Missy Elliott's Dopest Music Videos
If you’re reading this, it means hip hop plays a big part in your life. You’ve got memories from years ago that helped to cement your fandom of the genre. For me, one of those nostalgic checkpoints is making sure I’d get home from school in time to catch Missy Elliott’s music videos playing on MTV TRL and BET’s 106 & Park. Her songs were catchy as hell, but they were made even more noteworthy once the always imaginative accompanying music video dropped for the public to savor.

Marvel has been repeatedly endearing itself to hip hop fans the last few months with their impossibly cool remixes of well-known hip hop album art as comic book covers.

Missy Elliott's New Single Will Be Produced By Pharrell
We've been waiting on a new Missy Elliott album ever since she heralded her comeback by crashing Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime show earlier this year, and despite no official news of a release date or title, it would appear that we're getting closer.

Stream Ciara's New Album "Jackie"
It's been about two years since Ciara dropped her last album, Ciara. A largely lovestruck album that featured several Future collaborations, including the Mike Will-produced hit "Body Party," the project drastically differs from her new one, entitled Jackie. Led by bittersweet breakup anthem "I Bet," the full project arrives on Spotify today.

Diplo is a great collaborator. He's collaborated with Switch on Major Lazer before that turned in to a project with Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. He's collaborated with Skrillex most recently on the Jack Ü project. He's collaborated with tons of artists in the hip hop world, along with pop and rock worlds too.

Remix Fix: Team Supreme Takes On Tweet & Missy Elliott's "Oops"
In 2002, one-hit-wonder Tweet, dropped that one hit that jumped to number one on Billboard' hip hop chart and all the way to lucky number seven on the hot 100 chart.

Charts Don’t Lie: February 15
Kid Ink's sophomore effort hit the Billboard 200 this week, although it didn't perform quite as well as his debut My Own Lane. My Own Lane pushed 50,000 copies out opening week, which was deemed a strong release, especially for an independently-signed rapper's debut. However, Full Speed moved less than 40k opening week. The album itself is exactly what you expect to hear from Ink, with a lot of radio potential, and top tier features. So what's lacking here? Perhaps once one of his many singles takes off it'll translate into a sales boost.

Lenny Kravitz Will Guest In Katy Perry's Super Bowl Halftime Show [Update: Watch The Full Performance]
There was a time where Rihanna was being considered to do the halftime show at this year's Super Bowl, but unfortunately the NFL (as the NFL tends to do) totally blew it. Now, we've got what is not quite the next best thing, but is something, with Katy Perry taking the reins on the show.After the nipplegate over-correction, which gave us a couple years of performances from artists who were too old to offend anyone, the NFL eventually got back to the current superstar format, enlisting the Black Eyed Peas, Madonna, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars for the last few events.
