Eminem is on a torrid path with his latest album “Recovery“. Not only has he been nominated for 8 VMA’s, and a number 1 album for weeks, Eminem set the YouTube record for ‘Love the Way You Lie (ft. Rihanna)‘ with the most views in 24 hours. The video totaled over 6.6 million hits! Amazing.
In the upcoming issue of The Source, it appears as if Bun B will receive 5 mics. Some of the notable titles reviewed that did not receive 5 mics are: Eminem – Recovery, Rick Ross – Teflon Don, Big Boi – Sir Lucious Left Foot – The Son of Chico Dusty, Fat Joe – The Darkside Vol.1 , Drake – Thank Me Later , and The Roots – How I Got Over
I must say that I have heard all of those albums except Fat Joe (putting it on right now) and other that says a lot for Bun B. You know, Bun has been putting it down for years. He is most notably known as a member of UGK and has always been my favorite of the two. Pimp C received all of the attention for the most part mainly because of his voice but Bun, lyrically, could flat out go. What Iz Hip Hop congratulates Bun B for his accomplishment receive the elusive 5 Mic stamp from The Source.
Drake discusses regrets from his Platinum debut album “Thank Me Later”.
“It was meant not just for the album, but really just looking back at life,” Bun said. “Like, you never know how long you’re gonna be here. I plan on being here for a long while, but I don’t have a final say on that sh–. So with that being said, to sum up everything up to this point, we had some ups and some downs, we had some real rough times. But we’re still here, and I don’t think I would really change anything at this point, because it really has been a pleasure doing what I do and being out there with the people. I just wanna continue with it. I ain’t done with it. But in case I don’t get to say anything else beyond this point, I just wanna let the people know it’s been a pleasure.” – MTV
So today I listened to Jaheim’s new album set to drop 2/9/2010. First question I had was why would they drop this album the same day as Sade. Clueless. Nevertheless, this is a great album and one worth buying. All Jaheim fans will love this album as he has laced it with solid cuts from top to bottom. There are not a lot of track on the album which tells me that he focused on quality more than quantity and it shows. I guess the new look without the braids leads to a fresh, great sounding product for you to add to your collection. Cop it. It’s WIHH Approved!
