What Are You Listening To? XIX

You got a point there Turntable, there's been times where people have recognised his skills like when he put out "Lean Back" and battled 50. Now sure he dumbed down here or there but who hasn't really at some point? A lot of times this happens 'cause fans are fickle when they send a mix signal in what they want

Now here's a shining example of when he's on top of his game:

DJ Kay w/Fat Joe, Joe Buddens, and Joe "Not Your Average Joe"

Yeah, I'm not mad at him ether, but I think it's complicated for him. Obiviously people do not like his new style and he's not happy about that, because he does not want to go back to his old style because he fees like he has nothing left to prove, he wants to move on and focus on making melodic rap songs instead of complex stuff.. But it isnt working as most people just dont seem to wanna hear stuff like that coming from him these days.

MC Hammer "Heartbreaka"(Is What They Call Me), I never heard of this track until I found it just now on youtube, this is that fire from the Funky Headhunter era:

I found another song I never heard before until now, LL Cool J "Pump My S***" which is from the "Mr. Smith" era, can't go wrong with that mid-90s hip hop:
