    We've reached a day and age when a new Kanye West interview is an event in and of itself. Thanks in part to his iconic "George Bush hates black people" quip in 2005 and a pair of headline-worthy outbursts two years ago, Mr. West now commands millions of peoples' attention every time he makes an appearance on a talk show, even when the discussion centers on something as inconsequential as a...

    Yesterday, we learned that Donald Glover might not be calling himself Childish Gambino for much longer. As that's the only rap name we know him by, this came as a bit of a shock, but it's far from the first surprising move of his career. Ever the unconventional MC, Gambino is always throwing people for a loop, whether due to unexpected collaborations, attention-getting soundbites from...

    In an Atlanta currently populated with colorful stars such as Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug and Rome Fortune, Peewee Longway tends to slip under the radar. He's not as prolific as his peers, has yet to score a big radio hit and had the misfortune of being signed to 1017 Records just as Gucci Mane went away to prison, all of which make him less visible to the public. But even with those...

    Whether they're teaming up against Drake on Hot 97 or popping bottles together in the club, Chris Brown and Tyga have had quite the bromance going for a number of years now. Along with scandals and drama galore, the duo are also responsible for some of the finest pop-rap tunes in the last five years. Today marks the release of their new joint project Fan Of A Fan: The Album, so we thought we'd...

    Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever. These rhymes will have you doing...

    Waking up isn't always easy. Why would anyone want to leave the comfort of their warm bed to enter out in to the world? It almost doesn't make sense when you think about it. But we all have responsibilities, and we can't waste our entire lives away sleeping! Music can certainly help. Upbeat instrumentals and motivating lyrics can take place of coffee, or at least accompany the cup of joe as you...

    Hype Williams may have only directed four videos in 2014, but that doesn't mean we can't all remember a time when every dope hip-hop video seemed to have Hype's fingerprints on it. Countless legendary MCs collaborated with Hype Williams, including the likes of Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Busta Rhymes and A Tribe Called Quest, and also R&B stars like Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Usher and Mary J....

  • Drake's Sneakiest Sneak Disses

    On 2009's "Successful," a young Drake rapped, "Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it," creating somewhat of a mission statement for his career from there on out. In a way, those words were accurate, as Drizzy rarely (if ever) calls out anyone by name in his music, but more accurately, he's become known as the king of the sneak diss, the sultan of the subliminal shot. Especially on his...

    The rap game is all about your aesthetic. What you do, how you do it, how you look and how you market yourself are all a massive factor in a successful career. Some rappers take their aesthetic to the next level, creating something completely unique out of their brand. When they accomplish that, they can receive a cult-like following because it becomes much bigger than just the music; it becomes...

    If it weren't for the weird for-pay nature of Drake's new "mixtape" then all five of these tracks would come from the 6 God. That's not to say the rest of the week was terrible. Our Top 100 chart contained a number of notable tracks.  Standouts this week included Migos, Big Sean, Chance The Rapper and OT Genasis.

    Were it not for Juicy J, "ratchet" would not be nearly as popular a term as it currently is. He certainly wasn't the first to use the word, but over the course of his late-career comeback, has became forever associated with it thanks to frequent usage and that iconic "You say no to ratchet pussy, Juicy J can't" line in "Bandz A Make Her Dance" (also, who could forget the ratchet-as-hell...

    We know you're probably sick of all the year-end lists from last year, but we're already in the second month of 2015, and we're hypothesizing who will get their big break in the coming months. This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram. Crazy shit...

    Hailing from Gary, Indiana, Freddie Gibbs moved to Los Angeles in 2006 after he signed to Interscope Records. Things didn't work out with Interscope and Gibbs inked a deal with Young Jeezy's CTE label. Things didn't work out there either, but with the help of Madlib, Freddie Gibbs was on the tip of everyone's tongue last year, and founded his own imprint, ESGN. The collaborative album between...

    "The crown is still mine cause I drop ill rhymes." Big L, Rest In Peace. On February 15, 1999, one of the game's illest and most acclaimed lyricists, Lamont "Big L" Coleman, was gunned down in Harlem, the city he repped his entire life. He was only 24 years old.  There is no doubt the Flamboyant Entertainment CEO was destined for great things, including a possible deal with Roc-A-Fella...
