    You can never really expect what will come out of a rapper's mouth at any given moment. Hip-hop is a genre that is known for its unbridled, outspoken nature so it is really no surprise that the artists in the genre bring us some very hilarious quotables when they sit down for an interview. Whilst we love rappers for their grind and the dope music they give us, sometimes the things that they say...

    Ego, popularity, jealousy and worldwide success are some of the key factors that have led many hip-hop moguls to end business relationships, and ultimately friendships, in order to maintain power over their own careers and/or the promising careers of their counterparts.  We're all aware of some of these hip-hop leaders/tycoons that have fallen out with one another, but many are unsure as to...

    Violence isn't an odd topic in hip-hop music by any stretch of the imagination; there probably hasn't been a mainstream rap album to hit stores this year in which an emcee didn't at least threaten to kill someone. Gun violence and homicide are an epidemic in hip-hop. Cannibalism, torture, and crucification, on the other hand, are harder topics to come by.  The following list is...

    It's that time of the year again - Valentine's Day! The romantic holiday is upon us and we thought we'd share some of the love in the hip-hop community. Love and hip-hop doesn't have to be synonymous with ratchet behavior and baby daddy / momma drama, although you may be under a different impression if you've ever watched a full episode of VH1's Love & Hip-Hop. Instead of focusing on the...

    Theres no way to deny it, we are currently living in a time in which streetwear reigns supreme. Through recent years streetwear has evolved, not only taking a more fashion-forward approach but opening up doors for musicians, especially rappers, to slide through, leaving an imprint not only musically but aesthetically. The evolution of streetwear has brought a counter-culture to the forefront of...

    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...

    In the age of the internet it seems everybody can be a rapper, or at least make a feeble attempt at so doing. It may seem hard to find real talent with the game cluttered by generic, wanna-be, or insignificant rappers. That's not to say that ill emcees don't exist out there-- they obviously do, but sometimes they get overlooked 'cause some mainstream fish...

    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. Combs began his music business experience as an intern at Uptown Records (that's a good bit of motivation for everyone interning out there). However, after becoming an A&R executive he was fired in 1993, prompting him to start Bad Boy Records. The first two...
