The Game Leads Albums To Check Out
The first Friday in October brought the comeback of one of music’s iconic artists, Janet Jackson. That is a big deal without question. This week, things are much quieter. This week is the “calm before the storm,” as the next couple of release weeks are jam-packed with newbies to add to the collection. Still, there’s a West Coast rapper and a pop star/actress leading the way this week.

1) The Game, Documentary 2 (Blood Money / Entertainment One U.S.)

Fetty Wap Takes Top Honors On The Billboard 200
It’s a good week to be a “Trap Queen” – or something like that! Rap newcomer Fetty Wap sees his self-titled debut album take top honors on the Billboard 200. That’s right, Fetty Wap debuted at #1 on the big chart, to the tune of 129,000 units – not too shabby. Wait at minute – how much did Fetty Wap actually sell? 75,000 copies – 54,000 copies less than it impacted when streams and tracks are considered. But first place is first place, right?

Fetty Wap wasn’t the only story of the Billboard 200 this week. Don Henley lands in third place with Cass County, selling more copies than Fetty...

Shady Music Moments From 2015

When The Shade Hits The Fan: 9 Shady Music Moments From 2015
Musicians have been “throwing shade” at each other for years – understatement. In fact, before it was known colloquially as throwing shade, the esteemed classical composers were literally ripping each other apart with their harsh critiques of one another. Each and every year, new shade is thrown into the hands of the media, which in turn is presented to the people for their entertainment pleasure.

1) Empire (Season 2, Episode 1) Vs. Donnie McClurkin

Even gospel artists – those singing for “the glory of God” are subject to shade. In its disjointed second season premiere, hip-hop soa...

Fetty Wap Has Arrived, How Does His Debut Album Stack Up?

9/30/2015 11:30am EDT
Review: Fetty Wap Shows Promise On Self-Titled Debut Album
Perhaps had Future not arrived before him, the views on rap newcomer Fetty Wap would be different. Future and Fetty Wap aren’t “one and the same,” but there are some clear similarities. Both rappers incorporate more pitch into their respective flows, at times nearly sounding like singers as opposed to rappers. This was off-putting about Future early in his career, but he’s definitely grown on the detractors. This quasi-rap/sung approach is definitely part of the allure of Fetty Wap. His debut album Fetty Wap isn’t ‘the second coming’ by any means, but there’s clearly something there with...

Drake And Future Take Top Honors

Drake And Future Take ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ To No. 1
Lana Del Rey could practically taste her second no. 1 album – that is until Drake and Future totally ‘killed her vibe’ with surprise mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive. Expectedly, the superstar hip-hop collaboration was too much for the moody, alt-pop singer to overcome. In other words, her Honeymoon in the ‘penthouse’ wasn’t meant to be. Okay, okay, enough puns!

Drake and Future took top honors on the Billboard 200, to the tune of 375,000 units – WOW! This doesn’t outpace Drake’s earlier no. 1 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late or the juggernaut that was The Weeknd’s Beauty Behin...

How Good Is Drake And Future’s Collaboration 'What A Time To Be Alive'?

9/28/2015 11:30am EDT
Six Takeaways From Drake And Future’s ‘What A Time To Be Alive’
On Sunday, September 21, Drake and Future gave the music industry a gift – a collaborative mixtape. Two of the biggest triumphs in 2015 have come at the hands of Drake and Future. Future’s DS2 didn’t come anywhere close to Drake’s numbers with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but the rapper had the biggest debut of his career and scored his first number one album. Furthermore with their respective albums, the two MCs have had some staying power on the charts. This makes a collaborative mixtape something of a godsend, hence the gargantuan numbers.

Rather than your standard album...
