Dr. Dre is one of the most legendary figures in hip hop history. From his early days with the influential N.W.A. through to his most recent release Compton, the 50-year old artist has conquered multiple industries. For us, his most important contributions have been to rap music. 
Eminem's Celebrity Disses: A Chronology
Eminem's Celebrity Disses: A Chronology Aug 21, 2014 at 04:29am
It's been well over a decade since Eminem reveled in the center of seemingly every fiery controversy in popular culture. Never before had an artist dragged so many bystanders into his path of destruction. His assaults were ghastly, yet outstanding displays of rhyme, cadence and character. In the years of his prime, many would step foolishly into his crossfire, while others simply had it coming. The rest caught stray bullets.

50 Cent Thinks Eminem Is Underrated, "More Hood Than So Many People Out There" Mar 20, 2014 at 05:30pm
50 Cent recently sat down with Noisey to talk about his upcoming album, Animal Ambition, as well as his frequent collaborator, Eminem. Despite his massive success, 50 described Em as "underrated", which he said was due to his race. "Em is really underrated because people have always been talking about him like, "The WHITE rapper Eminem" instead of just "the rapper."
Everything Dr. Dre Has Produced Since His Last Album
Everything Dr. Dre Has Produced Since His Last Album Aug 4, 2015 at 01:32pm
On Friday, Dr. Dre will drop Compton: The Soundtrack, his first project since 1999's 2001. He's kept busy in the 16 years inbetween, executive producing hip hop classics like Eminem's Marshall Mathers LP, 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin', & The Game's The Documentary and contributing to the making of hundreds of other projects. He hasn't done it all by himself -- credit must be given to his frequent co-producers, such as Mark Batson, Mel-Man, & Mike Elizando -- but Dr.
Fat Joe Passed On Signing Eminem Six Times
Fat Joe Passed On Signing Eminem Six Times Sep 8, 2015 at 01:30pm
Eminem chronicled the first chapter of his rags-to-riches tale in the 2002 movie 8 Mile. The movie didn't get as far as the period when he was shopping around his demo tape in hopes of getting a record deal. One such recipient of an early Eminem demo was Terror Squad don Fat Joe. In a new interview, Joe revealed he passed on Eminem not once, but six times. 
5 Times The Grammys Got 'Best Rap Album' Wrong
5 Times The Grammys Got 'Best Rap Album' Wrong Feb 6, 2015 at 10:45am
With the Grammys coming up this Sunday, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the times they have upset us, the hip-hop community, the most. Because nobody is perfect and the Grammys are certainly no exception.  While there are a few time they got the 'Best Rap Album' right (and we will take a look at the flip side of this list later today, so keep an eye out), there have also been quite a few instances where they picked the absolute wrong album, upon general consensus.
Tech N9ne Reveals Eminem Collaboration In The Works For "Special Effects"
Tech N9ne Reveals Eminem Collaboration In The Works For "Special Effects" Jan 19, 2015 at 09:53am
Last week Tech N9ne announced a release date for his upcoming album Special Effects. The album is due out on May 5th, and while Tech may be putting the finishing touches on it right now, he's still missing one very essential verse. During a live show at the Diamond Ballroom, Tech revealed that he's awaiting a verse from none other than Eminem.
Top 10: Sophomore Albums Of The 2000s
Top 10: Sophomore Albums Of The 2000s Jul 21, 2014 at 12:20pm
In music we tend to glorify the debut album, always craving the newest and shiniest thing out. The downside of that is usually we're slightly disappointed in the follow up sophomore album, possibly what led to the phenomenon known as the "sophomore slump".
Review: Yelawolf's "Love Story"
Review: Yelawolf's "Love Story" Apr 23, 2015 at 05:01pm
After Yelawolf’s first major-label album Radioactive proved to be, well, just that; and failed to meet the standards set by his 2010 mixtape Trunk Muzik, it felt as though - with his second effort Love Story - an explanation or apology was due. He seemingly traded in his trademark mud-coated country roots for pop-pandering.
Eminem Says Hip Hop "In A Good Place Right Now"
Eminem Says Hip Hop "In A Good Place Right Now" Jul 17, 2015 at 05:12pm
In a new interview with the New York Times, Eminem stated his belief that hip hop is in a good place in 2015. The interview mostly addressed Eminem's role and experience working on the soundtrack for the upcoming 50 Cent-produced film Southpaw, but also took the time to share his opinion on the state of the genre. Here's what he had to say:
The Progression Of Fantastic Flows
The Progression Of Fantastic Flows Jun 17, 2014 at 02:12pm
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.
Review: Shady Records "Shady XV"
Review: Shady Records "Shady XV" Dec 8, 2014 at 12:02pm
Fifteen years of Shady Records represents an unusual time for rap music, transitioning out of the shiny suit era and into a bubble featuring new names. Aside from D12 and Obie Trice releases, the label’s existence was mostly tied to Eminem signing a certain Queens MC.
20 Dope Hip-Hop Songs Made For Film
20 Dope Hip-Hop Songs Made For Film Apr 21, 2014 at 01:26pm
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 & Rihanna Do The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge On Stage In Detroit
Eminem & Rihanna Do The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge On Stage In Detroit Aug 24, 2014 at 12:43am
Dr. Dre had one of the more memorable ice bucket challenges we've seen thus far, and the hip hop mogul decided to pass the task on to Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. We saw K.Dot's video earlier in the week, and now Eminem has taken the plunge-- on stage at The Monster Tour no less. That's right, Em got the very special honor of having Rihanna douse him in ice water, for which he quickly returned the favor. From the footage we've seen, it's not clear who the two stars have challenged, but chances are they've picked some high profile candidates.

Top 5 "Shook Ones" Freestyles
Top 5 "Shook Ones" Freestyles Mar 30, 2015 at 06:05pm
Fabolous' latest giveaway is not your average freestyle--it was a major statement. Most rappers, wisely, would shy away from such a beat--"Shook Ones", the lead off Mobb Deep's legendary The Infamous. But Fabo gave it a good shot. The best? You decide.

Dr. Dre Wants To Tour Europe With Snoop Dogg, Eminem & Kendrick Lamar Oct 11, 2015 at 11:51pm
Snoop Dogg guested on Dr. Dre's Beats 1 radio show "The Pharmacy" last night (Oct. 10), and as the legendary duo reminisced about their classic collaborations, Dre spoke of a wild concoction that he wants to employ in the future. European hip-hop heads will be happy to know that one of Dre's future dreams is to take a full live show to Europe and bring his most renowned collaborators with him -- Snoop, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar.
