If you've had the chance to stream the project yet, you know that the 6 God doesn't fail to rep the Six heavily through out, as well as few other familiar topics;...
  • Drake's Sneakiest Sneak Disses

    On 2009's "Successful," a young Drake rapped, "Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it," creating somewhat of a mission statement for his career from there on out. In a way, those words were accurate, as Drizzy rarely (if ever) calls out anyone by name in his music, but more accurately, he's become known as the king of the sneak diss, the sultan of the subliminal shot. Especially on his...

    Drake broke the Internet two nights ago by unexpectedly releasing his brand new mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late. It looks like Drake did the cover art himself, writing out the mixtape title in all caps above the signature 6-God prayer hands. He also included, in the same all caps chicken scratch, a very extensive list of thank yous to the people who helped him complete the...

    Every rapper that can be considered in the G.O.A.T. debate eventually hits a wall.  This drop-off point comes for everyone and leads their stans to add qualifiers to their respective "best all time" arguments, "Of course, I'm talking about Jay-Z from Reasonable Doubt to Black Album, Eminem pre-Encore, etc."  Weezy's GOAT argument comes with  more qualifiers than just about any other....

    It's just been announced that Meek Mill will support Nicki on the "Pinkprint" tour. Judging by his personality, Meek is no "opening act," but for Nicki, he'll gladly make an exception. In his own words, Nicki Minaj is "da best female ever". That tweet was from three years ago, and Meek's thirst goes back even further than that. Meek first tweeted about Nicki in October of 2009.  Now, it's...

    Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable. Now, it...
  • 5 Reasons "Dark Sky Paradise" Will Be Big Sean's Best Album Yet

    For one reason or another, Big Sean has yet to achieve that "classic album" status that's so sought after in hip-hop. Finally Famous was a charming debut, but by no means substantial enough to deserve that label. His last project, 2013's Hall Of Fame, was primed to be "classic" (what with its lofty title and Sean's use of that fickle C-word in at least three pre-release interviews), but...

    When the world was first introduced to Jaden and Willow Smith, the children of celebrity power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, they seemed pretty normal for famous kids. Jaden got his acting start with supporting roles in "Pursuit Of Happyness" and "The Day The Earth Stood Still", before going on to star in the "Karate Kid" remake, which also featured him rapping on a very normal pop...

    The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011. March, August and December each held a release date for this dude who was mixing sounds of electronica, hip-hop, dubstep, R&B, downtempo and soul in a way that had never been done before.Well, it worked. In November of 2012 The Weeknd reissued the three mix tapes on the Triology release which...

    This was hard. This was really hard. Mostly because we love all of Kanye West's albums. They've each played a unique role in the progression of hip-hop (and music in general), each pushing the boundaries of his sound and offering something new to the table.However it's fun to really dissect a great artist's work, and Kanye's is no different. His music (and his antics) has been the subject of...

    This week, Chief Keef caused a stir by releasing two tracks with Andy Milonakis, a comedian who'd formerly rapped alongside RiFF RAFF and Dirt Nasty in the group Three Loco. The man who came up as the poster boy for Chicago's violent drill scene was chilling out a bit and embracing humor with these tracks, or so it seemed. In actuality, the Milonakis co-sign was just the latest in a...

    Gucci Mane has been sculpting talent, and promoting new artists since the beginning his career, but it's only over the last couple of years that he's been recognized as a great A&R. Part of that is because following his most recent incarceration in September 2013, we saw many of the young artists he was working with at the time earn Atlanta the title of rap's most exciting city once...

    The Grammys are coming right up, and we'll have the pleasure of watching Iggy Azealia, Common, Eminem, Childish Gambino, Schoolboy Q or Wiz Khalifa take home an award for the 'Best Rap Album.' In the past, the Grammys have picked some albums that had everyone scratching their head, but they've also got it right a few times. We're going to focus on those instances with this list.

This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram. Crazy shit...

    On paper, the two new Kendrick Lamar songs we've received in the past six months couldn't be more different. The first, "i", was deemed a departure from his acclaimed 2012 album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, and compared to Pharrell's "Happy" and OutKast's "Hey Ya" in varying degrees of disdain by fans on Twitter. "The Blacker The Berry", released yesterday, was another story...

    With the Grammys coming up this Sunday, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the times they have upset us, the hip-hop community, the most. Because nobody is perfect and the Grammys are certainly no exception.  While there are a few time they got the 'Best Rap Album' right (and we will take a look at the flip side of this list later today, so keep an eye out), there...
