    It’s tough to get 100 percent behind the Wu-Tang Clan these days. No one can deny their influence and run of classic records in the 90s, but drama, stylistic confusion, and album delays have plagued the crew for the past half-decade.

    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.

    Hype Williams may have only directed four videos in 2014, but that doesn't mean we can't all remember a time when every dope hip-hop video seemed to have Hype's fingerprints on it. Countless legendary MCs collaborated with Hype Williams, including the likes of Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Busta Rhymes and A Tribe Called Quest, and also R&B stars like Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Usher and Mary J. Blige. He is definitely the most prolific video director in the hip-hop world.

    James Yancey accomplished more with his 32 years on this planet than most people could do with 5 lifetimes. He cultivated a sound that has influenced the finest producers of today. Enough can't be said about this man's influence. Dudes like ?uestlove and Kanye West, who are amongst the most influential members of the hip-hop culture, damn-near worship the ground this dude walked on. From his days as a youth to the days of making beats while laid up in his hospital bed, J. Dilla did nothing but advance the culture.

    Bobby Shmurda's video for "Hot Nigga" created quite a stir earlier this summer, instantly creating a meme in the "Shmoney Dance", and inspiring a flock of labels to encircle the young New Yorker. Since then, Shmurda has signed a deal with EPIC, and "Hot Nigga" has been getting plenty of traction outside of YouTube streams. We've already heard a slew of artists create their own versions of the track, and as Shmurda shared with HNHH in an exclusive interview, there's an all-star remix in the works.

The music that spurred on this incident? Eminem's Slim Shady LP, obviously.

    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.

It's not just like an overnight thing. We've been trying to make this THE record to bring back Busta in a major way."
