Uh huh, yes.

Am I the only person who hasn't come around to this one, yet.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/12/yung-la-feat-young-dro-big-kuntry-damn-i-look-good"> Yesterday, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/big-kuntry-king">Big Kuntry</a> dropped these two tracks off via <a href="http://twitter.com/BigKuntryKing/status/24701236462">Twitter</a> and I was enthused because any <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/macboney">Macboney</a> sighting is a sign that my Lord and Savior is still hard at work, whipping work and saving souls.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/8ball-mjg-feat-young-dro-dj-bring-it-back-video"> Given the self-deprecating relationship Hip-Hop has with its elders, it didn't come as too much surprise when Southern legends <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/8ball-mjg">8Ball & MJG</a> decided to trail off into platinum pastures, joining Diddy Combs' Bad Boy Records in 2004.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/download-ti-fuck-a-mixtape"> Not to be outdone by <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/download-rick-ross-the-albert-anastasia-ep">Officer Ricky</a>, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/ti">T.I.</a> is here with his long-anticipated mixtape.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/download-t-i-yeah-ya-know-takers"> Welp. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/download-t-i-yeah-ya-know-takers">I called it</a>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/t-i-im-back-video"> While it hasn't happened yet (and best believe it well), Tip has yet to make a candy-coated push for the radio. The prime beneficiaries are you, the underground head, Hip-Hop purist who even knows this post exist. This is the gutter side of his artistic talents. The side superstars usually abandon once they get famous enough. All that pent-up aggression and energy from Fed time forces <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/ti">T.I.</a> to do the opposite, however.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/video-b-o-b-performs-dont-let-me-fall-night-before-album-release"> Labeling artists as geniuses or phenoms has become all too common and, for the most part, baseless these days. True, making hits isn't easy. But, once upon a time, being a professional musician was once considered a career as opposed to a hobby to open the door for other avenues. Already carving out his own lane before achieving national attention, Bobby Ray Simmons burst on the scene as <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/b-o-b">B.o.B</a>, an Atlanta-bred MC with a penchant for wildman-like raps with lyrical flair.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/03/t-i-im-back"> The chains and shackles are unlocked and what we have hear is an untamed beast, ladies and gentlemen. Just like he never left, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/ti">Tip</a> gets in his bag of goods and puts in work.
<a href="http://www.myspace.com/welcometohillkrunk"> Obviously aiming to score big on the smoker's holiday, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/8ball-mjg">8Ball & MJG's</a> "Fly Away" seems appropriate for all seasons especially for those that partake in the sticky icky as a part of today's breakfast breakfast.
Now that <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/t-i-first-interview-post-prison-release">Tip is home</a>, it seems Grand Hu$tle can resume their regularly scheduled programs.
Looks like <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/bob-aka-bobby-ray">B.o.B.'s</a> breaking a few tricks out of his bag, bringing out two potent remixes in less than 24 hours.
Froze me too, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/young-dro">Dro</a>.
Featuring production by the <a href="http://www.twitter.com/Trackslayerz">Trackslayerz</a> duo — whose credits include Jim Jones’ “Pulling Me Back” and Yung Joc’s “<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/08/yung-joc-posted-at-the-store-video">Posted at Da Store</a>” — we get our first listen to post-prison <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/ti">T.I.</a> with the release of the aptly-titled "I'm Back.
I was content without doing another post, cold chillin' for the rest of the evening.
New <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/bob-aka-bobby-ray">Bobby Ray</a> for the meantime, in between time before the Grand Hustle debut drops.
By now, you should know Bobby Ray is <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/08/bob-aka-bobby-ray-should-have-been-the-first-album-mixtape">involved</a> in <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/06/bob-who-the-fk-is-bob-mixtape-no-dj">a lot</a> of <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/11/bob-presents-the-features">mixtapes</a>, and he <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/the-best-mixtapes-of-2009">does them well</a>.
Their time spent @ Grand Hustle hasn't seen much by way of productivity from <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/8ball-mjg">8Ball</a> the fat mack and <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/8ball-mjg">M-J-fuckin-G</a>.
