    20 References To Horror Flicks In Hip-Hop

    As we've mentioned in previous features, the inspiration rappers draw from film can't be denied, and horror movies are no exception. Films such as American Psycho, The Omen, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Shining, The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby have inspired many of your favorite emcees, and references to them show up regularly in their lyrics. From pioneers such as Public Enemy and the Wu-Tang Clan to contemporary acts such as RiFF RAFF and Durag Dynasty, emcees have been referencing horror movies since the beginning.

    Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time. Though his recent work hasn't been as impactful as earlier efforts, everyone from the kids on the corner to Donald Trump knows his name and probably even has a song or two on rotation.

    Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2.

    Eminem and Rihanna are apparently an unstoppable force. The two teamed up on "Love The Way You Lie" back in 2010, which went on to become Eminem's best selling single, moving six million units in the U.S. alone. Em and RiRi's latest offering isn't doing too bad for itself either, hitting the platinum mark this week.

    Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not sure about will be bolded.

    The past week brought Christmas, which undoubtedly brought sales in all departments, music or otherwise. However not all hip-hop artists were lucky enough to benefit from this Christmas season. Although B.o.B released his album Underground Luxury just in time to enjoy some holiday giving, his album fell completely flat, managing to debut at #22 this week on the Billboard 200, moving only 35k. Compare this to Strange Clouds which did 76k, or better yet, his debut album which moved 84k opening week, and it looks like Bobby Ray's fan base is waning.

    This week we have two new-comers on Charts Don't Lie, the first being buzzing singer Jhene Aiko and the latter, veteran in the game, Bun B. Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a good look for the singer. The EP was projected to move 25-30k, but surpassed 30k with 33,000 units opening week.

    In a new interview with MTV, Kendrick Lamar spoke on meeting Eminem in-studio in Detroit. Unfortunately, he claims no music was recorded.  "It was unexpected, I just went to Detroit and I had a show out there and I got a call saying, 'Em wants you to come to the studio, come to the studio fast.' That was me actually just meeting and greeting,' he explained. "I bumped heads with Eminem in the past, but it was very brief, that was my first time really chopping it up with him, getting to ask all the questions I wanted to ask him.”
