Of all people, Cam’ron knows money is the biggest motivator of all. That’s why the Boss Of All Bosses dropped this dedication to duckets for the third installment of his top-tier mixtape series. If you’re not satisfied by your bank statement, throw this one on repeat.

People can talk all they want about how whack rappers’ love songs are. But, the quality of a hip-hop serenade is completely relative to the MC making the track and type of lady it’s made for. So, when Jada, Sheek & Styles drop something for the ride or die chicks in their lives, just assume bonafide hotness.
The Lox Feat. Shella – “What To Do”
With almost a thousand relevant songs coming out on the daily, you can’t really hold it against Tank for giving his Savior single the exact same name and concept as the one Krizzle currently has in rotation. But, you can hold it against Ace Hood for saying he’s “ballin’ like Ray Allen.” These days, that’s like saying you’re higher than the sidewalk.
Tank Feat. Slim Thug, Kevin McCall & Ace Hood – “Money On The Floor”
If you got problems with Houston’s most crooked MC, then you’ll be calling for reinforcements when you hear this one. Soaking some sinister horns with his soulful flow and pistol-packing prerogative, Z-Ro replaces his gators with steel-toes and explains how players get gangster, too.
Z-Ro – “Stompin”
Before you brush off Tinie Tempah for his awkward rap accent, take in this swarming stand-out from his Happy Birthday mixtape, which drops next week. Before the boisterous beat picked up and I heard Cole’s verse buried at the back of the track, I was sold on Tinie’s line, “aggins chose the pen, while I picked up the pencil.”
