Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt. 4

The Black Eyed Peas' new single "My Humps" is out on AM Records now. Forget about the vocal version as it is a totally bullshit imitation of Missy Elliott, but watch out for the instrumental cut which is a pleasure for all lovers of pure breakdance music. HipHop meets Electro once again and back we are where it all began...

David Banner is coming with a new 12" as well on SRC Records named "Play" exploring the same kind of area as 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" did a while ago. Cool stripped down to the bone beats plus hypnotizing and sex orientated vocals - very minimalistic, no additional instruments used apart from a few bleepy synth tones but this is more than enough to create a hormone driven athmosphere, even if you leave out the lyrics as the also featured instrumental does. "Ain't Got Nothing" on the flip sounds familiar to me but I ain't got a clue where I came across this before. Massive potential for mainstream success as this tune is anthemic.

The funniest HipHop record throughout the last weeks I received from a friend of mine without any comment. Just a whitelabel with the words "Monstersymbiose" and "Breakyuleg" as matrix information and eleven tracks on it, mashing up various German HipHop acapellas with other instrumentals from that genre. "Schwule Mädchen" by Fettes Brot meets MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This", "Türlich Türlich, Sicher Digger" by Das Bo is featured as well as old Dynamite Deluxe vocals, Boulevard Bou and Luniz "I Got 5 On It" instrumental plus many more. Bootleg business - get it quick.
