We got a wealth of new music last Friday, and, indeed, Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, and Jeremih all added tracks off their new albums to this week's Top 10. Lyrically-minded fans are still reeling from the week before, though, when Kendrick and Cole exchanged remixes. Both "Black Friday" tracks comfortably stuck around for this week's Top 10. 
Kid Cudi Is Upset His Album Was Labeled "Hip-Hop" On iTunes
Kid Cudi Is Upset His Album Was Labeled "Hip-Hop" On iTunes Dec 5, 2015 at 03:40pm
Kid Cudi may have began his career in hip-hop, but he's always made sure to push the boundaries of the genre. Every release since his debut has found Cudder straying further away from rap, and with the release of Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven, he's distancing himself from the "hip-hop" title entirely. Reporting to Twitter yesterday, Cudi revealed that the iTunes version of the album was missing a digital booklet due to some "fuck head" messing up, but that wasn't his only gripe with the release.

We're only one day into the sales week, but we already have an idea of what the final numbers will be looking like. With Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, and G-Eazy going head-to-head, it was sure to be an interesting one, and looking at the estimations, it's should be a surprising turnout.

#TBT: Mixtape Kid Cudi Dec 3, 2015 at 01:55pm
Kid Cudi has a record coming out tomorrow called Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven, and apparently it's almost completely void of rap music. While we obviously respect Cudi's artistic decision to do whatever the fuck he desires, we like to remember Cudi back in his mixtape prime. He was a brainy oddball, known for taking non-rap sounds and bringing them into the hip hop world. His debut mixtape, 2008's A Kid Named Cudi, was heralded for doing just that.

Lupe Fiasco Threatens Kid Cudi, Says He's Done With The Beef At The Same Show Nov 29, 2015 at 08:13pm
Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi have had their differences in the past, and while we haven't heard much about the feud from either party over the last few months, there hasn't been a public truce. Lupe brought his issues with Cudi up again during a show in Milwaukee this weekend, but his two statements about the rapper gave some very mixed messages.It's not clear which came first, but Lupe spit a verse about Cudder, as well as giving a brief speech on the beef, but each gave us a very different impression on where Fiasco stands.

Kid Cudi let us hear some new joints off his upcoming album, Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven (it appears he's switched up the "to" for a number two), all of which received a very lukewarm if not cold reception on the site ("Wedding Tux" and "Judgemental Cunt").

This weekend, Kanye West performed two back to back shows, both live renditions of his 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak. During both nights, 'Ye brought out a few of the album's original collaborators, including Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson, and Jeezy. There was an elaborate stage curated just for the show, featuring a step pyramid beneath a giant color-changing moon-like ball. There was also a full orchestral string section, an electronic backing band (with Mike Dean on guitar), and a full cast of costumed dancers and performance artists.

Kanye West Brings Out Jeezy & Kid Cudi For "808s & Heartbreak" Show, Experiences Technical Difficulties Sep 26, 2015 at 11:25am
Last night (Sept. 25), Kanye West performed 1 of 2 "808s & Heartbreak" shows at the Hollywood Bowl. It's been nearly 7 years since 'Ye released his 4th studio album, which is now hailed as one of the most game-changing hip-hop releases of the past decade. For his back to back shows in L.A., West wanted to perform the album front-to-back. He attempted to do just that on night 1, though, unfortunately, the performance proceeded more as a "dress rehearsal" than a seamless rendition of the album.

Travi$ Scott has been a huge supporter of Kid Cudi over the years, and with Rodeo just days away, Cudi thought it was about time to repay him by giving the album a big-time plug on Twitter. "Theres only one young man within the industry whos been a loyal dedicated fan & supporter of mine since day 1, its time we support him too," he wrote.

Although it doesn’t yet have a release date, Kid Cudi’s Speedin’ Bullet To Heaven seems like it could arrive any day now. Back on the Fourth of July, Cudder said the album was 98% done, and with the first single (“Confused”) dropping last week, we’re now officially in #CudderSeason. Details on the album are scarce thus far, but the Cleveland MC has said that it’ll be largely based around live instrumentation and won’t have any featured vocalists.
