Nicki Minaj is making sure everyone knows she’s back in 2014. The Young Money superstar is working on her upcoming album, The Pinkprint, and has released a new track from the project to the public.
Kanye West loves to talk, and now fans will have the opportunity to hear him talk in an extended listen. The mercurial rapper/producer is reportedly planning to release an entire album of spoken word content. ContactMusic reports that the project, which currently has no tentative title or release date, will be a vinyl release and will be over three hours long.
Sexy singer Shakira returns on her latest, self-titled album–her first since becoming a mother last year. Though she’s not quite the pop culture ingenue she was when she emerged in the late 90s/early 2000s, the booty-shaking beauty is still quite the compelling artist.

Young Money: Rise of an Empire is the second official studio compilation from the YMCMB roster following 2013’s Rich Gang. This set features the expected list of A list stars, both from the label and across mainstream hip-hop.

On his latest project, Ross continues his musical trademarks–the ones that have served him so well up to this point and helped to establish his persona.

Wealth and consumption are at the forefront of his mind, yet again, and depending on your taste, it can sound either invigorating or woefully tiresome by the time you get mid-way through Mastermind.
ith everyone expecting more greatness from one of music’s most consistent talents, Pharrell decided to whet the public’s appetite by streaming a preview of Girl on iTunes Radio.
The buzz around Schoolboy Q has been building for the better part of two years. The L.A. rapper’s gift for wordplay, dark sense of humor and marijuana fixation became well-known amongst hip-hop’s underground; and with the release of his 2012 indie album Habits and Contradictions, Q officially became hip-hop’s “Next Big Thing.” Also, his TDE compadre Kendrick Lamar went from underground sensation to major superstar during that time, setting up high expectations for Schoolboy Q’s major label debut, Oxymoron.
