Meek Mill & Nicki Minaj Blow $40,000 At The Strip Club
Nicki Minaj is quite a catch. Not only is she one of the best rappers in the game, she's also totally down to hit the strip club (though "I Endorse These Strippers" should have made you well aware of both those facts already). Meek Mill and Nicki hit up V Live Houston over the weekend, and made sure to "Throw Sum Mo" to the dancers, reportedly going through close to $40,000.
Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Perform, Kiss For The Crowd At Pinkprint Tour Kickoff
Nicki Minaj already took her Pinkprint tour through the UK, but it's looking like the North American leg will be a much more rap-oriented affair.

Since the defection and lawsuit of former right-hand man Lil Wayne at the top of 2015, Birdman has been taking one L after another.

Let's look back at the first half of 2015 through the lens of Birdman-related fiascos.

Without a doubt, the Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown-assisted "All Eyes On You" is the poppiest track on Meek Mill's recently released Dreams Worth More Than Money, so it makes total sense that it's been picked as the album's second single (preceded by "Check"). In addition to increased radio play, this will also entail a music video, the production of which seems to be underway right now. Nicki just took to Instagram to share a few behind the scenes flicks of the shoot.

Charts Don't Lie: June 27
While next week should be more exciting, the last round of rap sales were pretty lacklustre. With ASAP Rocky's album dropping to number 12, it's the first week in some time with no hip hop or R&B in the top ten.
