Tyrese shares the details of his upcoming album.
The Internet quietly announced their new album a short while ago, placing it on iTunes for pre-order. The album's tracklist tapped Kaytranada, Vic Mensa, Janelle Monae, James Fauntleroy, Steve Lacy and Tyler, The Creator. After debuting the music video for Kaytranada-featured "Girl" and the song "Special Affair," Ego Death is now available on Spotify.
I think it’s safe to say that Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug have emerged as one of the best duos in rap. Granted, they might not be as lyrically enticing as Jay Z and Kanye, but they both exude passion. Prior to their rift, they were untouchable. Their immaculate chemistry wasn’t something to ignore.
We're noticing a pattern here.
Drugs are everywhere in hip-hop. Whether they're mentioned on the radio, seen in music videos, or smuggled into concerts, drugs are pretty much unavoidable in the genre. Weed, lean, pills, coke, booze, shrooms, you name it, dope's not to hard to find. Many rappers, like Juicy J or Lil Wayne, have made it clear in their music that they love getting fucked up.
For as long as we've known him, Kid Ink's had his girl Asiah Azante by his side, and now he's ready to make that love eternal. As told by some recent Instagram posts, the Bat Gang rapper put a (very large) ring on it recently. As early as last November, he was talking about popping the question, but told Hot 97 that he was waiting for the right moment:
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.
Fiddy has no chill when it comes to clowning his fellow industry moguls on Instagram. After Diddy's arrest for assaulting a UCLA coach with a kettlebell, 50 Cent let loose a series of Instagram posts poking fun at his Ciroc competitor's unhinged temper.
Earlier this year, YG stirred up some beef on his Hot 97 freestyle, lobbing subtle disses at fellow Golden State residents Tyga and Problem. Now, Problem has spoken on the diss in a new interview, and he doesn't seem that bothered by it. Speaking to Bay Area radio station 106KMEL in a joint interview with Bad Lucc, Problem said:
Over a month after he allegedly killed two brothers as they sat in a car in New Orleans, Young Money rapper Widner "Flow" Degruy has been arrested in Baton Rouge, according to a report from the Baton Rouge Advocate. He is expected to be charged on two counts of second degree murder.
We know you're probably sick of all the year-end lists from last year, but we're already in the second month of 2015, and we're hypothesizing who will get their big break in the coming months. This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram.
While Voodoo is often considered D’Angelo’s magnum opus, Brown Sugar is not a record that should easily be forgotten. The R&B star’s debut LP melted the worlds of hip hop and soul in a way that hadn’t ever happened before, paving the way for that crossover to thrive until present day.
After dropping No Label 2 and Rich Nigga Timeline last year, Migos have spent the months leading up to YRN The Album sharing their music in a more haphazard, less organized fashion. Plenty of this is due to album delays (and consequently Offset's continued presence in jail), as well as the usual leaks that have plagued patrons of various Atlanta studios this year.

Meek Mill Reveals Album Cover, Release Date & Tracklist For “Dreams Worth More Than Money” Jun 24, 2015 at 12:10am 108,180 Views
Earlier this month, Meek Mill announced that his highly anticipated Dreams Worth More Than Money album would be dropping sometime in the month of June, and he wasn't lying either.
After months of anticipation, Lil Boosie finally released his first post-prison LP on Tuesday called Touchdown 2 Cause Hell.
In the world of rap, “raunchy music video” is almost always code for “ass-shaking fiesta.” Thus, when narrowing down this list from 30+ videos to 10, I was forced to take multiple criteria into consideration. Is the song any good? Was it popular?
FOX News Pundit On Kendrick Lamar: Rap Does "More Damage To Young African-Americans Than Racism" Jul 1, 2015 at 10:43am 22,475 Views
At Sunday's BET Awards, Kendrick Lamar delivered a rousting performance of "Alright" that featured a vandalized cop car and a huge American flag, but apparently, not everyone was a fan. The most vehement (and absurd) takedown of the show came from a very predictable place, namely FOX News, where hip hop is routinely villainized by out-of-touch talking heads.
There is somewhat of a divide between a club banger and a mainstream, popular hip-hop song, however, often times, the two overlap. The ever trust-worthy Urban Dictionary describes “club banger” as a term “used to describe a song to get all da bitches in the club movin.
We’ve been hearing about Chief Keef’s Bang 3 project since last November, but after several setbacks, it finally looks like it’ll be here sooner than later. Earlier today, Chief Keef took to his Instagram account and revealed what appears to be the tentative tracklisting for his Bang 3 album. His caption read,
Vince Staples much-anticipated debut double album Summertime '06 isn't due to drop until June 30, but the Long Beach rapper went ahead and gave NPR a sneak peak!! Thank you gawd.
Last year, we examined the ever-changing definition of "beef" in hip hop, observing how inter-artist disputes have increasingly unfolded online and perhaps become more petty since the term was coined in the '90s. That's held true in 2015, as we've seen more than a few Twitter or Instagram-based disputes play out in the year's first six months.
42 minutes after tweeting "express urself how u want is my perspective," Rome Fortune intentionally tweeted out a dick pic along with the caption, "is this artistic or creepy? thoughts. (bros u prob dont wanna open this post)."
Game has been getting us hyped for his upcoming album, The Documentary 2, with big collabs with DeJ Loaf and Meek Mill. Though we've long missed the initial January 18 released date, Game tells Revolt TV that the album will be out this summer, still in time for the 10th anniversary of The Documentary. The album will be out on June 30, which also happens to be his son's birthday.
