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.
2 Chainz might not have won anything at the 2013 BET Awards, but all eyes were on him at the end of the night with the release of his video for 'Feds Watching.' The video was as extravagant as one would expect, with 2 Chainz lounging in a massive mansion and enjoying the fruits of his labor.
Miguel had a big night at the 2013 BET Awards, in what could be seen as redemption for his performance gaffe at the 2013 Billboard Awards. Okay, so nothing will be able to make people forget about his infamous leg drop, but winning the award for Best R&B/Pop Artist will certainly silence some of the slander.
Last night, Ciara released the video for 'I'm Out,' the latest single off her upcoming self-titled album. The song features Nicki Minaj, who also appears in the video. The two ladies are dressed in white as they hang out in a white-walled room together in the beginning of the clip.
