How An L.A. Crip Inspired Me To Get Back To Work  

I've been fuckin' with west coast music since I can remember. Even though I was hella young I can remember always hearing Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and 2 Pac on Philly's Power 99 in the '90s and early '00s. Television stations like MTV, BET and The Box introduced me to legends like Dj Quik, E-40, Warren G, Tha Dogg Pound, Nate Dogg and so many more. In recent years, I've grown fond of dope west coast artists like Schoolboy Q, Nippsey Hussle, Dom Kennedy, YG and Ty Dolla $ign. The music almost makes me wish…

Other than a few old videos on Youtube, you couldn't get…

5 Things Every Artist Can Learn From Gucci Mane 

I'm from a region where longtime veteran rappers like Jadakiss and Fabolous still reign supreme . A lot of rap fans where I'm from would rather keep a Jada freestyle on repeat  or bump "Soultape 2" than listen to a banger by Kevin Gates. Personally, I've always kept an open mind when it came to music and it never mattered if the artist was from Brooklyn, New York or Dumas, Texas -- if I fucks with you, I fucks with you.

Top Five's Top 5 Favorite Rappers of All Time 

I often refer to myself as Top Five and it's not because I think I'm one of the Top Five hottest rappers out. The nickname is inspired by a goofy conversation about one of my football coaches from college. I've been putting random stuff into a Top Five category for years and it's only right that I share Top Five's Top 5 Favorite Rappers of All Time.    5) Curren$y

I didn't like him when he was with Young Money, but I heard him on a song with Young Chris from Young Gunz and I thought he was nice. A few…
