    Thus far in 2014, no one in hip-hop has been able to top the first week that Rick Ross' Mastermind had in March (selling 179,000 copies), but now J. Cole's been predicted to best it by quite a substantial margin. With his 2014 Forest Hills Drive officially dropping today after an extremely short promo run, Cole seems like he'd be at a disadvantage, but HitsDailyDouble is...

    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.

    Eminem's compilation album Shady XV isn't supposed to be dropping until November 24th, but you know how things go on the internet, everything tends to arrive a tad early. Apparently Em isn't exempt from this general rule, and with album leaks circulating, fans (and blogs) have noticed a diss (of sorts) towards Iggy Azalea.

    Lil Wayne likes to spoil his oldest child, Reginae Carter, and of course her sweet 16 was no exception.

Wayne's daughter earned herself a BMW SUV as well as a Ferrari GTO. No word on whether she can actually drive these things. Reginae's...

    Some rap fans can't help but question any behaviour from male artists that doesn't fit into a very basic view of masculinity. Young Thug, who has never been one to be put in a box, strays pretty far from this archetype -- from wearing vibrant colors, to calling his male friends "lovers". Close-minded onlookers have defined Thug's swag as "gay" or the more coded homophobic term, "sus" (as in...
