    Like boxing, hip-hop has always been driven by competition. But while the masses love it when top tier MCs go after each other in lyrical (or these days, reality show-style physical) combat, everybody loves a happy ending. After the tragic deaths of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, hip-hop has become more conscious about settling these things before they get out of hand. With hip-hop now getting...

But, after some extensive research and hours of listening to the Pittsburgh rapper, we've broken down 25 of his top songs. With another mixtape and an album due out in 2013, Mac Miller doesn't look like...

    When dissecting a massive catalog such as Hov's to rank his best verses, you really have to break it up. It would be like ranking the Top 10 sports cars ever made, you'd have to go by decade to make it more feasible. So we've decided to tackle everything Tha God MC has done post-retirement, Kingdom Come and forward to the present. Obviously, we're ignoring about a decade's worth of...

    Hip-hop and professional sports are more similar than you might think. Both fields are competitive, exciting, and allow for great debates. Rappers are often seen interacting with world class athletes, such as Lil Wayne hanging out with Cristiano Ronaldo, 50 Cent breaking bread with Floyd “Money” Mayweather, or Drake taking pictures with whoever won that evening. Either way, sports and...

    Part of the rapper lifestyle means lots of travelling, lots of fans and/or groupies, and hardly any time to settle down and wife up. Thus it may not come as a surprise that rapper seeds often get sprinkled across the states, and often times, they've got multiple baby mamas.  Some rappers have become more notorious for doing this more than others, and those are the ones we're looking at...

    Today, we take enjoyment from the misery of others. It's no secret that most artists experience creative highs at their personal lows. Sadly, there's nothing like a good travesty to really make someone look deeper and pull meaning from their experiences--unless you're Robin Thicke; then it's just an opportunity to embarrass yourself in front of a nation with an album filled with contradictory...

    When most people think of rap and hip-hop, they often only reference American artists. They’re given most of the credit when it comes to claiming the genre as their own and being responsible for its evolution, in some ways, rightly so, after all, New York was hip-hop's birthing place. However, English rappers have their own claim to fame in the rap/hip-hop scene. They are even responsible...

    Although Lil Wayne seems to be very M.I.A. as of late (apart from being featured on a few random tracks here and there) there is hope of new Lil Wayne material on the way. And what's more, it'll be off Tha Carter V. Mel Smith, the Senior VP of Promotions at Cash Money Records, sparked some buzz recently when he tweeted that new music off Carter 5 was “coming soon”.

    Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well.  Of all the emcees that rap about (and glamorize) gun violence, very few of them are actually about that life, but that doesn't mean they don't get caught up in it from time to time. We've compiled a list of 15 rappers that have been fired on and lived to tell the tale. Some cases may be more severe than others, but whether...

    Many emcees are noted for their serious, aggrandized personas so it becomes easy to forget that for the most part, Hip Hop is about fun and many rappers use their verses to tell some jokes (isn't that why they call them punch lines?). Perhaps in an era where Vevo-streamed, artistic, well-directed visuals reign supreme, we've forgotten another time when people would watch the silliest music...
