The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2014

In 2014, rap's biggest names more or less sat the year out. Kanye West never got around to releasing that populist masterwork he's been promising. Drake threw a bunch of great songs up on Soundcloud rather than compiling those songs into an LP. Jay Z went on tour with his wife but gave us no… More »

Lil Wayne Calls Himself A “Prisoner” On Cash Money, Says Birdman Won’t Release The Carter V

Lil Wayne's career has been inextricably linked to Cash Money Records and co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams, a guy Wayne has always referred to as his "daddy." Birdman -- who used to rap under the name Baby -- signed Wayne as a teenager and played a humongous role in making him a star. He's routinely… More »

Last night, BET held its annual Hip-Hop Awards show, broadcasting from Atlanta with Snoop Dogg hosting. As usual, the big news items weren't the actual awards -- nobody really cares who won what -- but the performances. In the night's most dramatic moment, Common, Vince Staples, and Jay Electronica performed a remix of Common's track… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Young Thug, Birdman & Rich Homie Quan Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1

Birdman isn't the center of attention on the Rich Gang mixtape, but let's take a moment for Birdman anyway. For someone who, at least according to conventional wisdom, cannot rap, Brian "Baby" Williams sure has verses on a lot of classic songs. "Big Ballin'," "#1 Stunna," "Bling Bling," "Shine," "Get Your Roll On," "What Happened… More »

Download Rich Gang Tha Tour Part 1 Mixtape

Rich Gang is weird sort of amorphous rap crew that Cash Money magnate Birdman has been running lately; it's basically Birdman and whoever happens to be in the room with him at any given moment. Birdman's about to head out on tour with rising Atlanta weirdos Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, and now they've… More »

Meek Mill – “I’m Leanin'” (Feat. Travi$ Scott, Diddy & Birdman) Video

Certain comments-section mainstays may disagree, but I maintain that Dreamchasers 3, the latest burst of frantic rap intensity from Meek Mill, is one of the year's finest mixtapes. The tape opens with "I'm Leanin'," on which Meek and recent-vintage Kanye West protege Travi$ Scott go in hard over a furious Cardo beat and both… More »

Weeknd, Rick Ross Comment On Drake/Common Drama

A late entry to our 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011 list was the developing issue between Common and Drake, which may or may not have been based on general jealousy surrounding Serena Williams, of all people.

Birdman – “Y.U. Mad” (Feat. Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne) Video

Nicki tries on a Wayne impression -- she announces "I am the female Weezy" in the first line of Birdman's new single, and the attire matches the claim -- as she leads off "Y.U. Mad." Great beat on this one. Check out the video after the jump, featuring the requisite shots of Birdman flossing and… More »
