    The term B-sides comes from the vinyl record days, when artists would release a single, then put a little extra something on the reverse side for the fans. The tradition didn't stop when music moved to CDs, as artists would throw an extra track or two that didn't make the album on the singles disc (remember those for $2 at Strawberry's?). Now, in the mixtape era, there a lot more B-sides, and...

    Remy Ma's home, but not much has really changed. This week was pretty eventful though. Nicki Minaj's Sir-Mix-A-Lot-sampling "Anaconda" dropped, and she was a feature on Juicy J's latest club-burner, "Low," which also featured an excellent verse from Chicago's Lil Bibby. The verse was good enough to inspire dozens of over-the-top praise. Hell, the retweets on Lil Bibby's timeline is good...

    Mick Jenkins is far from being a household name, but with just one mixtape under his belt, he's already developed an extremely distinct style and a clear vision to go along with it. Trees And Truths first introduced us to the lyrical Chicago spitter, with a cohesive theme and thought-provoking lyrics enveloped in head-bobbing beats. It's his way of wrapping up what might usually be deemed as...

    They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery, but not everyone is flattered when Weird Al Yankovic decides to make their hit song into a caricature. The 54-year-old funny man has spent the better part of three decades taking some of pop’s biggest hits and making them into parodies that touch on subjects ranging from television to tattoos to trash day. Weird Al rose to stardom...

    The annual MTV Video Music Awards went down in Inglewood, CA last night. While there was no twerking extravaganza/controversy from Miley Cyrus this year, there were plenty of other memorable moments, as we saw stars walk the red carpet, receive and give awards, perform on stage (and almost have a major wardrobe malfunction), plus, Blue Ivy was there. For those of you uninterested in watching the...

    As much as we think times change, they really don't. We like the music we like, regardless of what our parents think. Then something even newer comes out, and we say it isn't as good as the old days. It's the circle of life, and the music industry should've seen it coming. Why wasn't the industry, for the most part, ready for the internet, and all the challenges that came with it? If we know that...

    In an ideal world, Remy Ma would be in this edition of 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week instead of being in jail for another week. But, then again, Remy Ma wouldn't have been serving time in the first place. Still, life goes on and the tweets still roll. This week, Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa provide some insight into the human condition (trust us, it's...

    This week we're seeing several new hip-hop and r'n'b entries on Charts Don't Lie, or more to the point, the Billboard 200. Nothing too crazy happened though, with r'n'b singer Tank taking our top spot, but that's only with a debut at #13 (selling 17,000 units). We're mainly seeing underground/indie numbers with our new entries. FKA twigs (whom you may recall Ro Ransom recently compared to...

    There are some tracks you can listen to on repeat, for days on end, and you'll never get tired of hearing it. A track as a whole has many elements that come into play which gives it that timeless feel, including the rapper, the lyrics and the production. The production is what we're focusing on in this list, not necessarily the tracks that we love because the lyrics are deep or the rapper's flow...

    This week we find the master of all parodies, Weird Al Yankovic, take over Billboard's #1 spot with his new album Mandatory Fun. There's not much new on here in the way of r'n'b and rap, as we await the debut numbers for Common's new release, Nobody's Smiling. This summer hasn't seen many huge hip-hop album releases actually, although there are still a few smaller ones coming up before July wraps...

    It's written in hip-hop lore: The story of a Detroit kid who fought severe personal poverty in hip-hop's battle underground, all the way to mainstream dominance. There's arguably been no other hip-hop star that's reached the level of cultural omnipresence that Eminem has at the turn of the millennium. He was hip-hop's greatest hopes and society's biggest fears all in one. Eminem did this both...
