  • Cover of Top 10: Rappers Bodied On Their Own Shit

  • Cover of Samples Of The Week: July 3rd
    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.

  • Cover of The Progression Of Fantastic Flows
    Soooo, I was assigned an article about tracing the origin of a lot of the flows in hip hop to different regions around the country.

  • Cover of 10 Rappers Who Switched Their Style Up
    Superman isn't Superman if he inexplicably switches from superpowered do-gooder, to some sort of motorcycle-riding anti-hero, to maniacal villain, and back and forth between the extremes. Such mythology is a big part of the hip-hop culture, as well as proper marketing.
  • Cover of Ranking Eminem's 8 Albums From Worst To Best
    It's written in hip-hop lore: The story of a Detroit kid who fought severe personal poverty in hip-hop's battle underground, all the way to mainstream dominance.
