ti logic 500x250

T.I.’s 9th studio album Paperwork is in stores now and getting mixed reviews from listeners. Despite achieving hit songs on the radio with ‘No Mediocre’ and ‘About The Money’, Tip’s new LP is set to sell only 65-70k copies in the first week. With his stature and fan base, this number is a little disappointing.

According to HDD, Logic’s debut album Under Pressure, released through VMG/Def Jam is also projected to sell 65-70k units in the first week at retail, something he will be quite proud of.

tyga threatens to leave young money

Uh oh, more label trouble. T-Raww is the latest rapper to express frustration at Young Money and this time it’s for not being allowed to release The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. What do you think will come of this? Tyga’s recently been linked with Kanye, perhaps a G.O.O.D. Music deal?

Hit the jump to view some more tweets including a response from President Mack Maine.

UPDATE: In a recent interview with VIBE, Tyga states that he doesn’t like Drake as a person and that he tends to distance himself from Young Money. The beginning of the end? Check below after the tweets for full quotes.

What seemed like only a matter of time, Chief Keef has been dropped from Interscope Records. Keef dropped his debut album Finally Rich under the label and moved 50,000 records in the first week, and just under 200,000 to date.

The news of him being dropped was first broken by AllHipHop, who had unnamed sources say things like, “Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable (once Keef moved to Los Angeles) but Interscope didn’t seem interested in dropping a new album. Keef’s team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved.” Since then, Keef has confirmed being dropped via a Twitter post where he tells his brother that he’s been dropped for a week.

What do you think about this decision? Was it the right move? Weigh in below.

chance the rapper

Despite dropping ‘No Better Blues‘ just last week, Chance The Rapper has been pretty much silent since the release of his groundbreaking mixtape Acid Rap. Music wise that is — Chance has sold out sevearl shows and has appeared on many songs with other artists since the release of Acid Rap. Regardless, that’s all about to change by the end of the year.

Chance recently sat down with Billboard to announce a new album titled Surf along with his Social Experiment band, and said that it would be out before the end of the year. The likes of Frank Ocean and Rick Rubin are involved and apparently Chance has recorded with everyone from the Migos to J. Cole. Bottom line: we’re in for a treat.

Check out Chance’s entire interview here and be on the lookout for more information surrounding Surf.

We already knew that Snoop Dogg’s next album is entirely produced by longtime collaborator Pharrell but that’s not the end of their relationship for this era.

Billboard reports that Snoop has in fact signed with Skateboard P’s i am OTHER imprint whose parent label is Columbia Records. Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson are some of the confirmed guests on the album. This is sounding good on paper, hopefully the result will be equally good.
