Anyone heard this song yet? Truth Hurts is the new artist on Dre's Aftermath label and this song features Rakim (who is now also on that label, fact fans)

The song is weird as hell and you either love it or hate it- but I LOVE it. I'm all for the original stuff, and that Indian sounding sample just sounds right in that song.

If you know the song, let me know what you think :smile:

Oh yeah i heard this at the beginning of the year - it samples a bollywood song and is pretty cool. I think this artist was found by Dr-dre years back but has only come to the commercial rap scene for about 6 months. It sounds a bit weird for a rap song (mainly as the chorus is in hindi!) but hopefully this is not the beginning of a new trend in hiphop of artists using different languages!

Maybe Missy started a trend with the sample in Get Ur Freak On... I like it anyway, we need some crazy edgy stuff in R&B.

I've heard it, it's a great song. I posted a topic about it in the Soul/R'n'B/Hip Hop Forum.

Well i know that i've said it before but it is a great track - perhaps the best hiphop song of the year so far.

It only reached #9 in the US! I thought it would've done a lot better.

Isn't Truth Hurts a protigee of Dr. Dre - his first RnB artist, who apparently has a baby.
