Don't forget about Crime Mob

As we recount the heroes and villains, winners and losers of 2007, don't forget about Crime Mob, the teenage crunksters who dropped a solid sophomore effort, Hated on Mostly, way back in March.

Sure, "Rock Yo Hips" was no "Knuck if You Buck" or "Stilettos (Pumps)." But at least it wasn't totally wack like "Coffee Shop." (Sorry, Yung Joc, but it's true.) And instead of making a bunch of outrageous claims about how they represent the youth (Shop Boyz and Soulja Boy, take a bow) Crime Mob quietly earned our respect by making a good album. (Except for that song "Circles," which samples the Friends of Distinction chestnut and is a little corny.)

Diamond and Princess may be the two most talented female MCs to hit the mainstream since Remy Martin back in 2004, and they didn't swing on any stripper poles to prove it. Judging by their glamorous new publicity stills, which you can view in abundance on Diamond and Princess's respective MySpace pages, that's probably going to change. You can't stop teenage hormones, I guess.
