Ever since he popped up on Pusha T's "Blocka" in 2012, Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan has become a favorite of rappers from Drake to Snoop Dogg, the latter of whom recruited him for a guest spot on Reincarnated.
Since giving the world Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Clipse in the late nineties/early 2000s, the Virginia Beach/Norfolk area hasn't really been a hotbed for hip hop talent. Well allow DP, a 20-year-old newcomer from the area, to change that.
Shortly after her appereance on The Breakfast Club, where the G.O.O.D singer dished all the details (perhaps too many) on her ex-fiancee Brandon Jennings, Teyana Taylor unleashes a new single "Maybe" with Pusha T and Yo Gotti (also premiered by Power 105.1).
Young Money Yawn has been on our peripheral radar, but today he's really making a splash with his single "Shout Out To Papi." For those not familiar with the rapper, Young Money Yawn comes from Norfolk, Virginia, and while he's had rap affiliations for quiet some time (he's been friends with Pusha T since Clipse days),
Future is lightyears ahead of his time. Since touching down in 2012 with his Epic Records debut album Pluto, the Freeband Gang founder has continued hustling as an artist. The sloppy, melodic flow Future introduced on Pluto has been used by virtually every trapper who’s poppin’ today, and U.O.E.N.O. it.
While he just dropped his debut album just last year, Pusha T is already preparing the follow up. King Push will reunite Pusha with The Neptunes, who soundtracked Clipse's official debut album Lord Willin'.
August Alsina's debut album, Testimony is out tomorrow, and before it's official release, we get one more track from the album.
Drumma Boy supplies the beat for "FML", a mid-tempo number which comes complete with an assist from Pusha T. No word on whether this is planned as the next single from the project.
Even though he had already squashed rumors of a new Clipse album last month, No Malice was recently asked about the project again in an interview with Rapzilla at SXSW. His answer was no different this time around, and this should definitely put all hopes of a new Clipse album to sleep.
