    Selfies are now a worldwide phenomenon. Yes, turning the camera on yourself has become an extremely popular act of our generation.

Rappers are very partial to selfies too and not afraid to pull out their...

    Although the initial critical reception to the 1983 movie "Scarface" was pretty mixed, with plenty of harsh reviews, it has since gone on to not only become a rapper favorite, but cement itself as a classic. Although it was panned so hard by critics, it turned out to be a box office smash. Over the years the tale of Cuban immigrant Tony Montana, who went from dishwasher to small-time drug...

  • 60 Nicki Minaj "Anaconda" Memes & Art You Must See

    Last week we were blessed with the magic that is the artwork for Nicki Minaj's track "Anaconda".  The artwork features Nicki in workout clothes (if a G-string is what you typically work out in, that is), J's and a whole lot of booty. Instantly we saw responses of praise and hate, but most noticeable was a collection of memes which took over Instagram for an entire weekend. We already saw two...
  • Top 10: Rap Interludes

    The interlude has always been an opportunity for an artist to switch up the vibe of their album and transition from one style to another. Sometimes they're musical, sometimes they're a humorous skit (or not so much) thrown in for comic relief. Hip Hop albums have had interludes for a long time, but they're transformed slightly during this current generation of the genre. The skit has almost...

    This week we find the master of all parodies, Weird Al Yankovic, take over Billboard's #1 spot with his new album Mandatory Fun. There's not much new on here in the way of r'n'b and rap, as we await the debut numbers for Common's new release, Nobody's Smiling. This summer hasn't seen many huge hip-hop album releases actually, although there are still a few smaller ones coming up before July wraps...

    It's easy to draw comparisons between Detroit's up-and-coming emcee Kid Vishis and his older brother Royce Da 5'9''; both emcees did grow up in the same home, with the same parents, in the same house after all. But don't let their similar backgrounds get you to thinking they're the same. One listen to Vishis' new album Timing Is Everything and it becomes clear that he's much more than a...

Some are twerking GIFs...

    A mostly levelheaded veteran who’s open about his distant relationship with Chicago, Common is the only 30-plus rapper who could’ve made a Nobody’s Smiling. And this goes beyond the conscious label or being a representative of “real hip-hop.” Common’s best works have been guided by a sense of empathy whether it’s through his famous personification of...

    We both hope and assume y'all have seen or are at least familiar with HBO's "The Wire" at this point - if not, it's due time you did your homework. Created by former police reporter David Simon, the critically lauded television series is arguably one of the most definitive works of our generation, having struck chords far stronger than most of the shows that aired during its run from 2002 to...

    For the past two weeks, we've been polling you on your favorite versions of popular tracks. Last week Kevin Gates (somewhat surprisingly) took the cake in the "Cut Her Off" battle, and the week prior, G-Unit won the "0 To 100" contest by a landslide. Due to the overwhelmingly positive reception of Fif and Co.'s ongoing reunion, we though we'd make things a little trickier by making y'all choose...
