    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who don't believe every hip-hop video has to be about models sitting on the hood of a rented car.

    Emerging from the ghettos of New York City, specifically the Bronx, in the '70's, Hip-Hop became the voice for a people who had been ignored for too long. It echoed the conditions African- Americans were living in - and still are, to an extent - and their daily struggles. Acts like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five laid down the roots for what would become, slowly, the genre that permeated global society; Hip-Hop, over time, became the method that people of all religions, cultures, socio-economic classes could speak through. Hip-Hop became a voice for the ignored.

It is possible that their name will simply appear further down the list ('additional headliners' are mentioned).

    Lets be real, most of us can't even afford to buy CDs at retail value. At least that's what we tell ourselves as we pirate just about every record we can get our hands on. That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances. "Bullshit! 50 is streaming his SXSW performance for free on March 11th," you might say. Well, first off, stop being a smart ass. Second, while it's true you might be able to "see" Mr.

    Last week, the world got an unprecedented look inside of Schoolboy Q's various addictions on Oxymoron, an album named after the painkiller Oxycodone.

    It's almost time for the ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi chart invasion, but not just yet. We received the first week sales projection for both rappers respective releases, Oxymoron and Satellite Flight, and both are on track to sell a solid amount of albums. Q is looking like he'll do some damage with 150,000-160,000 copies projected, and thus debut at #1 which definitely isn't a bad look, while Kid Cudi will come close behind with 90,000-95,000 copies.

    In early 1999, a white rapper came out of relative obscurity and pissed off a lot of people. He was a white kid from Detroit, backed by a legend in Dr. Dre, and savvy music -industry heavyweight Jimmy Lovine. Who was this bleach blond asshole liberally speaking about slitting his father’s throat and stuffing his baby’s Mama into the trunk of his car? The answer was in the record’s first single. The album was definitely one of a kind. Love it or hate it, it was a pivotal moment in the annals of Hip Hop.
