    2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown.

    Father's Day came and went yesterday, and like most of us, rappers were celebrating the day by relaxing with family and giving their dads the shout outs they deserve. Some such rappers have kids of their own and were thus enjoying the day for themselves as well.

    Eminem took things back to basics on his new LP. The Detroit rapper recruited one of Hip Hop's pioneers, Rick Rubin, to help him channel some classic sounds and ideas, many of which came through sampling.  The late 80s era of hip hop they pull from is well-represented in plenty of small vocal snippets and interpolations not instantly evident to the casual rap listener. Many of the musical...
