There are only two guarantees in life; death and taxes. Actually, make that three. When you're doing it as big as Young Jeezy and T.I., you're guaranteed to make "Fake Ass M*thaf**kas Envy." F.A.M.E., the latest single off...Read More
With the release of his sophomore set just around the corner, Wale has stepped into the Booth with another fresh leak off the project. On Slight Work, the Washington, D.C. heavyweight and G.O.O.D. Music colleague Big Sean go...Read More
This sounds about right. Nah, not the fact that Common is dropping his ninth studio album. No, not the fact that No. I.D. did the damn thing. But hearing something that sounds like a fleet of God-like beings emerge on the...Read More
Though the title of Rick Ross' fifth studio album suggests a veiled threat, the twin singles he unleashed upon the Internet yesterday were more amorously focused: You're the Boss saw Young Money heavyweight Nicki Minaj...Read More
We’re a long way from Pusha T rhyming over Neptunes beats as a part of the Clipse. Case in point, today’s release What Dreams Are Made Of, a cut that sounds much more Lex Luger-ish than Hell Hath No Fury-esque. Clearly...Read More
As they all say, real gentlemen (and ladies) never kiss and tell. On the latest single off DJ Drama's forthcoming solo set, J. Cole and Chris Brown assure female fans that they'll keep it Undercover, showcasing their smooth...Read More
