Macklemore drew a lot of ire from the hip-hop community for posting a screenshot on Instagram of his apology text to Kendrick Lamar for taking the Best Rap Album win at the 2014 Grammy Awards. List Drake under that list of detractors.
Today (Feb. 10), the hip-hop community is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Kanye West's debut LP 'The College Dropout,' which is considered one of the most important and influential hip-hop albums of the past 10 years. The occasion is big enough to make West break his Twitter silence.
Danny Brown is known for his raw sense of humor. That's not all there is to him though. Fans who heard the first half of his 'Old' album and the second half of the 'XXX' LP know there's a darker side to him. That part of Brown showed itself in a Twitter rant today (Feb. 10).
It's a common known fact that a lot of people didn't believe in Kanye West when he first made that transition into a credible rapper, including frequent collaborator Jay Z. Pusha T wasn't immediately pro-West either.
The MMG takeover is coming this spring when heavy hitters Rick Ross and Meek Mill deliver their respective LPs. While not much is known about the latter's new album, Ross' 'Mastermind' will arrive next month. The head of the clique has just released the album's tracklist, and from the looks of it, this is one project to look forward to.
It's not official yet, but the news of the week is DMX taking up George Zimmerman's challenge to meet him in the boxing ring. The rapper spoke on-camera for the first time since the announcement when a FOX News crew caught up with him.
This is part of the reason why winning a Grammy is such a big deal. In addition to acting as validation, a Grammy win or performance can lead to a sales boost in the weeks following the ceremony. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are the latest artists to reap the rewards.
Iggy Azalea's debut album, 'The New Classic,' arrives on April 14 and the rapper is keeping her name in the headlines before its release. She followed up a remix with the new song 'Fancy' featuring Charli XCX and now she showcases more of her rhymes on T.I.'s 'Hell You Sayin,'' which features Hustle Gang members Young Dro and Travi$ Scott.
