A 21-year old aspiring rapper is suing Jay Z for allegedly blocking his paternity claim attempts.
Isn't it crazy how some rappers just refuse to retire? Take Jay Z for example, he retired about a decade ago and that lasted all of no time at all. It's hard to put down something you truly love, and even though rap is a young man's sport, this list is dedicated to those who hardly age.

This past October, Juvenile returned to the label he was raised on by inking a deal with Cash Money. A few months later, the turmoil began between Lil Wayne and Birdman, and by extension, Young Money and Cash Money. Weezy has since sued Birdman for a hefty sum, and it doesn't seem like a resolution between the former partners will happen any time soon.
After dropping off three new albums last week dubbed Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, Gucci Mane decides to follow that up with some new Dessert for us now.
It's good to be Rozay right now as he takes his unlikely sales victory over Pharrell's latest album.
It's written in hip-hop lore: The story of a Detroit kid who fought severe personal poverty in hip-hop's battle underground, all the way to mainstream dominance. There's arguably been no other hip-hop star that's reached the level of cultural omnipresence that Eminem has at the turn of the millennium. He was hip-hop's greatest hopes and society's biggest fears all in one.

In recent years, hip-hop artists have become more and more tatted as the trend continues to grow. Once upon a time, the average rapper may have had a few selective tats on their bodies, but it's now a usual sight to see emcees with fully tatted chests, sleeves, backs and even tattoos on the face. Artists such as 50 Cent, Tyga, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa exhibit this perfectly.

Kanye West's highly anticipated interview with The Breakfast Club hit the web this morning, and at 57 minutes long, there's a lot of information and gems packed into it.

If Def Jam taught us anything, it's to respect the DJ. The DJ is responsible for the perpetuation of the art form that is hip-hop. Without DJs, there'd be no medium for the streets and masses to access the music they crave.

Kendrick Lamar took his talents to the road Tuesday night (literally) and gave L.A. fans quite the experience.
Last night (March 19), The Weeknd headlined YouTube's SXSW showcase and treated fans to some new music. The new song, reportedly titled "Mood Music", is produced by Million $ Mano, who was Kanye West's former tour DJ. As far as the "mood" on this one, it's typical XO: late-night/early morning (depressed) vibes, with enough bass to be a club staple.
With the rise of social media, we can only wonder if artists would have the balls to say the things they say via Instagram and/or Twitter in real ass life. The social media age has made it all too easy for artists and the average person alike to throw shade whenever they please, and then, when things get a bit rough, hit 'delete.' Fortunately, most of the time, we catch it.
