What the Game’s Been Missing

One bid ended, another may begin soon. But for now Beanie Sigel is a free man ready to make sense of the dismantling of his musical home.

FEATURES

That’s How Ya Feel

Yeah, Terrence Howard did his thing, but this ain’t a movie, dawg! Paul & Juicy rule Memphis, Ten-a-K! Buck you, haters!

Get It All Together

Swishahouse is running this H-Town rap shit for now, but don’t think Chamillionaire ain’t gonna get his shine on. Get ya mind correct!

Full Time

Andre 3000 can stay shooting flicks. His OutKast partner, Big Boi, is poised to earn his CEO stripes. Purple Ribbon is in the building!

Bring Me Down

He’s had a hard-knock life inside and outside of the music biz. Still stronger than a guerrilla, Killer Mike remains focused on fulfilling his destiny.

Crossroads

His last album flopped, and Bubba Sparxxx must start from scratch. Still, our money’s on the second-best White MC in the game. Don’t count this country cracker out!

It Is What It Is

They’re the Southern rap group the world should be bumping in their boom boxes. XXL likes Dirty—y’all should, too.

Love My Style

Before the tragedy that engulfed his city, Lil Wayne was cocky and confident that the rap audience was gonna give him his dues. Just like the Birdman did!
