In an new interview, Wacka Flocka Flame discusses his how life has changed for him since his brother, Kayo Redd's, death last December.
Waka Flocka is not necessarily known for his vulnerability, but our heart has gone out to him since his brother's all-too-recent passing, last December. When he sat down with WKYS, he spoke about how his life is different now, saying:
Kevin Durant was unable to help his team on the court last night as they put on an atrocious offensive display and fell to the Rockets, 69-65. That said, KD was still doing his best to help out his squad by getting in the head of Dwight Howard, repeatedly telling him 'You're a p***y. '
A$AP Rocky's upcoming album A.L.L.A is definitely one of the most anticipated releases coming this summer. We received the album art the other week, which pays homage to Rocky's fallen friend A$AP Yams. Today that's followed up with the tracklisting. The album appears to be pretty feature-heavy, but we're sure Rocky will still come out as the star.
After a minor set back, The-Dream decides to keep his word and release his highly anticipated Crown EP today.
Logic's sophomore album, The Incredible True Story, was a rather quiet success for Def Jam. The album surpassed early sales projections, stealing the show for #1 rap album the same week Ty Dolla $ign and Jeezy dropped respective albums. The next logical move (ha) is to take the album on the road. Logic isn't only visiting North America, he'll be heading overseas for his "Incredible World Tour."
It looks like we’re that much closer to hearing Jay Rock’s highly anticipated sophomore album 90059. Tonight, the project was made available for pre-order on iTunes, which ultimately shared the album’s cover art and official tracklisting as well.
Congratulations are in stored for Travis Scott who’s “Antidote” record has officially gone platinum.
With Adele taking the #1 spot again this week, the top-selling album in the country alludes the hip hop industry. It wasn't a total loss though, however, as Rihanna jumps from #3 to #2 with her newest record ANTI. Does Rihanna have what it takes to beat out Adele next week? Time will tell...
The rap performance at the bar/bat mitzvah isn't anything new, as we've recently seen teens flexing on their friends with guest appearances from the likes of Nicki Minaj and Fetty Wap, but a coming-of-age celebration that went down in New York City this weekend had possibly the most perfect guest -- Drake.Drizzy, who we all saw re-enact his own bar mitzvah in the "HYFR" video came through for
With his surprise mixtape, Fuck It, still heavy in rotation, Machine Gun Kelly is already shifting his focus onto his sophomore album General Admission. Tonight, the Cleveland Bad Boy decided to make the album available for preorder on iTunes, ultimately revealing the tracklist & artwork in the process.
Curren$y built the foundation of his following on a legendary run of mixtapes that started around the 2008 era. It was seven (count 'em!) tapes of spitting over classic hip hop beats with a fresh flow that poised him to be the next big thing in New Orleans hip hop.
In terms of rappers from different area codes that join forces for a mixtape, Drake and Future are one of the strangest pairs we've seen in a minute.
Rich Homie Quan was the latest guest on ESPN's "Highly Questionable", on which the rapper talked about his rough come-up (robbing houses four times a week), sports--he considers himself the rap-game Steve Smith, and his fallout with former Rich Gang partner Young Thug.
This weekend's Odd Future carnival seemingly did more to tear apart the Wolf Gang than bring them together. Hodgy Beats took the opportunity to fire some shots at Tyler, The Creator during his set with OFWGKTA, calling him a "fraud" and accusing the rapper of turning his back on the crew.
1990s rapper, MC Supreme, was killed in a car crash this past weekend in Malibu. Supreme, real name Dewayne Coleman, was 47-years old.
I first saw Vince Staples through his baby picture, the artwork to his breakout mixtape, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1, was floating down my Tumblr feed in 2011. However, it wasn’t until I was listening to Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris, that I was blown away listening to Vince completely slaughter the outro of “Hive,” and from there on anything else I heard him on.
Well, damn. Young Thug may have just surpassed 50 Cent in the running for biggest troll of 2015. Fans really thought that Metro Thuggin was gone forever. But now, it seems, the whole beef might have been a means of promoting Thugger's new song, "Hercules," which drops tonight...produced by none other than Metro Boomin.
Looking at the projections, The Game and Machine Gun Kelly were neck-and-neck for sales last week, but someone had to pull ahead in the end, and that person was MGK.
It appears that Childish Gambino was in the studio last night working on a new album. According to the Twitter account of Los Angeles singer Aaron Michael Gutierrez, the rapper brought in a 50-person choir to cut five brand new songs. Sounds promising!!
Earlier this week, hip hop lost a legend in Phife Dawg, who passed away at age 45 due to complications from diabetes. Wednesday night, A Tribe Called Quest issued a formal statement on their website regarding the death of their brother:
Kanye West's album, T.L.O.P., is finally arriving in an hour's time, with a worldwide screening of it, paired with a TIDAL live stream for all those fans who weren't able to cop theatre tickets. The album's been quite an ordeal, shifting from title to title, and encouraging one of the most active-on-twitter-Kanye's we've seen in a while.
Lil Wayne Says Cash Money Is Refusing To Release His Album [Update: Pusha T Responds] | 168,270 Views
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.
Last month, Lil Wayne had some strong words for Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun. The rapper addressed Scooter in a video last month, calling him out him out for allegedly making some comments about Bieber's friend, and Wayne's Young Money signee, Lil Twist."I heard this bitchass nigga" Scooter talking shit about Twist," Wayne said in the clip, before threatening Braun.
Seven years after Wale released his blazing Mixtape About Nothing, he’s released The Album About Nothing. His alternative hip hop style has come a long way in the time since; he’s inked a deal with Rick Ross, had a #2 album with Ambition, and a #1 album with The Gifted.
Drake's inaugural episode of his "OVO SOUND" Beats 1 radio show Saturday lived up to the hype, and then some. Assisted by OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib and PRIME producer Eric Dingus, Drizzy delivered a 2-hour show highlighted by the appearance of 3 brand new songs: his Sweeterman" remix , Wizkid's “Ojuelegba (Remix) feat. Drake & Skepta, & Roy Wood's "Drama" feat.
DMV native Logic is steadily on the rise, having earned a spot in the XXL Freshmen list this year, and following that up with well-received mixtape Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever and a Def Jam deal. Logic fans have become used to the emcee's candor on the mic, and his openness when spitting about his family life and troubled times growing up in Maryland.
A few days ago Wale put out a brand new album called The Album About Nothing. If you're not a fan of "Seinfeld," it may sound like Mr. Folarin is trying too hard to make some sort of weird artistic statement. But if you're a fan of the 90s comedy show, or a longtime fan of Wale's music, you know that this isn't the first record to be centered around the sitcom.
Is this what losing a rap beef looks like in 2016? After a wild week of Instagram memes and only one maybe diss track to speak of, it looks like the 50 Cent vs Meek Mill beef may finally be slowing to a stop.
Rap was born in New York, but it’s been splitting time in a few cities lately. It has a condo in Chicago, a house in the Los Angeles area. Rap probably has a couch to crash on in Houston and goes to Toronto a couple times a year as well. Most recently it has spent a boatload of time in Atlanta.
This was bound to happen sooner or later. In the age of online beefing, Azealia Banks and Lupe Fiasco are two of the most prolific personalities in hip-hop. While they may often struggle to get their music out, their opinions seem to face no such problems.
