Rick Ross added some new ink to his face recently, as we've already concluded this is a rapper rite of passage. Although we already saw Rozay ink "Rich Forever" on his chin last year, he's stepped it up a notch in 2015 by getting not one, but seven new face tattoos.
Back in October, many industry insiders were surprised by the early sales estimates for T.I.'s most recent album, Paperwork. After a day of sales, forecasts had the album selling roughly 70,000 units in its opening week.
After almost five years without any major retail releases, Ludacris finally returns today with a brand new EP. Now available for free via Google Play, Burning Bridges finds the DTP head honcho teaming up with some of the game's biggest hitmakers for some of his most personal records to date.
We know that Rick Ross wasn't the most pleased when Timbaland decided to let us hear an alternate version of "Movin' Bass," which heavily featured his artist Tink (and was coincidentally much better than the version that landed on Rozay's album).
Today, Omarion is letting people everywhere listen in on his Sex Playlist. Although we don't know for sure if he's tested it out in its literal sense, the album (his first as an MMG signee) is sensual in nature.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Timbaland caused a stir last week when he leaked out what he called the "original version" of the Rick Ross and Jay Z track he had recently produced, "Movin Bass." Apparently, Rick Ross wasn't happy about the way he handled the situation.
Releasing two full length albums in one year is a rare feat most rappers will never accomplish, but in a sense, it's really nothing new for Rick Ross, who yesterday released Hood Billionaire, his second solo album of the year.
When Rick Ross announced his second album of 2014, Hood Billionaire, just nine weeks ago, he had many people wondering whether he'd be able to rush out a project so quickly during a year that's seen more than its fair share of album delays and push-backs.
