Beef, or at least, legal issues, appear to be brewing between two Atlanta upstarts, Father and Key! Both artists rose to prominence last year, alongside ILoveMakonnen, off the strength of their collaboration "Look At Wrist." Key! was one of the founding members of Two-9, although he parted ways with the collective before they signed with Mike WiLL Made It.
Outside of last year’s 3-song package, R&B singer, Miguel, has been extremely quiet when it comes to new music. Well good new fam, it looks like that maybe changing soon as Miguel's next album is reportedly right around the corner.
Before Kendrick Lamar raised the bar with good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kanye West walked with Jesus, and the deadly East-West Coast rivalry, there was a young kid observing life and crime through his project window.

Since 2011, Drake and The Weeknd have dominated the thriving hip-hop/R&B scene in Toronto, though their relationship hasn't always been squeaky clean. Now, with The Weeknd's new album out today, and Drake's following soon after, the spotlight has never been brighter. Will Drizzy and The Weeknd continue to feed off each other? Or will the two finally go their separate routes.
Madonna and Drake making out at Coachella was low-key pretty hot. And while it seemed at the time like Madonna enjoyed it infinitely more than Drake, she expressed regret last night while answering fan questions for an online stream called "Live with Romeo's: Saturday Night Online."

Last night, Revolt claimed that, in addition to new projects from Tyler, The Creator and Young Thug, next week would bring us Meek Mill's long-awaited Dreams Worth More Than Money. Tweeting out April 14th (next Tuesday) as the drop date, Diddy's media company has now been contradicted by Meek himself. My album coming when I say that ain't true stay down its coming!
A$AP Rocky’s relatively short career in the rap game has been one filled with high praise. His debut mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP, received exponential buzz solely off the strength of “Purple Swag,” and it was more so off the strength of the visual, which went viral (visuals have become a key component to Rocky’s career).
ASAP Rocky's "A.L.L.A." & Boosie's "Touch Down 2 Cause Hell" First Week Sales Jun 2, 2015 at 06:44pm 46,859 Views
ASAP Rocky's first album arrived after "Fuckin' Problems," still the rapper's biggest single to date, so when A.L.L.A. was designed as a vessel devoid of hits, big numbers were not necessarily expected.Nevertheless, Rocky's Dangerdoom and Yams-helmed sophomore effort has moved a considerable number of copies, selling 116,131 units in traditional sales and 143,483 with streams.

This week saw a range of debuts from a range of artists. The top entry within rap and R&B went to Jason Derulo who slid in at number four, just under Rocky who managed to have another strong week. A little farther down Chicago drill hero Lil Durk put his debut album in at number 14, and Dom Kennedy quietly slipped in at 23.
King Louie speaks the truth: “They say you can make it anywhere, if you make it in Chicago.” The city notoriously known as Chiraq has been long overshadowed by gang violence, and those fortunate enough to make it out the trap are considered heroes. You know the statistics; Chicago has more murders than the war in Iraq. To cope with the violence, the city’s youth created drill music.

The rumors were indeed "kinda" true. Instead of a free mixtape though, Drizzy Drake decided to come through and surprise us with a brand new album called If You’re Reading This Its Too Late.
We're in midst of a major shift in hip-hop right now, where rappers are taking matters into their own hands. Major labels like Interscope, Def Jam, and Atlantic Records seem to be having less control over their artists. The tide is changing, and the result is a mainly positive one. Fans are receiving music how they want, when they want, from their favorite artists without the major-label hassle.

50 Cent doesn't like to be messed with. Recently, gossip site MediaTakeOut got a hold of a scene from the rapper's Starz TV show, "Power," and seeing that it was a sex scene starring actress La La Anthony, the site decided to post it up early.
This past Christmas Eve marked two years since Pro Era member Captial Steez's tragic death, and since leaving us, he's been sorely missed, especially by his bro Joey Bada$$. To commemorate his late friend, the Pro Era honcho is launching an annual event called "Steez Day" to benefit the rapper's family.
Listening to Killer Mike talk, or rap, for one minute should be enough to convince you he's a born political leader. While he's always been very vocal about his views, Mike has never attempted to enter politics, but it seems the day has finally come.
Chris Brown may not be an official member of the Bloods, but he's gotten the OK to throw up an L.A. set's gang signs. In response to a video Brown posted on Instagram wherein he references the Fruit Town Piru set with a series of hand gestures, a member of the gang has told TMZ that, while Brown is not an initiated member, he's affiliated enough to use the gang signs without repercussions.
"Free Gucci" Anthems: 14 Tracks That Call For Gucci Mane's Freedom Jun 23, 2015 at 12:37pm 10,598 Views
Yesterday, we got wind of a rumor that Gucci Mane might be a free man(e) come July 11th. The 1017 rapper's been incarcerated since September 2013-- first for a probation violation, then for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon-- and although he's been able to drop more music than arguably anyone else during these past 21 months, his presence has been sorely missed in the rap game.
This week was wild. We got to hear new albums by Miguel, Vince Staples, King Los and Tyga, great new tapes from Boogie and Tory Lanez, and some true heat in the form of singles from Future, Meek Mil and The Game. What's more, we got the stacked tracklists for Meek's Dreams Worth More Than Money and Migos' YRN Tha Album, and quite a few crazy news stories to boot.
Part of the rapper lifestyle means lots of travelling, lots of fans and/or groupies, and hardly any time to settle down and wife up. Thus it may not come as a surprise that rapper seeds often get sprinkled across the states, and often times, they've got multiple baby mamas.
