Today (Jan. 16) marks what would've been the 35th birthday of R&B queen Aaliyah, who tragically passed away on Aug. 25, 2001, in a plane crash in the Bahamas. To add to the countless social media tributes and tunes surely spinning on playlists, Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee put together a dedication mix for his 'Throwback at Noon' hour.
Kid Ink's major label debut album, 'My Own Lane,' suffered a delay from its original December release, but that obviously wasn't too much of an issue. The effort still had decent sales numbers and finished at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and Top Digital Albums charts.
Iggy Azalea's long-awaited debut LP, 'The New Classic,' is steadily approaching, and the Australian rapper is giving fans a succinct reminder of why it's anticipated with 'Animal Noise.' She joins a short list of artists -- including Rick Ross and T-Pain -- who's promoting an upcoming release with a "freestyle."
Mariah Carey's long-delayed album, 'The Art of Letting Go,' is expected to drop this year, which also coincidentally marks the five-year anniversary of her marriage to Nick Cannon. The 'Beautiful' soungstress posed with her husband for the cover of the latest issue of 'Ebony.'
Robert Glasper disproved the idea that jazz is irrelevant with the success of his Grammy Award-winning 'Black Radio' and its 2013 sequel. Kenneth Whalum, III is another artist who's doing the same with 'Away,' his new single featuring Big K.R.I.T.
The idea of what could come out of Pusha T's 20-day studio session with the Neptunes is enough to cause massive excitement. That anticipation has multiplied by a lot now that No Malice is back in the mix. Clipse have reunited.
Kid Ink spent the better part of 2013 at work on his major label debut, 'My Own Lane.' The project was originally intended to come out in December, but got pushed back slightly to drop today (Jan. 7). Fans can see if the extra weeks paid off by streaming his album.
On 'What Happened,' Maino and Jadakiss talk about the state of New York rap and lament about the city's lack of unity, radio stations like Hot 97 and Power 105.1's lack of support for local artists and strippers being the new A&R's. However, perhaps the biggest problem is a zombie outbreak.
T-Pain's newest single finds him in a very bitter place. Even the 'Rappa Ternt Sanga' has trouble with unfaithful females on 'I'm F---ing Done' featuring Tay Dizm, a rapper on T-Pain's Nappy Boy Digital record label.
