    Despite the fact you'll rarely catch them on MTV, music videos are more prevalent than ever, especially in rap.

With that being said, there's a whole lot more to wade through, so we've decided to go through them and pick some of the best videos of the new year.

    This week we’re seeing a new entry with G-Unit’s The Beast Is G-Unit EP hitting the charts. Although it moved under 20k opening week, we doubt the Unit is too upset. 50 Cent had mentioned in a previous interview that the whole reason they kicked off their reunion with EPs was to relieve some of the pressure of dropping an album, and it not doing numbers—basically, it’s easier to start with EPs and work their way towards that album that’ll have a big opening week.

    Ariana's "Honeymoon" tour wouldn't be complete without an appearance from her significant other, Big Sean, who's now coming down off an all-time career high as Dark Sky Paradise hit number one on the charts last week.

    Diplo is a great collaborator. He's collaborated with Switch on Major Lazer before that turned in to a project with Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. He's collaborated with Skrillex most recently on the Jack Ü project. He's collaborated with tons of artists in the hip hop world, along with pop and rock worlds too. He's done work with Justin Bieber, Die Antwoord, Beyonce and Iggy Azealia, and that just shows off his ranger. His best work has been with the likes of M.I.A., 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, among others.

    Big Sean Talks About The Benefits Of Recording "Dark Sky Paradise" In His Home Studio

    While opinions of Big Sean may still be mixed, one thing people seem to be able to agree on is that Dark Sky Paradise is a major step up from the rapper's previous studio albums. A few things fell into place that ensured the record would be Sean's best yet, including a bonafide hit, and Kanye as an active participant in it's recording, but a major part of the reason the record came together so well for Sean was being able to record in the comfort of his own home, which he explained in an interview with Tim Westwood.

    The numbers have arrived for same-day releases from Big Sean and Chris Brown & Tyga. As expected, the former artist moved more than the duo, even exceeding our expectations, however Breezy and Tyga fall squarely within the sales projections.

    Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two.

    Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Sean set to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold

  • Big Sean's Best Wordplay On "Dark Sky Paradise"
    Big Sean's Best Wordplay On "Dark Sky Paradise"
    Feb 24, 2015 at 12:13 PM
    Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever. These rhymes will have you doing double-takes, and by the time the lyrics click, Sean's already bars ahead.

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him. While it may not be an instant classic, it's shaping up to be Big Sean's most cohesive project yet.
