    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 while asking for the same. Why? Because he’s an...

    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 in the world of hip hop. His latest project, Year of the Dragon, cannot be compared to When...

    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. I mean, first of all, when it dropped at 3:05 pm, shit was crashing on the internet because of all the...

    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.   So I’m probably not the only one that thinks “Thank Me Later” was lacking, in fact, Drizzy himself said in a recent Q&A with GQ that if he...

    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...

    Few rappers get a second life in the rap game. It’s nearly unheard of to lap around the competition a third time around. But then again Juicy J is not the typical rapper. He started out with his fellow Memphis native rappers and friends DJ Paul and Lord Infamous to form Three 6 Mafia in the early 90’s. A classic hip-hop come-up story, the trio dove head-first into a non-stop grind of hustling...

    Since 1993, Sean “Diddy” Combs has always kept his finger on the pulse of trends in hip-hop music.  When he founded Bad Boy, he assembled a roster that included one of the greatest rappers of all time. Never one to rest on his laurels, Diddy continued to reinvent his label to stay current with the time. In the past year or two, the music mogul has placed Bad Boy at the forefront...

    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...

    Halftime at any sporting event is usually the time when folks go to the bathroom, get refreshments and talk amongst themselves about the game. For Waka Flocka Flame, halftime is no time for an intermission. 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,...

    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 the news for issues he has had with Young Money’s general, Lil’...

    If there’s one rapper out there that shows unfaltering consistency in his melodic style and lyrical flow, it has got to be Gucci Mane. The seasoned Atlanta rapper’s newest mixtape, Trap God 2, unveils the same playful energy as Chicken Talk, which he put out in 2006—a mere 27 mixtapes ago. As for Trap God 2, Gucci’s classically lively beats and vocal intensity is back. Unlike some...

    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),...

    It was strange when the tracklist for Old was released, as the album was divided into two different halves, but at first listen it's obvious why: they represent two sides of Danny Brown's multifaceted psyche and personality, as well as the old and the new. Garnering success after the release of his second studio album XXX last year, the Detroit-born rapper is more confident in his weirdness and...

    Lloyd Banks' pedigree as an ill emcee speaks for itself at this point. During G-Unit’s active days, Banks was widely considered the best pure spitter in the group. Very little has changed in that regard; if anything Banks' career since the early 2000s has distinguished him as one of the most technically savvy rappers out. F.N.O. (Failure's No Option) only makes it easier to argue the...

    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...
