    The Grammys had a positive effect in terms of album sales, as those nominated and those who won both received a boost in the past seven days. Despite Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city not taking home a Grammy, the rapper still saw a spike in his sales and an almost twenty-spot jump up the charts. Of course, four-time Grammy winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also benefited this past week,...

    Everyone was tuned in last night to the Super Bowl XLVIII, as the Seattle Seahawks seemed to easily beat the Denver Broncos, making many fans either extremely frustrated or extremely happy, depending on which side you were on. Although the Broncos managed to score some points in the latter half of the game, it was by no means enough to catch up to the Seahawks, who by that time were far...

    Rapper, Lyricist, Rhymesayer. All labels for one person: the MC. The MC not only has many different aliases but comes with many different personalities: the gangster, the conscious individual, the partygoer, the player, the everyperson. MCs are a dime a dozen these days. Can you name one that doesn’t sound or look like the next rapper you happen to listen to? There may be a few, but these...
  • Samples Of The Week: March 6

    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...

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. 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...

  • 10 Best Charlotte Hornets Of All Time

    In 2002 the team moved to the old home of the Jazz, New Orleans, as the game of “Musical Chairs For Team Names” began.  Only two years later, the league brought in a new team to Charlotte, and the Bobcats were born.  Looking for a change, and feeling no relation with the Hornets team name, New Orleans changed to the Pelicans at the end of this season. With the Hornets team name up for...

    This week Big Sean and Juicy J enter the Billboard 200, debuting one after another. Each rapper sold a respectable amount, however, it's nothing too crazy. Sean Don actually sold less than his debut album, although he promoted Hall Of Fame as better than his debut, perhaps the fans didn't care that much? They cared enough though-- he moved 72,000 units, which gave him a #3 debut. It sometimes...
  • Review: 2 Chainz' "B.O.A.T.S II: #METime"

    The Def Jam rapper explained that B.O.A.T.S II: #METime would be the ultimate record to self-reflect to, or gain some ‘me time’ as 2 Chainz calls it. Self-indulgent it certainly is, and we would expect nothing less from 2 Chainz, considering his swag and confidence. Before the album even dropped we knew we were in for some serious #TityBoiTime as 2 Chainz reveled in his success on the...

    It feels like Alicia Keys has been in the game for a long time, since the New York native helped revive R&B in the early 2000's. Each of her albums has been uniquely successful and she's put out hit after hit throughout the years. All the while, she's stayed relevant with her piano-driven tracks and soulful voice. After 14 Grammys and a career spanning more than a decade, it seems hard to believe...
