    Remember the feeling you got when you heard Kendrick Lamar connect with MC Eiht on "m.A.A.d city" off his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city?

    King Louie speaks the truth: “They say you can make it anywhere, if you make it in Chicago.” The city notoriously known as Chiraq has been long overshadowed by gang violence, and those fortunate enough to make it out the trap are considered heroes. You know the statistics; Chicago has more murders than the war in Iraq. To cope with the violence, the city’s youth created...

    As you probably heard last night, Drake started yet another trend with his #HoodGrammys on Instagram. That's all well and good, but he only announced 5 awards, and to be honest there was a slight OVO-family bias with some of them (PARTYNEXTDOOR with mixtape of the year? Bruh.) So we've decided to use this week's Top 10 instalment fill in all the missing categories. We'll rank them in order of...

    Death Row Records had quite the run in the 90s. Picking up where N.W.A left off, Suge Knight assembled an all-star crew that would come to epitomize the West Coast hip-hop sound, along with bringing it to popularity. 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and others dropped classic after classic on the controversial label. The label dominated in the early 90s, but when Tupac Shakur was murdered,...

    Hip-Hop emerged out of a collective struggle against oppression, poverty, and pain.  Recently, rappers have been teaming up in order to promote an end to police brutality, even raising money for victims like Mike Brown, and spreading digital campaigns to promote awareness of the issue.

    Few names have taken the hip-hop world by storm like ILoveMakonnen has in the last few months.

    Last week saw the appraisal of one type of love and the destruction of another. Kendrick Lamar finally dropped the highly anticipated "i," and it raised more questions than hype. The song was a tribute to self-love, but he did so in a joint that sounds a bit more of an Andre 3000 song than a Lamar single. It's that #BaduBox, guys. Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose were supposed to be one of the...

    Someone once remarked that Chicago and Atlanta had replaced New York City and Los Angeles as the capitals of modern rap music. As blasphemous as that claim might seem, it’s 100% true in 2014. Atlanta has been a dominant force in hip-hop for over a decade now, but since 2010, it has experienced a lot of change. T.I., Jeezy, and Ludacris (sorta) are still around, but a new crop of artists has...
