August Alsina has been making plenty of noise lately, but you'd expect nothing less from one of Def Jam's brightest new talents. Following collaborations with the likes of Kirko Bangz, Chris Brown and Trey Songz -- the latter two who helped his track, 'I Luv This S--t,' reach countless new ears -- the New Orleans crooner delivers a steamy, slow-motion video for 'Ghetto.'
Curren$y and Lil Wayne's careers may have taken completely opposite turns -- Curren$y grinding to become one of the most successful independent rappers in the game, Wayne soaring to mainstream superstardom -- since Spitta registered as one of Weezy's first Young Money goons in the mid '00s, but the New Orleans natives still have one thing in common: the love for cars.
Good news Kid Cudi fans: you don't have to wait until 2015 to hear new music. During a recent show in Dallas on his ongoing 'Cud Life Tour,' the Lonely Stoner announced plans to release a new EP within the next three months.
Before we saw him bundle onto the stage to perform (or should we say yell while the real artists perform) 'I Wanna Be With You' with Future and Rick Ross during last night's network premiere of the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards, DJ Khaled unleashed two star-studded songs off his upcoming album, 'Suffering From Success.'
Hot 97 met Rap Radar as Elliott "YN" Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller served as guests on the latest episode of Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sound's long-running Juan Episode podcast. The industry vets discussed everything from YN's CRWN interview series and rap blogs, to the best producers in the game and who's next from New York.
A$AP Rocky and Kathy Griffin have, shall we say, history. After being put on to the red-headed MILF by Danny Brown in their first 'Back & Forth' interview last year, the two rappers appeared as guests on her Bravo network show back in February, where the Harlem rapper practically motorboated the host.
In addition to his new EP, 'Easily,' Chuck Inglish also stops by with the official video to the standout off the project, the Mac Miller and Ab-Soul-assisted 'Came Thru/Easily.' Inspired by Beastie Boys' 'Sabotage,' video, the Trevor Kane-directed clip finds the trio roaming around and dapping up Smoke DZA in a cartoon-infused Fairfax in jumpsuits.
Dom Kennedy secured an exclusive deal with retail giant Best Buy to sell physical copies of his new album, 'Get Home Safely.' Thanks to a pretty major cock-up, though, the CD hit stores a whole two weeks early (when it was originally supposed to arrive, before getting pushed back), which obviously lead to the project leaking online.
The whole New-York-rap-is-dead debate was going on long before Kendrick Lamar jumped on Big Sean's 'Control' and knocked over the buildings like Snoop in '95. But the L.A. lyricist crowning himself the King of New York definitely intensified the misery of proud Big Apple purists.
