Tyga was overshadowed by Chris Brown on their mixtape and it’s easy to forget he’s part of Young Money, but dude is actually pretty dope.

Here’s his video for his verse on Regular Girl from his Fan of a Fan mixtape with Chris Brown.

Ever see the movie Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme? It explores the art of truly coming off the top of the dome with clever lyrics.

Here’s the latest Creative Control collabo with Curren$y.

The video is typically cinematic and the track is reminiscent of something off a soundtrack from a 70’s blaxploitation film.  It’s appropriately called Soundbombing.  Check it out.

Remember Kev Brown? He produced the best version of The Black Album other than the official version.

Here is a video featuring a couple of new songs from his upcoming project with Kaimbr under the name Alexander Green. This one is strictly for the underground. If you

The 1982 album by Statik Selektah and Termanology was one of my favorite albums last year. Here’s the video for The Radio off that project.

Like its title suggests, 1982 is throwback hip-hop.  The sound does not reach back to the 80’s though.  Instead, it lands in the early to mid-90’s, the golden age, and

It’s been 14 years since the death of Biggie Smalls and even longer for Tupac Shakur. Still, the murders remain unsloved.

Earlier this month, news broke that new leads in The Notorious B.I.G.’s murder have been uncovered and the case has been re-opened. Will we finally learn the truth? In the

Dr. Dre’s second release from Detox, I Need a Doctor ft Eminem, could not be more different than Kush.
