It's been well over a decade since Eminem reveled in the center of seemingly every fiery controversy in popular culture. Never before had an artist dragged so many bystanders into his path of destruction. His assaults were ghastly, yet outstanding displays of rhyme, cadence and character. In the years of his prime, many would step foolishly into his crossfire, while others simply had it coming....

The hype around Nicki Minaj's ass-tastic "Anaconda" cover art was pretty substantial, but when clips from the video arrived, it was clear the Young Money rapper was taking things to the next level. Last night, The Pinkprint emcee shut the internet down with the full length clip, which found her and a few friends shaking it in the jungle, the kitchen, and the gym, which had us looking a bit like...

Nicki Minaj almost broke the internet when she unveiled the artwork for "Anaconda" at the end of the week, and with that came headlines galore, as well as Nicki's own criticism of said headlines.
In an honor of the artwork making men thirsty every where, we've decided to collect some of Nicki Minaj's biggest moments (hehe) when it comes to shaking what her mama gave her. Some are twerking GIFs...
It doesn't come as a surprise to know that the future of New York hip-hop looks extremely bright. Once the birthplace of rap, the city still harbors some of the best talent in the genre.
But while others coasts and regions have taken off, many have been quick to accuse New York of losing its stature in rap music. While it's fair to say that hip-hop has developed scenes throughout the whole...

While 2013 may have been the year of the album, with heavyweights like Jay Z, Eminem, and Kanye West all dropping new projects, 2014 is the year of the monster song. From all the way back in January until now, we've been bombarded with heat, one trending song after the next. We figure the rest of the year will be a lot more of the same (see our Top 10 most anticipated albums list) so we wanted to...

We all know the story with Wiz and his albums, it's a tale as old as time. He goes super, extra hard on his mixtapes to shut up the critics who talked bad about his albums, only to make some of the same mistakes on the next album. It's a vicious cycle, that we're only escaping gradually, in baby steps. Rolling Papers was what the label wanted Wiz to be, and he acknowledged and atoned for...
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 we were blessed with the magic that is the artwork for Nicki Minaj's track "Anaconda". The artwork features Nicki in workout clothes (if a G-string is what you typically work out in, that is), J's and a whole lot of booty. Instantly we saw responses of praise and hate, but most noticeable was a collection of memes which took over Instagram for an entire weekend. We already saw two...

It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse. The role of the rappers wife includes extended alone time, which can make you feel like a single mother, cheating allegations and a hedonistic lifestyle...

Most rappers tend to wear their money, showing off the goods with flashy jewelry and eccentricity. Many have ventured into actually designing and producing clothing, resulting in meagre results. Only a few have actually been successful at maintaining and managing a retail business long-term. Check out our favorite rapper-owned clothing lines.

Art is often a collaborative process. Hip-hop is no exception. You know that feeling you get when two of your favorite artists work together? It’s amazing, right? We need to pursue that feeling. Some people were just meant to work together, and sometimes they need us to remind them of this. Today we’re going through a list of collaboration albums that we, as a hip-hop community, need....
