Nicki Minaj made a big appearance on Good Morning America this morning, performing a pair of songs and sitting down for an interview to discuss the recently released VMAs Video of the Year noms, from which her "Anaconda" video was conspicuously absent, and her Twitter confrontation with Taylor Swift.

Erykah Badu may not be as prolific as she once was with her own music, however she hasn't totally disappeared from sight either. It's been five years since the singer's last album, New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), but we've seen Ms.

As many artists tend to do these days, Gunplay has released a full album stream prior to his debut album's expected release at the end of the week. The long-awaited album, Living Legend, features the lead DJ Mustard-produced single "Wuzhanindoe" with YG, as well as appearances from Rick Ross, Curren$y, Stalley and more.

Chris Brown is in another tricky situation, but that's nothing new for the drama-attracting singer. Breezy had a performance in the Philippines on Tuesday night, and now he's reportedly being blocked from leaving the country because of a past gig he missed.
Even as little as nine months ago, no one would have really expected Birdman and Lil Wayne to beef.
Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more TV programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand.
Making his HNHH debut with Maxo 187 earlier this year, Houston's Maxo Kream impressed us with his trippy, trappy take on the city's classic sounds and his tireless, shape-shifting flow. Since then he's only stepped his game up, linking with Playboi Carti and Fredo Santana for a few fire collabs and touring with Father in his home state.
Yesterday, Complex unveiled a steamy photo shoot with Khloe Kardashian and the accompanying interview about the many trending topics surrounding her life (Kylie, Tyga, French Montana, Amber Rose etc).
