“Some would say hip-hop originated within a marginalized subculture in the South Bronx amongst black and latino youth during the 1970s in New York City. Look at what you have here: A black female artist and Latino male artist.”

There hasn’t been more a suitable MC to represent Memphis post-Three 6 Mafia than Yo Gotti. Even before releasing his major label debut Live From The Kitchenlast year, Mr. Mario Mims earned the respect of hip-hop contemporaries, including Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Wale and Nicki Minaj. Going from drug dealing to selling out shows domestically, Yo Gotti took his experiences from the street and applied them to music–both artistically and commercially. He hopes to continue to grow on both ends of the spectrum when he releases I Am November 19th. The first joint venture between his CMG imprint and Epic records, Yo Gotti hopes to transition smoothly from one of hip-hop’s rising stars to label owner.

"Philomena is an intricate film of self-discovery, where demons can be tackled in part through the help of unconventional people. A clever film that flawlessly controls all moods, Frears’ direction shines along with Coogan and Dench’s “like fine wine” acting chops." Read my first film review for...

New Orleans native Dee-1 has come a long way from making the decision to drop his full time position as a school teacher to becoming one of hip-hop’s most positive and lyrically effective MCs. With each project released, Mr. David Augustine, Jr. continues to evolve artistically at an effortless pace. The notion continues with this fall as he prepares to drop his latest project, Psalms of David Vol. 2. His follow-up to Psalms of David Vol.1, hitting the net earlier this year, features the most righteous music video one will see this year in “Walking Revolution.” Featuring Dee-1 feeding the homeless citizens of New Orleans, the MC walks his talk.

“I don’t consider myself a Christian rapper; I consider myself a Christian that raps about what he knows.”

Today’s new crop of emcees live in a less contained environment artistically thanks to this generation’s marriage to any and everything connected. That means that the sonic barrier between local and outside sounds are blurred to create new forms of expression on a constant basis. Up-and-coming spitter Raven Sorvino exemplifies the notion perfectly. Spending her childhood between Houston and Los Angeles due to her parents being separated, Raven describes herself as embracing both southern and west coast mentalities in every way possible. “Being in the south gave me a politeness about me, and my dad was the type of person that didn’t take any stuff,” Raven explained.  “Being with my mom in LA, she was such a queen; everything was so glamourous and elegant.  Take both of those two, that’s really who Ravin Sorvino is.”

Since the early days of hip-hop, one of the genre’s biggest criticisms is its musical validity. Is sampling just lazy copying? Does Fruityloops usage make one any less of a musician? Or should listeners just rely on a song’s enjoyability? This is what makes Terrace...
