He got Nicki he know that he hit the jackpot!

Although rap duo Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have been dating for over a year now that native Philadelphian admits that dating the mega pop star is like living a dream come true. In a recent interview with Noisey Raps the MMG rapper tells them he knew he had  to be with a girl from the hood who would understand his lifestyle. He says:

Where I come from, I can’t just be from the hood and just have a like a total opposite girlfriend, she don’t know nothing about where I come from… she don’t understand me. So, it’s somebody that’ll understand me, somebody that hustles, you know what I’m saying? Somebody that’s aggressive. You know, these the things I like.

Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Meek said being with Nicki is a dream come true because it was something he always wanted in life.

I always seen it like this. I always seen me having one of the top hustling, prettiest girls in the game. That’s how my account was set up. I could wake up in my bed and just look at Nicki, like man this shit, it gotta be a dream ’cause we used to dream all this shit and it’s just going on right now.

Frank Ocean Ends Silence With New Albums ‘Blond’ And ‘Endless’

frankocean.0.0

On Saturday August 20th Christmas came early when the world was found drooling over their iphones and androids due to the long and highly anticipated sophomore album. As a result of the torture Ocean put us through, crazed fans lost their sanity when Frank Ocean blessed the hip hop spectrum with his visual album titled “Endless”, music video to intro “Nikes”, and surprised pop up shops located throughout New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London. Ocean’s team handed out free copies of his initial title LP, Boys Don’t Cry. The exclusive magazine also included the 17 track LP Blond with features from Kanye West, Beyonce, the late David Bowie, Kendrick Lamar, and Andre 3000. This elaborate magazine was far from disappointing; its size could be compared to a Vogue magazine which contained essays, poetry, and photos by many high ranked artists in the industry such as Yeezy himself.  

The Grammy award winning artist disappeared from the face of the Earth. After four years of speculation to whether Ocean could ever redeem himself has truly come into fruition.

See more below.

I had the time of my life making all of this. Thank you all. Especially those of you who never let me forget that I had to finish. Which is basically everyone of yall.

He’s definitely not lying about that part, fans have been pouring their outrage and frustration out on Twitter and Instagram for the past year. Although Apple Music has categorized Blond under the pop genre, his vocal tracks, feeds off of blues, soul, all while remaining centralized to R&B. Ocean expresses himself as a male whom isn’t afraid to put away his masculine ego and open up to his vulnerabilities, especially to “Ivy” singing:

I thought that I was dreaming when you said you love me.

I’m pretty sure every man and woman can correlate to that one past heartless lover. With his new album and soulful approach can Frank Ocean earn Best R&B album of the year, or is it too early?

Discussion: Is Desiigner Still Labeled A One Hit Wonder After Release Of Timmy Turner?

The “I got broads in Atlanta” rapper is the viral topic of conversation after his follow up to No. 1 smash hit Panda”. You may not be able to make out what he’s saying, but his catchy lyrics are memorizing. After being introduced to the hip hop industry with his iconic memes and remixes, Desiigner has marked his territory with his newly single “Timmy Turner”.

With the pressure of being inducted into the XXL Freshman class of 2016, Desiigner launched another banger for  his fans and anticipated doubters with one freestyle. “Timmy Timmy Turner, he been wishing for a burner to kill everybody walking,” sings the rapper whose voice has been compared to the dirty sprite rapper Future. It seems Kanye was spot on when choosing the 19 year old Brooklyn native rapper to represent the G.O.O.D music family. With his first mixtape New English released with features from his own squad Pusha T, it may seem safe to say Desiigner isn’t a one hit wonder. While we have to anxiously wait for his next move to kill everybody walking we’ll gracefully break down his contagious hook to Timmy Turner”.

Read more and listen below.

Timmy Timmy Turner

He been wishin’ for a burner

To kill everybody walkin’

You know that it’s on in the furnace

Fine bitch on BET

Hottie, why you aren’t fuckin’ on BET

Wildin’ for wallet

To kill everybody walkin’

He throwin’ his soul on the furnace.

drake-views-digital-booklet-1

What a time to be alive.

Over the past few months, Drake has consistently supplied fans with just enough new music to keep them comfortable but finally the wait is over! After dropping several hits including the chart-topping single “Hotline Bling”, dancehall inspired “One Dance”, and of course “Summer Sixteen”; Drizzy is finally giving the fans what they’ve been anxiously waiting for with the release of his fourth studio album, Views From The 6.

Earlier this week, Drake returned to social media to drop all the announcements needed to build up anticipation for the Views release. He took to his Instagram to give us a first look at the albums jaw-dropping cover art which featured the superstar sitting atop the famed CN Tower overlooking the Toronto Skyline.

He then returned to the gram to announce the “Summer Sixteen Tour” (appropriately named after the recently released single) accompanied by Future, Roy Woods, DVSN, and a few other special guests that have yet to be announced.

See more below.

The self-proclaimed Champagne Papi continued to send the internet into a frenzy by releasing the albums 20-song tracklist followed by a short video clip to keep fans occupied until its official release.

While many of you were most likely tuned in to Drizzy’s new album, the rapper was conducting what he says “is his very last interview” with Zane Lowe. Here’s a few excerpts.

On getting Jay and Kanye on “Pop Style:

Jay didn’t really do a verse. I was just trying to get ‘Ye on it first. Jay kinda just did my first few lines for me and that’s how we flexed it … It didn’t play out how I wanted it to go. Sometimes [Jay Z and I] just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum. It’s always mutual respect but sometimes it has to be from afar.

On his relationship with Nicki Minaj:

I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for … Not only for our past and the how much work and time we put it, but for how she dealt with the situation at hand. She dealt with me how I would expect her to — with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.

On how he feels Views will be received:

I don’t want you to get it right away … Great music takes a little work. It takes elevating your listening level.

T.I. Signs With Tidal: Becomes Newest Co-Owner

t

Rapper T.I. just recently announced his latest business venture. After leaving the major-label system in 2014 T.I. found a new home under Jay Z’s wing. While performing at Greenbriar Mall in his hometown on Feb 22, T.I. announced he signed a distribution deal with Roc Nation for his upcoming album, Dime Trap.

A new beginning for myself as an artist and for Hustle Gang as a company. We have partnered with Roc Nation and I am part owner of TIDAL so if you ain’t subscribe to TIDAL right now, go and do it.

At the same time, he exclusively released his new single from the album, Money Talk. This album will be T.I.’s first album without a major label backing it, though Roc Nation is disturbed through Universal Music Group.

According to TIDAL.com:

TIDAL is a global music and entertainment platform that brings artists and fans together through unique music and content experiences and is currently available in 46 countries. TIDAL brings music fans closer to their favorite artist and gives on-demand access to discover new music from our massive music and video catalog.

Many of the founding and supporting artists of TIDAL have used the streaming music platform to exclusively release music, videos, and major announcements to fans.

TIDAL being just a little over a year old, Jay Z’s music streaming service has been in talks with Samsung several sources told the New York Post. Samsung has been rumored to be an interested buyer in TIDAL. Maybe they finally got the chance to potentially make a profit. Research also shows that Google and Spotify have also been dinner guests at this talk of buying the fresh music meat on the block.

You made a smart move on the board Tip! We look forward to you rubbing elbows with the TIDAL tribe.

rihanna-drake-video-work

Rihanna “Work” her way back to the #1 spot on the chats, with her new island feel track WORK, debuting off her now certified platinum album Anti. This puts the pop princess in the likes of legendary late Michael Jackson, and pop diva Mariah Carey with the record for #1 singles on the Billboard charts.

Rihanna recently dropped the visuals for the new single featuring hip hop rapper Drake. With recent disappointments to fans from cancelled and delayed tour dates, as well as last week Grammy Awards where the star pulled out of a late minute performance.  Rihanna left fans nothing short of disappointment, surprisingly dropping not one but two visuals for the single.  

Part 1 of the video, directed by Director X shows the chart-topping duo in a night posted against the wall, getting it in with a club packed of people dancing and having a good time. The video serves all types of dance hall and island flavor, with tons of whining, grinding and twerking dance moves.

Part 2 of the video, directed by Tim Erem shows Rihanna and Drake in a personal and intimate setting. The scene takes place in a private room where the duo is alone, where the pop princess serves up a sexy and serenading dance with Drake watching from afar.

Get into the visual below.

Be sure to catch the steamy new video,  and Rihanna on the road this Spring for the Anti tour with Travis Scott.
