Kendrick Lamar To Debut "m.A.A.d" Short Film Next Month

Kendrick Lamar will debut his 14-minute-long film "m.A.A.d" (inspired by his album "good kid, m.A.A.d city") at L.A.'s Sundance NEXT Fest next month. Though hip-hop artists are currently prone to use the phrase "it's gonna be a movie" when talking about their next project, Kendrick Lamar's semi-autobiographical good kid, m.A.A.d city was one of the few to actually fit that description, detailing a day in the life of a South Central teen. Now it seems as if the project will literally be "a movie," albeit a short one, as Lamar will debut a 14-minute-long film entitled "m.A.A.d" at next month's inaugural Sundance NEXT Fest in L.A. Directed by Kahlil Joseph (who supplied Lamar's visuals for the Yeezus tour and has previously worked with Flying Lotus), the film is described as “a kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.” Apparently, Lamar assembled the film's cast from various street corners in L.A.

Wiz Khalifa Reveals "Stayin' Out All Night" Music Video Will Be Interactive & Features Tia Carrere

Wiz Khalifa says that after "Stayin' Out All Night" we'll get the single "Promises." It's been almost a week since Wiz Khalifa kicked off his annual summer tour run, "Under The Influence", bringing along Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Sage The Gemini, Iamsu!, Ty Dolla $ign and more. We were able to have our host Baker catch up with Wiz while he was on the road, and sit down for a quick interview about the forthcoming album Blacc Hollywood, plus a few weed questions (because Wiz Khalifa). After an early leak of Wiz's new single "Stayin' Out All Night" we received an official version of the record this past week. Speaking on the single, Wiz reveals to us that he's tapped Tia Carrere to appear in the music video (of "Wayne's World" fame). "Tia Carrere from "Wayne's World", shwwwingg," Wiz says as he reveals the music video's special guest. "Yeah I got her in the video. And it's an interactive video, so basically you're gunna be able to do so much different shit inside of this video, to make it your own video. It's crazy. So that's gunna be the next single and that's gunna be the next wave, and catch people off guard. They gon' be like, wow, Wiz did that. Look at the boys." Following "Stayin' Out All Night" it sounds like "Promises" will be the next single, with a music video having already been shot. ""Promises" is another good song," Wiz says. "Rico Love helped me write that shit, and it's produced by Jim Jonsin. And you know Rico, he goes in. So the video's amazing, it's real dope, it's got a good look." Watch the full interview below, where Wiz reveals that he wants to smoke a joint with Madonna.

Did Nicki Minaj Push Back Her Single Because Of An Upcoming Beyonce Remix?

Could we be seeing a Nicki Minaj feature on an upcoming remix to Beyonce's "Flawless"? Nicki Minaj had the entire internet extra thirsty earlier this week when she dropped off the bootyfull single art for her upcoming record "Anaconda", which was originally due out July 28th. Unfortunately, Nicki had a slight delay in plans and decided to push back the release date until August 4th, and explained we "will understand why before the week is out." Well, rumors are circulating tonight that the reason Nicki pushed back the release date was because Beyonce is about to drop off a new remix featuring the female YMCMB rapper. According to HipHopWired, a music industry source says Nicki pushed her single back in order to avoid it getting lost in the sure to be excitement of a new track with Beyonce. The rumored remix is for Beyonce’s song “Flawless”, and will feature a verse from Nicki Minaj. But better yet, MissInfo reports that its possible we hear Beyonce rapping her verse on this remix, and not singing it. So could we be seeing both Nicki and Beyonce delivering bars on one track soon? Hopefully these rumors are true, and we won’t have to wait too much long to hear the end result. Beyonce “Flawless (Remix)” featuring Nicki Minaj has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? Stay tuned fam, and we’ll keep you updated if any concrete information gets revealed. PillsNPotions ✔ @NICKIMINAJ Follow My darlingz, I've pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will… http://instagram.com/p/q9zYFir8Zq/ 2:08 PM - 27 Jul 2014

Fabolous Says "Loso's Way 2" Will Have Features From Chris Brown & Nicki Minaj

Fabolous reveals that he's been in the studio with Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown working on tracks for "Loso's Way 2." Though Fabolous said in May that his hotly-anticipated sequel to Loso's Way would be out this summer, it's looking more and more like that won't be the case. On the bright side, Loso just revealed two big features that will be on the project in a new interview with MTV. When asked if he's been working with Chris Brown recently (who guested on "Ready" with him last year), Loso replied, "We just worked on a joint for the new project. ‘Ready’ was kind of a buildup single to where we were going but I don’t think we were exactly ready — no pun intended. Me and Chris are friends and work together well... when I got this record I felt it was something that leaned in his direction. So I played it for him, he liked it and did it right there on the spot. What’s crazy about the record is it steered the direction of where the project is gonna go,” he added. “I think it’s definitely gonna coast the end of the summer out.” “I’ve worked with Nicki before and I reached back out to her as well, so we’ve got something in the works too,” Fab added. He also gave his thoughts on the singer/rapper/buttock icon's recent "Anaconda" artwork: “There was no way of escaping that on your Instagram timeline.” Watch the full interview below.

Curren$y Reveals Ab-Soul, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa & More Featured On "Pilot Talk 3"

http://http://thumbs.hh.ulximg.com/public/article/600_1406738235_curreny_in_rocksmith_8_42.jpg Curren$y speaks exclusively to HotNewHipHop about "Pilot Talk 3" features, an expected release, and leather sweatpants. Curren$y recently had a show out in DC, and we were able to catch up with him after the show for a sit-down about his highly anticipated Pilot Talk 3 album. In between Pilot Talk 3 discussions our host Baker and Spitta also had time to chat on the rapper's well-known obsession with old school cars as well as his complete dislike for leather jogging pants. The former Young Money rapper revealed who we can expect to hear on the forthcoming album, and after making it more than obvious his good buddy Wiz Khalifa would be on the project, he also revealed he's got features lined up from Ab-Soul, Action Bronson and French Montana. In another interview with I Got It 4 Free, Curren$y also said that it is possible Lil Wayne will have a spot on the LP. "I got Wiz on the joint, Ab-Soul, Action Bronson, I'm waiting on a verse from French but that's good as done. That's like my brother so that's cool. Cool & Dre did the bulk of producing so far on all the joints that's done," Curren$y tells us, before delving into production. "We got 30-something records right now. I'm not gunna double disc, I'ma do like 15, and whatever don't make the cut, I've developed such a relationship with Cool & Dre that that's my records anyways so we'll figure out a way to put it out." You won't be getting alllllll dat for nothing though. "Pilot Talk 3 is gunna cost," Curren$y says. "'Cause I put out enough free stuff, it's time to go to Best Buy and spend $10.99 with me." As for an expected release, the weed enthusiast says, "We workin' probably like October, November." We'll leave you with one final golden quote from Spitta on today's fashion trends: "I just don't wanna look like I'm waiting on a vampire fight. I just don't think a lot of the shit that's out is comfortable. So I don't have leather sweatpants. 'Cause sweatpants made outta somethin' else. That's cotton. So once you do leather, it's not sweatpants. Those are leather pants...or whatever you wanna call it, I dunno. I like basketball shorts, they got pockets. I can run fast, you know what I'm sayin."

Drake Surpasses Usher For Most No. 1s On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart

Drake makes Billboard history with the most no. 1s on their R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Drake broke a Billboard record this week, surpassing Usher for the most no. 1 records on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts since its inception 22 years ago. The news arrives as Lil Wayne's new single "Believe Me" featuring his YMCMB labelmate Drake enters the no. 1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Thus Drake nabs his 14th no. 1 record on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, passing Usher who previously held the record with 13 no. 1s. Lil Wayne isn't too far behind, with "Believe Me" acting at his 10th no. 1 single on the chart. Drake and Lil Wayne are preparing to embark on their joint tour "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" in the coming weeks, with the tour kicking off on August 8th in Buffalo. The full set of tour dates can be seen here. Congrats to Drake on his latest achievement.

Jay Z & Beyonce Reportedly Earning A Combined $84 Million From "On The Run" Tour

Jay Z and Beyonce are set to earn $4 million each per show on the "On The Run" tour. Rumors about a divorce continue to fly around Beyonce and Jay Z, and with that comes reports from NYPost's Page Six that Bey was shopping for a $21.5 million apartment in Chelsea without Jay. Although we cannot say if it is true for certain, if it is, that amount is nothing compared to how much the couple are raking in with their summer "On The Run" tour. Once again we have the NYPost to thank for digging up these numbers, but according to the gossip page, Hov and Bey are set to make $84 million by the end of the tour in September. To break it down a bit further, the couple are making $4 million each per show, while some stops are expected to make $5 million in sales. This isn't too surprising, as we already learned that the tour will likely become the second most successful tour of all time. Beyonce targeted all these rumors in a new Instagram post of Jay Z holding Blue Ivy, which she captioned "my favorite hue is Jay Z Blue." We'll keep you updated on the Jay Z/Beyonce drama/gossip.

Mike WiLL Made It Signs Two-9 To Eardruma/Interscope Records

Atlanta's Two-9 are the latest signees to Mike WiLL's Eardruma Records. Over the past few years, five piece Atlanta collective Two-9 have made a name for themselves as independent artists, and now it looks as though all the hard work has paid off. Today the group officially announced their signing to Mike WiLL Made It's new Interscope imprint, Eardruma Records. Having collaborated with the group a number of times since 2012 (most notably on the song "Everything"), WiLL is very stoked on Two-9: "There hasn't been a collective of creative coming out of Atlanta like Two-9 since Outkast," he said. "They have great energy, make dope music, and they're always trying to push things forward, not box themselves in. I respect their art, their grind, and their whole movement, and I'm excited to help them take their brand to the next level." Understandably, Two-9 is excited as well. Member Curtis Williams said, "I'm really excited to start the next stage in this video game called Two-9," and Jace explained the deal further: "We'd been entertaining offers from other labels, but it didn't feel right until now. We have a personal relationship with Mike WiLL already, and Eardruma, along with Interscope feels like the perfect place for us to take the next step in our career." Stay tuned for a debut album from the group (executive produced by Mike WiLL, naturally), and watch a video heralding their new deal below.

Timbaland Says "Opera Noir" Is His "Grand Finale"

Timbaland declares his forthcoming album "Opera Noir" his own "Purple Rain." It's been a long road for Timbaland's new album. After announcing a name-change from Textbook Timbo to Opera Noir in May, we haven't received any more updates on the album process. We've heard a few potential album leaks, including a "Bounce" demo with Jay Z, however nothing really official. Timbaland declares Opera Noir as his very own Purple Rain, referring to Prince's opus, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, also alleging it could also be his final project before bowing out and letting his own artists take the spotlight. "Yeah, this is my Purple Rain solo album that I'm going to put out. I have no features on it. It's called Opera Noir and it's the most innovative work I've ever done. It's all about truth and what's going on around us. It's about my personal truth: It's one of the things that MediaTakeOut will care about, but I'm telling you what happened. I'm telling you: At this point, this happened. I'm telling you at this date, I'm telling you that I did this. I'm telling you that she did this or he did that. And just how I look, dropping all my weight, and how I look like a whole different person now, you're gonna really understand. It's about truth and what the world is facing, and we don't even realize," the producer said during the new interview. When asked to clarify what he meant by "his Purple Rain", he says, "It's my grand finale. It's my voila. This is why you call me Timbaland. This is why you say I'm the greatest who ever did it." Does that mean it's his last project? "It could be, for like me doing solo, because it's not about me. It's about my artists, so you know, I'm just being the teacher. The people that I birth, I want to help them shape their careers because they have longevity. Mine, I'm at a stage where I want to enjoy my wife, I want to enjoy my family a little bit more. I just want to enjoy life. I worked so hard to get to this point that I haven't really sat down to enjoy life the way I should enjoy it."

Nicki Minaj Calls Out Eric Bellinger For Claiming To Handle Production On "Anaconda"

Nicki Minaj says that Polow Da Don and Da Internz were the only producers of "Anaconda", throwing shade at Eric Bellinger. Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" continues to serve up headlines and news-worthy articles. After getting a glimpse at the unaltered version of the single artwork this morning, Nicki took to Twitter to clarify who actually handled the production on "Anaconda." Following the release of the single artwork (the single was intended to drop on July 28th, but has since been delayed until August 4th), singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger stepped forward and spoke on the record, as he alleged that he had helped put the finishing touches on the beat alongside Polow Da Don and Da Internz. According to Nicki, this isn't true-- only Polow and Da Internz did the beat. Eric told MTV News that "she [Nicki] went crazy." He added, "Turn up. That's it. Just turn up. The realest turn up possible." Nicki called Bellinger "thirsty ass" on Twitter, tweeting, "There are only 2 producers on #Anaconda ~ Polow Da Don & Da Internz. No one else should be out here doing interviews about it. #ThirstyAss." What do you think is going on here? There are only 2 producers on #Anaconda ~ Polow Da Don & Da Internz. No one else should be out here doing interviews about it. #ThirstyAss — PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 29, 2014

Lil Reese Reportedly Arrested On Gun Charges

Lil Reese was reportedly arrested yesterday for felony possession of a firearm. Lil Reese recently stirred up some controversy when he posted a photo of a young child holding a gun on his Instagram account, as he FaceTimed with the kid (a screenshot can be viewed in the gallery above). The photo was later deleted, but it looks like Reese and his guns have caught up with him, as he was arrested last night on gun charges, according to XXL. There are few details on the arrest, but XXL reports that the rapper was arrested for felony possession of a firearm on July 28th, and is being held in Cook County jail. His bail has been set at $50,000. This isn't the Chicago native's first encounter with the law. The rapper was arrested for marijuana possession last July, a misdemeanor theft charge in June 2013, among other arrests. We'll update you on this story as more details arrive.

Nas Announces Release Date For Mass Appeal Compilation Album

Mass Appeal's first release, a compilation album featuring the likes of Boldy James, Bishop Nehru and Fashawn, will drop on September 2nd, according to Nas. Back in May, we announced that Nas' new Mass Appeal record label imprint would be releasing a compilation featuring the label's first signees. A few months later, a picture of the label is a bit clearer with the knowledge of Boldy James, Bishop Nehru and Fashawn's signing, and now we have a release date for the compilation. Volume one of an annual series of comps will drop on September 2nd (the same day as Jeezy's Seen It All) and will feature Nas alongside all three current Mass Appeal signees. According to HipHopDX, the comp will feature a cover of Gang Starr's "Mass Appeal" (the magazine/record label's namesake) by "Nas and friends of the brand."

Rich Homie Quan Says Drake Will Be On His Debut Album

Rich Homie Quan promises a Drake feature on his upcoming debut album, and says he's also trying to get Lil Wayne on it. Rich Homie Quan's buzz has definitely died down a bit since the hype surrounding "Type Of Way", but nonetheless he's now cemented himself as one of the new Atlanta rappers to watch out for, alongside the likes of Young Thug and Migos. Building off his mixtapes, Rich Homie is working on his debut album. While talking to HHS87, the rapper says that we can definitely expect the album before the year's end. Although details are scarce, including an album title, Rich Homie promises that Drake will be on the album. "You could never rush a title, it comes to you," the rapper said of picking an album title. "Beside Young Thug, the biggest feature..I'm working on Boosie's album, that's real big, when he first came home he reached out to me. Me and Drake been working," Rich said. "I told you Drake's one of my favorite artists. It came true, man. Drake WILL be on my album. Right now, I'm working on Wayne getting on the album." Check out the full interview below. He also discusses his affiliation with Birdman (whom he calls his uncle) and Rich Gang.

Childish Gambino Calls Out Drake, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q In Sydney Freestyle

Gambino is coming after some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Childish Gambino has never been one for fighting words, but apparently something was in the air this weekend in Australia. The California-born rapper performed at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Sunday night (July 27th) and left attendees with a show worth remembering. On top of unleashing hits off his two major studio albums Camp and Because The Internet, the emcee really turned heads with a lengthy unheard freestyle in which he calls out Drake, Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q, saying "I'm the best rapper, definitely Top 5. I cut their head off, that's every rapper living. That's Kendrick, that's Drake, that's Schoolboy, that's everyone. I don't give a fuck. I'll f*cking kill you n*ggas." Check out the full freestyle below (disses aside, it's pretty great). Shots are fired at 2:04. Is Childish Gambino really top five or has success gotten to his head? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

Dizzy Wright To Release Collaborative Project With Logic

More music from Dizzy Wright is on the way. Funk Volume's Dizzy Wright might be fresh off of a joint project with Bishop Nehru, but it seems the emcee shows no sign of slowing down. Stopping in with Bootleg Kev and Tampa, Florida's 94.1, the rapper has announced yet another collaborative project he's working on; this time with Maryland emcee Logic. "We want to do it too, we just haven't been able to come around to the time but eventually it's going to happen," Wright said of the project. "He reminds me that being positive is the right way to go. We going to do a project, we going to do a tour, we going to do everything." On top of this project, Wright is also working on his sophomore solo LP, which he confirms will have a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony feature. Check out the full interview(s) below.

T.I. Explains "Paperwork" Title, Says Album Is A Continuation Of "Paper Trail"

Atlanta rapper helps kicks off 93.7's Behind the Beat series. During an interview Devi Dev and Mr. Rogers of Houston’s 93.7, T.I. spoke about his upcoming album, the recent leak “Stay,” and perception that that song is about his apparently in-flux relationship with wife Tiny. On "Paperwork" being a follow up to "Paper Trail": “I think one of my most diversified albums and I guess the most commercially successful has been Paper Trail. I always wanted to do a continuation of that but without saying, ‘Part 2.’ I just tried to figure out another way to relate this next project to that one without making it a sequel. In thinking of other things that I guess had the word ‘paper’ in it, Paperwork was the most prominent title that jumped out at me. As I was getting to think about it, anything that you have that is authentic, let’s say a watch, a car, a phone, whatever it is, the certification of that authenticity is paperwork. Whether it’s a title for a car, deed to a house, a certificate for a Rolex. You gon’ have some kind of certification of authenticity. Me being an artist that’s been known to be authentic and making music that has been known to be authentic, the certification of it is Paperwork.” On "Stay" and rumored relationship issues with Tiny: “As much as I guess people would like to associate it with things that are personal to me, the way that it makes better sense in my mind is if I kind of remove myself from it and just listen to the record and imagine as though I was creating a fictional set of circumstances sprinkled with some reality in it. I guess it’s easier for me to conceptualize it that way. That way it don’t feel like people in my business.” T.I. has released four singles from Paperwork thus far. Check out "Stay," "No Mediocre," "About Tha Money" and "Turn It" right here. Meanwhile, you can view Tip's full interview with Houston's 93.7 below.

Wiz Khalifa Explains Why Miley Cyrus Won't Be On "Blacc Hollywood"

Wiz Khalifa speaks on the Miley Cyrus record that was cut from "Blacc Hollywood", and his creative partnership with Ty Dolla $ign. From earlier interviews, it seemed like a sure thing that Miley Cyrus would appear on Wiz Khalifa's upcoming album, Blacc Hollywood. However, when the official tracklist arrived, the singer's name was nowhere to be found. In a new interview with Billboard, Wiz explained Miley's absence, revealing it was simply the result of a clearance issue. “It didn’t get cleared,” said Khalifa, indicating that the instrumental was picked up by someone else before they got a chance to release it. “I think somebody else ended up paying for the beat, so that song didn’t make it.” The weeded-out rapper then spoke of his relationship with Ty Dolla $ign, a new Taylor Gang signee he's been collaborating with a lot recently. “We’re just both really, really creative,” he said of his songwriting partnership with Ty. “And that’s when the best things happen, when two people are at their best.” Blacc Hollywood, which will be Khalifa's fifth studio album, is out August 19th.

50 Cent Takes Jab At Floyd Mayweather On Instagram

50 Cent mocks Floyd Mayweather on Instagram, claiming Nelly "took [his] lady." Floyd Mayweather has had his share of beefs with hip-hop artists over the past few years (including a major riff with T.I. over the past few weeks), but perhaps no battle has lasted as long as that between him and G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent. According to 50, the beef began way back in 2012, when Floyd came up with the idea of a partnership between the two, asking the rapper to help him with Mayweather Promotions prior to his incarceration at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The only problem, 50 learned, was that Mayweather Promotions was virtually non-existent. As a result, 50 formed The Money Team (now SMS) Promotions, using his personal funds to secure fighters like Yuriorkis Gamboa and Andre Dirrell. When Mayweather was finally released from the Clark County Detention Center, however, 50 claims Floyd denied ever asking him for help with his promotional company, refusing to reimburse Jackson for money (upside of seven-figures) spent on the business venture in his absence. Since that day, the former friends have fired time-and-time again by 50, with Mayweather denying the beef. "I think 50 Cent is a great guy," Mayweather said earlier this year. "You can't be my friend on Monday and then not my friend on Tuesday. Real friends go through ups and downs. I can't say in November, a guy's my friend and I love him, and in December I hate him. Sometimes, things can be miscommunication. A lot of times, media can play a major role. Things can get said that's not true. Hopefully, his music can go back to the top. And hopefully, he does good in the sport of boxing."" Apparently, the feelings aren't mutual. Since Mayweather's statement, 50 has continues throwing jabs at the boxer, the latest in the form of an Instagram post mocking Mayweather for losing his former girlfriend to St. Louis rapper Nelly. "Nelly put this up@floydmayweather DAMN da nigga really took your lady Champ. It's @missjackson birthday. Smh." The post comes a few weeks after 50 attacked Mayweather for talking to T.I's wife Tiny on the same platform.

Cassidy Says Jay Z Set Up His Infamous Battle With Freeway

Cassidy speaks on his relationship with Jay Z, lyricism in hip hop, and the recent success of battle rap. Cassidy cut his teeth as a battle rapper, and the punchline-driven style has always had a heavy presence in his recorded material. In a new interview with VladTV, the Philly emcee criticized the current rappers for not being lyric-driven, and accredited the popularization of battle rap with fans seeking out bars. "Some people like Hip Hop for flows. Some people like Hip Hop for beats. I mean, I like that part too, but what overrules all that is lyrics, bars," said Cass. "That’s what I like more than anything. And I feel as though it ain’t enough of that. When I was younger I used to hear niggas saying shit that I had to rewind or lines that I’m like ‘Damn, that shit crazy.’ That it’ll work your mind and make you think. I don’t hear that like a lot now." The outspoken spitter than spoke of his theory that the recent success of battle rap events can be attributed to the lack of lyricism elsewhere. "That’s why the Smack battles and all these battles that people doing. Like URL, all these battles. That’s why they winning and the ratings going up on them jawns all the time because those artists are the only ones that’s really focusing on bars,” he explained. Finally Cassidy spoke of his relationship with Jay Z, revealing that while the two aren't exactly close, they did communicate about the battle Cass did with Freeway, which was one of Cassidy's big breaks, and as he revealed, was actually set up by Hov. “I mean, I wouldn’t consider him my homie or my friend, but we met a few times. We talked a few times, but I don’t got a relationship with him like that," he said. "The most time me and Jay Z spent around each other talking was the Freeway battle. He the one that set it up. It was me, him, and Swizz in the studio before it all went down. So, that was the time I really spent the most time around him. And really talked to him and all that shit. Was that time.” Watch the interview below.

Homeless Man Arrested For Stalking & Threatening Rihanna

A man has been arrested after trespassing on Rihanna's property and leaving aggressive messages for her. Many celebrities deal with crazed fans, but Rihanna seems to attract the home invading variety. Last year, a man was arrested for snooping around the singer's home in the Pacific Palisades, and this week, yet another guy was taken in when he repeatedly left threatening notes for Rihanna at her house in California. A homeless man named Kevin Mcglynn was caught on RiRi's premises on three separate occasions this month, thanks to the pop star's surveillance cameras. Each time he reportedly left letters that referred to her as a "bitch", and suggested that he would break into her mansion. This was on top of the 4 letters he sent via snail mail. On his final visit, Mcglynn also left his benefits card, which allowed authorities to zero in on him. He has since been arrested, and is being held without bail. He is reported to have multiple other trespassing offenses on his record. Mcglynn stated in court that Rihanna (as well as Jay Z and Kanye West) had stolen his "material".

Keyshia Cole Reveals "Point of No Return" Album Cover

After dropping off her DJ Mustard-produced single “She” a couple weeks ago, Keyshia Cole returns today to share the cover art for her highly anticipated album Point Of No Return. The R&B songstress trades her designer clothes for some ripped jeans, a white tank top, and shades as she stands alongside a deserted highway looking cool as ever. She recently talked to Fuse about her album, and had this to say about it: “There’s definitely more sexy songs on this album than I’ve ever done. I’m excited to see what the people think about that, so we’ll see how receptive they are to the album. I think it’s a great album and I feel like it’s one of my best albums to date.”

Wiz Khalifa Says Tyga Dropping Out Of The "Under The Influence" Tour Was "A Wack Move"

Wiz Khalifa calls Tyga out for not reaching out to him directly when he dropped out of the "Under The Influence" tour. Wiz Khalifa just kicked off the 3rd annual Under The Influence Tour, which features the stacked lineup of Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan, Mack Wilds, Sage The Gemini, Iamsu! and DJ Drama. The bill also boasted Tyga's name initially, but the rapper has since dropped out of the tour. In an interview with Power 99 FM, Wiz addressed Tyga's absence from the tour for the first time, and he was less than thrilled with the rapper's choice. "He didn't tell me at all," said Wiz, indicating that it was Tyga's "people" who contacted him about the rapper skipping out. "I felt like that was just corny. We're better than that." Wiz also wasn't satisfied with the reasoning for Tyga's opt out. "He said he's filming a movie and finishing up his album, but that's a wack excuse," he said, but stressed that he and T-Raww are still friends. "We cool, he's the homie, but that was just a wack move." Watch the interview below.

Nicki Minaj Responds To "Anaconda" Coverage, Rates Asses "Acceptable" & "Unacceptable"

Nicki Minaj responds to the media coverage of her "Anaconda" artwork. Nicki Minaj had the entire internet extra thirsty yesterday when she dropped off the bootyfull single art for her upcoming record "Anaconda", due out on July 28th. The artwork was picked up by hip-hop sites, of course, but it was also picked up by a ton of non-hip-hop publications, like Huffington Post. Asses are a dime a dozen if you know how to Google on the internet, but Nicki Minaj stirred things up more than the average bum could. She proceeded to take to Instagram last night to post photos of bare bottoms with the caption "Acceptable", before captioning her own bum on the "Anaconda" art as "UNACCEPTABLE." This could be referring to the loads of coverage the artwork received, and how the media deems smaller asses that are showing just as much skin as Nicki more "acceptable" than Nicki's own. She later tweeted, "Putting out some more #thotShit tmrw for the fuq of it. LMFAOOOOO. Thots out here showin puss lips but u mad at da kid." See some of her tweets below, and all the ass pics she deemed "acceptable" in the gallery above. PillsNPotions ✔ @NICKIMINAJ Follow Angelic. Acceptable.

Common Is No Longer On G.O.O.D. Music

Common reveals to Sway In The Morning he's not actually signed to G.O.O.D. Music anymore. Common's new album Nobody's Smiling was a joint effort with producer No I.D., but it seems their relationship has gone even further than that, and in the process, G.O.O.D. Music was sidetracked. Common revealed to MTV News that he's no longer officially on the G.O.O.D. Music label when it comes to business, rather, he's signed to No I.D.'s Artium imprint on Def Jam. Talking to Sway, Com revealed that Kanye West had absolutely no role in Nobody's Smiling, in fact Common just sent the LP to Ye recently. Common spoke on how it was No I.D. who really drove the project's direction this time. "I'm on Artium, G.O.O.D. Music that's still my family, Ye is my brother. Point-blank business-wise, Ye wasn't really like 'okay, let's go do this, let's go do this album.' It was like, 'I'm 'bout to go do this album Ye, we friends but if we ain't gonna create together it's all good, we still brothers.' I think his focus was somewhere else," Common explained. Common still said he was grateful for Kanye's friendship, which means more to him than a working relationship. Watch the MTV clip below. Has leaving G.O.O.D. affected Common's latest album at all? What do you think?

Reek Da Villain Leaves Busta Rhymes' Imprint To Sign With Birdman

Reek Da Villain explains that he's left Busta Rhymes' Conglomerate Imprint, and joined Rich Gang. Reek Da Villain's video for "Go Off" seemed like it could be a big break for Reek Da Villain, until it magically vanished off the internet. It turns out, that particular track (which featured guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Ace Hood, and Swizz Beatz) was somewhat of the tipping point for Busta Rhymes and Reek Da Villain's fall out. In a new interview Reek explains that Busta pushed to get the video taken down from WorldStarHipHop shortly after its release, while he felt that it should have been left as it was. "Once it got leaked out there, I was like fuck it, it's out.. let it go", he said of his feelings on the song's premature release, but Busta successfully got the visual taken down in the end. At this point Reek decided to distance himself from Busta Rhymes' Conglomerate imprint, and it turns out he's inked a deal with Birdman's Rich Gang. This comes only a day or so after Busta Rhymes left Cash Money Records, a label also helmed by Birdman, which makes the situation even more complicated. However, Reek is confident that there's no hard feelings between the two about the new signing. Watch Reek's interview below.

Jeremih Announces New Mixtape "Not On My Album"

Jeremih has plans to drop a mixtape containing records that won't make his album in August. Although Jeremih just surprised fans a week ago with the release of his long-awaited No More EP with producer Shlohmo, he's got more tricks up his sleeve. After dropping off a new visual today for a record with fellow Chi-town artist Chi Hoover, "She Know It", he's announced a new project on the way. The project has a to-the-point title, Not On My Album, and is slated to drop on August 4th. Although this really needs no explanation, the project will consist of records that didn't make the cut for his upcoming album. We're still bumping No More though, which you can listen to or download below if you haven't already. Also peep the new visuals for the Chi Hoover-featured "She Know It" below. Hopefully we get details on the highly anticipated third studio Thumpy Johnson following Not On My Album's release.

Iggy Azalea To Host Return Of MTV Show "House Of Style"

Iggy Azalea is set to take her talents to TV and host the return of the MTV show "House Of Style." Australian rap beauty Iggy Azalea is blowing up, and there's no stopping it. MTV is keeping the momentum going, but tapping the chart-topping rapper to host the re-launch of their TV show "House of Style." "House of Style", some may recall, was started back in 1989 with model Cindy Crawford as the host. The show documents the ever-evolving fashion in the music industry, which means Iggy will be tracking what the stars are wearing and where, documenting it all. According to MTV, we can expect Iggy to take "viewers from L.A.’s best vintage stores with Jeremy Scott to music video sets with Rita Ora." She'll also be hosting a special VMA episode of "House of Style" following the 2014 VMAs on August 26th. The season itself premieres on August 4th on MTV. Are you excited for "House of Style" to return?

Drake Calls Himself & J. Cole The "Two Kings" Of The Rap Game During L.A. Show

Drake says that there are only "two kings in this shit right now." Earlier today we posted footage from J. Cole's "Dollar And A Dream" tour finale in Los Angeles last night. The ColeWorld MC went out with a bang, performing two shows in one night, with each show seeing a different surprise guest: Kendrick Lamar and Drake. We saw brief footage from K. Dot's time on stage, and now plenty of Instagram clips are circulating from Drizzy's time on stage. Drake's performance is making the rounds because of a bold statement the Toronto rapper said while on stage. Grabbing J. Cole during the set, Drake declared to the crowd, "There's only two kings in this shit right now. They're standing on this stage." Power 106's Rikki Martinez captured the moment at just the right time, so you can watch it below as well as other clips from the night, including ones with Kendrick. Agree or disagree with Drake's statement? Let us know.

Ice Cube On "Drop Girl" Criticism: "When You See Your Girl Dance To This, You'll Love Me Again"

Ice Cube responds to backlash regarding his new single, "Drop Girl" with 2 Chainz and LMFAO's Redfoo. It's clear that Ice Cube's lifestyle has changed quite a bit from his days in NWA. Fans have adjusted to seeing him in family-oriented movies like "Are We There Yet?", but for the most part, his music has stuck within the genre of gangsta rap. Thus, his newest single, "Drop Girl", came as a bit of surprise, sporting features from 2 Chainz and LMFAO's Redfoo, and sporting a more EMD-leaning beat. Some longtime fans have been less than impressed with the song, so Cube made sure to address the backlash in an Instagram video. "I want to thank everybody for supporting that new "Drop Girl" song with my man Redfoo and 2 Chainz," he began, before giving his take on the haters. "To my hardcore fans, it's only one song," he explained, alluding to the fact that the rest of the album will satisfy his loyal followers, but insisted, "When you see your girl dance to this shit, you'll love me again." Watch the clip below.

Busta Rhymes Announces Split From Cash Money

Busta Rhymes reveals he's parted ways with Cash Money Records. It seems the relationship between Busta Rhymes and Cash Money was a short-lived one. Today Bussa Bus has announced his departure from the Birdman-helmed record label. Busta Rhymes first connected with the large roster in 2011, but during a recent visit to Shade 45's Sway In The Morning, he confirmed he's left the label. He assured fans they left on good terms. "For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it — recording the album for five years, I lost Chris Lighty making this album, I lost my father making this album. The shit I was putting into this album, I’m not compromising my vision for it. So if I feel like if, in the slightest way, we ain’t facilitating everything necessary for the vision to be seen through and executed in the way that I’ve been envisioning this shit for the last five years, let me live and die in my own own inequity," Busta said during the interview, referring to his forthcoming album E.L.E. 2. He continued, "I just had a conversation with Bird like, ‘Listen, bro. I’m grateful and everything is love with us, but I just gotta see this through the way that I wan’t to see this through.’" Peep the full interview below, where he details the entire recording process for the Eminem-featured "Calm Down." Listen to to the new single here.

Big Sean's Ex-Fiancee Naya Rivera Marries New Man Three Months After Break Up

Big Sean's ex-fiancee Naya Rivera weds another man, just three months after the two split up. Not strictly hip-hop news, but it's making the rounds today across Twitter and the blogs: Naya Rivera married her new boyfriend just three months after breaking things off with Big Sean. Sean Don and the Glee actress had a whirlwind romance, with their relationship first confirmed in April of last year, and Sean then appearing on her single "Sorry", which ultimately flopped. Following that the two announced their engagement in October, but broke it off this past April. This spawned rumors that the Detroit rapper was cheating on Naya, although these rumors were denied. Now, three months later, Naya has surprised the media by marrying her latest BF, an actor, Ryan Dorsey. The two reportedly got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small gathering of friends and family. Did Sean make the right move by letting Naya go?

T.I. Addresses Iggy Azalea Ghostwriting Rumors

T.I. denies rumors that he writes lyrics for Iggy Azalea. Rumors have been speculating for quite some time that Australian emcee Iggy Azalea has been relying on ghostwriters--namely her former label head T.I.--to pen her major hits. Well, now we can put that particular story to rest. “I mean, I ain’t no ghostwriter,” T.I. claimed in a recently-published video Bijou Star TV. “Iggy got her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world her own way. I couldn’t write a lot of the shit she say, you know? I couldn’t put her thoughts into words as articulate as she does. You know what I’m saying? She just has a different way of presenting herself and her art. So, I mean—Now don’t get me wrong, everybody in the studio helps with hooks and certain things like that. That goes for me and any of the other top five rappers, performers; you want the best ideas.” The rapper also touched on the end of his Family Hustle series and his evolution as an artist. “Really, I just want to continue to evolve as an artist and re-present myself,” he said. “Let people find new things to learn and like about T.I. You gotta grow as a person. An artist is just an extension of you as a person. So, as a person you must grow. So, as an artist it’s inevitable.” View the full interview below

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Reportedly Hire North West Body Double For $500k

Reports say that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian held auditions for a body double for their daughter North West. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been very protective of their child, North West, since her birth last year. While the Kardashians are known to put all their family members in the spotlight thanks to their reality TV show, North West is one of the few family members that has stayed clear of reality TV. Now UK gossip site Mirror Online reports on drastic measures the couple are taking to ensure North has her privacy. Apparently they've hired a baby body double for North, at a cost of $500,000. Considering they held their wedding rehearsal in one location and the wedding itself in another in an order to confuse the media, this would not be too surprising. Likewise, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise reportedly did the same thing for their daughter Suri when she was young. One of those infamous "sources" tells the Mirror, "There were auditions held in LA at a specialist agency and in the end they found a child who is the spitting image of their daughter. They also hired a body-double nanny, who they hope will really throw paps off the scent."

Ray J Charged With Sexual Battery, Resisting Arrest

Ray J has been hit hit with 10 charges over an event that took place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in May. Back in May, police were called to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, when it was reported that Ray J had "made contact" with a woman's rear end, against her will. When cops arrived on the scene, they deemed the actions "incidental", and not that of sexual battery, but were forced to take the singer in when he caused a scene in the Valet area, refusing to leave, and eventually kicking out a cop car window (which he says was due to him being "claustrophobic"), and spitting in an officer's face. Ray J is now being charged for the incident, but unlike the cops, the D.A. is not buying the "incidental" groping story, and have hit the singer with a sexual battery charge, and well as "4 counts of resisting arrest, 3 counts of assault and battery and 2 counts of vandalism". All of the charges qualify as misdemeanors. Ray J has yet to speak on the matter.

Did Drake & 50 Cent Record A New Song Together?

According to artist D-Teck, Drake and 50 Cent have a new banger in the works. Could we be seeing an upcoming collaboration between Drake and 50 Cent in the near future? According to 50/50 Konvict Muzik A&R & artist D-Teck, Drizzy and Fif have put together a new song that is a banger. Taking to twitter yesterday, D-Teck posted that he had just heard a song from the two superstars that made him put his gun fingers in the air and go “Bomboclaaaaat!!”. Fans then began to ask D-Teck if the 50 Cent and Drake collaboration will appear on 50‘s new album Street King Immortal, to which he responded saying "he can’t tell" (see tweets below). Take note that this has not been confirmed by either parties, and could be just one big internet troll and hoax. BUT many notable sources have been retweeting it and posting this story, so guess time will only tell if it holds true. We’ll keep you updated if any more news becomes available on this. For now, depict D-Teck's tweets yourself below. DON D-TECK KONVICT ✔ @D_TECK Follow I just just heard a track with @50cent and @Drake that let me put my gun fingers in the air and say BOMBOCLAAAAAAT!!! 6:33 PM - 20 Jul 2014 ₣r£$h @DamierFresh @D_TECK word, its goin on Fifs new album?

Kendrick Lamar Covers Complex, Speaks On New Album

Kendrick Lamar covers Complex magazine, and speaks on his "good kid, m.A.A.d city" follow up. While GQ nabbed Kanye West for their new issue, Complex has taken on West's "Yeezus" tour partner, Kendrick Lamar, as their lead for the August/September issue. Both artists are working on new albums with high expectations having been set by their respective audiences, although Kendrick doesn't reveal too much to Complex when it comes to his GKMC follow up. Nonetheless he is apparently "flirting with ideas" when it comes to album title, and he's already recorded 30-40 songs for the new LP. He's been in the studio with TDE's in-house producers, Tae Beats and Sounwave of Digi+Phonics, as well as his Aftermath head Dr. Dre. Fans should be ready for a fourth quarter release, according to Complex. "If I keep focusing on, ‘I need to make something better than good kid,’ it’s going to be just that," Kendrick says during the interview. "That’s not challenging yourself. I don’t want to become that person reflecting on what has been done. What I’m doing now is the question. I’m only as good as my last word, my last hook, my last bridge." Through out their cover story on the rap wunderkid, we hear from TDE's president Punch, Nas, Dave Free (his manager), producers and more. Dave Free happens to reveal that the average Kendrick Lamar guest verse will set you back $250,000, although they once charged $400,000 (to who??). Among other interesting facts revealed in Complex's narrative: "Fuckin' Problems," A$AP Rocky's massive hit, was originally made for GKMC, but was left off because it didn't fit in.
