Ludacris took over ATL’s Means Street Studios to give a select few in the industry an early preview to his forthcoming project Ludaversal which drops March 31st. Guests include DJ Drama, DJ Trauma, Big K.R.I.T., rap group Two Nine, producer Drumma Boy.
Last night Wale took to Seinfeld’s TOM’s Diner for the listening session to the March 31st release of The Album About Nothing. Guests were treated to wings, burgers, chicken wraps and Belaire Rose while Wale introduced tracks from his upcoming release. While I got there late and only caught the tail end of the project, “The Matrimony” featuring Usher did it for me. Not sure if he’ll make the cut a single but if it does make it to the radio? Over! Guests include DJ Drama, Rick Ross, Miss Info, Todd Moscowitz, Geespin, Peter Rosenberg, Ebro and many others! The Album About Nothing drops March 31st.

Kendrick Lamar is on a great press run and his latest stop is gracing the cover of Billboards latest issue. In the cover story on Billboard Kendrick talks about police brutality and Iggy Azalea. He also talks about almost being done with his new album, not revealing the title of said album and much more.
Cole World and The Dreamville Team took over The Delano for New Years Eve hosted by Yes Julz. Ne-Yo, Victor Cruz, Johnny Football and others slid by to enjoy the performance! 2014 Forrest Hill Drive is in stores now.
Tinashe takes a minute from the music to pose half nude for “V Magazine’s” annual music issue.
I don’t even buy Rolling Stone but I am all the way here for this one. Nicki Minaj has dominated the 4th quarter and this cover shot seals the deal. Go get her new album The Pinkprint on iTunes below.

I was waiting for these photos to show up. The Slap Heard Around allegedly happened at Khaled’s bday function at LIV on Sunday night. According to DJ Sam Sneaker, Rick Ross’ DJ, Diddy laid an open handed smack to the face of Aubrey Graham over “respect” issues. However, since the discovery of the altercation, neither party has confirmed or denied the events that went down behind the popular nightclub. One would think that with how FAST news travels on Social Media, this story would be confirmed with some type of video or photograph indicating an altercation ACTUALLY went down. Until anything is confirmed, this is all he say/she say.
Last night, J. Cole stopped in the 97214 to play his upcoming album (but not before stopping by a fan’s house to play it), 2014 Forest Hills Drive, for a few radio/industry types. Initially, a live tweeting event was sanctioned to accompany this gallery of pictures (these were asked to be kept to a bare minimum), but those permitted to attend the session were asked to please keep details about the event private. Word on this did not come down until late in the day; out of respect for the artist, we certainly obliged. Overall, though, it was a very enjoyable experience. You can grab the Fayetteville, NC native’s third studio album everywhere on December 9th. Pre-orders HERE.
Nicki Minaj, Drake & Lil Wayne all link up to shoot the official visual for ‘Only’ and we have some behind the scenes pictures for you. The video should be on its way sooner then later.
