The cross-section of hip hop and basketball culture is a large one with both influencing each other’s style, and stars of each hailing from the same regions.

The Underachievers are one of Brooklyn's up-and-coming rap groups. They're most recent album Evermore: The Art of Duality was just released this past Friday, and might just be the duo's best work to date.
When you think of club-ready hip hop music that was bumpin' from 2000-2010, Swizz Beatz is one of the elite names that should come to mind.

If you checked out the review for Yelawolf’s most recent effort Love Story, you may have noticed that there is quite a split on the merit of the record among fans and staff alike.

Being a fan of Hip-Hop is no simple matter. It’s more than the clothes you wear; it’s more than the songs on your ipod. It’s a commitment to a culture so sweeping that superficial affection won’t suffice. Although casual adoration is acceptable, it’s far from lasting. To be an abiding disciple is to be married to Hip-Hop.
Christmas is finally here and no doubt you’ve already finished your shopping. You left a few very important people off your shopping list, however. Namely, your favorite rappers.

We're all doing it for the Vine these days.
