Ever since news broke of his record deal with Shady Records earlier this year, fans have been itching for Alabama emcee Yelawolf’s debut release Radioactive. And now, despite a few minors setbacks along the way, Catfish Billy is gearing up to drop his long anticipated LP this November 21 right in time for the holidays. To celebrate the release, HipHopFiend decided to catch with Yela to talk about his love of Three 6 Mafia and Redman, balancing his rock and rap influences and partying to Beatles cover bands in the UK.
It’s been three long years since Young Jeezy’s last outing The Recession, and now, after what seems dozens of setbacks, the Snowman is finally set to return with his fourth LP Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition this December 20. And with the recent news that three Hip Hop lyrical titans – Andre 3000, Jay-Z and Eminem – are slated to appear on the project, Complex’s timing couldn’t be more perfect with their preview of TM103. Does Jeezy’s latest effort live up to his past chart smashes? Check out Complex’s preview to find out.
Although it’s hard for fans to discount much of anything in his discography, perhaps Tupac Shakur’s two most celebrated albums are All Eyez On Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. For many fans, the debate over the two albums is complicated by Pac’s passing; both projects dropped in 1996, and many fans looked to the posthumously released Don Killuminati for answers to his untimely death, leading it to top even the Beatles in first week sales. But for Complex, however, the debate over which is the superior album is simple question of quality. Check out their latest installment of “End of Discussion” to see why they think all eyes should be on The 7 Day Theory.
