    When it was announced that New Zealand pop sensation Lorde would be putting together the soundtrack for the new film in the Hunger Games series, it looked like the selection could be something special. Sure enough, the tracklist proves to be a pretty interesting mix, with plenty of rap and R&B, as well as some more left field-leaning pop.

    If you thought the spacey, Kid Cudi-featuring "Guilt Trip" sounded a little out of place on the otherwise aggressive and rough-hewn Yeezus, you're quite perceptive. As it turns out, the song was originally recorded during the Watch The Throne sessions and featured a Jay Z verse.

    Samples Of The Week: October 16
    Oct 16, 2014 at 09:49 AM
    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".  This week, see who Jay Rock, Joe Budden and Tyga sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

    Tim Westwood may not look like your average hip-hop personality, but the 57-year-old gangly white dude, always rocking a different color polo, is an industry legend, and he's been there from the beginning. In the late 80s, Westwood was one of the first DJs in Europe to play hip-hop on mainstream radio. As host of the revolutionary BBC Radio 1 Rap Show, started in '94, he became arguably the #1 importer of American hip-hop to the UK and beyond.

    Last week, Theophilus London found himself receiving more attention from the media than he ever had in his career, all because of hints he was offering about Kanye West's new album. First tweeting that he had heard the album three times in Paris, London then added that he was "on it," "even the single," which clearly implied that the album was completed. After all, he didn't say "heard a rough cut of Kanye's album."

    As we've seen with Kanye West related news stories -- especially recently -- things often get blown out of proportion. The latest headline being circulated is that he and Kim Kardashian were booed at a Lanvin show during Paris fashion week. Some footage of the show has emerged, and while the booing seems pretty minimal from this particular video (it almost seems like it may just be one guy), Kanye does address the photographers' negative reaction to he and Kim's arrival, allegedly because they were assumed to have entered the event 40 minutes late.

    Today, a "posse cut" is more or less a marketing scheme.

For this list, we attempt to illustrate the evolution of hip-hop's sound over time. Beginning in the late 1980s and carry through to today, the posse cuts found here are presented in chronological order for direct comparison to songs of rap music's past.
