Although we haven't received an update on the long-awaited/long-delayed Victory Lap album from Nipsey Hussle, it is supposed to arrive in 2015. Whatever the case may be with that album, Nipsey is prepping another album to drop before Victory Lap, called Mailbox Money. The rapper revealed the artwork today.
Trouble seems to be brewing among the ranks at Cash Money Records. After Lil Wayne, arguably the label's flagship artist, tweeted his dissatisfaction with the label and its CEO, Birdman, Tyga (who pulled a similar stunt a few months ago) has added fuel to the fire.

Lil Wayne Says Cash Money Is Refusing To Release His Album [Update: Pusha T Responds] Dec 4, 2014 at 03:01pm 166,441 Views
In his lengthy career, Lil Wayne has rarely (if ever) publicly said anything about Birdman, the man he often calls "daddy," so with that in mind, the tweets he just sent out are shocking.
Since getting dropped by Universal Music Group this summer, Azealia Banks has kept herself busy, but not in the way you'd think. Instead of working on new music, she's practicing her favorite pasttime: attacking people through Twitter. Remember when she deleted her account back in 2013 after starting too much beef? Well, she's at it, again.
Brooklyn-born Anthony Cruz isn't one of the 10 greatest rappers of all time. He hasn't released a platinum record and most of his accolades are due to a relationship with Nas. However, most critics who know their stuff will tell you that AZ is vastly underrated, and even albums like Illmatic would have suffered had he never picked up the mic.
Tyler, The Creator Targets Racism, Social Media In Lengthy Facebook Post Dec 4, 2014 at 12:11pm 14,902 Views

J. Cole showed support following the death of Ferguson resident Mike Brown at the hands of police officer Darren Wilson. Now he's doing the same in light of the grand jury decision to not indict a NY police officer who choked Eric Garner to death.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
History was on the line last night as the Philadelphia 76er's took their 0-17 record into the Target Center for a matchup with the Timberwolves. The only team in NBA history to get out to a worse start to a season was the 2009-10 Nets who opened up with an abysmal 0-18 record. Luckily for the Sixers, Brett Brown, and the City of Brotherly Love, they walked out of Minnesota with an 85-77 victory.
In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, Gillie Da Kid has revealed the full story behind his beef with Soulja Boy, citing a photo that the latter posted on Instagram as being at the root of the problem.

By now, it's no secret that streaming giant Spotify has eclipsed nearly every other comparable service in its field, so its new list of the "top" (or most popular) music of the year is probably one of the best gauges of America's listening habits that we have.
Following the recent decision of a grand jury in Ferguson not to indict police officer Darren Wilson after he killed unarmed teen Michael Brown, another verdict has been passed that's got many Americans' heads spinning.
Compared to Gucci Mane's onslaught of projects in 2014, Rick Ross releasing two albums in one year may not seem too impressive. However, the fact of the matter is this: Rick Ross is the first major-label rap artist to release two studio albums in one year since 2010, when Lil Wayne released Rebirth and I Am Not A Human Being, respectively.
J. Cole Takes Shots At Iggy Azalea, Eminem & Macklemore On "2014 Forest Hills Drive" Leak Dec 3, 2014 at 04:03pm 190,019 Views
J. Cole is going a unique route with his upcoming album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. He's shying away from traditional promo and album campaign, instead getting the fans directly involved by hosting a listening session at his childhood home (which the LP is named after) and inviting fans to come through. He's also not dropping any singles leading up to the December 9th release date.
Last week, the guy with the best selling hip-hop album of 2013 and the guy with the best selling hip-hop album of 2014 (thus far) dropped new albums.

Well, this is interesting. Chicago rapper King Louie may be quietly signed to Drake's OVO imprint, at least, that would be a good explanation for his latest tattoos. Otherwise he's campaigning to get signed really hard.
PartyNextDoor took over the song list late last night when he dropped four new records. Travi$ Scott is featured on "Jus Know," and he's got Ca$h Out on "Don't Worry." He also let go "Girl From Oakland and "Let's Get Married."
There's a lot of bickering about lyrical content in today's rap game--well, that's always been the case. But old-headed purists argue, and will continue to argue, that today's lyricists lack the depth of their long gone favorite MCs. Of course, what you look for in a rapper depends on your personal taste. Sometimes, lyrics might take a back seat.
Lil Wayne Says He's One Of The Few Artists Left Who's "Only About The Music" Dec 2, 2014 at 06:02pm 63,623 Views
Lil Wayne is supposed to be releasing his new album Tha Carter V on December 9th. Seeing as Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint is due out a week later and is now available for pre-order while Wayne's record is not, we're probably looking at another delay.
