intellectual beat-down. All it takes is this prep course.
108 KID, ROCK
When we're teens, we make mix tapes for girls. When we outgrow that phase, they're
left to buy movie soundtracks. But we still have our records—and they'll
always be the soundtracks of our lives. BY ETHAN HAUSER
Jay-Z outsells everyone but Eminem. Hard-knock life? Not exactly. These days
