Cole decided to move up his sophomore album Born Sinner to compete with West. While many will debate who has the better album between the two, Mac Miller’s sophomore album has undeservingly garnered...
Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio.
Have a look through to see what you may have missed in the past seven days.
We're offering you a chance to grab the records that flew under the radar these last seven days with the weekly Underrated Audio. We scope out the records that received less views than they deserved, and give them a few more looks here. This week we round up tracks from rising rapper Da$h, Cleveland/LA native King Chip, a newcomer Nile Ross and more.
The songwriting process in rap can sometimes be hard to follow. With the use of sampling, and the genre's increasingly collaborative production methods, breaking down the construction of songs can become convoluted. Unless you're in the studio, a close reading of the liner notes is the most accurate representation of what went into the music presented on record.

Each week we take a look at some of the most memorable twitter moments from some of the genres biggest personalities.
2012 was an eye-opening year for Snoop Dogg. So much so that the West Coast rapper held a press conference in July to publicly announce that, after spending some time in the Caribbean island of Jamaica, he was a changed man. Snoop declared he was leaving the gangsta-image alone to adopt the ways and culture of a Rastafarian.
There was just one problem: Dog is a derogatory term in Jamaican...

With...
