If 2015 was the year of Metro Boomin, 2016 might go down as the year of Mike WiLL Made-It.

As far DJs go, there's no one who sells more music than DJ Khaled. Khaled Khaled (no typo) is far from just a DJ though. The Miami hip-hop magnate is the founder and CEO of We the Best Music Group, which includes artists like Ace Hood and dancehall superstar Movado, and the President of Def Jam South, which helped revive Def Jam as a whole toward the end of the '00s. 
Samples Of The Week: January 30
Samples Of The Week: January 30 Jan 30, 2014 at 12:33pm
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh huh honey."

Review: Ace Hood's "Starvation 3" Jan 24, 2014 at 01:31pm
If the first Starvation mixtape proved to be a metaphor for Ace Hood’s unmitigated hunger for the level of super stardom usually reserved for rappers like his friend, Lil Wayne, then Starvation 3 makes Ace Hood sound as hungry as ever, except this time around, the production values are a lot better. Of course Ace Hood is a lot closer to his goal than he was when the first Starvation installment rolled around.

Charts Don’t Lie: July 28
Charts Don’t Lie: July 28 Jul 28, 2013 at 01:39pm
Our new entry on Charts Don't Lie this week belongs to Ace Hooooood. The rapper constantly on his grind delivered Trials & Tribulations after months of promotion, a huge hit single, "Bugatti," a listening event, among other things. And while it worked in his favor somewhat (it's his best sales to date), it's still not very much of an improvement from his last album, Blood, Sweat & Tears. Trials & Tribulations is Ace's best debut week thus far, but that's with only 34,000 units sold-- not even 10k more than his 2011 album.
