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.

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.

Rest In Peace Big Ang.
On February 18th, approximately at 3:01am in Manhattan, Reality TV Star Big Ang died at the age of 55. It is said that she died of complications of cancer after she contracted pneumonia. Big Ang’s friend, Vinnie Medugno, confirmed on Twitter that she passed away peacefully and was surrounded by friends and family.
Big Ang’s nickname steamed from her blunt but vibrant personality. Not only was she open to letting her life play out right in front of us every week on VH1’s Mob Wives (where she first appeared), she was also very open about her illness. She recently sat down with Dr. Oz and discussed her cancer battle.

Who better than us to give you the tea? Honey pull up a chair and grab some popcorn!
Chaaaa it got real during Love And Hip Hop’s Atlanta Reunion. The taping took place in NYC on Wednesday, July 15th at the BET studios. We missed the first part of the show but when we arrived Joseline and Jessica Dime were hashing out their problems. Unfortunately, no fighting popped off between the two ‘lovers’ it was more of them talking and getting a clear understanding of what went down during the season. Jocelyn felt as though Dime should’ve personally reached out to her instead of going behind her back to other cast members and putting her on blast. And Dime explained that she was upset because Joseline was running around saying that she didn’t know who Dime was.
Moving right along…
The drama began to unfold when Joc and K.D. hit the stage. (more…)
In case you missed it, last week Big Sean dropped the video of the year with his Play No Games visual. The video pays homage to Martin Lawrence’s 1990’s hit television series Martin. Like guys why couldn’t I think of this! Ha!
Chris Brown plays the role of Cole as he belts out the chorus while an imitation Pam, Tommy and Gina gives the video a more realistic feel. Ty Dolla Sign briefly pops up during the intro and fellow rapper French Montana made a quick cameo as well.
It was nice to see other Martin characters such as Roscoe and Bruh Man come back to life and even nicer to get a quick glimpse of the person who popped up at the very end.
See below to get into the visual and to see Big Sean’s surprise guest: (more…)
