robin thicke

Robin Thicke is the latest celeb to fall victim to the prescription pill epidemic. The Hollywood Reporter recently got a hold of his deposition files for the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit. In recorded statements, Thicke admits to being high on Vicodin and alcohol when he showed up to record the song with Pharrell. The singer also admits to lying in numerous interviews when asked if he was involved in writing “Blurred Lines.”

Ultimately, Robin admits to having a problem with painkllers and says he has been high in every interview conducted over the last year.

Q: Were you present during the creation of ‘Blurred Lines’?
Thicke: I was present. Obviously, I sang it. I had to be there.
Q: When the rhythm track was being created, were you there with Pharrell?
Thicke: To be honest, that’s the only part where — I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted — I — I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit. So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was and I — because I didn’t want him — I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.”

Rick Ross is looking slimmer than ever these days (contrary to the screenshot above), and his new-found fitness is clearly rubbing off onto his work. Just six months after dropping his sixth studio album, Mastermind, the MMG mogul is prepping a new project called Hood Billionaire. And for the first single, Rozay rides down Elvis Presley Blvd. with Memphis’ own Project Pat.

UPDATE: Watch the official (and pretty hilarious) video below, directed by DRE Films.

wiz khalifa

Wiz Khalifa sits down with Pitchfork to weigh in on the weed in Canada, New York and Europe (step it up, Europe), married life, being a father and whether dreamcatchers actually work. Wiz also reveals a pretty amazing coincidence involving Sting, who apparently once rubbed Amber Rose’s pregnant stomach, only for his song “I’ll Be Watching You” to be playing when baby Bash was born.

big krit alt-j

As an MC proudly carrying the traditions of Southern rap on his back, it’s not often we see Big K.R.I.T. stepping outside of his comfort zone like this. Today the Mississippi native makes a surprise appearance on the remix to indie rock band alt-J’s latest single, “Every Other Freckle,” popping up early for a brief yet choice guest verse. alt-J may hail from the North of England — which is even further removed from Southern hip-hop than the geographical distance suggests — but their sluggish, trunk-rattling rhythm works surprisingly well with Krizzle’s style.

tinashe aquarius

Tinashe’s Aquarius has only spawned a couple of songs — great ones at that — so far with “Pretend” featuring A$AP Rocky and, of course, the ScHoolboy Q-assisted “2 On.” With a little under a month before her debut album drops, the West Coast songstress serves up a stream of “Feels Like Vegas,” a synth-soaring anthem produced by powerhouse pop duo Stargate (Iggy Azalea “Black Widow,” Rihanna “Diamonds”). ScHoolboy Q contributes ad-libs, but another verse from the TDE rapper wouldn’t have hurt here.

Available to pre-order on iTunes now, Aquarius arrives October 7.
