S.A.N.T.A.N.A. Pt. 3

October 27, 2005

Yo, here's some stuff we like: Christmas, kittens, potato chips, beer, chicken tenders and Juelz Santana. IT'S NOT UP FOR DEBATE. If you are a Santanahatta you need to go to a therapist and work it out. You might be the type who complains, "Dang, the kid has been promising to tell me what the game has been missing since the end of summer, and I still am in the dark. I am waiting on dude like he was Moses. Where are the tablets!?" What's the first commandment? AND THE LORD SAID BE EASY! Even though Def Jam has been pushing back his sophmore LP, dude has been staying in the studio, and just released a great new mixtape as a result.

His third edition of block-fresh burners caps an amazing run for the Harlem prince. Put together, the Cooked Crack mixes stand as one of the best set of songs released by anyone this year. But our favorite thing about these discs is that it's clear dude likes the same rap music we do. Vol. 3 features Santana rapping over "How I Could Just Kill A Man," ("Just because we call it Sugar Hill don't make it sweet") Big Daddy Kane's "Ain't No Half Steppin" ("I'm the raw that y'all been waiting for/ Cook it up, free base for all"), Em's "My Name Is," "Regulate" and "U Don't Know," and he skips down memory lane murdering them all.

(Furthermore, dude samples Max Casella - aka Doogie Howser's boy - from Newsies. They both like to shout "A!")
