    Cole World: The Sideline Story was considered somewhat of a disappointment to fans who really knew the raw talent that J. Cole posseses. The storyteller and the street smart rapper that fans loved was missing in his debut album. This time around Cole delivers a more cohesive project, with tracks easily flowing one by one to create a complete concept: Born Sinner.

But Ab-Soul is more than just a 'rapper of the moment,' and Control System is definitely more...

    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week.

Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3. That's not too...

    The term B-sides comes from the vinyl record days, when artists would release a single, then put a little extra something on the reverse side for the fans. The tradition didn't stop when music moved to CDs, as artists would throw an extra track or two that didn't make the album on the singles disc (remember those for $2 at Strawberry's?). Now, in the mixtape era, there a lot more B-sides, and...
