Since the release of We Are Young Money in 2009, Nicki Minaj has risen from femme fatale on the rise after dropping the excellent Beam Me Up Scotty to ubiquitous representative of aggressive femininity. Drake, once Lil Wayne’s fresh-faced protégé, is now the biggest crossover success in hip-hop — not just Young Money. Lil Wayne’s career has been on a slump in...

A track as a whole has many elements that come into play which gives it that timeless feel, including the rapper, the lyrics and the production. The production is what we're focusing on in this list, not necessarily the tracks that we love because the lyrics are deep or the rapper's flow...

2013 saw many breakout stars. From Chance The Rapper, to Jhene Aiko, to Rich Homie Quan, it was more difficult than ever to predict who would rise to fame at any given moment.
2014 will likely be no different, but we've organized a few artists who could very well have big breaks this year. Some are more visible than others, but all of them have the potential to make a splash in the rap...

In recent years, hip-hop artists have become more and more tatted as the trend continues to grow. Once upon a time, the average rapper may have had a few selective tats on their bodies, but it's now a usual sight to see emcees with fully tatted chests, sleeves, backs and even tattoos on the face. Artists such as 50 Cent, Tyga, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa exhibit this perfectly.
The choice of...
This week we have a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, with Mobb Deep's new album The Infamous Mobb Deep, celebrating their 20-year anniversary since The Infamous. Their sales are not huge mainstream numbers, but obviously loyal hip-hop heads came through for Havoc and Prodigy as they clock in at #49. We continue to see Jhene Aiko's Sail Out hold on to a spot on the Billboard 200, not too high and...

"Tall men come down to my height when I hit 'em in the body." -Jack Dempsey
The rap game may be dominated by rappers of average height, but some of its biggest stars fall well below that margin.
Read on for a list of emcees below the average male height of 5'8 (you may be surprised). Once again, we realize lists like this have been done, but we decided to get a bit more in depth with it. We've...
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into modelling? Modeling has always been a passion of mine. I started modeling and taking professional pictures when I was in high school. But I've always loved being in front of the camera since the age of 5.
