T.I. & Young Thug – “Off-Set”

T.I. and Young Thug seem like they should have nothing in common between their shared hometown of Atlanta and the whole they're-both-rappers thing. But they've got a rare on-record chemistry. Last year, they got together to make "About The Money," one of the year's best rap-radio hits, and a few assorted random tracks like… More »

The-Dream – “That’s My Shit” (Feat. T.I.) Video

If we're to believe R&B lothario The-Dream's new video for his T.I. collab "That's My Shit," the man known to his parents as Terius Nash goes to parties in mansions full of lingerie models and wolves. He also wears steampunk sunglasses and golden fangs and gigantic Amish-goth hats. All of this completely squares with… More »

The-Dream – “That’s My Shit” (Feat. T.I.)

The-Dream's latest single "That's My Shit" has been played on a few radio stations recently, and a rip has made its way online. The track was produced by Tricky Stewart and features a verse from T.I., who has collaborated a few times with The-Dream in the past. Along with "Fruition," it's expected to show… More »

Dej Loaf – “Try Me (Remix)” (Feat. Jeezy & T.I.)

The Detroit rapper Dej Loaf is currently getting famous on the strength of her twinkling head-buster hit "Try Me," though her great Sell Sole mixtape proves that there's more to her than that. "Try Me" already had a remix, with guest spots from Ty Dolla $ign and Remy Ma. But now she's moved… More »

T.I. – “We Want War” (Feat. Young Thug) Video

This year, the established Atlanta rap star T.I. and the young insurgent Young Thug have already teamed up on T.I.'s rap-radio hit "About The Money" and Young Thug's hyperactive "Eww Eww Eww" remix. They also got together for "We Want War," a track from T.I.'s Hustle Gang mixtape G.D.O.D. 2. In its new… More »

The Week In Pop: Bobby Shmurda Is A Pioneer, But Also A Traditionalist Of Sorts

Bobby Shmurda is a pioneer several times over. The Brooklyn rapper's breakout hit "Hot Nigga" -- or "Hot Boy," as it's known to the radio programmers who've roundly embraced it -- reached a new peak this week, climbing to #6 on Billboard's definitive singles chart, the Hot 100. It's the kind of mixtape track Lil… More »

The Week In Pop: Nick Jonas Is On The Verge Of Something Awesome

We needed the expert Miguel impersonation that is "Jealous" this year, if only because Miguel himself seems determined to tantalizingly dangle his own new music just out of reach. (These fleeting seconds were such a maddening tease! I realize this hard-to-get routine is a form of foreplay, but jeez.) Anyway: The biggest solo hit… More »

Snoop Dogg Should Probably Take A Break From Instagram

Last month, Snoop Dogg got into some trouble for a homophobic Instagram post that called out another user, which he deleted shortly after it started to gain some traction in the media. Over the weekend, he posted something else offensive: this time, it was a disparaging meme of Iggy Azalea. Azalea responded via Twitter… More »

T.I. – “Paperwork” (Feat. Pharrell)

Later this month, T.I. is back with his new album Paperwork, and he's sounded extra hungry on early singles like "About The Money," with Young Thug, and "Turn It." The album's title track, though, is a different story. It's a laid-back, soulful memoir, a fond, grizzled remembrance of a dangerous youth. The song… More »

Watch A Pigtailed Young Thug Join T.I. & The Roots On The Tonight Show

First things first: Look at Young Thug. Look at him. He has his bleached pigtails done up in those Princess Leia buns. He is wearing the tightest clothes that any rapper has ever worn in public. He has a pink flag hanging out of his pants. The man is a street-rap star, and he i… More »

T.I. – “About The Money (Remix)” (Feat. Killer Mike & Young Thug)

The first time I can remember hearing T.I., he was rapping alongside Killer Mike on Bone Crusher's "Never Scared," and they've linked up a few times over the years. And this morning, Killer Mike showed up to breathe some fire on "About The Money," T.I.'s new single with Young Thug. This sadly i… More »

Young Thug – “Eww Eww Eww (Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Zuse)

Atlanta rap freakazoid Young Thug continues to move ever forward, and now he's pulled the reliable move of getting an established star and a barely-known up-and-comer together for a remix. In this case, the remix is of his leftfield banger "Eww Eww Eww" (which should really be the title of every Young Thug song. The… More »

The Week In Pop: Presenting The Mid-2014 Pop Superlatives

Seeing as we gave you a mid-year countdown of 2014's best albums so far earlier this week, now seems like a good time to step back and assess the best and worst of what the pop sphere has given us this year. More »

The Week In Pop: Miranda Lambert, Lucy Hale, And Country’s Strange State Of Flux

The CMT Awards began with what passes for traditionalism these days: ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, beards out, grooving through "La Grange," a Texas blues-rock boot-scooter recorded 41 years ago. But before the opening medley was over, it quickly morphed into what passes for country these days. First came Florida Georgia Line, the… More »

T.I. – “About The Money” (Feat. Young Thug) Video

T.I.'s new video for his new Young Thug collab "About The Money" is a classic example of a director -- Kennedy Rothchild, in this case -- doing too much. It's a busy video: Haphazard switching between color and black-and-white, words flashing onscreen, a wolf and a lady vampire showing up for some reason. More »

T.I. – “About The Money” (Feat. Young Thug)

On the new track "About The Money," one of the old gods of Atlanta street-rap joins forces with one of the new. Last week, T.I. debuted the video for "Turn It," the fiery and intense first single from Paperwork, the album he's planning to release later this year. And now he's linked up with… More »

T.I. – “Turn It” Video

Jeezy's new banger "Me OK" is not this morning's only example of a longtime Atlanta rap star going on attack mode. T.I. has a new single called "Turn It," which sounds like an 808 being used as a jackhammer. He also has a new video for said single, which features Tip arriving via helicopter… More »
