    YelaWolf is not happy with Macklemore. This weekend, both rappers performed at the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal, Canada. All was well until Yela was approached by a fan for a photo. The rapper obliged the fan, but took interest in the festival-goer's shirt. Catfish Billy, who has been pushing his deer logo for some time now, assumed that the shirt was one of his own, but it turned out to be a Macklemore tee, which also happened to use a deer as its logo.

With the decrease of hip-hop album sales forever waning, this isn't horrible, but it isn't the "classic" numbers French may have been expecting.

    This week we saw Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience break another record, after first topping Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in first week sales, it became the first record in 2013 to crack one million sales, going platinum just two weeks after it dropped. On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to his past LP sales.
