    Last year, Waka Flocka Flame seemed to be more focused on bar-for-bar lyricism than bellowing on top of gargantuan trap beats, releasing the ironically-titled I Can't Rap Vol. 1 last summer as a culmination of a freestyle series. Since his infectious debut single, "O Let's Do It," dropped in 2009, Flock had been pigeonholed as a simplistic gangster who favored long sequences of "BOW!"s over...

    Kanye wept. Drake reigned. Dark Sky Paradise happened. This week in hip-hop can be summarized in those three tersely worded sentences. It makes sense because this week has been weird everywhere else. There's something going about a dress and llamas. Hip-hop was a small bubble this week, but it's still an existing bubble. So, of course, we got that 140 Bars Or...

    Recently, we felt our childhood selves get pimp slapped back to reality with the forthcoming allegations that MTV's "Pimp My Ride" is guilty of deceiving both its viewers and contestants. The monitors on the back of each headrest rarely worked, high-tech contraptions were added just for TV, and contestant reactions were exaggerated. Indeed, some were even prepared for Xzibit's arrival at their...

    When A Kid Named Cudi first began making the rounds in late 2008, it seemed to appeal to people of all musical backgrounds, with Kid Cudi rapping over a decidedly wide variety of source material. There were instrumentals cribbed from backpacker favorites Outkast and J Dilla, but also ones from little-known electronic producers and Pacific Northwest indie rock bands, setting Cudi apart from his...

    Hip-hop has always had its fair share of food-related lyrics-- with Outkast repping for fish and grits, Lil Wayne comparing himself to lasagna and MF DOOM releasing an entire food-inspired album-- but it's not often that a rap lyrics sheet resembles the menu of a five-star restaurant. That is, unless we're talking about Action Bronson. For the Queens native, rapping began as a hobby, with...

    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...

    There is somewhat of a divide between a club banger and a mainstream, popular hip-hop song, however, often times, the two overlap. The ever trust-worthy Urban Dictionary describes “club banger” as a term “used to describe a song to get all da bitches in the club movin. A song that makes you jump at a party.” These so called club bangers are played excessively at night...

    Gucci Mane has been sculpting talent, and promoting new artists since the beginning his career, but it's only over the last couple of years that he's been recognized as a great A&R. Part of that is because following his most recent incarceration in September 2013, we saw many of the young artists he was working with at the time earn Atlanta the title of rap's most exciting city once...
