Excited to announce one of my favorite series on Da-What.com, the Top 10 to Watch For of 2014.  Got a diverse list that spans the whole country.

#Bestof2013 – Top 10 Retail Albums [List]

December 31, 2013 by

The grand finale of 2013, the best retail projects to come out this year. People are becoming less interested in full retail projects.  Others even think that many artists’ mixtapes outperform the albums.  It is still the album that boosts the artist to the next level though.  It is a classic debut that sets an […]

In order not to hurt anyone’s feelings by calling their “street album” a “mixtape” or anything like that, we rank our favorite projects that were given away for free and those that we were supposed to pay for.  Free music has become a staple of the hip hop game.  It is up to you HOW […]

We waited as long as we could to fit in December releases but with less than a week left in 2013, we need to get our year end lists out there.  One of the things I am most proud of from the previous year is the launch of the ‘Da’ is Hip Hop? weekly series.  […]

“Top 10 to Watch For” is one of the first editorials I started on Da-What and it is still one of my favorites. Alumni from my list include most of the big time music out there both on the blogs and the radio; I would even say my lists are usually more accurate than the […]

So we have done a few End of the Year “Best of” posts that look at some different products that rappers have put out this year but all of them have to do with the quality of music! What about the artist we hear every day on TV and the radio that aren’t quite as […]

Here is the next end of the year wrap up as 2012 winds down.  The Top 10 projects that were for sale.  Again, naming just 10 in a spectacular year of music is next to impossible but in addition to Sol’s Yours Truly, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ The Heist and GOOD Music’s Cruel Summer, I […]

First off, just a reminder: I don’t do semantics so I don’t want to get into it with anyone complaining that their street album was grouped with the mixtapes and the FreEPs blah blah blah.  If you gave your music away for free, I put it in one category, if you charged then it is […]
