Cover Story

“Man Up”

What a year it’s been for THE GAME. He’s feuded with family, friends and business associates, fought depression and changed labels. Now it’s time for his sophomore LP, and rap fans can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

Features

“Addicted To the Life”

His everyday hustle paid off with a debut album that topped the pop charts. Miami’s got a new boss, and his name is RICK ROSS.

“Tell It Like It Is”

So far KHIA’S second album has generated more buzz than sales. The Thug Misses isn’t worried about her numbers, though, ’cause she’s got some lady MCs to handle first.

“We Rollin’”

Everyone’s got a video camera and is making their own rap documentaries nowadays—us included. Paying homage to the hood, we give you 20 CLASSIC STREET DVD MOMENTS.

“Then And Now”

He’s been heavy on the Houston rap scene for years but didn’t get much national exposure during the recent H-Town explosion. Could it finally be LIL’ KEKE’S time to shine?

“Take It There”

Trying to make its way in the hip-hop industry for years, BLACK HAND ENTERTAINMENT has struggled to break through. But with two promising artists on its roster, things could change for the Queens outfit.
