28 Grams: Hip-Hop Instagram Recap (April 30) Apr 30, 2016 at 02:49pm
Though Beyonce's LEMONADE had the internet coming for Jay Z, he still has enough clout for everyone who showed up to DJ Khaled's opening slot on the FORMATION tour to pose for a photo with the New York legend, including Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, and Khaled himself (who's now being managed by the mogul). Outside of that, we saw Drake nimbly avoid an out of bounds ball at a recent NBA game, which promptly turned into its very own meme, as well as a series of selfies with the 6 Mom, Sandy Graham.

Review: Big Sean & Jhené Aiko's "TWENTY88" Apr 6, 2016 at 06:18pm
Last year's Dark Sky Paradise was a big step up for Big Sean. He culled his finest crop of beats yet, finessed natural-sounding collabs out of some of the biggest artists around, and most importantly, finally let go of his goofiest lyrical impulses in favor of more mature songwriting that still didn't sacrifice any of his characteristic charm.
