    Advancements of the infinite tool that is the Internet have made collaborating among musicians exponentially easier. Gone are the days where it was nearly impossible to create music without musicians being in the same studio at the same time. Now artists and producers are able to collaborate despite being in different parts of the country, or even across the globe. One can simply email over a verse or an instrumental that can be worked with, and tweaked, into a musical masterpiece. This makes any collaboration possible and has resulted in some incredible creations recently.

    As we know, Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino's rap career has been one defined by its unexpected moves.

Needless to say, it's difficult (if not impossible) to predict his next move.

Maybe that’s why it seems as though everyone in Hollywood wants to be in the music industry and everybody in the music industry wants to be in Hollywood (I mean, Luda of all people would understand).

    In an age when rappers seem more focused than ever on the prevailing trends, sounds and news stories of the day, Logic goes against the grain. For starters, his music is intensely personal, focusing almost solely on his daily struggles and come-up, and largely not relying on collaborators to elevate his status. This carries through to his online presence; Logic's Twitter and Facebook pages rarely contain rants or fiercely opinionated posts.

These are hip-hop's greatest concept albums. Did we miss anything noteworthy? Let us know in the comments section.

    Samples of The Week: October 9

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, see who Childish Gambino, A$AP Rocky and Cozz & J. Cole sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

    Childish Gambino's first Gangsta Grillz mixtape, STN MTN made a lot of noise when it dropped last week, but its companion piece, KAUAI had a considerably quieter release. The EP slipped onto iTunes and Spotify last night, and can now be streamed for free.On a quick skim through, it seems this project houses Gambino's more melodic side, starting with the previously released "Sober", and continuing on to some more bright R&B pop jams. As promised, everyone's favorite Twitter philosopher, Jaden Smith makes a couple appearances.
