The interview will stream on BBC 1 starting at 3 PM EST today, with a mix from Zane preceding the interview. With a new album on the way, and Ye's debut of his new song, "All...
  • Kendrick Lamar Gave Michael Jackson's Son A Preview Of His New Album

    Kendrick Lamar has been kind of stingy with sharing new music this year, leaking tracks off his untitled album sparingly. The two official singles he has shared, "i" and "The Blacker the Berry," are enough to get most of us hype for what's to come, and fiend for more (so the plan is working). It's safe to say that if Kendrick decided to give us an album preview, we'd...

    Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Sean set to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold out of the crates. We already covered...

    Over the weekend, on Charts Don't Lie, we saw how basically half of Drake's new project was charting on Billboard's Hot 100. That alone seemed to be quite the feat, but Drake's now taken that a step further with EVERY song off IYRTITL charting on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Billboard reports how in addition to the ten songs that were already charting on the Hot...

    Last night Rich Homie Quan dropped off a new track with frequent collaborator Young Thug, "Homie," however those frequent collaborations may slow down a minute as Rich Homie says in a recent interview that he's going to be focusing on his solo music.  During an interview with Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9, the rapper happens to mention off-air that he'll be stepping...

    50 Cent hasn't been pleased with FOX's new hit show, Empire, since it's trailer debuted. The rapper feels that the show took a little too much inspiration from his own primetime drama, Power, and has been sporadically taking shots at the series over the last few months. In a new interview with MTV, Fif was asked about the show once again, and while he did have a few nice things to say about it,...
  • Earl Sweatshirt Unveils "Not Redy 2 Leave" Tour With Vince Staples
    It seems that Earl Sweatshirt has something up his sleeve. Following a couple of quietly released new tracks, the rapper has hit us with the announcement of a 31-city tour, recruiting DORIS feature MVP Vince Staples, as well as Remy Banks. We're thinking a new album can't be too far away, but before we get ahead of ourselves, check out the massive list of tour dates below. Things kick off in St...

    It's a big week in rap releases, with both Big Sean and the Chris Brown/Tyga project hitting stores this Tuesday. The projections are in, and while neither are doing Drake numbers, both albums are coming in with decent sales.

    We've reached a day and age when a new Kanye West interview is an event in and of itself. Thanks in part to his iconic "George Bush hates black people" quip in 2005 and a pair of headline-worthy outbursts two years ago, Mr. West now commands millions of peoples' attention every time he makes an appearance on a talk show, even when the discussion centers on something as inconsequential as a...

    While you may never hear a reply from Drake if you diss him, OVO Hush seems to be more than willing to reply on Drizzy's behalf. A few months back, when the Drake vs. Tyga drama first kicked off, another OVO affiliate, Chubbs, took to Instagram to air out Tyga with an infamous clip of the rapper on MTV's defunct show "Bustas." With the beef renewed in light of Drake's subliminal jab at...

    Over the last few years, we've seen A$AP Ferg grow from the scene-stealing feature on A$AP Rocky's "Kissin' Pink" to a full fledged star, but according to Ferg, his growth is far from complete. We spoke to the Harlem rapper about his upcoming sophomore album, which is coming sooner than you might think, as well as the influence of A$AP Yams on his artistic confidence. "Man, I'm a perfectionist....
  • Childish Gambino's Most Unexpected Career Moves
    Yesterday, we learned that Donald Glover might not be calling himself Childish Gambino for much longer. As that's the only rap name we know him by, this came as a bit of a shock, but it's far from the first surprising move of his career. Ever the unconventional MC, Gambino is always throwing people for a loop, whether due to unexpected collaborations, attention-getting soundbites from...

    Last year, 150,000 pairs of counterfeit sneakers- valued at $1 million- were seized from a warehouse in Olivares Compound in Parenque City, Philippines. The warehouse was shut down, Jon Taffer style, but it wasn't until recently that Philippines' authorities destroyed all of the kicks; which again were worth approximately $1 million. The lot of fake kicks included knock-off Nikes, Vans,...

    Kanye West's interviews are generally more eventful than that of your average artists, and Zane Lowe interviews are generally a little more eventful than that of your average radio host's, so together, you get a pretty magical combination. When Kanye's last interview with Zane dropped back in 2013, it spawned plenty of classic Kanye quotes, and was even the source for Jimmy Kimmel's parody that...
