    Logic has been on his grind for a long time now, and it's paid off, as he's linked up with Def Jam for a deal while still remaining under the independent label that he came up with, VMG. We caught up with Logic at the beginning of October for Track Breakdown of his single "Two Kings," and we were able to speak to the rising rapper once more when he was on DJ Skee's Skee Live.  The emcee spoke...

    Jarren Benton hasn't dropped a new project since My Grandmother's Basement last June, and he also hasn't dropped much in the way of new music either. That's not to say the (weirdest) member of Funk Volume hasn't kept himself busy. He was heavily promoting himself for a spot on the XXL Freshmen list, and it worked to his benefit, as he was named the People's Champ on this year's list. In addition,...

    Drake's album is officially dropping tomorrow, September 24th. Nonetheless the early leak of Nothing Was The Same has given us all enough time to go through the album from start to finish, and properly digest all the lyrics, beats, and Drake-isms. Part of any good Drizzy album are the quotables-- and here we've gone through and found the most Drake-worthy ones-- you know, the type of shit that...

    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. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh...

    Last week Nipsey Hussle decided to let go X-tra Laps, which consisted of a slew of tracks that didn't make it onto The Marathon Continues, making his fans and blogs extremely happy. It also reminded us why we love Nipsey. We were able to reach him on the phone to talk about what the future holds, and also discuss his start in the rap game. Nipsey only recently partnered up with DJ Skee, the...

    Feeling the back to school/work doldrums now that summer is disappearing into the rear view mirror of your whip?  Don't worry, just because the hot weather is nearly gone doesn't mean there aren't hot albums on the horizon (even if you have to play them in your ride with the top up). HotNewHipHop compiled a list of ten of the hottest LPs dropping this fall, some with...

    Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2. Em's standard for success has undoubtedly been raised higher than the average rapper, so if we were to compare those sales to that of Yo Gotti's opening week for I Am, you may not seem...

    All the single guys out there know Valentine's is just another hallmark holiday, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate the occasion. What better way to protest the couple-centric day, than to embrace your own bachelor-status with a night out at the old gentleman's club. While your friends are out buying expensive gifts for their wifeys on that 'Bands A Make Romance' tip, you'll be...

    This week on the charts we see a new entry with Top Dawg's lady SZA, who made a strong debut considering it's her first release on the label/first release for sale. Similar to Isaiah Rashad's Cilvia Demo, which debuted at #40, SZA's Z debuted at #39 by moving 7,000 units. This proves the strength of the TDE fan base and the support they have for the label, no matter the artist and style...

    Last week we saw several independent rappers make their debut on the charts (sort of-- some of them didn't sell enough to actually chart, yet), but this week we return to the big guns, like Drake and DJ Khaled. Khaled is an interesting case, because while he is definitely considered among the 'big guns' aka mainstream stars, he didn't move mainstream numbers. Although Suffering From Success was...
