    Behind The Beat: Ducko Mcfli

    A year ago, Ducko Mcfli had never gotten his name on a beat with an artist outside of Nashville. He and longtime production partner SykSense had been putting in work for years, even catching the eye of Boi-1da, who signed the pair to a short-term production deal a few years ago. Finally, last March, they sent him one that stuck. He passed it along to his right-hand man, aka the biggest rapper in the world, and next thing you know, Syk and Ducko saw their names next to Drake's "Draft Day."

    10 Raunchiest Rap Music Videos Of All Time

    In the world of rap, “raunchy music video” is almost always code for “ass-shaking fiesta.” Thus, when narrowing down this list from 30+ videos to 10, I was forced to take multiple criteria into consideration. Is the song any good? Was it popular?

    Last year, L.A.-based producer Salva became a household name in hip-hop circles by scoring collabs with a diverse list of artists that included Schoolboy Q, Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs, A$AP Ferg, Kurupt, Problem and E-40. With his all-over-the-place Peacemaker tape and its "Old English" single, the beatmaker gained himself a much larger following in the rap world, and so we had to hit him up to be featured on "Behind The Beat."

    Samples Of The Week: October 30

    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 Drake, T.I. and Que & Problem sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

    The last we heard from Mila J was in late August when the singer-songwriter recruited the power of Ty Dolla $ign and DJ Mustard for her hit single "My Main." The track, well-received by our readers as well as the mainstream radio, paved the way for M.I.L.A. (Made In Los Angeles) to finally reach our collective eardrums. Featuring the aforementioned hit as well as new collaborations with B.o.B and Problem, the short five-track EP is now available for streaming in full via Spotify. Give it a listen below and let us know what you think of the project.

    Mariah Carey, OutKast, and... Iggy Azalea? Now that Ariana Grande and Iggy's song "Prolem" has replaced Charli XCX and Iggy's "Fancy" at the top of the charts, that's the list of the only artists in history to replace themselves with number one songs. Mariah did it in 1995 with "Fantasy" and "One Sweet Day, and Three Stacks and Big Boi did it in 2003-2004 with "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move."

    DJ Mustard's sound is more present than ever these days. While we're now hearing various types of artists take on the signature west coast snap the DJ is known for, YG is definitely one of the first to take on the style.  In a recent Funkmaster Flex freestyle, it was speculated that YG was taking shots at Tyga-- who made a lot of noise with his "Rack City" single, which happened to be produced by Mustard --as well as fellow west coast rapper Problem.
