    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. All this would...

    When Lil Wayne took to Twitter earlier this week to announce the delay of Carter V, it wasn't all that surprising. What was surprising was his vocal frustration with both the label and his mentor/father figure Birdman. Wayne expressed that he wanted out of his deal as soon as possible, but it wasn't clear whether he'd attempt to see the threat through. Performing at Vice's 20th anniversary party...

    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. In an action that could be deemed "pulling a Tyga," Wayne just admonished his label and its CEO in a series of tweets that, among other things, reveal that we probably won't be getting Tha...
