On Tuesday April 15, August Alsina dropped the visuals for "Get Ya Money" featuring Fabolous on 106 & Park (after shutting down Keshia Chante which you should probably watch). The visuals tell a story of a stripper working for a better life for herself and her family.
After a busy weekend full of partying for Coachella 2014, the MTV Movie Awards went down live last night, hosted by Conan O'Brien. The event isn't strictly hip-hop, but nonetheless some of our favorite rap chicks made an appearance at the awards ceremony.
Following some Twitter drama last night, when Iggy Azalea and boyfriend Nick Young were mistaken for another couple in a naked photo, Iggy returns today with a stream of album snippets from her debut album The New Classic.
Two days ago The Source magazine unveiled the first cover for the new April/May 2014 issue, and Black Hippy's ScHoolboy Q graced the cover solo, making it his first solo magazine cover. The MC shouted out the long-standing hip-hop magazine on Twitter for apparently cleaning up his beard in the photograph.
Kanye West has always been well aware that the press is a necessary evil when it comes to gaining success. But as his presence in music and his other ventures have grown (his affiliation with Kim Kardashian not withstanding), so has the demand for pictures and coverage of him.
Beyonce channels Marilyn Monroe with short blonde hair for her new cover of OUT magazine. The Queen Bey shot a bunch of black and white photographs with OUT for their latest issue, and this makes for her first cover since she dropped her surprise self-titled album.
ScHoolboy Q is popping off, and we know this not only because of his sales for Oxymoron which landed him his very first (and TDE's first) #1 Billboard debut, but because he's getting magazine covers solo dolo, without the 'Black Hippy' affiliation/crew.
Kanye West is bigger than ever but even he must find his most recent legal problems a bit deflating...or dare we say, humbling. When he bashed up a paparazzo at LAX a little while back, Yeezy was sentenced to two years probation and a total of 24 mandatory anger management sessions.
Tory Lanez definitely has some buzz behind his name at the moment. Following the release of his r'n'b flavored Chixtape 2, the rapper-slash-singer appeared as a featured artist on YG's debut album My Krazy Life, plus he's been busy touring with G-Eazy & Rockie Fresh.
YG had a pretty strong debut album, which dropped a week ago today, My Krazy Life. The album brought that new West Coast sound to the masses, with plenty of DJ Mustard production and a cohesive theme tying it all together.
YG's My Krazy Life came out last week, and it's already received plenty of acclaim from critics. The term classic gets thrown around a lot these days, but it has definitely been used a little more than usual with this project.
YG has been enjoying decent reception for his album My Krazy Life since it was released a few days ago. It has a dirty, thorough sound that the recalls the echoes of previous recent masterpieces, like Kendrick's "GOOD Kid" record.
YG just released his debut album today, and the sales projections for the project are already in. My Krazy Life, which was released on Def Jam, is expected to do reasonable numbers this week, predicted to move about 45-55,000 units.
YG first popped up on the radar with the 2009 song "Toot It And Boot It" featuring Ty Dolla $ign. While he was locked up serving a six-month sentence for a parole violation stemming from a home invasion, the Compton native saw the song steadily climb the Billboard charts.
Remember back in July when Kanye West “attacked” a photographer at LAX and was later charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft? Well, it looks like Yeezus can finally put those charges behind him, but not before he first pays for his so-called “crime”.
Female rapper of former White Girl Mob fame, Lil Debbie sat down with Bossip to discuss her latest EP, California Sweetheart and her opinions and experiences with some other famed artists. On the subject of similar artist, Iggy Azalea, Lil Debbie had this to say:
