iggy azalea

Iggy Iggy, Iggy, can’t you see? Sometimes your words just irritate me.

Forbes caught plenty of flack when they claimed Iggy Azalea was “running hip-hop” in an article last May (they were eventually forced to reword the title), and the latest bit of press on the Aussie raper is already garnering the same warm, positive response. Speaking with GQ for their upcoming February issue, Iggy essentially crowned herself one of rap’s modern day game-changers.

the-dream

The-Dream is ready to take over the new year. The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter is set to release two EPs this year in Crown and Jewel. Lead by the T.I.-assisted single “That’s My Sh*t,” the first EP Crown is set to arrive on March 31 via the Radio Killa’s Contra Paris label with Jewel arriving after at a later date. In an announcement via VIBE, The-Dream breaks down what fans can expect on both projects.

“Crown is more modern R&B, and Jewel will be more what you might think of as my songwriter side, the songs I might have given to other artists before,” The-Dream explains. “If you put me in a box, Jewel is more what you get when that box is open. But I’m not limited by any box I’ve been put in—every year I’m expanding and growing, and it makes for a more interesting plot.”

DJ Mustard dominated the charts and clubs in 2014, including Big Sean’s popular anthem “I Don’t F**k With You.” Released late last year, the record was originally in the hands of Justin Bieber, who posted two clips of the song on Instagram back in March. Speaking with MTV News, DJ Mustard clears up the confusion and explains how the song went from Bieber to G.O.O.D. Music’s Detroit Player.

We all just didn’t communicate; nobody communicated with my team. [There’s] not no hard feelings or anything like that. It’s not a beef or no crazy sh– like that, but we didn’t communicate. I was excited about the record. When I got in with Sean, Sean had already picked the record. I’m like, ‘Dang, Justin got this record.’ And I always kept telling my management like, ‘Yo, they got this record,’ and everybody was like, ‘Well, we reaching, and nobody else is reaching out to us. So what do you wanna do? And I was like, you know what, just give it to Sean, because me and Sean got a relationship. And I ended up doing four songs on Sean’s album.”
