'The Legacy of Hip-Hop & Reggaeton" by Big-J (Hip-Hop Artist from New York City, New York(NY))

"The Legacy of Hip-Hop & Reggaeton," the new CD by rapper Big-J, offers a full repertoire of hip-hop and reggaeton sounds, plus various fusions of both genres with other Latin styles (like salsa). With nineteen original tracks, Big-J gives the listener a taste of what real hip-hop - reminiscent of ODB and Bone Thugs and Harmony, truly is. The opening track, "God Show Me Mercy," speaks of the artist's passion for hip-hop and its effect on his life. The beat is solid and the rhymes are fresh and "in your face." It's the epitome of the concept of the album itself. "Fuego" is a fiery Spanglish reggaeton/hip-hop fusion track which is all about dancing; and given the rhythmic detail and catchy lyrics, it'll definitely get the body movin'. Without giving too much away and ruining the excitement of Big-J's CD, the listener needs to make sure they listen to the album in its entirety; especially the last track.
