    While never officially released as a single, A$AP Rocky's "Pretty Flacko" quickly became a favorite among the rapper's fans. When Rocky and producer Spaceghostpurrp had a falling out, it seemed the magic of Flacko may never be recreated, but a couple weeks back, Nez & Rio stepped up to give the rapper an equally menacing beat for "Pretty Flacko 2".As usual, the song had a considerable Houston...

    Rapping and acting have gone hand-in-hand since the days of Krush Groove. Pioneers like Heavy D, 2-Pac, LL Cool J and Queen Latifah made the move not only acceptable but honorable as well. Since then not only have rappers added to their accolades by hitting the silver screen, others have stepped off the stage and grabbed the mic in turn. What follows is a list highlighting the current kings of...

    Top Dawg Entertainment, or TDE for short, is one of the biggest success stories in hip-hop in recent memory. Founded in 2004 by Anthony Tiffith, the label didn't release its first mixtape until 2008, and its first album until 2010, but since then, has reached commercial and critical heights the likes of which most other independent labels couldn't imagine. With a relatively small roster,...

    If you're on the East Coast like we are, you probably walked outside in the last few days and noticed something; it's fucking cold out. Where'd that come from? It feels like just yesterday we were riding around with our windows down bumping "Hot Nigga" remixes and enjoying our Summer. As the leaves start to turn different colors and our t-shirts start getting covered by our hoodies, we need...

    It only took one day for Iamsu!’s debut album, Sincerely Yours, to reach iTunes’ top album charts, a feat which is, quite frankly, surprising. Though the album is not a flop, it’s not a work of artistic genius either. There is nothing about this album that differentiates it from his previous seven albums, and many of the songs on it sound alike. The Richmond rapper’s...

    Right now we're anxiously awaiting the first week numbers for both Logic and T.I. with their respective albums Under Pressure and Paperwork. Earlier in the week we found out just how close this race will be-- the two are literally neck-in-neck, with both rappers receiving projections of between 65,000 to 70,000 copies. It'll definitely be interesting to see who tops who. Meanwhile, The Game and...

    This week's search for a remix had us stumbling upon this Chi Duly version of everyone's latest jam stuck on repeat, "Club Goin' Up On A Tuesday," by ILoveMakonnen (most likely the Drake-remixed version). Chi Duly is a producer and DJ based in New York, NY. His remixes and originals are fresh, and the way he uses catchy melodic phrases is reminiscent a little of DJ...

    B.o.B. is one of those artist that currently stands in a grey area: he's attained mainstream success thanks to catchy tunes, but he's also a seasoned rapper, and finds himself balancing between full-out pop music and more hardened hip-hop. So who are his main fans, the picky hip-hop heads or the avid radio listeners? On No Genre 2 he makes a plea for both.  Three years, two albums and two...

    Mac Miller recently dropped his latest effort, the “Macadelic” mixtape. I haven't really had feelings towards Mac Miller, good or bad; I've enjoyed some of his stuff, but he's not an artist who's in heavy rotation on my iPod. Nonetheless, this was a free tape, so why not give it a listen.  I enjoyed it more than I anticipated, and I think he went in a slightly different direction...

    Although he’s been in the rap game since the early '90s, Pusha T had yet to release a studio solo album. Until now. As one-half of the Clipse with his brother (now) No Malice, Push saw his popularity rise with their hit single “Grindin.”  Three albums and 16 years later, Push, real name Terrence Thornton and his brother parted ways musically to work on their solo careers....

    In the age of the internet it seems everybody can be a rapper, or at least make a feeble attempt at so doing. It may seem hard to find real talent with the game cluttered by generic, wanna-be, or insignificant rappers.

    You can never really expect what will come out of a rapper's mouth at any given moment. Hip-hop is a genre that is known for its unbridled, outspoken nature so it is really no surprise that the artists in the genre bring us some very hilarious quotables when they sit down for an interview. Whilst we love rappers for their grind and the dope music they give us, sometimes the things that they say...
  • Samples of The Week: October 9

    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...
