On Monday December 8, 2014 Detroit’s newcomer Dej Loaf, best known for her smash hit “Try Me” hit the stage at SOB’s in nYC with Boldy James, Kiyanne, and Spank Jus Bizness. iHipHop was on hand to document the event.

For this installment of iHipHop’s Instagram Babe of the Week we have Niykee Heaton, the South African-born, Illinois-raised singer/songwriter who hit it big when she did an acoustic cover of Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” which has since garnered well over two million views. In turn Niykee caught the attention of record labels and inked a deal with All Def Digital and Capitol Records. But Niykee is perhaps best known for her much lurked Instagram account, which has over 880k followers. And with a quick glance at her account it isn’t a shocker why her good looks overshadow her musicial abilities. Niykee Heaton is notorious for setting out #ThirstTraps and it isn’t difficult seeing as how she is one of the finest babes out. In the slideshow we’ve complied a healthy collection of Niykee’s best Instagram pics. Get at it after the jump.

Last Thursday we introduced a new weekly segment here at iHipHop in which we post 25 old school hip-hop photos as part of the internet phenomena known as Throwback Thursday. And for our second installment of #ThrowbackThursday we again have scoured the deepest, darkest depths of the ‘net to bring you more vintage rap photos you’ve probably never seen before. This week we’ve got some goodies, for sure. Mark Wahlberg playing ball with Will Smith, Wesley Snipes, OutKast, Mya, and L.A. Reid circa 1996, Bun B and Pimp C in high school, and Prodigy of Mobb Deep like you’ve never seen him! Peep the photos after the jump. Enjoy!
Throwback Thursday. Everyone and their mother partakes in the weekly internet phenomena that is sweeping the Western world, in which one shares old school images on various popular social networking sites (most notably Instagram). And perhaps the genre of music to receive the most love via this tradition is hip-hop, as many (including the artists themselves) share vintage snaps of various rap acts over the decades. Some even dating back to its infancy. So, we here at iHipHop, being the obsessive rap fans that we are, have decided we would partake in this lore as well and share 25 old school hip-hop photos each and every Thursday. This week we’ve got some goodies, including photos of a young Kanye West, Nas & Jay Z before the beef, and even Allen Iverson chillin’ with some notable rappers of the 2000s. Check them all out after the jump! Enjoy.

With MMLP2’s release to an adoring public, even as it earned uneven marks, Eminem’s perceived maturity has emerged as a red herring in terms of ways to evaluate this clumsily-conceived sequel. Like many of Hollywood’s clunkers, it is necessarily weighed against and down by the success of the first.
