    Whatup, two upcoming emcees and two dope producers featured this week.       Logic- Numbers Logic has a new tape coming soon, I think it's set to be called “Undeniable.” If you haven't checked out his first two efforts, “Young, Broke & Infamous,” and “Young Sinatra” I suggest you do.

  • Samples Of the Week: July 24

    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 (with the exception of Jay-Z's recent "leaks"). 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...

    Ty Dolla $ign delivered his Beach House 2 mixtape just in time for summer. At first glance, the tape's tracklist looks iffy. There's at least one guest appearance on each song, something which is often frowned upon by devout fans and critics. However, flooding a project with features has been done successfully before, as was the case with The Game's 2012 album Jesus Piece. As for Beach House...

    Let’s face it. Real rap groups today are a rarity in hip-hop. You can play it off to say crews represent the group concept, but that doesn't necessarily cut it. When we once had a plethora of groups like Wu-Tang Clan, Roots, OutKast, L.O.X., Mobb Deep, we now have the likes of MMG, TDE, YMCMB, OVO in their place. The aesthetic and make-up of a 'rap group' has definitely evolved. Is it for...
