Eight rappers who took nosedives after getting wrecked by diss tracks.
Future has been overwhelming us lately, yet he still remains in-demand. Despite giving us back-to-back releases of three monstrous mixtapes (Beastmode, Monster and 56 Nights), the streets were literally salivating when news broke that he was dropping Dirty Sprite 2.
Drake loves to play tastemaker, especially when he's broadcasting the up and coming sounds of his hometown for all of the hip hop world to hear. Social media and now OVO Sound radio are his primary platforms for spotlighting promising Toronto artists.
For over fifteen years fans of Dr. Dre awaited the follow-up to 2001. Detox was rumored to drop basically every year that followed, but was ultimately sidelined as Dre turned his attention to Eminem and 50 Cent, and later, the success of Beats headphones.
Throughout all the Meek Mill vs. Drake beef, the real winner might just be Quentin Miller. The young rapper / songwriter had his name come to the attention of fans, artists, Twitter, and media all after Meek Mill accused Drake of stealing Miller's lines.
Of the many things that old heads will insist "were better back in the day," diss tracks are among the few that most younger rap fans can also agree upon. Even if you didn't live through them, the 2Pac / Biggie, Eazy-E / Dr.
Keith Cozart, best known to the world as rap's enfant terrible Chief Keef, doesn’t do much to imply a typical career is in the cards for him.
Rappers are generally hit-or-miss in the concert setting. Some MCs can really rock a crowd while others are notorious for being sloppy, tardy, or brief with their shows. If you've been to a solid handful of rap shows, you've definitely been kept waiting around for an obnoxious amount of time waiting for an MC to show up, only to have him phone in a handful of songs and split.
Cash Money don Birdman was recently hit with a $200,000 lawsuit by producer DVLP, who claims he was never paid for his work on Lil Wayne's music and music by other Cash Money artists. Despite assurances of "I'm getting yu paid" and "I'm working with yu fam," Birdman never delivered the goods.
It all began in 2010 as a one-day festival with a flyer that looked more fit for a club appearance at a Jamaica, Queens nightclub than for an event that would end up hosting Jay Z and Eminem.
The #FutureHive has proved that internet hype can very much inspire actual album sales, as DS2 soars to number one, giving Hendrix not only his first number one, but doubling the sales of Honest.
People-- even the ones who disliked Yeezus-- really want to hear Kanye West's new album. Obviously, that much can be inferred from the fact that he's simultaneously our generation's most respected and most controversial hip hop artist, but beyond that, fans are taking pretty desperate measures to hear new music from him.
Mac Miller knows what he's doing, so much so, that Warner Bros. offered him an enviable $10 million deal for his own imprint under the label.
At this point in the Trap-A-Velli mixtape series (and this point in the unkillable career of 2 Chainz) we definitely know what to expect from any new releases.
On Friday, Dr. Dre will drop Compton: The Soundtrack, his first project since 1999's 2001. He's kept busy in the 16 years inbetween, executive producing hip hop classics like Eminem's Marshall Mathers LP, 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin', & The Game's The Documentary and contributing to the making of hundreds of other projects.
Jail Bait: 9 Most Incriminating Rhymes On Migos' "Yung Rich Nation" Aug 5, 2015 at 01:35pm 23,062 Views
Back in April, the Migos dudes made headlines when they were arrested outside of a concert that took place at Georgia Southern University. Along with themselves, twelve members of their crew went down for having marijuana and firearms.
This morning, OVO's PartyNextDoor came out of nowhere with a new track called "Kehlani's Freestyle." Although unexpected, the move isn't out of the ordinary for PND, who has somewhat of a habit of sharing one-off tracks on a whim.
Young Thug's Stylist Explains The Inspiration Behind His Wardrobe Jun 10, 2015 at 06:31pm 25,198 Views
One of the main reasons Young Thug is so controversial is simply the way he dresses; "I swear every time I dress myself, it go motherfuckin' viral" is now one of his most famous lines. Just look at him at the end of the "Check" video-- wearing a skintight Hooter's tank that even the restaurant's most underendowed hostesses would have trouble fitting into. And that's tame for Thugga.
Where Is Frank Ocean? Tracking His Movements Since "Channel Orange" Aug 4, 2015 at 09:19am 23,771 Views
For his 2012 debut album Channel Orange, Frank Ocean won himself a GRAMMY and the hearts of music lovers across the world, establishing himself as a generational talent and R&B heavyweight for years to come.
Beef is good for Hip Hop its like high school fights niggas dont really get hurt most the time but when they do? AWW MAN #youngveggiesvoice — Vince Staples (@vincestaples) May 5, 2014
Despite Migos' Yung Rich Nation being the Atlanta rap trio's debut studio album, they're hardly rookies. A plethora of acclaimed mixtapes, BET Award Nominations and superstar collaborations are under their belt. And so for emcees Quavo, Offeset and Takeoff, their first album has epectations other first timers might.
More so than any weekend since If You're Reading This It's Too Late dropped, the last few days have belonged to Drake. Between premiering his "Energy" video, debuting his and OVO's Beats 1 radio show, sharing three new features/remixes and hinting at his new album's release date, the 6 God had us on high alert all weekend.
You gotta love A$AP Rocky and ScHoolboy Q. Despite having contrasting styles, they also share a few similarities. While ScHoolboy possesses a rugged in-your-face demeanor, Rocky is more fluid and flashy in terms of delivery. ScHoolboy loves bathing in women, weed, and alcohol, while Rocky is a fashion savant who loves Bathing Apes.
This room has been silent for sixteen years. For sixteen years, this hip-hop fan has waited for this hallowed space to be filled with the sounds of a classic that was promised-- Detox. The ultimate follow up to Dr. Dre’s only other solo albums, The Chronic, and its sequel, 2001.
Dr. Dre's Compton has hit most hip hop-lovers speakers by this point, and one of the most defining characteristics of the album are the largely unknown artists that make up the features.
