10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time
10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time Jun 24, 2015 at 10:48am
The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

Wu-Tang Clan Release Official Statement Defending 88-Year Rule On Album Mar 5, 2015 at 08:20pm
The one copy idea behind the Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin seemed insane at first, but the more recent development that it could not be shared for at least 88 years brought it to a whole new level. Not only were fans not pleased that they would not be ale to hear the LP in their lifetime, Method Man actually spoke out about the decision, denouncing it as "stupid," and insisting that the music would be "played out" by then.
10 Drumless Hip-Hop Tracks
10 Drumless Hip-Hop Tracks May 16, 2015 at 01:38pm
What's that? Hip hop without the drums? Does that exist? Is it even possible? Well, it does exist in some form. While hip hop is almost defined by its drums, there are instances where rapping takes place over an absence of drums. Whether it's Nas kicking off his Untitled album or Outkast getting galactic on ATLiens, some cool tracks have been created without that classic boom-bap rhythm.

Review: Raury's "All We Need" Oct 18, 2015 at 10:18am
“Love is all we need.” This lyric off the opening track “All We Need” could summarize the message Raury is trying to convey with his music. Like Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, and John Lennon before him, Raury wants to see the world become a better place.
Review: Wu-Tang Clan's "A Better Tomorrow"
Review: Wu-Tang Clan's "A Better Tomorrow" Dec 5, 2014 at 03:57pm
It's been seven years since the Wu-Tang Clan released their last proper album, 8 Diagrams, but of course, that doesn’t mean the members of rap’s greatest clan have been prepping for an early retirement. Not by a long shot.  Since 8 Diagrams, there have been a number of efforts from Clan members, most notably records by Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Method Man. While the three collaborated on 2010’s Wu-Massacre, they have also been involved in a variety of other projects.

10 Classic, One-Producer Albums
10 Classic, One-Producer Albums Dec 5, 2014 at 11:51am
Many of hip-hop's most classic albums have one thing in common: they were all produced (mostly) by one man. Dr. Dre, J Dilla, the RZA, Kanye West, Madlib, and many more have all laced MCs with a collection of beats that create a cohesive aesthetic through which full LPs can thrive. Singles and one-offs are cool, but to compile 10+ tracks and keep it dope the whole way through makes you a master of hip-hop.

#TBT: MF DOOM
#TBT: MF DOOM Feb 12, 2015 at 02:53pm
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. He is one of the greatest producer/MCs in the game, producing his own albums in entirety long before anyone knew who Mr. West was. He's collaborated with Danger Mouse, Madlib, RZA, Flying Lotus and most recently Bishop Nehru (although we don't consider that last one too much of a throwback).
