    Frank Ocean's cancellation of his headlining FYF Fest performance is just one of the ways he's disappointed fans recently (where's the album?), but luckily, the proven showman Kanye West stepped in for Ocean, and made sure to make up for his absence with a special surprise for the crowd -- Rihanna. RiRi made two appearances during Ye's set, first for their monster-hit, "All Of The Lights," and later for an intimate performance of "Four, Five, Seconds," where the singer got right up in the faces of the audience.

    Rappers are generally hit-or-miss in the concert setting. Some MCs can really rock a crowd while others are notorious for being sloppy, tardy, or brief with their shows. If you've been to a solid handful of rap shows, you've definitely been kept waiting around for an obnoxious amount of time waiting for an MC to show up, only to have him phone in a handful of songs and split. We know we have.

    The Best Food-Related Rap Lyrics Of All Time
    Aug 20, 2015 at 09:26am
    Rap has an long-running obsession with food. Even "Rapper's Delight' couldn't resist speaking about grub, and when Wonder Mike dropped these words on the eighth verse of the pinnacle track, it opened up a lane that hasn't shut down since...

Like when Biggie introduced us to his favorite breakfast: "a t-bone steak, cheese, eggs, and Welch's grape."

    People-- even the ones who disliked Yeezus-- really want to hear Kanye West's new album. Obviously, that much can be inferred from the fact that he's simultaneously our generation's most respected and most controversial hip hop artist, but beyond that, fans are taking pretty desperate measures to hear new music from him.

Cole, Kaytranada, Vic Mensa and G-Eazy scattered through out the four days.  However if you're looking for a rap-themed day, you should hit up the Sunday, as that's when you'll catch Kanye, Travi$, Vic and producer Kaytranada.

He's currently involved in finishing SWISH with West, and during a recent interview with Montreality, he spoke on the album's status.

    We were pretty shocked earlier this week when long-silent G.O.O.D. Music MC CyHi The Prynce let loose a fiery track called "Elephant in The Room" and effectively announced his departure from the label. In a series of new tweets, he took the time to clarify some points he was making on the song, including the fact that he doesn't consider it a Kanye West diss. Read those tweets below.

    Vic Mensa has earned some very important co-signs over short time, as well as landing himself a deal with Roc Nation, but according to the rapper, he wasn't seeking out any of it. In a new interview with the Guardian, Vic reveals that his outlook on his music has always been independent-minded, before commenting on the fakeness of rapper's jewelry, and Oasis' disapproval for Kanye Wests's headlining set at Glastonbury. Mensa believes Kanye's Yeezus carried the spirit of Rock & Roll in some ways.

    Reaching peak visibility during Kanye West's inescapable "G.O.O.D. Fridays" series that served as a prelude to 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, G.O.O.D. Music has since become one of the most revered labels in hip hop. Even if it's not nearly as prolific as other indies, most would still call you a fool if you turned down a chance to sign with Kanye, especially in the wake of recent successes like Dark Sky Paradise and My Name Is My Name.
