The year has come to an end, and what better way to end it with a classic song from Minnie Riperton!

Yeah I said it…..Exhibit A/C, Exhibit A or C, Exhibit A & C….top 100 Hip Hop song(s) of all time!!!!!!!
Bonus: I had this original Exhibit A track for quite some time that has a harder bass line than the Exhibit A track that is becoming popular, I think this version is a lot harder!….Let me know what yo think?
It’s good to see musician, singer, & songwriter Erick Richardson on his grind. His songs are creative and you can’t help but to be pulled in by the content of his music. This is the first single off his mixtape “Singing In The Shower”, which will be available on Valentine’s Day. Check out the links for more info and music from E. Rich!

It’s good too see that X-Cash Money Millionaire Boo is still on his grind. He links up with another X-CMM Curren$y The Hot Spitta for a dope track! That Z28 in the background is sick!!!!!!
One my favorite Southern Rappers of All-Time. I remember growing up as a youth in Mound Bayou Mississippi, riding bikes with my best friend James M. and his older brothers and friends would be in front of the house washing their cars bumping the album ‘Too Hard Too Swallow”. I would always ask them what they were listening to and they would say I was too young to listen to that type of music. At the time they were right! I came to find out later in my youth that it was UGK (Bun-B & Pimp C). I have followed the group & solo projects ever since. The two things that I remember most about Pimp C, was the story of how he didn’t want to do the track with Jay-Z -Big Pimpin. Pimp C was worried about UGK losing their Underground sound and credibility by crossing over to mainstream and being all over BET & MTV. Well he was wrong because no matter how many plays the video got on MTV and BET. Pimp C of UGK always keep the music 100. Also if you have never been to Houston, Texas has I have yet to go…. listening to Wood Wheel made you feel like you were right there riding a slab, with a fif’ wheel, and candy paint dripping. Little do some of his fans know that Pimp C produced a lot tracks for UGK using original instruments and also sang on a handful of them too. When music today gets boring and unoriginal I can always bump some UGK to keep me grounded!
Adult Swim has been putting out some dope music releases, including Dangermouse x DOOM’s classic DangerDOOM LP, and the Stones Throw collaborations Chrome Children. (I am still trying to find that instrumental on Adult Swim during Boondocks commercials). The newest offering does not disappoint and is some of the most abstract and inventive electronic/hip hop producers remixing Atlanta rap. Young Jeezy remixed by El-P. Shawty Lo remixed by Prefuse 73. Gucci remixed by Flying Lotus and a bunch other dope ATL tracks remixed. My favorite remixed track is the Gucci Mane & OJ The Juiceman – Goodnight junt! (Track 15)
