    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 Bridman (who moved from fourth to fifth place on the list), everyone is worth more this year.

    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.

    At this point, the N.W.A. biopic, "Straight Outta Compton", is pretty much under wraps. An extended trailer was just released this week, with actor Corey Hawkins playing the all-important role of Dr. Dre.

    Nate Dogg left an incredible body of work before his time came to an end. He crushed it on his solo projects, alongside 213, and also on dozens and dozens of legendary features. The latter of which is what we're focusing on today. We wanted to take a look at 10 of Nate Dogg's rawest features. He's ran with the obvious likes of Eminem, Fabolous, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, but also with E-40, Shaquille O'Neal, Mos Def and Mobb Deep. He's a fascinating artist to get in to because he roots go back deep to the early 90s when he was doing his part in pioneering the g-funk sound.

    Dr. Dre hasn't come out with any new music in quite a while (although he did co-produce Kendrick Lamar's 2013 Good Kid m.A.A.d. City and had a verse on the hit-song, "The Recipe") but that hasn't stopped him from swimming in cash.

    Many of hip-hop's most classic albums have one thing in common: they were all produced (mostly) by one man. Dr. Dre, J Dilla, the RZA, Kanye West, Madlib, and many more have all laced MCs with a collection of beats that create a cohesive aesthetic through which full LPs can thrive. Singles and one-offs are cool, but to compile 10+ tracks and keep it dope the whole way through makes you a master of hip-hop.

    Brooklyn-born Anthony Cruz isn't one of the 10 greatest rappers of all time. He hasn't released a platinum record and most of his accolades are due to a relationship with Nas. However, most critics who know their stuff will tell you that AZ is vastly underrated, and even albums like Illmatic would have suffered had he never picked up the mic.
