    Destroyed - Hip-Hop's Ur-Self Got Himself a War

    It figured to be an anointment. Last week's Hot 97 Summer Jam was Nasir Jones's forum. The previous year, he'd been skewered by Jay-Z; this time, he was headlining, a symbolic acknowledgment that in the battle of titans that engulfed hip-hop last win...

    Sonic Euthanasia

    What do you do when your favorite band starts sucking? Stop buying their albums. But what if you can't, because you're so into them that you just have to know every note they record, even if it's unlistenable crap? And you have such a personal connec...
