by Aries Spears: This has to be one of my all time favorite freestyles! I saw this video a few years ago and I continue to watch it randomly when I want a good laugh. Or, I show people this video when I want them to trip off Spears’ ability to impersonate rappers. He sounds JUST LIKE them. If you listen to the words without seeing the video you would believe that the vocals were from LL, Snoop, DMX, and Jay, but I suggest seeing the video to believe it. The impersonation of Jay’s laugh is remarkable. The DJ is heard saying “Dude, that was awesome!” prior to the video ending. I concur!

by DMX ft. Seal: The Game had a recent interview that ended with him crying as he detailed his feelings about the current state of hip-hop. He said he felt like he belonged in hip-hop during the genre’s earlier days when artists like Public Enemy, N.W.A. and Queen Latifah rapped about causes and weren’t afraid to be vocal….DMX and Seal must have heard his request and produced the song I Wish. The song details things that both individuals would like to change in their lives and change in America. Personally, I like the track as a first single and I applaud the artists’ attempt to make a noteworthy song. I felt that way until I heard the line “I am wishing Bill Clinton would return, and I don’t care, let him get his nuts sucked through the whole term.” What is it with nuts these days? Jesse Jackson is trying to cut off Barack’s and then for Bill’s to be mentioned in this song. Is it possible to make a great song without being offensive?
