A look at hip-hop sales and chart placements this week.
50 Cent's beef can escalate pretty quickly, but they usually deflate in a similar fashion. We've seen 50 trash the members of G-Unit and reunite the group in the same year, and now, after mocking incessantly mocking FLoyd Mayweather on Instagram over the last little while, he's decided to mend their relationship.
Between the Rich Gang mixtape, and the insane number of leaks, Rich Homie Quan has been pretty inescapable over the last year.

If you checked out the review for Yelawolf’s most recent effort Love Story, you may have noticed that there is quite a split on the merit of the record among fans and staff alike.

Waka Flocka's debut album, Flockaveli, dropped in 2010, and its influence is still felt immensely in rap today. With the official sequel on the way, it's important for Waka to produce something just as special for his fans.
Last night (April 24), marked the official celebration of the 10th anniversary of BAPE's flagship store in NYC. The hip-hop and fashion worlds collided in SoHo to pay homage to the influential Japanese streetwear brand. The night featured two special from performances from rappers who have been known drape themselves in BAPE, Travi$ Scott and Pusha T.
Chance The Rapper hasn't had good luck with his health over the last couple of years. One year ago (nearly to the day, actually), the Chicago emcee announced that he would be cancelling some shows after suffering symptoms of tonsillitis and the flu. Today, he's once again out for a few shows following a bout of sickness.
The first time I ever heard Fab was when I was 12. I heard “Can’t Deny It” and realized that he was beyond nice. You see, Fabolous is a gladiator. You can throw him in the octagon and he’ll walk out unscathed. I always refer to him as the Vince Carter of rap because at any moment, he could unleash an array of tricks that could leave you in awe.
On Tuesday (April 21), Dame Dash lost primary custody of his two daughters to his ex-wife, fashion designer Rachel Roy, who claimed Dame was unfit to raise their children. We hadn't heard Dame speak on the matter, though it appears his retaliation will come in the form of a lawsuit--for $2.5 million.

Ariana Grande and Big Sean's break-up is going to be a source of fodder for at least another week, so hopefully you're not sick of it just yet.
You may have never heard of him, but apparently he has the ear of Paul Rosenberg and Eminem. A songwriter and producer by the name of Astray signed with Shady Music Publishing/Universal Music Group Publishing, as announced on twitter by Eminem's manager and the artist himself.

Tyler, The Creator Says "Smuckers" Beat Was Intended For Kanye West & Jay Z Apr 23, 2015 at 08:22pm 21,523 Views
Tyler, The Creator's new album, Cherry Bomb, is a bit of a divisive LP, but the one record that people seem to be agreeing on is the Kanye West and Lil Wayne collaboration, "Smuckers".Not only are the performances top notch, the instrumental is also quite an achievement, which makes sense, as it was apparently intended to be given to Jay Z and Kanye.
Rihanna has released some new songs over the last few months, but each feels a bit like a false start to her album roll out.
Diplo has become a hugely successful name in the electronic world, but at this point, his stage name is tied more to his personality than it is his music. Participating in big collaborative acts such as Major Lazer (originally a project with Switch) and Jack U, a duo made up of himself and Skrillex, Diplo music has become less and less of a priority.
Rush Hour is something of a beloved franchise, so news of a new installment to the series is not something to joke about. A new billboard in L.A. has suggested that a new film may be on its way... or it's all an elaborate ruse.
After Yelawolf’s first major-label album Radioactive proved to be, well, just that; and failed to meet the standards set by his 2010 mixtape Trunk Muzik, it felt as though - with his second effort Love Story - an explanation or apology was due. He seemingly traded in his trademark mud-coated country roots for pop-pandering.
Ariana Grande May Have Used Justin Bieber To Make Big Sean Jealous Apr 23, 2015 at 04:11pm 46,821 Views
While Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's handsy performance in L.A. was dismissed as friendly showmanship at the time, it only preceded Grande's break-up with Big Sean by about a week, suggesting that the stunt may have meant a little more than the singer made it seem.
Ciara Is Russell Wilson's Date To The White House Correspondents' Dinner Apr 23, 2015 at 03:36pm 15,717 Views
Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was recently spotted at a Seattle Mariners game, and we got a grainy shot off an attractive woman seated next to him. Soon after, the Internet began rumoring that the woman might be "I Bet" singer Ciara, and it turns out they were right.
We got word in November that Frank Ocean, born Christopher Edwin Breaux, was attempting to legally change his name, however the judge denied his request because the singer had a few unpaid tickets and a suspended driver's license.
This may make you feel a little old, but Kid Cudi's career-launching mixtape A Kid Named Cudi is about to turn seven years old. While the "Day 'n' Nite" artist has released much music since then, many fans long for the alternative-minded rap the Cleveland kid layed down on his first two albums.
The ongoing riff between 50 Cent and Floyd "Money" Mayweather dates back to 2012, when 50 claimed Mayweather owed him a big check for funding business plans that never actualized.
