“One Time for Hip-Hop” is the second single from rapper Laelo and producer Hec Dolo’s collaborative project entitled Deeper Than Plenty, Higher Than Most.

Young Thug’s retail debut is out now. It’s called Barter 6. It was going to be titled Carter 6 but a last minute lawsuit has prevented that from happening. Lil Wayne probably still isn’t happy about this. The album features guest spots from YMCMB owner Birdman, T.I., Boosie BadAzz, Young Dolph, and more. It’s got thirteen tracks total, which is pretty short for a mainstream retail release. And, honestly, it’s a pretty great album. You be the judge. Get it now on iTunes here and stream the full thing after the jump.

So apparently, A$AP Rocky, who was riding around London had an object hurrled at his car. This prompted Rocky and crew to follow the alleged assailant into a bagel shop and confront him. Rocky, who is from Harlem, put on his best Harlem tough guy pose and went at the guy, giving him a ear full, and threatened to put hands on him. Rocky cooled off and walked away. However, the man (or men?) in the bagel shop had some choice words for Rocky as well. The title of the video, by the way, is “ASAP Rocky Running Gums in London” so clearly the people in that bagel shop weren’t exactly “cool” with the A$AP Mob all-star. Check out the full video of the confrontation after the jump.
