5.0 out of 5 stars Best PSP Title To Date? Possibly, 21 May 2007
This game is sensational. Initially I found it difficult to get used to the controls. However as soon as I changed them to ELITE in the games settings, it become a whole lot better. I reccomend this setup as it means you use triangle to move forward, x to move down, o to move right, and sq to move left. It pretty much entails, holding the triangle button, and moving the analog stick to move turn. Since the one and only "bad" aspect of the game has now been dealt with, everything is superb. Great graphic, immersive gameplay and a fantastic multiplayer experiance. 32 online is amazing as the maps are big and detailed. 8 player wi fi, brilliant. Campaign mode is excellent as well. JUST GO AND BUY IT. FANTASTIC GAME.

1.0 out of 5 stars More Drivel From The Worst Rapper Of All Times, 21 May 2007
This review is from: Dedication II (Audio CD)
Absolutely not Hip Hop. This is a pop album. Lil Wayne is by far and away the worst rapper ever, the only people who think hes good are, the educationally sub normal, youngsters who have never heard "classics" other than Biggie and Tupac, people who have never heard any underground hip hop and the metally incapable. This is apalling, his lyrics are dire, his beats are pop, and his voice resembles that of an eleven yeat old female.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Just Wow, 21 April 2007
This review is from: The Big Picture (Audio CD)
Not as good as Lifestylez of the poor and dangerous, infact it pales in comparison. However the abnormal quality of that album would pale most classics and this is certainly a classic. The production of this album is spot on, it flows beatifully and there is at no point an inclination to skip a track. Big L paints a detailed picture of life as a young black new yorker and tells a truth a little to close to home for some. Big Ls flow is untouchable, even the legendary flow of Biggie Smalls could not make the grade. A great album and a must own for everyone of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would Have Been The Best, 21 April 2007
If Big L had not died, he would have been the best ever. His hard hitting truths mixed with silky smooth flow and intoxicating voice make Big L the biggest loss to hip hop of them all. His mainstream appeal never really took off but there is undoubtedly a hint of Big L in every other rapper thereafter. Big L was the greatest MC ever to pick up a microphone yet he will always be overshadowed by the more successful artists such as Biggie and Jay Z. However, of these three NY artists, Big L was the greatest at catching a beat and undoubtledly at freestyling. This is evident in the freesyle session with Jay Z stretch and bobbito. It wasn't that Jay Z was sub par that day, but Big L wass just too good. L's clever punchlines and metaphors make him the true king of NY. Who else could cme up with the witty line, "mad hoes ask beavis I get nuttin but head" during a freestyle session.

Anyways, back to the album. This is pure hip hop a must own and could possibly have been the greatest album of them all, if Big L had better promotion. Every track has a great beat, great lyrics and a truly untouchable flow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop Is Alive And Well, 21 April 2007
This review is from: Revolutionary Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
Immortal Technique follows up his critically acllaimed Revolutionary Volume 1 with the much improved volume 2. This album is quite simply mind blowing. The ability of this man cannot be overlooked.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Is Not Hip Hop, 21 April 2007
While this post 2000 era in the world of hip hop has seen the emergence of fantastic underground artists such as Immortal Technique, Murs, Brother Ali etc... it has also seen mainstream garbage come to the forefront. Lil Wayne has little to no lyrical ability, his voice resembles that of an eleven year old girl and his subject matter appeals to the weak minded, educationally abnormal audience. Lil Wayne embodies a generation of youths who are driven by the quest to own the latest gimmick, and thats precisely what "Weezy baby" is. His metaphors and punchlines are so basic, it not only makes him sound retarted, it makes you feel stupid for listening to it.

I find the hype surrounding Lil Wayne extremely perplexing yet oddly understandable. The majority of his fans are under the age of sixteen and have not yet been exposed to the lyrical genious of old skool artists and as such, know no better. However as I previously mentioned, the introduction of modern day lyrical geniouses such as Immortal Technique and Murs who concentrate on the art of Emceeing and projecting thier views in an artistic manner, make the continued success of Lil Wayne ever more confusing. Lil Wayne should not be classed as hip hop/rap, he is a popstar.

To all those who think Lil Wayne is the greatest rapper, how can that possibly be true. Weezy isn't even the best alive. Can you honestly tell me Wayne can compare to these to name but a few.

Tupac

Biggie

Big L

Big Pun

Nas

Jay Z

Rakim

Kool G Rap

Immortal Technique

Saigon

Murs

Brother Ali

Big Daddy Kane

Apathy

Eminem

Copywrite

Diabolic

Akir

Ice Cube

Snoop Dogg

Talib Kweli

the list goes on.....

As well as this, the fact that the two previous reviewers gave the album 5 stars is both odd, and worrying. Can this album really be on a par in these peoples minds to say, The Chronic, Illmatic, Ready To Die, Reasonable Doubt. Hell no. Having said that, the state of complete dissaray mainstream hip hop finds itself in, and the relative lack of promotional appeal of underground artists such as, and I will again mention Immortal Technique. It seems the art of self promotion, hip hop with a message, story telling and hustling is limited to true visionaries and is being suffocated by the corporate greed of but a few. The facts are, the hard hitting truth telling of the underground only appeals to true hip hop heads and will never sell to the masses as it tells a truth a little to close to home. This is why the success of Lil Wayne, 50 cent, Chamillionaire, Cassidy, Nelly etc... will continue as Hip Pop appeals and reaches a wider audience. As the underground plunges further into obscurity, true hip hop fans will have no choice but to turn to these pop acts not fit to grace a stage as they will know no better.

If you still think Weezy is the best I suggest doing some research and then go listen to a truly classic album.
