    Busta Rhymes Broke The Windshield Of A Tour Bus The First Time He Heard Eminem

    If any rapper was going to shatter a windshield by banging their head, it would be Busta Rhymes. The "Break Your Neck" MC is clearly a fan of the violent head bang, and in a hilarious new interview, he reveals that the dance move once decimated the entire windshield on Wyclef Jean's tour bus. 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. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    The world was waiting for Busta Rhymes and Eminem's "Calm Down" all weekend, as Busta announced the track last Friday and dropped it on Monday. What we got was exactly what was expected of the syllabically gifted pair: a thrilling, battle rap-esque epic. Before the track was even released, Busta caught up with Power 106's Ricki Martinez to talk about working with Em on the song.

    Some of the earliest criticisms of Eminem centered around his many references to his daughter Hailie, who was just a toddler when songs like "'97 Bonnie & Clyde" (the lyrics of which had Em taking her and her recently-murdered mother out for a drive) first dropped. If Em's original detractors were to be believed, this girl's life was in danger of being ruined, but now it seems that quite the opposite has happened. Hailie Mathers, now 18, has graduated her high school with top marks and is headed to Michigan State University.

    Daylyt has seemingly appeared at the top of the game from out of nowhere. After making his television debut last week on the Shady Films reality series "Road to Total Slaughter," the battle rapper turned heads on Ab-Soul’s These Days… with an extended verse hidden on the album's closing track. The hype surrounding the rapper, meanwhile, keeps on coming in.

  • The Progression Of Fantastic Flows
    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. Originally, I thought that would be fairly easy to do, and to a certain extent it is, but the article really went in a different direction the more research I was doing. While there are clear regional influences in today's music, it's almost minimal in the grand scheme of things. Hip Hop as a genre was born in New York, did a lot of growing up out in California, and has even spent some formative years in places like Houston, Chicago and Miami.

    Eminem is no stranger to receiving accolades, and today he has yet another to add to his growing list of achievements. While his latest album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, is already 2x platinum, his older music continues to rack up sales as well, going way beyond the average.

    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. Any marketing novice and comic book savant knows that consistency is key to building one's image/brand. A rapper who constantly switches up can lose a fan base or market, or even worse: he or she gets labeled as a fake for wearing different styles (there's nothing worse than not being real).

    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. There's arguably been no other hip-hop star that's reached the level of cultural omnipresence that Eminem has at the turn of the millennium. He was hip-hop's greatest hopes and society's biggest fears all in one.

    Earlier in the month, it was announced that Eminem would be making hip hop history by becoming the very first rapper to headline Wembley stadium.  Not only that, when tickets went on sale last week, Em managed to sell out the gigantic venue almost immediately, resulting in a second date being added. The opening act for the momentous occasion has now been announced, and it happens to be none other than Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future cohorts.

    Eminem holds a few titles as a rapper, one of which being the best-selling hip hop artist of all time (not to mention the second-best selling male artist of all time, only bested by... Garth Brooks?). The Detroit emcee is about to conquer yet another feat, as he will be headlining Wembley Stadium on July 11th, making him the very first rap artist to do so.

    Eminem teased us recently about a big Texas-related announcement coming on 4/22, and as we hypothesized, the announcement is that the rapper will be headlining this year's Austin City Limits festival. Alongside Em, OutKast will be headlining as well-- if you're located in Austin, that in and of itself sounds like something not to miss out on.

    On paper, recording a song for a film soundtrack is considered the ultimate form of selling out. The music itself is literally used as promotional material for a larger product. Music money is big, but movie money is on another level (ask Ludacris, who hasn't released an album since "Fast Five"). That being said, let's remove the negative stigma generally associated with the term "selling out" and call soundtrack inclusions what they really are: a honing in on a given artist's particular skill set to create something universally appealing to an established fan base.

    Eminem may be headlining a stadium tour with Rihanna, but it looks as though he's got something else big cooking, although we won't find out what until tomorrow. Em isn't so big on his socials, but he took to his Instagram account to post a photo of himself on a horse in cowboy mode, with the caption, "Texas - "Square Dance" with me! Announcement coming 4/22."

    Drugs are everywhere in hip-hop. Whether they're mentioned on the radio, seen in music videos, or smuggled into concerts, drugs are pretty much unavoidable in the genre. Weed, lean, pills, coke, booze, shrooms, you name it, dope's not to hard to find. Many rappers, like Juicy J or Lil Wayne, have made it clear in their music that they love getting fucked up. Despite the popularity of drugs in hip-hop culture, not every rapper partakes in popping mollys or getting fried.
