    “You are all...” We are all here. Reading, trolling, complaining, praising, and generally over and under reacting to the apparently endless stream of consciousness that has enveloped rap music. We have long entered the invisible whirlwind of the growing existential crisis called hip-hop fandom, from the “hip-hop head” that knows where every sample in every track ever...
  • Is FKA Twigs The New Aaliyah?

    No, Tahlia Bennett, the artist formerly known as Twigs is not actually Aaliyah — I would never pigeonhole her artistry with such a blanket comparison. I also could never put Aaliyah’s entire legacy and everything she’s worth to my generation into a nice, neat, compartmented box. But beyond the fact that they both have consistently made incredible music; there are so many various...

    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. Nonetheless, this is often reflected in his album sales-- he's not the kind of artist to do crazy big numbers, although both Be and Finding Forever...

    Without releasing an album, Drake has completely dominated the first two thirds or so of 2014, staying on the tip of everyone's tongues by delivering unexpected fireballs like "0 To 100/The Catch Up" and "Draft Day." But more so than anything else, the reason Drake's been able to stay relevant this year is his insane gift for picking features. Anytime a "feat. Drake" pops up on a track, it's an...

    Among Odd Future’s colorful cast, Earl Sweatshirt is almost reserved. Almost. Earl’s kept a relatively low profile since his return to the States from Samoa last year. He was all but reclusive until the release of “Chum” last November, a record that showed the same lyrical prowess of his debut mixtape Earl minus the outlandish alludes to rape and kidnapping. After nearly a year since...

Honey Cocaine is affiliated with Tyga's Last Kings label, although she's fielding offers from major labels already. As she says, it's not a race, and she's planning to think every thing over...
