    11 Likes25 Dislikes
    Beyoncé certainly has some inventive ways of announcing things. From her surprise self-titled album to her award show baby bump-unveiling, Bey has always found new means of making big statements. Her latest may be her most mysterious yet -- if it even is an announcement, that is. Today Bey posted a photo of herself lounging on the beach, buried in the sand. While this may not sound all that...

    For the second time in the last few months, a Chris Brown-centric event has ended in a shooting. Last year, an event he attended found Death Row mogul Suge Knight shot six times, and last night, a similar incident found five injured in San Jose. While performing his hit single, "Loyal" for a crowd at Fiesta Nightclub, a fight broke out among some attendees. Video footage of the performance...

    Birdman may not be able to brag about boolin' in the bondo on the next Rich Gang mixtape, as the Ivy Condo Association is attempting to take the space away from him. TMZ reports that the Cash Money mogul's checks have been bouncing, and he's accumulated $12,500 in unpaid fees for the home. As a result, the Association went to court in November, requesting to foreclose the condo by Christmas. We...
  • Hottest Mixtapes Of 2014
    19 Likes23 Dislikes
    We are approaching the end of the #HOTNEW14 roll out and year-end round up. Mixtapes are an essential part of the rap game and the mixtape game is stronger than ever, thanks to the accessibility the internet provides, as well as rappers giving zero fucks when it comes to industry politics, and putting out some of their best work for free. We can't shake our heads at that. Instead we hit the...
  • GLOVO: Is There A Drake & Chief Keef Collaboration Coming?

    GLOVO; it certainly has a nice ring to it, but is it the makings of a new bond between Drake and Chief Keef? Sosa just yesterday posted a photo to Instagram with a logo for the mysterious acronym, captioning the pic with "Thou Not Ready". While Keef could just be up to his naturally zany ways, further investigation reveals a lot of joking back and forth between Keef and Drizzy, which makes us...

  • Review: Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife"
    48 Likes28 Dislikes
    2014 may be remembered as one of the weakest years for rap in recent memory, but there were, however, some definite highlights, especially when it came to newcomers. Bobby Shmurda had one of last year’s biggest rap records, DeJ Loaf had one of last year’s most remixed rap records and Young Thug was one of last year’s most talked about rap artists (even if for all of the wrong reasons). And...
  • Bobby Shmurda Still In Custody Despite Instagram Video Suggesting Release
    10 Likes3 Dislikes
    While rumors have been circulating of the rapper's release, Bobby Shmurda remains in prison. An Instagram video posted yesterday by New York singer Yung Relle depicted Bobby Shmurda announcing "I'm back!" into the camera, coupled with the caption "#MyBro Is Back #DontTellNobody". While some fans were quick to assume that Shmurda had made bail, it seems that Relle was simply pulling a...

    Since Meek Mill was freed from jail about a month ago, we haven't heard any new solo tracks, so hopefully that means he's been hard at work in the studio. Today, we get some form of confirmation via his Instagram, where he's been sharing snippets of new songs from Dreams Worth More Than Money, one of which apparently features Chris Brown. Check them out below.   #2015 A video posted...

    Every time Kanye West and Kim Kardashian think they're rid of Ray J for good, he just seems to pop up again. The R&B singer -- who starred alongside Kim in her famous sex tape -- reminded everyone of his tryst with Kim via the gleefully distasteful (but admittedly catchy) track, "I Hit It First", a couple years back, and while it seemed like he wouldn't be bothering the happy couple...
  • Royce Da 5'9" Doesn't Think J. Cole's "Fire Squad" Was An Eminem Diss
    38 Likes4 Dislikes
    It's a combination of rap fans' thirst for beef and media's thirst for clicks that often turns ordinary statements into "shade". In the case of J. Cole's "Fire Squad", the speculation around a line made the rounds before many even heard the song themselves. If you're not familiar by now, Cole addressed white privilege in rap, name-checking Iggy Azalea, Macklemore, and most notably (only due to...

    Recently Rich Homie Quan spoke to rumors regarding Young Thug's sexuality. With Thugga's penchant for painting his nails and calling fellow rappers his "lovers" on Instagram, he has done little to quell rumors that he is gay, but nonetheless these rumors were denied by BFF Rich Homie.  However these same rumors plague Rich Homie Quan. During a brief sitdown with Vlad TV, Homie assured...

    Now that 2015 is underway, we have plenty of good music to look forward too, when it comes to both mixtapes (just peep our Upcoming section) and albums. Even in this one-listen-then-on-to-the-next generation, it's still appropriate to bump music that dropped last year, right? Especially because some projects didn't get as much as love as the quality of said projects deserve. By now you've...
