    Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Sean set to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold out of the crates. We already covered...

    Vinylz already had a pretty big 2014, but he's setting himself up to have an even bigger 2015. You probably saw the name Vinylz in 2014, or at least you might recognize it, but you probably aren't super familiar with who he is a producer. His frequent collaborator though, Boi-1da, is definitely a name you know a thing or two about. Vinylz is next up, after having a hand in plenty of productions...

    It's a Cole Winter. The rapper surprised us when he announced his new album 2014 Forest Hills Drive in late November, and released the album shortly thereafter. J. Cole stripped the album release of all things unnecessary, from endless promo interviews where the same subjects are broached again and again, to excessive bonus records, to the expected listening sessions with industry insiders. With...

    "In my entire career in the music industry, I have never found anything from a demo tape or a CD. When Jimmy played [Eminem’s demo], I said, 'Find him. Now.'” -Dr. Dre Few men have had the kind of impact on hip-hop history like Eminem has. Actually, it’s arguable that no man has ever had that kind of impact. Slim Shady LP, the commercial debut album from Marshall Mathers took...
  • 10 Remixes That Were Better Than The Original

    The remix. It can mean a lot of things. Today it usually means a trap or house DJ took a tune and chopped it up for the dance-floor, but there was a time in hip-hop where the remix was an opportunity to invite old friends and make new ones over a celebrated beat. P. Diddy's album We Invented The Remix might have been a little over-ambitious with its title. I don't know how Frankie...

    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...

    Sir Robert Bryson Hall II even sounds like future royalty. Professionally known as Logic, the massively talented Maryland MC has that potential. He’s also an interesting meta case study of multiple perspectives. Surface level, his racial background paints a ready-made perception, fair or not.  Within this particular context, there is a matter of fact. Frankly, while his heritage...

    Were it not for Juicy J, "ratchet" would not be nearly as popular a term as it currently is. He certainly wasn't the first to use the word, but over the course of his late-career comeback, has became forever associated with it thanks to frequent usage and that iconic "You say no to ratchet pussy, Juicy J can't" line in "Bandz A Make Her Dance" (also, who could forget the ratchet-as-hell...
