    Twitter user @SargeWP had the brilliant idea of going back in rappers' timelines to find incriminating tweets from their days before fame. Let's just say it's even worse than you could have imagined. What has been unearthed is tweets upon tweets of rappers commenting on fellow artists, and offering their completely unfiltered opinions.

    2014 is over and done with, and we the hip-hop community are moving onto greater endeavors. After an overall mediocre year for rap albums, 2015 is destined to be different. Hip-hop's biggest names are all scheduled to release albums this year, and the timing could not be more right. Today, who better than Rae Sremmurd to kick off the new year of releases with their debut album, Sremm Life. Only two weeks after that, the long-awaited debut album from Joey Bada$$ will hit stores nationwide (hence why they are not featured in this list).

    Superman isn't Superman if he inexplicably switches from superpowered do-gooder, to some sort of motorcycle-riding anti-hero, to maniacal villain, and back and forth between the extremes. Such mythology is a big part of the hip-hop culture, as well as proper marketing. Any marketing novice and comic book savant knows that consistency is key to building one's image/brand. A rapper who constantly switches up can lose a fan base or market, or even worse: he or she gets labeled as a fake for wearing different styles (there's nothing worse than not being real).

Over the weekend there was a memorial service for Yams in New York, as well as a private one for close friends and family.

    Wale gets a lot of hate. Whether it's for his music, or his attitude, the rapper is often catching flack for something.

    Who Had The Better Verse: J. Cole Vs. Wale
    Apr 6, 2015 at 11:16am
    Rap is the most competitive genre in music. For decades, artists reveled in competition because they wanted to prove that they were elite. Whenever a rapper elected to feature his or her peer on a track, both sides were trying to out-duel the other, simply for competitive reasons. Artists knew that for years to come, fans would debate about who outperformed who. That’s why when Kendrick Lamar delivered his “Control” verse, fans applauded his voracious stab at the industry. That’s why we love rap.

    This is pretty random, but somehow MMG's Wale and Sir Michael Rocks of The Cool Kids got into a small Twitter beef last night. Wale's no stranger to beef, but we don't usually hear about Mikey getting mixed up in it. Wale had tweeted a question to his fans a few days ago, asking, "Whats the best anime series?" For whatever reason, Mikey Rocks saw this and called him out, tweeting, "Yo u will b super Sus talkin about anime G its not u." It seemed at first Wale didn't realize this was 1/2 of The Cool Kids, but once he did, he told Mikey to watch who he's talking too.
