tj’s dj’s tastemakers xclusives disc 1 1. Rich Boy / Throw Some Dees – Interscope Contact: Rosalie – 310.865.7929 On this track you can tell that Rich Boy is steady smirking ‘cause his flow is dangerous. What’s more, like Indego Montoya, he knows something that you don’t - he’s not even right handed. His natural talent is production rather than rapping. 2. Rick Ross / Push It - Slip-N-Slide/Def Jam Contact: Eclass@nextel.blackberry.net “Push It” features an interpolation from one of the greatest montage records made famous by Scarface the movie and South Park. Rick Ross’ Miami gangsta tales are so boss that they would make Crockett & Tubbs look silly. 3. David Banner ft. Yola / Get Money – b.i.G.f.a.c.e./SRC Contact: Willie Nash – 601.238.5658 David Banner cleverly samples Yola’s “Ain’t Gonna Let Up” and proves that he’s ahead of his time as the rest of the world has yet to discover what Yola has to offer. Scroll down to track 9 and you’ll see why Banner decided to run with this lil monster. 4. Trick Daddy / I Pop – Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic Contact: Sam Crespo – sam.crespo@atlanticrecords.com Trick Daddy’s got another notch for the catalog. This record is funky and shows Trick on a different level. Plus Trick continues to spit thought provoking word play when he explains why “$100 bills smell like pubic hairs.” 5. BHI / Dat Bubble Gum – BME Contact: Sabrina Montgomery – 404.367.8130 Just when you thought snap music was through, BHI will have the genre sticking around like “Bubble Gum” with this juicy record. 6. Young Dro / Rubberband Banks – Grand Hustle/Atlantic Contact: Sam Crespo – sam.crespo@atlanticrecords.com Young Dro takes a break from making his shoulder lean to show that that record has set him up rather lovely. In other words his rubberbands have expanded like his bank account. 7. Bohagon ft. Crime Mob & Fabo / Wuz Up – BME Contact: Sabrina Montgomery – 404.367.8130 Bohagon, the B-M-E- representa, strikes a strong blow for those who are interested in having their bass bins blown up by an MC that will make your cones snap to the music. Plus, with Crime Mob checking in on the track shaking their dreads, the track is elevated to another club banging dimension. And that’s wuz up! 8. Young Buck ft. 50 Cent / Do It Myself – G-Unit/Interscope Contact: Rosalie – 310.592.2121 The theme of the record is really simple. When you need to make improvements on how you live, like Home Depot you should do it yourself and G-Unit with 50 Cent can help. In fact, 50 lets a few bullets off of his chest by drawing a retaliatorial line in the sand. 9. Yola / Ain’t Gonna Let Up – Grand Hustle/Atlantic Contact: Sam Crespo – sam.crespo@atlanticrecords.com At first listen, the Caribbean steal drums in the production lead to a laid back vibe until Yola gets on the track and crushes all haters in the way. Straight up, Yola is a monster in training. By the way, watch out for T.I. - the executive. Quiet though. 10. Young Capone / Wat It Iz – So So Def/Virgin Contact: Tikke Chaney – 212.786.8215 This is a Nitty beat that Young Capone takes full advantage of. Young Capone is a nice addition to the So So Def/Virgin stable. He’s been in the minor leagues getting his weight up and from the sound of this record; it is time for him to be called up to the majors. 11. Magic ft. Detroit / Shorty – BHE/TVT

Contact: TVT – 212.979.6410 Magic knows that shorties love a gangsta. And Magic is more than eager to deliver yet another quality tune that the people want. Be on the lookout for Magic, he is on another level since his rise from the ashes of New Orleans. 12. Obie Trice / Jamaican Girl – Interscope Contact: Rosalie – 310.592.2121 Taking the lead from Eminem the producer on a carefully crafted island tune, Obie Trice demonstrates that he is not afraid of change. And in fact, flows well on the oceans of this tropical melody. 13. Chyna Whyte ft. Gangsta Boo & DJ Demp / Drop A Bundle – BME Contact: Sabrina Montgomery – 404.367.8130 Finally, China White has come back to whup tracks and beat bass with a gangsta style unmatched by any other MC. She has recruited Gangsta Boo and DJ Demp, the shorty pimp to accentuate an already club crunching record soon to break needles across the South. 14. Jibbs / Chain Hang Low – Geffen Contact: Rosalie – 310.592.2121 Jibbs perfectly translates a children’s nursery rhyme into a tune that celebrates opulence. If the thought rolls eyes, keep an open mind, remember there were many people who felt Nelly could never sell a record with a nursery rhyme, and he turned out alright. 15. Daz ft. Kurupt / Daz Thang – So So Def/Virgin Contact: Tikke Chaney - 212.786.8215 Daz reached back to his roots with a jam just short of “7 Minutes of Funk” and he brought The Whole Darn Family by reuniting with the OG DPG Kurupt. Jermaine Dupri is in a great zone right now and continues the trend with another hot one. Oh, and the XXX rated video of this tune is a great way to have your break today. 16. M.O.S. / Drug Related – Jive Contact: Chad Brown – jivemixshow@gmail.com On “Drug Related,” M.O.S. speaks of life in the land of Carolina blue where life wasn’t guaranteed. It’s not the life that’s celebrated, M.O.S. is happy he made it and with tracks this good, I’m sure Jive is too. 17. Young Hot Rod ft. Mary J. Blige / Be Easy - Interscope Contact: Rosalie – 310.592.2121 Anytime the Queen blesses a track a certain polish remains leaving the listener with the understanding of what makes soul music feel so good. Young Hot Rod is old enough to know when a blessing is bestowed upon him and crafts a record worthy of royalty. 18. Plies / Take Off – Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic Contact: Sam Crespo – sam.crespo@atlanticrecords.com For the record, Plies is not the future of Slip-N-Slide, he’s the right now. And if you come up shorting Plies, you better take off cuz he has no problems seeing you about it - he’s got lots of bond money behind him. 19. Trillville ft. Kandi & Cutty Cartel / Eat It Up – BME Contact: Sabrina Montgomery – 404.367.8130 Trillville has teamed up with everyone’s favorite multi-platinum flavored Kandi to make a track that tastes so good, you have to “Eat It Up.” Be prepared to dance off the pounds because a joint that tastes this good can’t be good for your health. 20. Lyfe Jennings ft. Lala Brown / S.E.X. – Sony/Columbia Contact: Cara Lewis – 212.903.1316 One word: wow! This is the definition of a great record that is sure to boost the population 9 months from its release. - Keith “1st Prophet” Kennedy, keith@tjsdjs.com
