Soulja No Swiping: 6 Times Soulja Boy Stole Another Rapper's Flow May 25, 2015 at 02:15pm 31,513 Views
After much investigation, it has been confirmed: Soulja Boy is a swag-jacker. Some may say this is stating the obvious, as Soulja Boy has been incorporating other rappers’ flows into his music for many years. Just by simply typing in "Soulja Boy stole flow" on Twitter’s search bar, you can find dozens of accusations aimed at the "Crank That" rapper for swagger-jacking.
This week, Chief Keef caused a stir by releasing two tracks with Andy Milonakis, a comedian who'd formerly rapped alongside RiFF RAFF and Dirt Nasty in the group Three Loco. The man who came up as the poster boy for Chicago's violent drill scene was chilling out a bit and embracing humor with these tracks, or so it seemed.
A lot of rappers like to smoke weed, as do a lot of their fans, that's a given. Marijuana has become a much more accepted part of, not only hip hop culture, but our society as a whole. As smoking weed becomes more widely accepted, we can feel more comfortable doing it, almost as comfortable as rappers seem with it. That got us thinking.
While Taylor Swift's 1989 takeover of the charts continues, many of our r'n'b and hip-hop artists have been pushed down. Teyana Taylor actually finds herself the highest-up, debuting at #19, with her G.O.O.D. album VII. The album made a solid enough debut, moving 16,000 copies opening week, while Azealia Banks followed further behind with her own debut album Broke With Expensive Taste.
"In my entire career in the music industry, I have never found anything from a demo tape or a CD. When Jimmy played [Eminem’s demo], I said, 'Find him. Now.'” -Dr. Dre
Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well.
Kobe Bryant reacts to the "disrespectful" pre-season rankings of him and the Lakers by changing his Twitter avatar. You had to know a response from Mamba was coming. There were shockwaves sent through the NBA Twittersphere after ESPN ranked Kobe the 25th best player in the league. Plummeting down from 6th best the year before.
Even though Tech N9ne has spent years cranking out a series of collaboration albums, he couldn’t resist inviting his (wildly talented) rapping friends to join in on the fun on his latest album, Special Effects. Most of the album's 25 tracks include features from some very familiar faces.
The Toronto Raptors are undergoing a culture overhaul with their franchise. They brought in a new GM, Masai Ujiri, whose first order of business was trading Andrea Bargnani, who was an albatross of sorts of the Bryan Colangelo helmed era.
After taking a one-week hiatus last week, we're back again with another round of Staff Picks from the HNHH team.
50 Cent filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy this morning was one of the most unexpected turn of events of the year. Even with his $5 million payment to Rick Ross' baby mama last week, 50 seemed to have an unlimited supply of cash between his rap career winnings, minority stake in Vitamin Water (sold to Coca-Cola for $4.1 billion in 2007), and current spread of business enterprises.
6 Things We Learned From Kendrick Lamar's Interview With Flying Lotus Apr 10, 2015 at 02:01pm 18,544 Views
The day Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly came out, Flying Lotus took to twitter to let us know some inside information on the LP. It turns out that FlyLo was helping Kendrick with the visual portion for his opening slot on the "Yeezus" Tour, and, at the same time, he gave the MC a folder full of beats to mess with for TPAB.
Casey Veggies might be young, but the twenty-one year old MC has quite the list of credentials for someone who's just barely old enough to (legally) get into the club.
OutKast might be best known for their later material like "Ms. Jackson" and "Hey Ya!," but this duo's discography runs deep.
Bobbi Kristina Brown died yesterday at the age of 22, having spent the last five months in a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive in a bathtub.
Bad Boy Records was founded in 1993 by a lesser-known-at-the-time Sean Combs, who later went by Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and now Diddy. Combs began his music business experience as an intern at Uptown Records (that's a good bit of motivation for everyone interning out there). However, after becoming an A&R executive he was fired in 1993, prompting him to start Bad Boy Records.
Few rappers get a second life in the rap game. It’s nearly unheard of to lap around the competition a third time around. But then again Juicy J is not the typical rapper. He started out with his fellow Memphis native rappers and friends DJ Paul and Lord Infamous to form Three 6 Mafia in the early 90’s.
Introduced to most of us via her dope Cloud 19 tape last summer, Bay Area native Kehlani has kept her grind strong since then, now gearing up to release a follow-up on April 28th. Before we get You Should Be Here, we're out to preach to the unconverted and convince you that Kehlani deserves to be on your iPod.
Every rapper that can be considered in the G.O.A.T. debate eventually hits a wall. This drop-off point comes for everyone and leads their stans to add qualifiers to their respective "best all time" arguments, "Of course, I'm talking about Jay-Z from Reasonable Doubt to Black Album, Eminem pre-Encore, etc."
Whether or not Gucci Mane was hacked yesterday during his extended Twitter rant towards his fellow artists remains to be seen. The strange rant resulted in responses from Nicki Minaj, Tyga, T.I. and more (some of which have since been deleted), as well as some really funny memes.
It’s tough to get 100 percent behind the Wu-Tang Clan these days. No one can deny their influence and run of classic records in the 90s, but drama, stylistic confusion, and album delays have plagued the crew for the past half-decade.
On August 25, 1998 Lauryn Hill released The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The album was a blend of the Fugee sound that propelled her into the spotlight a couple years prior. With the solo record, it was all eyes on Lauryn, and she got very personal with that spotlight.
Like any Wiz project, there will be a wide variety of opinions on 28 Grams, ranging from exuberant praise to vitriolic disdain.
Meet Houston's T-Wayne, Brick Squad Monopoly's next-up. If you haven't heard "Nasty Freestyle" yet, you will soon. Wayne's breakout hit just debuted at #43 on the charts, and it has the potential to go way up. Wayne's got jokes, with more toilet references than even that other Wayne, but he's also got skills, and we suspect this won't be his last viral sensation.
