    Behind The Beat: Shlohmo
    May 11, 2015 at 06:17pm
    Henry Laufer, better known as Shlohmo, is a founding member of L.A.'s WeDidIt collective, one of the most forward-thinking labels in electronic music, and, within in that world, the crew with the most crossover hip-hop appeal. Other than Shlohmo, members like RL Grime and Ryan Hemsworth have produced for Deniro Farrar, Big Sean, Tinashe, and even Pitbull. Growing up on a heady mix of J Dilla and Aphex Twin, Shlohmo first started making GarageBand beats, and along with an entire generation of Internet producers, found his stride when he graduated to Ableton.

    10 Hottest Singing-Rappers Right Now
    May 7, 2015 at 04:31pm
    Nowadays the lines are becoming blurred as to who is a rapper and who is a singer. Not only are genres being bent in different directions, so that it's not uncommon to find an EDM influence (or folk, if it's Yelawolf) in a rap song and vice versa, but vocals are being bent in every which way as well. Rappers are experimenting with flows and voices, like Kendrick Lamar, and they're also pushing the boundaries when it comes to being a singer.

    Not many producers are able to go through a transformation like Noah Breakfast, and still keep their name afloat in the rapshere. More than just that, his name holds weight. The Philly native first found success as part of the rap duo Chiddy Bang, and has since branched out to work with all kinds of artists, from Baauer to Ellie Goulding, Big Sean, Wiley and more.

    Rappers To Watch In 2015

    We know you're probably sick of all the year-end lists from last year, but we're already in the second month of 2015, and we're hypothesizing who will get their big break in the coming months. This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram. Crazy shit happens in hip-hop, and we wanna stay ahead of the curve. Some of the names on this list will be more familiar than others, but all these rappers have the potential to have huge come-ups in 2015.

    Now that 2015 is underway, we have plenty of good music to look forward too, when it comes to both mixtapes (just peep our Upcoming section) and albums. Even in this one-listen-then-on-to-the-next generation, it's still appropriate to bump music that dropped last year, right? Especially because some projects didn't get as much as love as the quality of said projects deserve.
