    Summer is nearing it's end, and while the warm weather will soon subside, the season will be remembered through the tracks that soundtracked it.

    Rap-A-Lot Records was founded by James "J Prince" Smith in Houston, TX in 1986, during hip-hop's Golden Age, as well as the time when Gangsta Rap was slowly starting to gain prominence.

The footage showed Solange, Jay Z and Beyonce entering the elevator with security guards, and as the doors close, Solange completely attacks Hova, feet kicking in the air and hands flailing.

    Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning.

    There's a lot going on behind the scenes that isn't readily apparent from listening to a song. Though sometimes, a simple investigation of writing credits can tell you a lot. "Ghostwriting" by its proper definition refers to contributions from rappers who have not been credited-- which is a pretty grey area. Rather than look into rumors surrounding that type of writing (with one exception),...

    It would seem like a no brainer, rap and advertising belong together, but the ad industry didn't always recognize what hip-hop could really do for marketing. This all changed in the 1980s. Each side began realizing what the other could for them. Rappers could help boost sales, and rappers could, of course make money. So rappers began wearing ridiculous outfits, singing silly jingles, drinking...
