Today, September 28, officially marks the 2nd annual celebration of Durag History Week, perhaps the most important holiday ever created by Twitter. Today, unless you're LL Cool J, the durag is a relic of a bygone era, and in many ways, a better, less serious time. Most every member of hip-hop's hall of fame has been guilty, at one time or another, from donning one, whether to create a sea of gentle waves upon one's head or simply for increased aerodynamics. Below, we have featured some of the most iconic moments in Durag History, both good and bad, dating back to Biblical times.

LL Cool J and Canibus have been sworn enemies since 1997, when they took shots at one another on LL's crew track, "4,3,2,1". Further diss tracks followed, and while things have certainly calmed down between the two in recent years, it seemed the rapper's relationship would never officially be mended. However, an announcement at a recent LL concert proved otherwise, as the GOAT rapper brought 'Bis out to perform his verse from the very song where the beef ignited at Hot 97's XMAS Show last night.

Charts Don't Lie: May 12 May 12, 2013 at 03:39pm
Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his serious lack of sales?
