Phat 5 Joints of The Week(08-08-05)
#5. MC Burial(Don't Body Yaself) - NaS: This aint no "Ether" as Oliver Wang points out. But isn't it myopic to compare all diss records to "Ether"?
#4. Top 5 (Dead or Alive) - The Emcee : The resigned rap rookie Jin returns under the moniker The Emcee with a tribute to the MC's before him. And for the Jin fanatics out there, he's also followed up this joint with another "Open Invitation", a blatant diss to Jermain Dupri and SunNY.
#3. Playa's Play - Kool G. Rap: Durability seems to be the most challenging feat in Hip Hop today, yet, all-time veteran G.Rap effortlessly achieves relevance by flourishing his flow without losing integrity.
#2. Goldigger - Kanye West - This summer smash signals Kanye's simplistic yet catchy songwriting style. What a great way to feed the ballyhoo for Late Registration slated for an August 23rd release.
#1. Sofa King - DangerDoom: The gender-bending duo of MF Doom and DangerMouse have blessed the music world once again, this time as a collective aptly named DangerDoom. "Sofa King" is off the critically acclaimed Adult Swim-themed album The Mouse and The Mask.
DangerMouse is also working on another collaboration album(Gnarls Barkley) with the soul machine himself, Cee-Lo.
