State University of New York professor Dawn R. Hobbs recently concluded that 92 percent of the songs that made it to the Billboard Top 10 in 2009 contained some form of "reproductive messages."

8Ball and MJG (due at Casselman's this Sunday, September 4) are one of the dopest hip-hop acts to ever come out of the south.
