    2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown. As...

    Slinging crack rock, popping glocks, and smacking hoes is not the way to keep it gangsta. In the words of Stic.man of the hip-hop duo Dead Prez, "HEALTHY IS THE NEW GANGSTA." True happiness can be achieved through knowledge, proper nutrition, fitness, and meditation; not guns and drugs. Hip-hop all-stars such as Big Sean, David Banner, 2 Chainz, Common, and Stic.man and business magnate Russell...

    The songwriting process in rap can sometimes be hard to follow. With the use of sampling, and the genre's increasingly collaborative production methods, breaking down the construction of songs can become convoluted. Unless you're in the studio, a close reading of the liner notes is the most accurate representation of what went into the music presented on record.  We've gone through the NWTS...

    Game doesn't quite get the respect he deserves. Sometimes things like his habitual name dropping and controversy divert attention from the fact that he has been one of the most consistent rappers over the last decade. Since the release of his debut, The Documentary, he's delivered a series critically acclaimed albums, out-rapped many of his counterparts and at one point, was one of...

    With the rise of digital music, decline of music sales, and mass growth and adoption of social networks and blogs, we have seen the playing field become leveled. With that has come fewer major label releases and a lion share of independent releases. With a small number of Hip Hop albums surpassing the milestone of 100,000 sales these days - or even half that number, it has become easier to gain...

    As a 17-year-old just beginning to make waves in the rap game, Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott didn't have the same life as most kids his age. He wasn't thinking about graduating high school to attend a university or enter the work force. As a matter of fact, before he even graduated high school he had formed a collective with classmates that would come to be known as Pro Era. He's snagged production...

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of anything ever uttered by Drake). 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...

    Sir Robert Bryson Hall II even sounds like future royalty. Professionally known as Logic, the massively talented Maryland MC has that potential. He’s also an interesting meta case study of multiple perspectives. Surface level, his racial background paints a ready-made perception, fair or not.  Within this particular context, there is a matter of fact. Frankly, while his heritage...

    Mixtapes are like opinions. Everyone has one, but not all of them matter. Your mixtape should be a totally uninhibited creative space. A platform where you can impulsively exhibit your talent for a more focused and passionate audience.
