    Timbaland caused a stir last week when he leaked out what he called the "original version" of the Rick Ross and Jay Z track he had recently produced, "Movin Bass." Apparently, Rick Ross wasn't happy about the way he handled the situation.

    Review: Rick Ross' "Hood Billionaire"

    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.

    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).

    At just 19, Tink, Timbaland's latest prodigy, is already one of hip-hop's rising stars. She's in the running for this year's Freshmen class (she made our list), and we're expecting her debut album on Tim's Moseley Music imprint later this year. Tonight (March 21), during the final Fader SXSW showcase, Timbaland told the crowd that his partnership with Tink is meant to be.

    Aaliyah is a touchy subject. Pretty much anytime her music is touched, there's an immediate uproar. Not even Drake -- who seems to be able to do no wrong in the public eye -- was shamed out of working on a posthumous Aaliyah project. Thus, when a Lifetime-sanctioned biopic on the singer was announced, it was clear that if it wasn't an absolutely flawless portrayal, there would be hell to pay.

    Dr. Dre's co-sign has affected the careers of rappers like Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar, so praise from the legendary producer is quite an honor. In a recent interview with Billboard, Dre, along with the surviving members of N.W.A. (Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella) shared his favorite emcees of the moment -- which happened to be Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Pusha T.

    If you're as big as Jay Z, you can't get away with uncredited samples, even if they appear on very brief interlude tracks. On Magna Carta Holy Grail's "Versus," which lasts for all of 51 seconds, producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz sampled Swiss musician Bruno Spoerri without giving him credit, and now them and Hov are going to have to pay up.

    On April 12, 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested in Baltimore for possession of a switchblade, though it's still not clear why he was pursued in the first place. Police claim Gray was apprehended without force, though bystanders have suggested otherwise, and video evidence shows Gray screaming while being forced into the police's van. What happened next is still being investigated, though by the time Gray arrived at the police station, he was unresponsive, unable to talk or breathe.

    Jay Z & Timbaland Expected To Testify In "Big Pimpin" Lawsuit

    Jay Z and Timbaland are headed to court over their 1999 hit, "Big Pimpin" off Jay's album Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter. The record is an iconic one, mainly because of the sample Timbaland used-- and it's that same sample that's now coming back to haunt the duo. At the time the track was recorded and released, Timbo paid EMI $100,000 for use of the Middle Eastern song "Khosara, Khosara," composed by Baligh Hamdy. EMI claimed to have the rights to the song via a deal with an Egyptian company and an agreement with Hamdy's family.

    Beyoncé's hit single "Drunk In Love" already faced a bit of controversy earlier this year when Future voiced his confusion for not being credited as one of the song's writers, and now a bit of legal drama has emerged around a sample used within. Hungarian singer Monika Miczura Juhasz, known as Mitsou, says she was "sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission” on the track.

    As is obvious from the multiple "who??" comments that still somehow show up on pretty much everything we post about Tink, many of you still need to get familiar with one of hip-hop's most talented young stars. The 19-year-old Chicago native first popped up on our radars with her pair of Winter's Diary tapes, and ever since then, she's been elevating her craft with each ensuing track.

    Although she passed away fourteen years ago at the all-too-young age of 22, Aaliyah still fervently burns like an R&B sun, atop the solar system of artists that she fuels and influences posthumously. Despite her age, her career lasted nearly a decade. Her sex appeal, style, and squad of collaborators, who are also mega-stars in their own right created the perfect storm to set pop music on a course that is still traveled by some of music’s best and brightest to this day.
