Eminem

#1 - Eminem - Survival

It takes a lot of skill, backing, preparation, money and luck to survive in the rap game. One minute you're on top and the next you're working behind the counter at Burger King. As a 17-year-veteran of the music industry,...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#2 - Lupe Fiasco - SLR 2 (Kendrick Response)

On his explosive contribution to Big Sean's Control, Kendrick Lamar insisted that his only peers were Jigga, Nas, Eminem and Andre 3000. “The rest of y'all new n**gas just new n**gas, don't get involved.” With over a...Read More

Earl Sweatshirt

Jay Z

#4 - Jay Z - Picasso Baby [A Performance Art Film]

Back in June, Jay Z made history by selling a million copies of an album weeks before it was scheduled to drop. In July, he followed that feat up by making his and director Mike Romanek's Picasso Baby video one of the most...Read More

Fabolous

#5 - Fabolous ft. 2 Chainz - When I Feel Like It

If Fabolous were to write up a to-do list, there'd be only one item on it: “whatever I damn well please.” And he'd probably never get around to checking it off because, as a man who does whatever he damn well pleases,...Read More

A$AP Ferg

#6 - A$AP Ferg - Hood Pope

After his election in March, Pope Francis made news by turning down much of the traditional finery, ditching the ermine cape and red loafers and downgrading the gold cross and papal ring to, respectively, iron and silver....Read More

2 Chainz

#7 - 2 Chainz ft. Cap 1 - Where U Been?

Aside from science, math class was the bane of my existence; I could never get the hang of it no matter how hard I tried (I swear, mom). Despite my hatred, however, some math does come easy for me. For example, 2 Chainz plus...Read More

Nas

#8 - Nas x J. Cole - Made Nas Proud

On Let Nas Down, a standout cut off his freshly-minted sophomore set, J. Cole harked back to 2011, describing his reaction when his musical idol criticized Cole World lead single Work Out. As it turns out, though, Cole had it...Read More

Drake

#9 - Drake ft. J. Cole - Jodeci [Freestyle]

As if last Tuesday's album release wasn't enough, this weekend has been full of dope surprises for J. Cole fans. In addition to getting cosigned by one of his musical idols on Made Nas Proud, the Roc Nation standard-bearer...Read More

Jay Z

#10 - Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake - Holy Grail

Though one million lucky owners of Samsung phones had the opportunity to download Jay-Z's latest album on the Fourth, the rest of us are still waiting ever-so-patiently for the project's retail release tomorrow. And by...Read More

Game

#11 - Game ft. 2 Chainz & Rick Ross - Ali Bomaye

When Muhammad Ali squared off against George Foreman in 1974's Rumble in the Jungle, Congolese audience members cheered the former by shouting, “Ali Bomaye!”, meaning, “Ali, kill him!” in Lingala. On the latest single...Read More

ScHoolboy Q

#12 - ScHoolboy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar - Collard Greens

As a result of his rising stature in the rap game, ScHoolboy Q's got a little extra change jingling in his pockets. And he knows exactly what he's going to invest it in: Collard Greens. Not the kind you eat with peas and...Read More

Stalley

#13 - Stalley ft. Schoolboy Q - NineteenEighty7

If you ask me, the best year ever was 1988 (It just so happens that was my birth year.). After listening to Stalley’s latest effort, however, I think NineteenEighty7 may give ’88 a run for its money. West Coast veteran...Read More

T.I.

#14 - T.I. ft. Lil Wayne - Wit Me

Earlier this year, T.I. added his name to the growing list of major-label expatriates, taking advantage of the expiration of his decade-long contract with Atlantic Records to sign with independent label EMPIRE through his own...Read More

Action Bronson

#15 - Action Bronson ft. Big Body Bes - Watersports

One look at Action Bronson might bring you to the conclusion that he isn't too fleet-of-foot, but you'd be surprised to find out that he is pretty athletic. Heck, the man can even do a cartwheel! Proving his athleticism goes...Read More

Future

#16 - Future - Honest

Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Future may seem like an incongruous trio, but they have at least one key trait in common: they're all Honest to a fault. Rather than candidly admitting his mistakes, as the first U.S....Read More

Rick Ross

#17 - Rick Ross - I Wonder Why

Sometimes, it makes sense for an artist to liberate one of his or her best records as a stand-alone release. A high-quality loosie never fails to leave fans hungry for more. The latest effort from Rick Ross? Well, I Wonder...Read More

Curren$y

#18 - Curren$y - I Can't Stop

Following his collabo with Wiz Khalifa (Toast) in May and a freebie feature in June (Grizzly) you’d think Curren$y was due for a vacation this month. However, upon the delivery of yet another summer release, the...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#19 - Big K.R.I.T. - MULTI

Though Big K.R.I.T.'s latest street album spawned several reader-acclaimed singles prior to its arrival in April, the project is still home to MULTIple potential hits just waiting to be unleashed. Today, the Mississippi...Read More

E-40

#20 - E-40 ft. Danny Brown & ScHoolboy Q - All My N*ggaz

Time for a pop quiz: what are the top three items on E-40's priority list? If you answered “cash,” “paper” and “currency" (in any order), then congrats; you are correct. On the latest single off his forthcoming...Read More

Tito Lopez

#21 - Tito Lopez - Black Dude, Spanish Name

The forthcoming third entry in Tony Touch's The Piece Maker mixtape series will find the NYC DJ joined by a downright awe-inspiring array of rap heavyweights. If one name could be said to overshadow the rest, however, Eminem...Read More

T.I.

#23 - T.I. ft. B.o.B, Problem, Trae Tha Truth - Problems

As the title of his last full-length, Trouble Man, attests, T.I.'s seen more than his fair share of setbacks over the course of his career in the game. Recently, though, the tide seems to have turned. On this freshly-released...Read More
