Returning to Coachella for the second weekend, The Weeknd brings out Kanye West.
This week marks the end of an era, with Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" unseating the seemingly invincible "Uptown Funk". The success of Khalifa's record was seen in album sales as well with Furious 7 moving up to the top spot on the Billboard 200. This week saw no big debuts, and we watched Wale and Ludacris fall 10-plus spots following their opening weeks last cycle.
Coming off the release of his Zip Skylark mixtape, Two-9 member, Curtis Williams, just got himself in a world of trouble again with fellow Two-9 member Key! On April 16, the two ATL artists were arrested and taken into police custody on felony charges for substance abuse and firearm possession.
Back in October, noted marijuana enthusiasts Berner and B-Real linked up for a project called Prohibition, and now they’re back for round 2. Originally intended for release on Monday, 4/20, the two decided to treat fans by offering up the sequel a few days early.
Barter 6. Cherry Bomb. OMEEKA. This week was filled with activity in the hip hop world, and as usual, a lot of it spilled onto Twitter. We saw a little bit of non-confrontational beef, some trolling and some self-congratulatory behavior-- so it was a pretty standard week, all in in all.

The Mad Decent Block Party has managed to grow every year, and the 2015 event is no exception, with the fest touting a very large lineup and a 22-date schedule. Among those on the bill are Diplo-centric acts, Major Lazer, and Jack Ü (as well as a solo set), while rap-oriented performers include T-Pain, Tyler, the Creator, Vic Mensa, and ILOVEMAKONNEN.

"Barter 6" Is A Mixtape; Young Thug's Debut Album Will Drop In August Apr 17, 2015 at 03:10pm 48,404 Views
You thought we were gonna get through this Young Thug album drop without a bona fide "WTF" moment? Think again. According to an email from 300 president Lyor Cohen, acquired by Pigeons & Planes, Barter 6 is a mixtape, and Thugger's impenetrably-titled, actual debut album will be out in August. Read an excerpt below:
Somebody's been getting salty while watching episodes of 2 Chainz's "World's Most Expensivest Shit." The rapper's just been accused of breaching a contract with an Atlanta entertainment company, Rockmo Entertainment, and is being sued to the tune of $1.5 million.
Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand.
2015's looking better for big sellers in the record industry than its predecessor. At this point last year, only three albums had gone gold (one of them being Beyoncé), but with Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly just now surpassing the 500,000-copies-sold benchmark, we've already got seven this year.
Poetic license is not a new concept. The idea of poetic license can be traced back to the Greco-Roman classical era and is derived from the Latin words, 'poeta' ('maker') and 'licentia' ('to be permitted,' 'liberty'). The concept was encouraged by a Greek philosopher by the name of Aristotle (maybe you've heard of this dude?).
Jay Z Has Been Personally Calling Tidal Subscribers To Thank Them Apr 17, 2015 at 10:27am 15,638 Views
Is it desperation or gratitude? That's the main question we have once learning that Jay Z has been personally calling some random Tidal subscribers to thank them for using his service. Business Insider spoke to an executive within the company, who said that Jay, Jack White and other "high-profile musicians" have been calling up users.
Jamie Foxx has been preoccupied with the big screen these past couple years, but it finally looks like he’s getting back to the music. On Thursday night, the actor/comedian/singer announced that he has a new album on the way called Hollywood.
Out of nowhere last month, news surfaced that Chris Brown was the father of a 9-month year old baby girl. While that unfortunately ended his relationship with longtime girlfriend Karreuche Tran, it did however start a new chapter in his life in becoming a first time father, which he looks to be fully embracing.
After diving in lakes in Armenia and getting baby North baptized in Jerusalem, Kanye West and his family finally arrived back home to the states on Thursday afternoon, but to some not such welcoming news. Just minutes after landing at LAX airport, Kanye, while with his family, was served some legal papers.
Drake Has Recorded A Collaboration With Beyonce For "Views From The Six" Apr 16, 2015 at 08:05pm 25,232 Views
While Drake's fourth studio album, Views From The Six, is expected later this year, we still don't know anything about it outside of the title. Thanks to a Coachella report from everyone's favorite tweeter; Ernest Baker, a few questions about the project have now been answered.
Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj's rumored engagement was the hot topic yesterday, but it seems it wasn't all positivity that came out of the announcement. Shortly after Nicki unveiled her heart-shaped diamond ring, Floyd Mayweather's girlfriend who goes by Bad Medina, shared a photo of herself with a similar ring, captioning the pic, "like no other".
Whether you've been following Young Thug for a few years or a few months, the anticipation for a proper debut album from the Atlanta hitmaker has been strong.
We're seeing a lot of Spotify records being broken these days, which says more about the prevalence of streaming than anything, but while Drake and Kendrick's recent triumphs could be seen from a mile away, Wiz Khalifa's new records are rather surprising.
In line with the recent (and awesome) trend of surprise albums, Tyler, the Creator announced Cherry Bomb just a few days prior to its April 13th digital release. The album’s single, “Fucking Young,” along with its attached snippet of the record's opening track, “Deathcamp,” showed a Tyler who is wearing his N.E.R.D.
Suge Knight will stand trial for murder charges stemming from a January hit-and-run incident that left one dead and one injured. The ruling was made by Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen today, with much of the focus landing on a testimony from one of the victims, Cle "Bone" Sloan.
Atmosphere don't quite fit in with the rap scene that is usually portrayed on this website, but the Minneapolis-founded group has been doing their thing now for 26 years, and counting. As one of alternative rap's most successful acts, it's time that they got the throwback treatment. For today, we're focusing on the output from the group's first few albums, beginning with 1996's Overcast!
