Kanye Birthday Mix: 39 Tracks For Ye's 39th Jun 8, 2016 at 06:34pm

The influential rapper and producer celebrates his birthday today, and tens years after changing the game with his debut album, The College Dropout, he's still finding new ways to reinvent himself. At the same time, he's accomplished so much in his career, it would be silly to think of him as any younger than he is, but there's no better time to look back at his accomplishments than his born day, so we've assembled 39 of his most celebratory records.

Kanye West's Career By The Numbers Jun 8, 2016 at 01:36pm
Kanye West celebrates his 39th birthday today-- it's hard to believe that Yeezy is nearing the 40-year mark. He remains as youth-oriented as ever, whether it's co-signing up and comers (and collaborating with them too-- he's more than just a co-signer), designing clothes/sneakers/etc that millennials around the world are obsessed with, or rapping about current events with a sly sense of humor, Kanye has always remained acutely connected to pop culture.

We recently got to hear 1/3 of Migos on Kanye West's lead Cruel Winter single, "Champions," however it sounds like the group as a whole has a lot more in store with Ye. This isn't exactly surprising, we did see the trio chilling with Kanye on Easter, however now we have proper confirmation that there's stuff "in the chamber."

Let's play six degrees of separation with this week's top ten tracks-- the most momentous batch in recent memory. At the top we've got DJ Khaled, who's collaborated with more of rap's A- B- and C-listers in his career than arguably anyone else, and who's accompanied by Drake.

Summer Jam Cut Short Before Future's Closing Performance Jun 6, 2016 at 03:35am
Last week's forecast was troubling, and indeed, the skies didn't give Summer Jam much of a chance today. The Festival Stage in the MetLife Stadium parking lot, set to host acts like Chance the Rapper, Tory Lanez, Desiigner, and Post Malone, was called off early in the afternoon, but HOT 97 held on dearly to the Stadium Stage, not going down without a fight. Finally, the rain ceased and restless crowds gathered in front of the stadium, which wouldn't be ready for entry until around 9PM, a few hours behind schedule.

NYC and the surrounding areas were met with some disastrous weather today, forcing the Governors Ball festival to cancel the entire day.

But just now, the music has begun on the Stadium Stage, and for now, there's still plenty to look forward to. Tune in and watch the live stream below.
