Ja Rule ft. Mary J Blige – Press On [Video]

This is the Ja Rule that got me into hip-hop all those years ago. That irresistible Ja/Mary J combination over a solemn backdrop. This joint is hella old though (2008) but it seems it will be making an appearance on Ja’s upcoming Rule York.

Ja Rule - Man Is Down


First single off Ja’s Venni Vetti Vecci 2010 album, really not a fan of this kind of repetitive production tbh – it’s a little played out. I don’t think it particularly suits Ja Rule either. You might disagree though so give it a listen by downloading below.

Throwback Thursdays Vol 29


Not only have the past 28 throwbacks helped Heads alike reminisce on old school hip-hop, but arguably more importantly, it has educated the ‘newbies’ amongst us on where the genre has grown (or declined) from and highlighted the artists important in shaping its direction.

The Game & Ja Rule


Always great to hear some new material from Game, as you know what to expect – a great beat, a decent chorus and a good flow.

This surfaced on an unofficial mixtape recently, featuring Ja Rule and produced by Scott Storch. This is a track I see being played heavily in my rotation over the next few weeks, grab it below.

Throwback Thursdays Vol 8


If you worship the ground Jay-Z walks on then walk away now. (No don’t, I’ve got a goodie for you at the end of this review. Consider it a reward for the bashing I’m about to unleash). If, however, you have an open mind to hip-hop and can see past the rap mogul’s disguise then please read on (I’ve dropped loads of goodies throughout this week’s review).

R&B Fridays: Episode 29


The first episode of 2010 brings a nice blend of established and new artists this week, which makes a pleasant change from the recent R&B Friday domination by big names.
