   According to his press release, one of Agallah’s first claims to fame came when he followed the infamous Supernatural vs. Craig G battle in ’96.  Now that’s big.  For those who don’t know, the “Freeestyle: The Art of Rhyme” DVD released last year shows footage of this historic moment in freestyle history. Since then, the [cont.]

One of the most consistent artists in hip-hop, Jurassic 5 returns with its latest effort, “Feedback”.  I chat with the DJ Nu-Mark about the new album, their collaboration with the Mighty Mos Def, and the situation with Cut Chemist.  Plus the debut of the “One Line Random Eleven”, eleven questions asked that you didn’t know [cont.]

   Boot Camp Clik has always been a truly underground super group.  They’ve garnered a cult following with their uncompromising, gritty-as-gravel sound since the mid-90s, and a decade later they’re still sticking to their guns.  As hip-hop rapidly changes its flavor of choice from year-to-year, BCC keeps it true with that “gutter-gully-gangsta” music. The group’s [cont.]

    Bad Bay South’s latest project, Yung Joc, has garnered a decent amount of buzz the past few months following the slightly surprising emergence of another Diddy South byproduct, Boyz N Da Hood (more specifically Young Jeezy).  But in an oversaturated Southern movement, it’s hard to see anything that really sets him apart from the [cont.]

    Cam’ron has always been an artist that fascinated this writer, because he’s a perennial “should’ve been”.  He’s the rapper equivalent of L.A. Clippers swingman Corey Maggette.  Here’s a guy that, on paper, has all the tools to be great: played under a great coach in a great system, has size and quickness, he can take you off [cont.]

     Boston has always been Robin to NY’s Batman.  We usually don’t give this a second thought, but isn’t it strange that one of America’s premiere cities is almost never looked at as such?  Within the context of hip-hop, how has there not been a big-name rapper reppin Beantown at this point?  Whenever recently fired [cont.]

   “Now you can call it positive / you can call it backpack / you can call it street shit / you can call it nerd rap / but no matter what you call it / y’all the fact is we got the phat shit”    “Feeding Einstein” is one of those albums that take [cont.]

    Smif-N-Wessun is one of the most beloved underground acts of the past decade. “Dah Shinin’” is still on heavy rotation in this listener’s stereo, as it is for many of you readers. Their most recent “Reloaded” was more than worthy, but it’s only natural that the duo of Tek and Steele would try their hand with solo [cont.]

     I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a card-carrying member of the Dipset fan club.  Nothing personal, but in my passing spins of their catalog, I just don’t see much difference between them and any other rappers spittin’ the same content.  There are more of these cliques than you can count on [cont.]

          The dreaded “P” word.  It haunts us all, but some more than others.  Potential.  It’s meant to be a compliment, but sometimes it ends up being more curse than gift.  Towards the end of Michael Jordan’s career, sportswriters across the country couldn’t wait to proclaim the “next MJ”.  Remember the list of next-in-lines?  [cont.]
