    Lupe Fiasco Released His Classic 10 Years Ago Today

    They say time flies by too fast and I couldn’t agree with that sentiment more, especially when you think about Lupe Fiasco dropping his classic debut, Food and Liquor album ten years ago today. Before he dropped the Food and Liquor album, he killed the track Touch the Sky off of the debut album from Kanye West back in 2004. Some people only remembered Lupe Fiasco on the track with Kanye before his album dropped, but he dropped the first installment of the Fahrenheit 1/15 mixtapes back in 2005 and released the other two in 2006. The Food and Liquor album was well-received by all the critics were calling him…

    Kanye West Late Registration Turns 15 Years Old Today

    The Late Registration from Kanye West turns 15-years-old today. Late Registration is the follow-up to his debut album, College Dropout he released a year prior. With College Dropout being such a great album, expectations were high for this one. Late Registration went on to sell over 3 million copies off the strength of 5 singles. Diamonds from Sierra Leone was the first one and it was a dope track. Diamond from Sierra Leone went on to go platinum after its release. The track was so good that Jay-Z jumped on the remix and it also appeared on the album. Diamonds from Sierra Leone won the Grammy Award for Best Rap…

    Very Best of Rick Ross for Mixtape Friday

    Rick Ross have just released his 9th album, Port of Miami 2. With Rick Ross, you either love him or you hate him. Seeing that I’ve been known to venture on various hip hop sites, that’s pretty much how people view him. The ones that like him will point out how he’s putting out good albums consistently, plus his ear for beats. The ones that don’t hold him in high regard is usually because he lied about being a correction officer. For me, none of that matters and I’m always looking forward to his latest music. For my Mixtape Friday, we’re putting out the Very Best of Rick Ross. If…

    Daddy’s Hangout Presents Mixtape Friday Volume 25

    Once again, it’s time for another Mixtape Friday. We started the week off with another of my Joints set. This was Joints 41 and there’s about 12 tracks off that project. Kendrick Lamar’s New West Volume 2 was next. Honestly, we don’t know if it’s an actual project or not. Mixtape Friday Volume 24 followed that and Nas’s Illmatic came afterwards. The debut album from T.I., I’m Serious was the next album. Fly Shit from Playa Fly came up next. The final album of the week believe it or not was Lil Bow Wow. Once again, this proves I’ll listen to everything as Bow Wow got four tracks on here.…

    10 Years Ago Today Bun B Released His II Trill Album

    If you’re a follower of this site, you know I’m a huge UGK fan. You may have peeped my UGK Greatest Hits either here or online that I made a few years ago. In 2005, Bun B released his first solo album while Pimp C was locked up called Trill. While many didn’t know how Bun B would fare without Pimp C, the real fans knew that Bun could spit with the best of them. Unfortunately, Pimp C passed away in December of 2007 and Bun B already had some tracks to work with. On May 20th, he dropped the II Trill album with That’s Gangsta featured Sean Kingston as…

    Kendrick Lamar- You Ain’t Gotta Lie (Momma Said)

    I know that some of the younger hip hop heads didn’t receive To Pimp a Butterfly album by Kendrick Lamar with open arms. Some of the issues I have found in this generation is that they don’t listen to all kinds of hip hop. They will bump Future, Waka Flocka, Gucci Mane, Drake or Meek Mill, but they don’t like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole or Lupe Fiasco. I remember when I was around 11 or 12 years old and I was listening to bass music and 2 Live Crew, but was also listening to Big Daddy Kane, Eric B & Rakim, Slick Rick, NWA and Kid-n-Play. With that said, my…
