Monster - Kanye West feat. Bon Iver, Rick Ross, Jay-Z & Nicki Minaj I’m hearing that this is an unofficial release which is why the quality is so shitty, and knowing Kanye it will probably get pulled down soon, so get it while you can!

Hip Hop x 2010: Detox; Mixtapes
This year has the potential to be the best year in a long time, especially for hip–hop. We’ve prepared a few things that should be on your radar.

In 2002, he announced plans to release a “hip–hop musical,” a concept album looking at one central...
Last FM vs. Pandora
Here at Slaponomics, one of our main goals is to show you how to find your next favorite artist. Unfortunately, we only have five hundred words every two weeks with which to do that.
