'Do it Den' Ghetto Prince With brassy horns, this dance tune serves as a direct challenge to b-boys, b-girls and anyone else on the dance floor having a good time. It brings out the atmosphere of old school dance with a new school sound. Oh yeah, don't forget the DJ. Who's got the skills? If you've got 'em get on the dance floor and 'Do it Den.' 'What Did You' Reuben McRay Love, like life, moves on. Love gets taken away and sometimes tries to come back; the trouble is when it leaves, lovers tend to move on then the loved one goes through the hurt of the lover.. This message of love is the first time this classic Hip Hop beat has been sung on. 'I Can't Wait' Lichelle This soulful diva tells her man to move on. She's grown wise and figured out it's time to take her stand. A declaration of independence and self-discovery, on a seductive Hip-Hop/R&B beat, this singer tells the man of her life 'It's too late for you.' 'Summer Time' Mazie T A definite summer anthem, this song combines old-school jazz with modern-day Hip-hop beat, with the mother/son duo Mazie T and Ghetto Prince. A description of common summer scenes, set to some hot keys, life, like seasons and people is always growing and changing. 'Fulljoy Yourself' Empress Lioness This reggae meets Hip Hop tune brings out the true essence of Hip Hop. The spirit of unity and Hip Hop is captured through this dance hall track, which promotes unity through dance and music, regardless of where people are from. 'Freak for Me' Snique and Pretty Looking for a song that has a hot beat and perfect for making girls drop it like it's hot? Well, here it is. This collaboration is definitely for the players out there who like to watch the women. 'Shake that for him.' 'Fast Clap' Kristen Here is a fun, energetic dance beat. There's nothing wrong with wearing out your shoes, clapping your hands and bobbin' your head to this jam. With plenty of sounds in the beat, this one'll make ya get up, dance and fast clap, even after you've left the club. 'Breathe' God Child Poetry isn't always gentle as God Child brings to life the harsh realities of many people in this world on this underground Hip Hop beat laced with soul. Here, he looks at a young crack addict, who finds healing in a surprising place as she learns to deal with the consequences of her actions. This track is seriously intensified with Mazie T's sound of blues. 'Better be Good' Dahna Joan Jett/Pat Benatar meets Hip Hop. What is this world coming to? This track is a combination of Hip Hop meets classic rock. Want to know how it works? Listen to the song, which is very high in marketability, and is on an oriental sounding beat. By the way, Dahna doesn't put up with foolishness, and she only has one regret - that she let you breathe her air. 'Stop' Fatal Position This song is a definite club favorite for party heads. Got to like those horns and is that fighting in the background, making a part of the beat? Listen to the track and make your own opinion. 'Put Your Hands Down' Bzarro This one is definitely for the anti-party heads, those who are like the Grinch. He sounds pretty angry. Stop the party, put your hands down. He doesn't want any fun around here, but the beat makes this track easy to enjoy even if there's a 'grinch' in the house, who likes throwing eggs at your car. 'Place and Time' Angela Davis Spoken word/Hip Hop/Jazz. This sexy track readily describes the quiet love from afar that isn't professed because of shyness or fear. Maybe the lover and the recipient did know each other in another place and time, but how will they ever know if the first steps in getting to know each other are not taken? Wait, there seems to be another woman... 'Bullsh*t Goin Stop' Ghetto Prince, Pretty, Ofron This joint is for all the real Hip-Hop heads who are tired of all the bullshit that goes on in modern day Hip Hop. Many people haven't been exposed to real Hip Hop. Wanna-be thugs are called out. Consciousness is questioned. Relevance is elevated. Give me people something that is real - here it is. 'Start the Party' Da Squadron A typical club joint, this one stands out with hot drums that carry the beat. This one will definitely keep you 'sweatin'' till the break of dawn.
