Max Bellwas once traded for Pau Gasol. Some pale and anemic soul slumped behind a computer will soon devise an algorithm compiling a list of all the lists on the Internet. Said meta-list will be outdated the minute it goes up; that is unless there’s some automatic refresh built-in. Until that ominous day the Mayans […]
Deen’s #11, 12, 13, 14 & 15 is Dylan. I imagine that if you read this site or anything even remotely connected to the rap internets on a regular basis you’re aware of the fact that MTV dropped their 8th annual “Hottest” “MCs” in the game list. Obviously, folks have had an issue with this […]

In response to the Big Sean-strangled deliberations of the MTV cabal, a separate Illuminati formed to create their own “Top 10 Rappers in the Game.” Note the semantic difference.

20. Future – Pluto [Epic] Pluto is the rare 21st Century Atlanta Rap album that is an album in the classic sense of the word. It’s an experience, an etched aesthetic that demands end to end listens, and you may find yourself scrolling back to Big Rube immediately upon completion. While Drake, Frank Ocean and […]
Fuck Hotness. It’s a stupid arbitrary idea and worse adjective—a word best left to Paris Hilton, Al Roker, and Mims.
