SOUND SPOT: 8THW1
Rap music has plenty of choices in 2008 for the average listener, but since I'm older and wiser now I am very careful about what I expose my delicate ears too. I have debates atleast twice a week about what albums are supposed to be hot or not. The reality is, it's all about personal choice and preference, and I'm cool with that. Are you? Well, my personal choice of the week is a kat reppin' New Jersey that goes by the name 8thW1. I came across this kat a minute ago, but I didn't really give his tracks a real listen until recently. I finally put ears on 8th's debut album entitled "Lovemoneyandmusic" and I must say that I definitely dug it! It's full of catchy production and hooks. It's a fun album that reminds me of the good old days of rap artists like UMCs and Little Shawn. None of that excessive gun talk, smelling testicles or rap beefs present on this joint, which works for me. I know after peeping 8th's photo you are probably thinking that he's a Kanye West clone of some sort, but don't get it twisted. Dude has his own vibe, which is pretty dope even though he's wearing that Little Red Riding Hood jacket...

Don't take my word for it though. Listen to the album yourselves by clicking the link below:

"Dude has his own vibe, which is pretty dope even though he's wearing that Little Red Riding Hood jacket..." i only quoted you so you or anyone else won't come back at me with no nonsense :-)

...so i go to dude's page, not to check out his music (because i feel we have similar tastes so he shouldn't be too bad, and i was short on time to really check it out) but for my girl. she's looking over my shoulder saying "dag, he could have found a better pic of him than that". i say "with a gomer pyle smile like that, i doubt it". she goes into this "why you hatin'" thing people always throw out there when you're just giving your opinion, and i say "well, let's go to his page and find out". i slide to his page, thumb through the pics. she stands there quiet for a minute, then stomps off and mumbles, "so"...

@Kurt - What's good playboy! I been there my man, so I applaud your effort in resolving that situation...LOL! Truthfully, I try to select my pics carefully for every post, but sometimes my choices are limited. As far as artists go, I feel if they thought a pic was decent enough to post it on the net, who am I to say otherwise.

As usual, thanks for coming thru...

Peace fam, just wanted to say thanks for the shout out...
I'll have you know that is one of my favorite hoodies, lol. I guess I ought to do some pic updates as well, hehehe...

All in all, thanks again. Hope to see you soon, 1

@8thW1 - You're a pretty dope artist my friend. I don't give out props easily, so if you make my "Sound Spot" segment you are definitely doing your thing.

If that red hoodie is your favorite jacket then don't let me deter you from sportin it. Your hoodie isn't the first that I have taken a small shot at, and overall it's not that bad actually. Atleast, you don't have the kind on with all of those silly azz designs all over it...LOL!

Keep doing your thing my dude, and I'll keep spreading the word about you. Thanks for coming thru, and don't be a stranger...
