    Hip hop beats are beautiful, no doubt. But the most superb ones are done by going back to the basics by using an age-old instrument integral to the evolution of not just Hip Hop, but of all music in general: the piano. Though the piano started off being equated with classically-trained musicians, it soon found its way to jazz, which used the instrument in a more progressive manner, and...

With that has come fewer major label releases and a lion share of independent releases. With a small number of Hip Hop albums surpassing the milestone of 100,000 sales these days - or even half that number, it has become easier to gain...

    The art of rapping started off in the form of spoken word and poetry, but you don't hear a lot of "poetry" in modern-day popular rap. This could be for a multitude of reasons. For starters, the club doesn't want to put you to sleep. And Neither does the radio. For whatever reason, songs that make you think don't seem to have wheels in 2015. But that's okay though, 'cause we got you. There are a...

    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...

Vol. 2 wasn't all that good" and "Are you shitting...

    For one reason or another, Big Sean has yet to achieve that "classic album" status that's so sought after in hip-hop. Finally Famous was a charming debut, but by no means substantial enough to deserve that label. His last project, 2013's Hall Of Fame, was primed to be "classic" (what with its lofty title and Sean's use of that fickle C-word in at least three pre-release interviews), but...
