Crank That (Soulja Boy)
Label: Collipark / Interscope
Communication is obviously very important to this young MC: Not only has he named his entire album after his contact info (take that, Mike Jones!), he's included an ode to his Sidekick (the aptly named "Sidekick," a song about how he wrote said song on said Sidekick). But apparently, what he really wants to do is dance: From the choreography-spitting "Snap and Roll" to lean-wit-it-for-the-ladies ballad "Soulja Girl," nearly half the tracks here are snap-dance instruction manuals, featuring uber-minimalist beats and Mr. 'Em's monotonic flow.
