future honest

Future’s Honest album (out April 22) was made available to stream earlier this week, but there was a few glaring omissions: the full version of the Drake-assisted “Never Satisfied” and the hotly-anticipated “Benz Friendz (Watchutola)” collaboration with the elusive André 3000. Thankfully we haven’t had to wait long for the latter, which has surfaced online this afternoon. Dungeon Family, ya bish.

It was all good just a week 21 years ago. RZA and Raekwon haven’t exactly been subtle about their indifferences lately, but The Chef took the broken safety off in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

Chicago’s socio-economic troubles are no secret. In fact, a recent study showed that 92% of young black males in the city are jobless, but some of Chi Town’s biggest rap names are coming together to work on a solution.

Ah, yes. It’s never a dull moment when TMZ cameras catch Nick Young and Iggy Azalea out on a date. Remember their first date when a pap decided to play a game of Guess Who? and kindly amplified the awkwardness by a thousand trillion? TMZ pounced once again as the hot young couple were spotted leaving a club in Sunset Boulevard when Nick, aka Swaggy P, gave us another golden moment.

“I’m the star. I am Swaggy P. You see what I’m going in this car with?” he said, motioning to his Aussie girlfriend. “What I’ma do with this shouldn’t be legal! All that ass?!”

And you can’t blame the dude. At. All.

Major Lazer really put a cool twist to their new “Aerosol Can” video. Veteran graf artist Mike Giant stars in the clip, getting to work on the lyrics from the group’s Pharrell collaboration. Though, he’s not technically using a spray can, you get the picture here. As eskay pointed out, Giant is a co-founder of world renowned graffiti crew Rebel8.

Fans of chained heat, women behind bars, and khaki scrubs rejoice! The women of Netflix’s hit series Orange Is The New Black are coming back for season 2….and like all Netflix series, all 13 episodes will be available to watch on June 6th.

I know a lot of folks who are huge OITNB fans. I watched about 3 eps from the first season, but honestly didn’t get catch the wave. Definitely didn’t feel the need to binge watch the way I devoured season 1 and 2 or House of Cards. Do you love it?

Well, I’ll say this…the trailer for Orange Is The New Black Season 2 definitely looks interesting. Especially the dynamic between fan favorite Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Parker and new castmember, veteran actress Lorraine Toussaint as Yvonne “Vee” Parker.

It’s been almost a year since he dropped Owl Pharaoh, but Travi$ Scott is still reaping the fruits of his debut project, which spawned fire-starters like “Upper Echelon” and “Quintana.” The G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle rookie’s fanbase spans as far as Japan, and ILLROOTS were on hand to capture La Flame’s first trip to the Land of the Rising Sun late last year.

In this documentary, Houston to Osaka, we see Travi$ hit up BAPELAND, kick it with Japanese rapper Verbal (who has worked with Kanye West and Pharrell) and tear down a few stages. About halfway through Travi$ Scott plays us some new beats, and needless to say, they sound pretty crazy.

Styles P wasn’t the only rapper doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit the other day; to promote the release of Illmatic XX, Nas also hopped on the Hip Hop Heads forum to answer questions from fans. The topics ranged from Illmatic, obviously, to his favorite rappers, albums and movie directors. Nas also threw out plenty of knowledge darts and even debunked the myth once and for all that he ghost wrote Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” In case you missed it, here are the 10 things we learned from Nas’ Reddit AMA.
