Lil Wayne's "No Ceilings 2" Tracklist Revealed
After hitting us with a trailer to increase the anticipation and excitement for No Ceilings 2 last night, Weezy F returns this afternoon with a tracklist, so we know it's real. The highly anticipated mixtape will serve as a follow-up to the much-beloved first No Ceilings, and thus it's got quite a reputation to live up too. The tracklist is stacked though, so let's hope Weezy didn't spare quality for quantity.

The art of rapping started off in the form of spoken word and poetry, but you don't hear a lot of "poetry" in modern-day popular rap. This could be for a multitude of reasons. For starters, the club doesn't want to put you to sleep. And Neither does the radio. For whatever reason, songs that make you think don't seem to have wheels in 2015. But that's okay though, 'cause we got you.

Review: Curren$y "Pilot Talk III"
After a near-decade of hustling, Curren$y has finally landed his prominent role in the rap scene. It wasn’t easy work, but anyone who has watched the New Orleans-native go from Lil Wayne’s sidekick to stoner rap’s most consistent contributor will tell you that much. For his third Pilot Talk album, Curren$y didn’t reinvent the wheel, but he definitely refined it. His vision is clearer now more than ever: funny rhymes + some swaggy braggadocio + luxurious production = success. It also equates to a pleasant listen each time.

Curren$y built the foundation of his following on a legendary run of mixtapes that started around the 2008 era. It was seven (count 'em!) tapes of spitting over classic hip hop beats with a fresh flow that poised him to be the next big thing in New Orleans hip hop. Tapes like Higher Than 30,000 Feet, Super Tecmo Bowl, Welcome to the Winner’s Circle, and Fast Times at Ridgemont Fly are still blueprints for what a mixtape should be. They were lighthearted, accessible, and quickly followed up with more material.
Review: Curren$y's "The Drive In Theatre"
Only a handful of artists release as much content as Curren$y does. Some can match the quantity, but none can top the quality. Spitta Andretti is known for releasing album-quality mixtapes at a constant rate, giving fans all they can digest. 2013’s New Jet City was one of the hottest mixtapes of the year, and his latest offering The Drive In Theatre doesn’t disappoint either.
