T-Pain Says He's Not Making A "Comeback," Explains Aaliyah Collaboration Mar 27, 2015 at 03:29 PM 6,913 Views
T-Pain dropped his brand new mixtape The Iron Way earlier today, but don't call it a comeback. Speaking with HNHH recently, the auto-tune slinging singer spoke of the way the industry can frame a return from a hiatus as something it's not."The industry is that way. It's out of sight, out of mind," he explained. "It's not really a thing where you can just be great, and just be great forever.
South Beach, Miami. A popular partying destination for anyone with money to blow, rappers included. Situated inside the famous Fontainebleau Hotel, LIV has emerged as Miami's premiere club for the rich and famous. When celebrities get together, though, it's not always fun and games, even with the paparazzi looming outside.
Stream OG Maco's "I Made This Shit Before 'U Guessed It'" Compilation Mar 27, 2015 at 02:00 PM 3,789 Views
As OG Maco has proven time and time again since last Fall, he's much deeper than "U Guessed It." His ensuing EPs have showcased a lot of versatility, and his latest drop continues to do so with some tracks made before that single took off. The OGG rapper just dropped five tracks on his SoundCloud in a compilation bluntly titled I Made This Shit Before "U Guessed It".
Tragic news from Lil Durk's camp today. The rapper's manager, OTF Chino, was shot and killed last night outside of a restaurant in Chicago's Avalon Park. The Tribune reports that two others were wounded in the shooting, which took place at 1:50 AM Friday morning. A gunman reportedly fired multiple shots into Chino's vehicle, which he was sitting in at the time.

Kendrick Lamar Has The First No. 1 Album Ever With "Pimp" In Its Title Mar 27, 2015 at 02:19 AM 18,082 Views
Kendrick Lamar’s sophomore album, To Pimp A Butterfly, has just set another record… kinda. According to Billboard, To Pimp A Butterfly is the first album with “pimp” in its title to be No. 1 on the charts. Previously, the highest charting album was Pimpalation by Pimp C, which landed him a No. 3 spot in 2006.
He maybe a little later than most, but Lil Wayne has finally joined Instagram. Taking to twitter to the other day, Weezy announced that he would be joining the popular social media outlet, and tonight he follows that up with his first official post. With a caption dubbed “Wooooop”, Tune can be seen posted up with a Red Bull in hand and dyed dreads alongside a couple homies.
The Roots are the greatest hip hop band of all time, hands down. From the streets of Philadelphia to late night TV, they have conquered each and every stage they've graced over their twenty-eighty year career. Questlove is a cultural icon, an authority on hip hop, accomplished author, a real-deal DJ, and elite drummer.
While earlier this week it seemed that things were going south for online streetwear distributor Karmaloop, they may have found a way out of their imminent bankruptcy.

Kendrick Lamar Will Never Release The Song From His Colbert Performance Mar 26, 2015 at 06:23 PM 31,558 Views
Back in December, when we knew very little about Kendrick Lamar's follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city, his performance on the series finale of the Colbert Report seemed like a huge hint. While we assumed that the "untitled" song was a sure bet to land on the LP, when To Pimp A Butterfly finally arrived, it was strangely nowhere to be found.
Punchlines are one of the most effective tools in hip-hop, and throughout his career, Ludacris has proved himself a master of them. While perfectly capable of turning his lyrics to more serious subjects (peep "Runaway" for that), Luda has become known for his ability to perfectly set up a joke with a preceding line and then knock it down with one witty bar.
Dr. Dre Wants To "Inspire" People With "Straight Outta Compton" Biopic Mar 26, 2015 at 03:58 PM 7,068 Views
Despite being out of the music game for some time, Dr. Dre's got quite a bit on his plate.
Back in January the line-up for Coachella was revealed, with a few names catching our eye, namely, Drake and The Weeknd. The former collaborators and Canadians were set to play two different days, with The Weeknd's name listed underneath headliner Jack White, and Drake a headliner in his own right.
We're very excited today to debut our first-ever digital cover story, with Mr. Wonderful himself, Action Bronson.
Before he was a Grammy-nominated, OVO-signed sensation, iLoveMakonnen was grinding on the mixtape circuit, never sacrificing his weirdness for power plays. Starting in 2012, his Drink More Water series has been a consistent source of otherworldly jams, and with volume five arriving at the end of the month, we're looking back at highlights from the first four.
A$AP Rocky's sophomore title acronym, A.L.L.A., was deciphered yesterday thanks to a video of Rocky spitting a verse from an album cut for GQ.
Ducko McFli's stock is quickly rising in this rap game, thanks to a co-sign from Mike WiLL Made It and a few choice placements, namely on Drake records. The producer recently put out his first single via Ear Drummers, the ambitious "I'm Serious" featuring Problem, Snootie Wild and Reese. We say "ambitious" because of the maniacal laughter that's sampled on the hard-hitting record.
This Monday, Action Bronson dropped his madcap, adventurous debut album Mr. Wonderful. Although it was a little less sample-driven than his prior mixtapes, its live instrumentation was still often based around skeletons of existing songs taken from far-flung genres, as is Bam Bam's habit.
T-Pain's New Mixtape Will Feature Unheard Aaliyah Vocals [Update: Full Tracklist Revealed] Mar 25, 2015 at 09:58 PM 19,359 Views
The newly released "Wait a Minute" with OG Maco has us hyped for T-Pain's The Iron Way. After performing a 42 song set at SXSW, he sat down with VIBE and revealed the other features on his upcoming mixtape. Aside from Maco, The Iron Way will feature Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., and, most surprisingly, Aaliyah.
Action Bronson’s new album is a bid to be considered the funniest man in hip hop. A week after Kendrick Lamar’s album has the entire culture debating race, politics, and society, Mr. Wonderful reminds us that sometimes rap can also be about wicked-funny punch lines and ridiculous one-liners as much as it can attempt to impact culture itself.
Rihanna's new album, which has been given the working title R8, has been rumored to be dropping as a surprise release since last year. Today we got our first clue as to when it may be coming, and it looks like it COULD be tomorrow.Rih captioned a photo (which may or may not be the album cover) with three hastags: "#March26,” “#R8,” and “#BBHMM”.
As is obvious from the multiple "who??" comments that still somehow show up on pretty much everything we post about Tink, many of you still need to get familiar with one of hip-hop's most talented young stars.
