Focused Promo Photo Wale - “Focused”

“Not every song must have deep substance. If it hits inside you and gets you hyped, it's a great achievement. Wale has a unique style, love his lyrics and delivery.”

Christine Dior Denim Flow Promo Photo Kanye West - “Christine Dior Denim Flow”

“What the... ? What's up with this rating? Production and chorus alone (Legend's higher vocals, yet on the background, were exquisite!), make this a banger! The guitar?! Oh God! You must really not care about that instrument not to go crazy on the second part of the song and the riffs. By the way, switching it like that was classy good taste! People need to stop being so biased every time they hear an unexpected rapping... Trey Songz often out-raps rappers on his remixes (check "Over", much better than Drake)! Ryan L. was fine, Banks was surprising, Cudi sounded finally at home and enjoyable. Musical feast!”

Power (Remix) Promo Photo Kanye West - “Power (Remix)”

“It's simply impossible to do it better than Mr. West! It's not just genius... it's hard work and passion here! All the modifications on the beat and vocals worked for the better and the song ended up fittingly powerful. The "I’ve Got the Power" moment was unreal... Grammys already reserved.”

J. Cole J. Cole - “Blow Up”

“J. Cole is the most talented, consistent hip hop artist I've heard since Kanye West. Production is simply amazing; I like how much guitar he brings into his beats, fresh percussion/rhythm and real musical vision (the break in 2nd verse just creates that space for you to enjoy the other instruments even more when they kick back in... and the bridge by the end is just exquisite!). His delivery (both rapping and harmonizing naturally *cough..autotunedrake..cough*) and lyrics are flawless!”

J. Cole J. Cole - “Premeditated Murder”

“Rappers are usually insecure about having good vocals in rap (it's not "cool", you know, maybe even "gay"), so even the fans can’t recognize singing when they hear it from a rapper... but that's exactly what J. Cole did here (without autotune *cough*Drake*cough*). Production is amazingly beautiful, the composition denotes a real artist behind it, with musical ear. And all that comes from a guy who is rapping like the finest MCs ever, yet so genuine.”

The Lady Killer Promo Photo Cee-Lo Green - “The Lady Killer”

“... ?!? Didn't see this coming, definitely, even after he started singing (there I go, talking as if I knew of him when he rapped! :p). But Nathan, how can you rate this short of classic? I mean, according to your rules, you believe the man could do a better record than this... that's just not possible! I'm with Mr. Phantastic.”
