Public Enemy, Ice Cube, and BDP kick off the second half of our list of the 100 greatest rap albums of all time.
A veritable coruncopia of white rappers shows up in this installment of the greatest rap albums of all time. Plus-The Roots, OutKast and more!
ATL’s own Killer Mike is back with “R.A.P. Music”, the emcee’s full-length collaboration with El-P. Check out our review!
Run-DMC is arguably the most influential hip-hop group of all time, but are they the best? Check out our latest list and see where Darryl, Jay and Joe landed.
This collaboration between genre-hopping anime band Gorillaz and fellow spaced-out geniuses Andre 3000 (better known as the guy from Outkast wearing all that purple) and James Murphy (better known as now-defunct LCD Soundsystem’s main maestro and treasurer of the Justin Vernon Foundation For Frontmen Who Do NOT Share A Name With Their Band) has been gabbed about for several weeks now. No, this isn’t indicative of a full-scale album-length collaboration–although if it were, I’d stop waking up in the middle [...]
We’ve finally hit the jackpot. The 10 best albums of the ’00s, as voted by the Popblerd staff. Amy Winehouse made the list, who else is here?
Yep, they’re a cartoon band. Yep, they made our list of the best albums of the ’00s. See who else made the cut.
T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli had #1 hits, won Grammys…and finish on our list of the Best Albums of the Nineties, which continues with #60-#51.
Missy Elliott works it, Isaac Brock and Modest Mouse try on funny mustaches, and Fiddy parties like it’s yo’ berf day (AKA #20-#11) here . 10. Here it Goes Again | OK Go (2006) It all started with some treadmills. Add in a synchronized choreography routine (not very easy to do on treadmills, mind you) and a C-list power-pop band turns into those guys! Do you think the members of OK Go are pissed because they’ve turned into something of a [...]
Much as I enjoy his music (most of the time, anyway), Lenny had always struck me as sort of self-important and humorless. Well, after twenty-something years of rock stardom, Lenny tries his hand at comedy in the video for “Stand”, the first official single from his upcoming project, Black & White America. Must have been his well-received turn in “Precious” that got him bit by the acting bug. There appears to be some serious “Let’s Make a Deal” type shenanigans [...]
Welcome to yet another episode of Blerd Radio! In this episode, your hosts Mike & Jesse pay tribute to a cultural phenomenon by acknowledging the thirtieth (!) anniversary of MTV. Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny that the advent of Music Television changed the industry as well as pop culture. Over the course of this episode, we discuss our favorite classic videos, shout out some iconic VJs, and bemoan the constant “16 & Pregnant” marathon the [...]
Kool G. Rap and Nas finished 10 and 9. Who’s next up on the list? 8. Andre 3000 Representing: Atlanta It took a long time before I was able to appreciate OutKast. Not to say I was a purist, but…well, I was a purist. No one from outside New York was as good as artists from New York. Shit, prior to OutKast, rap from the SouthEast was booty music a la Luke. To this day, I don’t think Southernplayalisticadillacmusic is [...]
