It’s been a hot minute since New Orleans ran the rap game with a bevy of rap soldiers and Hot Boyz. Dee-1 is on a mission to bring the light back to The Big Easy on his own terms with his major label debut Slingshot David (The Album).

Teacher-turned-rapper Dee-1 is giving the gift of education with his “Knowledge For College” Tour this fall.

Chris Brown is giving his overseas fans extra incentive to purchase his latest LP, Royalty, by including the Royalty International EP, featuring five bonus tracks.

Having perseverance through setbacks is a remarkable trait that is necessary if any dream is going to be fulfilled.

Think about what “Ex-Factor” was to Lauryn Hill or “You Must Love Me” to Jay Z, or, to be more current, “Jason Geter” by Dee-1, a MC who’s always prolific in […]

Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., president and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, has launched the “Act On Climate Campus Tour,” which puts focus on environmental issues featuring entertainers and other prominent figures. Despite the good intentions of the tour, last week a Fox News analyst threw a series of cheap shots towards the organizers of […]

Nas once poised the question, “Name a rapper that I didn’t influence?” It’s 2014 and his words from 2001’s “Ether” still ring true to this very day.
