Phenomenal – Eminem – Off the soundtrack to the movie “Southpaw”, this is a braggarts pleasure, nobody spits it and rhymes it for five minutes as well as Em, and this isn’t him in Ree duet pop mode, this is hot firing on all cylinders.  “I am phenomenal with every ounce of my blood” he roars, as Eminem works for all its worth the boxing-rapper metaphor. Consider it “Eight Miles” by other means. DJ Khalil produced it  – B+

Children Of The World – Steve Angello – So this is a mixed blessing type of a song, on one hand the former Swedish House mafia honcho is joining with Save The Children too, well save the children, on the other, they’ll need saving after listening to this piece of crap – D+

My Imagination – John Legend – Really? What imagination exactly? Another piece of crap from “Finding Neverland” – D

Forever Young – Blake Shelton – The Rod and Zim song, very very heartfelt – C+

No No No – Beirut – he art-rock classic nuanced hipsters go pop and are the better for it on this catchy sweet nothing – B

40 Oz On repeat – Fidlar – Harmless enough but it lacks the stick appeal we are used to and what’s with the tempo shift? – B

The Meth Lab – Method Man, Street Life – What Method Man and Eminem have in common this week is a full and hard rap style which seems to fly in the face of modern brooding rappers. To put it simpler, the guys have flow and then some – B
