Inspired by Tyler, The Creator’s criticism of the ShadyXV album being “ass,” Crooked I drops this freestyle in response.
Before Eminem became the megastar he is today, Slim Shady was just another rapper trying to make a name for himself. Check out this freestyle he kicked on the radio for Baruch College in Manhattan alongside another emcee named A.L. from 1997.
Despite the artwork, Bumpy Knuckles and DJ Wayne Ski aren’t out here making booty music. It’s still hard as nails hip hop here.
Big Noyd, Large Professor and Kool G Rap’s collaborative effort from the Coalmine Records’ Unearthed Compilation gets a Cookin’ Soul makeover.

The word legendary goes hand in hand with the word iconic, which perfectly describes the one record label that defines hip-hop…Def Jam.
For 30 years, the brand that Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons built has consistently pumped out quality music and groundbreaking artists. From the days of LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys and Public Enemy to Jeezy, Jay-Z and Nas, the Def Jam logo has spun hits with force and volume to the masses.
For the month of November, Def Jam and RESPECT Magazine bring to you the world’s best DJs to take you through the history of this storied record label. 30 DJs. 30 Mixes. 30 Days. With hot new tracks to oldie but goodies to exclusive songs rarely heard, our All-Star team of DJs got you covered.
Each DJ brings a different flair to the mixes you’ll end up keeping on repeat long after November is done. So click the links above and enjoy the power of Def Jam 30. – Datwon Thomas Editor in Chief of Respect Magazine
The Mash Out Posse cut loose the original version of this song off of their Street Certified EP that features Preemo on the cuts and DJ Skizz handling the beat.
Yet another Ghostface and AZ collaboration that you can snap your neck to. 36 Seasons is shaping up to be one hell of an album.
Sixty-six tracks of classics and rarities from the Shady/Aftermath camp. 66! Everyone from 50 Cent and the G-Unit to Yelawolf and D12 are on this project. A nice accompanying piece to the Shady XV project for your listening pleasure.
SLAUGHTERHOUSE & YELAWOLF FEAT. EMINEM – PSYCHOPATH KILLER (PROD. BY JUST BLAZE, THE MAVEN BOYS & BOI-1DA)
An insane lineup with equally insane production for a song titled “Psychopath Killer?” Yeah, we’ll take it.
ShadyXV drops 11/24.
