“Jay-Z is the greatest rapper alive. Anyone who was in attendance at his sold-out KeyArena concert Saturday night can attest to that fact. Hova, Young Hov, Jigga, Hovito, whatever you call him, Shawn Carter is on top of the rap game and there were no signs of him stepping down any time soon during his career-spanning two-hour show.” Seattle Post Intelligencer (KeyArena Review), October 19, 2009

Young Jeezy’s latest studio effort, The Recession, debuted at #1 in September of last year, moving 260,000 units in its first week to give the rapper his second #1 album.

Trey Songz released his third studio album, Ready, late last year.  The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the top 20 hit “Successful,” a track which features Canadian entertainer Drake.
