Georgia based group Rehab emerged on the scene in '07 with a powerful seasoning of southern rock flavorings that catapulted their underground single, "Bartender Song" into a cult hit. The track had become the decade's premier 'bar song', and caught the attention of chart topping arbiters of rock and hip hop cuisine like Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker to inquire about covering the smash tune.

Spurred on by the rabid fan reaction, Rehab decided to re-record the song and add it to their sophomore album, Graffiti The World, along with an arsenal of new country-fried works that fans have descri...

Ali & Gipp
Whether it's the best of both worlds or the best of both hoods, it seems like every month or so two artists from different parts of the hip-hop world are promising their fans they're going to do a whole collaborative album together. Few of them ever happen.

But neither Ali (the founding member of the St. Lunatics, the platinum selling group that put St. Louis on the map) or Gipp (who's best known as a founding member of the Dungeon Family and a member of the much imitated, never duplicated Southern hip-hop group Goodie MOB) are the type to make false promises. "Gipp and I clicked insta...
