If any rapper was going to shatter a windshield by banging their head, it would be Busta Rhymes. The "Break Your Neck" MC is clearly a fan of the violent head bang, and in a hilarious new interview, he reveals that the dance move once decimated the entire windshield on Wyclef Jean's tour bus. The music that spurred on this incident? Eminem's Slim Shady LP, obviously.

Lil Tunechi has accomplished a heck of a lot in his three decades and a year. Joining Cash Money Records at the tender age of nine, he has since spent a highly respectable 22 years (and counting) in the hip hop business.

Trinidad James sparked a minor controversy this year when he suggested that southern hip hop "ran" New York. We heard some responses from NY artists on the comments (Maino most visibly), but haven't heard from anyone from Atlanta, who Trinidad seemed to be speaking for.
Kanye West's already had a huge week, effectively breaking the internet with a performance of "All Day" at the BRIT Awards, and now he's made a big announcement on Twitter.

When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
One of the hottest producers out right now, Mike WiLL Made It has produced beats for some major names like French Montana, and of course Juicy J, and even had a cut on Rihanna’s latest album. Now, just shortly after dropping his last mixtape, Mike WiLL has announced his next project Est. In 1989 Pt. 3. Coming on the heels of his last installment in the Est. In

Purported "Fashion Killa" A$AP Rocky caused quite a stir in the garment world with his recent track "Multiply." Rapping “I ain’t really fuckin’ with that BEEN TRILL" and "HBA shit is weak, you can keep that" on the recent single, Rocky even incited a response in the form of a new shirt from BEEN TRILL's Heron Preston.

When Gucci Mane released his World War 3 series on iTunes last month, it was merely a hint of what was to come. The first shots were fired on September 7th, when Guwop and Waka Flocka engaged in a Twitter argument. As more names got involved , the feud grew nastier.

Yesterday, we got word that Chris Brown was being charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly punching someone during a basketball game over the weekend, but today, charges have been dropped. This comes after his publicist issued the following statement to CNN:
J. Cole and Drake came under fire when they dropped their “Jodeci” freestyle, as Cole World’s “I’m artistic, you niggas is autistic, retarded” offended people.

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of Drake's poesy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

Wiz Khalifa has been a supporter of the Converse brand ever since he arrived on the scene. Although his fashion sense has definitely evolved since then, we've seen the Taylor Gang head in his chucks more times than not.
Diddy has been among the highest earners in hip-hop for years, but you don't get to that spot without taking a few risks. With the sure-to-be-legendary Mayweather-Pacquiao fight fast approaching, we were expecting some rappers to put some money down on the match-up, but it'll be tough to top Puff's wager.
