Much to Meek Mill's delight, Drake and Co. opted out of their OVO Radio show on Beats 1 tonight due to OVO Fest, so in their place, Dr. Dre hosted a show of his own. Entitled "The Pharmacy," this week's edition had Ice Cube and "Straight Outta Compton" director F. Gary Gray guesting, and the announcement of Dre's upcoming album Compton: The Soundtrack.

Dr. Dre's currently hosting a Beats 1 radio show called "The Pharamacy," and as expected, he used the occasion to announce something about the upcoming soundtrack to Straight Outta Compton. More surprising, though, was some news about his mysterious, long-gestating album Detox.

Tomorrow, Dr. Dre is dropping... something. Ice Cube said as much in an interview earlier this week, calling the release in question "an album inspired by the "Compton" movie," referring to the August 14th N.W.A. biopic that he, Dre and director F. Gary Gray have been working on. But will this be just another "music inspired by the film"-style soundtrack? Or something bigger?

Long in-the-works N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" is finally scheduled to drop two weeks from Friday (on August 14th), but what about its almost equally-hyped soundtrack? Earlier this month, we got word from director F. Gary Gray that Dr. Dre would be executive producing, and it would feature Eminem and Kendrick Lamar, which only made for more anticipation. Yesterday, Ice Cube let slip that the album will arrive on Friday.

Since launching earlier this month, Apple Music has swept the rug from under TIDAL’s feet and made a markedly successful splash, delivering a diverse catalogue of options for their new Beats Radio 1 feature. Providing 24/7 entertainment and quality-listening for such a large market can be challenging, but Apple has pulled it off-- especially when it comes to options for hip-hop fans.

It all seemed like fantastic, luxurious, one-percent-y fun and games during the initial TIDAL press conference. Music mogul Sean “Jay-Z” Carter’s launched his rebranding of the year-old streaming service he had recently acquired by strutting out stars of meteoric magnitude, both young and old, shuffled out like battling champions in a proverbial game of thrones. Like a "Song of Ice and Fire," the words burned like an effigy as the music industry (critics, artists, and fans alike) were urged to brace themselves for something new.

We knew something big was in the cards when Apple purchased Beats (both the headphones and the streaming service), and this week we finally got to see the plans unveiled with the debut of Apple Music. While the service in general is nothing we haven't seen on Spotify, Rdio, or Tidal before, the introduction of Beats 1 Radio has served us a little more excitement. Yesterday, Killer Mike and El-P launched their Run The Jewels radio show, and we know that Drake, Pharrell, and more will be acting as hosts on the station sooner or later.

Natural Born Hustlers: Top 5 Rapper CEOs Jul 1, 2015 at 12:33pm
The rap game is filled with natural born hustlers, that much is undeniable. It is truly astonishing, looking at how so many MCs, since the inception of the genre itself, have successfully used hip-hop as a platform to become titans of multiple industries. Even though Jay Z (spoiler alert: he’s on this list) was the one who coined the phrase “I’m not a businessman. I’m a business, man,” he has not been the only rapper to make it a reality.

Taylor Swift has been reluctant to join streaming services in the past, but as we saw recently, T-Swift got Apple Music to pony up royalties for artists during it's three-month trial period. Taylor returned the favor by allowing the streaming service to have the sole stream of her album 1989 which she famously refused to put on Spotify.

In the past few weeks, we've been stoking our curiosity about rappers' new albums by coming up with wish lists of the various things we'd think would ensure dopeness. We've already dreamed up idealized versions of Childish Gambino's upcoming project and Lil Wayne's quickly approaching Free Weezy Album, and now it's time to tackle a long in-the-works sequel to one of Cali's most celebrated albums of the 2000s.

It's been rumored for a while that Drake and Pharrell would be contributing to Apple Music in one way or another, and the popular theory was that the artists would be contributing to a radio service provided by the company. This has all truned out to be true, as Zane Lowe (who made his way from BBC1, and will also host his own show) has revealed that Drake, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Elton John, Disclosure and the one and only Jaden Smith will all have their own programs through Beats 1 Radio.
