The best rap and hiphop news that I usually find comes from sites like raprandom.com. Of course there are many other good sites as well, but I like that one a lot. You've probably also heard of Boxden. They have been around for awhile and always have some funny and interesting hiphop news on there. RapRandom usually has brand new tracks and videos to watch. Lots of crazy stuff has been happening in the hiphop scene lately that it's kind of hard to keep up with. This summer should be interesting though, lots of good music on the way.
