Here’s a rundown of some of the biggest hip hop news of the week, including the new video from Kendrick and Kodak Black’s new album
KENDRICK LAMAR DROPS “HUMBLE” VIDEO
Kendrick is truly preparing us for April 7 with a surprise video for the new song “Humble”. It’s mad trippy, throwback and not quite his usual visual style, but it should keep us all salivating for the next week or so. Peep it below.
NICKI MINAJ SIGNS WITH WILHELMINA MODELING AGENCY
You may as well just start calling her “Nicki the Conqueror”. Ms. Minaj is now part of the Wilhelmina Celebrity Division, which has represented celebrity talent including Leona Lewis, Chris Brown and Nick Jonas, among others. The story was reported in VOGUE. Looks like that battle with Remy Ma didn’t slow Nicki down one bit.
SNOOP DOGG WILL INDUCT 2PAC INTO THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME
It’s only right that it be Snoop that induct ‘Pac into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as they were once close confidants and label mates. If only ‘Pac himself were still alive to receive this honor. B’ah well…we still get to relive his life with All Eyez On Me coming to theaters soon.
BIG BOI AND KILLER MIKE DEBUT A MUSICAL COLLABORATION IN ATLANTA
Big Boi revealed that his next solo album is complete and will have some major names appearing on it. In the meantime, he and fellow Dungeon Family member Killer Mike revealed a collaboration at the V103 Pop Up Concert in Atlanta. Here’s footage of the performance.
KODAK BLACK’S NEW ALBUM IS STREAMING NOW
One of the forerunners of mumble rap, Kodak has made his major label debut with the album Painting Pictures. The 18-track offering is available for purchase on iTunes and features appearances from Bun B, Jeezy, Future and others. Stream the album here.
GUCCI MANE AND RICK ROSS ARE MAKING A MOVIE
Looks like Rozay isn’t playing games. We don’t have a title for the movie yet, but Ross announced it at the V103 Pop Up Concert. And this new venture is in addition to him having dropped the new album Rather You Than Me last week, with another album on the way. We’ll be sure to stay tuned once more developments occur.
