Spank Rock - YoYoYoYoYo

One of my favorite hip hop albums in recent years. Spank Rock bust out the party rap (influenced heavily by Baltimore club music) in full effect all while maintaining an underground vibe as well. Naeem Juwan's lyrics are hilarious and ironically raunchy mainly inspired by 2 Live Crew (ex. the chorus of "Coke & wet, bitch, guns, nigga, holla!" on the appropriately titled "Coke & Wet") while XXXChange's production is one of the true highlights of the record. The classically trained producer throws out some incredibly clever beats that never sound repetitive or cliched. Easily one of the best producers right now. Check out their live show as well if you want to have a good time.
