Mark Ronson - Here Comes the Fuzz

This is one of the hottest, modern party albums and I fuckin love it. The whole things plays just like a DJ were mixing each song into each other at a club. Perfect for throwing on at a house party and just letting it play on through. Not to mention Ooh Wee is one of my favorite party tracks period.

The album features eleven bangin tracks produced by English up and comer Mark Ronson, including a preview intro in which he raps himself and an outro. Ronson is probably best known for his production on Amy Winehouse's acclaimed sophomore album Back to Black. In 2008 Ronson won a Grammy award for the "Producer of the Year, Non-Classical" category, not to mention the various awards Ms. Winehouse earned which included production credits from Ronson. Songs from the album Ronson produced include "Rehab", "You Know I'm No Good" and "Back to Black". Ronson also produced the tracks "Devil's Pie", "Tell a Story" and "Build Me Up" off of Rhymefest's debut album Blue Collar and "Fried Chicken" off of Nasir Jones' most recent effort Nigger.

Ronson teamed up with various hip-hop all stars, starting with a southern style debut track with Nappy Roots, a straight club banger featuring Ghostface Killah, Trife Da God and Nate Dogg, a chick/dance song featuring Aya who I've never heard of ha, an alternative type of party track featuring Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, another dance track featuring Sean Paul who I usually can't stand but he's hot on here, then takes a little break from the dance atmosphere for a storytelling track from Saigon, then two hype tracks in a row, the first featuring Mos Def and M.O.P. and the second featuring Freeway and Nikki Costa, moves into a mesh of 2000s era alternative rock and rap with Rhymefest making an appearance, another kind of chicks dance track with Daniel Merriweather who I've never heard of but he's an R&B singer, he's nice on the track, and ending with a chill track featuring the one and only Q-Tip.
