cohesiveness show here, as each emcee flows lovely on the Wu-esque ‘Weapon Of Choice’. Its plain to see that a lot of time has been spent on this – the production is ill, and Slicemaster and Mal Demolish both dismantle the mic. The flip side, ‘The Arrival’ is more like a freestyle, right down to the beatbox effects. Again the flows are on point, but I’m definitely feeling the A-side more.
RATING: 6.5 / 10
