Floyd Mayweather has had his share of beefs with hip-hop artists over the past few years (including a major riff with T.I. over the past few weeks), but perhaps no battle has lasted as long as that between him and G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent.
Rappers are constantly deifying themselves, some more specifically than others. Lil B is the Based God, Smoke DZA, the Kushed God, Gucci Mane, the Trap God, Eminem, the "Rap God", and Kanye West is just "a God".
Ah, Gucci Mane. One of the most controversial figures in Atlanta hip-hop, his extracurricular activities and legal struggles often overshadow his actual music, especially when he's wylin' out on Twitter for the whole world to see.
Two days back we had an article about the origins of certain flows, and some of our ever reliable commenters took it to be some sort of ranking of the best flows, which was not the case. The entire point of the article was to point out that some flows are influenced by region, and some by other artists.
Soooo, I was assigned an article about tracing the origin of a lot of the flows in hip hop to different regions around the country. Originally, I thought that would be fairly easy to do, and to a certain extent it is, but the article really went in a different direction the more research I was doing.
It's pretty common knowledge that Migos became widely popular after Drake hopped on their "Versace" record, and borrowed what many now pinpoint as the Migos flow. It's a choppy flow that we've seen take on different shapes and forms over the past year depending on who borrows it.
For the few gossip hungry hip-hop fans who have been anxiously anticipating Tip's comments on what instigated the fight between him and professional boxer Floyd Mayweather, it looks like you're going to have to wait indefinitely.
Nicki Minaj may be able to retire from music and live comfortably off her image. According to a new report by TMZ, Minaj was paid the sum of $50,000 by boxer Floyd Mayweather just to show her face at his daughter's 14th birthday party.
A scuffle involving both T.I. and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather broke out at a Fatburger in Las Vegas yesterday, and while we got a pretty in-depth recounting of the incident from Floyd, T.I. has been silent on the matter.
As you probably saw, Lil Wayne had the opportunity to escort Floyd Mayweather to the ring where he fought Marcos Maidana this past Saturday night. Weezy F also performed his new single "Believe Me" for the very first time while walking Mayweather to the ring.
With Waka Flocka Flame’s newest album set to come out later this year, the Atlanta rapper has released a mixtape to hold us all over in the meantime. The tape, Re-Up features all-star collabs and on-point production.
On paper, hip-hop and opera seem like completely different styles of music, but many producers have shown us otherwise. Using dramatic, often high-pitched vocal samples, they add a theatrical element to rap tracks.
Waka Flocka is not necessarily known for his vulnerability, but our heart has gone out to him since his brother's all-too-recent passing, last December. When he sat down with WKYS, he spoke about how his life is different now, saying:
While Rick Ross just purchased a massive mansion in Georgia and is prepared to move on in, Flo Rida is having some issues with his home purchase dating back to 2009. The pop star says he was scammed by the home owners, who took his payment and never sealed the deal.
Waka Flocka has a couple of projects in the works, but the most eagerly anticipated has to be his upcoming sequel to Flockaveli. It looks as if the release date may be approaching, as Flocka has revealed some new tour dates in support of the project.
Yesterday the fans voted on The Alchemist's first single off The Cutting Room Floor 3, which happened to be the Action Bronson & Roc Marciano-featured "Pool Hall Hustlers." Today, the producer offers up another gift to his fans with a full album stream for his new album.
It appears that Alchemist is gearing up to release the third installment of his mixtape series The Cutting Room Floor. Today, the dj/producer unveiled the official tracklist for the upcoming project, and it doesn’t disappoint.
