Dr. Dre’s Detox isn’t coming out. If you’re a hip-hop fan, then you probably knew this already. Detox, the potential follow-up to Dre’s brilliant 2001 album, has been scheduled to come out since 2002, back when Denzel Washington was attached to the project. But the dream of a Detox album finally died this week when Dawaun Parker, who […]

Leave it to hip-hop to speak up when no one else will. So far, hip-hop has been the only musical genre to speak about the atrocities happening in Ferguson, Mo. First up to bat was J.

Everything from the name down to his rhyme style is completely different from any rap artist out right now. He doesn’t Shmoney Dance, he’s no Bobby Shmurda.

Everyone is doing it! Rihanna and Eminem took it upon themselves to join in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge fun during the second night of their Monster tour at Detroit’s Comerica Park.

Eminem’s been busy touring the country with Bajan bad gal Rihanna, but he’s found time to record a new track for Denzel Washington’s upcoming film The Equalizer. Unfortunately, the preview doesn’t feature a whole verse from Eminem, but you can hear him in the background saying, “It’s too late to start over” and “his is the […]

Chris Pratt has another skill to add to his already impressive resume. That’s right, y’all. The Guardians of the Galaxy star is a father, talented actor – and a rapper? OK, not really, but he definitely could be. Pratt stopped by “The Whoolywood Shuffle” radio show hosted by DJ Whoo Kid to discuss his latest […]

When it comes to Rihanna, one thing is for sure: Her no-phucks-given approach to fashion does anything but bore us or put us to sleep—even though she might sometimes look ready to catch a few Z’s herself.
