    Who Had The Better Verse: J. Cole Vs. Wale

    Rap is the most competitive genre in music. For decades, artists reveled in competition because they wanted to prove that they were elite. Whenever a rapper elected to feature his or her peer on a track, both sides were trying to out-duel the other, simply for competitive reasons. Artists knew that for years to come, fans would debate about who outperformed who. That’s why when Kendrick Lamar delivered his “Control” verse, fans applauded his voracious stab at the industry. That’s why we love rap.

    Samples Of The Week: November 6
    Nov 6, 2014 at 03:46pm
    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 Nas, Wu-Tang Clan and Rockie Fresh sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

    Vic Mensa is barely old enough to drink, but that hasn't stopped this 21-year-old MC from livin' the life. After touring with Disclosure earlier this year, Mensa's popularity has been on the steady rise. The Chicago-bred MC has a friendship with Chance The Rapper, and the two frequently collaborate on stage and on tracks. Jams like "Suitcase" and "Tweakin'" have seen the two spit back and forth over some impressive beats.

    There's no denying that since Rockie Fresh connected with MMG, his stock has soared and it's given him the boost he needed to reach a much wider fan base, outside of the Chicago area. Now, we presume that the rapper doesn't get to spend nearly as much time in his home town as he did, he's often out in Los Angeles, plus lately he's been busy touring with G-Eazy and Tory Lanez for the "These Things Happen" tour. We caught up with Rockie during some rare free time out in L.A. and spoke to the rapper about his Chicago roots, and he named his five favorite spots in Chi-town.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.  Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not quite sure about will be bolded.

    The month of April is already wrapping up, even though it seems like it just arrived. We celebrated 4/20 over the weekend, which saw an influx of weed-smoking songs on the site, as expected. Nonetheless, we like think that you can make every day a 4/20, especially when you have the right music. This week UA has four perfect tracks to do so. You can start with the smooth and chilled out "Make A Mill" before going into Rockie Fresh's "Rollin" which is still a bit low-key, and then we've got some harder, more intricate tracks from Freddie Gibbs and the like.
