    Top Hip-Hop Club Bangers Of The Past Decade
    May 15, 2014 at 06:03 PM
    There is somewhat of a divide between a club banger and a mainstream, popular hip-hop song, however, often times, the two overlap. The ever trust-worthy Urban Dictionary describes “club banger” as a term “used to describe a song to get all da bitches in the club movin. A song that makes you jump at a party.” These so called club bangers are played excessively at night clubs (duh) and the crowds can't get enough of them.

    L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling is catching quite a tongue-lashing from rappers, after a recording of him expressing extremely racist views hit the internet earlier today, telling his girlfriend that she should not bring black people to his games. While Meek Mill leveled Sterling with the title of the "definition of racism", Snoop Dogg may have just one-upped him in terms of name-calling.

    Before you get on to reading, I feel a responsibility as this list's writer to inform the reading public that marijuana is bad. If you smoke it, you will get pregnant and/or die.  That being said, if you do choose to smoke the devil's lettuce in honor of the Waldos, here are a few ground rules:

    There is sometimes a fine line between hip hop and advertising, with rappers constantly namechecking their favorite brands, or even promoting their own. A french art director by the name of David Redon may have seen this connection when he began work on a project called "Ads Libitum", which reimagines rap songs as vintage ads.

For example, Rozay claims that Snoop Dogg actually inspired his most recent effort, as Ross was aiming for a chill, 90's vibe with the record, eventually getting Snoop in as a producer. On the subject, Ross said:
  • Samples Of The Week: March 6
    Samples Of The Week: March 6
    Mar 6, 2014 at 10:16 AM
    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 Big K.R.I.T., Lil Bibby & Lil Herb and Snoop Dogg chose to sample in their recent releases, all of which you can find on HNHH.

    It is an occupational hazard for a hotel when housing a smoke-friendly, marijuana enthusiast like Snoop Dogg, that the rooms may be adorned with smoke. In Melbourne, Australia, Snoop's hotel room was filled with so much smoke that he actually set off the fire alarm, alerting the firefighters who came rushing to the scene.

    Classic Rotation: Dr. Dre's "The Chronic"

    The importance of an album can be measured in several ways. Some are deemed iconic because of sale figures, others by the creativity and artistic integrity of the work, others still by their cultural influence. Although it's very rare for an album to nail all of these criteria, Dr. Dre's debut solo project did just that and then some. Now, 21 years after its release, let us roll some green and nod our heads in celebration of a pivotal album in the history of both hip-hop and music in general - Dr.

    It's official. Kanye has left Nike to team up with Adidas and their Y-3 line. In case you were living under a rock for the past 24 hours, Kanye left Nike because he was not receiving any loyalties. Apparently, because he is not an athlete, Nike could not pay him any royalties; which didn't fly with 'Ye.
