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...

    After Charts Don't Lie took a hiatus last week, we are back again this week just in time to highlight three important debuts on the Billboard 200. YG's My Krazy Life, Kevin Gates' By Any Means and Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's Pinata. It may come as a surprise, but it appears as though Gangsta Gibbs & Madlib had the most underground release of all three-- we say surprise, because Gates'...
  • Samples Of The Week: January 30

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh huh...

    On paper, hip-hop and opera seem like completely different styles of music, but many producers have shown us otherwise. Using dramatic, often high-pitched vocal samples, they add a theatrical element to rap tracks. The vocals can come from samples of actual operas or, more commonly, presets on synths or keyboards, and they've been used by everyone from Three 6 Mafia to RiFF RAFF to Tech...

    Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200. And if DJ Khaled's low sales projections are correct, Khaled probably won't top Drizzy either next week. Dom Kennedy's album Get Home Safely sold over 13k opening...
