    81 Likes24 Dislikes
    Over the weekend, on Charts Don't Lie, we saw how basically half of Drake's new project was charting on Billboard's Hot 100. That alone seemed to be quite the feat, but Drake's now taken that a step further with EVERY song off IYRTITL charting on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Billboard reports how in addition to the ten songs that were already charting on the Hot...
  • Kendrick Lamar Gave Michael Jackson's Son A Preview Of His New Album
    30 Likes1 Dislikes
    Kendrick Lamar has been kind of stingy with sharing new music this year, leaking tracks off his untitled album sparingly. The two official singles he has shared, "i" and "The Blacker the Berry," are enough to get most of us hype for what's to come, and fiend for more (so the plan is working). It's safe to say that if Kendrick decided to give us an album preview, we'd...

    Last night Rich Homie Quan dropped off a new track with frequent collaborator Young Thug, "Homie," however those frequent collaborations may slow down a minute as Rich Homie says in a recent interview that he's going to be focusing on his solo music.  During an interview with Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9, the rapper happens to mention off-air that he'll be stepping...
  • Review: Big Sean's "Dark Sky Paradise"
    16 Likes72 Dislikes
    Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two. This is especially hard to do with Big Sean, largely because his story so far has been one of success...

    It's a big week in rap releases, with both Big Sean and the Chris Brown/Tyga project hitting stores this Tuesday. The projections are in, and while neither are doing Drake numbers, both albums are coming in with decent sales. Big Sean, who had the considerably bigger single of the two acts, will of course move more units, projected to sell 120k-130k (140k-150k including streams), while Chris...
  • What Kanye West's 3 New Songs Tell Us About His Album

    Yesterday, amid flamethrower bursts and a gaggle of up-and-coming grime artists, Kanye West debuted the third song we've heard from his upcoming album thus far. The confrontational, hard-hitting "All Day" ran counter to its two almost drum-less predecessors, "Only One" and "Wolves," and got the sub-section of Kanye fans who were displeased with those first two offerings back into an excited...

    While you may never hear a reply from Drake if you diss him, OVO Hush seems to be more than willing to reply on Drizzy's behalf. A few months back, when the Drake vs. Tyga drama first kicked off, another OVO affiliate, Chubbs, took to Instagram to air out Tyga with an infamous clip of the rapper on MTV's defunct show "Bustas." With the beef renewed in light of Drake's subliminal jab at...

    Kanye West is not an avid Twitter user, but in the past we've seen him use his account for moments of passionate fury. Those days are over (we think), as Ye took to his timeline today to officially apologize to Beck for his semi-interruption, and post-show comments at the Grammys. While he was at it, he decided to also throw an apology Bruno Mars' way. Apparently Ye had "hated on" the singer in...

    50 Cent hasn't been pleased with FOX's new hit show, Empire, since it's trailer debuted. The rapper feels that the show took a little too much inspiration from his own primetime drama, Power, and has been sporadically taking shots at the series over the last few months. In a new interview with MTV, Fif was asked about the show once again, and while he did have a few nice things to say about it,...

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him. While it may not be an instant classic, it's shaping up to be Big Sean's most cohesive project yet. Although a lot of fans heard the album...
  • Kanye West Speaks On His New Album, Destroying Exclusivity & "The Ye Button" With Zane Lowe
    We just heard Kanye West's new interview with Zane Lowe for BBC 1, and as expected it was full of inspirational, passionate, and hilarious moments.
