I reviewed Kid Cudi's album and got people mad, apparently. Read the fuss here.

Download our October mixtape here.

Lil Wayne is the first to release a number one album from prison since 2pac. And as of this past Thursday, he is no longer incarcerated, but is prohibited from using drugs or alcohol. AKA, he'll back in jail soon.

Can't say the same about T.I., as he checked in on Monday. His wife has also plead not guilty to the drug charges.

Here's footage of Kid Cudi acting like an ass in Hollywood.

New J. Cole mixtape called Friday Night Lights coming this Friday.

Freeway and Just Blaze will be working on his upcoming album.

We have G.O.O.D. Fridays (Kanye West), Monster Mondays (Swizz Beatz), Blue Fridays (Lloyd Banks) and now Timbo Thursdays.

Public Enemy raised $75,000 for a completely fan-funded album.

George Bush says the Kanye comment was the worst thing about his presidency. Not 9/11 OR Katrina, though. Just some rapper talking shit.

Wyclef Jean
will be releasing an EP entitled If I Were President on December 7.

B.o.B. is working on a new mixtape.

Weezy might publish his prison journals as a book.

Jay-Z's "response" to the MC Hammer diss. Hammer says he already won, though.

Former Geto Boys member Willie D will be going to jail for fraud.

Kanye West will be performing at the Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade, and releasing a cologne in 2011.

Drake will be going on a European tour soon, and is taking J. Cole along for the ride. He also confirmed he's working with Justin Timberlake on a collab.

T.I.'s new album cover can be seen here, where the album may also be preordered. No Mercy hits stores December 7th.

Gucci Mane's charges have been dropped.

The N.E.R.D. song produced by Daft Punk was "a ten year old favor" being cashed in.

Nicki Minaj disses Lil Kim in "Roman's Revenge," then denies it. Lil Kim just disses her.

iTunes will allow 90 second previews soon.

Rick Ross' Teflon Don has been certified Gold.

Joe Budden
mentioned that Slaughterhouse and Eminem are recording.

Cee-Lo's "Fuck You" will be on Glee in 2 weeks.

Speaking of which, William Shatner sang this song on Late Night and hilarity ensued.

That really was a terrible trade, even at the time you knew it was bad.

get it. pitchfork hated it (only review i've seen so far) but they hate all the n.e.r.d. records. it's definitely as good as any given previous effort.

bummer you don't like new Cudi, I'm getting a lot out of it.
The atmospheres within the music adds so much to this record compared to the others, and no one in the comments of the review seem to mention The Mood, one of the best songs.

A sober Weezy? that'll be some interesting post incarceration material, now if we can only do something about Gucci Mane. And if the Lil Wayne prision journals book idea goes through, i'd definitely buy that. as for a new B.o.B. mixtape? That will see no objection from me.
