Everything About The Rock’s First Official Rap Verse Is Funny

I can still remember hearing that Wyclef Jean was going to have the Rock on his single. This was 21 years ago, when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was on his fourth or fifth reign as WWF World Champion. The Rock wasn’t a movie star yet — he’d make his debut as a terrible CGI effect in The Mummy Returns a year later — but he already seemed like he might be the coolest person on earth. The Rock had been a shit-talking, egocentric heel who’d become a crowd favorite simply because he was so good at egoce...

J. Cole Brings Bars Back to the Barclays Center: Concert Review

One of the most endearing attributes of J. Cole’s career has always been his transparency. For over a decade, the Carolina rapper has amassed a legion of followers and a seat in the pantheon of hip-hop because he makes listeners feel like they know him through his music and his common-man lifestyle. This familiarity creates […]

21 Savage Surrenders To Police On What His Lawyer Says Are ICE-Related Charges

During Super Bowl weekend in 2019, ICE agents arrested 21 Savage in Atlanta. Savage, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was born in the UK, and he came to Atlanta with his family as a child. Savage’s lawyers claimed that he’d applied for a new visa in 2017 and that the process was ongoing. He was released on bond nine days after his arrest. Yesterday, Savage turned himself into authorities on charges of drug and weapon possession stemming from that 2019 arrest, and he was released on ...

Lil Nas X Conquered Pop On His Own Terms

Lil Nas X was going to be a one-hit wonder. This much seemed obvious to me. “Old Town Road” had all the makings of a fleeting career. A half-rap, half-country novelty hit about a lean-drinking cowboy who’ll ride ’til he drops, made viral through savvy promotion on TikTok and Twitter, buoyed by controversy over whether it should qualify for Billboard‘s country charts, then sent into overdrive by a remix featuring the “Achy Breaky Heart” guy — it was more a meme than a song, a joyous joke adults a...

Drake Offers a Risk-Free Playlist of His Greatest Tropes in ‘Certified Lover Boy’: Album Review

Last month, in response to being doxxed by Kanye West, as their feud escalated while their respective album releases approached, Drake posted the most carefree possible video of himself — chuckling in a convertible, the Toronto night sky gliding behind him, a lover’s heart etched into his hairline, beaming and seemingly even tickled by the threat.

Stream Drake’s New Album Certified Lover Boy

It’s been more than a year since Drake released “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” which was billed as the lead single from a new album called Certified Lover Boy. In the interim, he’s pushed back the album a couple times and released the stopgap EP Scary Hours 2, which ended up becoming a record-setting smash hit. Now, after a lengthy buildup that saw tensions between Drake and Kanye West reigniting, CLB is finally here, ridiculous cover art and all.

Drake Reveals Certified Lover Boy Features Via Billboards

Billboards — not Billboard magazine, but actual brick-and-mortar advertising billboards — are a pretty fun way for artists to announce musical endeavors, especially when those artists can be sure that the billboards will be all over social media within an hour anyway. Earlier this summer, Turnstile used a billboard to announce their new album Glow On. Drake has just done something similar on a larger scale. Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy is set to arrive tomorrow, and we don’t yet know th...

J. Cole Is Very Much On His Game in ‘The Off-Season’: Album Review

How does a star exit the stage gracefully? Rare is it to leave on one’s own terms, legacy intact, remembered in retirement. The more common route is perhaps to fade into obscurity with a constellation of diminishing successes. Ostensibly conscious of this trajectory, J. Cole appears to have already mapped out his own departure. In […]

21 Savage Says He Does NOT Miss Amber Rose: I’m “Married” & “Happily in Love”

21 Savage says that he’s completely over his relationship with Amber Rose. In fact, he says that she’s the last thing on his mind because he’s “married” and “happily in love” with another woman. During a press run for his new project Savage Mode 2 earlier this month, the “Runnin” rapper was asked if he missed his ex-girlfriend and whether he’d made a song about her before. “Do I miss her? Hell nah,” he said in an interview with DJ Scream & Big Bank’s Big Facts podcast. “I ain’t made no songs abo...

Can 21 Savage Copyright or Trademark the Word ‘Yessirskiii’?

Rapper 21 Savage is getting annoyed at the number of artists using a word he claims he coined, “Yessirskii” — so much that he tweeted on Monday that he wants “50 percent of every song” that uses it. “I need 50 percent of every song that come out with a yessirskiii hook y’all getting outrageous […]
