Drake has the most number one songs on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and we've decided to count them all done, starting from the classic "Best I Ever Had."
Drake's "Energy" music video just hit Apple Music, giving them an exclusive that'll further propel them ahead of their competitor TIDAL. On top of the "Energy" visuals, off the much-lauded If You're Reading This It's Too Late, Drizzy unleashed another exclusive, a collaboration with Majid Jordan, through Beats 1.
On Christmas Day, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat will be taking on Kobe and the Lakers. The NBA stars always break out a Christmas inspired sneaker on this day that has the sneaker community giddy with excitement. The first to unveil their Christmas surprise is Li-Ning with its Way of Wade "Christmas." This frog looking green upper is actually considered a stingray-inspired print.
The world of hip-hop is affiliated with glamour, partying, money and fun! It’s no wonder why so many rappers flock to the industry each year. But only the rappers that make it big get to enjoy these activities. There are tons of rappers in the game but only a select few make it stardom, to the point where everyone knows their names.
In a blow to sneakerheads everywhere, word on the streets is the Black/Cement Air Jordan 3 '88 will NOT be releasing. That type of news is too diabolical, even for a Monday. After the White/Cement 3 '88 released it was almost a certainty amongst the sneaker community that the black version would also be retro'd.
It’s been five years since the original Pilot Talk instalment and three years between studio releases for New Orleans rapper Curren$y.
Even though there have been countless alleged sources verifying that Lamar Odom is using hard drugs like crack, he is maintaining that he's not. Looking to keep his NBA career in tact, Odom has been speaking to several league executives about a possible contract.
With school back in session, we've decided to take a look at some of the rappers with college educations. Ashlee Ray goes through the list of both graduates, and College Dropouts in her latest video. Some of them may surprise you! Check it out below.
LeBron James had the sneaker community buzzing last night when he laced up a beaming pair of Fairfax LeBron 11s in LA. His sneaker stylings were fitting considering the Heat were in LA, which is where the famous HS basketball program is located. Most notably, LeBron kept the 11s on for the entire game.
50 Cent has been through so much beef, you could probably dedicate a book to the fights he has picked. Throughout his career, he has never been shy to give his honest opinion about fellow rappers. He has mastered the art of the diss song and pretty much wears the crown for being the king at feuding. His moves to out battle his rivals have been smart, conniving and sometimes just plain deep.
The final week of sales recorded from Tuesday happened last week, and this week's numbers are a weird transitional phase, tacking on a couple of days to bring them around to Friday, resulting in a one-time only 11-day tally. Thus, the results for this cycle are simply beefed up numbers from last week. For the most part, everyone pretty much stays in there place.
Rappers definitely like to live an extravagant lifestyle, at least, they like to talk about living an extravagant lifestyle. While the average rapper doesn't have several millions to drop on a crib, the rappers on this list have put in a lot of work and racked up a lot of bills because of it. They're REALLY living that lifestyle.
HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed.
Yesterday, we learned that Kanye West would be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel to one of Ben Stiller's best-loved movies: "Zoolander." It won't be the first time Mr. West has shown up in a sequel that Will Ferrell is involved with, and he won't be the first rapper to make a cameo in a "Zoolander" film either (Lil Kim shows up very briefly in the original).
Logic has come a long way since he dropped his first Frank Sinatra-inspired mixtape, Young, Broke & Infamous, four years ago. Off the strength of that tape and the three others that followed it, he steady built up his fanbase, utilizing social media and the blogosphere to its fullest.
Few names have taken the hip-hop world by storm like ILoveMakonnen has in the last few months. A buzz-worthy mixtape artist came to mainstream fame after signing to Drake's OVO Sound label, along with having Drizzy blessing his single "Tuesday" with a verse. ILoveMakonnen's career hasn't been the same since, and Tuesdays at the club have been going up ever since.
On March 15, 2011, Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, who we know better as Nate Dogg, passed away from complications of multiple strokes. He left behind a body of work that includes the best hooks rap has ever seen.
Besides V-Day, there is another reason we decided to create this list. Yup, we're talking about that "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap. Translation: this track is a shout-out to your bomb ass female. Straight out of New Jersey, Fetty touches on the three most important things in life: money, your crib, and your girl. In fact, this applies to almost every gangsta rapper out there.
Drawing on inspiration from the LeBron X "Championship Pack," District Customs came up with this dope LeBron 9 "Two Time Champs." Using the black/gold LeBron 9 PS Elite as its base, the "Two Time Champs" version sports a sweet graphic print that was seen on the LeBron X low in the "Championship Pack." The custom also features a sole swap to further resemble the LeBron X low.
LeBron James and Kevin Durant went head to head last night on the court, and both busted out new colorways of their signature sneakers.
Floyd Mayweather is a boxing icon who knows a thing or two about defending titles, and he's also a big fan of the Miami Heat. If you recall he partied with LeBron James in Las Vegas for a celebration following the Heat's back-to-back championship.
Gucci Mane has released nine projects this year. We don't have to check-- that's more than any other rapper. He also happens to be in prison. Last year, he released 14 projects from the pen, making a cool $1.3 million, and he's on pace to topple those numbers this year.
What's that? Hip hop without the drums? Does that exist? Is it even possible?
Gucci Mane has been sculpting talent, and promoting new artists since the beginning his career, but it's only over the last couple of years that he's been recognized as a great A&R.
