    Kanye West cut his teeth producing records for the likes of Jay Z, but has since left his mark as one of the greatest rappers of the past 15 years. His influence on rap music and culture top notch, only to be met by the top dogs in the game.

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...

    50 Cent has been through so much beef, you could probably dedicate a book to the fights he has picked. Throughout his career, he has never been shy to give his honest opinion about fellow rappers. He has mastered the art of the diss song and pretty much wears the crown for being the king at feuding. His moves to out battle his rivals have been smart, conniving and sometimes just plain...

Fortunately, amongst the clones, several voices stand out from the crowd. The following post is dedicated to the emcees who went above-and-beyond to give the listener a complete album, not just a collection of singles...

    We live in strange times — times where 42-year-old OGs beef on Instagram with Australian pop rap artists in their 20s. This ain't fiction: Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea were going at it. The "beef" had one artist recalling one that she had with another OG from the south. Also, one rapper tweeted his version of "Control." Yep, it's been an odd year for hip-hop. We also got our fair share...

This list has little to do with those moments. This is the list of absolutely awful, no-good, whack rap battles. Some may argue that being awful at battle rapping is a...

    Bad Boy Records was founded in 1993 by a lesser-known-at-the-time Sean Combs, who later went by Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and now Diddy.

    With so much great music already out this year, it's hard to think this year could get any better. But we still have new albums coming from the likes of T.I., Logic, Big K.R.I.T., and Kendrick Lamar, so it will get better, way better. One of the best parts about waiting for a new album is hearing what songs the artist picks from the project to tease us with. It's almost like getting some bomb...
