"MM..Food" was originally dropped in 2004 off of Rhymesayers Entertainment but has been out of print for quite a while and was a very rare CD. But it has been finally re-released with a DVD included. If you don't know, DOOM wears a mask everywhere he goes in public, he is not photographed without it. He has many aliases that he releases LP's
The legendary, dirty south duo "UGK" has finally dropped a new LP titled "Underground Kings." This is their seventh album, and they are hitting hard as ever in the rap game. The first release under UGK Records is an expected success. Members Bun B and Pimp C are still proving they're true pioneers in the south.
This is their first album
True west coast rap. Who do you think of? You probably think of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Ice Cube, and a few more. But one of the forgotten members is Kurupt. Known as ½ of Tha Dogg Pound, with his partner, Daz Dillinger. Kurupt isn't on the same level as those others mentioned, but is one of those true gangsta rap pioneers in the west. If you
Jeezy is back for his sophomore LP, "The Inspiration", off of Def Jam records and the CTE imprint. Jeezy's lyrics still lack a little cleverness and originality, but he still pulls off a credible CD.
For this CD, he recruited R. Kelly, Timbaland, Keyshia Cole, Slick Pulla, Blood Raw, and T.I. "The Inspiration" isn't as good as Thug
This is Consequence's debut album "Don't Quit Your Day Job!" Of off Columbia, and Kanye West's imprint, GOOD (Getting Out Our Dreams). Cons has been around since the early to mid nineties but never released an album. He is also known as Q-Tip's cousin, the lead rapper in A Tribe Called Quest.

Tha Dogg Pound continue their long, successful career with their new LP "Dogg Chit." The cover and title is reminiscent of their debut together, "Dogg Food," from 1995. Daz and Kurupt have been doing their thing since they made their debut on on Dr. Dre's "The Chronic." Daz has always been a great producer and gets back on that, unlike the
The Chopper City Boys come out with their debut "We Got This", off of Koch Records and the Chopper City imprint. The Boys include Hakim, V.L. Mike, Sniper, and Gar. The best lyricist out of that group would have to be V.L. Mike. He provides some hot verses on this album. Hakim has his moments, but Sniper and Gar need improvement. But this LP sure
Gang Starr was a popular rap group which formed in the year of 1987 and remain around, but album releases how been declared as over. Gang Starr simply consists of Guru and DJ Premier. DJ Premier is one of the best producers out there. Guru is a very talented rapper, with the exception of his slow start earlier in his career. DJ Premier has produced
Nasty Nas is back with his Def Jam debut, "Hip Hop is dead." The last LP released by Nas was "Street's Disciple" back in 2004. But when Nas claims hip-hop is dead, he's talking about people commercializing the game and rap becoming a marketing commodity. Rap has evolved since the 80's and 90's and Nas feels that it has not been for the
This is Clipse's long awaited sophomore LP, Hell Hath, No Fury, taken from Star Trak
records and Re-Up Gang Records. This album has been delayed many times before and has been threatening to surface for around 4

While Lord Willin' is debatably more adept, this new release
"Blue Collar", the highly anticipated debut album release from Chi-town native Rhymefest stems from the attention surrounding Fest when it was made public knowledge that he had been working closely with Kanye West and had contributed greatly to Kanye's previous material. The single "Brand New", featuring Kanye, was the single and brought Fest
This is Busta's first new album in four years and his debut off of Dr. Dre's label Aftermath. Surprisingly, Busta has never sounded so mature with songs like "In the Ghetto", "Been Through The Storm, and "You Can't Hold The Torch." But having said that, the CD is also overloaded with more guests than neccessary. The exceptions to this were
Ice Cube released "Laugh now, Cry later" on June 6th, 06. This is his first CD in 6 years after two disappointing CDs which were "War and Peace vol. 1 & 2" He released it under Lench Mob once again.
Here is a breakdown of some of the individual songs:
Why We Thugs - Lead off single from the album which shows a maturing Cube emerging and
With the release of this greatest hits album, entitled Curtain Call, it now appears likely that Eminem's time for full time album recordings has come to an end. This album's intention is to sum up Em's career thus far and remind everyone of the long list of hits that he has produced. Of course, many hits have been discluded from the album, but
Kanye West is back, following his previous album 'College Dropout', which was a revolutionary album ranked highly and one of the most highly acclaimed and successfull of 2004.
'Late Registration' carried a lot of expectation, but was never likely to live up to the standard of his debut release. Having said that, it does come extremely close
