    Defining a “classic” is no easy task. The first factor is obviously the quality of the music. Here we ask the basic questions: Are there any unnecessary tracks? Does the production impress without outshining the lyrics? The usual surface stuff that’s easy to assess on two full listens. After the surface level is cleared, an album has to separate itself from the pack. Most of the...

We encourage your opinions.  Lyrics of the Week is brought to you by our collaborators at gotbars.com, currently one...

    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...

    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.

    Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning. Films such as Charlie Ahearn's Wild Style and Stan Lathan's Beat Street helped define this vivid form of expression in the 80s, and it's since grown into an international phenomenon.

    We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first. For OF, this is Tyler,...

    Among Odd Future’s colorful cast, Earl Sweatshirt is almost reserved. Almost. Earl’s kept a relatively low profile since his return to the States from Samoa last year. He was all but reclusive until the release of “Chum” last November, a record that showed the same lyrical prowess of his debut mixtape Earl minus the outlandish alludes to rape and kidnapping. After nearly a year since...

    We're in midst of a major shift in hip-hop right now, where rappers are taking matters into their own hands. Major labels like Interscope, Def Jam, and Atlantic Records seem to be having less control over their artists. The tide is changing, and the result is a mainly positive one.
