During her acceptance speech for “Anaconda” (it received the Best Hip-Hop Video Award, for some odd reason?) Nicki Minaj took issue with host Miley Cyrus, who had some choice words for Nicki in an interview with The New York Times. Nicki used her time on stage to throw some shots back at Miley. “And now, back to this b***h who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” she sneered. Miley attempted to say her comments were taken out of context, but Nicki wasn’t having it. Check out the full video after the jump.

As previously Kanye West went on to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. And it was Taylor Swift who of course presented Ye with the award… because ratings. In addition to calling Ye a “friend,” she joked “I’mma let you finish, but Kanye West has had one of the greatest careers of all time,” referring to West’s infamous interruption in 2009. Ye went on a wild diatribe about kids, award shows, and even Justin Timberlake (who apparently inspired him.) Oh right, he also announced his run for President in the 2020 election. Okay, cool. You can watch the entire video after the jump.

Macklemore-Ryan-Lewis-Downtown-2015-1200x1200-500x500

So, uh, Macklemore is back. After hitting it big with buddy Ryan Lewis (byway of smash hits like “Same Love” and “Thrift Shop”) the Seattle artist is back with “Downtown,” a track that has already garnered unfair comparisons to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.” And while “Downtown” also keeps the funk alive, it is surprisingly flat and monotone — with Macklemore “spitting” empty lines about God-knows-what. There’s even a segment in the five minute (yes five whole minutes) track where Macklemore sounds suspiciously similar to one Snoop Dogg for whatever reason. The video — which you may stream after the jump — is quite the doozy. For starters: the choreography is so forced and is clearly there to set up his upcoming VMA performance. (Just look at the set for the music video, it’s on that same empty Hollywood backlot you’ve seen in countless movies and videos before.) And not to mention there are some really misplaced cameos from old-school rap heads Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, and Grandmaster Caz. Oh, right, there’s also legendary baseball player Ken Griffey, Jr. Because he played for the Seattle Mariners. Get the connection? I suppose this is a good time for me to stop the Mackelmore hate. Decide if you like “Downtown” after the jump!

By now everyone has heard that Gunplay’s debut album, Living Legend, has sold under 1K in its first week — amassing a total of 800 physical copies sold. Yikes! It is perhaps the worst selling major label rap album all year, and maybe even in a minute. But that’s not stopping Don Logan himself from grinding and working. Henceforth the visuals for “From da Jump,” which depicts Gunplay as a man possessed. Check out the video for Gunplay’s “From da Jump” after the jump! And maybe go cop Living Legend if you’re feeling it.

Many of our readers probably aren’t very familiar with DJ Spinn or even DJ Rashad — but they ought to be! DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad make music simply known as ‘juke’ and ‘footwork’. Both styles of music originate from Chicago, a city where Spinn and Rashad are from. DJ Rashad dropped his critically-acclaimed album, Double Cup, at the tail-end of 2013, the same year Danny Brown — a rapper from the neighboring Detroit — released his album Old. Since then DJ Rashad tragically passed away, at the tender age of 34. His career was booming and he was quickly gaining recognition across the world but sadly God called him home early. Now, Danny Brown is teaming up with DJ Spinn for “Dubby,” a track that will appear on Off the Loud — the duo’s collaborative EP — on Hyperdub (a popular electronic music label out of the UK). As far as Danny goes: Well, he’s supposed to be dropping a new album later this year. Check out “Dubby” after the jump.

Are you like me: Sitting around patiently awaiting the release of some new Jay Rock? Well, I’ve got some great news — no, it’s not out. But apparently Rock held a listening session for his forthcoming studio album, which remains untitled. So, it looks as though the release of an album for Rock is approaching. (It’s worth noting: There will be track called “Vice City,” which if anything like the video game, will be slamming.) And if you weren’t bumping the hell out of “90059” already, then check out this video for the track. After the jump!

That boy Dolph is a problem. With his excellent 16 Zips mixtape out now (seriously, go grab that) Young Dolph, the burgeoning Memphis rapper is sharing the visuals for his “Everday 420″ cut. Personally, I would’ve picked something like “Money Power Respect” or even the awesome Zaytoven-produced “Ask Your B***h” to receive a visual treatment — but aye, “Everyday 420″ is a solid choice nonetheless. If you’re still sleeping on Dolph then it’s time for you to wake your punk a** up and check out his newest video for “Everyday 420″ after the jump.

Berkeley rapper Lil B is no stranger to the media — he’s been documented quite extensively as of late; he’s been involved in some hilarious “beefs” with NBA player Kevin Durant and most recently James Harden. Lil B, however, is also knowledgeable when it comes to politics. And judging from his recent appearance on CNN, Lil B is well versed in current issues as well as his American history. During his brief appearance on CNN, Lil B discussed his support for Bernie Sanders, for Black Lives Matter, and being 100% against cursing Hillary Clinton. Check it out after the jump.
