Big surprise here, right? As TMZ reported, yesterday everybody’s favorite hip hop superthug (No Norega) Suge Knight was popped by the popo’s in Las Vegas, Nevada after making an unsafe lane change in his black Bentley.

To the cop’s surprise, a quick search of Knight’s car turned up a “small amount” of marijuana, and after they ran his name through the system, multiple warrants out for his arrest also magically appeared. After being booked at the local precinct, the Death Row mogul was later released.

According to TMZ, Knight is currently on a three-year unsupervised probation for driving on an unsuspended license, which again, isn’t great news for big Suge.

This has to be one of the craziest, most random meeting of the minds put down on wax as of late, but don’t judge a book by its cover … or a record by the fact MTV’s “From G’s to Gents” RiFF RaFF is on it. I give anything with Action Bronson — and most recently Harry Fraud (who produced this jam) — a spin, but I honestly wrote this off as soon as I saw the Albanian spitter Tweet about it this AM. But what do you know? It goes hard and somehow works.

Coming up on a year of being out of the bing, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has been hitting us off with a solid dose of solo and collaborative material, but his potentially strongest post-prison piece of work, H.N.I.C. 3 will be dropping 11 days from now on February 20. After leaking “I’m From The Trap” featuring French Montana, P is back with another Havoc produced gem titled “Great Spitters,” which features Young Money Bronx representative Cory Gunz.

Quite possibly, the most illusive rapper to walk the face of the planet in the past decade has arisen from the depths of the abyss. At first glance, Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt looks like your average LA hip hop, skater grom, but don’t be fooled, because there’s one thing that separates him from the rest … his insane ability to spit cryptic flows with ease.

However, during Odd Future’s rapid rise to hip hop prominence, which took place in the matter of a year or so, Earl was nowhere to be found. While his video to “Earl,” off his mixtape Earl went viral on YouTube, Odd Future fans were left scratching their heads as to his whereabouts. But thanks to the hard work of stalkers worldwide, Complex was able to track him down in Somoa, where he was said to be attending Coral Reef Academy, which is a program for “at risk teenage males.”

Fast forward to Wednesday night, Odd Future’s overlord Tyler, The Creator tweeted “Oh. Thebe Has….I Mean Earl Has A Twitter. @earxsweat.” On Earl’s new Twitter account, a link led followers to a YouTube clip containing a snippet of a new song simply titled, “Home,” with Earl saying “If you want the whole thing, get me 50,000 by today!” Low and behold, his Twitter account got 50,000 followers and we’re left with a new track, and a rejuvenated sense of hope that the sought-after Odd Future spitter will now be blessing our ear drums for some time to come.
