Happy Birthday Jay-ZRemember when a rapper was considered old if he or she was in their 30s? Well what does that say about Jay-Z who turned 42 this week? Watch the latest segment of The Aftermath to get Soren Baker and my commentary on the "Watch The Throne" rapper's age and place in the game.
Ironically it was Jay-Z who called for the "D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)," and this week the Autotune king T-Pain releases his long-anticipated album, "rEVOLVEr." Was Jay-Z right or has T-Pain breathed new life into his sound?
There is a particular hip-hop trend that The Aftermath would love see die off—the never ending Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim saga. We love a good hip-hop beef as much as the next rap fan, but the latest jabs from these ladies have failed to make an impact. Time to call it a wrap.
Next, we have a couple quick mentions about Ludacris' website for kids, a new retail site from okayplayer, and Harvard's latest hip-hop guest speaker, Wu-Tang Clan member GZA.
