Whether you are a fan of football or not, it is hard to avoid the excitement surrounding Super Bowl XLVIII. While the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks don’t have much fan representation in Hip-Hop, there are a host of rappers who rep their NFL team with pride.

Old Man Ebro recently tried to convey to Wale the value of having a weighty catalog opposed to having a career that was just flash-in-the pan. Wale, who is going on to make his fourth album sometime next year, will be one of the few MCs who came up in the digital age with an […]

Music fans’ voices were heard last night at the American Music Awards, a show that grants awards based on fan polls and album sales. Artists from all genres, including Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Nelly, and TLC also graced the stage.

The new gods of Hip-Hop have certainly reaped the benefits of the work of these talented groups have done. But, with music being consumed at an all-time high (thank you Yeezus), we stop the clock in hopes that these past-and-present greats can return to center stage for all of us to see!

Growing up in St. Louis, Nelly starred on his high school’s baseball team and even won MVP honors. The “Hot In Here” rapper’s passion for the game is still high, as evidenced by his appearance yesterday (July 17) on ESPN’s First Take program.

Recording artists would probably agree that a track from Pharrell Williams  is a good look, just ask Nelly. Between Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” Williams is a beast on the charts right now, and Nelly might add another hit to his repertoire.

Rappers, athletes and other celebs clearly love their Hennessy cognac when partying. The Hennessy V.S All Star Takeover sponsored multiple, star studded functions—including a couple hosted by Kevin Hart and Drake—during this past weekend’s NBA All-Star game festivities. 

Ahh yes, a Black man (okay, anybody really) getting a new job is a cause for a celebration. That gets ramped up a notch when the guy with the new gig is Big Tigger and the friends making sure it was marked with a proper event at the Reign nightclub in Atlanta include T.I., Young […]

There’s a breakout star on T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, and no it’s not the adorable but mischievous King Harris, or the chubby-cheeked lovable Major Harris. It’s Nelly.

Shortly before debuting his updated version of Behind The Music, T.I. and Tiny’s The Family Hustle aired on VH-1.

Hip-Hop and dope sneakers have a relationship that goes back as far as the inception of the culture itself. Since the fly and flashy era of the ‘80s rappers have made it a point to be seen sporting nothing less than the latest in urban footwear. Some even paid homage to their latest foot fetish […]
