Talib Kweli’s Letter From Ferguson

Rapper Talib Kweli is a legend. While it’s true he has been in a little trouble for a recent CNN interview (which can be viewed by clicking here), the man’s intentions have (and always will be) to speak up for those people of the world who are oppressed by today’s society. Just look at the video above, for his ultra-famous song Get By and you will be able to figure out what the dude is all about.…

Claiming to be “the last great American poet,” Bino absolutely murders this beat. Of course, he pulls the classic Drake/Bino move and flips the beat…

G-Unit Is Back, Bitches! (Editorial)

G-Unit Is Back, Bitches! (Editorial)

The group that dominated the Hip Hop spectrum in the early 2000’s is now back in action!It’s taken me weeks to write this article because honestly, I couldn’t believe it. G-Unit was the group that made people who loved Hip Hop hated by the rest of the world. They embodied braggadocios and gangsta rap to the highest level, achieving heights of success only before seen by N.W.A. and (arguably)…

Be Free - J.Cole (Audio)

Be Free – J.Cole (Audio)

J.Cole has always been one of my favorite emcees to emerge from the new school era.
Not only did the man create two of my personal favorite mixtapes, he also represents an old school, lyrical, southern hip hop appeal to the mainstream audience rap music. Clearly influenced by the likes of Little Brother and Jay-Z, J.Coleis an artist worth listening to. This song is no different. In the wake of…

Return of the Mack - Mark Morrison (SNBRN Remix) [Audio]

Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison (SNBRN Remix) [Audio]

SNBRN is a man who loves the classics! The Los Angeles, CA-based producer is one of the coast’s kings when it comes to remixing the classics, and since this classic happens to be a personal favorite, I couldn’t help but repost it. After his remix of 50 Cent’s 21 Questions, I quickly became a fan. He basically takes amazing tracks and turns them into incredibly laid back deep house phenomenons.…

Rebound – Flosstradomus (Audio)

FLOSSTRADOMUS IS BACK TO READY TO MESS YOUR SPEAKERS UP! While Flosstradomus has been busy procuring a mesh between electronic trap music and rap, the duo is now showing a new side of their production. The difference is incredible, but both styles remain poignant, listenable and (most importantly) interesting. Just think about it this way, Flosstradomus’ last song was basically a dubstep track…
