Over the years Hip Hop has changed with a new sound and new faces. Throughout the last few years we have seen the likes of Big Sean, Drake, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole and many others take the mantle from their successors Like Nas, Jay-Z and Lil’ Kim Who in turn took their learnings from The Notourious B.I.G, Tupac, N.W.A, Rakim, Salt & Pepa, KRS1 and many more from the late 80s to early 90s. Well 2012 has seen a surge in fresh new talent ready to take the hip hop world by storm.
Australian IT girl Iggy Azalea who is now a member of T.I‘s ‘Hustle Gang’ on Grand Hustle, Also Chip formally known as Chipmunk who shot to fame here in London under the latter name as a ‘Grime’ MC and has now seen much success Since becoming more commercial over the years. Chip is also a member along side Iggy Azalea on T.I‘s Hustle Gang movement. Azealia Banks a Harlem rapper who is currently signed to Interscope Records and has recently released a brand new EP entitled ’1991′ causing a stir currently in the game with many twitter beefs and verbal altercations with the likes of T.I and Lil’ Kim many feel Azealia needs to walk before she can run in this game. Two other names causing a huge buzz in hip hop right now is A$ap Rocky and Kendrick Lamar. Rocky who is also from Harlem and recently signed an unprecedented $3M deal with Sony saw his career take off since the release of ‘Purple Swag’ and ‘Goodie’.

September 15th 1996, Just two days after Tupac Shakur‘s untimely death, Was the release of his 6th single ‘I Ain’t Mad At Cha’ from his 9 times platinum selling album ‘All Eyez On Me’. The video was shot months before Tupac died but the label only released it once he had passed. The song was never commercially released in the US but it was released oversea’s and became a top 20 hit here in the UK for the rapper peaking at number 13 on the UK charts. The video was fitting to the situation at hand, showing Tupac passing away and eventually ending up in heaven with other lost greats in music such as Jimi Hendix and Sammy Davis Jr. Produced by Daz Dillinger and featured Death Row recording artist Danny Boy. Reminisce after the jump to Tupac’s ‘I Ain’t Mad At Cha’ on #ThrowbackThursdays
