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.”

Crooner Elijah Blake’s Drift EP has been lowkey playing in my iTunes since its release. I think it’s his range and diversity that really intrigues me. Produced By Trakmatik, Elijah dropped another more upbeat number for the fans.

mero young thug lifestyle

For his latest mission, Complex sent The Kid Mero out into the streets of Manhattan to ask the question that has bugged people all summer: what the hell is Young Thug saying on “Lifestyle“? Shit, I couldn’t even tell you that without sneaking onto Rap Genius (and then immediately feeling guilty about it because I should probably already know), but pat on the back for these people for even trying. Shouts to dude at 1:55 for saying eff Thugga and getting his struggle raps off.

So, the previously released XXL x G-Unit documentary wasn’t actually the full thing. Today (Oct 23), the rap mag released an all new 25-minute documentary video with the entire G-Unit family. Shot live at Fif’s mansion, his “lil brothers” — Banks, Yayo, Buck and Kidd Kidd really open up about what it’s like to live altogether. From their fallout to how they managed to put it all back together, The Unit holds little back as they let you that it’s really blood in, blood out.

“You’re young and you make mistakes in life,” Buck says in the documentary, reflecting on his attitude back in the day. “I’m my own man, I’ma do what I want to. I’ve always been the real compulsive one. And being that one helped and hurt me.”

drake-tyga-2

The internal affairs unit over at YMCMB must be in a serious crisis state based on the recent events surrounding Tyga, Drake and Nicki Minaj. After T-Raww publicly dissed his label via Twitter, the rapper opened more about his ill feelings toward some of his label mates in VIBE’s new digital cover story. While Tyga just maintains that he was just being honest — Drizzy got his kicks a different way. Very digital.

Tyga: Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.
Why?
Tyga: I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together.

Read both Drake and Tyga’s reactions after the VIBE story broke below…
