This comes as no surprise. We’ve been waiting on Kanye West’s Air Yeezy II Red October sneakers for some time now, and it looks like they’ll probably never be released. Last night, Kanye and his wifey-to-be Kim Kardashian stopped by Hot 97’s Angie Martinez Show to discuss a plethora of things, including baby North. But of […]

If you were anywhere near a computer yesterday, you probably got wind of Teyana Taylor and Rihanna‘s nasty cat fight on Twitter. The longstanding beef between Teyana and Rihanna has been brewing silently for years now, with the Bajan bad gal allegedly swagger jacking the Harlem singer’s style. But everything came to a head yesterday […]

Last night was HOT 97’s “Loud Live!” event at the Best Buy Theater in NYC, and it’s safe to say “rest in peace” to the stage. With Fabolous, Wale, and even Mack Wilds taking on the crowd, it was a night that many hip-hop fans will stay talking about. First up was Mack Wilds, who definitely […]

The Inc. is back! OK, that might not entirely be true, but, hell, they’re trying. The last couple of days have been the biggest two days for the Inc. in years. Ja Rule, the company’s star, released “Fresh Outta the Pen.” Then, yesterday, he appeared on The Angie Martinez Show, alongside longtime friend Irv Gotti. While there, the two had […]

The former Hot 97 DJ went on the air this morning to admit a secret he has kept for years...

Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa are one of the most adorable Hip-Pop couples out there! Recently married, the pair sat down with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 to speak candidly on a few things, including: Miley Cyrus’ raunchy VMA performance, the twerk video Amber posted the night before marrying her hubby, and most importantly, the […]

The King of New York has spoken! Earlier today, the good folks at Hot97 aired Peter Rosenberg’s interview with the one-and-only Kendrick Lamar. The topic of the interview was, of course, K.Dot’s epic verse on Big Sean’s “Control.” On the verse, Kendrick called himself the king of New York, while calling out, in a somewhat […]

So, you didn’t get your hands on a pair of Hot 97 Summer Jam tickets this year? You were calling and calling and just not winning them, we understand.  Fortunately for the hip-pop enthusiasts, Hot 97 is streaming the entire 2013 Summer Jam show live and direct right here. This year, over 55,000 fans are […]

The time has come and Mister Cee is finally coming clean… kind of. In a video for the AIDS Healthcare foundation, that is a slightly cringe-worthy, the deejay admits he has an addiction. Last week, Mister Cee proclaimed “I am not gay” and said: “I have an addiction to not only prostitution. I have an addiction […]

On Monday morning, legendary DJ Mister Cee took to New York’s Hot 97 radio station to talk candidly about his arrest stemming from an incident with a male prostitute. He claims the prostitute, who turned out to be an undercover police officer, was actually a woman and not a man as previously reported. “I am not gay,” Cee […]

What was most unsettling about writing the headline to this plea was the little word, “but.” Mister Cee might be gay, but he can still rock the mic. Mister Cee might be gay, but he’s still the homie. Or, Mister Cee might be gay, but his sexuality won’t tarnish Biggie’s legacy. As if Mister Cee’s […]

Here we go again! Hot 97’s deejay, Mister Cee was busted trying to pick up a male prostitute in Brooklyn, yet again. According to a report by the Daily News, the DJ whose real name is Calvin LeBrun, didn’t know that the male sex slanger he approached at Madison St. and Broadway in Bushwick just before midnight on […]
