    The Marshall Mathers LP dropped in 2000 and became the fastest selling solo album of all time, influencing a whole generation of artists with its unique and in-depth look into the bizarre world of Eminem. The album was sandwiched in between Slim Shady LP and The Eminem Show – two other classic albums that are every bit as influential today as they were a decade ago. The same cannot be said of...

    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...

The weather might be cooling down, but this summer isn't going away lightly. There's been a...

    Yo.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of anything Drake ever drops). 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...

    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...

    In 1993 West coast Hip Hop was at the top of its game. Suge Knight, The D.O.C, and Dr. Dre had formed the now infamous record label Death Row Records. The new label had released Dre’s album The Chronic (1992) to huge fan fare, solidified G -Funk as a proper Hip Hop style (sorry Too $hort), and were quickly becoming the most important players in the game. So what was left to do? Release perhaps...
