    It’s official: Pharrell Williams is back. With the recent success of songs like “Get Lucky”, “Blurred Lines” and his newest Oscar-nominated single “Happy”, Pharrell has reclaimed his spot in the R&B royal family and is killing it. Not that he was ever really gone, since he’s been co-producing for other artists throughout. Either way, the artist...

    This hasn't been a great week in America. Beloved comedian and actor Robin Williams passed away under particularly tragic circumstances at the age of 63. Plus, we saw a blatant violation of the first amendment at the protests in Ferguson, Mo., where unarmed African-American male Mike Brown was slain by cops. Although rappers sometimes don't abide by normal people logic, they're still human beings...

    This week we're seeing how Honest and The New Classic are holding up after spending two weeks on the Billboard 200. Despite lagging behind in the first week the albums were on shelves, Iggy Azalea has now surpassed Future sales-wise and she sits atop the charts at #5. We'll have to see how these two play out in the long run-- Iggy definitely has more of a mainstream appeal, especially with that...

    It’s been hard to turn on the radio in the past year or so and not hear French Montana’s rich yet slurred delivery coming through the speakers. The Moroccan born, Bronx, NY bred rapper’s rise to the top may seem like it happened overnight but that’s far from the case. Before the days of taking to various social networking platforms to establish a fan base, French Montana went about...

We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us...

    Back in 2011 Kanye West rapped the chilling statistic "314 soldiers died in Iraq, 509 died in Chicago," in his verse from "Murder to Excellence" from the Watch The Throne album, and yet three years later 80 people were shot over July 4th weekend in the city that's come to be known as "Chiraq." Common even makes reference to the hopeless mentality of his hometown with his forthcoming album title,...

    The "feud" between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather a couple weeks back got us thinking about the long-standing love affair between rappers and boxers. Both require a tremendous amount of skill, and both camps have made sincere, desperate, and hilarious attempts at paying homage to one another. Boxers have made their attempts at rap (Roy Jones Jr.'s "Y'all Must Have Forgot," Mayweather's "Yep"),...

    Last week Nipsey Hussle decided to let go X-tra Laps, which consisted of a slew of tracks that didn't make it onto The Marathon Continues, making his fans and blogs extremely happy. It also reminded us why we love Nipsey. We were able to reach him on the phone to talk about what the future holds, and also discuss his start in the rap game. Nipsey only recently partnered up with DJ Skee, the...

    Fans have been anticipating Tyga's debut YMCMB album “Careless World: Rise Of The Last King” for awhile. It experienced several delays, and almost didn't make it on store shelves because of an uncleared sample. Whatever delays may have affected the album, it's out now and it's still doing numbers, although lower than expected (around 64k, instead of the projected 70-80k), probably because of...

    Action Bronson is not your typical rapper. The portly fire-flame gourmet chef turned rapper with a shock of curly red beard, whose father is an Albanian immigrant and mother is a Jewish New Yorker, looks nothing like his peers. Sharpening his lyrical skills with several mixtapes, Bronson dropped his major label debut EP Saaab Stories a few months ago. Still not wanting to fit in with the pack,...

    This week our one new entry belongs to Mariah Carey, who recently released her umpteeth album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. While the sales show she doesn't quite have that star power she once did, it's still a respectable debut of #3. Meanwhile, we're waiting to hear the final numbers for 50 Cent's comeback LP Animal Ambition, which he dropped perfectly in tune with...
