Young Thug's "Slime Season 3" is coming this week.
In the 25th hour, Young Thug's Slime Season 3 was retitled I'm Up, or so it seemed, until the rapper announced that SS3 was still on the way.
It’s safe to say that all eyes are on Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, better known as Majid Jordan, for one reason: Drake. After signing the R&B duo to OVO Sound, the record label he co-founded with producer Noah “40” Shebib and Oliver El-Khatib, Drizzy took Majid Jordan from virtual unknowns to producers of a double platinum, #1 song real quick.
Remember when Rick Ross was charged with assault, battery and kidnapping for supposedly pistol-whipping one of his groundskeepers? Apparently Rozay did the guy so bad that he couldn't eat solid food. Ross spent about a week in jail before getting out on $2 million bail.
Ace Hood Speaks On His Rolex Watch Falling Apart At BET Awards, Says He Fired His Jeweler | 40,163 Views
The BET Awards weekend has come to an end, but the talk that resulted from the hip-hop awards show is still happening. Ace Hood has been one of the most talked about artists that attended the event, not because he won an award, but because the bezel on his Rolex watch broke live on the red carpet.
Migos, Young Thug, Skippa da Flippa, and London on da Track just came through with "Crime Stoppers," proving that Migos Thuggin is very real. Along with the booming new collab, our people at YRN have confirmed that the full tape will arrive on Christmas Day. Dabbin' Santa must be real.
PARTYNEXTDOOR did his very first interview with FADER a little while back, and now he's shared some more details of his upcoming album with the publication.
Although these numbers are not 100 percent accurate, they are very close and according to HDD, J.Cole‘s debut album “Cole World: The Sideline Story” will debut at number one on the charts by selling an estimated 217,234 copies in it’s first week. This will be the highest record sales of any debut album this year. Congratulations to J.Cole, Roc-Nation and everyone who supported the album.
For rappers, having a dope ride is more than just a mode of transportation. Yes, it does mean no more riding the bus. But purchasing a brand new whip is symbolic of their rise to the top. Bugattis, Chevrolet Impalas, Aston Martins, and more luxury vehicles come with a hefty pricetag. If you can afford it, you’re probably living the life.
Kanye West continued his sharing ways last night, posting a photo of his computer screen as he gathers inspiration for the making of Turbo Grafx 16. The photo itself simply shows Kanye’s computer screen playing “Death With Dignity” by Sufjan Stevens, but internet sleuths were quick to notice some of the other tabs Mr. West had open on his computer. Porn? Nope.
Aside from his fire verse on Jay Rock's "Fly on the Wall" and throwing a protein shake at a gym employee, it's been a fairly quiet year for ol' Busta. 2016, it seems will be different. In a new interview with XXL, he said he plans to release a new album next year “without question.”
Leading up to his new Free Wave EP, Lucki Eck$ has been delivering a series of "Free Wave" freestyle instalments. Just last week he capped off the leaks with a visual for "Free Wave 7," which you can watch below if you missed it.
Amber Rose and Machine Gun Kelly are dunzo. During a podcast with Perez Hilton, Rose said that the couple had amicably split. “No, we’re not dating anymore,” she said. “I think it was just a mutual agreement. We’re still really good friends.”
Drake has announced a second leg of his Club Paradise tour with supporting acts J. Cole, Waka Flocka, and 2 Chainz. The tour starts May 7th, for 27 stops. Check the dates below. Purchase tickets here. May 7 – Concord, CA – Sleep Train Pavilion at Concord (J. Cole will not be appearing) May 8 – Irvine, CA – Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
CyHi The Prynce shook things up when he dropped "Elephant in the Room," a fictional narrative where he shot up the Def Jam offices while kidnapping Kanye West and throwing lyrical daggers at G.O.O.D. Music artists. It's been a bit of a confusing situation since-- we were told that he was released from Def Jam, and thus sort of assumed he was also done with G.O.O.D.
MTV has announced that teenage crooner Justin Bieber and genre-bending rapper B.o.B will be joining Kanye West and Drake as performers at the 2010 Video Music Awards.
Boxing has been a staple of the Olympic Games for over a century, but over the past few decades the sport has been relegated to day-time status because of its low profile. While the overall decline of boxing as a spectator sport has been undeniable for some time, the Olympics have further hamstrung themselves by forcing Olympic hopefuls to retain “amateur” status.
Yesterday, we got wind of a rumor that Gucci Mane might be a free man(e) come July 11th. The 1017 rapper's been incarcerated since September 2013-- first for a probation violation, then for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon-- and although he's been able to drop more music than arguably anyone else during these past 21 months, his presence has been sorely missed in the rap game.
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.
If you saw Kendrick Lamar's new music video for "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe", then you would've seen a subtle message at the end of the video that read "Death To Molly". With as many people curious on what that message actually meant, K. Dot recently spoke out about it in a recent interview with MTV's Sway.
Forbes released its 2015 Hip Hop Cash Kings list, and there are few surprises. Diddy holds down the top spot, matching the $60 million he raked in last year. He can thank Ciroc for his financial success. Sorry, 50.
Big Sean scored the biggest album of his career with 2015's Dark Sky Paradise, but from the sounds of his upcoming material, he's only just getting started. Sean was in L.A. last night for Red Bull Sound Select, and made sure to treat the audience to some samples of his new music.
While Future’s musical output has swung more in the pure rap direction recently, he has never shied away from cross-over R&B tracks. A few tracks from Honest are probably the closest we’ve gotten to full-fledged R&B in the past few years, but Future would never call himself purely a rapper. He’s way too much of an ATLien for that.
If you've been on HotNewHipHop at all today, you've probably noticed the diss record towards Lil Durk and 40 Glocc, sent from Tyga and Game.
Recently, we felt our childhood selves get pimp slapped back to reality with the forthcoming allegations that MTV's "Pimp My Ride" is guilty of deceiving both its viewers and contestants. The monitors on the back of each headrest rarely worked, high-tech contraptions were added just for TV, and contestant reactions were exaggerated.
Drake Calls Meek Mill's "Dreams & Nightmares" Intro "One Of The Best Rap Moments Of Our Generation" | 56,193 Views
Hearing the intro to Meek Mill's debut album, Dreams & Nightmares for the first time was a truly exhilarating experience. What begins as a reflective, piano-laden number suddenly transforms into a menacing trap anthem-- coupled with some of Meek's best rapping, the song definitely left an impression.
It looks like Rick Ross is facing another lawsuit from hip-hop photographer Armen Djerrahian. If you remember last year (in May to be exact), Rozay was sued by Armen for using photographs that he’d taken without his permission, and now apparently the same thing happened in Rozay’s latest music video.
Lil Durk's career has turned out pretty swimmingly, but it's possible that he could be an even bigger star at the moment, if he opted to rap a verse on Chief Keef's seminal 2012 drill anthem "Don't Like."
As we reported yesterday afternoon, Chris Brown and his former new flame Karrueche Tran have officially called things off. Ending their relationship on bad terms, Brown went out and called her a "bitch" during a live performance in California before confirming that she dated Drake while he was in prison.
Philadelphia Rap Icon Cool C To Be Executed In January [Update: Execution Put On Hold] | 165,803 Views
Cool C has spent the last 18 years in prison following a 1996 murder conviction. The Philadelphia rap legend was given the death penalty when he was found guilty for the murder of police officer Lauretha Vaird in a robbery attempt assisted by Steady B, a fellow member of his rap group, C.E.B.
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
