Lil Wayne and Christina Milian's relationship isn't exactly a secret, but both parties turn pretty coy when asked about it. What Milian won't say publicly is pronounced loud and clear by here new tattoo -- a declaration of her love for Weezy.

Quiz: Whose Baby Mama? May 10, 2015 at 01:40pm
For Mother's Day we're offering up a fun quiz to see how well you know your rapper baby mamas. Rappers are prone to having multiple baby mamas, and so it can be a task to keep up with them.

Even though Tech N9ne has spent years cranking out a series of collaboration albums, he couldn’t resist inviting his (wildly talented) rapping friends to join in on the fun on his latest album, Special Effects.

Tech N9ne, who has accrued nearly three decades in the rap-game, has made a career out of dancing between the mainstream and underground universes.

"Barter 6" Producer Wheezy Wants To Work With Lil Wayne May 2, 2015 at 05:03pm
One of the biggest surprises of Young Thug's Barter 6 was the appearance of a new producer: Wheezy, who produced twice as many tracks on the album (eight) as Thugga's longtime producer London on da Track.
