Conscious rap is a sub-genre of hip-hop that focuses on creating awareness and imparting knowledge. For the most part, is has been a type of rap associated with lesser known artists. Now, with the rise of newcomers Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole, conscious rap is making it's way into the foreground. These guys realize how powerful their music is and are using it create important conversation. 


Above, you'll find J.Cole's interview with Angie Martinez where he's talks about his style of rap and the conversation he's trying to create. Very insightful and thought provoking interview. Cool to see that he understands how much of an impact he can make. 


Lastly, congrats to the big homie Cole for selling more than 370,000 copies of his album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, in it's first week and debuting at #1!

Shady original

Some of y'all might know about the upcoming SHADY XV compilation, which is set to be released on 11/24/14.  Anyways, the record will have a version of the classic Eminem track “Lose Yourself."  This version is dope because is has never-before-heard verses and modified hook by Eminem.  Personally, I think it's heat -- check it out ASAP.

Absolute FIRE from Eminem, Slaughter, and Yela (who's on the chorus). Em is the last verse, and of course absolutely kills it. Royce and Crooked lace it earlier. Collabo production from Just Blaze, Boi-1da, and The Maven.
