    More than any other artists or group (excepting Scarface) Outkast is responsible for the rise of southern rap. They were among the first acts to gain recognition from the region and remain one of the most commercially and critically successful rap groups to date.

    Tech N9ne has been in the rap game for well over two decades but he flew under mainstream’s radar for much of his career. Shooting off lyrics with the speed of an automatic weapon, he earned a legion of fans through relentless tours to small cities in the heartland of the country. But it was a two-minute interlude featuring Tech N9ne on Lil Wayne’s 2011 highly anticipated album Tha Carter IV...

    Last week we contemplated the low sales for Ace Hood's Trials & Tribulations album.

We all know those Young Money fans go hard for their rappers, however, it appears they didn't come out to purchase Birdman's YMCMB compilation (of sorts), Rich Gang. First off, the album was...

This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't...

  • 8 NBA Players Who Blew Their Fortune & Went Broke
    13,339 Views
    Former athletes and entertainers are becoming synonymous with the word "broke".  Many athletes have signed lofty contracts and lost it all. Much like Mike Tyson.  A vast majority of players aren't financially responsible which ultimately leaves them bankrupt.
