Being a true hip hop head, this was a tough week for me. As we reported earlier in the week, Hip Hop lost one of it's greats with the passing of ATCQ's founder Phife Dawg. His music has been a constant part of my life since I found hip hop when I was in high school and it's sad to think we will never see the whole crew on stage again.
But if hip hop is known for one thing, it's resiliency. We have lost many great artists and producers well before they should have gone and the music always finds a way to carry on and honor those who helped blaze the trail before them. With that being said, we will carry on with another weekly chart but let be be known that our hearts remain heavy for Phife and his family. One love.

New music from Big Sean with Tommy Brown on the beat. This probably wont be a club banger or anything but I'm not mad at it at all!

I swear Kid Cudi should just only make tracks with Plain Pat. I'm feeling this one for sure!
