Beyonce beat the system with the unexpected drop of her fifth, self-titled album, which shocked the internet, the media and music fans alike. Although B's team had recently told us to expect an album soon, (Ne-Yo almost ruined the surprise as well), no one suspected it would happen this soon.

The inspiration rappers draw from mob films can't be denied. Flicks such as The Godfather, King Of New York, Casino, Goodfellas and Scarface have helped shape the persona of many of your favorite emcees.
There has been a heavy influx of modern and neo r'n'b in the past few years, but R. Kelly will always remain an important figure in what we now consider “old school r'n'b”.
Rick Ross has a well-documented case of multiple personality disorder. Sure, plenty of rappers compare themselves to athletes, characters, and mobsters, but Rozay takes it to a whole new level. From his rap name, to his song titles, to his recurring "I think I'm..." punchlines, Ross is always looking for new personas to take on.

Hip-hop and beef are synonymous with one another. The nature of the game is competitive, and so stars are always getting into tussles with one another, diss tracks are released (if you're Papoose, it often appears for no reason whatsoever), and with help from social networks like Twitter, we often have feuds occurring over the insignificant issues.
The Jordan Super.Fly 2 will hit retailers on Christmas Eve, December 24th. The Christmas inspired kicks will retail for $160.The nontraditional Christmas sneaker incorporates volt laces and accents on the predominately black upper.

The importance of an album can be measured in several ways. Some are deemed iconic because of sale figures, others by the creativity and artistic integrity of the work, others still by their cultural influence. Although it's very rare for an album to nail all of these criteria, Dr. Dre's debut solo project did just that and then some.
Woah. Sport blue accents on the outsole, eyelets, and inner lining of the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement is what we have to look forward to in 2014. The classic colorway and silhouette combined with one of the all-time favorite hues makes this sneaker one of the most intriguing releases of 2014.
This segment of Charts Don't Lie is relatively subdued, as we have no big new entries to speak of just yet. While Childish Gambino's new album, Because The Internet, dropped last week, it has yet to start charting although it is expected to sell a pretty respectable amount, especially considering it's double the amount of his last release, Camp.

2013 was a big year in music with major artists dropping some game-changing albums, rising stars coming out of nowhere to surprise the hip-hop community and your usual hip-hop crews releasing tracks that were bangers. More and more artists are producing quality music videos and with YouTube getting stronger every year, there's more recognition for underground artists.
The Air Jordan 11 low "Cool Grey" is one sneaker that never got released that would've done remarkably well. Though it doesn't appear Jordan Brand has any plans to make that happen, MJ himself already has his own pair. The "Cool Grey" AJ11 lows are a Michael Jordan PE, and you can all be jealous.
On a laundry list of accomplishments and iconic moments, Michael Jordan's "Flu Game" is up there with the best.
