Kanye West Claps Back At Tyler, The Creator By Beating Kim In A Race

Tyler, The Creator Unveils New "Adolf Trump" Golf Wang T-Shirt
Tyler, the Creator has been known to provoke controversy with his Golf Wang fashion line. Last May, he created a T-shirt for the brand that was adorned with a huge neo-Nazi symbol that happened to be rainbow-colored as well. His seeming intent was to hijack the symbol (the logo of White Pride Worldwide) and have it suggest a pride for equality instead of seclusion.

Views From The 6 is (hopefully) in sight for April, and A$AP Ferg and ILoveMakonnen both should have new material out in the next few weeks, but March is definitely looking like a down month for hip hop's upper echelon.

We got an extra day of February this year, and while there aren't quite as many brand new tracks on that week's top ten list as the one that preceded it, we still got over 50% turnover.
