Iamsu! – “Hella Good” (Feat. Tyga) (Stereogum Premiere)

Richmond spitter Iamsu! is back just a week after dropping the DJ Mustard-produced "Nothin Less." That song was slightly mellower than what Iamsu! usually turns out, and it was good enough to be featured as one of the five deadly venoms in The Week In Rap. The Cali emcee continues on his divergent… More »

Kid Ink, Tyga, Wale, YG & Rich Homie Quan – “Ride Out”

I love Fast & Furious movies more than I love most things in this cold, cruel world, but they sure do weird things with rap music. For a movie franchise that has given acting roles to multiple rappers (Ludacris, Bow Wow, Ja Rule, Tyrese if he counts), the movies have a weird flattening effect whe… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were a couple of big high-profile videos this week from artists I like, and they had big ideas, but they didn't move me much. The video for Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds" went for a certain classicist magazine-shoot simplicity, and while Rihanna turned in a hell of a charismatic performance, the… More »

The Week In Rap: Farewell To The Jacka

After three and a half years, Mixtape Of The Week is dead. In its place, we've got a new feature on Stereogum, one loosely based on Chris DeVille's Week In Pop column. The Week In Rap won't go as deep as that column does, but it'll give us a chance to go i… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

Tyga – “40 Mill” (Prod. Kanye West)

Tyga has shared a new track, which was co-produced by Kanye West, Mike Dean, and Tyga's own producer Jess Jackson, all of whom also apparently served as executive producers for his entire upcoming project, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. "40 Mill" is backed by opulent, oppressive drum sequencing and Tyga asserting, "I don't wanna… More »

The Week In Pop: From Diana Ross To Ariana Grande, A Pop History Of “I’m Coming Out”

Ariana Grande's sophomore set My Everything, out this week, is part of at least two long legacies. The more obvious of those is the tradition of children's TV stars stepping into the industry machine and walking out pop stars on the other side. The album is exceptional for what it is -- a compendium of… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Right now, our busiest comments section is a heated debate over whether a white lady is racist for dancing with black men in her music video and then being defensive about it. That is how indie rock, and every other form of media, works in 2014. You get used to it, I guess. Here'… More »

Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, & Tyga – “Senile”

A Young Money crew album is, almost by its very nature, disposable; even Lil Twist and Gudda Gudda seem to know that you don't necessarily need more Lil Twist and Gudda Gudda verses in your life. But a Young Money crew album is good for at least one thing: For creating a low-pressure safe space… More »

The Year In Molly

MDMA aka ecstasy aka Molly has a long, storied musical history and wizened drug rappers Danny Brown and Juicy J have been spearheading a new Molly movement since the dawn of the decade. But ever since spring 2012 -- around the time Madonna named her album MDNA and Kanye rapped "Somethin' 'bout Mary, she… More »

PSY – “Gangnam Style (Diplo Remix)” (Feat. 2 Chainz & Tyga)

Diplo will not let memes die, and now he's applied his remixing talents to PSY's K-pop goof "Gangnam Style," the most popular song in the history of YouTube. The frantically ping-ponging Diplo remix doesn't keep too many elements of the original track, but it does add some partied-out new verses from radio-rap heroes 2… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I wish I could name the trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus as the Video Of The Week, because holy shit that movie looks amazing. I just wish somebody could beam it directly into my brain this second; I'm not emotionally equipped to wait until June to see it. But there's pretty much no way… More »

Drake – “The Motto” Video (Feat. Lil Wayne & Tyga)

Drizzy cruises the Bay in the clip for Take Care bonus cut "The Motto," a track whose video version now features YMCMB's Tyga. Direct homage is paid to E-40, who nods in approval in the background. Do I need to get some batting gloves? Watch the video, directed by Lamar Taylor and Hyghly… More »
