Cassie may not have the best vocal range, but I'll tell you what she does have. A good a** team of writers and producers around her.
After being relatively quiet since her Bad Boy debut in 2006, she presents her new tape RockAByeBaby, which features guest appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Jeremih, French Montana, Fabolous, Pusha T, Ester Dean and more. What's more impressive are the multiple writing credits from Cocaine 80s frontman James Fauntleroy, Jeremih as well as the production from TDE's Sounwave and Cali saxophonist Terrace Martin. Hate if you want, but I'll give this a d(^_^)b guarantee.

French Montana ft. Nicki Minaj, Wyclef Jean, Edley Shine & Elephant Man - "Freaks" (DJ Suss One Remix)
French Montana's "Freaks" is undoubtedly a hit record, but when I listen to it I can't help but think that it's missing a key reggae element. Thankfully DJ Suss One recruited producer JButtah and respected artists of the genre (Wyclef, Edley Shine and Elephant Man) to refix "Freaks" allowing Nicki Minaj's verse to lead the way.

It's been a while since we've received a full solo project from Pusha T, but 2013 will be the year the G.O.O.D. Music emcee floods us with quality tracks. First up is his mixtape Wrath Of Caine, and next up will be his solo debut LP My Name Is My Name.
Enjoy the project below, which features verses from Rick Ross, French Montana, Troy Ave, Wale, and more. My favorite so far: "Revolution" produced by The Neptunes.

I took a little sabbatical from blogging late last year to shift my focus a little more from reporting what kind of music was out there to creating. While I plan to continue sharing great music with all my loyal G's out there, look forward to more mixes which I intend to make better with each and every edition.
During my brief break, I put together The Re-Up, which a lot of people seemed to enjoy and pass around. Since it's the weekend it's the perfect time to give this a spin and take a nice, healthy shot of Turnup juice. Check out the rest of the repertoire on Mixcloud and be sure to let your support be known!
