Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt. 11

Yes, we all know that Nelly Furtado ain't HipHop at all, but as her new 12" "No Hay Igual" on Geffen Records is floating on a kinda Reggaeton-vibe which is to be dealt as Urban Music anyway it fits right into this column. Beatmaster Timbaland on production duties delivers a sparse, percussive and tribal-influenced beat here which is about to keep dancefloors hot.

Christina Milian teams up with rapper Young Jeezy for her new single "Say I" on Island Records these days which is on promo circuit now. Expect an epic piece of R'n'B/Digisoul with a bit of drama inside - won't be surprised if this is gonna be picked up for soundtrack use soon. Nice one.

Redman's new 12" named "Rush Da Security" is to be released on Def Jam Recordings these days. Once again he proves that he still knows how to rock dancefloors - beats are bouncy and anthemic featuring a massive hookline accompanied by sing-a-long lyrics that stick in the consumers ears like an earwig. File under: hit!
