2 Chainz second studio album "B.O.A.T.S II: #METime," is a heavier dose of Tity Boi's extravagant style that sold so well on "Based On A T.R.U. Story," but will it sell well again?
Ever resilient and defiant, Big K.R.I.T. drops K.R.I.T. (King Remembered in Time) for hip-hop heads to feast on. Placing a stake in Mississippi, K.R.I.T. presents a project to deliver his message that he’s a force to be reckoned with in the rap game.
Gunplay has a very classic approach to mixtapes. The tapes he's put out recently have followed the template set by vets like 50 Cent, and Dipset, back when you still got mixtapes on the corner, rather than through a zip file. This means an awful lot of this tape is made up of going in over other people's beats, recycled features, and less-than-desirable audio quality.
Cassie seems to have finally grown into her own, after suffering a few career stumbles early on. After guidance and direction from Bad Boy records, and no doubt her boyfriend, Diddy, her progress as an artist can be heard on her new mixtape, Rockabyebaby.
Starvation 2 kicks in and you realize you're hungry for an Ace Hood track as the synth-heavy, hi-hat hitting "Root of Evil" starts and the production is instantly impressive - with lyrics that come off as a warm-up, as it's just the opening track.
Montana’s latest mixtape, which released November 20th, is a project that suffers many of the ills that plague mass appeal works. Mileage will vary by entire degrees here. For better or worse, Mac and Cheese 3 is a testament to the shift in rap culture toward more niche work. For all of that, the mixtape itself straddles the fence; it isn’t terrific or terrible.
It’s been a while since Joe Budden has blessed fans with an album, as the last studio album he released was Padded Room in 2009. Fans that have been listening to Joey since his mixtape days will be able to identify with Mouse’s new found
J.Cole is following the formula that seems to be the norm in the rap game nowadays. In a quest to drum up some buzz for his sophomore album, the Roc Nation rapper has released some new free music. Fans were a little disappointed when Born Sinner, originally slated for a late January release, suffered a few delays. To make up for the wait, J. Cole released Truly Yours, a five-track EP.
Yo Gotti has been in the rap game for well over a decade. Though he has been popular in his hometown since the beginning, Yo Gotti tirelessly worked the mixtape and underground circuit, steadily building a buzz by collaborating with various artists such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Birdman, Bun B, 8Ball and Jadakiss. His studio debut suffered a series of delays but Live From The
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
Juelz Santana is back with vengeance and we can only hope that he's here to stay this time. God Will'n is the first mixtape from Santana since Blow, which was a joint mixtape with Lil Wayne. Fans of the Diplomats rapper have been waiting for him to get back on the scene for quite sometime. The Harlem native has promised new material a number of different times, but due to
Fabolous hasn't released a studio album since 2009 but has dropped four strong mixtapes in the three years since, the latest of which was The Soul Tape 2, a mixtape that should convince label heads to give Fabolous the distribution he deserves. The first two tracks are dope and gives hope that this will be a classic mixtape by the Brooklyn rapper, but then he segways into "Bite,"an unimagina
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
Pusha T has by no means been quiet over the last couple of years, but it has been a while since we heard a new mixtape from the G.O.O.D. music signee. Push has kept himself on the blogosphere with a number of singles, and his part in the G.O.O.D. Music compliation album, Cruel Summer. His name has also been in
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
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.
In all honesty fans of Rockie Fresh's earlier tapes like Rockie’s Modern Life and Otherside may mark Electric City as a departure from the lyricism and alternative qualities of those efforts. The degree of departure will definitely vary between listeners, but overall the spirit of early Rockie Fresh is pretty clearly present here.
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
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.
Joe Budden has been known to let it all hang out musically, and A Loose Quarter is no different. This is Joe’s first solo project that wasn’t named Mood Muzik since Halfway House. There has been a lot of talk about the self proclaimed King of New Jersey surrounding his relationship with his new girlfriend, Kaylin Garcia, and his addition to the upcoming season of "Love and
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.
Kanye West has certainly gathered a nice squad of lyricists over at G.O.O.D. Music. None fit in better than CyHi The Prynce. Following the release of his fellow G.O.O.D. Music compadre Pusha T's Wrath of Cocaine mixtape, the Atlanta rapper drops Ivy League: Kick Back, which is a follow up to his widely popular Ivy League Club mixtape that was released to great fanfare in 2012.
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
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
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.
