Frank Ocean first revealed himself as a generational songwriting talent on his 2011 debut nostalgia, ULTRA, then emerged as a full-blown star on the strength of the 2012's Channel Orange, which amounted to a series of vignettes about wealth, drugs, friendship, and love.

Frank Ocean just dropped, and everything seems to be in its right place again. His new album, which appeared on Apple Music in surprise fashion, is entitled Blonde and not Boys Don't Cry, which had been the rumored title for over a year. However, Ocean did put out a magazine called "Boys Don't Cry" in coordination with the release of Blonde. The magazine appeared at four different pop-up shops in four different cities.

Smothered & Covered: 6 Great Moments In Hip Hop X Waffle House History May 18, 2016 at 05:46pm
There's something about Waffle House that brings out the inner beast in people. The food, combined with the ambience, is nothing short of incredible. It holds a special place in the hearts and minds of countless rappers. "This ain't IHOP," Waka Flocka rapped in his famed collaboration with Travis Porter, "Waffle House". "This the waffle house. Know how we rock, put it in her mouth."

In an interview with the “Kevin & Bean” show on Los Angeles’ KROQ, Travis was joined by his bandmates to talk about the new album, but also shared an interesting tidbit about running into Andre 300 at Coachella.
Chris Rock Says Andre 3000 Working On New Album, Can't Tell If Joke
Chris Rock Says Andre 3000 Working On New Album, Can't Tell If Joke Apr 8, 2016 at 09:26am
Is Chris Rock trolling us? The actor took his twitter and Instagram accounts late last night to share a group photo that included Andre 3000, Jarobi, Dave Chapelle, D-Nice and Jack White. That's quite the group by itself, but it was Chris Rock's caption that's got the internet in a tizzy. The comedian, who is no stranger to a dry joke, captioned the post, "Me , Dave , D-nice , jack white and jarobi hard at work on the new Andre 3000 album." Hmmm. Is he just playing with our emotions? It's really hard to tell, so we'll just embed the post below and leave it at that.

Last night, "A Celebration Of Phife" was held at the Apollo, an event which saw a number of special guests speaking and performing in honor of Phife Dawg, the legendary rapper and member of  A Tribe Called Quest who passed last month. Among the speakers were Tribe members Q-Tip, Jarobi, and Ali Shahed Muhammad, as well as Kanye West and Andre 3000.

Kendrick Lamar & Andre 3000 Remember Phife Dawg On Q-Tip's Abstract Radio Show Mar 26, 2016 at 04:24pm
Earlier in the week, hip-hop experienced a huge loss, as Phife Dawg, legendary rapper and member of a Tribe Called Quest, lost his battle with diabetes. The day he died saw a large outpouring of tributes from artists and fans on social media, but last night, on fellow Tribe member Q-Tip's Abstract Radio show, Phife was honored more extensively. Tip offered a mix of classic verses and rarities, while a few artists who found inspiration in the late rapper's words shared thoughts on his legacy.
The 10 Best R&B/Rap Covers Of Classic Songs
The 10 Best R&B/Rap Covers Of Classic Songs Mar 18, 2016 at 04:22pm
Searching "rap covers" online is like walking into a minefield of acoustic guitars and webcams, leftovers from a war that began with Ben Folds' famous version of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit." An earnest-sounding white dude with a guitar and an angelic backing choir singing things like "Lick on these nuts and suck the dick" was (believe it or not) novel at some point, but now that approach has been beaten to death. Last year, for example, a ten year old covered "Trap Queen."

Erykah Badu dropped her mixtape last night, But You Caint Use My Phone, however it wasn't a 'proper' mixtape (and by that we mean, 'free'), it was released exclusively via iTunes and Apple Music. Thus you can purchase your own copy or else stream it on Apple Music.
Outkast Turned Down An Opportunity To Perform At The 2004 Super Bowl
Outkast Turned Down An Opportunity To Perform At The 2004 Super Bowl Nov 5, 2015 at 07:20pm
The New England Patriots narrowly defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII, but no one remembers that. All that anyone outside New England remembers from that Super Bowl is when Justin Timberlake accidentally-on-purpose ripped of Janet Jackson's shirt and bared her titty for all of Earth to see. The "wardrobe malfunction" could have been prevented, if Outkast had accepted the NFL's invitation to perform at that year's Super Bowl.

Classic Rotation: Outkast "Aquemini"
Classic Rotation: Outkast "Aquemini" Sep 29, 2015 at 01:25pm
Earlier this year we’ve done Classic Rotations pieces on Outkast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and ATLiens, and today we’re bringing you a reflection piece on Outkast’s third album, Aquemini. The 1998 follow-up to ATLiens was recorded in Atlanta and features a sound along those lines. It still sounds experimental in 2015, and it was completely out there seventeen years ago today, when it was first released.
Big Boi And Andre 3000 Have Been Discussing An Outkast Biopic
Big Boi And Andre 3000 Have Been Discussing An Outkast Biopic Sep 14, 2015 at 10:40am
The success of "Straight Outta Compton" has proved the commercial viability of rap biopics and sparked public (and private) interest in biopics about Master P, Tha Dogg Pound, Death Row Records, the Wu-Tang Clan. The latest -- a possible Outkast biopic.

Classic Rotation: Outkast's "ATLiens" Aug 27, 2015 at 06:16pm
If Outkast’s debut made the case that Big Boi and Andre 3000 were legitimate rappers, then their sophomore album proved that they were great artists. While the straight-forward gangster-pimpin’ vibe on Southernplayalistic was indeed awesome, the experimental nature of ATLiens was-- no, is-- absolutely mind-blowing.

#TBT: OutKast's Early Deep Cuts Jul 16, 2015 at 01:58pm
OutKast might be best known for their later material like "Ms. Jackson" and "Hey Ya!," but this duo's discography runs deep. Their first few albums, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, ATLiens, and Aquemini are hip-hop classics that melted southern twang with funky experimental fusion. With hits like "Elevators (Me & You)" and "Rosa Parks," OutKast began to pave their way to mainstream success, but it was lesser-known gems like "Babylon" and "Mainstream" that speak volumes of their limitless art.
10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time
10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time Jun 24, 2015 at 10:48am
The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

Atlanta is a modern-day hotspot for rap music, but before Young Thug, Migos, Ludacris, Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy or T.I. had captured the spotlight, there was a duo named OutKast. Andre 3000 and Big Boi’s debut album turns 21 today, and it’s important to understand the influence that the record had, and continues to have. It’s greatest accomplishment, arguably, was putting Atlanta hip-hop on the map. Maybe they weren’t the first to do it, but they were definitely the first to do it really, really well.
