On upbeat anthem New Years, Virginia Beach native Champain Era is ready to usher in a changing of the guard. Once again enlisting Warryn Campbell (see Back to the Future) on the production tip, Era continues to amaze listeners with his distinctive sound. After the ball drops on New Years, you’ll find yourself wanting to hit the replay button to catch the witticisms you missed the first time around. Christening the game with a vision that has Champ playing “Ken to these Barbies,” this well-executed album track continues to showcase both the celebration and the growth of hip-hop. With the countdown to ’09 on, Champain Era is one party favor that you’ll want to have handy.
