These days when a rapper wants to promote their new album, they might hit up half a dozen media outlets in an afternoon, but back in 1994 the options were much more limited. Yo! MTV Raps was by far the most important though, particularly from the perspective of young fans starving for coverage of a genre that was still very much on the fringes of the mainstream.
In 2014, you can sit at your desk or pull out your phone and catch a real time stream of RapFix Live from wherever you may happen to be. But back in 1994 you were rushing home from school or fiddling with your VCR timer to be sure you didn’t miss that day’s special guest on Yo! As part of our ongoing retrospective coverage of the amazing year of music that was 1994, we pulled together a bunch of classic clips showcasing a wide array of artists doing promotional appearances for their new releases on MTV’s iconic show.
Many of the albums these guys were promoting would go on to be considered some of the greatest Rap albums ever recorded, and that’s a testament to the commitment to artistry displayed by individuals and groups like Redman, Gangstarr, Outkast, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Common (Sense), MC Eiht and Nas among others.

Before the MTV panel chooses their list on March 3rd, MTV got ahold of some rappers and asked who they thought were the hottest rappers in 2012.
Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Mac Miller, 2 Chainz, T.I. and A$ AP Rocky share their thoughts on Super Bowl XLVII which kicks-off on Sunday at 6:30 pm ET in New Orleans.
T.I. hits the the studio with Usher to work on a new song for his upcoming Trouble Man album in the latest episode of his reality show. With producer Rico Love controlling the boards, the trio cook up what they feel is a potential hit for TIP’s eighth studio LP. Earlier this month, Rico Love sat down with the good folks over at Rap-Up and expressed confidence in the final result from the ATL heavyweights.
“It’s just a dope, dope collabo. Usher and Tip, two Atlanta natives. This time I finally feel like they got a record that’s gonna be a humongous hit.”
Until we hear the full song, enjoy the preview up top.
Now while T.I. and Ursher were in studio, Tiny decides to go into business with her close friend Shekinah. The two have some problems when it comes to splitting the profits. Watch what happens in the full episode titled “Sixty Forty,” after the jump….
