On his latest single, Brooklyn’s DJ Haze has a little pent-up frustration to let out. Who’s got him so riled up? The ever-present haters, of course. The appropriately-titled Hate opens with a brief rant stating that, though every artist will find him or herself on the receiving end of vicious criticism, one must simply live one’s life and ignore the naysayers. Commiserating about the stress that haters bring are Young Buck and The Game. Buck, the recipient of some very high-profile hate due to his messy split with G-Unit, is more than qualified to speak on the subject, and he makes it quite clear that he’s going to get his cake regardless of what anyone says. Game takes a more aggressive tack, beginning his 16 bars with gruesome threats of decapitation. Haze’s grimy beat underscores the stressful nature of the subject matter during the emcees’ hard-nosed verses. Hate is set for inclusion on an as-yet-untitled compilation album.
