Soundbites: Pimp C + Brooke Valentine, Lauryn Hill + Method Man
Pimp C + Brooke Valentine - Dope Girl
With Pimp's album nearing its release date, it's only right that he got down on his grizzy like this. But, is this what we did all that "Free Pimp C" chant for? And, sorry Pimp, Brooke is not the Princess of the South. Hillary Duff is still around...just kidding y'all. A few cats that check The Rap Up actually know where I live, and banana peels in my driveway is never a good thing.
Method Man + Lauryn Hill - Things They Say
You can shit on Lauryn's MTV Unplugged disc all you want, but, guess what? It's slowly becoming one of the most sampled hip-hop CD's in history (even though I'm aware that EPMD's first LP is a hot contender for that title as well). This is Method Man's 'hate' letter to mudslingers, and you'd swear L'Boogie was in the studio with him on this one.
Cut Chemist - The Garden (whatchu mean you don't remember 'em?! Jurassic 5...hello?)
DJ Khaled ft. Jadakiss & Beanie Sigel - It's A Problem (warning: DJ shamelessly promotes his album halfway into the track!)
