ATLien and Goodie Mob MC Big Gipp is catching heat after posting his views on the family structure and sexuality.

2015 continues to be a fruitful year for rap music, free releases included. Tonight, French Montana and Fetty Wap will add their collaborative project, Coke Zoo, into the mix, from which we receive an early listen of the Diddy-assisted intro “First Time.”

The runaway success of Straight Outta Compton has made it cool for embodiment of everything the N.W.A stood for and revisiting the music as well.

Proud New York rap veteran DJ Kay Slay organized a call to arms with “NYC Shine,” featuring Sheek Louch, Joell Ortiz, and Sauce Money. But that’s to be accepted, as the Hot 97 DJ has been organizing posse cuts featuring hometown MCs.

DJ Kay Slay calls on fellow New York rappers Papoose, Vado and Ransom to lay down bars in his newest track titled, “Real Hip Hop.”

DJ Kay Slay can rally up a list of New York City rappers at the drop of a hat. That was the formula on the “Keep Calm (Remix),” which features French Montana, Chinx, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Gooney and Miami’s Rico Love.

Who can say that they saw this coming? DJ Kay Slay returns with a big Hip-Hop moment in tow on a track title “Free Again,” featuring Fat Joe and 50 Cent.

Hip-Hop has matured into a melting pot with representatives from all over the world, but Styles P, Sheek Louch, and Vado remind folks where everything started at on “The Sound Of NYC.” This track is the first release from DJ Kay Slay‘s forthcoming mixtape The Last Champion.
