Rap fans complaining that shit got too soft need look no further than Alley Boy, who regularly releases songs that would probably make our grandmas cringe. His upcoming mixtape is even called The Definition of Fuck Shit. But talking about Alley Boy's controversial subject matter makes us sound like Nancy Reagan in '92. It's more important to note that all of Alley Boy's material thus far has been completely solid. It's not going to get him on whatever channel they're playing videos on these days (MTV2 from like 5:06am to 5:23am), but it is interesting to note the way he effortlessly traverses various sub-scenes. Hopping on snap-lite tracks with Pill or releasing something like the over the top "Rappin and Robbin," with Waka Flocka and Princess, who has not been rapping nearly enough since Crime Mob effectively seemed to disband.
