Gucci Mane's lengthy Twitter rant resulted in some pretty funny memes.
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.
Even though Tech N9ne has spent years cranking out a series of collaboration albums, he couldn’t resist inviting his (wildly talented) rapping friends to join in on the fun on his latest album, Special Effects. Most of the album's 25 tracks include features from some very familiar faces.
The Bill Cosby saga continued over the weekend when the New York Times uncovered additional deposition transcripts in which the comedian presented himself as an "unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women." Since Barbara Bowman's November 2014 op-ed in the Washington Post
The Save Money crew is still pretty young to the rap game, but if the successes of members Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa are any indicator (both MCs have appeared on the new XXL Freshmen 2014 cover) it won’t take long for them to become a household name.
After his debut album, Live.Long.A$AP, ASAP Rocky went quiet for awhile-- music-wise, that is. In the interim between L.L.A. and A.L.L.A., Rocky rose atop the fashion world and romanced some very high-profile celebrities. He didn't forget the music, though, and A.L.L.A. is certainly his most ambitious project yet.
The summer concert season is quickly approaching, as we close out the month of April. It’s comparable to Christmas for avid music fans. It doesn’t get much better than beautiful weather complimented by beautiful people dancing to bass-laden tunes. Excess amounts of cheap alcohol and THC add to the excitement at summer concerts.
After completely dominating the conversation last week, Drake and Meek Mill did so again this week, trading diss tracks and sneaky shots, and sparking a ton of response from the rap community. Unfortunately, this drama overshadowed long overdue debut albums from Migos and Gunplay, both of which should satisfy both of their loyal fanbases (stay tuned for those reviews coming in next week).
Love him or hate him, Gucci Mane has been one of the most polarizing members of the rap scene for the past 10 years. With dozens and dozens of albums and mixtapes under his belt, you're better off loving him, because he's always giving his fans new music.
Chaining days have always been a great ritual in hip-hop. So much so, that Kanye West made it the grande finale of his music video for "Through The Wire", his first major single. Last night bossman Jay Z of ROCNATION presented J. Cole with an original Roc-A-Fella chain. A sign of respect and gift for the 29th birthday of the rapper. Do you remember who else has a Roc-A-Fella chain?
Ghostface Killah goes by many names: Ghostdini, Iron Man, Tony Starks, Pretty Tone and any slang-derivative of 'em is pretty much fair game. Despite the identity crisis, Ghost has always been reliable for putting out quality music.
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.
Yesterday (May 19), Drake announced the schedule for the second annual OVO-run Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW), which kicks off tomorrow (May 21) with a Bun B tribute event and ends Sunday (May 24) with a Drizzy/Future "Jungle" show and a Boosie Badazz after-party.
Soulja No Swiping: 6 Times Soulja Boy Stole Another Rapper's Flow May 25, 2015 at 02:15pm 31,387 Views
After much investigation, it has been confirmed: Soulja Boy is a swag-jacker. Some may say this is stating the obvious, as Soulja Boy has been incorporating other rappers’ flows into his music for many years. Just by simply typing in "Soulja Boy stole flow" on Twitter’s search bar, you can find dozens of accusations aimed at the "Crank That" rapper for swagger-jacking.
Yesterday the photo above of Hov jumping into the pool with Bey while on vacation in Italy surfaced. Jay's hands-flailing jump resulted in meme after meme, and we'll undoubtedly be seeing this photo of Hov circulate for awhile. Take a look at some of the funniest memes of Jay Z's now infamous pool dive!
Since releasing his sophomore album, Honest, about a year ago, Future has been on a mixtape tear, sharing Monster last fall and the back-to-back heaters Beast Mode and 56 Nights this year.
Last week, tragedy struck the Internet as Jaden Smith's famous Twitter account famously disappeared.
Most of us have seen an epic moment in rap battles. If it didn't come while watching Eminem's "8 Mile", maybe you've seen a local competition with some ill talent, or at least a strong YouTube video that made your drop your jaw. This list has little to do with those moments. This is the list of absolutely awful, no-good, whack rap battles.
Commercial rap conversation often revolves around the same dozen or so artists, with the spotlight constricting further in regional rap discussions. This is especially true of Chicago.
Rappers name-drop celebrities all the time. Whether making comparisons about their own skills, referencing films, weaving together careful similes, or just being thirsty, MCs have been shouting out other pop culture entities for as long as we can remember. What's much more uncommon is the celebrities in question hearing the shout outs, and then responding.
10 Producers That Should Be On Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole's Joint Album Apr 3, 2015 at 09:04am 25,026 Views
On his interview with Hot 97 that uploaded to YouTube yesterday morning, Kendrick Lamar said there's "definitely, definitely" going to be a collaboration album with J. Cole. (You can find that tidbit around the 11:25 mark on the interview.)
Y'all remember "Nothin' But a G Thang"? Silly question. Of course you do; even if you weren't born when it dropped. Snoop and Dre helped birth a West Coast sound that was effortlessly funky and hasn't been matched since. Even if you've never been to Cali, we got a taste of what the lifestyle was all about.
Houston is a well-known hip-hop hub, and that's largely due to the music of DJ Screw. By pioneering the chopped and screwed remixing method, Screw is one of the first dudes to make really slow rap music cool.
Celebrities, including rappers, have been inking endorsements deals with companies since the dawn of advertising. Hip hop music is more popular and marketable to the mainstream now than ever before, so these kinds of deals are on the rise.
Jay Electronica is a strange cat. The New Orleans-born MC now resides in London, where very few rappers decide to claim home.
