"Anyone that listened to rap in the late 90s should remember this rugged line spitter from The Bronx"
Every now and then, we here at Unhinged Reviews, go back through the archives and pluck out one of our precious jewels from the secret stash. This month we've run across an oldie but goodie named "Nine"!
This raspy-throat scratcher hit us hard in 95' with Nine Livez and we feel that it's only right that we give this hardcore album the shine it deserves. Let's Unhinge...
Hate it or Love it, The Game is here to stay! Jayceon Taylor is one of those guys that somehow manages to rise to the top no matter what gets thrown at him. It doesn't matter if it's a rap feud, court case or even hot lead, The Game always prevails. So when you take all of this into account, it's no wonder that he titled his 5th album, Jesus Piece. This album came out in 2012, but it's still a better listen than a lot of the commercial hits on the airwaves today.
Jesus Piece as a title, is a bold move within itself. It seems a lot of rappers get to a certain point where they feel they've hit "God Staus" lyrically, but as long as it stops there it seems most people don't mind.

Carl Mitchell a.k.a Twista has been putting in work since the early 90s and I feel it's about time we gave him the shine he deserves.
Most of you probably know him from Kanye West's "Overnight Celebrity or the infamous "Get It Wet", but Twista's got some cuts way hotter than that for sure.
We all like a good song for the ladies, but when you want something to blackout to or just want to be amazed at some high level lyrical agility- you play "Overdose".
I singled out the track "Overdose" from his '97 album Adrenaline Rush because it's the first track that I heard when a friend of mine introduced me to
Busa Bus a.k.a Busta Rhymes has got to be one of the most unorthodox rappers ever!
His flows have never been mediocre, the only thing you can be sure of when listening to his music is that he will give 110% on every track.
"Do My Thing" breathes from The Coming album which is another hip-hop classic that inspired a whole new generation of hiphop fans. Busta is most known for his off the hinge, free falling, electrically charged, multi-dimensional flow. To this day, I have never heard anyone professionally attempt to copy
