2013’s All-Stars

2013’s All-Stars

Made 2013 Their Bitch: 2013 missed some people entirely (where the fuck were you Weeknd?) but while some artists were busy slipping, some people took the year by storm.  Who did 2013 best? 5. Pusha T King Push finally had the breakout year his solo career really needed.  While the production was not up to […]

Producer of the Year

Producer of the Year

A good producer can be the difference between a good and a great track.  A great producer can be the great track.  Some people were really really good at this. Save your time section: Pharrell.  Yes we all loved “Happy” and I love Pharrell but there wasn’t anything really impressive that the VA native did […]

Artist of 2013

Artist of 2013

Using an extraordinarily scientific grading method known as none yo damn business I present to you the first of my end-of-the-year lists.  Artist of the Year goes to the ten MCs that more than anyone else created significant buzz while dropping some of the best music we’ve seen since the early 90s.  Save your time […]

The Big 5

The Big 5

At first the Big 5 was simply a money saving endeavor.  If you listen to as much music as me (which let’s be honest if you do, something is really really wrong with you) the bills can wrack up to an insurmountable fee with the quickness.  So I decided after spending all the loose change […]

Ten Albums Hip-Hop Desperately Needs

Ten Albums Hip-Hop Desperately Needs

These albums are not real.  In fact they are more than likely never to be real.  But as a hip-hop addict, some times I get tired of shooting that good shit right into my veins and like to fantasize what pure uncut amazing rap music would be like.  A little less than nine years ago […]

Big Sean: Control (HOF) ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica

Big Sean: Control (HOF) ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica

Today if you’ve been on any music site that handles rap music you’ve heard this track.  And you’ve heard about Kendrick Lamar’s verse which by the way the internet is buzzing may be single handedly responsible for changing rap music forever.   If for some reason you haven’t heard it, it’s after the jump: Big Sean’s […]

Childish Gambino: Centipede

Childish Gambino: Centipede

The return of Gambino.  After a long hiatus Childish Gambino drops what is fast becoming my favorite track of July.  Yes Gambino has made some feature appearances since Royalty: and of course the customary dubstep track for all the white boys and drunk white girls out there: But this is just Gambino no bullshit, no […]

Chronicling the Dopest Months in Hip-hop

Chronicling the Dopest Months in Hip-hop

I didn’t realize until June 18th what was going on.  But when Born Sinner, Yeezus, Watching Movies, Yessir Whatever, and Extended Play all dropped on the same date it was clear what was happening.  May and June 2013 were the sickest months in recent rap history.  Among the amazing releases were albums from legends like […]

Pure Dopness Album Review: Yeezus

Pure Dopness Album Review: Yeezus

If you’re here to here me agree with your hatred of Yeezus, leave now.  Especially if your hatred is because Kanye hates white people.  I honestly couldn’t care less about Kanye’s hatred of white people, it’s just so common place among black men it’s not even exciting to me any more, which is why it […]

The Best Crew Out

The Best Crew Out

This past half decade has seen the return of the hip-hop crew.  A staple of the genre made infamous by likes of the Wu-Tang Clan in the early 90s.  And because I am who I am I have decided to answer the unasked question that has come about with the return of said crews and […]
