    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 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...

    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...

    I don't know where you were when the sad wars hit, but if Yung Lean and his Sad Boy affiliates ushered in an era where 15-year-old Swedish kids crying over pokemon cards, clad in North Face, are spawning articles in swanky East Coast outlets, now seems like the time to honor the tradition of hip-hop tear jerkers that broke your heart but didn't actually make you cry that one time. That was just...

    Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams founded Cash Money Records over twenty years ago. New Orleans rap collective the Hot Boys were one of Cash Money's earliest successes, which has since turned into perhaps the flashiest label of them all. In 2005, former Hot Boy Lil Wayne created his own CMR imprint, Young Money Entertainment. Young Money released their debut album We Are...

    Rappers definitely like to live an extravagant lifestyle, at least, they like to talk about living an extravagant lifestyle. While the average rapper doesn't have several millions to drop on a crib, the rappers on this list have put in a lot of work and racked up a lot of bills because of it. They're REALLY living that lifestyle. We decided to take a look at different homes belonging to the...

    There’s something admirable about truly stepping out on your own, as your own person. You’re leaving behind that helping hand, that “co-sign,” and pursing your dreams, able to stand without the crutch. Los Angeles native Jhene Aiko has gained the support of numerous high-level, high-visibility artists, such as Drake, Childish Gambino, No-ID (producer and label boss at...

    Before Kendrick Lamar raised the bar with good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kanye West walked with Jesus, and the deadly East-West Coast rivalry, there was a young kid observing life and crime through his project window.

    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...

    After he proved he was a bankable rapper, 50 Cent started his own imprint and made G-Unit his first priority. For a while Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Fiddy were consistently putting out quality music that fed the streets. But all good things must come to an end. In the Unit's case, the general fell out with first Young Buck and kicked him out of the group. This was already after Cali...

    This week we welcome Jeezy onto the Billboard 200, with his Seen It All album debuting successfully at #2. He wasn't able to trump the pop-power that is Maroon 5, nonetheless he did move more than projected. The album was projected to move 90k-100k opening week, but it managed to top the 100k mark with 121,000 copies sold. Although his last album moved almost twice, with 231,000 copies sold...

    As important as all our other lists are, nothing quite compares to this one. In a year that saw the rise of a twerking epidemic spearheaded by Diplo and Miley Cyrus, music videos were more sexually charged than ever, especially in the rap game. With a mix of R&B joints, club bangers and straight female spitting, this list has something for everyone. You'll find visuals from Rihanna, Nicki Minaj,...

    It's no secret that hip-hop at large is lacking in original content. If the music isn't about money, it's about sex; if it's not about sex, it's about who's the hardest (no pun intended); if not who's hardest, it's about hip-hop itself. It's in this musical landscape that a label like Tech N9ne's Strange Music is needed the most. A collective of some of the most bizarre (read: interesting) voices...

    This week we're seeing a lot of the smaller debuts from last week trickle down the charts, as Wiz Khalifa takes over the top spot with his new album Blacc Hollywood. Despite having somewhat mediocre and mixed reviews, the album happened to be Wiz's first #1 LP, if you can believe it. His last release from 2012, O.N.I.F.C., debuted at #2 although it moved much more opening week (148,000 copies,...
