Best Downloads Of The Week (12/14/13)

Before we finally get into year-end list season, I decided to sort of kick things off with a roundup of Nardwuar’s 10 best interviews of 2013. You can expect to see plenty more of those in the coming week, but…

Best Downloads Of The Week (12/6/13)

We haven’t started posting our year-end lists just yet, but El-P went ahead and beat us (too) with his own list. That same day, Jay Z celebrated his 44th birthday and decided he’d do a list, too, but this was…

Best Downloads Of The Week (10/18/13)

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone that visited Potholes this past week, especially when we posted our report card of the BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers. We had our best single day of traffic ever and we obviously couldn’t…

Best Downloads Of The Week (10/11/13)

Off the top, I have to say that the biggest story of this week was that Danny Brown‘s long-awaited new album, Old, finally dropped. Well, Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 track list being revealed; the fact that Los Angeles police shut down…
