    This week saw the debut of Snoop Dogg's Pharrell-helmed funk opus, which had a pretty modest opening, placing at number 14. While Tech N9ne blew us away with his top 5 debut last week, he fell considerably this cycle, moving all the way down to number 20. As for the rest of the rap releases, almost everything has been slowly descending the charts incrementally. We're hoping to see another big album over the summer to breathe some life back into the rap charts, and possibly give Drake some competition in the race to be the first platinum rap album of 2015 (or 2014 for that matter).

    Who doesn’t love Wiz and Spitta? Now they won’t be the first ones to be lauded for being complex lyricists. But guess what, that’s ok. They may not wow you with lyrically-dense bars, but they are both able to meticulously string together hypnotic records. Individually, they earned their respective fans because of their relentless work ethic and penchant for making smooth tunes.

    Wiz Khalifa was so charmed with a photo of Drake occupying his phone lockscreen that he screencapped it and tweeted it out Friday for all the world to see. Few rappers would make Drake or any other rapper besides themselves as their lockscreen background, let alone willingly share it on social media. But Wiz Khalifa is no ordinary rapper. After a handful of Wiz's curious followers inquired about the screencap, he responded that the picture "reminds [him] of prom" and "Luckily im not one of those idiots who cares what other people think."

    Quiz: Whose Baby Mama?
    May 10, 2015 at 01:40pm
    For Mother's Day we're offering up a fun quiz to see how well you know your rapper baby mamas. Rappers are prone to having multiple baby mamas, and so it can be a task to keep up with them. Not only that, but given the close-knit music industry, it's not uncommon for rappers to exchange baby mamas, or at least, take on another rapper's lady after the couple breaks up.

    Wiz Khalifa's "We Dem Boyz" was inescapable last summer, and it seems the Taylor Gang rapper may have the warmer months on lock once again. Currently sitting at number one on the Billboard charts, Khalifa has big plans for the near future, working on a joint project with Curren$y, as well as getting ready to release what sounds like a pretty massive collab with PARTYNEXTDOOR.

    If you weren't busy watching Floyd Mayweather extend his undefeated streak to 48-0, you could've caught Wiz Khalifa making his Saturday Night Live debut last night. Wiz took center stage and was joined by pop singer Charlie Puth on piano, as the duo performed their "Furious 7" single "See You Again," which currently sits atop the charts for the third consecutive week.

    By now, you all don't need an introduction to Amber Rose. Like it or not, she's a big deal in hip-hop. The former stripper turned video girl first caught the eye of Kanye West in Ludacris' "What Them Girls Like" video, and the two soon began a relationship that lasted almost two years. After 'Ye, she moved on to Wiz Khalifa, whom she married two years later. Somehow between marriage and a kid, Rose continued to cement herself as one of the baddest bitches in hip-hop.

    Rappers Share Their Smoking Preferences For 4/20

    Today may not be a government-mandated holiday, but for those who advocate a green lifestyle, it's just as important as any other statutory holiday. Rap music has a special niche for all the weed smokers out there, however it's really transcended that niche genre and has become pretty common-place. Every other song has a reference (or three) about lighting up/rolling up/smoking up. It's safe to say we don't need a reason to smoke, but hey, we'll take one.

    This week marks the end of an era, with Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" unseating the seemingly invincible "Uptown Funk". The success of Khalifa's record was seen in album sales as well with Furious 7 moving up to the top spot on the Billboard 200. This week saw no big debuts, and we watched Wale and Ludacris fall 10-plus spots following their opening weeks last cycle. Take a look at the full breakdown below.

    Barter 6. Cherry Bomb. OMEEKA. This week was filled with activity in the hip hop world, and as usual, a lot of it spilled onto Twitter. We saw a little bit of non-confrontational beef, some trolling and some self-congratulatory behavior-- so it was a pretty standard week, all in in all.  Read on to get the funniest, most noteworthy tweets of the week, and let us know what we missed in the comments section.

    We're seeing a lot of Spotify records being broken these days, which says more about the prevalence of streaming than anything, but while Drake and Kendrick's recent triumphs could be seen from a mile away, Wiz Khalifa's new records are rather surprising. "See You Again," which makes the jump to number one on Billboard's Hot 100 this week (unseating the unfuckwithable "Uptown Funk"), made its way there largely through streaming, setting the record for most streams in day (4.2 million) and most streams in a week (21.9 million from April 6th and April 12th).

    Wiz Khalifa has been putting out music since 2005, but it wasn't until 2010 that he had his major breakthrough with Kush & OJ, a mixtape that celebrates its fifth anniversary today. In an interview with MTV, Wiz spoke of the mixtape being viewed as "his classic," a title he had yearned for since getting into rap.

    Review: Curren$y "Pilot Talk III"
    Apr 10, 2015 at 04:52pm
    After a near-decade of hustling, Curren$y has finally landed his prominent role in the rap scene. It wasn’t easy work, but anyone who has watched the New Orleans-native go from Lil Wayne’s sidekick to stoner rap’s most consistent contributor will tell you that much. For his third Pilot Talk album, Curren$y didn’t reinvent the wheel, but he definitely refined it. His vision is clearer now more than ever: funny rhymes + some swaggy braggadocio + luxurious production = success. It also equates to a pleasant listen each time.
