2013 is creeping to a close. While we experienced an immense amount of Hip-Hop struggle this year, there were some highlights that we can look back to that actually moved the culture forward.
On this day (Nov. 14) in 1964, Joseph Ward Simmons was born in the borough of Queens, New York, and the world has never been the same since.
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!
