Lots of tour dates, nice. Only ones I can recommend are Kanye, Big Boi, and J Cole, all solid, good in that order.

Wayne should be arrested for making the How to Love song, fan-made Childish Gambino video may be the best thing I've seen all week, and hoping Wale's album is just on par with the mixtape, I'd settle for that.

And that king of hip hop thing is a joke.

Funnily enough this roundup counts as the third time AP posted Martians vs. Goblins.

Also, that Freaks and Geeks video is pretty much the best thing ever.

Another point of news in the hip hop world: Kid Cudi scrapped his newest mixtape, A Man Named Scott, because of his focus on his rock band Wizard

The MGK link redirects to the link under it.
On that King of Hip Hop thing, it just goes to show how dumb the general media is, because the rappers that got the highest ratings (aside from Kanye and Flocka) rated the lowest on everything else.
