    The age-old question under which almost all hip-hop music is scrutinized: does it pass the car test? There isn't a precise recipe for passing the car test. What goes in the living room, livens up an elevator, or tears the roof off of a nightclub, may not be suitable for the cabin of your automobile. If you asked me, I would say that passing the car test requires a certain bold, yet uninvasive...

    It doesn't come as a surprise to know that the future of New York hip-hop looks extremely bright. Once the birthplace of rap, the city still harbors some of the best talent in the genre.  But while others coasts and regions have taken off, many have been quick to accuse New York of losing its stature in rap music. While it's fair to say that hip-hop has developed scenes throughout the whole...

    Forget mixtapes and albums, some of the hottest verses in hip hop come right from the offices of Hot 97 via Funkmaster Flex's famous freestyle sessions.

His high energy demeanor and top notch ad-libs only add to the turnt up atmosphere, making every...

    There’s something admirable about truly stepping out on your own, as your own person. You’re leaving behind that helping hand, that “co-sign,” and pursing your dreams, able to stand without the crutch. Los Angeles native Jhene Aiko has gained the support of numerous high-level, high-visibility artists, such as Drake, Childish Gambino, No-ID (producer and label boss at...

    “Internet rapper” has generally forever been considered a negative term. In the eyes of many core hip-hop heads, being real life-hot is always more favorable than being internet-hot. Often, however, it’s the opposite that’s true. “Bad publicity” may not even exist anymore. In today’s day and age, if rappers aren’t routinely mentioned on the...

    This week we're seeing a lot of the smaller debuts from last week trickle down the charts, as Wiz Khalifa takes over the top spot with his new album Blacc Hollywood. Despite having somewhat mediocre and mixed reviews, the album happened to be Wiz's first #1 LP, if you can believe it. His last release from 2012, O.N.I.F.C., debuted at #2 although it moved much more opening week (148,000 copies,...

    When hip-hop first started, beef was a reflection of the boxer-like competitive drive to establish yourself as the best in the business. Then came the advent of social media. With the world hyper-connected, many feuds now start with slick comments or perceived insults that come in the form of 140-or-less-character shots fired, and non-rappers have found themselves in the mix as well. Whether...

Fast forward to a little later at your crib, where you've presumably acquired the 40's of malt, a pile of your favorite strain, and two to three bad bitches that will really make this mixtape ring true.

    "This another motherfucking rap song. Broke and crazy, rich and famous doesn't last long. Spent all my cash on a broken dream, went from weed and liquor to the coke and lean." - Mac Miller, "Polo Jeans." Whether we like it or not, drugs are a massive component of hip-hop culture. No matter the drug, no matter the era, they've always played a major role for better or worse. The rap...

    Nothing gets us more turnt up than a fire new collaboration between two (or more) dope artists, especially if they haven't made a lot of music together before. Although we haven't quite reached the 4th quarter yet, in terms of music, the past month or two have been big, with a lot of new singles coming out as many rappers prep for their album roll outs. We've been noticing...

    Last week we were blessed with the magic that is the artwork for Nicki Minaj's track "Anaconda".  The artwork features Nicki in workout clothes (if a G-string is what you typically work out in, that is), J's and a whole lot of booty.

    It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse. The role of the rappers wife includes extended alone time, which can make you feel like a single mother, cheating allegations and a hedonistic lifestyle...

    The reality TV show "Road To Total Slaughter" brought battle rap into a spotlight it hasn’t seen for quite some time (if ever).
