Fat Joe – So Excited ft. Dre

Joey Crack is no stranger to a hit record, with one of the biggest singles of 2016 (the Remy Ma collab, All The Way Up), he returns for his solo joint, So Excited.

Produced by Miami production duo, Cool & Dre, and featuring the latter, the catchy anthem will sure to bubble, as Joe adds another quality cut to his discography of notable and underrated anthems.

With the classic Dennis Edwards sample, So Excited has that bounce to it, and add the infectious hook, it’s a recipe for a banger. More so I’m pleased for Dre, who has been overlooked for years as an artist in his own right, I’m one of the few still waiting for his 2006 debut (The Trunk) which never materialised. Hopefully this upbeat number helps bring him back, as it certainly maintains Fat Joe as one of the most consistent Hip-Hop hit-makers.

Expect bad bitches and luxury vehicles, with the larger than life cameo from DJ Khaled, and even an appearance from Ms Nikki Baby (of Love and Hip-Hop fame)

Game – Big Money (Produced by Cool & Dre)

Compton’s Game returns with the first single from his forthcoming album RED.

You either love this instantly or it will grow on you, Cool & Dre produce one of the most infectious beats of 2009, providing the West Coast emcee with the waviest of platforms on which Game flows with such composure and consistency, you can hear the experience in his voice. Lyrically, Game has stepped it up, this appears to be the buzz single, accompanied by a good video and expect plenty of rotation. Sampling the lyrics from Clipse – Nightmares, “I got big money..”, Game makes it his own as he attempts to solidify his status as a Hip-Hop heavyweight, personally I really like the song, best experienced loud, this just has that vibe, not much has to be said, it in a way directs you towards the album which is set to be his best effort to date (remember that Documentary is a certified classic).

Game has his eye on the Hip-Hop crown..

Bow Wow – Can I Be Your Man ft. Lil’ Wayne

Since Bow Wow is now Lil’ Wayne’s label mate having recently signed to Cash Money records, these collaborations are expected, I’ve heard three tracks since he signed and this is the best one of all, the first was ok, second was the apparent first single ‘Every Other’ (produced by Cool & Dre), which has Bow sounding more like Drake, with a distinct Drake flow and lyricism, a good effort but the obvious comparisons do shadow the song’s positives, I think it is more so because Bow Wow is talented and the song did not justify that talent. Can I Be Your Man, however is a far better track, with or without the star feature.

The validity of this track cannot be confirmed, none the less it is a good song, a promising insight in what to expect from Bow Wow and Cash Money as a whole. Also, if nobody has realised all ready, this track seems to be about his previous lady, miss Angela Simmons, even if it is not, Bow Wow has taken his experiences in stride of his maturity and put together an honest and ‘real’ record.
