    Tracklist Revealed For A$AP Rocky's "A.L.L.A"
    May 21, 2015 at 01:46pm
    A$AP Rocky's upcoming album A.L.L.A is definitely one of the most anticipated releases coming this summer. We received the album art the other week, which pays homage to Rocky's fallen friend A$AP Yams. Today that's followed up with the tracklisting. The album appears to be pretty feature-heavy, but we're sure Rocky will still come out as the star.

    Lean is by no means a new craze in hip-hop. Since the early days of DJ Screw, promethazine mixed with codeine and Sprite has been the recipe for many southern classics. Though purple drank originated in Houston, it has slurred its way into Atlanta, New Orleans, and just about every other hip-hop metropolis in the country.

    Summer's almost here, and as the weather heats up, so does the music. More than any other season, we define summer by our favorite tunes, which usually coincide with our most memorable (or never to be remembered) moments of revelry.

    As far DJs go, there's no one who sells more music than DJ Khaled. Khaled Khaled (no typo) is far from just a DJ though. The Miami hip-hop magnate is the founder and CEO of We the Best Music Group, which includes artists like Ace Hood and dancehall superstar Movado, and the President of Def Jam South, which helped revive Def Jam as a whole toward the end of the '00s.

    10 Hottest Singing-Rappers Right Now
    May 7, 2015 at 04:31pm
    Nowadays the lines are becoming blurred as to who is a rapper and who is a singer. Not only are genres being bent in different directions, so that it's not uncommon to find an EDM influence (or folk, if it's Yelawolf) in a rap song and vice versa, but vocals are being bent in every which way as well. Rappers are experimenting with flows and voices, like Kendrick Lamar, and they're also pushing the boundaries when it comes to being a singer.

    With yesterday's remix of Fetty Wap's "My Way," we're getting that feeling that this summer's gonna be Drizzy season yet again. Drizzy had the most successful 2014 of anyone who didn't put out an album, and he did it by dropping impromptu remixes on the ever-fashionable OVO soundcloud. First, the TOPSZN boys bumped up Tinashe's "2 On" to level 6, and, then, weekdays were forever changed as he flexed his vocals to the max on iLoveMakonnen's "Tuesday."

    140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week (April 25 - May 1)
    May 1, 2015 at 06:14pm
    We seem to be hitting somewhat of a lull in the album release cycle, with some big drops coming in June and July (Lil Durk, Migos, Frank Ocean), but no huge ones coming in this week or the next (unless we actually do get Chance The Rapper's Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment's SURF). Many of this week's happenings centered on the events surrounding Freddie Gray's funeral and the ensuing protests in Baltimore and NYC, and elsewhere we had basketball playoffs, relationship drama and more.

    Future and Ciara seemed destined to be one of our favorite couples in the business, but after building a family together (baby Future was born in 2014), the couple parted ways, reportedly because the rapper cheated on CiCi. Ciara's new single, "I Bet," takes direct aim at her ex, suggesting that the rapper will start to miss her once she finds a new man ("bet you'll start lovin' me, soon as I start lovin' someone else, somebody better than you").

    Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was recently spotted at a Seattle Mariners game, and we got a grainy shot off an attractive woman seated next to him. Soon after, the Internet began rumoring that the woman might be "I Bet" singer Ciara, and it turns out they were right.

    Jay 305's buzz is beginning to transcend the internet and his native West Coast, with the release of his lead single "Thuggin," produced by DJ Mustard. The OPM-affiliated rapper may already have a major label deal under his belt (Interscope), however he's still pretty new to this rap thing, and was thus a perfect match for our On The Come Up series.

    Ciara's next album drops at the beginning of May, and while she's out promoting Jackie, the media is still thirsty to get the scoop on what happened between her and Future. The two dated for almost a year and a half and had a child, Future Jr., together. Since calling things off, Future has slipped into a codeine-induced depression (while still releasing the hottest mixtapes around), and Ciara has remained relatively quiet.

    Future's rise to stardom wouldn't be possible without the help of Mike Will Made It, and vice versa. Mike Will produced many of Future's breakout hits, including Pluto's "Turn on the Lights", and he executively produced last year's Honest.

    Auto-tune was something of a taboo in rap, for some it may always be, but for the most part, it's been accepted as a common songwriting tool. As prevalent as it may be today, there was only on figure who can really be attributed with popularizing the effect, and that's T-Pain (sorry, Cher).
