    At the beginning of October we heard DJ Premier confirm that he will produce a full Nas album one day-- which got us excited, and also got us thinking about what other albums we're really, really hoping will drop in the not-so-distant future. Many avid hip-hop fans have a similar wish-list to ours-- Dr. Dre's Detox, an Outkast album, that infamous Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole joint project, to name...

    Well, it looks like DJ Khaled will in fact not be suffering from success with his latest album. His second week on the charts finds him plummeting more than 20 spots, and moving less than 10,000 units. However if there is one rapper we could say has suffered from success, it is most definitely Eminem. Em's highly anticipated album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, finally dropped this past week, and the...

    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...

So not only did we get to take in all the performances, but also had Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson stop by the tent for autographs and interviews.

    Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time.
