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.

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

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.

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
