First the Fat Boys breakup, then the Fugees breakup, and now Slaughterhouse? Just a few days after Slaughterhouse founding member Kxng Crooked announced that he was leaving the group, Royce Da 5’9″ has confirmed that the team of MC’s which included Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz are officially “done.”
Surprises are often a good thing if you’re a Hip-Hop fan. That said, Shady Records CEO, Eminem, announced his plan to bring the Total Slaughter rap league to New York City this summer.
If you were a diehard Slaughterhouse fan cringing at the Joe Budden struggle during this season of Love And Hip-Hop, then you’re being offered a worthy consolation.
It takes an artist of Eminem‘s pedigree to inspire BET to bring Rap City back — even if just for a day.
For the debut of the BET Hip Hop Awards 2013 Tuesday (Oct. 15) night, fans were no doubt checking for the performances and the antics of host Snoop Lion aka Uncle Snoop. However, many fans around the world were tuned in for the “Cyphers,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Mob, Slaughterhouse, Lil’ Kim, and others. Check out […]
Let social networks —particularly Instagram— tell it, Hip-Hop fans have a lot to look forward to. A list of noteworthy MCs were spotted in the studio assumedly crafting new heaters for your listening pleasure.
Leave it up to Joe Budden to flip the script on a situation fellas tend to encounter. Men are sometimes put into a proverbial purgatory by the women they covet — affectionately coined “the friend zone.” However, the scenario is switched on the New Jersey native’s freebie track, “Not Need Yours.”
The controversial original wasn’t enough to keep rappers at bay from Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” beat. Joell Ortiz is the latest MC to drop a quick 16 over Childish Major’s ambient production.
Listen to any recent material Joell Ortiz, and you’ll see that he’s coming for blood in 2013. One of his latest displays of hard body lyrics appears on a cut from Funkmaster Flex’s Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself? mixtape, titled “Roll Deep.”
“Love can’t be lost. I know exactly where I put it at,” laments Joe Budden in the visual for his No Love Lost track “Castles.” The introspective song features the Slaughterhouse MC at his most honest point; reminiscent of that type of moment found on his critically acclaimed Mood Muzik 2 mixtape.
Joe Budden’s No Love Lost release is looking to do tepid, but not terrible, numbers in its first week. The Love & Hip Hop New York star’s latest release is expected to push between 25,000-30,000 units.
Just hours after Joe Budden revealed his second single “Never Broke Again” featuring Wiz Khalifa and French Montana, he antes up with another new track titled “Last Day.” With such a title, it’s fitting that Trippy legend Juicy J would be featured here. Lloyd Banks also contributes a verse, adding to the turn up effects of the single-worthy cut.
Joe Budden follows the familiar yet effective pattern of dropping a new album after a VH1 show.
The Brooklyn anthem is almost as integral a part of Hip-Hop as the posse cut. Our 25 Greatest Brooklyn Anthems of all time list placed a scope on some classic tracks, and here’s another one, courtesy of Joell Ortiz, titled “Brooklyn In The Building.” The east Williamsburg MC channels the prideful arrogance of King’s County on the track with a […]
Combat Jack, Dallas Penn and compnay return with the continuation of last week’s conversation with Hot 97 programming director Ebro Darden. Oldman Ebro plays the background this time, allowing Joe Budden to sit on the hot seat.
While artists like Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, and Nas saw flourishing record sales in 2o12, by releasing damn good albums (the aforementioned made our Wired 25: The Top 25 Albums Of 2012 list), a host of rappers weren’t fortunate enough to enter the same winner’s circle. This year a notable amount of Hip-Hop’s well-marketed and name […]
Joe Budden yearns to tweet just as much as any other technology-crazed human (if not more), and that’s why we rock with him. Never one to hold his tongue, he’s started beefs on Twitter, showed off his girl(s) on Twitter, and routinely drops what he must think are jewels of knowledge for us to decipher.
