    If you're a Gunplay fan, you've been trained to expect disappointment in all things Living Legend-related at this point, as the Florida rapper's debut album has experienced delay after delay over the years. A few weeks, ago though, a bright spot appeared on the horizon in the form of "WuzHaninDoe," a YG-assisted single that seemed to herald an impending album rollout.

    Who Had The Better Verse: Wale Vs. Meek Mill

    Rick Ross changed the landscape of rap when he forged his indomitable empire Maybach Music Group. His new signees, Wale and Meek Mill, were unproven commodities who simply needed a chance to thrive and eclipse expectations. Under Ross' tutelage, both artists have sculpted strong careers and have expanded their fanbases exponentially. Wale’s poetic ambiance fused with Meek’s rugged and street demeanor is what makes MMG go. When they’re both on a track, you’re almost guaranteed nothing but energy and fiery bars.

    Seven years ago, a rapper from Washington D.C. captured the nation's attention with a mixtape based on one of the most successful sitcoms of all-time. In just under two weeks, Wale will be releasing the long-awaited album companion to that Seinfeld-inspired Mixtape About Nothing, but the road he's traveled between '08 and 2015 isn't what you'd expect from his hipster-friendly, underground beginnings.

    Today, Omarion is letting people everywhere listen in on his Sex Playlist. Although we don't know for sure if he's tested it out in its literal sense, the album (his first as an MMG signee) is sensual in nature. Check out the playlist -- with producers to the right of the songs -- below, and stream the project below that, via Spotify.

    Releasing two full length albums in one year is a rare feat most rappers will never accomplish, but in a sense, it's really nothing new for Rick Ross, who yesterday released Hood Billionaire, his second solo album of the year. The rapper has been dropping albums, along with mixtapes that have been considered to be as good as albums, within months of each other for years now. His latest album, however, isn’t a fitting follow-up to his sixth solo release, Mastermind, which hit retailers in March of this year.

    Nine months of 2014 have come and gone with absolutely no news pertaining to Living Legend, Gunplay's long-awaited debut album. Today, we receive some consolation in the form of a mixtape announcement.  Gunplay, as the mixtape is set to be titled, is set to arrive in just two days, on Wednesday, October 8th. Tomorrow, the MMG rapper will release a track from the tape called "Jumping Off Da Beam," which will also feature N.O.R.E. he tweeted about the track today:

    Right now, we don't know exactly when Meek Mill will be freed from jail (where he's serving time for a probation violation), but at least the MMG rapper looks happy in new pictures shared on Twitter by Rick Ross. Yesterday, Meek's label boss posted two photos of Meek in the clink, adding that the Philly MC was "almost at the Door." View both tweets below, and photos in the gallery above.

    With Wale attracting lots of #UNOTMMG hate in the wake of Meek Mill's comments about him a few months ago, it appears the DMV rapper has been ousted from another club: Roc Nation. Signed to Jay Z's management company since 2009, Mr. Folarin left after his manager, Rich Kleiman, decided to focus on the company's relatively new sports department.

    Master P Admits Fat Trel Is Better Off With Maybach Music Group

     When Fat Trel, Master P, and Alley Boy dropped The New World Order mix as the Hip Hop trio, Louie V Mob, it seemed all but inevitable that Fat Trel would sign to Master P's No Limit label. Instead, just five months later Fat Trel aligned himself with Maybach Music Group. Master P doesn't sound too hurt though (either that or he is extremely hurt, depending on how you want to interpret his words).

    In the last two years between his last album and now, Rick Ross has been through a lot, including surviving a targeted hit on his life. Critics bashed God Forgives, I Don’t and many wondered if Ross had peaked too soon and lost his touch. After numerous setbacks and delays, the bawse is back with his sixth album to prove that he’s a man with nine lives and a rapper with hits for days.

    Rick Ross is attending the Sundance Film Festival this weekend, and has taken to Twitter (as he is wont to do) to announce potential film collaborations with author, artist manager and advertising / record executive Steve Stoute.  Stoute has worked with many rappers throughout his career, including Jay Z, Nas, Eminem and Eve during his time with Sony Music and Interscope. Last night, Ross tweeted a photo of the two of them with a caption that read "at Sundance discussing Maybach Films with Steve Stoute".
