Classic Rotation: Wu-Tang Clan's "Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" Nov 9, 2014 at 05:46pm
In the late 80s, a few cousins got together to form a little rap crew in Brooklyn, New York. Robert Diggs, Gary Grice and Russel Jones, better known as Rza, Gza and Ol' Dirty Bastard respectively, had no idea what kind of world-changing journey they were about to embark on. They were simply teenagers who enjoyed kung fu, hip-hop and probably a little weed smoke. Fortunately for us, the All In Together Now Crew were the roots of what became the mighty Wu-Tang Clan, in all their profound glory and cringing controversy.
Samples Of The Week: November 6
Samples Of The Week: November 6 Nov 6, 2014 at 03:46pm
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 Nas, Wu-Tang Clan and Rockie Fresh sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

For Ghostfac Killah fans, the "best album" debate is a heated one. There's the charismatic debut, Ironman, the return-to-form Fishscale, and I've even heard some boom-bap die-hards pull for last year's 12 Reasons To Die in the argument -- but Supreme Clientele, released in 2000, is usually the winner. That's why fans of Tony Starks ' solo work should rejoice in this news: Supreme Clientele 2 is in the works.

Rebirth Pt. 1: The Evolution Of A Rap Group May 20, 2014 at 04:08pm
Let’s face it. Real rap groups today are a rarity in hip-hop. You can play it off to say crews represent the group concept, but that doesn't necessarily cut it. When we once had a plethora of groups like Wu-Tang Clan, Roots, OutKast, L.O.X., Mobb Deep, we now have the likes of MMG, TDE, YMCMB, OVO in their place. The aesthetic and make-up of a 'rap group' has definitely evolved. Is it for better or for worse, though?
