Well, I got to....let's say "preview" this CD a little early, so here is my review before it comes out Tuesday!

This CD is composed of a bunch of "punk" bands covering Rap+R&B songs. Most of the songs were very well done. I love these kinds of covers and CDs, because it is just so awesome. The best song on the CD is by far "Still Fly" by The Devil Wears Prada, which is a Big Tymers cover. The song is a "screamo" cover, and it is great, because The Devil Wears Prada is one of the best bands out anyways. None of the bands on this CD are really punk, but they cover the songs well. There are a few I don't care for, as they are very soft and the artists didn't add a lot to the songs, but overall the album is great. A list of song tracks is:

"Put Yo Hood Up" - Set Your Goals (Lil Jon) (4:59)"Got Your Money" - Say Anything (Ol' Dirty Bastard) (4:15)"I Wish" - The Secret Handshake (Skee-Lo) (2:52)"Men in Black" - Forever the Sickest Kids (Will Smith) (3:05)"California Love" - My American Heart (2Pac) (4:16)"I Wanna Love You" - The Maine (Akon) (3:03)"Kryptonite (I'm on It)" - Emanuel (Purple Ribbon All-Stars) (4:30)"The Seed" - Person L (The Roots) (4:22)"Stay Fly" - The Devil Wears Prada (Big Tymers) (4:55)"Umbrella" - All Time Low (Rihanna) (3:49)"Notorious Thugs" - Scary Kids Scaring Kids (The Notorious B.I.G.) (7:23)"Nuthin' but a "G" Thang" - The Escape Frame (Dr. Dre) (3:30)"Gin and Juice" - Hot Rod Circuit (Snoop Dogg) (3:44)"Hey Ya!" - Lorene Drive (OutKast) (4:24)"Tennessee" - New Found Glory (Arrested Development) (4:05)In my opinion, numbers 1, 2, 7, and 9 are the best.

Overall, this is a really good album and I would recommend getting it. I did wish there were more "metal" or "screamo" covers though.
