 The World Is Phat - Reggaeton, grime, baile funk, and the globalization of hip-hop. By Martin Edlund
Lil Jon, the Zelig of the American pop charts, has crunked-out reggaeton songs by Daddy Yankee ("Gasolina") and the Cuban-American rapper Pitbull ("Toma" and "Culo"), and he attached his name to a new crunk-meets-grime mixtape produced by U.K. DJ Semtex—stamping both styles with his all-important imprimatur.
It might never have been heard outside their walls if not for the American DJ Diplo (aka Wesley Pentz), who, like some kind of postmodern folk-song hunter, traveled to Rio to investigate the music he first heard on a scratchy tape given to him at a party.
The songs spread throughout the American mixtape underground and eventually found their way onto the playlists of trendsetting urban radio stations like Hot 97 in New York City.

It was the booming bass sound of late-'80s Miami hip-hop that laid the groundwork for crunk; the forthcoming albums by Pitbull and the sly female MC Jacki-O just might put their hometown back on the map.

 Baby Bash : Super Saucy - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Slinging the slang is one of the things Bash does best on the album, along with adding some much needed freshness to the tired crooner/rapper combo, otherwise known as the "this one's for the ladies" numbers.
Two of them start the album - "Baby I'm Back" with Akon and the title track with Avant - but guest shots from Nate Dogg, Paul Wall and Pitbull bring the album back to the hood, a place where Bash excels and calls on his boy, producer Happy Perez.
The album never runs out of ideas and the energy is high all the way to the final track, a sparkling number that includes Bash but is really just a preview of Houston's next big thing, the Boys II Men sounding 3rd Wish.

 Homers - Baby Bash : Super Saucy [Edited] *
On the next track, he turns around and delivers a Dirty South club anthem with E-40 on "Keep It 100." The album hits a fever pitch on shout-out track "Trees," which opens on an invocation, and slips into a reggae call, before serving up an infectious Miami bass/crunk mix with Pitbull and Angel Dust.
After years of honing his style with kindred spirits South Park Mexican, Kid Frost, and others, the gifted Houston, Texas rapper Baby Bash finally released a remarkably diverse solo debut, THA SMOKIN' NEPHEW in 2003.
Bash clearly immersed himself in music from an early age, and his love of hip-hop pours out of every track on his follow-up, SUPER SAUCY.
