The Rap Up returns with new ones from Maxo Kream, Riff Raff, and some bad rap rock combos.
Torii MacAdams is like all races combined in one man like the ’98 summer jam A decade is a long time to plan for. Even Joseph Stalin, a dictator, only had the temerity to plan in five year increments. The initial plan led to the starvation of millions. The baby-faced DJ Mustard’s ostensible plot for […]
Peter Holslin always liked Raphael the best “Ninja Rap” is the best song Vanilla Ice ever wrote. I’m not just saying that because I used to be a five-year-old boy who loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. I know the original 1990 film is way better. But you can’t mess […]
Jimmy Ness is The Future Since Datpiff was founded in 2005, mixtapes have evolved from compilations traded on street corners to a career necessity for any rapper without Jay-Z’s Rolodex. Datpiff were among the first to pioneer digital mixtapes and took some of the distribution power from labels. This helped artists to freely share music […]
When your album cover features two half-naked Asian girls in various states of duress and vomiting, you might imagine that a lot will get glossed over. Bronson plays the Bam Bam Bigelow pro wrestler role well. He understands what it takes to become a star in rap circa 2013. You need a larger than life […]
Deen’s original draft was written in psychedelic fonts. So the long-awaited sequel to How Fly is finally here.

If I have to spell out what these two are rapping about in this space […]
Deen’s from Houston, you know how he’s coming. I’m fairly certain that February 3rd’s, New Jet City, is yet another Currensy freebie (intended to commemorate N’awlins hosting the Super Bowl), so I’m left wondering how and why the man decided to let this one go for free. Look at the star power on this shit! […]

Slava P’s favorite Dalmation is Pongo. Intro Ambient set-up to an album whose cover you have to replace. Paperbond Fame means you never need to admit what your song titles really mean.
Max Bell roundly rejected prior restraint. You never have to ask Devin the Dude if he’s trying to smoke. The only reason you ask is so you can hear him croon “Ooo yeah” like he suddenly abandoned rap and started singing the stoner blues. You never have to question whether the man can drop a […]
Max Bell was conceived to Juvenile Hell. “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone […]
