The 10 Best Diss Tracks Of The 2010s
The 10 Best Diss Tracks Of The 2010s Jul 27, 2015 at 02:33pm
Of the many things that old heads will insist "were better back in the day," diss tracks are among the few that most younger rap fans can also agree upon. Even if you didn't live through them, the 2Pac / Biggie, Eazy-E / Dr. Dre and Jay Z / Nas beefs all produced shot-firing tracks that still loom large today-- Notorious' "Who Shot Ya" is still referenced by rappers all of the time, and Nas' "Ether" is now so baked into the foundation of rap that its title is now synonymous with a devastating diss.

Gucci Mane Announces "The Stars Of The Trap" Tour Jul 2, 2015 at 04:06pm
Moreso than anyone else in hip hop, Gucci Mane's proven that you don't need to be a free man to keep the streets sated with mixtape after mixtape. That being said, releasing music (especially if you've got vaults full of it) is much different than performing, let alone touring. GuWop just announced that he'd be touring with some friends through 20 cities on "The Stars Of The Trap" tour, but it's unclear when this will be taking place.

Who Had The Better Verse: Gucci Mane Vs. Waka Flocka Jun 22, 2015 at 01:36pm
It’s always a beautiful thing when Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka get on a record together. Let’s be clear, these two men aren’t the most lyrical cats in the game, but they bring that bravado and street lingo that we all love and appreciate. Obviously, you’re not going to be enraptured by their lyrical wisdom and they won’t have an triple entendres for you to decode like the great Marshall Mathers, but their track record is immaculate. Who can forget about how their Ferrari Boyz project had us wanting to be in the trap?

10 Collaborations We Need Jun 19, 2015 at 08:53am
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.

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.

Since being arrested in September 2013, Gucci Mane has been spending his time behind bars.

Gucci Mane has released nine projects this year. We don't have to check-- that's more than any other rapper. He also happens to be in prison. Last year, he released 14 projects from the pen, making a cool $1.3 million, and he's on pace to topple those numbers this year.  He's feeding his fans, he's feeding the streets-- though who knows if he's actually the mastermind behind any of this.
