Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt. 15

Mary J Blige's new single “Enough Cryin” is out now via Geffen Records. Supported by Brook-Lyn – who the fuck is and why is it that ppl start to name theirselves after their hood ? – on vocals our well known drama-queen deals with another love story on top of quality DigiSoul beats that’ll bump right into young girls hearts with their deep 808 boom. For all those not into heavy vocal abuse there’s an instrumental version featured here which might well fit on yr next mixtape. Not essential but still proper.

Puerto Rico-based project Pachanga of core members J Del Alma & Rico Caliente have recently covered Maxi Priest’s 1990 hit “Close To You”. 4 versions to be found on the whitelabel which is on promo circuit now, which is not that bad compared to more than 90% of all cover versions to be found on the music market these days but still a bit disappointing to those who still remember the original track. Check Tigerstyle’s Desi-flavored rework on B1 when looking out for the best mix on this 12”.

Fergie’s “London Bridge” on A&M Records is the first single taken out of her upcoming album “The Dutchess” which is to be released on September 19th. The 12” sounds likes a mixture of Missy Elliott and a slow motion version of Teairra Mari’s “No Daddy” of last year and due to this she’s gonna be one female MC to keep an open eye on this autumn.
