Lil Bibby is quickly catapulting into rap fame following the release of his debut project, Free Crack, in November.

5 Reasons "Dark Sky Paradise" Will Be Big Sean's Best Album Yet Feb 11, 2015 at 04:52pm 40,927 Views
For one reason or another, Big Sean has yet to achieve that "classic album" status that's so sought after in hip-hop.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.

A weird thing happens when an artist gets signed to a major label. It seems, no matter how talented they are, no matter how much their fans are willing to support, debut albums almost always come up short. There have been exceptions, of course. (Logic's Under Pressure being the most recent example.) But, more often than not, the curse of a major label signing is very real.
Ladies and gentlemen, Joe Budden is back in Mood Muzik form. Early last year Joe released No Love Lost, which packaged club and radio songs along with some more personal tracks. That album left many of his longtime fans wanting more of the intimate feel they get from his darker projects.
