By now I'm sure we're all familiar with Rick Ross' now notorious date rape lyric on Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." and the backlash that soon followed. Unfortunately for us, it seems that we've now entered a new level of f**kery thanks to the number of rappers who have come to Ross' defense. See more...
I'm not apologizing for watching Gunplay's new "Bet That" video. I'm now a straight up Gunplay fan, and I'm not afraid to say it. Plus this one stripped is holding a drink between her cheeks, so we've got that going for us. See more...

It's been quite a few months since Windy City rhymer Rockie Fresh signed to Maybach Music Group, but earlier today fans were finally treated to the rapper's first full project on MMG.See more...

Rockie's rhymes are solid here, no hate, but this beat? For some reason this shit has been stuck in my head all day. It's that Southern slow trap sound with some experimental layers. See more...
In the time since "C & C" Gunplay's become hip-hop's crazy, alcoholic uncle. Not a week goes by without an incident, but you just shrug your shoulders and say, "That's just Gunplay, what are you gonna do?"See more...
Ah, the "Intro" track, a track used by rappers since time-immemorial to showcase the kind of lyrical complexity they had to submerge on the rest of the album. So its no surprise that Meek Mill uses the "Intro" of his upcoming "Dreams & Nightmares" to bring out his mic skills...See more...

Grabbing Jay-Z and Dr. Dre was a pretty fucking big deal. Grabbing Wale and Drake, not a particularly big deal. But grabbing nearly four minutes from Andre 3K is a really, really big fucking deal. I'm not going to front, even with Ross' elite status I didn't see anything like "Sixteen" coming. Listen...See more...

On the strength of the names alone, Rick Ross, Dr. Dre and Jay-Z coming together for "3 Kings" has to be considered the biggest track of the year so far. You've got to hand it to the man, much like his man titties, Rick Ross goes big. But enough prologue, let's get right down to it....
In many ways if Gunplay manages to gain even a measure of solo success that will be Ross' biggest victory yet. Just a year ago he was a punchline, one of those guys in the eminently failed Triple C's group. And then he popped up on Kendrick's "Cartoons & Cereal" and some folks thought "maybe this dude has something." See more...See more...

Rick Ross is part of a small group of rappers who can change someone's life overnight, and Chicago's Rockie Fresh is the latest to experience the golden touch from MMG. I'm not going to lie, I really don't know Rockie very well. He's popped up here or there on my radar, but I'm certainly not familiar enough with the man to say whether this is a good, questionable or bad signing for the Teflon Don. See more...
