Love Is A Battlefield...

Finally back again with another tracklist.. I haven't spent alot of time in front of the computer for a while, hence the lack of posting. After two album posts, which I hope some of you enjoyed it's time for another tracklist. This is part three of the iAUDIO playlist. Random mix of tracks this time too. Some new some old.. As usual.

I any of you got some opinions or requests, feel free to let me know.. post a comment in the c-box or send me a e-mail... some feedback. nuff said, traklist:

Part Three:


1. Little Bruce - Thizz Wid It feat. Dubee & Lil' Italy

This is from a Little Bruce mixtape from last year (or was it this year??). I put a couple of tracks from that tape on my mp3 to give them a listen. I remember liking a couple of tracks. This one, not so much.. I would take it off the tracklist if I hadn't already made the link, yeah I'm lazy don't hate... Honestly, it's not terrible so give it a chance, some of you might like it.. Don't know those other dudes or the producer...

2. Lord Finesse - Real Talk feat. Grand Puba

This is how hip hop is supposed to sound. Nothing revolutionary, but you get what you wan't from these legends. One of my favourite tracks from last year. Topic, as usual: using metaphores to describe their own greatness...

3. Devin The Dude - What A Job feat. Snoop Dogg & Andre 3000

We work late we some vampires, gathering round the beat like a camp fire. Andre Benjamin really kills it on this one, so does Devin and even Snoop proves why he's a legend... One of the best songs from this year... J Prince production.

4. Murs - Slob My Knob

Hehe.. Yeah, this track is hilarious. One of the things I like best about Murs is the fact that I agree with him in so many subjects, mostly about women. Atleast it sounds so right when he explains his point of views...

5. Ghostface Killah - Sun God feat. Sun God

From his second album of 2006, More Fish. Sun God is Ghosts 18 year old son. The kid really holds it down and shows he isn't on the record just cause who's son he is... My favourite track from that cd, which was one of the better from last year..

6. Grap Luva - Trackrunners feat. J-Live & some other dude

I already posted this track, in the first post i think... It's good enough too be heard again! If anyone knows who's that other dude is post a comment and let me know. I really enjoy most of Grap Luvas work, hopefully we'll see more of him within soon....

7. Hi Tek - Josephine feat. Willie Cottrell Band, Ghostface & Pretty Ugly

Speaking about that fine girl from your block who went for the fast dollar selling her body. That will probaly not happend to any of my child friends, so I can't really relate. Dosn't matter tough, it's a great song and I enjoy it. Ghostface was on fire last year and that Pretty Ugly dude is pretty good too...

8. Juggaknots - Liar Liar feat. Wordsworth

Last year Juggaknots came back with their second album ever, 10 years after dropping the classic Clear Blue Skies. And they didn't disapoint anyone. It feels like it dropped this year because I didn't give a listen till februar or something, and if i would have dropped 2007 it would have been the best release in my book. Alright maybe not better than the Blue Scholars disc but still great...

9. Z-Ro - In The South

Don't even remember which disc this is from, and I'm having problems finding out since it poorly taged (just track 7). It's a great song, not the best quality. A typical Z-Ro song really, got that depressed blues feeling to it and the Houston sound is all over it. Some other guy, Big Pokey possibly is on this track too..

10. Sean Price - P Body

One of my favourite Sean Price tracks ever. The lead track from his 2007 album. It's really banging. 9th Wonder produced this one.

11. Papoose - Love Is A Battlefield

From some of his mixtape, there's like 50 of them and I really don't remember which this is from. Pretty sure it's from 2006 tough.. It says Kay Slay produced it. I kinda like this sample, from some possibly famous 80's song. He talks about his love to the rap game, drinking cristal and getting money. Pretty meaningless, but bangin..

12. Papoose - To The Right

A remake of that Beyonce track To The Left. I don't remember how good the real song was, don't care.. This is off the hook, for real. Too bad it's so short, only 1:57. And too bad he pretty much talks about nothing, which means you get tired of it after a couple of listens. Says some guy named Stargate produced it.

13. Brotha Lynch Hung - Walkin' 2 My Funeral feat. T.M. Shades & Mia Bruce

Someone in some blog or something said Brotha Lync Hung was a guy to check for if you wanted some hell praising gangsta tunes in your life. And why wouldn't I want that? Gave this record a couple of listens and this song really did it for me. Deep gangsta shit. I think Mia Bruce is the lady who sings the hook. From 1996 or something...

14. Thirstin Howl III - I Wanna Watch

This song is crazy. Hilarious and sick. Brooklyn native Thirstin often finds these easily forgotten topics everybody's really likes hearing rap songs about but don't know it until he makes the song.. Who dosn't wanna watch?

15. Papoose - Too Hot feat. Busta Rhymes

Oh. They both kill it. Busta really kills it. Mixtape track from last year.. I'm really looking forward to the Papoose album, whenever it will drop...

16. AZ - The Format

Primo is back. Banger. AZ been around for a while know. He came back late last year with his ablum The Format. A record in which the title track actaully is the by far best track...

17. Devin The Dude - Lil Girl Gone feat. Lil Wayne & Bun B

This is a short version I got when the song first leaked. I never got around to replacing it with the real version. It's of a Mick Boogie mixtape, this is why you hear some kid yelling in the background every once in a while.. Lil Wayne's got the best verse. Actually they all kill it.. Dope song.. When this was released Devin had me thinkin he was gonna make a more grown up, less sexist album - that turned out to be a false alarm. It was the only song of the album I had heard and it was about poor girls who gone wild, not the typical Devin song.. Still dope. J Prince production..

18. Thirstin Howl III - Playground Love

I love this song. Talks about his childhood love like no one else. And he has a killer flow. Have no idea who produced this.

that's it..

I'll do my best to post more frequently in the future.. enjoy!

DOPE crew out of DC. Check their albums "Soon Come" and "48 Months" (which is kind of a collection of some of the vinyl releases they had form the mid 90's on up). IMHO "soon Come" is one of the best albums of the meilennium too.

Asheru is also repsonsible for the theme music the Boondocks TV Show.
