    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. Perhaps no record...

    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 honey".  This...

    In recent years, hip-hop artists have become more and more tatted as the trend continues to grow. Once upon a time, the average rapper may have had a few selective tats on their bodies, but it's now a usual sight to see emcees with fully tatted chests, sleeves, backs and even tattoos on the face. Artists such as 50 Cent, Tyga, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa exhibit this perfectly. The choice of...

The ever trust-worthy Urban Dictionary describes “club banger” as a term “used to describe a song to get all da bitches in the club movin. A song that makes you jump at a party.” These so called club bangers are played excessively at night...
