A Slapdash History of the Hip-hop Megamix

The megamix is a variegated mural, with flashes of color – neon pink, chartreuse, head-gash red – popping off chipped concrete, an amalgamation of flavor so fresh it strains the vision, so vivid it glows.

The Pop Fan's Most-Anticipated Albums of 2012?

Here’s a look at what might be taking space in your CD collection or filling up your MP3 player this year.

Pusha T: Fear of God II: Let Us Pray

Fear of God II: Let Us Pray rarely highlights the strenghts Pusha T established as one-half of Virginian rap duo Clipse.

Reviews

Bought on the Fourth of July

With The Homeland Directive writer Robert Venditti offers a deep and meditative work on the nature of personhood in an era of mass marketing. Easily the equal of the illustrious works of John Reed or Jonathan Franzen, The Homeland Directive elevates both the political thriller genre and the comics medium.

'Twelve': Joel Schumacher's Gossip Girl on Drugs (trailer)

The latest from Schumacher fell pretty flat when it premiered this year at Sundance, but this sleek trailer still makes the drug-filled life of Upper East Side socialites worth watching.

50 Cent: Before I Self Destruct

One might think that the worst outcome for an artist like 50 Cent would be to alienate enough people to render himself completely alone in the music industry.

Music

Eminem: Relapse

Some people grow up, and others just get older. Em may be closing in on 40, but his rhymes are more immature than ever. It's getting sad -- Flava Flav sad.

50 Cent: The Money and the Power

Alternately disconcerting and trainwreck-fascinating, 50 Cent's entry into reality programming is a mix of The Apprentice and ego trip's The (White) Rapper Show.

Music

50 Cent: Curtis

Aside from a few tracks, there isn't much to love on 50 Cent's latest outing, but there's still plenty to like here. So, go ahead, make him a little bit richer.

Music

Timbaland: Shock Value

The man who calls himself Thomas Crown steps into the spotlight for an above-average pop album that could have been so much more.

Reviews

50 Cent: The Massace: Special Edition [CD/DVD]

Fiddy's no Brando, he probably isn't even a Tupac, but he can do a good imitation of someone writing a rhyme on the decks of a production studio or looking out the window of a tour van.

50 Cent: The Massacre

50 Cent's stories of the streets have the feel of first-person reportage from urban war zone.
