Nicki Minaj was one of the main highlights at last night’s MTV Video Music Award’s, but not only because she graced the stage a few times, but because she pulled out her best Janet Jackson impersonation and had quite the wardrobe malfunction.
At the top of the show, Nicki performed her new hit single “Anaconda”, and while transitioning into her performance of “Bang...

Drizzy Drake is not doubt one of the biggest hip hop artists in present day. His albums have moved millions of units and he has sold out shows all the around the world. But one thing that you should know about the star is that he's also a pretty funny guy.
His comedic nature has made him a common fixture in skits on some of television's popular shows such as SNL and Jimmy Kimmel...
Rich Homie Quan was dismissed by many as a one-hit wonder early on, but with three radio hits this year alone (that's two more than Future, who he's often been compared to) he's solidified himself as a force to be reckoned with. Most recently, we've heard him team up with fellow ATL newcomer Young Thug on the Rich Gang single, "Lifestyle".
At one point, Thug and Quan were working on a joint...

Lil Reese recently stirred up some controversy when he posted a photo of a young child holding a gun on his Instagram account, as he FaceTimed with the kid (a screenshot can be viewed in the gallery above). The photo was later deleted, but it looks like Reese and his guns have caught up with him, as he was arrested last night on gun charges, according to XXL.
There are few details on the arrest,...

Protests in Ferguson are still going strong following the tragic killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown last week in Ferguson, Missouri. In fact, the marches have stretched all the way to New York City, as Times Square was filled with supporters of justice for the slain teen just last night.
Plenty of musicians have echoed similar sentiments toward the situation, with J. Cole and Elle Varner each...
Nicki Minaj has taken to Instagram to preview her bootylicious new "Anaconda" video. Depicting Minaj and several models in a jungle setting, the Sir Mix-A-Lot-sampling single features the women decked in out in black bandeaus and high-waisted bottoms. The now infamous pink g-string from the song's cover art fails to make an appearance, at least in this sample.
"Anaconda" was leaked in its...

While 2013 may have been the year of the album, with heavyweights like Jay Z, Eminem, and Kanye West all dropping new projects, 2014 is the year of the monster song. From all the way back in January until now, we've been bombarded with heat, one trending song after the next. We figure the rest of the year will be a lot more of the same (see our Top 10 most anticipated albums list) so we wanted to...

Selfies are now a worldwide phenomenon. Yes, turning the camera on yourself has become an extremely popular act of our generation. Whether it's to show off your new look, a dope location or just to share your current emotion. We love selfies.
But don't think it's just the average Joe like all of us who love taking them. Rappers are very partial to selfies too and not afraid to pull out their...

50 Cent is willing to play dirty. We've seen the G-Unit rapper take things just a little too far in many of his beefs, and his latest tiff with Floyd Mayweather is no exception. Suggesting that Floyd is not a strong reader, Fif recently challenged the boxer to read a full page of a Harry Potter book, to which Floyd replied with posting some pretty substantial checks.
50 is not letting the...

DJ Mustard is almost ready to let us hear his debut full length album, 10 Summers. Mustard has been pretty quiet since delivering his single "Down On Me" featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz, but today he breaks that silence with the official album artwork for 10 Summers as well as a release date for the LP.

Gucci Mane promised us a Brick Squad-heavy July, and though he's been known to be unreliable at times, he and his crew have delivered thus far. Following GuWop's Trap House 4, which dropped last week, here's a stream of Young Thug's 1017 Thug 2, which officially drops tomorrow.
The album kicks off with the recently-released "Lifestyle" (re-titled "1017 Lifestyle"), but after that, it's...

Wiz Khalifa's new album Blacc Hollywood just hit the stores and the net yesterday, and today the first week sales projections have arrived.
Blacc Hollywood is not looking like it'll be able to break the 100k mark, if these projections hold true. HDD reports that Wiz's new LP is projected to move 70,000 - 80,000 opening week. That's about half of what his last album, 2012's O.N.I.F.C....
