Chance The Rapper's "SURF" Is Complete, Full Of Guest Appearances May 28, 2015 at 02:30pm 12,323 Views
Chance The Rapper's newest musical offering, officially billed as Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment's SURF, has to be one of the most mysterious albums in some time. First of all, the fact that Chance is not billed as the lead artist left many confused, while details of the project have remained scarce.
A$AP Rocky’s relatively short career in the rap game has been one filled with high praise. His debut mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP, received exponential buzz solely off the strength of “Purple Swag,” and it was more so off the strength of the visual, which went viral (visuals have become a key component to Rocky’s career).

For his next album, Cudi will be going even lighter on the guest appearances, announcing today that Speedin' Bullet To Heaven will have no features.

After months of anticipation, Jeremih's long awaited Late Nights: The Album may finally have a release date.
If you remember back in 2013, Kanye West was sued by former soul singer Ricky Spicer, of The Ponderosa Twins Plus One, for using vocals of his all throughout the Yeezus song “Bound 2”. Spicer stated that he had not received any compensation, despite the song's major success.
Boosie Badazz' long overdue debut in New York was not the triumph it should've been, but he did everything he could to make it work anyway.
After his debut album, Live.Long.A$AP, ASAP Rocky went quiet for awhile-- music-wise, that is. In the interim between L.L.A. and A.L.L.A., Rocky rose atop the fashion world and romanced some very high-profile celebrities. He didn't forget the music, though, and A.L.L.A. is certainly his most ambitious project yet.
Teaming up with Taylor Swift might be the absolute safest way to get a number one on the Hot 100, and when it's paired with the hype for the "Bad Blood" video, it's pretty much a guarantee. Not so surprisingly, Kendrick Lamar and Swift's remix of "Bad Blood" jumped to the top spot this week after setting a VEVO record for streams on its first day.
After a few weeks without albums from big stars, we had two drop this week, with A$AP Rocky's A.L.L.A. and Boosie Badazz's long-awaited Touch Down 2 Cause Hell both arriving yesterday. Today, we get their first week sales projections from Hits Daily Double.
ASAP Rocky just released his sophomore album, A.L.L.A., earlier this week, and within the first few hours of it being available, people were already talking about a verse on a song called "Better Things," which targeted Rita Ora.

Petition Asks Billboard To Retract Iggy Azalea's "Top Rap Song" Award May 27, 2015 at 01:06pm 15,345 Views
It's difficult to argue that Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" was anything but the biggest rap song of 2014 (unless you're arguing that it's not a "rap" song to begin with, but that's a whole other story). The record sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 all summer, and sold more than any other song in the genre.
50 Cent is pretty adventurous when it comes to business, it seems he's always investing or promoting some new item every other week. He's done it all, from energy drinks to water to headphones and most recently, underwear and vodka.
Killer Mike and El-P have a busy summer and fall ahead of them.
Dear Graduates: Life Lessons From Kanye West's "College Dropout" May 27, 2015 at 12:23pm 9,156 Views
Kanye West unleashed College Dropout in 2004 - the album, a hip-hop staple, was a satire of the American education system and I was just 13 years old. Frankly, I’m not entirely sure how I even knew of the album. I do remember though, standing adamantly against a wall of a Virgin Records store, listening to the album, and it was quickly burned to a CD upon my arrival home.
Two weeks back, Mobb Deep dropped a remix of their classic track "Survival Of The Fittest" (originally included on their debut album The Infamous Mobb Deep), and now comes an accompanying EP. It features five additional, new tracks, including "Hide Away." Stream it below, via Spotify.
For legal reasons, Young Thug had to change the name of his last mixtape from Carter 6 to Barter 6, but he's not done trying to carry on the legacy of Lil Wayne's Carter series (or besmirch it, depending on who you ask).
Lil B Accuses Chedda Da Connect Of Stealing His Swag On "Flicka Da Wrist" May 27, 2015 at 10:14am 9,036 Views

Is your SoundCloud popping? If you think it is, here's a test: upload a blank, empty playlist and see how much love it gets. If you're Frank Ocean, it'll rack up around 5,000 likes in 13 hours.
