You know what time it is, folks. The Hip-Hop Dojo is back for its fifth installment. Typically, we try to separate the playlist based on certain themes or sounds, but this week's crop is our largest and most unique ever, making it tough to group everything together, but we tried our best. There is one pervasive idea that seems to shine throughout a majority of this playlist though, which is "keeping it real." This week's edition is a revival of sorts, featuring plenty of industry veterans, and a few names you probably haven't heard in quite awhile. We [...]

If there's anyone that deserves to nuke the XXL building, that would be X.V. I've been following the Wichita, Kansas artist since the 40 days, 40 nights days series. Back when producer SEVEN was the Robin to his Batman. Years have flown by, and still the much talked about "Kid With A Green Backpack" album has yet to see the light of day. Will this be the year? It's no telling. Even though he's been quiet, Vizzy released something new for compadre The Awesome Sound's birthday. It's not lively celebration music, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Music without substance typically ends up at the top of the charts, played out on radio stations, and heralded by critics, (i.e. Future's auto-tuned hooks on every radio hit), but [...]

Is it really that time of year again? I have no idea where 2012 went; it seems like it was just January a few short months ago. In this seemingly short year, there has been a slew of superb releases - especially in the Hip-Hop realm.

If you feel the need to voice your opinion, leave a comment [...]

We've been watching XV for awhile and while his age indicates veteran, I think we all know that the heat XV has been giving us is only a premonition of what's to come. After coming down to SXSW earlier this year to capitalize on his success with Zero Heroes XVgraced us with a few dope singles and eventually his Popular Culture project that really took off.
