Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan Pay Homage To Oprah In 'Color Purple'

Just how many lean or syrup-sipping references can a rapper boast in a song these days!? If the sky's the limit, then Atlanta rappers Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug clearly have NONE, especially in their latest duet 'Color Purple', inspired by none other than Oprah Winfrey and her unforgettable appearance in The Color Purple.

Lyric teaser: "Oprah Winfrey bring me that purple":

Honey Cocaine Preps To Release 22s LP & 'Honeyd*ck' Video

After finishing up an incredible 2014 with a few mixtape releases and viral videos, the world had begun to notice rapper Honey Cocaine's potential as a commercial Hip-Hop artist.

Speaking of sound, the Toronto native recently revealed the release of an upcoming project titled 22s:

YMCMB rapper Chanel West Coast isn't known to make enemies or have any major problems spilled over into her music or in the media (except for that one drunken night where she started a fight at a nightclub in LA), yet with the release of a new track titled 'Make Em Mad', the not-so-prim Ridiculousness co-host is sure to be heckled by a lot of haters under her Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram timelines:

Drake's 'Hotline Bling' Is An Emotional Outlet For Hopeless Romantics

--Photo: 1

Drake turns the wheel when it comes to pushing culture forward, especially in the urban community where if push comes to shove, a body might be found over knocking the 28 year-old Toronto-native's hustle.

Since OVO's "already got Spring 2015 poppin'", as mentioned back on '0 to 100',  it was only fair for Drake to drop the pretty emotional tune that is 'Hotline Bling':

Whether you dance, sing, study, act, paint, go to college, or are working towards a brighter future, getting money (bandz in urban culture) is at the top of everyone's bucket list, especially for a particular female rapper from Chicago, Katie Got Bandz.

Who's been living up to that name in a recent flow of picture tweets, dripping in some seriously lavish gear:

The uncanny metamorphosis of Drake in the 'Energy' video

Dear fans of Drake,

Nothing seems to stall the OVO head honcho's momentumDrizzy can't even stop himself from venturing outside his body to convert into other forms of human life. As the song goes, he's "got a lot of enemies," (symbolically) morphing into another person should keep the haters off his back for now.

Although known to be a versatile guy, dropping everything from emotional R&B melodies to hard-hitting Hip-Hop anthems, it's something unexpected to see the physical transformations Drake goes through in the visuals to his recent video for 'Energy' from the If You're Reading This It's Too Late mixtape/album.

Nicki Minaj anoints a fan on stage who is pepper sprayed in the crowd

Mace is only effective when it's in the perpetrator's face and not our own. Unfortunately, a group of people and a poor girl in particular were pepper sprayed at point-blank range in the crowd of Nicki Minaj's concert in Concord, California on Friday, August 14th (The Pink Print Tour). As shown below, TMZ knows how to get the footage:

So, duh! (Soda) a.k.a. 'Dr. Pepper' by Diplo, RiFF RaFF, CL, & OG Maco

It always seems like rapper RiFF RaFF and producer Diplo are no strangers when it comes to orchestrating unorthodox music collaborations with equally unique song titles, which is the case for this latest synthesis of hit makers on the song 'Dr. Pepper' featuring OG Maco and CL of 2NE1.

Head's up RuPaul's Drag Race fans: All-Stars Season 2 is official and is coming soon!

In the words of the high Queen herself: "Oh no she better do!" RuPaul, along with the entire Logo TV camp, took to Twitter late last month to tease the return of RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars Season 2, which has now been confirmed officially. That can only mean one thing...

"B*****s better beware!"

Everything about Queen Honey Cocaine feels relevant in 2015

honey cocaine 2015, honey cocaine

Representing Toronto, Canada, a place well-known and well-referenced as the "6" in urban music culture, Honey Cocaine is a young rap artist with a portfolio's work of potential to expand into the mainstream.

Not many can call themselves an expert of Asian rap, which is not to be polarized from the category of general rap: Honey Cocaine's sound speaks in a rather daring direction for the ethnic background she originates from, penning lyrics where everyday situations about getting money could involve guns, drive-bys (in real life), or ransom.

Lil Debbie rolls a fat smoker's anthem in 'Lofty' for Colt 45 mixtape

Without an ounce of doubt, urban music-heads need to point their ears in the direction of the Bay's Lil Debbie's melodic juiciness on one of her latest tunes (and video) 'Lofty', a WorldStarHipHop exclusive featured on Colt 45's compilation mixtape:

Perhaps the hook's repetition makes for a transient experience in the music, but Lil Debbie's dope, free-spirited essence mixed seamlessly throughout the flows brings listeners into an ethereal and mystically visual realm of personal and meditative reflection.

...And hearing a tune about getting "high as f***" is a warm, fuzzy feeling that most would love to smoke and jam to, right?

PS. We don't recommend Colt 45 as a chaser. Drink responsibly!
