Rick Ross added some new ink to his face recently, as we've already concluded this is a rapper rite of passage. Although we already saw Rozay ink "Rich Forever" on his chin last year, he's stepped it up a notch in 2015 by getting not one, but seven new face tattoos. 
Near Extinction: The Platinum Hip-Hop Album
Near Extinction: The Platinum Hip-Hop Album Dec 31, 2014 at 08:42am
Back in October, many industry insiders were surprised by the early sales estimates for T.I.'s most recent album, Paperwork. After a day of sales, forecasts had the album selling roughly 70,000 units in its opening week. The self-proclaimed King of the South, who in his prime would easily do upwards of 400,000 copies sold in his opening weeks had officially fallen from grace and the dismal first week record sales were an obvious indicator. An array of reasons can be attributed to the unfortunate reality that almost no one in hip hop is selling records.

Rick Ross & MMG Take Shots At Timbaland's Mosley Music Group Logo Dec 8, 2014 at 10:09am
We know that Rick Ross wasn't the most pleased when Timbaland decided to let us hear an alternate version of "Movin' Bass," which heavily featured his artist Tink (and was coincidentally much better than the version that landed on Rozay's album).

Mastermind Vs. Hood Billionaire Dec 3, 2014 at 05:14pm
Compared to Gucci Mane's onslaught of projects in 2014, Rick Ross releasing two albums in one year may not seem too impressive. However, the fact of the matter is this: Rick Ross is the first major-label rap artist to release two studio albums in one year since 2010, when Lil Wayne released Rebirth and I Am Not A Human Being, respectively. It is no easy feat, especially considering how hesitant record labels are nowadays to release new music.

Today, Omarion is letting people everywhere listen in on his Sex Playlist.

Samples Of The Week: November 27
Samples Of The Week: November 27 Nov 29, 2014 at 01:56pm
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, see who Rick Ross, Boldy James and Azealia Banks sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

Review: Rick Ross' "Hood Billionaire"
Review: Rick Ross' "Hood Billionaire" Nov 25, 2014 at 12:07pm
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.

If you've been anywhere on the internet in the past month, you may have come across a now legendary vine of Rick Ross giving a shout out to "all the pear". The rapper has recently lost a ton of weight on his self-described "Ross-fit" diet, and was simply describing the benefits of his lifestyle change in the Tim Westwood interview. The quote has become quite a sensation, to the point that Ross' Instagram comment section has been berated by pear emojis.

When Rick Ross announced his second album of 2014, Hood Billionaire, just nine weeks ago, he had many people wondering whether he'd be able to rush out a project so quickly during a year that's seen more than its fair share of album delays and push-backs. Well, now that it's available for streaming, Hood Billionaire seems like it truly is locked in for a November 24th release date.
