Feeling this video, even if it does remind me of Jay-Z, for a number of reasons, including the MIA/Santigold sound-a-like sample on the hook!! Dude's got flow and bars, with a chain and watch to let you know he's bout it bout it!

Video: Juelz Santana – Home Run (Feat Lil Wayne)

Juelz and Weezy F. Baby team up for this slightly predictable but none-the-less heavy tune... These guys work well together and Juelz is some what under-rated in 2011! As an all rounded mainstream rapper he's representing NYC to the fullest!

Download: Rewd Adams - Rewd Awakening

Masssive link up here - Flexplicit who's also known as Flex the Truth links up with Detroit's Royce da 5'9 who's certainly one of my favourite underground US rappers (and my favourite member of Slaughterhouse)!

WRETCH 32 and JEREMY KYLE - The inevitable has happened

Great PR for the guy tho! All congrats are due to Wretch for hitting no. 5 in the national charts with Traktor, and retaining his dignity as a real lyricist! On top of that the tune's not poppy/commercial/sell out!!
It's definitely refreshing that Jeremy Kyle plays along with it!
