Last March, Boosie came home after almost five years in prison. At 32 years old, it was unclear if Baton Rouge's biggest hero would be able to execute a return to form, though we should've known better. Since he's been on the outs, equipped with a fresh name change, Boosie Badazz has already hit us with too many features to count.
Lil Wayne and Christina Milian's relationship isn't exactly a secret, but both parties turn pretty coy when asked about it. What Milian won't say publicly is pronounced loud and clear by here new tattoo -- a declaration of her love for Weezy.
Last night, we were rather shocked to hear a leaked Rich Homie Quan song that seemed to condone rape. After all, Quan's lyrics are usually quite respectful of women, and have even led some to hesitantly call him a "feminist." But on "I Made It," he was out there rapping some lyrics which would definitely upset all feminists.
While anticipation grows for A$AP Rocky's second album's release, At.Long.Last.ASAP (A.L.L.A), Rocky has been up to a lot more than just rapping. Since the release of Long.Live.ASAP in 2013, Rocky has been on hiatus, at least, from the rapsphere. Even before he dropped his debut album, he started experimenting in the business of fashion.
The single rollout for Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint have been a bit strange so far.

As far DJs go, there's no one who sells more music than DJ Khaled. Khaled Khaled (no typo) is far from just a DJ though. The Miami hip-hop magnate is the founder and CEO of We the Best Music Group, which includes artists like Ace Hood and dancehall superstar Movado, and the President of Def Jam South, which helped revive Def Jam as a whole toward the end of the '00s.

Even before he started last year's "First Of The Month" series, Cam'ron had two projects in the works that we still haven't heard. The first is a collaborative EP with A-Track called Federal Reserve, from which we've heard "Humphrey" and "Dipshits," and the last (maybe even of Cam'ron's career) is Purple haze 2, the long-awaited sequel to his best-loved album.

Gucci Mane Pens Letter To Fans On 10th Anniversary Of "Trap House" May 12, 2015 at 12:43pm 14,659 Views
Gucci Mane's now been incarcerated for over a year and a half, and although he arguably put out more albums than anyone else last year, we haven't had much actual contact with the 1017 boss.
