The 10 Most Ridiculous Scenes In Action Bronson's "Mr. Wonderful" Mar 23, 2015 at 01:48pm
The cover to Action Bronson's new album, Mr. Wonderful, shows an illustration of Bronson spread-eagle perched atop a golden staircase. It's inspired by a scene from the 1988 American kung-fu film Bloodsport, in which the main character sits in the same pose overlooking Hong Kong as he prepares for battle. Indeed, much of Mr. Wonderful is inspired by cinema.

Every March, the relatively small city of Austin, Texas bursts at the seams for a few weeks to host South by Southwest (SXSW), a music, arts and film festival put on in venues around the downtown.

As the music kicks off in just a little over a week, we're breaking down the ten most promising showcases that have been announced thus far, including two we're sponsoring.

After getting two big albums, Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise and Chris Brown & Tyga's Fan Of A Fan: The Album, last week, this week has been all about the singles. Everyone from Ludacris to Juicy J to Wale seemed to drop off a new track, and so this edition of Samples Of The Week focuses on three of the best we've heard recently.

With an unexpectedly sample-heavy release from Drake blowing up your newsfeeds all week, we have a wealth of tracks to pick from for Samples Of The Week. We could've easily devoted this entire thing to If You're Reading This It's Too Late, but we thought we'd spare you another feature article on Drake. Still, one or two songs from the tape are included on here.

Action Bronson Shares The Artwork For "Mr. Wonderful" Feb 12, 2015 at 10:15am
After tweeting the tracklist for his highly anticipated Mr. Wonderful, Action Bronson just got on Instagram to share the artwork for the project. The CD cover shows a shirtless Bronson perched atop some golden steps, addressing a crowd we can't see, with "Sincerely, Mr. Wonderful" signed in cursive above him. It's designed by FRKO, who did the totally crazy cover art (which shows Bronson riding a laser-headed, missile-firing shark through space) for "Actin Crazy," the second single off Mr. Wonderful.

After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week. That means it's back to covering three big tracks that dropped this week, and this time around, they're taken from all corners of the hip-hop spectrum. First, Action Bronson paired up with The Alchemist for a dusty gem, then Cannibal Ox returned with DOOM in tow for one of their space-age anthems, and the last track on the list... well, you know what the biggest song of the week was.

140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week (January 16) Jan 16, 2015 at 08:07pm
 Nothing too new is going on in the game this past week. In other words, hip-hop is just going right now. And that's not bad: Vince Staples is alive and still hating on Chris Paul, Jay Z still knows how to tweet, Meek Mill is still free and he's #woke. Common and John Legend won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song ("Glory" from Selma), but other than that, things have been a 40 degree day. The tweets are still fire though.

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".

For some, a New Year's Day is just another day — except a little newer. That's the impression you'd get from a quick glance at rap Twitter. Old grievances carried on to 2015. But that's OK, because there are only three things that matter: new Migos, new Kanye West and Plain Pat. Check out the details on 140 Bars Or Less.
