The Week In Pop: John Legend Reaches Peak Normalcy

Is he really a legend or isn't he? There's no doubt John Legend is a music industry power-player, the kind of safe yet pliable talent who moves in many circles, who appeals to many demographics, who's such a lock to appear at the Grammys every year that he inspired this genius tweet from our ow… More »

Major League Lacrosse: “Jay Z Would Not Last One Minute On A Lacrosse Field”

When Jay Z attempted to subliminally diss Drake by calling him "soft as a lacrosse team" on DJ Khaled's new posse cut "They Don't Love You No More," my first thought was that lacrosse is one of the most violent sports imaginable. It's basically 22 people running around battering each other with sticks. You… More »

DJ Khaled – “They Don’t Love You No More” (Feat. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana)

DJ Khaled has been an A-list rap fixture for the better part of a decade, even though he doesn't really do anything except yell. I have no idea how he keeps lining up big stars for his songs, but he keeps doing it, and now he's done it again. "They Don't Love You No More"… More »

Beyoncé & Jay Z Announce On The Run Tour Dates

Beyoncé and Jay Z have been a couple of roughly equal fame for so long that I'm surprised it's taken them this long to launch a major co-headlining tour. Maybe they didn't want to have the uncomfortable "who goes on first?" conversation. In any case, they've presumably figured out that question now. After a few… More »

LeBron James – “Fuckwithmeyouknoigotit (Freestyle)”

Back in the mid-aughts, hip-hop mixtape culture was driven by MCs aiming to one-up each other by freestyling (or "freestyling") on other people's beats. Lil Wayne was the king of this particular conceit, and his effortless genius inspired seemingly every professional basketball player of note to drop some bars over a hit rap instrumental. Alle… More »

Jay Electronica – “We Made It” (Feat. Jay Z)

Last year, Drake heard a track on a recent Soulja Boy mixtape and freestyled over it, and the result was "We Made It," arguably the most purely fun song of Drizzy's entire career. Meanwhile, the reclusive rap cult hero Jay Electronica reemerged last week with a new song called "Better In Tune WithMore »

Did you know the reigning American Idol champion's album is out this week? Maybe the better question is: Do you know who the reigning American Idol champion is? Candice Glover is quite alright, so I hope your answer is yes, but I suspect it's no. More »

Grammys 2014: GIFs & Videos

The Grammys aren't about Grammys -- the vast majority of them aren't even given out during the televised ceremony. (UPDATE: Here's who won, though.) No, the Grammys are about the performances, and this year is looking pretty stacked. Here we'll be posting videos of the live sets including Daft Punk (with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers,… More »
