It really wasn't that long ago when the infamous elevator video leaked and rumors circulated that a divorce for Jay Z and Beyonce was imminent. But the reports were wrong; it looks like hip-hop's most powerful couple is still going strong.
Chance the Rapper has been on a more experimental bent recently with his band The Social Experiment. After dropping a cover of the 'Arthur' theme song and playing the curmudgeon on 'No Better Blues,' he's getting ready to release a new album, 'Surf,' as early as the end of the year.
So that A$AP Mob album isn't coming anymore, but that doesn't mean gothic trap rap has died. A$AP Ant is holding the torch alongside Tootie Ro with the release of the 'Percs & Lean' mixtape. The effort runs at a lean (no pun intended) 14 tracks.
Dej Loaf's catchy but venomous 'Try Me' is a hit. So naturally, the Detroit rhymer is immediately following up with new material. She reuses the 'Try Me' formula -- a hypnotic sonic backdrop with felonious taunts -- in 'Bird Call.'
The BET Hip-Hop Awards aren't known for featuring very many emotional moments, but it had two big ones this year. The first happened when Common brought out Mike Brown's parents during his performance of 'Kingdom.' The second was when Doug E. Fresh accepted his "I Am Hip-Hop" award.
