    Los Angeles-based Jay Rock signed to Top Dawg Entertainment in 2007, long before "Money Trees" were providing Grammy-nominated types of shade. The rapper, real name Johnny Reed McKinzie, Jr. was born in 1986 and started rapping in 2005, releasing a bunch of mixtapes and what not. Along with Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock counts himself as a part of the group Black Hippy, a highly acclaimed 'group' in modern hip-hop (if UOENO already).

    There's a lot of bickering about lyrical content in today's rap game--well, that's always been the case. But old-headed purists argue, and will continue to argue, that today's lyricists lack the depth of their long gone favorite MCs. Of course, what you look for in a rapper depends on your personal taste. Sometimes, lyrics might take a back seat. Sure, "flow" is heightened with impressive wordplay, but many of today's most prolific rappers bang most of their buck with vocal cadence, pitching and stretching their voices to meld with a specific beat.

    From the beginning, Odd Future's taste has been as visible as their music. When they first hit the scene, we knew they hated west coast jerking trends, and loved The Neptunes and Adventure Time. Now with the Odd Future Carnival becoming an annual event, OF leader Tyler, The Creator gets to put his favorite stuff on a pedestal for a huge audience, so this year he made sure to bring one of his favorite acts (N.E.R.D) together on stage.

    This week on hip-hop: Labels, labels, labels. Either because the record heads can't get it together or the artists don't want to play the game, the past couple of days saw two rappers at odds with their respective labels. Chief Keef is on the verge of getting dropped from Interscope.

    We live in strange times — times where 42-year-old OGs beef on Instagram with Australian pop rap artists in their 20s. This ain't fiction: Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea were going at it. The "beef" had one artist recalling one that she had with another OG from the south. Also, one rapper tweeted his version of "Control." Yep, it's been an odd year for hip-hop.

    ScHoolboy Q is still on his Oxymoron tip, but that doesn't mean he hasn't started working on his next project. We recently caught up with the West Coast native and found out the album process has begun, although it's in the early stages. After all, he says he just started recording "yesterday" (meaning Thursday September 4th, as we shot this on the Friday). Nonetheless, we're excited.

    ScHoolboy Q has expressed doubt that a Black Hippy album will come to fruition, citing his solo career as coming first at this point in time. "That would be tight one day if it was to ever come out," said Q in an interview with Vibe magazine. "People gotta understand once all your careers is doing good you can’t just turn your back on your solo career to try something new. People gotta understand time is everything."

    Last evening, Schoolboy Q found himself the target of an offhand diss by Twitter user OfficiallyIce, who some call a "ringleader of Black Twitter," and fired back, inciting an angry exchange between the two. It all began with OfficiallyIce's response to a tweet by user EvilJeanyis, which didn't even have an "@SchoolboyQ" in it, but was enough to attract Q's rage.  Read the full conversation, which TDE president Punch also got involved in, below. In case the tweets get deleted, we've also included photos of them in the above gallery.

    If you listen to current rap music, you may have heard the brand Actavis name-dropped a couple of times. Artists such as ASAP Rocky, Soulja Boy, Migos, Future, Ab-Soul, and more have mentioned the cough syrup in songs and interviews, as the Codeine and Promethazine-based medication is the key ingredient in popular drug concoction, 'lean'.  While the brand has undoubtedly profited from recreational use, the company has decided to stop distributing the product due to continued promotion of its unlawful use.
