The mixtape is a very reliable vehicle for hip-hop, especially in the digital era where free information spreads feverishly. In some cases, artists give away music that is significantly more awesome than their commercial releases. It just depends.

50 Cent's Floyd Mayweather Clowning Persists
50 Cent is willing to play dirty. We've seen the G-Unit rapper take things just a little too far in many of his beefs, and his latest tiff with Floyd Mayweather is no exception.

Whose Side Are You On? "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" Concert Recap
I Am Music. The title of Lil Wayne’s 2008-2009 national tour needed no further explanation. Wayne, who had just released his Grammy Award-winning album Tha Carter III, had the rap game on lockdown. Using binoculars, it still would’ve been hard to see stragglers such as actor-turned-rapper Drizzy Drake in Wayne’s rearview. Drake, who hadn’t yet released his 2009 breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone, was still a no-name rapper to the greater half of the hip-hop community. Fast forward five years later, oh how the tables have turned.

50 Cent Says He And Common Have "BIG THINGS TO COME"
50 Cent and Common aren't exactly two rappers whom you'd expect to collaborate, as Fif once had a much-publicized feud with Common's longtime pal Kanye West, and the subject matter that they rap about couldn't be more different. Though we don't yet know what their work together will entail, we do know that the pair have, in Fiddy's words, "BIG THINGS TO COME." Yesterday the G-Unit rapper posted an Instagram photo of him and Common and captioned it "Ran into COMMON we on the move BIG THINGS TO COME. #SMSAUDIO." Check it out below.
