    It's pretty common knowledge that the Notorious B.I.G came from humble beginnings and had his fair share of struggles. His undeniable talent enabled him to quickly make a name for himself in the hip-hop world. Wallace soon left the world of drug-dealing behind for a better life in music.   For this rapper, success came fast as he captured the attention of many simply off his demo tape. But...

    In 2014, it's no secret that where Kanye West goes, the rest of hip-hop follows. Starting with him and Just Blaze making "chipmunk soul" a hot sound in Roc-A-Fella's prime, Mr. West's musical output has always been a pretty good gauge of where hip-hop is headed, whether it be his early mantra of having a "Benz and a backpack" or his drill-invigorating remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like." But in...

    Rich Homie Quan dominated the summer with his smash single “Type of Way.” The song made its way onto the Billboard chart and helped catapult the Atlanta rapper’s career (and bank account) into a new stratosphere. Before he drops his debut album, the Atlanta native released the DJ Drama-hosted I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In mixtape with the hopes of proving that he’s much more than a...

    Tyler, the Creator's previous two solo projects were critically-acclaimed pieces of work. The success of Bastard and Goblin allowed him to garner the crazed fan base that follow his every move, but with Wolf, the Los Angeles native has moved on to something new. Instead of the usual six-minute intro track where he discusses his angst-filled life with his shrink and...

    There's no denying the inspiration rappers draw from movies, whether the sound is on or off. Films such as Juice, King Of New York, Belly, New Jack City, Boyz In The Hood, Menace To Society and Scarface have helped shape the persona many of your favorite emcees adopt on the mic (whether they're entirely aware of it or not). Artists, especially those born into poverty, tend to identify with...

    Soon Jay-Z is going to be on the charts, undoubtedly dominating the top spot, which belonged to J. Cole this week. Jay-Z's new album has made waves not only for it's creative rollout but for changing the rules of RIAA, in order to ensure the album went platinum before it even dropped, unlike our other chart-toppers this week, who are working their way to platinum the old-fashioned way. On top of...

    Summer is about to be in session. University students wrapped up their final days a month or two ago, and high school students followed suit around two weeks ago. For those high school students in their last year, this inevitably means prom and all the things that go with it: limousines, parents taking photos, getting fancy, friends, and general debauchery as the night progresses. Prom isn't for...

    When Gucci Mane released his World War 3 series on iTunes last month, it was merely a hint of what was to come. The first shots were fired on September 7th, when Guwop and Waka Flocka engaged in a Twitter argument. As more names got involved , the feud grew nastier. The peak of Gucci’s Twitter rant came on September 9th, when he put moguls such as Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, and T.I. on blast. Riding...

    Arguably one of the most influential artists of our time, Kanye West has always played by his own rules-- evidenced in his new album Yeezus.

    The 90s are often referred to as rap's golden era, and while rappers of all types will continue to pay tribute to the decade, Drake definitely takes it to the next level. Drizzy's love affair with the 90s can be traced to all facets of his artistic output, from his music, to his videos, to his "interesting" fashion choices.  So without further ado, take a look through our list of Drake's most...

    Kid Cudi has never been one to hold his tongue or boast modestly. The Cleveland native is infamous for his onstage rants and mid-performance meltdowns. So it should come as no surprise, when talking about his fourth studio album, Cudi likened Indicud to Dr. Dre’s classic 2001 album. A bold statement indeed. Hot on the heels of his announcement of an amicable split with Kanye West’s...

    Many emcees are noted for their serious, aggrandized personas so it becomes easy to forget that for the most part, Hip Hop is about fun and many rappers use their verses to tell some jokes (isn't that why they call them punch lines?). Perhaps in an era where Vevo-streamed, artistic, well-directed visuals reign supreme, we've forgotten another time when people would watch the silliest music...

    Get Home Safely, Dom Kennedy’s second studio album and follow up to last year's Yellow Album, demonstrates Dom Kennedy’s unique ability to weave highly accessible stories into his lyrics without compromising intelligibility. Actually, it’s not a trait unique to him. Artists like Slick Rick, Snoop and Nas are known for this same technique. Of course, most rappers are adept...
