Y'all Niggas is Pussy, Poonani, Vagina, Your Monologue's Getting Tired

Everyone close there eyes, and go back to 2004.
Remember that time?
Swizz Beatz suddenly came back to help T.I. bump "Bring 'Em Out," and Kanye was winning people over with "All Falls Down."
Everybody there now?
Now let's take it to New York. You're coming out with a single, named after said city. Give me your three choice MCs for the cut. Anyone, you can get Hov, Nasty Nas, Monch, bring back the old like Kane or KRS, maybe even a Wu drop or two. You pick:
Jadakiss-Not bad. Homeboy can spit pretty gutter.
Fat Joe-Umm...alright, I guess he can make people remember Big Pun.
Ja Rule-Word, nigga? It's gonna be like that?
Alright, well maybe you can bring it back with that production.
I'm sorry? Did you just ask for Cool & Dre? But...those kids ain't even from New York.

And so became, strangely, what was the best single Ja Rule ever put out. Cool & Dre put out some straight grime for that beat, and the verses became a roaring crescendo of pure East Coast braggado-Joey even took a shot at Ma$e...crack!

Now, three years later, with the release of "New York is Back" DJ Khaled forces us to ask the question, "Can lightning strike twice."
The answer:
Sweet Jesus Ass-Fuck No.

No one likes sequels.
Cool & Dre are running out of tricks. (Speaking of which, where the hell were they on The Game's last album?)
Jadakiss & Ja...haven't really done much since the last time the gang got together, and Fat Joe's currently on vacay in Miami.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, DJ shout-outs that would make Funk Flex blush are not necessary at all. If you wanna get on your album, try producing something.


P.S. Hate to break it to you fellas, but until Desire gets dropped this summer, New York ain't coming back.

Best Ja Rule single? I dunno, remember this?

Long before we knew he'd be ripping off Grease in his videos he actually came off real hard and I was genuinely excited for his first record. Feh.

Altho "New York" gets points for jacking its chorus from the best song off the worst BDP record (which I still love).

To be honest, "It's Murda" never really did it for me.

And I felt that Craig Mack would've killed the beat for "Kill 'Em All" had he been on it instead.

I can respect the way Ja spits back then though. It is much missed. Maybe having Vanessa Carlton on The Inc. is the change Ja needs to get his career lifted again.
Hell, I'm pretty sure Ja sounds less pussy than Fiddy these days.
