Champagne Papi has some undeniable Instagram skills, and it's pretty safe to say, they're genetic. Looking through Drake's dad's Instagram account, you'll find a good share of flexin', and we've taken the time to compile the cream of the crop from Drizzy Senior.
Take a look through to see Champagne Papi's Papi stunt'n with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Juicy J and more!
Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well.
Of all the emcees that rap about (and glamorize) gun violence, very few of them are actually about that life, but that doesn't mean they don't get caught up in it from time to time. We've compiled a list of 15 rappers that have been fired on and lived to tell the tale. Some cases may be more severe than others, but whether...

From its birth, Hip Hop culture has been majorly influential for a lot of fashion trends. One of the most recognizable is the sporting of chains.

Originality is a rarity in modern hip-hop, and when an experimental album comes along, it tends to polarize listeners initially. Take Kanye West's new album Yeezus, for example. Its minimalism, raw emotion and amalgamation of genres was difficult for many diehard fans to stomach at first (not to mention the left-field visuals). Childish Gambino's Because the Internet has similarly polarized...

"They want that old Sosa… for what doe?" Well, for good reason. Chief Keef ran into some icebergs with Bang Pt. 2, and the ship continues to sink. The same qualities that were present on his last mixtape reappear on Almighty So. Poor mixing and sloppy delivery continue to cloud the highlights. Thankfully the beats were banging, or else this mixtape would have been a lot worse.

The first few months of 2013 passed with the hip-hop game in limbo, with a severe lack of albums that sparked everyone's attention. Weezys tenth album, I Am Not A Human Being II, was mediocre compared to his previous projects, A$AP Rocky's album, despite being exceptional was leaked late last year, weeks before its release date; several artists pushed their album release dates back...

Game has held an interesting position in the rap game since his monstrous debut in 2005, The Documentary. He’s acknowledged as one of the premier acts from the West Coast, but he’s been hit-or-miss with his projects since that first album. He’s become known for his chameleon-like style and over-reliance on guest features - issues that have made it difficult to grasp Game’s personal style...

"Tall men come down to my height when I hit 'em in the body." -Jack Dempsey
The rap game may be dominated by rappers of average height, but some of its biggest stars fall well below that margin.
Read on for a list of emcees below the average male height of 5'8 (you may be surprised). Once again, we realize lists like this have been done, but we decided to get a bit more in depth with it. We've...

Hip-hop and beef are synonymous with one another. The nature of the game is competitive, and so stars are always getting into tussles with one another, diss tracks are released (if you're Papoose, it often appears for no reason whatsoever), and with help from social networks like Twitter, we often have feuds occurring over the insignificant issues. 2013 was no different from past years, and some...

Today marks the 17-year anniversary of legendary emcee Tupac Shakur's death. Pac passed on September 13th in 1996 at the age of 25 after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas left him hospitalized.
We all know the story of his death, so we won't focus on that. Let's focus on his legacy.
The rapper is still remembered as one of the greatest to ever do it, and we don't expect that to change anytime...

Since 2011, Drake and The Weeknd have dominated the thriving hip-hop/R&B scene in Toronto, though their

two finally go their separate routes.

We hope that Miley Cyrus one doesn't turn you off turkey completely though.
For a more subdued holiday...

An important facet of memorable groups throughout hip-hop history is chemistry: the dynamics every member brings to the table is an essential part of a group's success. Black Hippy's rise to the top has been so prevalent and quick because each of their four main members - Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar - each bring something radically different to what the crew represents....
