As soon as the "If Young Metro don't trust you, I'ma shoot you" drop appeared in the middle of Kanye's MSG performance last week, an audible "Damn..." came from the crowd seated in the theater with me. 'A Ye and Future song?!', we all asked ourselves, struggling to calculate just how many flame emojis we'd have to use when describing the track to those who missed the listening session. That little soundbite was indeed Nayvadius Wilburn's voice, but the verse that followed was not, though it might not have been until after the show concluded that you realized it.

Action Bronson has been getting comparisons to Ghostface Killah since the beginning of his career, but just as the critique seemed to fade away, it's been reignited by Ghostface himself. Earlier this year, Ghost admitted that he'd heard a Bronson song, and actually thought it was one of his own verses. It was brought up once again on Bronson's appearance on SportsNation, where he suggested Ghost wasn't come as hard as him at this point in his career, “He’s not rapping like this no more,” he said, "just being honest."

10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time Jun 24, 2015 at 10:48am
The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

Raekwon and Ghostface brought in the 15th(ish) anniversary of Raekwon's classic debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, with the stellar second installment (OB4CL2), and they have similarly big plans for the 20th anniversary.

Things kick off July 7th in Philly, moving throughout the states (but unfortunately, not Canada) befor closing things off August 18th in L.A.

It’s tough to get 100 percent behind the Wu-Tang Clan these days. No one can deny their influence and run of classic records in the 90s, but drama, stylistic confusion, and album delays have plagued the crew for the past half-decade.
