Since Tyga went on a tweeting spree about his dissatisfaction with Young Money a few weeks ago, we haven't heard any updates about his label (or for that matter, album) status, but a new interview with VIBE may offer some clues.
On Monday we premiered the first look from Honey Cocaine's recently-announced mixtape, Like A Drug. The female Toronto native got the ball rolling for the mixtape with "Curve Ball" produced by DJ ASAP. Today she's decided to unleash the official mixtape cover art, as we await the tracklisting.
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.
Tyga is not happy. In a series of tweets fired off just minutes ago, the Young Money (for now) rapper said his album's "been done, and that his label is "holding [him] hostage." He repped his Last Kings brand, quoted 2Pac and responded to Mack Maine in the series of tweets, which you can view below.
In a somewhat shocking development, YG has informed us that he's not allowed to perform at two of the three upcoming Southern California dates of the ongoing "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" tour. The reason? His local police department.
Jeremih has scored yet another Gold certification with the YG-featuring "Don't Tell 'Em." The singer's fourth solo track to become certified, the single joins "Down On Me" (2x Platinum), "Birthday Sex" (1x Platinum), and "I'mma Star" (Gold) on his wall of plaques.
Back in January we saw a photo surface online of Tyga and Kanye West working together in the studio on what appeared to be new music. Well with Tyga’s new album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, right around the corner, it appears Tyga is about ready to let the world hear what the two cooked up.
The Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour is definitely all about the friendly competition between the two high profile rappers, but for the remaining dates on the tour, they've decided to recruit a third act for the show. While the setup unfortunately won't be Drake vs. Lil Wayne vs.
The gossip mill has been heavy churning out news centered around the recently-single Tyga and the youngest Jenner sister Kylie. The two have been spotted together frequently following T-Raww and Blac Chyna breaking off their relationship, and Tyga even held a birthday party for 17-year old Kylie at his home.
Isn't this something? Not only is Meek Mill in jail and his sophomore album is delayed indefinitely, but Jeezy also took a trip behind bars after getting caught with an assault rifle. He posted the $1 million bail, but the CTE suddenly got trouble on his head after pleading not guilty.
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 10 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
Ty Dolla $ign has been having a pretty huge year. He released his first retail release with the Beach House EP, showed up on plenty of hooks for artists as diverse as Lupe Fiasco and Meek Mill, and joined his new Taylor Gang buddy Wiz Khalifa on the Under The Influence tour.
The IleSoniq music festival is hitting Montreal, Quebec this month, and we're giving away tickets to the big event! The fest, which will feature performances from the likes of Juicy J, Tyga, Iggy Azalea, araabMUZIK, Mr.
Though the news of Tyga dropping out of Wiz Khalifa's ongoing "Under The Influence" tour surely made some of his fans pretty disappointed, they've now got something to look forward to as a consolation prize.
Don't underestimate those Canadian crowds. Though Edmonton, Alberta, Canada doesn't have nearly the rep that YG's native South Central L.A. has had for years, his show in the city last night proved that Edmontonian hip-hop fans still have the ability to wyle out with the best of 'em.
