Ciara has been showing off her very large belly lately, and it was finally time for her to deliver very early Monday morning. According to the NY Post, Future's fiancee gave birth to a baby boy in Los Angeles in the wee hours of the morning.
This week the hip-hop underground proves you don't need to be mainstream to top the Billboard 200, at least these days. Two mainstays within the underground movement debuted within the top 10 of the Billboard charts this week.
On April 26, 1994, OutKast released their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. The Atlanta duo began a festival tour to celebrate this twenty-year anniversary at Coachella several weeks ago, and will be performing over forty dates this year.
This week three new rappers entered the Billboard 200, with Future's Honest topping them all sales-wise (we'll let you be the judge on the music). Asher Roth, who has calmed way down from his College Rap days, moved under 10,000 units with his new album RetroHash, released independently.
The projections for Future's Honest and Iggy Azalea's The New Classic had us all thinking that the Australian bombshell's debut album would outsell Future's sophomore effort. The numbers are in today, and this is not the case.
Future has been on an interview run these days, so there's no lack of promo for Honest. During his recent in-depth sit-down with Elliott Wilson we learned that Future is looking to drop the long-delayed and forgotten project Future Hendrix later in 2014, consisting of records that didn't make the cut for Honest.
Future is having his moment right now, with the release of his sophomore LP Honest and an overload of interviews with the ATLien. While the LP isn't expected to move quite as much as Iggy Azalea's The New Classic, it seems to be receiving more favorable reviews than the latter.
Future just released his new album, Honest, this week, and while it's got its share of ballads, much of the record has a more aggressive tone than fans may have been expecting from it's pre-delay rollout.
It seems that every time Future talks about his role in allegedly writing "Drunk In Love" it becomes more convoluted. The controversy began when Fewtch debuted his song, "Good Morning" -- which bears quite a resemblance to "Drunk In Love" -- live at SXSW.
Iggy Azalea's The New Classic and Future's Honest both hit shelves yesterday, on April 22nd. The albums are vastly different and both attract a different kind of rap fan. So who is able to sell more to their respective fans?
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 10 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
Future only dropped his sophomore effort, Honest, today, but he's already setting his sights on another album, to also drop in 2014. It's hard to believe, since Honest itself took so long to roll out (two years), but this is what Future says in a new interview with Atlanta’s V-103.
Future is finally getting ready to release his sophomore album, Honest on April 22nd. The album is set to feature guest appearances from Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, Young Scooter, Drake, Andre 3000, Pusha T, Pharrell, Casino, and more.
