    Isn't this something? Not only is Meek Mill in jail and his sophomore album is delayed indefinitely, but Jeezy also took a trip behind bars after getting caught with an assault rifle. He posted the $1 million bail, but the CTE suddenly got trouble on his head after pleading not guilty.  So appreciate rapper folks while they're here, guys. That's far easier to do these days as they're...

    “Internet rapper” has generally forever been considered a negative term. In the eyes of many core hip-hop heads, being real life-hot is always more favorable than being internet-hot. Often, however, it’s the opposite that’s true. “Bad publicity” may not even exist anymore. In today’s day and age, if rappers aren’t routinely mentioned on the...

    The age-old question under which almost all hip-hop music is scrutinized: does it pass the car test? There isn't a precise recipe for passing the car test. What goes in the living room, livens up an elevator, or tears the roof off of a nightclub, may not be suitable for the cabin of your automobile. If you asked me, I would say that passing the car test requires a certain bold, yet uninvasive...

    Forget mixtapes and albums, some of the hottest verses in hip hop come right from the offices of Hot 97 via Funkmaster Flex's famous freestyle sessions. Whether artists go right off the dome, kick something they plan on using later, or a combination of both, rappers always bring their A-game for Flex.

    The annual MTV Video Music Awards went down in Inglewood, CA last night. While there was no twerking extravaganza/controversy from Miley Cyrus this year, there were plenty of other memorable moments, as we saw stars walk the red carpet, receive and give awards, perform on stage (and almost have a major wardrobe malfunction), plus, Blue Ivy was there. For those of you uninterested in watching the...

    The reality TV show "Road To Total Slaughter" brought battle rap into a spotlight it hasn’t seen for quite some time (if ever). In addition to being a showcase for battling in general, it shined a light on eight battlers in particular (nine if you still want to count Cortez), giving each one a chance to be seen on a much larger stage. The Total Slaughter event itself was heavily...

    It doesn't come as a surprise to know that the future of New York hip-hop looks extremely bright. Once the birthplace of rap, the city still harbors some of the best talent in the genre.  But while others coasts and regions have taken off, many have been quick to accuse New York of losing its stature in rap music. While it's fair to say that hip-hop has developed scenes throughout the whole...

    It's been well over a decade since Eminem reveled in the center of seemingly every fiery controversy in popular culture. Never before had an artist dragged so many bystanders into his path of destruction. His assaults were ghastly, yet outstanding displays of rhyme, cadence and character. In the years of his prime, many would step foolishly into his crossfire, while others simply had it coming....
