PartyNextDoor premiered 7 new tracks tonight on OVO Sound Radio.
Is there anything more startling than hearing a 19 year old kid saying that he doesn't fear death because he's "happy for all the years [he] got to see"? Lil Herb's still around 57 years shy of the average male life expectancy in the U.S., but you don't need to be a super-sleuth to figure out why optimism isn't his strong suit. Hell, you barely even have to listen to his music.

UPDATE/RECAP: The show began with a mix from OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib, who played mostly Drake material, including a mastered version of the long-awaited Drake and Beyonce collaboration, "Can I" -- listen here. Then it was Boi-1da's turn, and he went through some of his most memorable productions, reminding us that he's been behind so many smash hits.
Childish Gambino was booed off stage after a forgettable performance this week at The Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle, Australia. According to the Newcastle Herald, Gambino's set was set to last more than an hour but he "barely uttered a word for 40 minutes." He spent the bulk of the set sitting at the rear of the stage manning the turntables while members of his Royalty crew rapped for the
Earlier today, October 3, Vince Staples shared the terrible news that his brother has died and that his death was Xanax-related. Along with the tragic announcement, he shared a picture on Instagram of his brother holding two children, and wrote, "Xanax killed my brother this morning. No matter what it's not worth it."
This isn't exactly hip-hop, but as the Biebs has been spotted partying with just about every rapper out there, and as his new single, "What Do You Mean," generated some decent buzz on the site, we thought it right to share with you the newly revealed title of Bieber's upcoming album, Purpose, as well as its release date, November 13.
In 2015, what is beef anyways? Usually, it's a series of tweets or Instagram posts where artist A is talking smack to artist B. Occasionally, if we're really lucky, we'll hear some quality bars, like the ones Drake unleashed on Meek Mill not too long ago ("Make sure you hit 'em with the prenup!").
London On Da Track Responds To Gay Rumors After Video Shows "Gay Porn" In Studio Oct 3, 2015 at 11:55pm 8,801 Views
Earlier this week, producer Beatmonster Marc posted a seemingly harmless video of himself hanging out with a bunch of guys, one of whom happened to be London on da Track, while a Young Thug song plays in the background. During the clip, though, the camera passes over a TV monitor, on which there appears to be video of two men hooking up.
Last month, we noticed that Young Thug had cut a bunch of his tour dates unannounced. Later, we received word that the rapper was postponing a good chunk of his Hy!£UN35 tour in order to put the finishing touches on his official debut album for 300, expected to be released later this year.
Bryson Tiller's debut album, T R A P S O U L, became officially available on iTunes today (Oct. 2), though it's been available to stream via Apple Music for a week.

Mac Miller is officially releasing his newest album GO:OD AM tomorrow on Warner Bros. Records. Despite the fact that the new LP, which is already available for streaming via NPR by the way, is only Mac's third proper full-length, he's delivered no less than eleven mixtapes over the years and some EPs to boot.
The Game revealed that his highly anticipated The Documentary 2 was a double disc album the other week, with 38 songs total. The rapper broke the news during his HOT 97 interview, and later followed it up with a few more details: the second disc would feature appearances from Lil Wayne, Nas and YG.
Gucci Mane is a man of many mysteries. There's the general mystery that surrounds his life, his upbringing. There's the mystery that surrounds his constant string of releases, despite his constant prison stints. Who truly knows what's going on inside GuWop's head at any given moment, anyways?
Hoooly shit, we definitely weren't expecting this. We knew Thug had Slime Season 2 on the way. But an upcoming mixtape with Migos?! Preposterous.
ASAP Rocky turns 27 today, and to celebrate the occasion, we're testing the knowledge of his fans. Have you been following Rocky since the Live.Love.ASAP days?

Meet Bryson Tiller: The Hottest Thing Out Of Louisville Since Muhammad Ali Sep 30, 2015 at 09:12am 28,764 Views
Say what you will about the effect that the internet (more specifically, social media) has had on our everyday lives, but as a tool of discovery, it's changing lives every day. Especially for musicians who don't hail from hub cities with built-in networks of industry personnel, a simple Soundcloud account can end up being a golden ticket.
