Here’s a new installment of New World (Au)der in honor of Grammy-nominated best rap albums Recovery and The Blueprint 3.


If you’ve missed past New World (Au)ders, here’s how they work: I flip your favorite joints in the order they should’ve been when you copped them. These NEW WORLD AUDERS are in honor of this year’s Grammy nominees for Best Rap Album. Check how I flipped the order of two nominees.


Cold Wind Blows – I’m an advocate of starting big. Can’t front. This one is right where its supposed to be. *mean face* from the gate.
Almost Famous – ALLL about the hook on this one
So Bad
W.T.P. – You gotta let Em rep what got him here.
On Fire
Not Afraid
Seduction – Love the Jay-Z’esque “Aw”
Talkin’ 2 Myself feat. Kobe
Going Through Changes
Love the Way You Lie feat, Rihanna
No Love feat. Lil Wayne
Cinderella Man
You’re Never Over – Proof dedication

In a NEW WORLD AUDER first, I had to banish a couple of joints to “hidden track” land. #IMO this album is two tracks too long, so I’m removing the two weakest joints off of the official track listing.
Space Bound
25 to Life

As Real As It Gets
Run This Town feat. Kanye West & Rihanna
A Star Is Born feat. J. Cole – I just let those first three. #selfexplanatory
So Ambitious feat. Pharrell – The Dame shots never get old.
What We Talking About – Who’dve thunk it. Two Dame shots in a row.
Thank You – It took every bit of will I had to not blast off with this one. Plus: more shots *rrrahh rrraahh*
Empire State Of Mind feat. Alicia Keys
Venus vs. Mars
Hate feat. Kanye West – Can’t front I had to find my ear on this one, but this track is brilliant.
On To The Next One feat. Swizz Beatz – just prepping you for the next HOV joint
Already Home feat. Kid Cudi – You do realize that with Ye producing 7 joints, this album was the ultimate prelude to WATCH THE THRONE
Young Forever feat. Mr. Hudson

Off That feat. Drake – I lost interest in Timbaland’s proux a loooooong time ago.  Plus this is a waste of a Drizzy cameo.  Unfortunately I had to banish this joint to “hidden track” land. #nofillerallowed
Reminder – *thinking* *recalculating* Ummmm……yeah you can keep this one. I can’t take the hook.
