We take a look at the many artists Dr. Dre has pushed for over the course of his decade-spanning career.
Travi$ Scott has been the figure of some controversy for a myriad of reasons. Number one, he appears to have a reputation for being a dick, but that's actually not anything new to rap. He's also been known to bite styles, which is yet another familiar trope. But, perhaps above all, is the fact that both Grand Hustle and G.O.O.D.
Floyd Mayweather is a boxing icon who knows a thing or two about defending titles, and he's also a big fan of the Miami Heat. If you recall he partied with LeBron James in Las Vegas for a celebration following the Heat's back-to-back championship.
The Game's Documentary 2 has been the subject of much buzz since its release last Friday. The west coast sound is alive with the release, as it falls in line sonically with the likes of YG, Jay Rock, and Dr. Dre's Compton. The samples help to give the record a nostalgic vibe amongst the dense production.
When a rapper has a kid, you can pretty much guarantee that they won't be opting for those normal, everyday names. The average hip hop artist-- this seems to ring true for your average celebrity as well-- will do their utmost to make sure it is unique
Rappers are not only given a talent to create stunning lyrical masterpieces, but often times, they've also survived incredibly rough upbringings and dangerous circumstances. While some document their story and their struggle in song, there are often plenty of details overlooked, which is why getting a biography on your favorite rapper is usually pretty exciting.
By dropping his newest mixtape Black Dollar, Rick Ross added another great addition to his line of releases, album and mixtapes alike. It always seems to be that mixtapes hit harder than albums (remember Rich Forever?), but let's divert our attention back to Ross' albums for a minute.
I first saw Vince Staples through his baby picture, the artwork to his breakout mixtape, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1, was floating down my Tumblr feed in 2011. However, it wasn’t until I was listening to Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris, that I was blown away listening to Vince completely slaughter the outro of “Hive,” and from there on anything else I heard him on.
On Dizzy Wright's second studio album The Growing Process, the 24-year old rapper makes an attempt at honing in his focus as an artist by establishing a moral constitution for his music to adhere to until further notice. For the most part, this is goal is met by the young upstart.
The sneaker community is filled with a plethora of talented artists that use kicks as inspiration to create tons of dope drawings, customs, masks, skulls, and even bugs.Our SneakerMob staff recently linked up with Amsterdam sneaker artist, Filfury, and asked him a little about himself and his art that he is producing.
In December we cooked up 10 Detroit Players From The Underground. The feature was meant to give you a close look at rappers hailing from the D, who may not be on your radar/the mainstream radar. It was only right we move to another Midwest location for this next batch of artists, who all count themselves Chicago natives.
Born and raised in Philly, DJ Drama has made a name for himself in the hip hop game over the years. While his career set sail after becoming the official DJ for T.I., he has played a crucial role in the onset of mixtapes in the rap world. The Golden Mixtape Era, which started about ten years ago, is now stronger than ever.
The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list.
Even if you don't recognize his name, you can't miss TM88. His beats under the 808 Mafia umbrella are unavoidable at this point, first fueling the South's recent reinvention of trap music, then appearing on projects by everyone from Meek Mill to Machine Gun Kelly.
When NBA star basketball player Michael Jordan teamed up with Nike in 1984 and launched his Air Jordan brand the following year, unbeknownst to former Chicago Bulls shooting guard, he was making history. Consisting of sneakers as well as athletic apparel, the Jordan Brand has grown over the last thirty years into a widely successful brand.
If there was one voice that dominated 2005-2010 radio, it was T-Pain's. His auto-tuned croon earned him spots on Billboard charts and guest features on everybody's albums.
The Adidas D Rose 4.5 has officially been unveiled in a wide variety of colorways. The shoes are scheduled to release in 3 of these colorways on January 30th, for $130.
LeBron James took to instagram after last nights win to show of an exclusive 1 of 1 Nike LeBron 11. The pair, which features an all black upper with floral overlays, reminds us of the LeBronald Palmer design that was wildly popular.
As Drake said after he concluded his first interview with Nardwuar, a Canadian man who rocks a tartan hat and calls himself the "Human Serviette," "this guy is a legend." There's really no better way to put it: this guy's interviewed everyone from Nirvana to N*E*R*D, and always seems to unearth facts that no other interviewer in the game can.
Meek Mill’s new album sounds like the Apocalypse. Not the actual, devastating end-of-days, but the cinematic equivalent we’ve come to expect from our summer blockbusters: a free-wheeling, no-stakes madhouse of destruction complete with swelling strings, chanting choirs and Earth-shaking war drumbeats that could bring a tear to Clint Mansell’s eye.
Dwight Howard Had Fan Arrested After Being Hit With Basketball Accidentally Nov 6, 2013 at 05:27pm 2 Views
Dwight Howard had issues after the Rockets game at Staples Center Monday and had police detain a fan and pushed for him to be arrested. Playing the Clippers on Monday was Dwight's first return to Los Angeles since leaving the Lakers, and he said in an interview that he is understanding of fans hating on him.
Jay Electronica is now 38 years old. It's been nearly eight years since his first mixtape surfaced on the web, nearly five years since he signed with Roc Nation, and nearly four years since he claimed his debut album was finished. Album delays are commonplace these days, but four years? We heard a version of "Shiny Suit Theory" days after Jay E.
More than perhaps anyone else this decade, Terius Nash (AKA The-Dream) has been R&B's go-to behind-the-scenes man. Although his solo career has attracted a ravenous, cultish following, The-Dream's biggest smash hits (and paychecks) have come courtesy of his songwriting. He's penned tracks for Rihanna, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Mary J.
A$AP Rocky’s relatively short career in the rap game has been one filled with high praise. His debut mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP, received exponential buzz solely off the strength of “Purple Swag,” and it was more so off the strength of the visual, which went viral (visuals have become a key component to Rocky’s career).
There's a lot going on behind the scenes that isn't readily apparent from listening to a song. Though sometimes, a simple investigation of writing credits can tell you a lot.
