    #TBT: 10 Killer Death Row Records Cuts

    Death Row Records had quite the run in the 90s. Picking up where N.W.A left off, Suge Knight assembled an all-star crew that would come to epitomize the West Coast hip-hop sound, along with bringing it to popularity. 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and others dropped classic after classic on the controversial label. The label dominated in the early 90s, but when Tupac Shakur was murdered, it began to take a downward spiral. The label filed bankruptcy in 2006 before being auctioned off to WIDEawake Entertainment Group, Inc. for $18 million in 2009.

    Roll Up: Imaginary Smoke Sessions With Your Favorite Rappers
    Sep 12, 2014 at 12:40pm
    A lot of rappers like to smoke weed, as do a lot of their fans, that's a given. Marijuana has become a much more accepted part of, not only hip hop culture, but our society as a whole. As smoking weed becomes more widely accepted, we can feel more comfortable doing it, almost as comfortable as rappers seem with it. That got us thinking. What would it be like to smoke with some of our favorite weed rappers? Would it be chill? What would we eat once the munchies set in? What would we watch on TV? How would we smoke with them?

    Celebrities, including rappers, have been inking endorsements deals with companies since the dawn of advertising. Hip hop music is more popular and marketable to the mainstream now than ever before, so these kinds of deals are on the rise. For many of these hip hop figures, endorsements deals are not only a way to make large sums of money but also aid in the promotion of their own music and brand.

    Top Hip-Hop Club Bangers Of The Past Decade
    May 15, 2014 at 06:03pm
    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.
