After the Cannon (Remix) and Takin’ Pictures came and went with little mainstream shine, DJ Drama decided to release the third “first single” from his long-awaited Gangsta Grillz: The Album. Similar to both previously mentioned singles, the strip-club joint 5000 Ones has a longer-than usual guest list. Diddy joins Drama for the intro and some ad-libs, leading up to Jazze Pha and Nelly sharing the hook. The first verse has T.I. channeling his alter-ego T.I.P. (who probably aided his current federal weapons charges) for a lyrically-charged offering. Yung Joc, Willie the Kid, and Young Jeezy spit rather forgettable flows in the middle; but Twista steps his game up with the closing verse, leaving the listener feeling good about 5000 Ones. Gangsta Grillz: The Album, take it or leave it, is set to drop December 4th.
