    New Music: Pussycat Dolls – ‘When I Grow Up (Darkchild Remix)’

    Just when we posted the remix for “When I Grow Up” with Eve, another one hits with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Diddy, Lil Wayne, and Fatman Scoop. This one features an entirely new beat courtesy of Darkchild, who put it down on this remix. He’s killin’ us with the MJ “Thriller” intro.

    Not great numbers as usual for Nas but at least he got the no.1 spot….

    Does he class as underrated or too political??

    Love his messages and tracks but he needs them street beatz to support his lyrics

    ^^^^^^ this album didn’t need “street beats” it was about the lyrical content, and the messages within. besides the beats were classic and they provided the backdrop needed to carry his lyrics and flow. see that’s whats f***** up with hip hop today. rappers dont talk about s***, but throw a hot beat to it and it goes platinum. that is not hip hop!

    this album was a classic. if you dont have it, then your not a fan of tru hip hop, and you’re missing out. i can lay the entire thing without skipping a track.

    “Hero” is hands down the record of the year.
    The lyrics, the beat, the hook. Everything about it is genius.

    Good for Nas but I don’t think it’s that big of a deal Lil’ Wayne sold over 1 million in his first week. Nas sold only 187 thousand. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe Wayne out sold that in the first day.Some people don’t like Lil’ Wayne so they are trying to make this a bigger deal than it really is. I’m neither a hater or a super fan of either on I’m just telling it like it is.

    For it not to be a mainstream album like that, Nas did a good numbers. Lil Wayne and nas are two different rappers. Wayne did a million first week but we all know how record companys are when buyin for the hype that is really wasn’t. It’s alright though. Anyway, Nas put out a good album. Congrats to him.
