    A few weeks ago, Teyana Taylor posted an Instagram video on her account singing Anita Baker's "Caught In The Rapture". Having noticed the video a few days ago, Rihanna posted an unconventional response, that being a video of her male hair stylist singing the same song in a wig and a snapback. The situation quickly escalated into a heated Twitter beef, and although it's since simmered, we've...

    “A rapper”.  This is the common response an NBA player gives when asked “what would you be if you weren’t in the NBA?”, (with “actor” a close second).  Many ballers have put their money where the mic is and tried their hand at rapping, an even a few have started up their own fledgling labels.  We take a look at the NBAers who have shown some promise on the mic.     HNHH...

    When Young Money released their We Are Young Money album four years ago, they were undeniably the hottest team in hip-hop. Lil Wayne's army was young and hungry, as artists like Tyga and Nicki Minaj had yet to develop into superstars. Veterans such as Mystikal and Busta Rhymes have since joined the Young Money militia, though have failed to make a lasting impact with the group. Fast forward to...

    Few rappers get a second life in the rap game. It’s nearly unheard of to lap around the competition a third time around. But then again Juicy J is not the typical rapper. He started out with his fellow Memphis native rappers and friends DJ Paul and Lord Infamous to form Three 6 Mafia in the early 90’s. A classic hip-hop come-up story, the trio dove head-first into a non-stop grind of hustling...

Years on, Tupac is still treasured as a legend in hip hop for his outstanding discography clocking up 11 album and 44 singles.  Shakur remains one of the most talented, charismatic icons to represent West Coast hip hop. His abilities were not just limited to music, as...

    Isn't this something? Not only is Meek Mill in jail and his sophomore album is delayed indefinitely, but Jeezy also took a trip behind bars after getting caught with an assault rifle. He posted the $1 million bail, but the CTE suddenly got trouble on his head after pleading not guilty.  So appreciate rapper folks while they're here, guys. That's far easier to do these days as they're...

    There's a lot going on behind the scenes that isn't readily apparent from listening to a song. Though sometimes, a simple investigation of writing credits can tell you a lot.
