"You've got to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees and usually when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most. But never stop fighting, no matter what anyone says, no matter how they try to compromise your vision."

    For the better part of the past three years, "trap" has referred to much more than the music of Young Jeezy, T.I., Gucci Mane, etc. Beats like Baauer's "Harlem Shake" and RL Grime's remix to Kanye West's "Mercy" have ignited dance-floors and festivals using the same label to describe their sound.

    If you remember back in 2013, Kanye West was sued by former soul singer Ricky Spicer, of The Ponderosa Twins Plus One, for using vocals of his all throughout the Yeezus song “Bound 2”.

He sought an injunction and damages for alleged violations of New York civil right of publicity law (section 51), however, that lawsuit now appears to be in the past.

    After his debut album, Live.Long.A$AP, ASAP Rocky went quiet for awhile-- music-wise, that is. In the interim between L.L.A. and A.L.L.A., Rocky rose atop the fashion world and romanced some very high-profile celebrities. He didn't forget the music, though, and A.L.L.A. is certainly his most ambitious project yet.

    Dear Graduates: Life Lessons From Kanye West's "College Dropout"
    May 27, 2015 at 12:23pm
    Kanye West unleashed College Dropout in 2004 - the album, a hip-hop staple, was a satire of the American education system and I was just 13 years old. Frankly, I’m not entirely sure how I even knew of the album. I do remember though, standing adamantly against a wall of a Virgin Records store, listening to the album, and it was quickly burned to a CD upon my arrival home.

    ASAP Rocky's A.L.L.A. is set to hit stores next month, but we still don't know a whole lot about it. At this point, we're taking any news we can get, and some tweets from HOT 97's Deanii Digital have given us a couple of clues as to what to expect from Rocky's sophomore outing. The biggest takeaway from Deanii's report is that Kanye West has production on one record. Apparently, most of the other songs are provided by Danger Mouse, who's previously worked with DOOM, Gorillaz, The Black Keys, and Beck.
