Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt. 7

Massari's new single "Be Easy" is out on promo circuit now. Released on Capital prophet Records this ain't exactly HipHop but a hot fusion of DigiSoul and Reggaeton-/DigiDancehall-influences which is able to gain some commercial success if promoted properly. Vocals are nice 'n easy but as one can guess I'm preferring both instrumental versions included here. Especially the Belly Remix instrumental delivers some cool dry beats for the dancefloor.

Robin Thicke joins forces with Pharell on Star Trak / Interscope for the 12" release of "Wanna Love You Girl" which is a sunny piece of DigiSoul / Urban Music that will have some airplay as well as video rotation if they make up one. Produced by The Neptunes there's quality and tight beats and I think it's better to use the instrumental due to the fact that lyrics are cheese.

One to be really huge is the new Busta Rhymes single "Touch It" on Aftermath / Interscope that'll tear up any club. Swizz Beats on production duty delivers a minimal structure of the heaviest, lowest 808 bassdrum booming on a commercial production plus some sparse but militant beats and monotonous nerve-grinding raps... This is fucking serious business about to blast some bassbins. Heavy.
