Do These Rappers Think They Are God?

7/25/2015 1:00pm EDT
13 Songs Representing 'God Status’ In Rap
“I am a god!” Okay then Kanye – If you say so! It is no secret that one of the qualifications to be a rapper is to be cocky and confident. Face it, who wants to listen to a rapper who isn’t at least a little bit conceited? Nobody. So, this list has got the conceited part nailed down firmly, as each of these 13 songs exemplify “god status.”

What is “god status” exactly? It’s this idea that, particularly in rap, of likening oneself to God as far as status or being a figurehead, without asserting to be God himself. Because rappers are often braggadocios creatures, many have released songs...

Tyrese Lands His First No. 1 Album

7/20/2015 8:34am EDT
Tyrese Takes 'Black Rose' To The Top Of The Billboard 200
Sigh, yet another musician has seen his dreams realized on the Billboard 200. Although pure sales and lucrative chart longevity have only been kind to some, a number of artists have landed their first number one album this year. Add Tyrese to the list, as Black Rose earns the Billboard 200 crown this week. The 81,000 units isn’t the sexiest total ever, but, for an R&B album, that’s great. Why? – Because R&B has struggled with commercial lucrativeness all year and Black Rose gives the genre its highest impact and first number one album in 2015. Sweetening things more is that most of the...

Meek Mill Makes It Two Weeks In A Row

Meek Mill, Dreams Worth More Than Money © Atlantic
Ricky Ricardo said it best on I Love Lucy – “Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi!” The mouthful of a title should explain it all – all the confoundedness that is. Apparently an updated Billboard chart is upon us already… HUH? How? WHY! Well, good old Billboard essentially released their first chart of their new tabulation cycle.

Basically, to recap, all new music releases across the world are embracing a global release day – Fridays. Because the former new release day was Tuesday, the Billboard charts were centered around that particular day to accurately tabulate sales and streams so on and so forth. So to...

Meek Mill Tops The Billboard 200 With 'Dreams Worth More Than Mo
So the music industry is changing once again – SHOCKER! New albums now are being released globally on Fridays.

What does all this mean? Well, this is the last Billboard chart update that takes place on Thursdays. So let’s all celebrate the final Billboard 200 update on Thursday with yet another artist celebrating his first #1 album.

Does Meek Mill Step His Game Up On 'Dreams Worth More Than Money'?

7/6/2015 11:40am EDT
Review: Meek Mill Brings The Heat On 'Dreams Worth More Than Mon
“It’s hot outside, it’s Meek Milly season!” Swizz Beatz’s proclamation would be a correct one, as Philly rapper Meek Mill came to play on his delayed sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Sometimes a delay ends up being the undoing of an album (looking at you Mariah Carey), but that doesn’t seem to be the case at all for Meek Mill. Dreams Worth More Than Money does not disappoint; it’s a darker and edgier effort than his 2012 debut.

Like his debut, Meek Mill knows how to kick off the album. “Lord Knows” does so with great ferocity. Meek Mill is on autopilot, slaughtering ...

5th Album Is A Charm For Breaking Benjamin

7/2/2015 8:56am EDT
Breaking Benjamin Becomes The Latest Musicians To Score First No
2015 must be the year of chart dreams realized – at least for some artists. Not everybody can boast of the chart glory (looking at you Ciara). For Breaking Benjamin, a band on their fifth album, reaching the penthouse on the Billboard 200 had eluded them four times before. Finally, the fifth time proved to be charm and Dark Before Dawn earned the band their first #1 album. The numbers are rock solid, as Dark Before Dawn shows no darkness whatsoever with 141,000 units, most of which were album sales. BB is certainly doing its thing – kudos boys, kudos.

Being the jam-packed week it was...

Nicki Minaj Is Really Angry At Her Ex - See What He Did

Nicki Minaj Slams Ex On Twitter Over Break-Up Song, Confesses Lo
Nicki Minaj is really angry with her musician ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels for releasing a song that includes details about their relationship. The pair split in 2014 after 12 years together.

In Samuels' song, "Love The Most," the singer laments how he deserves more credit for Minaj's fame and wanting to have a baby with her.

In response to the tune, Minaj slammed her ex-boyfriend on Twitter this morning, accusing Samuels of cheating during their romance.

She wrote, "Don't make me do this... Lesson: don't cheat on a loyal woman. God will punish u. When he does, tell people the truth. Th...

15 Songs You Can ‘Believe’ In
Doesn’t everybody need something to believe in? People believe in a number of things, whether it is God, good (morality), love, dreams becoming reality, or otherwise. Everyone believes in something – something! Many of us believe in the power of music and the messages conveyed through song, particularly prudent messages. This list, made up of songs featuring some form of the word ‘believe’ within its title, is all about having a belief in something. Most of the songs are truly inspiring, though there’s a slip up every now and again. Here are 15 songs you can ‘believe’ in!

Puff Daddy Is King Of The North In 'Game Of Thrones'-Inspired Music Video

6/11/2014 5:01pm EDT
Puffy Daddy
Puff Daddy is hopping on the Game of Thrones hype train with his latest music video, "I Want The Love."

The video, featuring fellow rapper Meek Mill, takes place "in the Swiss Alps" - but it might as well be Winterfell. There, he hangs out with dire... huskies, sits on an Iron Throne of sorts, and cavorts with women we'd describe as Wildlings.

Warning: Profane Language

Perhaps Puffy is underhandedly seeking an appearance on the hit HBO series. After all, Coldplay's drummer Will Champion and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody had cameos in the show.

Outside of the Thrones references, its a b...

Review: MMG 'Self Made, Vol. 3': As Money Pours In, Originality Drops A Smidgen

9/24/2013 6:20pm EDT
http://images.starpulse.com/news/bloggers/6/blog_images/self-mad
Let’s just cut to the chase… this is the third Maybach Music Group compilation.  That’s a statement in itself.  While the saying is that “third time’s charm”, this particular installment actually seems to be less enthralling than the previous installment. Sure, there is plenty of gangsta to respire here, but this time there is a lack of that surefire juggernaut like “Power Circle” or the coolest funeral arrangement tune “Bury Me A G”.  Maybe Rick Ross spent a little too much time counting his bread, but this feels much more like a compilation.  Oh well.

Self Made 3 opens with “Lil Snupe In...

Kendrick Lamar Is MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game, Kanye West Angry About Being #7

Kendrick Lamar
MTV has chosen this year’s “The Hottest MC in the Game,” and it’s Kendrick Lamar, who beat 2 Chainz and Rick Ross.

Lamar topped the 2013 list following the success of his debut album, “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.”

He commented on Rap-Up.com, "It's very important for hip-hop. I love that they have debates like that. We need that. It's competitive. Even though we (are) doing these collaborations and stuff like that and we cool, at the same time, this is still rap. It's still competitive and I'm trying to compete with everybody to be the best."

Mill, real name Robert Williams, was released without charge, but he was not happy about the incident and took to his Twitter.com page to vent his anger at cops' behavior, claiming they held him for questioning just because he was famous.

He tweeted, "cop...
