Back in the 80s, things were a lot different. Hip hop was just getting its start, and it was a whole lot more PG-rated than it is today. Then, along came a few dudes named the 2 Live Crew, who would change things forever with their raucous brand of hip hop.
Yesterday it was revealed that Cee-Lo will be dropping an album by the name of Heart Blanche in late 2015. His manager called it "arguably the best piece of work he's ever done." Now that's some damn good news!
At this point, we really have to consider Common as one of the great MCs of all time. Rankings aside, the guys has had an insanely fruitful career: twenty-three years, a bunch of acting stints, and let's not forget the ten albums (a few of which, at
It's not Throwback Thursday just yet, but there's a throwback clip circulating the web today that features a young Tinashe singing Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are a Changing." To clarify, it's actually a clip from the 2003 Bob Dylan film "Masked & Ano
If Biggie Smalls were still with us, today he would have been 43 years old. The influence of the rapper is still seen throughout rap to this day, and it's hard to imagine just what he could have accomplished if he hadn't met his senseless death back in 1997.

XXL Freshmen flop all of the time. They're sort of like first round draft picks in that sense. But what happened to Charles Hamilton after he graced the 2009 cover was a different story entirely: the man all but dropped off the face of the earth.
Jay Z is sometimes looked at as something of a late bloomer, and releasing his debut album at 26 certainly makes it seem that way. The truth is though, Jay was rapping for quite a while before that, and one of his first television appearances came in 1990.
Back in 2011 Young Thug was just another Atlanta rapper working to make a name for himself in this game. He had yet to break out with songs like "Stoner" and "Danny Glover," and he'd yet to link with his Rich Gang buddies Birdman and Rich Homie Quan.
"Peso" is barely five years old, but given the untimely death of A$AP Mob's Yams, it seemed appropriate to throwback to "Peso," where we had one of our first glimpses at the crew Rocky rolled with, including Yams (who actually gets a shout out in the track al
