    In the late 80s, a few cousins got together to form a little rap crew in Brooklyn, New York. Robert Diggs, Gary Grice and Russel Jones, better known as Rza, Gza and Ol' Dirty Bastard respectively, had no idea what kind of world-changing journey they were about to embark on. They were simply teenagers who enjoyed kung fu, hip-hop and probably a little weed smoke. Fortunately for us, the All In...

    YG is on top of his game right now, along with his producing partner DJ Mustard, the duo are being tapped as the new "Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre." Freddie Gibbs even called YG the "new Eazy-E." Whether or not you believe either of those claims to be true, there's no denying that YG is putting West Coast gangsta rap back in heavy rotation, along with rappers like ScHoolboy Q.

    In the '90s the rap and R&B scenes had really emerged in to their own distinctiveness. The R&B scene was dominated by acts like Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, SWV, Ginuwine, Mariah Carey, Brandy and Monica and many many more. Although frequently featured on hip-hop records singing the hook, artists of this genre were still able to maintain their soulful sound and be acknowledged as...

    It's possible that you've come across WELL$ at this point. We first featured him with the socially aware and haunting "Lil Tommy", but since then he's delivered "Dreams Of An Insomniac" as well as a music video for "Django"-- these three records alone are enough to show you the talent lingering within the North Carolina native. We instantly gravitated towards his music, and decided it was only...

  • Samples Of the Week: August 28

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh...

For this list, we attempt to illustrate the evolution of hip-hop's sound over time. Beginning in the late 1980s and carry through to...

    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...

    "They want that old Sosa… for what doe?" Well, for good reason. Chief Keef ran into some icebergs with Bang Pt. 2, and the ship continues to sink. The same qualities that were present on his last mixtape reappear on Almighty So. Poor mixing and sloppy delivery continue to cloud the highlights. Thankfully the beats were banging, or else this mixtape would have been a lot worse. Almighty...
