Ab-Soul may have been the TDE rapper
getting the least amount of shine before Control System dropped.
However, with the release of Control System on May 11th he
has put himself at the forefront, and he proves why he belongs with
the TDE spitters, all of whom seem to be the rappers of the moment.
But Ab-Soul is more than just a 'rapper of the moment,' and Control
System is definitely more...
The Jordan 11 Low "Aqua Safari" can be added to the list of summer releases. A specific release date has not been set, but this "Aqua Safari" colorway would be fitting for a summer release alongside the other Air Jordan 11 Lows.

It’s been hard to turn on the radio in the past year or so and not hear French Montana’s rich yet slurred delivery coming through the speakers. The Moroccan born, Bronx, NY bred rapper’s rise to the top may seem like it happened overnight but that’s far from the case.
Before the days of taking to various social networking platforms to establish a fan base, French Montana went about...

Everyone was tuned in last night to the Super Bowl XLVIII, as the Seattle Seahawks seemed to easily beat the Denver Broncos, making many fans either extremely frustrated or extremely happy, depending on which side you were on. Although the Broncos managed to score some points in the latter half of the game, it was by no means enough to catch up to the Seahawks, who by that time were far...

We've decided to put together a quick gallery of Pharrell's hat through out...
At the beginning of October we heard DJ Premier confirm that he will produce a full Nas album one day-- which got us excited, and also got us thinking about what other albums we're really, really hoping will drop in the not-so-distant future.
Many avid hip-hop fans have a similar wish-list to ours-- Dr. Dre's Detox, an Outkast album, that infamous Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole joint project, to name...
