Queens' wildest MC finally makes a project that matches his larger-than-life personality. Ignoring conventions and common decency, Bronsolino walks us through the making of his major label debut.
Rihanna's new album, which has been given the working title R8, has been rumored to be dropping as a surprise release since last year. Today we got our first clue as to when it may be coming, and it looks like it COULD be tomorrow.Rih captioned a photo (which may or may not be the album cover) with three hastags: "#March26,” “#R8,” and “#BBHMM”.
A$AP Rocky's sophomore title acronym, A.L.L.A., was deciphered yesterday thanks to a video of Rocky spitting a verse from an album cut for GQ.
The relationship between Christina Milian and Lil Wayne remains mysterious. Is it strictly business, with Weezy F helping give Milian a much-needed publicity and/or career boost, or is it a matter of two Young Money artists in lurve?
This morning we got a little teaser verse from A$AP Rocky's highly anticipated sophomore effort, A.L.L.A. For a while we simply knew the album title by its acronym, but along with that acapella verse from GQ, we get the complete album title: At.Long.Last.A$AP.
Action Bronson's Mr. Wonderful was much heavier on the promo side than its same-day release partner I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, but despite that, the two are neck-in-neck when it comes to sales.
Before he was a Grammy-nominated, OVO-signed sensation, iLoveMakonnen was grinding on the mixtape circuit, never sacrificing his weirdness for power plays. Starting in 2012, his Drink More Water series has been a consistent source of otherworldly jams, and with volume five arriving at the end of the month, we're looking back at highlights from the first four.
While earlier this week it seemed that things were going south for online streetwear distributor Karmaloop, they may have found a way out of their imminent bankruptcy.
Dr. Dre Wants To "Inspire" People With "Straight Outta Compton" Biopic Mar 26, 2015 at 03:58 PM 3,806 Views
Despite being out of the music game for some time, Dr. Dre's got quite a bit on his plate.
Dame Dash has the twittersphere on a roll right now, thanks to the #TweetLikeDameDash hashtag. It all stemmed from Dame's interview with The Breakfast Club, where he went on this nonsensical tirade about how real men don't have bosses. It came with a whole bunch of other caveats for all the #RealMen out there. Take note, men: Real men don't talk about other men.
Recently a report circulated that Dame Dash and Kanye West were interested in purchasing Karmaloop (although it appears they are about to go bankrupt, so now might not be the best time). The remark was made by Dame in an off-hand way during an interview, but was quickly distributed throughout the internet.
As is obvious from the multiple "who??" comments that still somehow show up on pretty much everything we post about Tink, many of you still need to get familiar with one of hip-hop's most talented young stars.
Though Kendrick Lamar's latest album, To Pimp a Butterfly, was supposed to be released yesterday (March 23), it came out a week early (March 16). Thus, TPAB's first week numbers are in, and the album has taken the top spot on the Billboard 100. According to HDD, To Pimp a Butterfly moved 318,988 copies in its first week.
Punchlines are one of the most effective tools in hip-hop, and throughout his career, Ludacris has proved himself a master of them. While perfectly capable of turning his lyrics to more serious subjects (peep "Runaway" for that), Luda has become known for his ability to perfectly set up a joke with a preceding line and then knock it down with one witty bar.
Back in January the line-up for Coachella was revealed, with a few names catching our eye, namely, Drake and The Weeknd. The former collaborators and Canadians were set to play two different days, with The Weeknd's name listed underneath headliner Jack White, and Drake a headliner in his own right.
Earl Sweatshirt's Darkest Lyrics On "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" Mar 25, 2015 at 11:40 AM 12,027 Views
When Earl Sweatshirt was just 15, he was rapping about raping nuns and slitting wrists, so it's hard to imagine his lyrics getting any more demented than that. But on his new album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, they do, albeit in a more subtle, depressing way.
Jay Z is making moves in the streaming game, acquiring Aspiro, a company which hosted two European music streaming companies-- TIDAL and WiMP --for a cool $56 million earlier this year. He's no ready to relaunch the sites, but he's decided to turn them into one entity, known simply as TIDAL.
Yung Gleesh Reportedly Charged With Sexual Assault [Update: He's Been Arrested] Mar 26, 2015 at 06:50 PM 11,295 Views
According to a local news report from KXAN, Yung Gleesh has been charged with sexual assault stemming from an incident that took place in Austin, Texas last week.
Kendrick Lamar Throws a Surprise Concert On A Moving Truck In Hollywood Mar 25, 2015 at 03:04 AM 19,145 Views
Kendrick Lamar took his talents to the road Tuesday night (literally) and gave L.A. fans quite the experience.
Ty Dolla $ign's ascent to hook master and forefather of RnBass has been a gradual one, to the point that the first time hearing him on record could vary drastically from person to person. The truth is, you could have been hearing Ty's voice and not have even known it, his writing voice that is.
Now that we've officially ushered in 2015, we can expect Coachella to go down sooner rather than later. The yearly music fest has announced their typically massive three-day line-up today, with tickets going on sale in a day's time.
One of the highlights on Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise was "Deep", a DJ Mustard-produced collaboration with Lil Wayne. On the song, Wayne raps, "I feel like Sean, don't get enough shine / Is it because he ain't got the tattoos? He ain't throwing up signs? / Well, let me throw up mine".
Ducko McFli's stock is quickly rising in this rap game, thanks to a co-sign from Mike WiLL Made It and a few choice placements, namely on Drake records. The producer recently put out his first single via Ear Drummers, the ambitious "I'm Serious" featuring Problem, Snootie Wild and Reese. We say "ambitious" because of the maniacal laughter that's sampled on the hard-hitting record.
We're very excited today to debut our first-ever digital cover story, with Mr. Wonderful himself, Action Bronson.
This Monday, Action Bronson dropped his madcap, adventurous debut album Mr. Wonderful. Although it was a little less sample-driven than his prior mixtapes, its live instrumentation was still often based around skeletons of existing songs taken from far-flung genres, as is Bam Bam's habit.
