    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."

    The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Some have even created comic books based on fictionalized versions of themselves, most notably the Wu-Tang Clan as a whole as well as individual members Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA and GZA.

    The remix. It can mean a lot of things. Today it usually means a trap or house DJ took a tune and chopped it up for the dance-floor, but there was a time in hip-hop where the remix was an opportunity to invite old friends and make new ones over a celebrated beat.

    10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time

    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?

    It's been seven years since the Wu-Tang Clan released their last proper album, 8 Diagrams, but of course, that doesn’t mean the members of rap’s greatest clan have been prepping for an early retirement. Not by a long shot.  Since 8 Diagrams, there have been a number of efforts from Clan members, most notably records by Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Method Man. While the three collaborated on 2010’s Wu-Massacre, they have also been involved in a variety of other projects.

We did some digging to find quotes, interviews, lyrics, and examples of artists praising Nas' debut album, a record that changed hip hop forever.

    Many of hip-hop's most classic albums have one thing in common: they were all produced (mostly) by one man. Dr. Dre, J Dilla, the RZA, Kanye West, Madlib, and many more have all laced MCs with a collection of beats that create a cohesive aesthetic through which full LPs can thrive. Singles and one-offs are cool, but to compile 10+ tracks and keep it dope the whole way through makes you a master of hip-hop.

    Flume is one of the most exciting figures in dance-music culture, and it isn't even because he wants to be there. The Australian producer has carved his niche in the beat scene by making tunes big enough to get main stage approval. Not an easy task inn 2014.

    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.

    For Ghostfac Killah fans, the "best album" debate is a heated one. There's the charismatic debut, Ironman, the return-to-form Fishscale, and I've even heard some boom-bap die-hards pull for last year's 12 Reasons To Die in the argument -- but Supreme Clientele, released in 2000, is usually the winner. That's why fans of Tony Starks ' solo work should rejoice in this news: Supreme Clientele 2 is in the works.

    Ghostface Killah goes by many names: Ghostdini, Iron Man, Tony Starks, Pretty Tone and any slang-derivative of 'em is pretty much fair game. Despite the identity crisis, Ghost has always been reliable for putting out quality music. The Staten Island MC, whose real name is Dennis Coles, is well-known for his witty slang and impeccable story-telling, all of which has weathered two decades of prolific output.
