    Nowadays, creating new and original music is very much easier said than done. That being said, a huge part of creating dope hip hip music involves sampling. This is exactly how it sounds: taking a portion, or sample (there it is), of a previous song and reusing it in a difference piece, in an effort to create something (almost) entirely unique. This could mean a specific instrument, such as a...

    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 ways that...

    It's possible that you've come across WELL$ at this point.

We instantly gravitated towards his music, and decided it was only...

    Emerging from the ghettos of New York City, specifically the Bronx, in the '70's, Hip-Hop became the voice for a people who had been ignored for too long.

    Defining a “classic” is no easy task. The first factor is obviously the quality of the music. Here we ask the basic questions: Are there any unnecessary tracks?

    In the 90s and early 2000s, smoking marijuana was largely unaccepted and taboo. There was talk that weed was "dangerous," and despite debates and research showing that it was actually safe, and had possible healing properties, it remained banned in every US state. In recent years, more states have come to realize the medical benefits of marijuana, and it has become legal (for medical use only) in...
