News:

Check out our Day One coverage of Fun Fun Fun Fest from last weekend in Austin, TX.

We recently watched Janelle Monae (open for Of Montreal) in Houston, and reviewed the show.

Check out my review for a record titled RABDARGAB by a local emcee, Fat Tony. You can also download the album free of charge.

The new trailer for the third season of The Boondocks DVD set can be seen here.

View "The Journey of Mr. Rager," the documentary featured on Kid Cudi's album, here.

Jay Electronica has signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation.

Ryan Leslie is offering a $1 Million reward for his missing laptop, which includes his entire new record.

Lil Bow Wow regrets his rap career at times.

Lil Wayne was recently denied entrance to a Las Vegas casino.

Budden shared that Slaughterhouse was in the studio with Eminem.

Kat Stacks was arrested last week.

Wiz Khalifa was also arrested on drug trafficking suspicion charges; later released on $300k bail.

50 Cent has had enough of the Chelsea Handler rumors.

Saigon's upcoming album will have production from Just Blaze and Kanye West, among others. He also didn't have any kind words for Drake.

Christina Milian has reached a settlement in the divorce with The-Dream.

A cool new website for Jay-Z's greatest hits has been unleashed. Definitely worth checking out from a retrospective POV.

Did Lupe throw sly shots at Soulja Boy in SLR?

RZA won't be on the upcoming Wu-Tang tour.

The Game's been in the studio with DJ Premier. He also wants to reunite G-Unit, but Lloyd Banks gives no F.

MC Hammer says the Jay-Z beef is over.

T.I. is being sued for some dumb shit I'm too lazy to put into words.

In related news, the stipulation of his probation once he's free have been released.

Cudi is on track to do 220k the first week. My guesses were definitely wrong. (I was guessing 80k.)

Diddy and Rick Ross will be releasing a collab EP called Bugatti Boys.

Wayne and Drake are still planning a collab LP. Drake's also working with Premier on his follow-up to TML.

Ne-Yo is a dad now.

Diddy feels betrayed Jay Electronica signed to Jay-Z instead of him.

Is Joseph Kahn working on a new Dr. Dre music video?

For once, I'm with Will.I.Am., as he's called the new Michael Jackson release "disrespectful."

Who the fuck is Souljah Boy to say what goes over someone head? Maybe him and every other dumbass should step up intellectually instead of complaining about how Lupe raps.

So much stuff I don't care about. I really don't want to see any more Saigon news unless it involves a release date. Slaughterhouse and Em sounds promising. As for Bugatti Boys? sounds promising.
