    The importance of an album can be measured in several ways. Some are deemed iconic because of sale figures, others by the creativity and artistic integrity of the work, others still by their cultural influence. Although it's very rare for an album to nail all of these criteria, Dr. Dre's debut solo project did just that and then some. Now, 21 years after its release, let us roll some green and...

    This week the hip-hop underground proves you don't need to be mainstream to top the Billboard 200, at least these days. Two mainstays within the underground movement debuted within the top 10 of the Billboard charts this week. Both have been around for more than a decade, and thus have developed loyal followings before the age of torrenting and illegal downloads, which perhaps works in their...

    Logic was quietly grinding in his hometown of Maryland for some time, releasing tape after tape, before he hit it big and signed a deal with Def Jam. His story is similar to that of many rappers: an absentee father, a mother with a drug addiction, and a high school drop out. However, Logic is not your average rapper. The emcee first stepped to the mixtape game with Young, Broke, And Infamous,...
  • Review: Joell Ortiz's House Slippers

    Joell Ortiz changed this album’s title from Yaowa, basically because this is him at his most comfortable. In Hip Hop, getting too comfortable can sometimes lead to a decline in effort due to loss of hunger. Anyone familiar with Joell Ortiz would probably find it hard to imagine him not putting effort into a project, comfortable or not. Joell is always known for remarkable lyricism and...

    Self-promoted as a hungry emcee, Ace approaches tracks with a ravenous appetite, and on Body Bag Vol. 2 he devours everything placed in front of him. On “Gutta Back” he introduces the tape’s subject matter; namely, outright arrogance expressed poetically. He gets political on “Wanna Beez” and “Yeen Bout Dat Life,” questioning the candidacy of his opposition. In Ace’s eyes he is...
