    Dijon McFarlane, aka DJ Mustard, is a Los Angeles born and raised producer of seemingly all of the most important tracks you’ve heard over the past year. While that statement is obvious hyperbole, his influence on the rap stratosphere is not, and cannot be overstated. When you have producers jack what you’ve made hot, for another artist (cough, Iggy Azalea), with no shame, it means...

    Wale may be a victim of bad timing. While most rap fans were in their glory last week with the release of albums from Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller, others are feverishly looking forward to Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is dropping on Independence Day. The release date of Wale's third album is stuck in the middle.  Ralph Victor Folarin made a name for himself on...

    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.

    Tyler, the Creator's previous two solo projects were critically-acclaimed pieces of work. The success of Bastard and Goblin allowed him to garner the crazed fan base that follow his every move, but with Wolf, the Los Angeles native has moved on to something new. Instead of the usual six-minute intro track where he discusses his angst-filled life with his shrink and...

    Two years ago, Jay-Z and Kanye West joined forces and crowned themselves the kings of rap. After an extensive worldwide Watch The Throne tour, the two went back to their separate careers to work on solo projects. Although they both welcomed a brand new baby in the last year and a half, they couldn’t be in more different places musically. While Kanye has declared himself god and delved into even...

    After months of anticipation, Chief Keef finally released Bang Pt. 2 on his 18th birthday, August 15th. Bang Pt. 2 is Sosa’s first project following the release of his major-label debut album Finally Rich, and much has happened since that time. The GBE rapper spent 60 days in a juvenile detention center for violating a gun probation, and also signed with Gucci Mane to become the newest...

    Earlier this year, hip-hop bible XXL Magazine featured rappers A$AP Rocky and French Montana on its cover declaring New York rap is back. While the focus of the game has shifted to other parts of the country in the past several years or so, there are some native New York emcees that are doing their part to rep their city. Harlem’s own A$AP Mob, led by the somewhat eccentric A$AP Rocky, have...

    Among Odd Future’s colorful cast, Earl Sweatshirt is almost reserved. Almost. Earl’s kept a relatively low profile since his return to the States from Samoa last year. He was all but reclusive until the release of “Chum” last November, a record that showed the same lyrical prowess of his debut mixtape Earl minus the outlandish alludes to rape and kidnapping. After nearly a year since...

    It’s been a long road to the top for Big Sean. Back in 2005 after hearing Kanye West was going to be at a local radio station in Detroit for an interview, Big Sean headed down there to chance fate. Two years later he signed with G.O.O.D. Music but it wasn’t until 2011 that his debut album Finally Famous would hit the shelves. In that four-year gap, the Detroit native would release a handful...

    Following the earlier release of their debut project Indigoism this year The Underachievers are back with a solid new mixtape, The Lords of Flatbush reasserting their undeniable spot in the Beast Coast movement. This new mixtape stands in slight opposition to the previous work of The Underachievers, however, that’s something we were told to expect. Previously, the Brooklyn duo Issa Gold and AK...

    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. The peak of Gucci’s Twitter rant came on September 9th, when he put moguls such as Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, and T.I. on blast. Riding...

    First things first, there's a few things you'll need to effectively set the mood for this one. $ign Language isn't a middle of the afternoon at your office listen, as we quickly learned. Fast forward to a little later at your crib, where you've presumably acquired the 40's of malt, a pile of your favorite strain, and two to three bad bitches that will really make this mixtape ring true. Now...

    Every meaningful artist takes a step back at some point in their career to dwell on their achievements and tribulations in an attempt to make sense of everything that’s happened. JAY Z accomplished this feat on wax with The Black Album. Kanye did the same on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, as did Nas on Life Is Good. By sheer force of will, Jeezy has risen...

    Although he’s been in the rap game since the early '90s, Pusha T had yet to release a studio solo album. Until now. As one-half of the Clipse with his brother (now) No Malice, Push saw his popularity rise with their hit single “Grindin.”  Three albums and 16 years later, Push, real name Terrence Thornton and his brother parted ways musically to work on their solo careers....

    Beyonce beat the system with the unexpected drop of her fifth, self-titled album, which shocked the internet, the media and music fans alike. Although B's team had recently told us to expect an album soon, (Ne-Yo almost ruined the surprise as well), no one suspected it would happen this soon. Her unconventional marketing strategy was executed to perfection, and she successfully...
