The Soul Tape 2 has its mistakes and cracks but is overshadowed by Fabolous' strength on the mic and the guests he brings on for the features.
It only seems appropriate that Wiz would treat us to some of his new sounds, giving us a taste of what to expect on O.N.I.F.C. Full of chilled out, smoking vibes and plenty of party anthems, Cabin Fever 2 resembles a chilled bottle of Bombay Sapphire that sprouted legs and just walked out of the champagne room with a joint in hand.
News flash, Xzibit doesn’t just pimp rides. Every now and then when X wants to he has proven he can spit, and this was very apparent at this years BET Awards show. His verse at the BET Cypher this year was nothing short of memorable, and his album follows suit.Napalm is X’s first commercial attempt since his last studio album Full Circle, which was released in 2006.
It hasn't been too long since we've heard from the other Mobb Deep member, Prodigy, who just released an album in July, but he's back again with his second release post-prison. There has been a lot of talk about Prodigy lately, regarding the controversy surrounding his relationship with the other half of Mobb Deep, Havoc. This time around though
After a bit of silence in the mainstream rap world, Twista is back at it again with his Don Cannon hosted mixtape, Reloaded. He definitely didn’t disappoint as he dropped a ton of new material to hold us over until his album The Dark Horse hits stores. In total there are 15 tracks on the mixtape, mostly original with some remixes.
Lil Wayne hasn’t stood center stage since Tha Carter IV dropped. Furthermore, he hasn’t released a mixtape since Sorry For The Wait. So when Dedication 4 was announced the excitement went into a fever pitch. Now after an array of delays Wayne and Drama have unleashed the latest chapter on the world. Similar to the volumes before, number four is a collection of beats, both new
Although Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9, Joell Ortiz, and Crooked I all struggled independently for years, in 2008 all of that changed when they collaborated for a song on Budden’s Halfway House album. Thereafter they took the title of said song and made a group out of it. Slaughterhouse even released an independent album. Yet, it wasn't until they signed to Shady
Brooklyn-born rapper Busta Rhymes has always been known for the speed and intricacy of his raps. Since his start with Leaders of the New School in ’89, Busta has released sixteen studio albums, with a staggering third of those going platinum. Frankly, Busta is a force to be reckoned with
Trey Songz started off as a happy-go-lucky heartthrob, right from his debut single, “Gotta Make It”, featuring Twista. His singles and videos have always been in keeping with the excitable conventions of contemporary R&B, for which R Kelly is widely seen as the stage-setter. His latest release, Chapter V, marks the
As the release of Kiss The Ring approached, many wondered aloud, “What does DJ Khaled do exactly?” What he’s been telling us all along, he makes hit records! Time after time the president of Def Jam South has produced the most incredible compilations. This time things are different however, this time he’s expressed his appreciation
Nas has done it again, and further cemented his place amongst hip hop royalty. With one of the most anticipated albums of 2012 now dropped the entire hip-hop community can breathe a collective sigh of relief. The Queensbridge rapper’s tenth studio album, Life is Good, is a shock to the system for a community that has become accustomed to musical mediocrity. As a
Childish Gambino has definitely come a long way from his I Am Just A Rapper days. He's found a better voice and sound, that's for sure. His latest realease, Royalty, had drummed up quite a bit of buzz before it dropped, and I was anticipating its release as well. The project does not disappoint, however, Gambino still has growth to do as a rapper. Most fans are
Chris Brown has never been content with being just an R&B singer. Furthermore, he has never been satisfied with reaching a certain demographic, and has played within the pop genre to continuously open new eyes and ears. With four albums already under his belt, Fortune acts as a compilation of all of his previous experiments. Seeing that is
Maybach: over a century old now this luxury automobile brand will soon cease production for the second time during its illustrious reign. From tanks to trains, and of course Exelero’s and Landaulet’s, Maybach has a history to be proud of. That said their legacy in the rap game is just beginning.Rick Ross began utilizing the moniker for his music group in 2008.
Curren$y is definitely a main-stay in the rap game. He's one of the few rappers who remains underground, but is still able to touch the mainstream without backlash from fans. He says it best himself on “What It Look Like”: “mainstream cheese, but I ain't actin' like y'all.” That's the truth. The Stoned Immaculate was the
Every so often an honest whisper echoes louder than lies. Hip Hop has experienced the truth of this as of late. Soul is again a subject of interest as artists like Big K.R.I.T. bear theirs on every outing. However, as the aforementioned rapper reveals, soul is not something
B.o.B. is not unfamiliar with the criticism that he's gone pop, but if this album proves anything, it may be that those criticisms are true. It's not that Bobby Ray can't do rap, he definitely can, but he chooses to incorporate rock and pop elements into most of his music.
It would be lazy, bordering on irresponsible, to run with the “future of rap” motif when looking at the hotly anticipated debut LP from Atlanta’s, Future. Fact is, the latest in a long line of talented ATL rappers, has a sound that’s not so much futuristic, as it is transcendent.
Gaining recognition after Nas famously co-signed and encouraged him, along with Scarface's timely advice, Jon Connor has had a lot to prove these days to live up to expectations. The up and coming artist from Flint, Michigan, just dropped his latest mixtape, 'The People’s Rapper LP' on April 13th under All Varsity Music, (produced by DJ Don Cannon) proving he can certainly deliver.
Casey Veggies’ new mixtape exhibits a tighter production level than his previous works, an indication of the help and experience he’s amassed since his junior high days. The songs are all originals, making the mixtape worthy in title as an album, all except for the creative bottleneck of a big record company.
Hip-Hop has become synonymous with American Pop Culture. Its styles and sounds have not only infiltrated every aspect of media, but also every neighborhood as well. Infinitely adapting to the taste-buds of today’s youth, it’s tough to remember how it all started at 1520 Sedgwick Ave.
Schoolboy Q dropped his latest project, “Habits & Contradictions” via iTunes, asking $7.99 for it. It was definitely worth the almost-eight bucks! This latest work show his growth as an artist since “Setbacks,” it displays his versatile flow and his ear for a unique beat.
I just have to say that I have never really understood the hype about Rick Ross, but the hype was at an all time high after he dropped “Rich Forever.” “If he gives this to us on a mixtape, imagine 'God Forgives, I Don't'?!!?” But, it is true that “Rich Forever” was some huge ish.
Ludacris is back in the game and reminding us who thafuck he is with his new mixtape “1.21 Gigawatts (Back To The First Time).”
Drake’s highly anticipated sophomore album “Take Care” was officially released today...but most likely you’ve been listening to it for the past week if you downloaded the leak, nonetheless now that it’s official let’s discuss it.
