Fresh off a wack verse on Big Sean's "Switch Up", it's good to hear Common get back on his superb storytelling tip. "Congratulations" joins the immortal "Int'l Player's Anthm" as the only "songs about marriage from a guy's point of view" in hip-hop history.See more...

"Switch Up" doesn't really teach us anything we didn't already know. Sean has a great ear for beats, he can make some catchy tracks, and he loves rapping about working and then relaxing.See more...
I'm gonna go ahead and say that Common's "Used to Love H.E.R." is the most copied concept in the hip-hop history. I can't even begin to name all the tracks I've heard that follow the blueprint he laid down almost twenty years ago.See more...

Even if Game wasn't able to clear that Kanye West sample for "Rollin'" at least he was able to secure Ye for "Jesus Piece," the title track on his upcoming album and one of the project's most anticipated songs. See more...

Rick Ross, Miguel, Curren$y, and Pusha T...No, this isn't the line-up for the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, instead it's the list of artists featured on just one of a handful of records DJ Drama released this week.See more...

Why is it that Funkmaster Flex is unarguably the most annoying personality in radio, yet he still managed to somehow get Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, CyHi The Prynce, and Common to drop dope freestyles on his show? See more...

I think it's telling that in over 100 comments on our official Best Rapper of All-Time debate, not a single person (including me) brought up Common. Not even a single, "You know who should at least be mentioned here? Common." See more...
At this point it's damn near impossible to figure out who is and isn't in Cocaine '80s, and that's probably the way they like it. As far as I can figure out, the simplest version goes like this: No I.D. makes new music with who ever happens to be around the studio. Listen and download...See more...
Well then. Looks like maybe this whole Cocaine '80s thing might be more than just Common, James Fauntleroy, No I.D. and Makeba Riddick releasing random tracks when they feel like it. Do you really drop a new Nas track just for the fucks of it? Listen and download...See more...
Boom, just like that we've been hit with three new tracks over as many days from Cocaine '80s: "Queen to Be", "This Can't Be a Crime" and "Take My Keys". While "Queen to Be" will likely grab most of RefinedHype Nation's attention first, all three cuts are some seriously laid back hip-hop-ish goodness.See more...
