    E-40 is still a relevant rapper in 2015, but is everyone aware of this dude's tenure in the game? The 47-year-old rapper has been crushing it since 1990 with his flamboyant style of rapping. He stayed in the underground until about 1995 when his album In A Major Way was released. Slowly, people started catching on to the west coast sound, where a quirky style of funky raps were taking over.

    In the late 90s, a design firm in Houston, TX called Pen & Pixel defined the aesthetic of Dirty South hip-hop as the genre catapulted its way into the mainstream. The early versions of Photoshop allowed P&P to grab all sorts of images that wouldn't normally--or possibly--be able to fit into the same shot. Pen & Pixel also allowed rappers to resize themselves into the mis-en-scène, allowing them to become the larger-than-life personalities they rapped about in their music.

Keeping in the same theme as the trailer, the cover art has an array of green bushes with a blue dog in the foreground munching some bush (lol). It's pretty cool cover art.

    Hype Williams may have only directed four videos in 2014, but that doesn't mean we can't all remember a time when every dope hip-hop video seemed to have Hype's fingerprints on it. Countless legendary MCs collaborated with Hype Williams, including the likes of Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Busta Rhymes and A Tribe Called Quest, and also R&B stars like Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Usher and Mary J. Blige. He is definitely the most prolific video director in the hip-hop world.

    Sometimes you're just too lit to be able to distinguish between brands, even when one of them is a company that endorses you. Snoop Dogg, who is endorsed by Adidas, ran into this issue last night when he took to instagram to ask the Three Stripes for a pair of kicks that weren't Adidas' at all. The sneakers in question, and the ones that Snoop seeks, are the 'All Star' Ewing 33 Hi which should be releasing sometime next week during the NBA's All Star weekend.

    Snoop Dogg seems to be a pretty busy man, but it hasn't stopped him from keeping his Instagram insanely up-to-date. The sea of memes that is his account sometimes means missing some important posts, including one photo of the Doggfather and Kendrick Lamar in the studio a couple days ago.The caption for the pic was simply "Work!! K. Dot", which doesn't reveal all that much, other than we should be expeting a collaboration from the two west coast talents in the near future. The question is, wil the song land on Kendrick's upcoming project, or Uncle Snoop's?

    Nate Dogg left an incredible body of work before his time came to an end. He crushed it on his solo projects, alongside 213, and also on dozens and dozens of legendary features. The latter of which is what we're focusing on today. We wanted to take a look at 10 of Nate Dogg's rawest features. He's ran with the obvious likes of Eminem, Fabolous, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, but also with E-40, Shaquille O'Neal, Mos Def and Mobb Deep. He's a fascinating artist to get in to because he roots go back deep to the early 90s when he was doing his part in pioneering the g-funk sound.

    It seems it doesn't matter whose expense it may be at, if Snoop finds an image funny, it's going on his Instagram. Snoop infamously caught some flak when he posted an image making fun of Iggy Azalea's looks, and now he's shared one taking aim at Wiz Khalifa's colorful new hairdo -- though this time it seems a little more light-hearted.
