Young Thug Will Hold The "Barter Six" Release Party In Hollygrove Apr 15, 2015 at 11:57am 25,034 Views
Young Thug is causing new headlines every day as we prepare for Friday's release of Barter Six, no longer Carter Six due to legal threats--presumably from Lil Wayne's camp. Still, Thug continues to make moves that will likely offend devotees of Weezy and his seminal Carter album series.
On Friday, Young Thug pursued a policy of de-escalation after a Lil Wayne threw shade his way. "[Wayne] is my idol. I wouldn't ever in my life swap words with him or beef with him about nothing," he said on Instagram.
On Saturday, Lil Wayne performed at a low-key pool party in Miami, and though not initially reported, it seems as if he dropped some hints about the Free Weezy Album's release date. According to Red Bull, the company that sponsored the "Guest House" performance, Weezy said his album would be dropping next month.
Earlier today, araabMUZIK dropped a video for a trancey new cut called "Day Dreams," and now he's followed it up with the announcement of his new album.

Nicki Minaj Raises An Eyebrow To Christina Milian's "Pretty On Fleek" Shirts Mar 2, 2015 at 12:50pm 46,940 Views

Nicki Minaj is a highly quotable rapper, so when she works an uber-trendy word into one of her raps, chances are it'll end up on a t-shirt.
Hip-hop dance crazes have become a huge part of our American mainstream culture. These dances, like the “Shmoney Dance” and the “Wobble” have gone viral due to sites like YouTube, Vine and Vimeo streaming artists’ videos containing them.

On 2009's "Successful," a young Drake rapped, "Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it," creating somewhat of a mission statement for his career from there on out. In a way, those words were accurate, as Drizzy rarely (if ever) calls out anyone by name in his music, but more accurately, he's become known as the king of the sneak diss, the sultan of the subliminal shot.
Suge Knight will stand trial for murder charges stemming from a January hit-and-run incident that left one dead and one injured. The ruling was made by Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen today, with much of the focus landing on a testimony from one of the victims, Cle "Bone" Sloan.

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.

Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan have made some beautiful music together, so we were a bit disappointed to hear that Rich Homie Quan was planning to work on solo material rather than further pursuing the Rich Gang project. It seems as though Young Thug may feel similarly, according to a statement he made on stage during his Rodeo tour with Travis Scott.
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.

Since Meek Mill was freed from jail about a month ago, we haven't heard any new solo tracks, so hopefully that means he's been hard at work in the studio. Today, we get some form of confirmation via his Instagram, where he's been sharing snippets of new songs from Dreams Worth More Than Money, one of which apparently features Chris Brown. Check them out below. #2015
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.
