    Natural Born Hustlers: Top 5 Rapper CEOs

    The rap game is filled with natural born hustlers, that much is undeniable. It is truly astonishing, looking at how so many MCs, since the inception of the genre itself, have successfully used hip-hop as a platform to become titans of multiple industries. Even though Jay Z (spoiler alert: he’s on this list) was the one who coined the phrase “I’m not a businessman. I’m a business, man,” he has not been the only rapper to make it a reality.

    Taylor Swift has been reluctant to join streaming services in the past, but as we saw recently, T-Swift got Apple Music to pony up royalties for artists during it's three-month trial period. Taylor returned the favor by allowing the streaming service to have the sole stream of her album 1989 which she famously refused to put on Spotify.

    It's difficult to do release a worthwhile sequel to a classic album 10 years removed, but it has been done. Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 is one of the few projects of it's kind to live up to the title, but Game's Documentary 2 seems poised to do the same.

    In the past few weeks, we've been stoking our curiosity about rappers' new albums by coming up with wish lists of the various things we'd think would ensure dopeness. We've already dreamed up idealized versions of Childish Gambino's upcoming project and Lil Wayne's quickly approaching Free Weezy Album, and now it's time to tackle a long in-the-works sequel to one of Cali's most celebrated albums of the 2000s.

    It's been rumored for a while that Drake and Pharrell would be contributing to Apple Music in one way or another, and the popular theory was that the artists would be contributing to a radio service provided by the company. This has all truned out to be true, as Zane Lowe (who made his way from BBC1, and will also host his own show) has revealed that Drake, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Elton John, Disclosure and the one and only Jaden Smith will all have their own programs through Beats 1 Radio.

    10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time

    The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

    Slim the Mobster was once a promising protege of Dr. Dre, before the rapper's career was halted by a jail stint. Shortly after the rapper began working on his War Music follow-up, S.O.O.N. (Something Out Of Nothing), he was hauled off to jail on multiple charges. After spending the last two years behind bars, Slim is once again a free man, and reunited with his former Aftermath labelhead, Dre. The rapper tweeted a photo from their studio session, confirming his prison release.

    Eminem's lengthy career has been littered with various endeavors, but the projects he attaches himself too always seem to make sense-- he's not out here making frivolous moves just 'cause. From producing for select artists, to forming his own label Shady Records, to working on movies like "8 Mile," it's usually something that hits home for Em. It was announced the other month that the rapper would be executive producing the upcoming film, "Southpaw," which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whittaker and Rachel McAdams.

    With the release of his newest album Bush this past week, Snoop Dogg dived into the funk world alongside producer Pharrell, but funk is hardly a new look for the California MC. Along with help from OGs like Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson and MCs like Kendrick Lamar, T.I. and Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg was able to deliver 40 minutes of straight funk, which happens to be the music that influenced his entire career.

    In recent times, Forbes' annual list of hip hop's five wealthiest artists has become less of a race and more of an established pantheon, and this year's no different. With the exception of two artists switching between the fourth and fifth spots, 2015's list is identical to last year's. With the exception of Birdman (who moved from fourth to fifth place on the list), everyone is worth more this year.

    Ranking Fabolous' Friday Freestyles From Worst To Best
    Apr 24, 2015 at 03:10pm
    The first time I ever heard Fab was when I was 12. I heard “Can’t Deny It” and realized  that he was beyond nice. You see, Fabolous is a gladiator. You can throw him in the octagon and he’ll walk out unscathed. I always refer to him as the Vince Carter of rap because at any moment, he could unleash an array of tricks that could leave you in awe. Fab is an extraordinary talent that can mesmerize you with his pen game. Lyrically, he’s been as consistent as anybody else in the rap game. Every time he drops a bar, you’re liable to do the ugly face.

    "How nigga? My last album was The Chronic." Sure, it took Dre almost seven years to follow up his classic debut with another album, but along the way, he became one of the industry's biggest moguls. He discovered Slim Shady and built an empire around him with Aftermath (and Shady) Records.

    Despite being out of the music game for some time, Dr. Dre's got quite a bit on his plate. The massive success of Beats By Dre has made him a near-billionaire, but he's still working with Apple to create new ideas, most recently announcing that the Beats streaming service would be re-envisioned and re-launched later this year.
