DeJ Loaf may have dropped off an EP quite recently, but it appears that the Detroit native is already back in the studio working on her proper debut album, grinding with some big names by her side.
In case there were any lingering doubts about Safaree Samuels and Nicki Minaj's highly publicized break-up, well, there won't be any more.

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.

Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife was a perfectly orchestrated album release in a broken system. While most rappers wait months or even years beyond the peak of their hype to drop their debut, the Sremm Bros were right on the money, and as a result, the album is still selling to this day (the fact that it was jam-packed with singles didn't hurt).

New Weeknd Album Announced For August, Abel Tesfaye Calls Release Date "False" May 11, 2015 at 04:38pm 23,810 Views
With all of the hype that's surrounded The Weeknd since his music began surfacing on blogs in early 2011, it's easy to forget that his one actual album, 2013's Kiss Land, underperformed both commercially and critically. This summer, he'll get a chance to avoid the sophomore slump with a new album, which arrives on August 28th.
The Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness is out today, and there were a ton of talented hands on the project. Of course, you know the megastars like Kanye West, Ed Sheeran, and Lana Del Rey, but there are also a slew of lesser known producers and writers that helped to shape this massive 2015 release.
