    10 Rapper-Hosted Reality Shows We'd Like To See
    Apr 15, 2015 at 12:07pm
    Over the 20 or so years they've coexisted, rappers and reality TV have had a pretty great relationship. "Flavor of Love" is still one of the most popular reality programs of all-time, more people know Xzibit for "Pimp My Ride" than his appearances on Dr. Dre's 2001 (and even less for his solo music), and even short-lived flops like Three 6 Mafia's "Adventures In Hollyhood" still attracted cult followings.

    Charts Don't Lie: April 11

    This week is an exciting not only due to a lot of movement in the chart, but the fact that four rap albums take up the top spots on the Billboard 200. Yes, one happens to be a soundtrack, but seeing that the tracklist is made up almost entirely of hip-hop and RnB, it's hard to see it any other way. This also happens to be the first week since it's release that Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly hasn't occupied the number one spot, being ousted by Wale's The Album About Nothing.

    Last week's big releases came from Wale and Ludacris, though projections predicted that neither artist would hit the 100k mark. The final numbers are now in, and as we were warned, both come in shy of six figures.

    HOT 97 revealed it's full Summer Jam lineup last week, so we knew it was only a matter of time before POWER 106, L.A's dominant station, fired back with it's annual POWERHOUSE lineup. Like HOT 97's bill, the event is not shy on big names, pulling a rare headlining spot from Kanye West, as well as support from Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign, Nipsey Hussle, Tinashe, and more.

    Director John Singleton Says Ja Rule Could've Had Ludacris' Role In The "Fast And Furious" Films

    If you think back 14 years ago to the first "Fast And The Furious" film, you'll remember that Ja Rule had a role as a driver named Edwin. Go forward to 2003's sequel, "2 Fast 2 Furious," though, and Ja was nowhere to be found, with Ludacris taking his place as the film's resident rapper/actor. John Singleton, director of the first two films, has now revealed that Ja passed on the role of Tej (an expanded version of the Edwin role) in the second film, leading to him approaching Luda for the role.

    In many ways, the early 2000s belonged to Ludacris. Within that time, the rapper was able to cross multiple platforms, making palatable music for varying tastes tinged with his trademark Dirty South sound.  He would drop cheeky hit after cheeky hit, with a self serious flow delivered through a cheshire grin - and we all loved him for it. That was until he decided to allow his acting career to gradually eclipse his musical efforts over the last half decade.

    Earlier this week, we saw the release of two highly anticipated albums, Ludacris’ Ludaversal & Wale’s The Album About Nothing. While it feels like Ludacris has been much more active in the promo game this week, that may not directly correlate to albums sales however. So who will sell more in the opening week?

    Ludacris has been everywhere this week, visiting just about every radio station & media publication out there to promote his new album Ludaversal and upcoming film "Fast & Furious 7" (which drops Friday). Apparently that wasn’t enough for the ATL veteran though as he also graces the cover of Spring's 2015 issue of The Source Magazine. And not just one cover either, Luda has two separate covers that just began hitting newsstands this week.

    Punchlines are one of the most effective tools in hip-hop, and throughout his career, Ludacris has proved himself a master of them. While perfectly capable of turning his lyrics to more serious subjects (peep "Runaway" for that), Luda has become known for his ability to perfectly set up a joke with a preceding line and then knock it down with one witty bar.

    North Carolina's Patrick Douthit isn't like most hip-hop stars. He's uninterested with chains, fame, cars, clothes and objectifying women. He's concerned with honoring classic soul music through his sample-based hip-hop beats. That has been enough to catch the attention of Jay Z, Beyonce, De La Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Erykah Badu and many more.

    The sound of wedding bells is in the future for Ludacris. On Friday, he and his longtime girlfriend, Eudoxie Agnan, officially got engaged. While on a private plane to Costa Rica, Luda popped the big question in front of some of their celebrity friends, including Monica and Shannon Brown, LeToya Luckett, and Marco Andretti. As part of his #MileHighProposal, Luda had the words “Eudoxie will you marry me” painted on to the grass, and when the planed was ascending he told her to look out the window.
