    The day after his 25th birthday Meek Mill released Dreamchasers 2. In one day, it became the most downloaded mixtape in recorded history. It seems the sleeper has awoken, and the dream’s become reality. Once upon a time, the Maybach Music Empire was just one man hustlin’. Metaphorical bricks flipped, multiplied and the roster grew into a trinity. Rick Ross signed Wale and Meek Mill in...

    Although the initial critical reception to the 1983 movie "Scarface" was pretty mixed, with plenty of harsh reviews, it has since gone on to not only become a rapper favorite, but cement itself as a classic. Although it was panned so hard by critics, it turned out to be a box office smash. Over the years the tale of Cuban immigrant Tony Montana, who went from dishwasher to small-time drug...

    Rapper, Lyricist, Rhymesayer. All labels for one person: the MC. The MC not only has many different aliases but comes with many different personalities: the gangster, the conscious individual, the partygoer, the player, the everyperson. MCs are a dime a dozen these days. Can you name one that doesn’t sound or look like the next rapper you happen to listen to? There may be a few, but these...

    The art of sampling is no easy feat. It takes a keen ear to hear what a track develop into from a borrowed sample. Any track can contain a number of useful elements for the producer to tackle. Whether it's a drum beat, a hook, a melody or vocals a producer can take one element and use to result in, effectively, a brand new track. Many samples we hear in hip-hop are borrowed from different genres...

    On certain occasions obscure and experimental sounds explode into something extraordinary. An explosion that is heard from far away, from one end of their genre to the other, even spilling over into other disciplines, effecting everyone from A to Z with their creative ooze. Too much? Perhaps. To not overstate, however, it would be sheer madness if we slept on one of the most underrated hip-hop...

    "This is ladies night and our rhymes is tight, oh this is ladies night...," Missy Elliott sang on the 1997 hit track, "Ladies Night" that she collaborated on with Angie Martinez, Lil Kim, Left Eye and Da Brat. The song was featured on the "Nothing to Lose" soundtrack. Just as the MCs mentioned above occupied space and declared their reign on "Ladies Night", women rappers have been doing the...

    For the past two weeks, we've been polling you on your favorite versions of popular tracks. Last week Kevin Gates (somewhat surprisingly) took the cake in the "Cut Her Off" battle, and the week prior, G-Unit won the "0 To 100" contest by a landslide. Due to the overwhelmingly positive reception of Fif and Co.'s ongoing reunion, we though we'd make things a little trickier by making y'all choose...

    This week we don't have many new entries to speak of, save for Sage The Gemini's Remember Me. Depending on the numbers Smoke DZA's new album Dream.ZONE.Achieve did, we may or may not see it pop up on Charts Don't Lie next week, though. This week remains fairly unexciting, as Pharrell manages to climb up the charts while Rick Ross descends, and Pharrell picks up pace sales-wise too. YG's My Krazy...

    The annual MTV Video Music Awards went down in Inglewood, CA last night. While there was no twerking extravaganza/controversy from Miley Cyrus this year, there were plenty of other memorable moments, as we saw stars walk the red carpet, receive and give awards, perform on stage (and almost have a major wardrobe malfunction), plus, Blue Ivy was there. For those of you uninterested in watching the...

    Atlanta. Just a mention of the city in hip-hop circles conjures up thoughts of trap (and maybe crunk and So So Def-style bass music if you're a bit older), a sound that's been dominating the region since T.I. first hit the scene over a decade ago. But some artists from the A don't fit into that box, opting to cut their own path rather than getting swept up in the prevailing current. Wara From The...

    Top Dawg Entertainment, or TDE for short, is one of the biggest success stories in hip-hop in recent memory. Founded in 2004 by Anthony Tiffith, the label didn't release its first mixtape until 2008, and its first album until 2010, but since then, has reached commercial and critical heights the likes of which most other independent labels couldn't imagine. With a relatively small roster,...

    As 2013 came to an end, countless voices in music and specifically in the realm of Hip Hop projected that 2014 would be the year of the female MC breakthrough. From a surface point of view, a "breakthrough" for the female rapper sounds as though they have yet to be discovered or haven’t properly developed as artists. However, if at all forgotten, there was a notable eon in Hip Hop when...
