2 Chainz Drops A So-So Surprise Album In 'Collegrove'
Surprise albums are “all the rave” these days – urban, pop, and country artists are all opting for the strategy.

II: #METIME, which only performed so-so on the Billboard 200. One recurring collaborator appears on Collegrove – Lil Wayne. So, how does Collegrove stack up? Read on…read on!

“Dedication” opens with a laid back intro that eventually turns into an old school southern rap joint. Comp...

This list examines some of the most important albums in rap’s history – what an arduous task to say the least! Even with fewer years under its belt, there have been ...

Frustrated Lil' Wayne Throws Mic & Storms Off Stage During Milan
Lil' Wayne threw down his microphone and walked off stage in anger after he experienced some technical difficulties while performing during Milan Fashion Week.

The rapper was performing during the Philipp Plein show and wasn't getting a great reception from the concertgoers. In video obtained by TMZ, the rapper asks the crowd to put their hands up in the air, and just a few people oblige.

There was some speculation that there may have been a language barrier, or perhaps not a lot of those in attendance were big rap fans.

A rep for the rapper later told the website that Lil Wayne was fru...

Albums Featuring Numbers in Their Titles

Albums Featuring Numbers in Their Titles, Since 2000
Ah, what’s in an album title? A lot, depending on the respective album. In the case of the albums that grace this list, numbers play a role in the title and in some cases have significance. In other cases, the numbers are merely an easy way to keep up with the album number. Regardless, here’s a list of albums featuring numbers in their title – all since 2000 – and the meaning of the album’s title.

1) All of Adele's albums

Pop superstar Adele seems to love numbers, particularly her ages. All three of Adele’s studio albums (19, 21, and 25) all feature numbers in the title. While it might ...

Best Albums Since 2000 That Didn’t Win Album Of The Year
Who doesn’t want their achievements honored with an award? Winning an award whether you’re an actor, author, musician, or otherwise is considered an honor – high praise and recognition for the respective art. For a musician, nothing is more prestigious than winning a Grammy, with the most coveted Grammy being for album of the year. Just to be nominated is an honor, but to win the award is much sweeter.

Unfortunately, only a select few have won the Grammy for album of the year – it’s more of a rarity than a surefire thing. Arguably, the 00s and 10s have delivered some oddball choices when i...

Lil Wayne was kicked off a private jet on Monday after the pilot of the plane told him he couldn't smoke a joint on board and he lit up anyway.

The rapper chartered a plane out of Fort Lauderdale airport in Florida and was told there was no smoking during the flight, but shortly after takeoff he lit up a marijuana cigarette.

The pilot turned the plane around just 17 minutes into the flight and went right back to the airport they took off from, where he kicked Wayne and his entourage off the jet.

10 'All Time Low' Songs In Musician’s Careers
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” Yep, that’s the sentiment of these songs that mark the ‘all time lows’ – the bottom of artist’s career as far as the objectionable, horrific song. No, it doesn’t mean that the album wasn’t successful (though in some instances, that’s the case), but these songs could be described as detritus (fun word) aka GARBAGE! Why couldn’t these musicians have avoided such a mess? Here are 10 head shakable moments for your listening pleasure worth scrutinizing.

10 Deceptively Written Songs
Some songs just aren’t intended for literal interpretation. Some of the best-written songs are actually best interpreted figuratively. The 10 songs gracing this list are written cleverly, in a deceptive fashion. In other words, the lyrics (and sometimes title) transcend what’s literally being said. These 10 aren’t ‘classic’ examples – all are contemporary – but, the figurative, deceptiveness is definitely notable.

5 Big-Time Rappers Whose Stock Needs A Lift

Sometimes artists go through a dry spell. In rap in particular, hotness just doesn’t last forever. I mean, wouldn’t LL Cool J still be a hot commodity commercially if that were the case (no shade LL, no shade)? Here, I have identified five big-time rappers who need good things to happen for them in the near-future/future. One or two names may be surprising, but there is a rationale for all five. Hear a bro out!

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

The 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2013

Throughout 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to review lots of albums.  Some were extremely special (Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City among ‘em), while others were D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-I-N-G. Not to be a negative noodle or kill anyone’s happy vibe, but sometimes artists lay an egg… a really rotten one.   Not every album here is just awful, but contextually, they didn’t quite live up to the hype.  Some were rotten eggs though!
