Over the course of the last decade and a half or so, hip hop music and video games have become curiously aligned. One of the most interesting things about this development is that companies don’t always choose popular artists music to feature in their games, they often choose the music of smaller ar...

I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this right now. The hip hop world has just lost another amazing young voice in Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle. On March 31st, Hussle was shot outside of his Marathon Clothing store, the store he created to give back to his community. He was later prono...

If you are at all familiar with hip hop label Top Dawg Entertainment, you’re most likely aware that they have one of the most coveted artist rosters out there.

He announced Rap Or Go To The League in February of 2018 and released a few tracks here and there, but was otherwise uncharacteristically quiet aside from features on other artists' songs. Usually when an artist is that quiet, it means that they...
