It looks like 'Yeezus' will not become the soundtrack to the summer that Kanye West imagined it would be. The album took a precipitous drop in sales in its second week, selling a mere 65,000 copies. This is an 80% decrease from its first week numbers, the largest decline between first and second weeks since Madonna's 'MDNA' album last year.
A$AP Ferg is back with his latest track, "Shabba," featuring A$AP Mob head honcho A$AP Rocky. Ferg pays homage to legendary Jamaican dancehall artist Shabba Ranks on the track, invoking the name on the hook.
Mental health is the elephant in the room of hip-hop that very few people want to acknowledge. When someone commits suicide, we take a moment to mourn for the deceased, but far too often, we allow the tragedy to occur in front of our eyes and try to pick up the pieces instead of being proactive in prevention.
New York's Hot 97 just premiered Azealia Banks' latest single, 'ATM Jam,' this morning. The song is a certified party banger, with Azealia's talking greasy in both verses. Pharrell jumps on the hook with his nonchalant, monotone delivery and nails it.
Wale is back with his third solo album, 'The Gifted’ and usual he's got something to prove. It's not that he can sell records--after going gold with his last release, ‘Ambition,’ the DMV native has left that pressure in the past. ('The Gifted' will debut on the Billboard 200 at No.1 with about 150,000 copies sold). But he still feels that he needs to get his just due in the respect department.
Jersey native and A$AP Mob affiliate Da$H just put out a new mixtape called 'V.I.C.E.S.' The title stands for 'Very Ignorant Content Exposing Success,' for those who were wondering. More interesting are the names assembled to help Da$H on the new tape.
