    Heart-Attack Man

    Oddly enough, former House of Pain (HoP) member and current hip-hop troubadour Everlast is proving himself to be a crossbreed of b-boy and Johnny Cash. In his current incarnation -- as guitar-wielding Whitey Ford -- he sports a streetwise, middle-fin...

    Asian Flav

    Despite tremendous SoundScan sales numbers, something is missing from today's hip-hop. Humor, a rap music staple during the '80s in the hands of Biz Markie and others, has all but disappeared as the music's popularity has increased; instead of hittin...
