NEWS:

Will 2012 bring us TWO new DMX albums?

Birdman has made a $5 million bet on the Superbowl.

The new Artist and Senior VP of A&R at MoTown is Ne-Yo.

French Montana
didn't sign with Kanye West because he doesn't know how to use e-mail. His words, not mine.

Guys, Rihanna got a really dumb tattoo that's worth sharing.

Here's the tracklisting for Ski Beatz' upcoming record, Twilight.

Odd Future is touring the West Coast.

The first single from the G.O.O.D. Music compilation is rumored to be titled "Lamborghini, Murci," and will feature Kanye West, Big Sean & Pusha T.

Slaughterhouse will release their LP on May 15th. The crew has also released tour dates.

DMX recently went to the hospital for food poisoning.

The CEO of Cash Money Records (including Birdman) are implicated in a sexual assault case.

GZA will be a guest lecturer at Oxford University.

Tyga is going on tour.

Blu recently performed terribly (according to fans) and one of them was bold enough to hop on stage and call him out.

Upcoming artist Nneka has released her tracklisting for her upcoming album.

Machine Gun Kelly was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Cory Gunz was recently arrested on a gun possession charge in NY and could face up to 3.5 years in prison. For those keeping track, this is the exact reason why Lil Wayne went to jail.

Bow Wow owes taxes/money dating back to 2006.

She's really gone off the deep end.
Hopefully you have or can catch him on his midwest tour. One of the most energetic shows I've been to.
