Rihanna and Jay – Umberella

March 29, 2007

Despite the fact that the Weatherman said that someones gonna Make It Rain, Rihanna has decided to put a stop to it with her new single Umbrella featuring Jay-Z.
…wow that was corny…
Remember when big H-O used to spit really, really good all the time? Those were the days.
Anyway, I never really listened to Rihanna but on this song she does a damn good job. I like it.

Redman – Red Gone Wild (Review)

March 26, 2007

YOU ARE VIEWING OUR OLD BLOG. WE HAVE MOVED TO A NEW SERVER. PLEASE GO TO ILLROOTS.COM IN THE FUTURE. THANK YOU.


Redman is back at it again with his sixth solo effort Red Gone Wild. Said to be his first of two releases this year, the other being the riskily titled Muddy Waters II.

The good, I really did like how he started things out putting Bak Inda Buildin, Put it Down and Gimmie one lined back to back. He kind of accomplished the same type of flow with Walk in Gutta, Wutchoogonnado and Diz Iz Brick City. Thats basically the main factor in what did it for me for this album, the flow.

The bad, There are about four songs that should of never been heard past the ears of the Def Jam staff and there unlucky mail boy (Freestyle Freestyle, Blow Treez, Pimp Nutz and Sumtn’ 4 Urrbody). I’m also not to fond of the Gilla House rappers. Which coincidentally are featured on 3 of the 4 tracks that I said were awful. Another thing that was lackluster at times was the production, but oddly sometimes it was equally phenomenal, so I don’t think I have to stress on that to much.

The verdict, Despite the fact that the bad paragraph is longer then the good, this album was quite enjoyable and is in my opinion his best album since Muddy Waters. lets hope we can say the same for Muddy Waters II.
