Here’s a rundown of some of the biggest hip hop news of the week, including Logic taking Kendrick’s number 1 spot and Remy Ma reacting to Nicki’s video for “No Frauds”.
LOGIC OVERTAKES KENDRICK LAMAR FOR HIS FIRST NO. 1 ALBUM DEBUT
Logic’s album Everybody sold nearly 250,000 equivalent albums for the week ending May 11. It’s his first No. 1 album and dethroned Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN for the top spot. Too bad reports are that Logic’s next album will be his last. Guess we better enjoy this one as much as possible.

BIG BOI DROPS VIDEO FOR “MIC JACK” SINGLE FEAT. ADAM LEVINE
One half of the mighty Outkast is coming back with his latest album entitled Boomiverse. But until it drops, he’s crafted a spacey, dance-pop flavored track with a mainstay on The Voice. If Big Boi knows how to do one thing, it’s cross musical boundaries.
VINCE STAPLES REVEALS BIG FISH THEORY ALBUM RELEASE DATE
The Long Beach native is coming back with his sophomore effort, Big Fish Theory, dropping on June 23. Announcing the album release date on Zane Lowe, he also dropped the video for his new song “Big Fish”. And since last years’ Prima Donna EP was so good, we’re expecting big things from this latest set from Vince.
