Thanks to Roshan for putting this together.

Hip-Hop Music Round-UpThis week's top 5 albums in Rap and R&B, respectively, according to Billboard.com:

Rap:
1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
2. Kendrick Lamar - good Kid, m.A.A.d. City
3. Flo Rida - Wild Ones
4. ASAP Rocky - LongLiveASAP
5. T.I. - Trouble Man

R&B:
1. Rihanna - Unapologetic
2. Alicia Keys - Girl on Fire
3. Michael Bolton - A Tribute to Hittsville USA
4. Charlie Wilson - Love, Charlie
5. Jennifer Lopez - Greatest Hits

(Billboard has separated Rap and R&B, but clearly with the addition of Flo Rida under "Rap," and Michael Bolton under "R&B," they have failed)

NEWS:

Here is MTV's annual "Hottest MC" List.

10. Meek Mill
9. Future
8. ASAP Rocky
7. Kanye West
6. Big Sean
5. Drake
4. Nas
3. Rick Ross
2. 2 Chainz
1. Kendrick Lamar

...Discuss!

Kanye wasn't happy. Neither was ASAP Rocky.

Big Boi is heading out on a full US tour with Killer Mike.

Here's a cool feature Fake Shore Drive did cataloging the 25 Best Kanye West Beats since 2006.

Check out the tracklisting to Lil Wayne's upcoming album, I'm Not A Human Being 2.

Here's the tracklisting for Ghostface Killah's Twelve Reasons to Die, out April 16th.

Method Man says there will be a 20th anniversary album for the Wu-Tang. Y'all feel old yet?

Kendrick Lamar and RZA are a couple of guests slated for Kid Cudi's upcoming LP.

Mobb Deep is celebrating their 20th year as a group. Check out their tour dates.

Beanie Sigel has added some jail time for drug charges.

Chris Brown sucks. Now he yelled at a valet for $10.

Danny Brown has announced a full US tour with Kitty Pride.

Yelawolf will be dropping a new mixtape, Trunk Muzik Returns, very soon.

Frank Ocean is being sued for a production credit on "Lost."

The reason T.I. and Kendrick Lamar's couldn't make the album was because the Gotye sample couldn't be cleared. The sequel to Heavy is the Head is about 60 percent done.

A$AP and Kanye need to check themselves and album sales before either try to claim to be no. 1 right now. Kanye thinks cause he bought Sway a TV he should be listed as number 1? He hasn't even had a major hit since MBDTF and Watch The Throne wasnt anything special. There have been plenty of times where he's been on top but as of right now, minus Big Sean, I think that list was pretty accurate. 2 chainz is everywhere and everyone is partying and clubbing to his beats right now, which is exactly what his music is about. A$AP on the other hand JUST started to blow up and his hottest track right now is big solely because of the features on it, which are all rappers bigger than him. Fuck trends, that was the worst rant I've read in a long time from a rapper who's putting themself on a pedestal.
