Future’s recent mixtape run has been much praised and rightfully so. Monster, Beast Mode and the recent 56 Nights are all terrific projects and each has reinstated much faith in fans. And after the unexpected success of his Monster cut “Fuck Up Some Commas” Future returns with the visuals for his 56 Nights cut “March Madness.” Contrary to the song’s title it’s not about basketball but police brutality and coping through all the “madness.” Check it out after the jump.
Migos (Quavo, Offset, Takeoff) are teasing the release of their forthcoming debut full length album (hot off dropping consistent mixtape after consistent mixtape — not to mention their hit single “Versace” was certainly no “one hit wonder”) which arrives June 16th. They’ve already shared one single in “One Time” (get at it here) and by the looks of this new loosie entitled “Stankin'” it’s staying that way for the time being. The new cut features one time (no pun intended) Atlanta frontrunner Trinidad James. Sadly, he’s fallen onto some hard times as far as his relevance in the game. Anyway, get at the new Migos track after the jump!
Waka Flocka Flame is dropping off the fifth installment of his Salute Me or Shoot Me series.

In addition Flocka will be releasing his forthcoming album, Flockaveli 2, on June 1st. Check out Salute Me or Shoot Me V after the jump.

Young Scooter’s “Lil Mexico” buddy Future has been killin’ it lately via his mixtape run (Monster, Beast Mode and 56 Nights) so it’s only natural Young Scooter would use this as some sort of inspiration. And, actually, he has. His latest mixtape Jug Season is a terrific addition to the Atlanta hip-hop cannon. Here, with the track title, Scooter channels some inner pain. Check it out after the jump.
Boosie Badazz’ Every Ghetto, Every City Vol. 1 is currently available over at LiveMixtapes. Two standouts include the 50 Cent featured cut “Paid” and the Migos featured track “Lotta Respect.” You can hear ’em both after the jump. Head over to LiveMixtapes and cop that new Boosie ASAP!

It’s worth noting that Tip is also part of the cast as Russell, a family member of Kevin Hart’s character Darnell. Check out T.I.’s “I Go Hard” from the Go Hard soundtrack after the jump.
Calling Fire Marshall Future. During Future’s new visuals for his Monster cut “F**k Up Some Commas” there are multiple fires started but Future is virtually unfazed by this. Fitting given his recent mixtape run (the aforementioned Monster, Beast Mode and the most recent 56 Nights with DJ Esco) is nothing but straight up heat. In the visuals here Future is almost literally “torching” everything in sight. This sentiment may also allude to his unstoppable nature as of late, as everything he touches turns into flames. Anyway, enough with the pyromaniac nonsense. Peep Future’s latest video for “F**k Up Some Commas” after the jump.
Ludacris’ Ludaversal is set to drop March 31st and with Luda already giving us a taste of “Call Ya Bluff,” “Beast Mode,” the K.R.I.T. featured “Come and See Me,” and most recently “Charge It to the Rap Game” we’re getting a good idea of where the album will go. Luda is now sharing the visuals from his first single “Call Ya Bluff’ which ya’ll can peep after the jump.
Ludacris’ Ludaversal is set to drop March 31st and with Luda already giving us a taste of “Call Your Bluff,” “Beast Mode,” and the K.R.I.T. featured “Come and See Me” we’re getting a good idea of where the album will go. But seeing as Luda is all about the fans he’s sharing another cut in “Charge It to the Rap Game.” Listen to it after the jump.
Future is killing this mixtape game right now! After dropping his somewhat decent album Honest in 2014 he went off dropping mixtape gem after mixtape gem. First was the unbelievably cohesive Monster, which he followed up with a collaborative project with Atlanta producer Zaytoven in Beast Mode. Now he’s teaming up with his favorite DJ in Esco for 56 Nights, a loose concept mixtape surrounding the recent imprisonment of Esco in Dubai. It’s ten brand spankin’ new tracks with Future and producer Southside on every track. Stream and download after the jump.
It’s March so that could only mean one thing: NCAA college basketball tournament.

Waka Flocka Flame’s “disgust” over the actions displayed in Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s (SAE) viral clip has prompted the rapper to cancel his April concert at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Waka responding to SAE’s offensive behavior earlier this week via an Instagram post, he appeared in an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday to share more of his thoughts.
“My initial reaction when I seen the video, I was more like hurt. More like disgusted, because I knew those kids, I performed for those kids,” the Atlanta rapper said in reference to a 2014 concert at the university. “They made me feel like a brother. Just to see what a person does behind closed doors was more disgusting than hurting. I wasn’t angry, I was just disgusted.”
