Kendrick Lamar scored a critical and commercial hit with Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, and many have wondered what he has planned for a follow up.
Supposedly, recording began earlier in 2014 and Lamar’s third album is destined for a September 2014 release, but the rapper himself has spoke very little about its progress.
Rather, his collaborators are coming forward, with the latest being Fort Worth rapper Cardo. In a recent interview with XXL, Cardo revealed he and Lamar recorded a track together, and that material seems destined for Lamar’s third album.
He said: “I’ve completed one cut with Kendrick. It landing on the album is something that we are hopeful for right now.”[…] Read more »

Specifically, she describes, they decided to record with a live band, rather than make tracks so structured this time around. She explained: “The songs on the(first album were very structured. […] Read more »

From her days on Myspace, Nicki Minaj rose to success through the strength of her lyrics and performance. She’s turned into one of the decade’s most successful female rappers, and this past weekend, she rightly deserved the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards.
However, in her acceptance speech, Minaj took a shot at rappers who don’t write all of their own lyrics – be it with a co-writer or a ghostwriter. She said: “But my point is, what I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”
She quickly backpedaled, saying: “No, no, no shade. No, no, no shade.”[…] Read more »
The last time we got anything from Bon Iver, their second sophomore album dropped in 2011. However, a song surfaced this past week from the group – but it’s for the soundtrack to Wish I Was Here, the latest film from Zach Braff.
