YMCMB’s own Tyga is the next artist up for BET’s “The Backroom Freestyle” series.
After giving us her first single “The Woman You Love” with Busta Rhymes, Ashanti returns with her next track “No One Greater” featuring two of the hottest up and coming street rappers in French Montana and Meek Mill. Listen as they all go in about their past relationships and tell their exes that they will never find “No One Greater” than what they had with them.

You know sooner or later Chris Brown had to bring it back to the rapping. For another freebie for the fans to get them prepared for Fortune this Tuesday, he channels that California life even though he’s from Virgina. Beat is hard, though.

“We were just riding down the LIE and a Mack Truck — he said he lost control of the vehicle later to police officers because his load shifted,” 50 explained. “He tried to brake, his load shifted, and he lost control and he ran into the back of the truck. It did more damage to the Mack Truck than it did to my truck, ’cause I got a level six; it’s a bulletproof vehicle. It’s the same standard as what they’re moving Obama around in.“
It could probably be argued that “Quiet Storm” is one of Mobb Deep’s Top 3 songs in their catalog, and one could most certainly say the Lil Kim remix is one of the best features of her career. Today we take it back to the Murda Muzik first single, which was also featured on the In Too Deep soundtrack and give you that infamous Mobb-phonics.

We had our music on shuffle the other day, and 2pac’s “Heartz Of Men” played, then “Hyptnotized” kicked in right after that was finished. Then 2 songs later, “Skandalouz” came on. That little segueway really took us back to both 2pac and Biggie albums and it had us thinking: Which body of work is superior? All Eyez On Me or Life After Death?
They’re both double albums. Both are probably some of the last double-discs to be commercially accepted in hip-hop. Both have a complete balance of radio & street tracks. We’ve probably played both equally as much throughout the years as they shaped our musical lives since the moment we first heard them. They both left a lasting impact on each artist’s legacy & were deemed classic (either when it dropped or down the line).
But when it’s all said and done, which album is better?
We decided to leave it to our readers to decide. We want to know how you feel about the two. We have a feeling it’ll be a close one, so be sure to let us know your pick and opinion in the comments so we can tally up the numbers.
Speak now or forever hold your peace!

This is ALLL types of hilarity. Somehow, Kathy Griffin found the video of Danny Brown and A$AP Rocky’s back and forth where they spoke on fucking old bitches and showed it to her guests and audience on her show. A few things, though:
1. Anderson Cooper, they were actually in Spain bruh
2. The white lady on the right had a worse flow than Lil B
3. How soon will Kathy Griffin book A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown for her show?
4. STILL DYING @ A$AP Rocky saying “Who that? The lady from Family Guy?”
We’re glad she took it well and didn’t spazz out on some estrogen filled Bill O’Reilly shit. So much she said she’d pull a train with them! (Jokes?) Spotted at Nah.
