Juelz Santana – “Ol Thang Back” ft. Jadakiss, Method Man, Redman, Busta Rhymes

Juelz Santana has been getting active again as of late. His most recent effort, “Ol Thang Back,” features a slew of well established veterans – Jadakiss, Method Man, Redman, and Busta Rhymes.

Eastern Wayne Alumni

The Story of Conrizzle’s “Eastern Wayne Alumni”

When Conrizzle dropped “Drugzz” in mid 2013, I was immediately intrigued. Everything fit together perfectly. The song’s self-produced instrumental is hauntingly dark and gloomy. His delivery is impassioned, gritty, aggressive, and rough.
