Brothers Bryan “Baby” Williams (who we now know as Birdman), age 22, and Ronald “Slim” Williams, age 24, wanted to get out of their projects and build a better life for their family and friends in Magnolia and the surrounding...

    Heat In These Streets will give you the low-down on choice rappers putting on for a specific city and advancing the sound of hip-hop at the same time.

    While Taylor Swift's 1989 takeover of the charts continues, many of our r'n'b and hip-hop artists have been pushed down. Teyana Taylor actually finds herself the highest-up, debuting at #19, with her G.O.O.D. album VII. The album made a solid enough debut, moving 16,000 copies opening week, while Azealia Banks followed further behind with her own debut album Broke With Expensive Taste. Although...

    This week something quite significant went down on the Billboard 200, albeit it's outside of the genre of hip-hop. Taylor Swift basically broke the mold and sold over 1 million copies of her new album, 1989, in turn giving her the highest sales in one week since 2002. That's twelve years ago. There is a small hip-hop connection here, because the last album that sold just over 1 million, in 2002,...

    This week we're finding several new entries in the Billboard 200, although nothing took over the #1 spot. Keyshia Cole actually comes out on top this week, debuting at #9, moving 25,000 copies opening week. Her album dropped around the same time she got in the news for assaulting a Cash Money employee, which leads us to ask, publicity stunt or nah?. Tinashe competed with Keyshia, although she...

    Prince has a crazy number of albums under his belt, and a loyal following at that. After taking a four-year break, he returned this year with not one, but two new albums. He put them out at the same time, and managed to move units on each, with each debuting within Billboard 200's top 10. While Prince's popularity may not be as high as it once was, there's still a fanbase there. It would be...
