A$AP Rocky, Bun B and Vic Mensa were a few of those that stopped through RapFix Live today with Sway but stayed behind after the interview to drop a quick freestyle. Vic goes in so hard that Sway had to cut in, Rocky went in on a topic pulled from thin air, then Bun B brought it home like only a vet could. Oakland MC Glam.I.Rock came in to show that she could hold her own before round two began. Watch some good ol’ hip-hop fun above.– Keith Reid-ClevelandRead More
Twenty years ago today, the Wu-Tang Clan released their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers. The hip-hop community’s been buzzing with nostalgia and here’s a video of artists like Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean and many more talking about how Wu-Tang influenced them. –Keith Reid-ClevelandRead More
TDE’s latest signee, Isaiah Rashad, announced that he’ll be dropping his debut mixtape, Cilvia, late this December. The RevoltTV video is brief, but all that’s needed to let fans know what’s coming next. It looks like we’re finally going to get a full project from the Chattanooga-emcee.
Also, Rashad was far from nervous when he stopped by Sway in the Morning with a handful of gummy bears. During the interview he answered questions from callers and spoke on how he’s dealing with the new spotlight.–Keith Reid-ClevelandRead More
On the eve of the official release for Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2, Complex Magazine released two interactive digital covers. Two interviews picking the “Rap God’s” brain on albums past and present. While Em is bringing us back to basics with his latest offering, he is crafting personal lyrics that aren’t a complete reveal.
“Yeah, I don’t know. A lot of my career I put a lot of my life out there. It was personal shit I would put out there and didn’t really give a fuck,” Eminem said. “Sometimes I think back and I’m like, “Damn, was I doing the right thing? How much of myself do I wanna put out there?’”
Eminem approached this album with a different concept in comparison to Recovery and the first MMLP. Aside from letting fans into the darkness of recovering from drug addiction and his personal relationships, Em plans to give fans a true hip-hop album.
“This isn’t Recovery, where I was coming off some personal tragedies. I’m not coming off of a drug overdose. It’s more about going back to the basics of hip-hop and some fundamentals in that sense.”
Eminem and Rihanna definitely have a basic musical formula that works. With their latest collaborative track, the pair face their inner demons and the negative effects of fame in “Monster.” After listening to the beat initially, Em revealed to MTV’s Sway that he already had a track with Rih Rih’s voice in mind.
“As soon as I got the beat I just heard her on it,” Em said. “I wanted to make sure that I had it finished first to be able to present to her, but once I had the rhymes done, I sent it to her.” (more…)Read More
Sway catches up with Mac Miller on MTV RapFix Live yesterday as the two speak about, what else, Blue Slide Park making Hip Hop history. According to Mac, the feat hasn’t set in yet because of the moving he’s been doing. For those living under a rock, Miller is the first independent artist to reach the top of the Billboard charts since Tha Dogg Pound in 1995 during the glory days of Death Row Records.
The dopest part of the entire clip? Even though he failed to reach 50K pre-orders with the album, he is still going to donate $50K to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Stand up stuff, Mac.Read More
If you were one of those people holding your breath until Nas released Lost Tapes 2, stop. You’re only going to inflict unwarranted pain upon yourself. Queensbridge’s own sat down with the legendary Sway and opened up about the album’s status.
Pretty much, it’s not going to come out, at least not now. Credit the reason being the suits at Def Jam. Yet another project put on the (wrong) shelf because of industry politics. If Nas really wanted to, he could just drop it as a street album. That way he could release it the way he wants to thus satisfying that sector of the public who cannot get enough of Nasir’s music. Then, he could feed off the buzz it will almost undoubtedly and just tour off that.
But that won’t happen. So, like you, I will not even hold my breath.Read More
There are about 14 parts to this in total, so I’ll save the write up. Here is the entire sit down Weezy had with Sway (we showed a snippet the other day of him talking about Jay-Z’s line in “H.A.M.”). The two discuss his upcoming tour, Tha Carter IV, his collaboration with Drake, the first day out of prison, his fan mail behind bars and much, much more. Hit the jump for the other 13 segments.Read More
Kanye and Hov’s “H.A.M.” may have not made the impact it intended too, but one line in particular seems to be all anyone remembers from the song. Jay has a line which may be taken as a diss towards the Cash Money fam (you’ll see it once you click play), probably stemming from when Birdman said Wayne was better than him because they bring in the most money.
No hard feelings from Wayne though. In a sitdown with Sway, he actually seemed to embrace the line and plan to use it to his advantage.Read More
