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.

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.

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.
