Juicy J’s been busy helping Drake shoot his “Worst Behaviour” video in his hometown of Memphis recently, but today he delivers some visuals of his own. The Juice Man plays a merciless mob boss in the video to his Stay Trippy album opener, “Stop It,” but this is one capo that isn’t scared to get his hands dirty. Sidebar: I still wonder if Juicy knows Travi$ Scott already used this beat.

Kim Kardashian gave her first post-baby (and post-engagement) interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. On the hot topic of marriage, the future Mrs. West revealed that Kanye’s extravagant proposal was, indeed, a surprise (one that her whole family were in on), and the couple are currently eyeing up a destination wedding, possibly next summer.

As for that saucy selfie she posted on Instagram a few weeks ago, Kim called it a “middle finger” to all the people calling her fat. She also dished on how she shed an amazing 50 pounds since giving birth to daughter North West in June.

It was an honor meeting Mannie Fresh over the weekend. From the minute we met, the OG Cash Money producer was warm, humble and full of gems. As the official DJ of Red Bull’s Street Kings Brass Band competition, the New Orleans native took us around his hometown and eventually stopped to give us an on-camera interview. The pioneer confirmed that his album with Mos Def is done and they’re just working out the paperwork. He also says he’s been in the studio with Wiz khalifa and plans to drop a bunch of EDM mixes in the near future. And according to Mannie, the Hot Boys are in a terrific place and could be dropping new music soon. (via VIBE)

For Waka Flocka Flame, the fact that it’s Halloween is a good enough excuse to drop a new mixtape. Even after releasing From Roaches to Rollies at the start of the month, Fozzie Bear is back with 24 new tracks in his latest horror-themed project, which co-stars Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa, Migos, Wyclef Jean and Wooh Da Kid. Although listed as featured artists, Michael Jackson and Action Bronson are, unfortunately, just sampled (which should be more obvious in the former’s case).

GBE’s underdog is prepping a new mixtape titled Trappin’ Ain’t Dead (what’s up Jeezy) in November and just let his Kendrick Lamar-assisted banger go to the Internets. If you weren’t’ feeling K. Dot’s collabo with Em, then you have to love this. The kid from Compton busts out a smooth flow but fills his lyrics with bombs. “I done flew a private jet for some Harold’s chicken straight from Rome.” Produced by 808 Mafia.

travis scott

BEEN TRILL garb, wax jeans and even a hunting-style mask; Travi$ Scott is practically a walking poster child for today’s “street goth” style. So what better occasion than Halloween for the G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle rookie to serve up some nightmarish new visuals? The official video for “Sh*t On You” — a skit at the end of “Bad Mood” that appears on his debut mixtape, Owl Pharaoh — can only be described as what your brain looks like when you overload it with psychedelics.

Childish Gambino’s press run continued with an interview with Fuse, in which he spoke on why he prefers to write in the morning, being the most insecure person he knows and wanting to create full-fledged projects as opposed to just “albums” (a la Yeezus). Speaking of Kanye, ‘Bino praised him for pushing society forward and even called him a “prophet.” Later, he recalls the time A$AP Rocky simultaneously sneak dissed and complimented him.

I’m probably the most insecure person I know. A lot of people feel that way — that’s the thing, pretending like you’re not like that, that’s too much work. I could never be A$AP Rocky. I could never be him ’cause there’s just too much confidence in himself. It was funny, yesterday he kinda sneak dissed me but also gave me props but gave himself props at the same time. He was like, “I know you want to be me, but it’s funny, ’cause I wanna be you.”

After the jump, ‘Bino explains his new album title Because the Internet, why he shared those Instagram letters and why he doesn’t consider himself a rapper…
