Wow, sad day. This is going to be the last one of these posts that we'll ever do. Anyways, XXL's final print edition is about to hit the shelves, and the cover's just been revealed. G-Unit grace that cover. Having previously appeared on there in May of 2008 (sans Kidd Kidd, who made the cut this time), the Unit are here this time accompanied by the headline "Break Ups 2 Makes Ups Of Rap's Ultimate Crew."

Hip-Hop emerged out of a collective struggle against oppression, poverty, and pain.  Recently, rappers have been teaming up in order to promote an end to police brutality, even raising money for victims like Mike Brown, and spreading digital campaigns to promote awareness of the issue. This isn't the first time we've seen rappers speak up against violence in their music, so we've gathered several examples from recent times as well as the past in this list.

Among a bevy of much poppier artists, G-Unit performed at this past weekend's iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, and while backstage, the crew's de facto leader shared some of his thoughts on the gradual decline in record sales we've seen in the past few years.

We're currently awaiting first week sale numbers for Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, which is supposed to move around 90k-100k. Even though these are just projections at the moment, it's extremely unlikely The Snowman will be able to beat the sales of his last album TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition, which moved 233,000 copies when it dropped three years ago.

After he proved he was a bankable rapper, 50 Cent started his own imprint and made G-Unit his first priority. For a while Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Fiddy were consistently putting out quality music that fed the streets.

Well, this is a welcome surprise. After releasing a steady stream of quality remixes--and two original tracks--over the past few months, G-Unit now returns with their first project since reuniting in June.

Look for production credits to make their way online soon.
Samples Of The Week: July 31
Samples Of The Week: July 31 Jul 31, 2014 at 12:17pm
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".

Many Men: A History Of G-Unit Beefs Jul 2, 2014 at 08:15pm
Perhaps it would have been easier to make a list of every rapper that 50 and the crew haven't had any altercations with over the course of their 10 years in the game--it certainly would have required less writing.
50 Cent Just Sold A TV Show To Comedy Central
50 Cent Just Sold A TV Show To Comedy Central Jun 29, 2014 at 12:15pm
"Go 'head and switch the style up/And if they hate, then let 'em hate and watch the money pile up" is quickly becoming less of a lyric from 50 Cent's "In Da Club" and more of a mantra that the entrepreneur lives his life by. If you take "style" to mean "profession," Fif's switched it up a lot, going from rapping to acting to advertising to, most recently, executive producing the Starz show "Power." It seems like he's taken a liking to the TV production life, as he just announced that he sold a show to Comedy Central.

We all know G-Unit is working on a new album for the fall, but could we be seeing a mixtape beforehand as well? According to Fif we are.  In a new interview with Jenny Boom Boom, 50 Cent spoke on several issues going on his life right now, but the one thing that stuck out in the interview was the information retaining the upcoming G-Unit album, and mixtape. Yes, mixtape. Around the 17:40 mark, Fif reveals that the G-Unit album is due out late November/early December and they are also working on a new mixtape which we assume will come out before that.
Hip-Hop's Fashion Evolution
Hip-Hop's Fashion Evolution Jun 20, 2014 at 03:35pm
Jay Z made a song dedicated to Tom Ford last year, one of Harlem's hottest rappers wears strictly skinny jeans (A$AP Rocky), and one of the industry's most talked about rappers (Kanye West) is addicted to high-fashion. A little over a decade ago, the genre's finest openly wore baggy clothing, throwback jerseys, and du-rags. It's an understatement to say hip-hop's fashion sense has changed a bit.

Game remains one of the most consistent rappers in the game. He delivered an extremely solid album with his last project, Jesus Piece, and it sounds like he's going just as hard if not harder on his next project, if his latest leak "Bigger Than Me" is any indication. While visiting DJ Skee, Game cleared up that Blood Money La Familia is not his sixth studio album, he says it's just a compilation for Blood Money.
