20 best vids 2013 420px

The music video has taken on a new role and purpose in the hip-hop zeitgeist.

You don’t need an accomplished director, a six-figure budget, or tropical backdrop to create an acclaimed rap video these days. That heightened accessibility for artists has given us a closer, more authentic look into their cities and their natural environments. (more…)

60 best songs 2013

The songs listed here, in no particular order, represent the look and feel of hip-hop in 2013. A song hopes to capture a moment, in the same way that an album, more broadly, hopes to capture an experience. Some of the more complex emotions about luxury, love, loss, defiance, honesty, lust, ingenuity, politics and compassion sprouted from this year’s crop of rap moments. (more…)

Video: Beyoncé – “Mine” feat. Drake

Drake on a joint that he mentioned during his CRWN interview with Elliott Wilson. This Bey business is sounding a LOT like the hip hop album of the year. And that just screws everyone’s list.

Beyoncé Releases New Self-Titled Album

rsz_beyonce-cover-500x500-1

Call it the female version of what The Black Album was originally intended to be. Seemingly out of nowhere, Beyoncé releases a brand new, self-titled 14-track LP, complete with features from Drake, Jay Z, and Frank Ocean and music videos for each song. No promotion, no singles, just music. Tracklisting after the jump. (more…)

New Music: Timbaland – “Know Bout Me” feat. Drake & Jay Z

Drake and his pops hit the streets of Memphis in the official ten-minute visual for “Worst Behavior.” Cameos include Juicy J, Project Pat and whatever deranged individual got paid to wear that creepy OVO owl costume.

Video: Schoolboy Q Says Kendrick’s BET Cypher Verse Was Rehearsed Long Before

Q says a lot of vague things about Kendrick not going at Drake in the verse, and then starts nervously fidgeting when asked to elaborate. That verse was going at Drake but…it must stink to have to talk about K. Dot in every interview for his album. The Control Effect, everyone!

Drizzy spills the beans on the Hit-Boy-produced “Trophies,” which he said he had initially written two different hooks for. Drake says he will finish the song and release it soon, along with the “Wu-Tang Forever (Remix)” and a track with YG.
