Fetty Wap - Jimmy Choo It's been less than two months since Fetty Wap's debut self-titled album, which went No. 1, and he's already dropped a joint tape with French Montana and has another EP in the works. "Jimmy Choo," dedicated to the Malaysian fashion designer, would sound nicely on the upcoming release. It's softer than most of Fetty's radio anthems, as Zoovier channels the sound of his new life of luxury.

Summer Jam 2015 Recap Jun 8, 2015 at 07:24pm
Summer's here, and festival season has arrived. Unfortunately, for hip-hop heads, most of the summer's premier music destinations are filled with laptop DJs or bands that introduced your parents to LSD 40 years ago. Luckily, for all of us on the East Coast, there's Summer Jam. Though it's just one day, the HOT 97-curated concert features over 10 hours of straight hip-hop in Giants' stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

This year's Summer Jam was one of the more stacked lineups in recent memory. The festival and main stage lineups seemed interchangeable at times, which is a testament to how strong the bill was throughout. The show was full of surprises, with Fabolous bringing out a who's-who of New York icons, including Remy Ma, Fat Joe, The LOX, Raekwon, Mase, and many more. Meanwhile, Chris Brown brought out French Montana and G-Unit (on stage at once!), and Meek Mill closed things out with Future and Nicki Minaj.

The sad part is, none of it seems to be his fault. Today, however, we got "Glory," a brand new Weezy single, premiered exclusively on TIDAL.
