Since the release of We Are Young Money in 2009, Nicki Minaj has risen from femme fatale on the rise after dropping the excellent Beam Me Up Scotty to ubiquitous representative of aggressive femininity. Drake, once Lil Wayne’s fresh-faced protégé, is now the biggest crossover success in hip-hop — not just Young Money. Lil Wayne’s career has been on a slump in...

Nicki Minaj loves to display her curvacious body whenever possible, and usually if she is going to do so we can find the pictures on Instagram. This was no different for behind-the-scenes photos from a recent photo shoot the femcee did, wearing high-fashion clothing in a remote location.

More internet gossip for your Thursday morning. Rumors were circulating the other day that Young Money/Cash Money had signed an openly gay rapper, who goes by the name of Fly Young Red.

Despite having big tracks like "Lookin' Ass" and "Trophies" attached to it, Young Money's Rise Of An Empire, much like the Rich Gang compilation before it, suffered from a lack of promotion.
Nevertheless, the project has gone on to sell 31,047 copies in its first week, proving that the label still has enough star power behind it to sell records without a huge push behind them.

It's common knowledge that Chief Keef's raps have gone downhill, especially with the release of his past two mixtapes, Bang Pt. 2 and Almighty So, which were less than sub-par, and we're not even sure they even satisfied the biggest of Keef's fans.
Keef seemed to be adamant in his lean-sipping and trouble-making ways though, often ending up in the news because of it. It appears as though...

Drake announced on stage the other month that Lil Wayne's highly anticipated Tha Carter V would be arriving on May 5th. Weezy F fans instantly got excited, but since then, we haven't heard so much as a whisper from Wayne music-wise. That's not to say he hasn't popped up in the news, he did just this week when he praised/criticized his Young Money signee Nicki Minaj for her track "Lookin' Ass...
