On just one listen, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/snoop-dogg">Tha Doggfather</a> snaps out of his lethargic routine to bring forth one of his most energetically charged "16's" in recent memory, but on another it’s 40 Water who throws down several different flows with pinpoint accuracy to wreck the beat.

TSS Presents Better Late Than Never Vol. 1

By | 31 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/tss-presents-better-late-than-never-vol-1"> Time has a not-so-funny way of passing us by. As we, TSS Crew strive to give you our earnest and admittedly, unquestionable opinions on the albums of the day, sometimes even a couple projects slip through our impenetrable reviewing hands. Take a SXSW here and a couple trips to New York there, the missed calls begin to pile up. So as we enter the quarter of our Hip-Hop fiscal year, here's our chance to blow secondhand smoke on some of 2010's offerings. As always, there's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/ratings">the good, the bad and the in-between</a>.

Droop-E Gets “Loaded” For Sade

By | 9 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/droop-e-feat-e-40-loaded"> I'm such a Sade Adu stan that I immediately get to side-eyeing whenever notions of "tribute" projects in her name are brought up. I thought her <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/soldier-of-love">last album</a> was a pap smear on her legacy and I'd rather listen to lesser-known songs from Promise than roughly 86% of new R&B.
