What We Do – Freeway ft. Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel

Gotta kill witnesses cause Free beards stickin out

Three of the ROC’s finest go extremely hard on this classic Freeway track from the Philadelphia Freeway album in 2002.  The beat was crafted by Just Blaze at a time when Bleezy could do no wrong.  Unfortunately because Universal Music Group is wack and won’t let youtube embed the actual video for this song you’ll have to settle for the audio.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/607824846dd21bd7/

Jay-Z – Blueprint 3

I been reading and hearing a lot of Jay dropping the “Blueprint 3” album, which is exciting news. On the other hand I have been hearing this news for the past couple months, even Jay himself says he has no time restraints which is a double edged sword. 

With no time restraints one does not have to worry about deadlines and can work on there own leisure, the other side is maybe he doesn’t have anything left and is struggling to produce a masterpiece which everyone expects.  

I am looking forward to the Blueprint 3 with Mr. West’s production but I am not waiting a year to hear. 

Ghostface feat. Beanie Sigel and Styles P – The Barrel Brothers

doe-rehab

The Big Doe Rehab was a very good album from Ghost which produced a lot of solid bangers. One track that I bumped on the regular was “Barrel Brothers” feat Beanie Sigel. The beat is rugged and the video is on that 1995 gangsta shit which really brings me back. This video features Styles P with a quick verse and just adds to the already sick track.

 

Jay-z – Bring It On

This track will go down in history as one of the classics, Jay- Z’s “Bring it On” off his debut Reasonable Doubt LP was no joke! I mean you got Primo on the beat Joey on the hook, c’mon bee! Remember when Jay was really that nigga? Well if you forgot then peep this, before he started falling into that thing he is today. My opinion Jaz rips the fuck out of this but all mc’s brought there A game, from Sauce starting it to Jay holding it and Jaz finishing it, this is Hip-Hop at its finest.
