Since Outkast began an indefinite hiatus shortly after the release of Idlewild in 2006, their unique sound has been greatly missed in the rap game and beyond. Big Boi brought 50% of the equation back in 2010 with his critically-acclaimed solo album Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty which he followed up this past December with Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours.
On April 26, 1994, OutKast released their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. The Atlanta duo began a festival tour to celebrate this twenty-year anniversary at Coachella several weeks ago, and will be performing over forty dates this year.

Marshall Mather's career has been a roller-coaster ride of success, drug abuse, WTF moments and undeniable talent. Widely regarded as one of the best MCs of all time, Eminem has no shortage of recognizable tunes and hits.

Rap’s early origins, if we are being historically correct, were partially nurtured by punk and new wave, coming out of rebellious Manhattan kids (and those influenced by the music coming out of the area).
This week Drake is knocked from his pedestal ever so slightly, as Big Sean's new album Dark Sky Paradise is ushered in at #1. Drake moves to #4, which still isn't a bad look, considering he's above rivals Chris Brown and Tyga. Fan of a Fan didn't move as much as you might expect two mainstream stars to sell-- with just over 50k in pure sales opening week.

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of select Tyler, The Creator references). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
The Aussie rapper will be dropping her Glory EP soon, and discussed some details with AllHIpHop about a track that will feature both Pusha T and Cee-Lo Green, “Right now I’m waiting for Cee Lo to send me back his part, ’cause he’s singing a hook on a song I have with Pusha T,” Azalea told AllHipHop.com. “Once I get that back, we should be good to go.

Tech N9ne Says He Wants To Work With Eminem & Get Beats From Kanye West Nov 14, 2013 at 04:22pm 15,165 Views
We recently heard Tech N9ne go crazy (and spit super fast) on Hopsin's "Rip Your Heart Out," which is just one of several collaborations the two rappers have done together.The same day "Rip Your Heart Out" dropped, we hit up DJ Skee's Skee Live show and got to talk to Tech about his music and who else he'd like to work with in the rap game.
Nothing gets us more turnt up than a fire new collaboration between two (or more) dope artists, especially if they haven't made a lot of music together before.

Barter 6. Cherry Bomb. OMEEKA. This week was filled with activity in the hip hop world, and as usual, a lot of it spilled onto Twitter. We saw a little bit of non-confrontational beef, some trolling and some self-congratulatory behavior-- so it was a pretty standard week, all in in all.
This week we find the master of all parodies, Weird Al Yankovic, take over Billboard's #1 spot with his new album Mandatory Fun. There's not much new on here in the way of r'n'b and rap, as we await the debut numbers for Common's new release, Nobody's Smiling.

It can be hard to keep up with at times, so we've consolidated all of the must-hear information from the past month, all in one place.
Future is lightyears ahead of his time. Since touching down in 2012 with his Epic Records debut album Pluto, the Freeband Gang founder has continued hustling as an artist. The sloppy, melodic flow Future introduced on Pluto has been used by virtually every trapper who’s poppin’ today, and U.O.E.N.O. it.

Last week, Pro Era released the triumphant sequel to their debut mixtape, 2012's The Secc$ Tap.e. The new tape, showcasing tracks from up-and-comers like Dessy Hinds, Rokamouth and Nyck Caution as well as the crew's more established stars (Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight), proves that Pro Era is one of the deepest crews in the game right now.

We've compiled a list of 20 of the best vintage photographs of legendary rappers together-- some of the pairs are predictable, some are surprising, and a few of the rappers pictured are no longer with us.
