Kanye West & Jay-Z - Watch the Throne

We live in a world addicted to a dangerous combination of amnesia and exaggeration. Everything is the biggest ever, the greatest of all-time, the event after which nothing else will ever be the same. That kind of hyperbole is... Read Full Review

Kendrick Lamar- #Section80

Hip-hop has declared many young emcees the savior, although it’s unclear exactly what hip-hop needed to be saved from. Materialism, shallowness, commercialization, the truth is that hip-hop has always contained the sins we... Read Full Review

Lloyd - King of Hearts

The last ten years have been strange for male R&B royalty. While rap has for the most part held steady, with Jay-Z, Kanye and Eminem forming a triumvirate leadership, R&B has undergone more changes than a Beverly Hills trophy... Read Full Review

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

Amy Winehouse’s short, beautiful and painful life ended two weeks ago. In her last few years she became something less than a person, a joke to be leered at by the public intent like a slow motion car accident. But before... Read Full Review

Bad Meets Evil - Hell: The Sequel

I get to write about a lot of albums, some of them great, some of them worse than a night in a Tijuana jail, but I rarely get to truly write about hip-hip history. Not tonight, for tonight I get to write about Bad Meets... Read Full Review

thurz-la-riot-08111101

Thurz - L.A. Riot

It’s rare that one song can sum up an entire album, but L.A. Riot is a rare album, and Rodney King is a rare song. More than just storytelling rap, this is cinema. A less confident, and less truthful, emcee than Thurz would... Read Full Review

Jay Rock - Follow Me Home

Gangster rap was the best and worst thing to ever happen to west coast hip-hop. Up until the late ‘80s L.A. was essentially a blank spot on the map – all eyes and ears were seemingly permanently focused on New York City.... Read Full Review

Tech N9ne - All 6’s & 7’s

Not everyone out there is a Tech N9ne fan, or ever really knows who the Kansas City emcee is, so before we get rolling on his new album All 6’s & 7’s let’s take a moment to educate the latecomers. Put simply, Tech, or... Read Full Review

Big K.R.I.T. - ReturnOf4Eva

Hip-hop fans, more than the fans of any other genre, are a cynical bunch. In 1979 the original emcees were convinced that simply recording rhymes would kill their culture, in 1989 the emergence of Vanilla Ice was surely the... Read Full Review
