    It only took one day for Iamsu!’s debut album, Sincerely Yours, to reach iTunes’ top album charts, a feat which is, quite frankly, surprising. Though the album is not a flop, it’s not a work of artistic genius either. There is nothing about this album that differentiates it from his previous seven albums, and many of the songs on it sound alike. The Richmond rapper’s...

    It would seem like a no brainer, rap and advertising belong together, but the ad industry didn't always recognize what hip-hop could really do for marketing. This all changed in the 1980s. Each side began realizing what the other could for them. Rappers could help boost sales, and rappers could, of course make money. So rappers began wearing ridiculous outfits, singing silly jingles, drinking...

But the most superb ones are done by going back to the basics by using an age-old instrument integral to the evolution of not just Hip Hop, but of all music in general: the piano. Though the piano started off being equated with classically-trained musicians, it soon found its way to jazz, which used the instrument in a more progressive manner, and...

    Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well.  Of all the emcees that rap about (and glamorize) gun violence, very few of them are actually about that life, but that doesn't mean they don't get caught up in it from time to time.
