    I first saw Vince Staples through his baby picture, the artwork to his breakout mixtape, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1, was floating down my Tumblr feed in 2011. However, it wasn’t until I was listening to Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris, that I was blown away listening to Vince completely slaughter the outro of “Hive,” and from there on anything else I heard him on. In 2014 after releasing his second installment of Shyne Coldchain Vol.

    Between producing for Kanye West, (arguably) founding the trap-rave genre with Lunice in TNGHT, and being signed to cutting-edge electronic label Warp, Scotland native Hudson Mohawke is a busy man. That's probably why it's taken him close to six years to release a follow-up to 2009's Butter. Next week, he'll drop his new album Lantern, and one week in advance, we get the opportunity to stream it, courtesy of iTunes Radio.

    Not a lot of people can captivate their listeners in the realm of R&B anymore. Do you remember when Mary J. Blige soulfully wowed us on Jay Z’s “Can’t Knock The Hustle”? Do you remember when Jamie Foxx channeled his inner Ray Charles on Kanye West’s “Gold Digger”? Times like that were special.

    Jhene Aiko's debut album impacted last year, and while she scored a hit (and Grammy nomination) with lead single, "The Worst", most of her recent radio play has come from her feature on Omarion's surprise smash, "Posed To Be". Jhene decided to go off-brand with her contribution, introducing a playful side of herself we usually don't see on record. One line from her verse in particular inspired a double take from fans -- “Might let your boy chauffeur me, but he got to eat the booty like groceries.”

    Lecrae is on the way to becoming a household name, which is a feat for a rapper, let alone a Christian rapper. The rapper made an impressive debut this past week, with Anomaly topping the Billboard 200 and selling just under 100k, with 88,000. While the sales projections indicated it'd be a close race between Jhene Aiko and Lecrae, Lecrae came out the clear winner.

    The first week sales projections for Lecrae's Anomaly and Jhene Aiko's Souled Out are in, and they're not what you might imagine. Expected to hit the number one spot this week, Lecrae's Anomaly is looking end its first seven-day period with a solid 75,000-80,000 copies sold--an impressive figure for a "Christian Hip-Hop" artist. Lecrae's last album, Gravity, debuted to similar numbers and sold in excess of 150,000 copies before falling off the charts.

    Jhene Aiko's long-awaited debut album, Souled Out is dropping next week, and the free spirited singer has gained a considerable amount of hype around the release.
