Eminem-Curated Southpaw Soundtrack Features Rap’s Heavy Hitters

It’s only right that Eminem curated and spit on the soundtrack for Southpaw, which will be released this week under his own Shady Records imprint. Like Jake Gyllenhaal’s character Billy “The Great” Hope in the movie, Eminem too, is a fighter.

GRiZ Spearheads New Age Funk Revolution

This summer you won’t hear suburban hood-rats bumping Wild Cherry, James Brown, or Rick James in daddy’s Jeep, but don’t fret, funk didn’t die with bell-bottoms and black lights. It’s alive and well.

Artist Spotlight: Chali 2na

Interview by Cameron Gibson, words by Yunus Church. Rap is not exclusively a young man’s game anymore (unfortunately, it’s still too much of a man’s game, but that’s a different matter altogether). Many of my favorite MC’s are closer in age to my father than they are to me, and…

Welcome to the fourth edition of Flip the Sample. Let’s get right into the Jam. We’ve got another classic track and its inspirations. It’s pretty amazing how interconnected so much music is.

15 Of My Favorite One-Hit-Wonder Raps

That track comes on the radio with a catchy hook, bangin’ beat, and easy-to-memorize lyrics, quenching my thirst for some mainstream storytelling. It’s one of the many one-hit-wonders that have graced our radios over the years, and I can’t help but sing (or rap) along. One-hit-wonders are seemingly created using a simple…

The Dilemma With Being an Action Bronson Fan as a Woman

Action Bronson’s set was recently pulled from Canada’s upcoming NXNE festival (North By Northeast), thanks to a petition of over 40,000 signatures showing disdain for Bronson’s often sexist and violent subject matter.

Jam with Doris: Earl Sweatshirt f. Tyler, The Creator, “Whoa”

Hey music-heads. We want to put some bright, neon highlighter on a jam from a couple of years ago. “Whoa” by Earl Sweatshirt was a track released in 2013 from his first studio EP, Doris. The album was well received when it dropped, and made Earl a ‘household’ name.

KT Killin’ Them: Hip Hop’s New (And Needed) Direction

  KT is not satisfied with, nor is he following in the direction the rap game is currently headed. And he wants to help be the change. His style is simple: no cussing, and no nonsense. While some rappers are superficially spitting about gangbanging and selling drugs, KT is killin’…
