The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things.

This Week's Rapper: iLL LiaD
This Week's Subject(s): Greek Mythology (duh) and Nicki Minaj
Ask A Rapper: Do you find that a lot of rappers' names have a basis in Greek mythology?
iLL Liad: Actually, in Greece it's really big. Some of the best rap names I think exist like Zen, Ladose, Apexeis, Vita peis. As in America MCs, there is not to many that can actually come with some real truth behind any of their names in my eyes.
