10 Surprising Credits On Kanye West's "The Life Of Pablo" Feb 15, 2016 at 05:37pm
Kanye West's The Life of Pablo has finally arrived, and it's about as good as anyone could've expected. Agitated fans are starting to forgive Kanye for his ridiculous antics throughout the convoluted and unpredictable album rollout. The anticipation really started to build three weeks ago, when Kanye shared the first copy of a handwritten tracklist for his upcoming album, then-titled SWISH. There were 10 tracks listed, and at the bottom of the page appeared the words "KYLIE WAS HERE."

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 Remixes That Were Better Than The Original Dec 9, 2014 at 09:56am
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.

15 Superhero References In Hip-Hop Jan 9, 2014 at 02:27pm
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.

What's beef? Well, whatever it is, it sure has changed over the years. Beef is what ultimately lead to the murders of two contenders for 'best rapper ever.' In 2015, beef consists mostly of Twitter smack-talk and occasionally a diss track or two.

10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time
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?

In one of the wackiest stories of 2015, the man who submitted the winning $2 million bid for Wu-Tang's one-of-a-kind album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin was none other than Martin Shkreli, the since-disgraced pharmaceutical executive best known for raising the pri

The 5 Best Storytelling Rap Songs From The '90s May 17, 2016 at 05:13pm
Storytelling is the second oldest profession, after prostitution. As the oral tradition evolved, it reached new heights in '90s hip hop, an era that place an emphasis on lyricism -- ideally #bars not for the sake of #bars, but #bars for the sake of humor, drama, or social critique. Obviously, tough decisions were made as we whittled this list down to five. Do you agree with our choices? Check out our honorable mentions below and click through the gallery for the top five storytelling rap songs of the '90s.

Review: Wu-Tang Clan's "A Better Tomorrow"
Review: Wu-Tang Clan's "A Better Tomorrow" Dec 5, 2014 at 03:57pm
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.
10 Classic, One-Producer Albums
10 Classic, One-Producer Albums Dec 5, 2014 at 11:51am
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.

Fans of superhero (or supervillain)-inspired hip-hop, rejoice -- You may just get the genre's holy grail next year. Ghostface Killah and DOOM, who've been talking about doing a joint album together for at least three years, will purportedly be releasing the long-delayed DOOMStarks project in 2015.
