Diddy / Ridin’ High – Bad Boy/Atlantic Contact: Sam Crespo – sam.crespo@atlanticrecords.com Traditional 8Ball & MJG fans may not be used to the duo on an up tempo S.

DJ Unk / Walk It Out – Big Oomp/Koch Contact: Gazelle – 212.353.8800 x266 DJ Unk with “Walk It Out” continues the Big Oomp tradition of keeping folks musically intoxicated while they shake jelly on the dance floor. One time to DJ Montay who is in a great production zone right now. 4.

Mannie Fresh / I’m Da Man – Akright Contact: Heidi Buech - 310.869.4010 With a proclaimed beat king like Mannie Fresh behind him, it’s no problem for Shawt to claim that “I’m Da Man.” Thankfully, he has the skills to make the track Akright and develop into a record worthy of such acclaim. 8. Hard Head Jacob / Trap All Day – Stay Paid Contact: Rio – 678.283.8057 In order to stay paid, Hard Head Jacob outlines his daily routine while working at the “Trap All Day.” The hard bass line is strong enough to scare the trap rats away and vibrates speakers enough to trap the hood rats. 9. Big Koon & Hollywood / Take It Back – Two Dogg Contact: Johnny Vickers - 850.443.5999 If you needed extra motivation to get your stacks up, Big Koon & Hollywood murderize this cut to provide a sense of urgency to collect that paper. 10. Small Tyme Ballaz / Be Rich One Day – Small World/Long Money Contact: Uncle Paully - 334.221.8497 Just because you’re a baller on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have big tunes.

11. Wine-O / Pop My Trunk – Wine-O/Universal Contact: Heidi Buech - 310.869.4010 Fed up with the haters dipping into his business, Wine-O has popped the trunk and is ready to lay haters to rest.

Lil Ru / King Of The Parking Lot – Bout What Contact: Greg Fish – 803.731.8173 DJ Brad of the Legion of Doom laces a beat that Lil Ru takes full advantage of. When this track drops in the classic rides outside of the club, Lil Ru will officially be crowned King of the Parking Lot. 13. Urban Mystic ft. Stacks / I Refuse (Remix) – Sobe Contact: Buggah – 305.754.6446 Urban Mystic, the lil guy with a big soul has found the right combination to make ‘em make ‘em clap to this like Rakim on repeat. It involves Rick Ross, Stacks, and a hip-hop classic that makes you refuse to listen to this record only once. 14. Tiffany ft. Jacki-O / Automatic – Phamus Folks Contact: Micky Rollins – 786.586.4653 Thanks to Gorilla Tek, Tiffany and the Miami Madame Jacki-O jump in for a musical ride a la Thelma & Louise that keeps you hanging on to your seat as if you’re flying off a cliff. 15. Durt Mobb Clik / She Wrong 4 Dat - Da Mouf Contact: Pope – 910.474.6559 Mixing well with the snap beat sets, Durt Mobb Clik have arrived to become the club fashion police by drawing attention to all of the reasons why a club chick goes home lonely. 16.

Black Majik / No Cash Flow – Manatee Contact: Doc – 312.226.9034 If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, Sonia Collymore is one of the hottest artists on the market as she wants to buy her man so many good things but there’s “No Cash Flow.” With a tune this vibrant it won’t be long before Sonia leaves her money woes behind. 18. Decky ft. Max Minelli / Louder - Divided Soul Contact: Brent Dixon - 225.315.1772 Decky made a smart move by keeping the in-house production of Divided Soul as they laced a beat with a nice mix of scratching and a protruding bass line. With a track produced this well you will have no choice but to turn the music “Louder.” 19. Black Majik / Put Your Drink Up – Manatee Contact: Doc – 312.226.9034 Black Majik fits a perfect slow mo flow over production that makes your ears hear double as if intoxicated by this Chicagoan’s lyrical sensations. 20. Coalition / Alarm – Pure Platinum Contact: Big Boo - 901.240.5491 Driving two miles an hour so everybody sees the Coalition, haters will have to raise the alarm to alert the block that true ballers are on the set. And with a cup of drank in their palm the Coalition ain’t bout to let no B.S. pass on this cruisin’ tune. - Keith “1st Prophet” Kennedy, keith@tjsdjs.com
