We gave it an A-

Say what you will about music in the two-oh-oh-one; it was a very good year for hip-hop singles. As this compilation amply demonstrates, the jams came in a variety of flavors: the dexterous dope-gothic of D-12’s ”Purple Pills”; Eve’s sexy imprecation ”Let Me Blow Your Mind”; Missy’s paradigm-buster ”Get Ur Freak On,” and Trick Daddy’s cherry boo-ya bomb ”I’m a Thug.” So fresh, so unclean.
