Kanye West
I have been listening to Kanye West ever since I noticed his quick verse on Jay-Z's album, The Blueprint 2, on the song, The Bounce. My first impression of Kanye was that he was a a protege to Jay-Z …

Hiding in Hip Hop: On the Down Low in the
You can always tell when someone is a true music lover. When they put the disc of their favorite artist in the cd player, they know exactly what number will give them the song they need for that point …

Hiding in Hip Hop: On the Down Low in the
I am glad Terrance Dean didn't name names. At first I thought that it was a ploy to sell books or for legal reasons. Once reading I realize that if he would have named names then he would have been a …

Kanye West is a genius. Not only does he flow with a barbed wit, he is able to take a variety of forms to add to his hip-hop, rap base.      His latest C.D. `Graduation' picks …

It's hard to review Kanye West. For me, his releases and music aren't so much about him but what he does with samples and how he integrates them into his beats and produces new songs. Really, none of …

Stunts Blunts & Hip Hop
I had this on my wish list for a while but never found a decent place to buy it from. I went to a CD outlet one day and dug in one of the Hip Hop crates and found this sitting there all alone. I thought …

Hip Hop Is Dead
What Nas is saying is no secret but at the same time nobody but Nas has the heart to step up and say it because Hip Hop should have had its funeral a while ago. I'm a young cat but came up on Nasir Jones …

Step Up (Widescreen Edition) (2006)
I thought this film was decent. I will agree with some of the complaints I've seen about the acting in the movie. The script is filled with every cliché under the sun, and just when you thought that something …

Mark Ferem is onto a strong concept. For several years he has been photographing and writing about the graffiti found in restrooms across America, Mexico, and Canada, finding that these tiny repositories …
It's No Secret: From Nas to Jay-Z, from Seduction
In what was touted as a hip-hop tell all, Carmen Bryan pens what amounts to her autobiography is this slow-moving saga. With her sole claim to fame being the mother of Nas's child, Carmen tells of growing …

Lord Willin
I got Lord Willin for my birthday when it came out a few years ago and to tell you the truth I expected a mediocre album at best. I figured that the singles were a little too hot for the rest of the album …

Ciara's no vocal giant, but I'm sure that was evident from the first single. Her range is limited, but her vocals are solid on a lot of the tracks. Surprisingly, "Goodies" is where Ciara's vocals are …

I've been listening to this album on and off for the past week and a half and in my opinion, this album is really good. I've always admired Outkast's originality: their music never sounds like anything …

When this album first came out it was constantly on rotation on my CD player. Eve just simply commands respect on this album. Tracks like "Let This Go," "Satisfaction" and "Neck Bones" let you know she …
