Watch For The Hook

marsha.jpgY’all all know the kid is happily married (My wife is better than yours!) but lately I’ve become a tad bit smitten by the vocal stylings of another woman. Her name is Marsha Ambrosius. But true musical aficionados refer to the fair lady as “The Songstress.” This light-skinded British babe used to be a member of Floetry ’til she went solo on that ass and signed to Aftermath, bitch!

While sitting on Dre’s shelf (we all know how that goes), shorty continues to flaunt her pen game behind the scenes and has more importantly, become the undisputed queen of hip-hop song hooks. As you can see below, I did the research to prove my point so just click the little buttons below and zone out to the soothing sounds. Light up an incense and chomp on them chew sticks! One Love.
