To round em out, here's Big Boi's tracklisting for Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.

Big Sean has delayed his album release until early 2013.

Cash Money Records hit a milestone - 500 Million Singles sold.

Welp. Nas owes over $1 Million in unpaid taxes.

"Nicki Minaj Says Some Retailers Won't Carry Her New Album & "Set You Up To Fail""

""It's hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well, and they didn't want to take a chance," she explained."

Found some key words Nicki.
