After threatening to break DJ Star's jaw, The Game reportedly faces arrest in New York.
Yesterday, The Game surprised us all by announcing that his long-awaited sequel to 2005's The Documentary would span two discs and 38 tracks. Unless you're a ride-or-die Game fan, this news may come as a disappointment.
First Week Sales For Drake & Future's "What A Time To Be Alive", Mac Miller's "GO:OD AM" Sep 25, 2015 at 04:27pm 81,705 Views
The first week sales for Drake and Future's internet-dominating WATTBA have arrived. Originally, the industry insiders were expecting it to move close to 500,000 copies opening week, but that number was later adjusted, and the final sales land somewhere squarely within the updated projections.
Iggy Azalea Says Entire Sophomore Album Is Produced By D.R.U.G.S. Sep 29, 2015 at 09:33am 11,374 Views
Iggy Azalea may be the most widely shat-on artist rapper of our time, but her overall musical catalogue is actually somewhat respectable. Exhibit A -- her 2011 debut mixtape Ignorant Art, produced entirely by Ty Dolla $ign-helmed production collective D.R.U.G.S. (Dirty Rotten Underground Sound).
Last week belonged to Drake and Future, and while their numbers didn't live up to the inflated projections, they still managed to keep Lana Del Rey, Mac Miller, and the persistent Beauty Behind The Madness out of the top spot.
Young Thug's Stylist Explains The Inspiration Behind His Wardrobe Jun 10, 2015 at 06:31pm 25,595 Views
One of the main reasons Young Thug is so controversial is simply the way he dresses; "I swear every time I dress myself, it go motherfuckin' viral" is now one of his most famous lines. Just look at him at the end of the "Check" video-- wearing a skintight Hooter's tank that even the restaurant's most underendowed hostesses would have trouble fitting into. And that's tame for Thugga.
Joe Budden's fledgling podcast just dropped its most consequential episode to date. The New Jersey rapper teased fans by airing various snippets from his upcoming album All Love Lost over the course of the 80-minute extravaganza.
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.
As we know, Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino's rap career has been one defined by its unexpected moves. These include, but are certainly not limited to, putting "30 Rock" pal Tina Fey on the same track as Alley Boy, tapping a Swedish composer as his go-to collaborator, and packaging his last album with a 72-page screenplay.
Chief Keef finally released his long-awaited album, Bang 3, at the top of the month -- or at least we thought he did. Sosa quickly revealed that the solid project we received was only half of the album, and that a second disc would be arriving soon.
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.
Kid Cudi Says "Speedin' Bullet To Heaven" Is 98% Done, Single Out This Month Jul 4, 2015 at 03:11pm 19,689 Views
Kid Cudi has been hard to predict over the last few years, and it seems his upcoming album, Speedin' Bullet To Heaven, is yet another curveball.Addressing fans in Twitter, Cudi gave an update on the project, which he revealed in 98% done.
50 Cent Responds To Cookie's Jab On "Empire": "You Know I Hit That" Sep 24, 2015 at 01:29pm 33,667 Views
50 Cent's Instagram diss game is off the charts. His latest masterpiece came last night when he responded to Cookie's jab in his direction on the premiere of the second season of "Empire." In the show, she called him "thirsty" for repeatedly dissing Empire Records on Instagram, a nod to the real-life rivalry between "Empire" and 50's Starz drama "Power."
With "Trap Queen" near the top of the charts and a new "My Way" remix from Drake, the ultimate cosign, Fetty Wap decided it was time for a new look. The Zoo Gang head honcho recently posted an Instagram showing a new hairdo: shoulder-length blonde dreadlocks.
It's obvious at this point that Young Thug is rap's most eccentric character. He sounds like no one else, flows like no one else, and dresses like no one else. But the allure of Thug's weirdness isn't simply that he's different. It's that he's creating a world that's impossible to resist. Every one of his quirks makes up the alien being that is Young Thug.
The Game Decided To Record Part Of "The Documentary 2" On The Toilet Jul 21, 2015 at 02:46pm 33,338 Views
As if there weren't "shittin' on 'em" puns in the rap world, The Game has truly taken on-record bathroom humor to the next level, recording a verse for his new album, The Documentary 2, on the toilet."I ain't been home in 30 days & I live 20 minutes down the freeway...... I don't have a second to waste....
PARTYNEXTDOOR did his very first interview with FADER a little while back, and now he's shared some more details of his upcoming album with the publication.
Empire has proved to a huge success, pulling in big numbers with its season 2 premiere last week. Naturally, any time something makes a big splash, the big guns start to see dollar signs and call for more of the same (see the many rumors already circulating about 90s rap biopics following Straight Outta Compton).
Drake and Beyonce collaborated on Beyonce's self-titled 2013 album, with "Mine." The two have more where that came from, with a slow-moving jam leaking online today. First just a snippet was circulating the web, but now the full record is floating around.
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.
Marvel Remixes Album Covers From Nas, The Roots, & Pete Rock & CL Smooth Jul 26, 2015 at 12:00am 16,767 Views
In a stroke of branded content genius, Marvel is planning to release 50 reimaginations of classic rap album covers as comic book covers featuring characters from the Marvel universe.
There was a time when Cash Money was in fact the strongest label in hip-hop. We're talking before unpaid producers and disgruntled artists, before feuds and lawsuits, basically before any of the negatives that cripple the label today. Cash Money used to be a label that every rapper would dream of joining, as it usually meant instant super-stardom.
The Game Says Lil Wayne, Nas & YG Will Feature On "Documentary 2" Disc 2 Sep 26, 2015 at 12:40pm 35,441 Views
The original tracklist for Game's Documentary 2 was one of the most star-studded we've seen this year, with features from Kendrick, Dr. Dre, Future, and many more. Earlier this week, Game took it a step further, and announced that Documentary 2 will be double album, with 19 additional songs (38 in total).
Kid Ink nabs the new cover of Urban Ink, and he's joined by his equally-tatted up fiancée, Asiah Azante. Ink and Asiah just recently got engaged, so this serves as a nice way of celebrating. To really make it a family affair, the couple also brought along their dog Roxie (no tattoos on her, though).
Aubrey Drake Graham was born in October, and while many artists choose to name their record labels after hometowns, personal mottos and/or expensive vehicles (looking at you, Rozay), Drizzy paid tribute to his birth month by founding October's Very Own, now known as OVO Sound.
