    Last year Lollapalooza had a headliner that would many most hip-hop fans weak at the knees, with both OutKast and Eminem on the bill. This year they do a 180, with absolutely no hip-hop headliner, although there are rap artists scattered throughout the three-day festival.

    Young Thug's recent on-stage comments were misinterpreted as a diss toward his Rich Gang collaborator, Rich Homie Quan, but his tour mate's remarks about Trey Songz leave little to the imagination. Travi$ Scott decided to end a song performance in Chicago with the declaration, "Fuck Trey Songz!" earlier this week. While his motive is still unclear, some members of Trey's hometown crowd weren't too impressed, as footage of some guys surrounding Scott and Thug's bus after a show in Virginia has made its way online.

    Travi$ Scott is currently winding down his "Rodeo Tour" alongside Young Thug. The inspiration for the tour comes from actual Texas rodeos--soundtracked by two of the wildest rappers in the game. And Travi$ expects the crowd to be all the way turnt up. During a recent stop in Chicago, Travi$ addressed a particularly lethargic crowd, saying he felt like he was "at a motherfuckin' J. Cole concert or a Chance the Rapper type of concert." Needless to say, both Cole and Chance fans took offense to the comments.

    Travi$ Scott's shows are known to get pretty rough, but the rapper's tour stop in Tucson, Arizona last night got a little more physical than usual. Scott, who's known to stage dive pretty regularly, was amongst the crowd when a fight broke out between him and a fan. While the video is extremely shaky, punches seem to be being thrown from both parties, and reports are suggesting that the brawl began when the fan attempted to snatch Scott's chain.

    What's the most Travi$ Scott way to announce an album release? Dropping hints in an interview with a fashion magazine. That's exactly what the fashion-forward MC/producer has done today, as a publication called CR Fashion Book now holds the answers to a tentative Rodeo release month. According to Scott himself, his debut album will be out in March. He also explained the motivation behind the title:

    While we usually focus on American hip-hop music here at HNHH, we thought it would be nice to shed the spotlight on some non-American rappers for once. From Spain to Australia, cool rap music definitely exists in other countries.   We started with some English rappers to wet your palate before diving in to some underground Korean hip-hop and even German hip-hop. We touched on Hilltop Hoods from Australia who lay down some '90s sounds, and the Korean Keith Ape, who channels OG Maco.

    If you're feeling sluggish this Wednesday morning, well, Remix Fix probably won't help with that (and sorry we're a day late). This week we take things the chopped and screwed direction, with a chopped up remix of Travi$ Scott's already-melancholic "Drugs You Should Try It."

    Travi$ Scott's free album Days Before Rodeo took us by surprise but quickly became a fan-favorite. The banger-packed project solidified Travi$ Scott's position within the rap game, if it even needed solidifying in the first place. The Kanye West-mentored MC recently spoke with GQ magazine about Days Before Rodeo, the debut album to follow it, Kanye West's upcoming album and more. Check out excerpts from the interview below.

    Is "808s & Heartbreak" Kanye West's Most Influential Album?
    Aug 30, 2014 at 02:58 PM
    In 2014, it's no secret that where Kanye West goes, the rest of hip-hop follows. Starting with him and Just Blaze making "chipmunk soul" a hot sound in Roc-A-Fella's prime, Mr. West's musical output has always been a pretty good gauge of where hip-hop is headed, whether it be his early mantra of having a "Benz and a backpack" or his drill-invigorating remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like." But in a career filled with moments of trendsetting and breaking the mold, one era and album stand out as far more influential and forward-thinking than anything West's ever done.

    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, we cover a wacky batch of samples from Action Bronson, Yelawolf and Travi$ Scott. This is the weirdest edition of Samples Of The Week yet.

    With backing from both Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music and T.I.'s Hustle Gang, Travi$ Scott appears to have the game figured out. The rapper-slash-producer seems to be equally talented at both endeavors, and as he curates his often hard-hitting sound, he's also been flagged as one of the more fashion-forward MCs.

    Chief Keef paid tribute to the perma-turn up life with "Hate Being Sober", but it seems that the more seasoned party enthusiast, Juicy J has one-upped Sosa, with the announcement of his "Never Sober" tour. Details are still scarce on dates and locations for the upcoming stint, but Juicy did confirm that Travi$ Scott would be joining him on tour in a recent tweet.
