Estelle, David Banner & Daley – “Benz” Video

By

<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/benz-single/id430567294"> 125 years. That's a mighty long time to have a company be renown for excellence and high-class standards. Very few can attest to such longevity and Mercedes-Benz just so happens to be a part of the club. Together with their signature emblem and innovative labeling system for their vehicles, they have been staples in the world where four wheels meet the pavement not only for mobility, but for equal parts style for some time. In all fairness, it's the only German engineering the entire world ever unanimously agreed on. Milestone anniversaries deserve a grand celebration or at the least, an exclusive coronation and the folks in the music department put their resources together with <a href="http://www.blagmagazine.com/">Blag Magazine</a> to unify three very distinctive talents to remake a Janis Joplin record.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/download-game-x-dj-skee-purp-and-patron-mixtape"> After a night of being cross-faded, if you’re out of Advil®, the best cure for that migraine the day after is more liquor. So just in case you’ve started get comfortable with Game’s Purp & Patron mixtape, he’s unleashed a sequel, The Hangover, to help you rid those morning after blues. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/download-game-x-dj-skee-purp-and-patron-mixtape">Last week’s offering</a> wasn’t bad, especially in comparison to his 2010 releases, but there was still definitely room for improvement.

“Strange” – Review Of David Banner & 9th Wonder’s Death Of A Pop Star

By | 14 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=159851"> The byproduct of good chemistry could be the gateway to endless positive outcomes. Chemistry, it's something we preach over here at TSS as you should know by now, all of our reviews are formulated through discussion from Crew members to eliminate personal bias. And speaking of chemistry, up next on our palette is an artist who tries to bring it out of everyone he creates a beat for pitted with another, who, for some reason has struggled with the science of mixing his thoughts with the proper mood and production. Switching our approach a tad bit for this Crew Review, each member tackled a song on the LP to show you how an album's individual parts can affect the overall rating, no matter the peaks. It's David Banner and 9th Wonder's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/death-of-a-pop-star">Death Of A Pop Star</a> and it's about to be placed on the autopsy table.
