Lupe Fiasco - LASERS

 While pretty much everyone was disappointed by this release it’s hard to deny that it’s still at the very least a good album and its standout tracks hold up well against the high points of Food & Liquor and The Cool. It’s the low points the album experiences that ensure it’ll never be seen on the same level as his previous two releases.

Raekwon - Shaolin v Wu-Tang

 I tend to judge Raekwon releases by the production and the guest verses as raekwon himself doesn’t hold that much interest for me. I thought the production was a mixed bag and ditto for the guest verses.

Reks - R.E.K.S

 Really enjoying this. A little inconsistent (like every Reks release) but I’d say this is his strongest album yet.

Treble and Blues - The Blue Note

 Not much to say about this except that if you enjoy jazz influenced Hip-Hop you’ll love it.
