January 11th, 2011 marked the release of ‘H.A.M.’, the much-anticipated 1st single from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch the Throne’ album. “Going HAM” (i.e. going hard or going all out on a given task) has been part of our Hip-Hop vernacular since.
January 11th, 1971 marks the birth of the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige. With 65 million+ units moved to date, she’s one of the most influential Hip-Hop artists of our time, male or female. Happy Birthday Ms. Mary!
