Rocky’s album, according to Soundscan has just charted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts with 138,503 units sold in the first week.
Come on East coast, there has been a lot of talk of about wanting your spot back. If you want some shine I’d say 2013 is your best chance in a long time. I believe Frenchie is up next and there are high expectations for Pusha T. Meanwhile, salute to the South for holding me down the last couple of years. This may sound harsh but if I were left only with what the rest of the industry has been pushing, I may have lost interest a long time ago.
Next Up ….
Angela Yee let some insider info leak during an interview with Vado. Word is MMG is courting Juelz Santana and that DJ Khaled’s ‘We The Best’ is courting Vado. Coincidence that both have new mixtapes and coming material?; come on playboy you know better than that. Nothing increases the budget during bargaining like a healthy buzz on the streets.
Remember Busta Rhymes has an album coming with CMB, French Montana with Bad Boy and the Lox and Wu-Tang are rumoured to be releasing projects soon!
This song was an immediate favourite the moment I heard it. Pusha definitely returned the favour nicely for Dream’s feature on his single. Enjoy.
Very few are creating visually artistic music videos on consistent in Hip Hop like Roc Nation (Not sure if Kanye is still signed under Jay but whatever). This video does not fall short of that standard. The imagery is powerful and the message is designed to be discussed no doubt. Its time to let the art speak for itself.
NaS drops another jewel in the vein of “I Can”. I can’t wait for his new album!
This reminds me of NaS’ album series by a similar name. I haven’t listened to it yet but Fif rarely lets me down.
Apparantly 50 is promising his album in July. Just in time for summer.
Cash Money/Young Money started flexing it’s roster’s muscle with DJ Khaled’s new video Take It To The Head. Colin Tilly went hammer on the video.
Ice Cube has made something really dope; we should support it. Read about it below.
Director Ice-T takes us on a journey to explore the roots of Hip-Hop from the beginning to the cultural phenomenon it’s become today in Something to Nothing: Art of Rap. The documentary features appearances from Kanye West, Eminem, Nas, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Common, DJ Premier, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Bun B, MC Lyte and plenty more. Here’s our first preview of the upcoming film which hits theatres on June 15. Looks like it’s going to be a good watch.
