How factual are some of Rozay's claims? We take a look at some of his most outrageous boasts featured on the new album "Mastermind."
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
Last week, Pro Era released the triumphant sequel to their debut mixtape, 2012's The Secc$ Tap.e. The new tape, showcasing tracks from up-and-comers like Dessy Hinds, Rokamouth and Nyck Caution as well as the crew's more established stars (Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight), proves that Pro Era is one of the deepest crews in the game right now.
Meet Nez & Rio: The Producers Talk A$AP Rocky's "Pretty Flacko 2" Nov 11, 2014 at 11:35am 11,964 Views
The drought of music from the A$AP Mob family came to end recently when A$AP Rocky put out a new single "Multiply." With the visual treatment for the song, we were granted a sneak peek at what is presumably his next single, "Pretty Flacko 2." Given how much of a banger the first "Pretty Flacko" was, anticipation began to build immediately, and grew exponentially when Rocky performed the single
Hip-Hop has been a male-dominated genre since its inception in the 1970s on the streets of the South Bronx. However, female emcees were looking over the horizon and soon crept into the game. From MC Lyte to Salt-N-Pepa, female rappers proved that they had the skill to hang with their male counterparts. They enforced a message of unity to gain the respect that they rightfully deserved.
JMSN is a name that has been popping up over the past few years, but this Michigan native has actually been active for 10 years now.Mixing soul, R&B and alternative minded music, JMSN receives comparisons to the likes of The Weeknd and even Justin Timberlake.
Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Kid Ink & More Make Super Bowl XLIX Predictions Jan 30, 2015 at 03:28pm 29,659 Views
The Super Bowl is imminent. With the 49th annual Super Bowl going down this Sunday, February 1st, we decided to get word from various hip-hop artists on who they think will take the cake at the championship game.
Beef is good for Hip Hop its like high school fights niggas dont really get hurt most the time but when they do? AWW MAN #youngveggiesvoice — Vince Staples (@vincestaples) May 5, 2014
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.
I Am Music. The title of Lil Wayne’s 2008-2009 national tour needed no further explanation. Wayne, who had just released his Grammy Award-winning album Tha Carter III, had the rap game on lockdown. Using binoculars, it still would’ve been hard to see stragglers such as actor-turned-rapper Drizzy Drake in Wayne’s rearview.
Just as a disclaimer, you won't find Detox on this list. We gave up on that a long time ago. We can only assume at this point that Dre is swimming in a literal pool of Apple money somewhere, Scrooge McDuck style. What you will find on this list however is a whole bunch of projects that we cannot wait any longer for, we need them.
Eminem took things back to basics on his new LP. The Detroit rapper recruited one of Hip Hop's pioneers, Rick Rubin, to help him channel some classic sounds and ideas, many of which came through sampling.
Migos’ style is something like a basketball point guard. The person at the position doesn’t need to master every aspect of the game and probably won’t — rebounding just isn’t his thing. But the person’s shortcomings are hidden by how exceedingly good he is or has to be in a few other skills, whether it’s ball handling or calling plays.
Sir Michael Rocks is not new when it comes to this rapping thing. He's been doing it for almost ten years now, yet he can still be considered a young'n at the current age of 26 (and in fact, he's often grouped in with the young'ns, something we discuss during our interview). When he started out with Chuck Inglish as The Cool Kids back in 2005, he was too ahead of his time.
Rappers are not only given a talent to create stunning lyrical masterpieces, but often times, they've also survived incredibly rough upbringings and dangerous circumstances. While some document their story and their struggle in song, there are often plenty of details overlooked, which is why getting a biography on your favorite rapper is usually pretty exciting.
At the beginning of November we did a list that comprised of 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About. Today we're following up that list with 7 Creative Producers You Should Know About. Producers lack credit across the boards, but they are essential in creating a song, and not just a 'song' but a dope song.
After months of singles, promotion and interviews, yesterday marked the release of Big Sean's hotly-anticipated third album, Dark Sky Paradise. Packing in tons of witty wordplay, Sean Don made what is probably the best album of his young career, and now comes the time to break the whole deluxe edition down in a new edition of "By The Numbers."
We're still awaiting the albums of both Iggy Azalea and Future to enter the charts, but this week we've got two new entries coming from August Alsina's Testimony and Dizzy Wright's State Of Mind EP.
Exclusive: King Los Talks On "Becoming King" Mixtape & HNHH Original "Born A King" Nov 8, 2012 at 09:31am 7,479 Views
While King Los was shooting the official video for his HNHH Original "Born A King" we caught up with him on the set to shoot him a few questions. Los' upcoming mixtape, Becoming King, is set to drop November 29th, and has a slew of features including Wiz Khalifa, Diddy, Machine Gun Kelly etc. So we wanted to know who he wanted to have featured that doesn't make an appearance. Los
Skeme is making a name for himself not only in the West Coast, with the release of the Cali-themed album Ingleworld on December 17th. It's been quite a few years coming for Skeme, who has released a slew of mixtapes to get his name circulating prior to the release of his studio LP.
As an actor, Common has definitely been in some major mainstream flicks and get his due recognition for it. As a rapper, Common borders on the underground/conscious scene, although he's not fully immersed in it because he does do double duty acting.

Nas' first four albums famously wore portraits of the MC in a different light. He was a kid on Illmatic. He was an adult on It Was Written. He was a pharaoh on I Am... He was Nostradamus on Nastradamus.

Not much to explain here, just something (sort of) festive for the holiday. Who doesn't enjoy a good Thanksgiving twerk? We hope that Miley Cyrus one doesn't turn you off turkey completely though.
