As a 17-year-old just beginning to make waves in the rap game, Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott didn't have the same life as most kids his age. He wasn't thinking about graduating high school to attend a university or enter the work force.

What most music fans don’t know is that a major record label deal is not guaranteed change in your pocket.

For over fifteen years fans of Dr. Dre awaited the follow-up to 2001. Detox was rumored to drop basically every year that followed, but was ultimately sidelined as Dre turned his attention to Eminem and 50 Cent, and later, the success of Beats headphones.
When the world was first introduced to Jaden and Willow Smith, the children of celebrity power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, they seemed pretty normal for famous kids.

Vol.
Chicago native, Dwyane Wade is selling the condo he owns in his hometown for $1.8 million. The 3900 square foot townhome has 4 beds, 3.5 bedrooms, and is located not far from domestic locations such as a Whole Foods about a mile out, and great places for entertaining like V.I.P.'s Gentleman's club less than 2 miles away.
The Oliver El Khatib-Drake-Noah "40" Shebib triumvirate dropped a quartet of bombs during Saturday's episode of OVO Sound Radio: PND's "No Feelings" feat. Travi$ Scott and Drake's "Hotline Bling (Cha Cha Remix)," "Right Hand," & "Charged Up."
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.
After months of singles, promotion and interviews, yesterday marked the release of Big Sean's hotly-anticipated third album, Dark Sky Paradise. Packing in tons of witty wordplay, Sean Don made what is probably the best album of his young career, and now comes the time to break the whole deluxe edition down in a new edition of "By The Numbers."
Drake's reign is collapsing. Let's get to it. 10) Omelly - Back To Back Freestyle (AR-AB Diss) The Meek-Drake beef has already cooled into near non-existence, but that hasn’t stopped the foot soldiers of OVO and Dreamchasers from joining in.
Where to begin? Last night saw people from nearly every corner of hip hop (and even some pop mainstays) engaging in a widespread online conflict, oddly enough kicked off by some tweets exchanged between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.
While next week should be more exciting, the last round of rap sales were pretty lacklustre. With ASAP Rocky's album dropping to number 12, it's the first week in some time with no hip hop or R&B in the top ten. The LPs we've seen selling all year are still hanging in, with Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar all continuing to sell. Meanwhile, J.
Even when a project is only tangentially connected to Eminem, it tends to sell. Em's executive-production of the soundtrack for Southpaw (as well as some exclusive material) has earned it an admirable debut at number four on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Hopsin has come in at 17 with a tally of entirely traditional sales.

The project will feature five cuts from the mixtape, and two new joints, "My Jeep" and "My Yout." Slated for an October 29th release date, the Summer Knights EP will feature 7 tracks.

Travi$ Scott has become one of the most must-see performers in rap, because of his electric stage presence and because he is always on the verge of a doing something anarchic or belligerent.

Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams founded Cash Money Records over twenty years ago. New Orleans rap collective the Hot Boys were one of Cash Money's earliest successes, which has since turned into perhaps the flashiest label of them all. In 2005, former Hot Boy Lil Wayne created his own CMR imprint, Young Money Entertainment.
It's 2015 and grime is buzzing. One of the genres leading MCs, Skepta, is releasing fire new tracks every other week, and popping up everywhere from New York City's MoMA PS1 party to Drake's OVOFest. His recent remix of Jamie XX's "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" is nothing short of 2015 pop gold.
We stumbled across Roy Wood$ innocently enough, during a daily peruse of Soundcloud. After being impressed with his "I Got" record, which melds the lines of r'n'b and rap, we skimmed through the rest of his Soundcloud, albeit, it's not too full just yet.
