Tyler, The Creator discusses White people using the word "nigga" and explains why he doesn't care about it.
Mobb Deep’s Havoc is getting ready to drop off his new solo album, 13 Reloaded, next month, and tonight he decided to reveal the official tracklist and artwork for it.
On paper, recording a song for a film soundtrack is considered the ultimate form of selling out. The music itself is literally used as promotional material for a larger product. Music money is big, but movie money is on another level (ask Ludacris, who hasn't released an album since "Fast Five").
3 is the magic number for Willow Smith it seems. Making news for her philosophical meanderings with older brother Jaden recently, Willow has also managed to release some music, most notably her 2014 EP, 3, which just so happens to made up of three songs. Today, Smith returns with yet another 3-track release, taking her latest song, "Heart", and adding two brand new numbers.
The other week the kid Tory Lanez stopped by our office for an interview.

The Toronto native opened up in our interview, discussing his upbringing and the loss of his mom, his behind-the-scenes work, and much more.
If you've been fiending for some grimy, dim-lit East Coast rap, look no further than Wati Heru and Kashaka's Dystopia FM EP. The rapper and producer both hail from Brooklyn, and today they've given us six tracks as an introduction to their intriguing sound.
Earlier this week, a jail ID of Chris Brown's apparently popped up online with a hefty price tag. It wasn't the price that caught Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos' attention, but the fact that the photo identification had somehow made its way out of police custody, where it belonged.
Macklemore Discusses His Job Before Rapping, "Jimmy Iovine" & More Dec 3, 2012 at 01:59pm 32,729 Views
Although Macklemore has been making waves in the pool that is rap, he isn't getting caught up in any major label deals as of yet. Macklemore's independently released album with Ryan Lewis, The Heist, managed to debut at #2 on the charts. Quite a feat for a rapper who did not have much radio play prior to that time.
This week we see a few fluctuations within Charts Don't Lie, however Nicki Minaj keeps the #2 spot on lock with The Pinkprint. It's not a bad resting place per say, although we're sure #1 would have felt that much better. Nicki's numbers have been better than we expected, however, they're no Taylor Swift. In her second week out, she brought her total sales to just over 300k-- J.

The last few months have been a weird time to be a Jeremih fan. We've seen Chicago singer's Mustard-assisted jam "Don't Tell Em" rise up the charts, peaking at number 6 on the Hot 100, but seemingly nothing has come of the surprise success, with no release date in sight, as well as no video for the hit -- which is pretty much unheard of for a song with such momentum.
Pusha T already has his very own fashion line with Play Cloth, and he one-upped that earlier this month with the opening of a boutique store Creme in his home of Norfolk, Virginia.
Yesterday we saw the new, modest home purchased by Dr. Dre's Aftermath signee and protegee Kendrick Lamar. K. Dot's $540,000 home, which some speculate may be for his family not himself, pales in comparison to the lavish homes of hip-hop super stars like Drake and Rick Ross, nonetheless, it all the more proves that Kendrick is a humble guy who doesn't need the glitz and the glam.
1994 was a very important year for hip hop music. What 1969 was for psychedelic rock, or what 1977 was for disco, 1994 was for hip hop. It was an absolutely shaping year that prepared an underground art for mainstream explosion. Albums like Illmatic and Ready To Die spearheaded the movement, but albums by O.C., Warren G and Gang Starr also helped to sculp the scene.

British Concert Promotor Wants To Sue Rick Ross, But Can't Find Him May 17, 2014 at 11:08pm 17,582 Views
With a larger-than-life appearance like his, Rick Ross is the last guy you'd expect to be difficult to locate, but that's exactly what a British concert promotor is having trouble with. Christian Ezechie of the promotion company Executive Decision claims that Rozay owes him $200,000 for a concert he never showed up to, but cannot get in contact with him.
PUMA brand, who have the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, on their roster got the dream chaser, Meek Mill to sign an endorsement deal.

The LP officially drops on December 9th -- preorder it here.
Snoop Dogg's open love affair with Mary Jane has led to some problems with the law in other countries, and one such country, Norway, has now banned Snoop from visiting for two years.The ban occurred when Snoop was stopped last month at the Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand and was found to have 8 grams of weed.

Lil Wayne has been Twitter hacked. The Young Money leader, who typically keeps his presence on the social networking site to a minimum, suddenly started posting dozens of bizarre and uncharacteristic messages Sunday afternoon (Jan. 16) to more than a million followers. It quickly became clear that Weezy wasn't behind the errant tweets, but that didn't stop the hacker from doing some damage.
