    Rick Ross is excessive by nature, sometimes when it's not even necessary. To be fair, he was forced to be this way after the feud with 50 Cent and being outed as a correctional officer through those infamous photos. After the flames, Ross decided to expand his myth and rattle off one No. 1 album after another (the critically acclaimed Teflon Don is the only album to peak...

    50 Cent and G-Unit made headlines following this year's Summer Jam for a very visible fight that took place in front of 50,000 viewers (70,000 if you count those online) on the event's mainstage. But outside of that seconds-long scuffle, there was a bigger, albeit more subterranean, conflict going on throughout the daylong event. It may not have been apparent to all those in attendance, but...

    After Charts Don't Lie took a hiatus last week, we are back again this week just in time to highlight three important debuts on the Billboard 200. YG's My Krazy Life, Kevin Gates' By Any Means and Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's Pinata. It may come as a surprise, but it appears as though Gangsta Gibbs & Madlib had the most underground release of all three-- we say surprise, because Gates'...

    Ego, popularity, jealousy and worldwide success are some of the key factors that have led many hip-hop moguls to end business relationships, and ultimately friendships, in order to maintain power over their own careers and/or the promising careers of their counterparts.  We're all aware of some of these hip-hop leaders/tycoons that have fallen out with one another, but many are unsure as to...

    This tape has been something that Pro Era fans have no doubt been waiting patiently for after their last releases were back in 2012. The Secc$ Tap.e 2 does nothing but feed the hunger of fans and add to the weight that has fallen onto the crew’s shoulders as it proves that the Beast Coast Movement is in full force. A fitting project for a Valentine’s Day release, although young, Pro...

    Kevin Gates doesn't seem to do much talking, but he doesn't really need to when his music says it all. Kevin Gates is a rapper who comes from the streets of Baton Rouge, Lousiana, and chose to focus on his rap life instead of the streets. His music reflects this, and in it he expresses himself in ways not many gangsters usually do.  There's a lot of emotion in Gates' lyrics, there is wordplay...

    2012 was an eye-opening year for Snoop Dogg. So much so that the West Coast rapper held a press conference in July to publicly announce that, after spending some time in the Caribbean island of Jamaica, he was a changed man. Snoop declared he was leaving the gangsta-image alone to adopt the ways and culture of a Rastafarian. There was just one problem: Dog is a derogatory term in Jamaican...

    This week we see Trey Songz maintain a spot within the Billboard 200's top 10, although he fell from the grace of #1. We're also seeing just how quickly Robin Thicke's Paula is going to fall off, as it already finds itself nearing the edge of the top 50. Meanwhile, Iggy Azalea's growing star power and excessive radio play keeps her debut album at a very healthy spot within the 200, never falling...

    I don’t believe there’s a single person on Earth who saw Tity Boi becoming a national superstar. From background appearances in old Ludacris music videos to becoming a one hit wonder as a part of Playaz Circle to having the number one hip-hop album in the country, the rapper formerly known as Tauheed Epps is an incredible example of what hard work and dedication can do.

    Tech N9ne has been in the rap game for well over two decades but he flew under mainstream’s radar for much of his career. Shooting off lyrics with the speed of an automatic weapon, he earned a legion of fans through relentless tours to small cities in the heartland of the country. But it was a two-minute interlude featuring Tech N9ne on Lil Wayne’s 2011 highly anticipated album Tha Carter IV...

    There is no one answer for why some cities get so much love in the hip-hop industry while others producing loads of talent go unnoticed. Maybe it's because major labels are based in, and focus on the so-called hip-hop meccas of the United States: NYC, Houston, LA, Chicago, New Orleans, and so on. It's time to show appreciation for the underrated cities; the cities that may have bustling locals...
