The "Southpaw" soundtrack, executive produced by Eminem, has arrived.
Whether you've been listening to Thundercat for years or just now hearing his name mentioned alongside Kendrick Lamar's, there is an undeniable mystique about this bassist / singer virtuoso. Born Stephen Bruner in Los Angeles, Thundercat is currently making serious waves in the worlds of hip hop, jazz, R&B, and funk.
Does Drake Season ever end? The rapper continues to keep a chokehold on the rap game, from his participation in Apple Music's Beats 1 radio, to his co-sign remixes, to his features, the rapper can seemingly do no wrong. Following the debut of his anticipated "Energy" music video, he hinted at a Views From The 6 release date which has yet to be confirmed.
After starring in the massively successful Furious 7, Tyrese is getting ready to drop another new LP. Not only that, but his new project is set to be accompanied by a book, documentary, and short film (with Jennifer Hudson). For now, we have some news on the musical part of the endeavor, as Tyrese has shared both the artwork and official tracklist for the album.
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.
Future's DS2 album just dropped, and you probably spent all weekend taking in the rap/R&B hybrid in. If you paid attention, in any capacity, you probably noticed the drug references peppered in just about each and every song. Of course, lean is what gave the album its title, but there is tons of coke, molly, weed, and prescription pills in these tracks.
Trae Tha Truth, who celebrated "Trae Day" in Houston yesterday, is following that up on Friday with the release of his new studio effort, also titled after himself, Tha Truth.
How the hell did we make it through fifty percent of 2015 already? June has seemingly crept up out of nowhere, marking the halfway checkpoint of a year that, so far, has been ripe with exceptional releases from some of hip-hop’s brightest emcees.
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.
Kool John and P-Lo have proved themselves to be something of secret weapons within the HBK crew, each showing great promise with their respective projects (Shmop City and MBMGC2), but not earning the same level of recognition as the group's frontrunners, Iamsu! and Sage The Gemini.
Chance The Rapper manages to lead a pretty private life, despite his continually-increasing fame. He rarely gives interviews, shares details about his personal life, or participates in beefs or gossip, but today, he let us in on a big new development in his life: he's about to become a father.
In the world of rap, “raunchy music video” is almost always code for “ass-shaking fiesta.” Thus, when narrowing down this list from 30+ videos to 10, I was forced to take multiple criteria into consideration. Is the song any good? Was it popular?
The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011. March, August and December each held a release date for this dude who was mixing sounds of electronica, hip-hop, dubstep, R&B, downtempo and soul in a way that had never been done before.Well, it worked.

The numbers are in for The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty and they do not look good; T-Raww's latest album garnered a paltry 2,200 sales in its first week.
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.
Nowadays the lines are becoming blurred as to who is a rapper and who is a singer. Not only are genres being bent in different directions, so that it's not uncommon to find an EDM influence (or folk, if it's Yelawolf) in a rap song and vice versa, but vocals are being bent in every which way as well.
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.
Well here’s some good news for Earl Sweatshirt fans. The Odd Future member is taking his talents on the road in support of his latest album, I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t go Outside.
Kevin Gates Talks On Prison Life, Tattoos & The Time He Got A Brick With Elvis' Face On It Apr 2, 2014 at 05:20pm 122,239 Views
Kevin Gates recently dropped off By Any Means, a free album that was also available on iTunes and managed to debut at #17 on the Billboard 200. Gates is very open in his lyrics, and so if you are a fan you probably know quite a bit about his personal life just from listening to his music. Nonetheless, there is still some mystery surrounding Gates.
While Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels kept their relationship private for years, the breakup has been a much more public affair. With the release of The Pinkprint, Minaj addressed her feelings for Safaree for the first time on record, and since then there's been plenty of back-and-forth on social media.

Last night during the Bristow, VA stop of The Pinkprint tour, Meek Mill apologized to Nicki Minaj in his first public appearance since his now-infamous Twitter tirade against Drake.
It looks like Travis Scott fans are going to have to wait a little longer for his highly anticipated debut album Rodeo. While we thought the album would be dropping before August, which Travi$ had confirmed a couple weeks back, it appears that he’s had a change of heart and is still working on it.
The Instagram accounts of Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj strongly indicate that the rap power couple has split. Nothing is confirmed but it's not looking good for ol' Meek. Just recently we were wondering if they were engaged. So much for that. It's possible that they were considering it, that their love was so passionate that it flamed out that much harder.
