DJ Booth Album Review: Young Money's Debut

Review by Nathan S. for

To that end he’s put together a mostly Southern-focused roster of artists who, with one notable exception, have yet to experience anything even remotely approaching their head honcho’s level of… Continue

“That was good!,” Pusha exclaimed to HipHopDX recently when Malice’s clever quip regarding the business of music and its affect on Hip Hop from TTCD selection “Showing Out” was recited… Continue

In an interview with XXL magazine recently, 50 Cent discussed the rap careers of G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo who left the Interscope record label a short time ago. “[People wonder], how do you fall out of the public eye?

What's Birdman gotta say 'bout Drake?

Cash Money millionaire Birdman discussed his new bread winner, Drake, and compared him to his main bread winner Lil Wayne. Baby says that Drake is undeniably a star, but has a long way to go before he reaches Weezy’s “best rapper alive” status, saying:

“Drake is already a superstar. That’s 20 years from now. Hopefully, he’ll be bigger. That’s what we’re striving for. We ain’t tripping. We’re working hard for him to be bigger than anyone else. We… Continue
