Five times the Human Serviette achieved YouTube gold with rappers.
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.
Drake's "Hotline Bling" has been a staple of late night chill sessions from Toronto to Tahiti ever since he premiered in July on the second episode of OVO Sound Radio.
Dirty Sprite 2 may be projected to do huge first week sales numbers, but Future got just as much #DS2 love from other rappers as he did from fans, as numerous rappers quoted lyrics from the album on Twitter to let everyone know they were bumping it. In terms of respect, that counts for at least as much as a good old fashioned plug.
The Nike LeBron 11 "Christmas will hit retailers tomorrow, December 26th. LeBron will be rocking these kicks today when the Heat take on the Lakers.
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.
Mac Miller's GO:OD AM was meant to start your day off on the right foot. The positive-minded rapper boasts a smooth flow throughout the project, so it isn't just the name that makes us want to bump these tracks first thing in the morning.
Earl Sweatshirt’s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Get Outside is a short and moody album. It also happens to be a very focused, quality listen, and possibly the best output we’ve received from the California native. Through bummed-out stoned raps and shoegazing beats, Earl proves to be one of the most talented, albeit depressed, rappers in the game.
Throughout the years Kanye West has transcended hip hop and has made music of his own kind. A hybrid of many sounds and ideas, Yeezus is an ambition expansion of West’s sound palette. Introducing news soundscapes and textures, the album has a completely new sound for the artist, and is a complete disregard for the rules of hip hop and music and because of it, it works.
The "Gator King" Nike LeBron 11 will release on Nike.com and select retailers on February 14th. As per Nike;
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.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you left your card shopping to last minute (cause really, who doesn't?), we've rounded up some hip-hop-themed Valentine's Day cards for you and your girl/boy.
Lil Herb's long-awaited mixtape, Ballin' Like I'm Kobe, arrives today. From what we've heard, it aims to match the incredible artistry we heard on Welcome to Fazoland and Pistol P Project. Last night, to properly anticipate the release, Herb shared a new track, "Gang In This Bitch," with his closest collaborator, Lil Bibby.
Miguel is an R&B artist that not many will argue against. After bursting onto the music scene in 2010 with his debut single and album "All I Want Is You", Miguel has been a casually unstoppable force in music, with hits like "Sure Thing," "Adore," "Quickie," and features like "Lotus Flower Bomb" and "Good Lovin" keeping Miguel in the back of our minds and at the top of our playlists.
We're quickly approaching the holidays, which means the year-end lists are in full effect. While many of us are looking back at the abundance of great music that's dropped over the past 50 weeks, some of our favorite rappers are showing no signs of showing down. Shortly after dropping his Black Friday remix package with Kendrick Lamar, J.
The Air Jordan 1 ’94 “Powder Blue” is scheduled to release February 8th, for $130.

The record will follow up 2011's 21.
A straight shot up I94, and almost 300 miles from Detroit, Chicago’s drill scene is currently making waves for the Midwest.The city that is currently more known for its violence than its wind, beautiful architecture and tasty signature deep dish pizza has captured the attention of America’s hip hop community.
In 2014, it's no secret that where Kanye West goes, the rest of hip-hop follows. Starting with him and Just Blaze making "chipmunk soul" a hot sound in Roc-A-Fella's prime, Mr.
Prior to his debut in a Knicks uniform, Metta World Peace decided to touch base with his New York roots and ride the subway to Madison Square Garden. Growing up in Queensbridge, where his brother still lives, Metta (or Ron Artest, as he was known then) took the F train frequently, and he had not taken it in a long time so he felt prior to his first Knicks game would be a good chance.
Lupe Fiasco has been in a battle with Atlantic records for what seems to be forever. We all know about his discontent with Lasers and on his mixtape Friend of the People he made it clear that he wanted off the label. He did not get his wish before this album dropped, and that almost prevented us from hearing this album entirely.
It's official. Kanye has left Nike to team up with Adidas and their Y-3 line. In case you were living under a rock for the past 24 hours, Kanye left Nike because he was not receiving any loyalties. Apparently, because he is not an athlete, Nike could not pay him any royalties; which didn't fly with 'Ye. Kanye isn't the only musician capable of designing his own sneakers though.
Seven years after Wale released his blazing Mixtape About Nothing, he’s released The Album About Nothing. His alternative hip hop style has come a long way in the time since; he’s inked a deal with Rick Ross, had a #2 album with Ambition, and a #1 album with The Gifted.

Drake and Future successfully created a moment with What A Time To Be Alive, successfully dodging leaks and getting rap fans everywhere tuned in to a a good old-fashioned radio show. Of course, the main difference with doing this in 2015 is the project could instantly be discussed on a major scale, with fans everywhere tweeting out lyrics as they happened.
Sir Robert Bryson Hall II even sounds like future royalty. Professionally known as Logic, the massively talented Maryland MC has that potential. He’s also an interesting meta case study of multiple perspectives. Surface level, his racial background paints a ready-made perception, fair or not.
The 2013-14 NBA Season always promised to throw predictability to the wind, with its wide-open title chase, critical mass of looming key Free Agents, and plethora of teams actively trying to lose games.
The Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Inspiration" will be releasing on March 1st. The "Inspiration" was unveiled yesterday along with two other colorways, but the Nike Kobe 9 "Inspiration" is the sneaker Kobe will be lacing up when he returns to action for the Lakers.
Ever since his arrival in the music industry, Kanye West has been a notable figure in terms of style. He has underwent a great deal of change in his fashion and has rocked everything from vans to luxury sneakers with price tags well over a thousand dollars.
Emerging from the ghettos of New York City, specifically the Bronx, in the '70's, Hip-Hop became the voice for a people who had been ignored for too long. It echoed the conditions African- Americans were living in - and still are, to an extent - and their daily struggles.
On paper, recording a song for a film soundtrack is considered the ultimate form of selling out. The music itself is literally used as promotional material for a larger product. Music money is big, but movie money is on another level (ask Ludacris, who hasn't released an album since "Fast Five").
