This week remains fairly unexciting, as Pharrell manages to climb up the charts while Rick Ross descends, and Pharrell picks up pace sales-wise too. YG's My Krazy...

    Kendrick Lamar has definitely been on his feature game this year. Appearing on songs from Miguel, 50 Cent, Robin Thicke, Dido, and more, sometimes it wasn't clear whether or not K. Dot was entirely excited about the appearances, or was well-deservedly cashing in on his popular demand. In a new interview with Life + Times, Kendrick argues for the former, revealing that he will not do a feature if...

    50 Cent seems to be making amends with his former New York rivals. A week or so back, we saw Fif getting on a track with Fat Joe, which many thought would be out of the question, based on their past differences.

    Lil Wayne may be known for his metaphors and similes, but unlike Shakespeare, he's got a pretty foul mouth to go with them. Nevertheless, a Florida school teacher decided Weezy would be a good subject to assess different forms of wordplay when the old world poets were confusing her students.

You may have noticed though, that the cover headline says "With Kendrick Lamar & Black Hippy...TDE Rap's Illest Crew," thus making it seem like Black Hippy is a separate entity from K. Dot.
