Floyd Mayweather, according to Vegas Gambling Stream, has bet a whopping 5.9 million dollars on the Heat to win game 7 against the Indiana Pacers tonight. **ALERT** Good source from my #HeavyHitters Vegas crew alerted me that Floyd Mayweather has laid over $5,900,000 on Heat -7 tonight in Vegas
Whew! We got a lot of great music in the past week. Miguel's WILDHEART, Vince Staples' Summertime '06, King Los' God, Money, War, Meek Mill's Dreams Worth More Than Money, Tory Lanez's Cruel Intentions, Gucci Mane's Trapology, a pair of dope tapes from Problem, and too many dope tracks to count.
Even if you don't recognize his name, you can't miss TM88. His beats under the 808 Mafia umbrella are unavoidable at this point, first fueling the South's recent reinvention of trap music, then appearing on projects by everyone from Meek Mill to Machine Gun Kelly.
When "Harlem Shake" played soundtrack to thousands of viral videos, Harry Rodrigues was just as surprised as the rest of us. He hadn't even cleared the samples to monetize the track, he was merely making some dance music in hopes to move bodies in the club.
Holy beef. This week saw arguably more online clashes in the rap game than any other week in the past five years, with Nicki Minaj v. Taylor Swift, Meek Mill v. Drake, Boi-1da v. OG Maco, Ghostface Killah v. Action Bronson, and Bruno Mars v. Ed Sheeran (lol) all clashing. Those dominated the headlines and Twitter alike, so this week's edition of 140 Bars features some of the spillover.
Does social media inherently make everyone more petty? That's the question that this edition of "140 Bars" begs, what with "beef" translating to snarky subs more and more these days. With a few exceptions-- all coming from the more successful artists on this list-- this week's tweets are salty, so better hope you're hydrated.
Last week, Pro Era released the triumphant sequel to their debut mixtape, 2012's The Secc$ Tap.e. The new tape, showcasing tracks from up-and-comers like Dessy Hinds, Rokamouth and Nyck Caution as well as the crew's more established stars (Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight), proves that Pro Era is one of the deepest crews in the game right now.
We know you're probably sick of all the year-end lists from last year, but we're already in the second month of 2015, and we're hypothesizing who will get their big break in the coming months. This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram.
Drugs are everywhere in hip-hop. Whether they're mentioned on the radio, seen in music videos, or smuggled into concerts, drugs are pretty much unavoidable in the genre. Weed, lean, pills, coke, booze, shrooms, you name it, dope's not to hard to find. Many rappers, like Juicy J or Lil Wayne, have made it clear in their music that they love getting fucked up.
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.
This week's edition of Staff Picks seems to be (accidentally) OVO themed, like a light/curated version of OVO Radio. Drizzy dominated this week, dropping two diss records (back to back), to be followed up by Meek's own attempt at a diss track last night. "Wanna Know" just isn't cutting it though, and Drake is coming out the winner, if he wasn't already.
We saw some wacky outfits last night at the VMAs, but none (well, maybe Miley Cyrus') top Riff Raff and 2 Chainz choices. Between snakeskin pants, pink shoes, and all over patterns head to toe, its hard to pick a winner for who wore it worst.Click through to see both outfits, and decide using our "cop or not" rating.
After being very public about their affection for each other, it appears Andre Drummond and Jennette McCurdy are an actual “item” or whatever you’d like to call it, now. The two hung out last week after exchanging flirty messages on Twitter. They enjoyed it so much they went to Disneyland together afterwards, with Dre posting various Vines, and pics from the outing. Now TMZ caught up wit
NBA 2K14 continue to impress with their Next Gen footage.
We are in the midst of a mini-Nina Simone revival. Netflix recently released a documentary on the singer's life called "What Happened, Miss Simone?" and Nina Revisited...A Tribute to Nina Simone, featuring covers from Lauryn Hill, Jazmine Sullivan, Common, Usher, Mary J. Blige, and more, might change the compilation album game forever when it drops on July 10.
With voting happening today all around the United Stated, celebrities and musicians have been outspoken on who they're supporting in order to garner more votes for their Presidential candidate.
Twas a great week in the hip hop sector of Instagram, as we got some quality posts from artists across the spectrum. Snoop Dogg shared his highlight reel from the All-Star Celebrity Softball game, Travis Scott rode a horse, DJ Khaled took the ESPYs by storm, and Tinashe looked fine as hell. And much more! Check the full rundown after tha jump. 28 Grams is back son!!
Rappers are storytellers of the modern age. The media often misunderstands these narrators of society, but future generations will recognize them as windows into the past. Truly talented rappers have the ability to connect with people through their words, which may or may not be written down prior to the stage of recording.
The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011. March, August and December each held a release date for this dude who was mixing sounds of electronica, hip-hop, dubstep, R&B, downtempo and soul in a way that had never been done before.Well, it worked.
Travi$ Scott's last mixtape, one of the most talked about of last year, as well as his nationwide tour with Young Thug, which, too, has created quite a stir, were both preludes to Rodeo, the long-awaited debut album. The 23-year-old Houston rapper/producer, mentored by Kanye West and T.I., has collaborated with, produced for, and written hits for the best in the business.
I want to like the new Public Enemy record. I really do.
In the world of rap, “raunchy music video” is almost always code for “ass-shaking fiesta.” Thus, when narrowing down this list from 30+ videos to 10, I was forced to take multiple criteria into consideration. Is the song any good? Was it popular?
Visibility is the number one law of rap-- if they can’t see/hear/feel you, you don’t actually exist for a lot of people. But the main concern is how do you keep them interested? Tyga is one of those artists who has been cursed with a struggle between visibility and interest.
