Status Ain’t Hood: The Developing Drake/Meek Mill Soap Opera

Drake is rap’s biggest star and probably its most compelling figure, too. He’s effectively remade the whole idea of the rap star, turning the center of the genre away from hungry street-rap and toward this sonically manicured, stylistically cosmopolitan sound that currently dominates. He’s someone who’s constantly thinking about his own persona and about the… More »

Overdoz. – “Fuck Yo’ DJ” (Feat. A$AP Ferg) Video

The last time OverDoz. put out a mixtape was back in 2013, and even then the L.A.-based rap collective said those songs were several years old. So hearing something new from the four members — Kent, Cream, P, Joon — is heartening. What’s even better? The crew are releasing a proper album, 2008, via RCA… More »

A$AP Ferg – “Swipe Life”

A$AP Ferg has the rare gift of being able to make a song about spending too much money and make it sound like an unhinged paranoiac rant. That’s the case with “Swipe Life,” Ferg’s new contribution to DJ SpinKing’s The Connect mixtape, which also features people like Jeremih, Fetty Wap, and Ty Dolla $ign. Like… More »

Meek Mill – “B Boy” (Feat. Big Sean & A$AP Ferg) Video

After coming home from his prison term, Meek Mill went fully back into active mode with a couple of furious freestyles a couple of weeks ago. The probation-violation bid he did last year messed up the plans for his Dreams Worth More Than Money, but it looks like those album plans are back on. Meek’… More »

Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs & A$AP Ferg – “Old English” Video

Young Thug is a rapper whose slurring, whiny, nonsensical delivery and Ziggy Stardust femininity flies in the face of rugged rap orthodoxy. Freddie Gibbs is a hard-nosed, no-bullshit rapper who embodies that orthodoxy. So hearing them on the same track is quite a trip. “Old English,” from the forthcoming Mass Appeal Compilation, Vol. 1, also… More »

Wale continues his career-long Seinfeld fixation with his new A-Trak collaboration Festivus, released today in observance of the no-longer-fictional holiday.

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2014

In 2014, rap’s biggest names more or less sat the year out. Kanye West never got around to releasing that populist masterwork he’s been promising. Drake threw a bunch of great songs up on Soundcloud rather than compiling those songs into an LP. Jay Z went on tour with his wife but gave us no… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: A$AP Ferg Ferg Forever

A$AP Ferg is kind of a dork. Plenty of evidence supports this claim, but none of it is more persuasive than “Bonnoroo,” the track where Ferg enthuses about the weekend he just spent at a festival while also hilariously misspelling that festival’s name. On “Bonnoroo,” Ferg rhymes “Diplo” with “they taking off they shit slow,”… More »

Yesterday, we heard “Ice,” the new conspicuous-consumption anthem from Three 6 Mafia veteran Juicy J. It has a beat from Mike Will Made-It and verses from Future and A$AP Ferg, and it’s kind of a banger. Now, it’s got a video, too. In the clip, we see all three rappers, along with Mike Will, shrouded… More »

Juicy J – “Ice” (Feat. Future & A$AP Ferg)

The improbably commercial resurgence of veteran Memphis drunk-rap overlord Juicy J is one of the great feel-good stories in the last few years of rap music. And Juicy doesn’t look like he’s slowing down anytime soon. Juicy’s got a new album called Pure THC: The Hustle Continues, and first single “Low,” with Nicki Minaj and… More »

Elle Varner – “Don’t Wanna Dance” (Feat. A$AP Ferg) Video

Earlier this summer, the old-school R&B siren Elle Varner released the A$AP Ferg-assisted “Don’t Wanna Dance,” a lovely party song about not wanting to be at a party. The track’s new video tells the story of a drunk couple-fight at a house party, and if you haven’t been there, than I would argue that you… More »
