    The Marshall Mathers LP dropped in 2000 and became the fastest selling solo album of all time, influencing a whole generation of artists with its unique and in-depth look into the bizarre world of Eminem. The album was sandwiched in between Slim Shady LP and The Eminem Show – two other classic albums that are every bit as influential today as they were a decade ago. The same cannot be said of...

    Rich Homie Quan dominated the summer with his smash single “Type of Way.” The song made its way onto the Billboard chart and helped catapult the Atlanta rapper’s career (and bank account) into a new stratosphere. Before he drops his debut album, the Atlanta native released the DJ Drama-hosted I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In mixtape with the hopes of proving that he’s much more than a...

    Meek Mill has been through hell and back. He’s only 26-years-old but on the streets, age-wise that makes him a veteran. Growing up in the gritty, unforgiving city of Philadelphia, Meek, real name Robert Williams, fell into the same trap that a lot of his friends and many others in his age group that grew up in the same type of environment. After grinding on the streets (and a brief jail stint),...

    When Young Money released their We Are Young Money album four years ago, they were undeniably the hottest team in hip-hop. Lil Wayne's army was young and hungry, as artists like Tyga and Nicki Minaj had yet to develop into superstars. Veterans such as Mystikal and Busta Rhymes have since joined the Young Money militia, though have failed to make a lasting impact with the group. Fast forward to...

    Though he did fall off the map for a while, fans will remember 2012 as the year Game made his triumphant comeback. First, he released The R.E.D Album to critical acclaim and followed that up with the recent release of Jesus Piece - an album that could go down as one of Game's best. From the eerie synth in the opening seconds of "Scared Now" to the last thought-provoking lyrics of "Blood...

    SBTRKT took the world by storm with his first LP. Released at the base of the alternative R&B explosion, the album perfectly blended dance music and soul, even catching the eye of Drake and inspiring him to drop a verse on "Wildfire," which in turn became more popular than the original (but that's every day for Drake). How will SBTRKT's second album stack up to the first one? Let's...

    Throughout Welcome to Forever Robert Bryson Hall II reflects upon the last year of his career. The opening title track recalls when Logic met Nas for the first time in the line, “Shook his hand then he started quoting my lines? God damn this is real life!” A certain hunger and drive are present in the Maryland native's voice. The intensity and the leisurely style that he rhymes with have...

    PARTYNEXTDOOR is Canadian rising star Jahron Brathwaite, formerly a producer of soft, sunny R&B with EDM inflections. His first wide release under the new name represented a new label situation, through signing with Drake’s OVO Sound, and a fully realized change in sound and lyrical content. Taking a sexually aggressive tone, with dark, bass heavy atmospheres, PARTYNEXTDOOR combines it...

    Joell Ortiz changed this album’s title from Yaowa, basically because this is him at his most comfortable. In Hip Hop, getting too comfortable can sometimes lead to a decline in effort due to loss of hunger. Anyone familiar with Joell Ortiz would probably find it hard to imagine him not putting effort into a project, comfortable or not. Joell is always known for remarkable lyricism and...

    Who is Theophilus London, anyways? The Brooklyn-based, Trinidad-born 27-year old isn't really an MC, but he doesn't really sing all the time either. He cares about The Smiths more than he cares about Gang Starr and for some reason all of this attracts the likes of Kanye West to take on the roll of executive producer on his newest album Vibes.  He's released a few mixtapes and a...

Instead, it’s a period to continue carrying the heat.   So is the case with the latest mixtape in Waka’s DuFlocka series, DuFlocka Rant: Half-Time Show The 19-track opus,...

    From the moment they came onto the rap scene with their debut album in 1994, Outkast proudly wore their individualism on their sleeves and in their music. Always one step ahead of the curve, Outkast coupled dirty Southern rap with funkadelic beats and became one of the most successful hip-hop groups ever. 16 years and 25 million albums sold later, Big Boi left the comfort and safety net of a...

    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.  A few songs into the tape, however, from "Root of Evil" to "Fuck Em All", one realizes that the production sounds eerily alike,...
