    Bobby Shmurda has without question had the most meteoric rise to the top in hip-hop this summer, going from hundreds to millions of YouTube views in a matter of days. Along with the "Shmoney Dance" Vine, his song "Hot Nigga" is much to blame for that rise. The Jahlil Beats-produced track, originally made for Lloyd Banks under the name "Jackpot," has gotten several noteworthy freestyles out of the...

    Bad Boy Records was founded in 1993 by a lesser-known-at-the-time Sean Combs, who later went by Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and now Diddy. Combs began his music business experience as an intern at Uptown Records (that's a good bit of motivation for everyone interning out there). However, after becoming an A&R executive he was fired in 1993, prompting him to start Bad Boy Records. The first two...

    OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), more commonly referred to as Odd Future, made a huge splash in the rap world when they burst onto the scene in late 2009 with crew leader Tyler, the Creator's critically-acclaimed Bastard mixtape. Bringing dark, lo-fi sonics, even darker lyrics and off-kilter humor to the table, the rest of the crew would soon follow him into the...

     Lucki Eck$ is one of the most interesting characters in the rap game. Still a teenager, the rapper has taken the world by storm with his lazy flow, smooth beats and often uncomfortable subject matter. With two hot mixtapes under his belt in 2013's Alternative Trap and this year's Body High, the young star has proven his power in full-length projects. And after linking up with the likes of...

    In early 1999, a white rapper came out of relative obscurity and pissed off a lot of people. He was a white kid from Detroit, backed by a legend in Dr. Dre, and savvy music -industry heavyweight Jimmy Lovine. Who was this bleach blond asshole liberally speaking about slitting his father’s throat and stuffing his baby’s Mama into the trunk of his car? The answer was in the...

    Game has held an interesting position in the rap game since his monstrous debut in 2005, The Documentary. He’s acknowledged as one of the premier acts from the West Coast, but he’s been hit-or-miss with his projects since that first album. He’s become known for his chameleon-like style and over-reliance on guest features - issues that have made it difficult to grasp Game’s personal style...

    In music we tend to glorify the debut album, always craving the newest and shiniest thing out. The downside of that is usually we're slightly disappointed in the follow up sophomore album, possibly what led to the phenomenon known as the "sophomore slump". Our expectations are set so high that we tend to discount the second effort, sometimes leading us to be pleasantly surprised by the third...

    As much as we think times change, they really don't. We like the music we like, regardless of what our parents think. Then something even newer comes out, and we say it isn't as good as the old days. It's the circle of life, and the music industry should've seen it coming. Why wasn't the industry, for the most part, ready for the internet, and all the challenges that came with it? If we know that...

    It doesn't come as a surprise to know that the future of New York hip-hop looks extremely bright. Once the birthplace of rap, the city still harbors some of the best talent in the genre.  But while others coasts and regions have taken off, many have been quick to accuse New York of losing its stature in rap music. While it's fair to say that hip-hop has developed scenes throughout the whole...

    There's a certain dilemma rappers face when they finally break out of the underground, releasing mixtape after mixtape (which provides them with no financial compensation): how do you expand your newfound fanbase without neglecting the loyal supporters who were there with you from the beginning? Such was the problem that graced Pittsburgh stoner Wiz Khalifa, whose 2010 mixtape Kush N Orange Juice...

    "You have no choices about how you lose, but you do have a choice about how you come back and prepare to win again." -Pat Riley What makes a great comeback album? Is it an artist that left the scene for awhile, only to triumphantly return? Or is it more about an artist rebounding from a disappointing project, whether critically or commercially? It's both, really. It's very rare for an artist to...

    James Prudhomme, who produces as Suicideyear, is only 18, though his virtuosity might suggest otherwise. He's a guy who isn’t afraid to let his youth (not inexperience) shine through. He lets his muddled teenage emotions pour into his work. He sounds like he’s 18—innocent, moody, and, ultimately, hopeful—albeit, one of the more talented 18-year-old producers you’ll ever encounter....
