Before hitting the stage in Los Angeles on Thursday night to celebrate his newly released Paperwork album, T.I. took a break to catch up with Rap-Up. Along with speaking on his “Private Show” collaboration with Chris Brown, the Atlanta veteran opened up about his relationship with Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave, and adding him to the Hustle Gang family.

“Never mind the paperwork, I can’t really speak for the deals or the solidification of a professional relationship, but personally he’s definitely Hustle Gang. That’s something that I feel comfortable saying. He’s a solid cat. He has something that New York has been missing for quite some time and he’s not afraid to be a New Yorker. I salute him for that early on.”

While down at Howard Homecoming for his first performance at the annual party weekend, Dom Kennedy caught up with HNHH and gave a quick update on his next project. The Leimert Park rapper assured us that he has been in the studio recording new music ever since he dropped Get Home Safely.It’s still too earlier for him to give up a title or tentative release date, but he is working, people.

“Man I been working on new music, man, for real. I been working non-stop,” Dom tells our host Baker during the interview. “I put out a little groundwork for my new project before I actually went on road and then immediately after the “Get Home Safely” tour we was just kicking back and working.”

tyga vibe

Despite naming his new LP The Gold Album, it’s no secret that Tyga isn’t exactly the golden child of Young Money. Earlier this month, the “Rack City” rapper vented his frustration with his label of three years on Twitter, and even threatened to leak his album — an outburst which prompted a stern response from YMCMB president Mack Maine and an unfollow from Nicki Minaj.

As a split becomes even more inevitable, T-Raww uses VIBE‘s latest digital cover story to fire more shots at his (soon-to-be-former?) label. Tyga lets it be known that he doesn’t get along with label mates Nicki Minaj and Drake, who he takes particular exception with for being “fake.” The Cali native also criticizes the forced nature of relationships and collaborations within Young Money.

Somehow we don’t see that little Cash Money icon appearing on the back of The Gold Album.
