Smooth-voiced R&B singer Eijay (pronounced A-J) is a rare breed -- in his credits, he thanks "the haters for breaking into my studio and stealing my equipment. I really needed that reality check. Peace!!" His CD Embryonic Soul is a strong mix of Dre-ish grooves and old-school slow jams, occasionally punctuated by guest MCs, the best being Dirty Lo, who comes the closest of any rapper out there to approximating George Steinbrenner on Seinfeld!
