This ain’t for the faint of heart or the light of skivvies. This is anti-AutoTune. This is the world’s most dangerous hip-hop show, by a stretch. Parental discretion is advised. The clickables after the jump…

Lupe-Fiasco-Pound-Cake


Lupe is making the most of the rap’s publicity wars by dismantling popular beats and inserting himself into the conversation with symbolic lyrics about how weak the game is. It’s a good strategy: not too confrontational to be overblown but sly and referential enough to thrill those who get it. Be one of those. (Hilarious that he keeps naming these songs sequels to his earlier work when they have nothing to do with that at all.)


The year’s not even over and Drake is at #11 on this list, with $10.5M banked already. King Kendrick ain’t far off his heels with $9M in total. 50 Cent has also tumbled way down this list as compared to a few years ago. It looks like the young guns are taking their official place and not just some “Saved-By-The-Bell-The-New-Class” knockoffs either. Read the full list after the jump. Hat tip to TSS.

Artist: Drake

Album: Nothing Was The Same

Label: Cash Money Records

Release Date: September 24, 2013

It’s lonely at the top.

“No new friends.” “Versace, Versace”. “Y.O.L.O.” Over the past six months, Drake’s music has been nonstop fuel for memes and Instagram hashtags, so it makes sense that he’d rather spend some time by himself than participate in a culture he’s largely contributed to. After all, you don’t sh*t where you eat.

i’m going on the record right now as not hating drake’s new album Nothing Was The Same. on first listen, dead serious i fell asleep. but i think that had more to do with the fact that i hadn’t prepared myself to listen to an r&b album and those joints do a brother like warm cocoa on a wintry night. aubrey’s playlist has a similar effect and shouldn’t be consumed while operating machinery heavier than an iPhone or a calculator.

Aubrey can’t get out of our heads this week. He’s on every show talking about the album and his new lease on life. Sounding like a motivational speaker out here. Ellen grilled him on his dating life, popping up pictures of various rumored flings and Drake swatted them like David Ortiz. Of Rihanna? Watch.

first of all, pause that song title all the way.
 
now, another moment in hip-hop weekday singles release history happened today. jay z, temporarily descended from his throne of art collecting and international-ing, blessed the people (those wicked ingrates) with a verse from on high. and it’s on drake’s new album. reasons why this is major…

Drake Premieres New Song On Jimmy Fallon

If this song is any indication of the tone of Drake’s Nothing Was The Same, sh*t’s about to get even more deep and uncomfortable. Drake’s best work is his most squirming, awkward struggle with fame set to the rhythm of an increasingly confident flow. A personal letter to his mother and uncle? That’s just the start.
