The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
It's no secret that hip-hop can stretch itself a bit thin as far as creativity is concerned. If artists were taxed every time they mentioned dollars, they'd all be broke. Fortunately, amongst the clones, several voices stand out from the crowd.
Tyler The Creator recently made headlines because he was banned from going to Australia and the UK, due to his controversial lyrics. Apparently lyrics from tracks like "VCR," "Blow," "Sarah," "Tron Cat" and "French" have been ruled so obscene, t
Your favorite super hero from the hood, Ghostface Killah, returns today with a new collaboration with musical collective BADBADNOTGOOD and MF DOOM.
Rap has an long-running obsession with food. Even "Rapper's Delight' couldn't resist speaking about grub, and when Wonder Mike dropped these words on the eighth verse of the pinnacle track, it opened up a lane that hasn't shut down since...
Stones Throw Records is a label responsible for many classic albums from underground artists, including Madlib, MF DOOM and of course J Dilla. Founded in 1996, it's built a well-respected reputation of putting out high quality rap from oft-slept-on MCs.
Bishop Nehru is one of the young guns coming up in the hip-hop world. With enough respect to have a collaboration project with MF Doom, a tour with Wu-Tang Clan and airtime on Hot 97, it's safe to say that he is in a position to blow up.
Fans of superhero (or supervillain)-inspired hip-hop, rejoice -- You may just get the genre's holy grail next year.
On certain occasions obscure and experimental sounds explode into something extraordinary.
After delivering the serene, glossy track "Medication Meditation" with Krayzie Bone the other day, Flying Lotus decides to drop another track (albeit a very different-sounding one) from the new "Grand Theft Auto V" soundtrack.
MF DOOM is one of the most interesting figures in rap music. The metal-masked villain has remained prominent in the underground rap world for over 20 years now, and his unique brand of flavor is enjoyed by critics, MCs and fans alike.
Bishop Nehru and MF Doom have collaborated on an entire album, the highly anticipated NehruvianDOOM. The album doesn't actually drop until October 6th, but leading up to the album release, Pitchfork has an exclusive stream of the LP.
During an interview with the New York Observer about the closing of the legendary D & D Studios, DJ Premier announced that MF Doom is set to be featured on a deluxe edition of PRhyme.
Bishop Nehru is a relatively new rapper, but he's already been able to make an impact on the NY rap scene, since dropping his debut project Nehruvia in May of 2013.
Recently we got word that Harlem rap duo Cannibal Ox (Vast Aire and Vordul Mega) would be making a return to the game with the announcement of a new album. Blade of the Ronin will be their sophomore album, after dropping their debut back in 2001.
Madlib seems to have a hand in everything these days. The trend continues as he announces a new album with Blu and longtime collaborator MED called Bad Neighbor.
The other week we were treated to the first single from BADBADNOTGOOD and Ghostface Killah's upcoming collaborative album, Sour Soul, with "Ray Gun." If that wasn't enough, the cut also featured DOOM on it.
"BOOKHEAD" is the latest visual from JJ DOOM (Jneiro Jarel and DOOM), and is a collaboration with famed NYC street artist Steve "ESPO" Powers. Produced by You Need To Hear This, shot in London and directed by Powers.Can you appreciate the bars here?
