Drake's rumored to be dropping "Views From The Six" in just over two months, so here's what we're looking for when it arrives.

Chance The Rapper and Lil B's collection of freestyles was released two days ago, for free. Chalk-full of positive moments from both MCs, the tracks are more proof that these are two role models hip hop could definitely use.
By dropping his newest mixtape Black Dollar, Rick Ross added another great addition to his line of releases, album and mixtapes alike. It always seems to be that mixtapes hit harder than albums (remember Rich Forever?), but let's divert our attention back to Ross' albums for a minute.
Although it doesn’t yet have a release date, Kid Cudi’s Speedin’ Bullet To Heaven seems like it could arrive any day now. Back on the Fourth of July, Cudder said the album was 98% done, and with the first single (“Confused”) dropping last week, we’re now officially in #CudderSeason.
At just nineteen years old, Herbert Wright has built quite the name of himself. The Chicago native, who goes by the name G Herbo (formerly Lil Herb), has worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Chance The Rapper, amongst others.
15 People, Places & Things Tyler, The Creator Disses On "Cherry Bomb" Apr 13, 2015 at 12:40pm 28,905 Views
What do 2dopeboyz, Bruno Mars and Kendall Jenner all have in common? They've all been dissed by Tyler, The Creator at some point during his career. Following the Coachella show in which he dissed that aforementioned member of the Kardashian brood, the Odd Future lightning rod dropped Cherry Bomb, and along with its music came a whole host of additional insults.
When you think hip-hop, North Carolina is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Nevertheless, hip-hop knows no borders and thanks to the internet, we often don't know the regions of the music we receive either. Back in the mid '90s, the most well-known rapper from NC could very well have been Petey Pablo, but with J.
It’s been five years since the original Pilot Talk instalment and three years between studio releases for New Orleans rapper Curren$y.
Lil Herb's long-awaited mixtape, Ballin' Like I'm Kobe, arrives today. From what we've heard, it aims to match the incredible artistry we heard on Welcome to Fazoland and Pistol P Project. Last night, to properly anticipate the release, Herb shared a new track, "Gang In This Bitch," with his closest collaborator, Lil Bibby.
The world of hip-hop is affiliated with glamour, partying, money and fun! It’s no wonder why so many rappers flock to the industry each year. But only the rappers that make it big get to enjoy these activities. There are tons of rappers in the game but only a select few make it stardom, to the point where everyone knows their names.
2014 is over and done with, and we the hip-hop community are moving onto greater endeavors. After an overall mediocre year for rap albums, 2015 is destined to be different. Hip-hop's biggest names are all scheduled to release albums this year, and the timing could not be more right. Today, who better than Rae Sremmurd to kick off the new year of releases with their debut album, Sremm Life.
When Young Thug's on the mic, any topic's fair game. He'll reference kids movies and famous gangs side-by-side, name-drop close friends who are unknown to the rest of the world, and arrive at conclusions in the most roundabout ways possible (who else orders "boneless chicken like an egg"?).
Eminem's lengthy career has been littered with various endeavors, but the projects he attaches himself too always seem to make sense-- he's not out here making frivolous moves just 'cause. From producing for select artists, to forming his own label Shady Records, to working on movies like "8 Mile," it's usually something that hits home for Em.
Shock value was everything for Odd Future when they were getting started. Whether donning ski masks and performing alongside possessed-looking girls on Jimmy Fallon, detailing ridiculously violent sexual encounters, or mixing seemingly-lethal drug cocktails in their music videos, the L.A. crew first got attention for their antics, in addition to their considerable talents.
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.
The hottest beats is a misnomer for this list of 20 productions that shaped the commercial sound of hip-hop culture in 2014. Of all the thousands of tracks produced each year under the umbrella of hip-hop, we could only honor a select few as standing above the crowd.
With yesterday's news from A$AP Yams that the Mob's debut album was officially scrapped, the only positive news was the promise of new music. Yams tweeted that while the compilation album was cancelled, we'd get a mixtape in October from A$AP Nast as well as a new album later this year from Rocky. So we can't be that mad, right?
Rappers are not only given a talent to create stunning lyrical masterpieces, but often times, they've also survived incredibly rough upbringings and dangerous circumstances. While some document their story and their struggle in song, there are often plenty of details overlooked, which is why getting a biography on your favorite rapper is usually pretty exciting.
Young Thug's Barter 6 has been surrounded by controversy ever since the would-be title, Tha Carter 6, was revealed, and finally leading up to its ultimate release on April 16th. Now that it’s finally here at long last, listeners around the world are scanning it for possible lashes at other emcees, hard bars, and bangers.
Born and raised in Philly, DJ Drama has made a name for himself in the hip hop game over the years. While his career set sail after becoming the official DJ for T.I., he has played a crucial role in the onset of mixtapes in the rap world. The Golden Mixtape Era, which started about ten years ago, is now stronger than ever.
MellowHigh is an offshoot of the Odd Future group MellowHype. It gets a tad complicated, but stay with us now. MellowHype = Hodgy Beats (rapper) + Left Brain (producer) But when you add weedhead Domo Genesis in the mix, it becomes MellowHigh...usually. Sometimes they forgo the Left Brain production for someone else, too.
I don't know where you were when the sad wars hit, but if Yung Lean and his Sad Boy affiliates ushered in an era where 15-year-old Swedish kids crying over pokemon cards, clad in North Face, are spawning articles in swanky East Coast outlets, now seems like the time to honor the tradition of hip-hop tear jerkers that broke your heart but didn't actually make you cry that one time.
There's a certain part of Sean "Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy" Combs that will always live in the '90s. Everyone relives their glory days, and few had days more glorious than the Bad Boy architect's were from the time Notorious B.I.G.'s first album dropped until he shortened his name in 2001.
Tory Lanez is a 22 year old with a super-bright future ahead of him. Features with Meek Mill, Rick Ross, French Montanta, and The Game might prove that much, but thirteen mixtapes and a recent EP alongside super-producer squad Wedidit certainly drive the point home.
More than perhaps anyone else this decade, Terius Nash (AKA The-Dream) has been R&B's go-to behind-the-scenes man. Although his solo career has attracted a ravenous, cultish following, The-Dream's biggest smash hits (and paychecks) have come courtesy of his songwriting. He's penned tracks for Rihanna, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Mary J.
