On the verge of stardom, Los Angeles’ own Problem has been sought out my most labels as the biggest new unsigned artist in rap. Highlighted by his first cross-over single “Like Whaaat,” that even made its way into the hands of Diddy, Chachi’s been touring the country to cement his name as the hottest new cat out. Backed by the entire Diamond Lane Music Group and co-signs from your favorite rappers and producers spanning from all over, it’s time for Problem to officially take over this game starting today.
The mixtape’s features come the likes of Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Snoop Dogg, The Game, Bad Lucc, Wale, Chris Brown, IAMSU!, Tyga, Kent, and G Malone. With production seen from Problem himself, he gets assistance from Terrace Martin, Jahlil Beats, Warren G, League Of Starz, The Invasion, Beatboy Soundz, and Yung J.R.

In just a matter of weeks the 2013 “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” will kickoff featuring Lil’ Wayne, 2Chainz, and T.I.P.

The three are seen in the main issue above, available on newsstands everywhere on June 18th; but also have their own solo magazines.

Since Robin Thicke released his latest single “Blurred Lines” and the rather impressive visual that followed, the record has seen plenty of rotation on playlists across the world. For the first time in Thicke’s career, the track has now deservedly reached the number one spot on the Billboard chart, with plenty of credit going towards T.I. and Pharrell in the process. The song is currently in its second week at the top of the charts over in the UK, spelling even more success for the acclaimed vocalist and his entire team.
In recent times, one of the most talked about artists from the West Coast area has been Problem, and deservedly so. Today we see the release of his latest single titled “Roll Up,” as he brings in T.I. and Snoop Dogg for two worthy collaborations. Don’t forget to download Problem and DJ Drama’s The Seperation mixtape tomorrow, with features from the likes of Wale, Wiz Khalifa, The Game, Tyga, Bad Lucc, Chris Brown and many more.

We can’t even lie. We haven’t been blasting Waka Flocka music as much as we used to, but that doesn’t mean he can’t make bangers. First heard on his last mixtape, DuFlocka Rant Halftime Show, it looks like Waka is releasing this as an official single now.
T.I. has definitely given “50K” new life.
Compared to other weeks, it seemed like a pretty slow week for videos this past week, but some heavy hitters still stepped up to the plate. Summer has pretty much started at this point, so we’ve been seeing a lot more visuals that channel the spirit. Interestingly enough, for today’s Top 10, Lil Wayne made three cameos, all on different types of records.
Check out our countdown of the week below.
OS REWIND: Top 10 Videos Of The Week (May 19, 2013)
We hope people didn’t sleep on T.I.’s Trouble Man album because he had some bangers on there. One of the more feel-good records from the project is the Cee-Lo Green-featured “Hello,” which now gets a visual. The two hit the middle of the desert for this one, and finds TIP on a journey that he could never imagine.

There’s no denying that Travi$ Scott and his project have been one of the biggest subject matters of the past year. Since becoming a clear standout on G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer compilation, the Houston rapper/producer has continued to prove his worth as the releases keep on coming, earning himself a rightful place in the Grand Hustle team.
After seeing an unfortunate number of push-backs in recent months, Travi$ decides to finally release his anticipated Owl Pharaoh in its entirety. The 13-track project contains contributions from the likes of T.I., Bon Iver, Toro Y Moi, A$AP Ferg, Wale, Theophilus London, Meek Mill and more.

We had heard a preview of this collaboration last week and now the full version is upon us this morning. This is a very dope cut from TIP and Weezy F, as they flow over some banging production that is perfect for the summer. King T.I. really has been rolling with his releases for a while now, as it is rumored that he has some new heat with Drake on the way.

OS REWIND: Lil Wayne Announces “Amerika’s Most Wanted” Tour With T.I.
We know a lot of you have been waiting for this, and now the collaborative effort from the entire Grand Hustle family is here. Led by the CEO, T.I., the rest of the troops (B.o.B, Young Dro, Trae Tha Truth, Iggy Azalea, Doe B, Travi$ Scott, Big Kuntry, Chip and DJ MLK) are all along for the ride. Yeah, the entire Hustle Gang represents all up and down this project. Over 20 tracks of Southern slap. Especially if you have DJ Spinz, David Banner and Travi$ Scott on the beats. This is another Gangsta Grillz presentation.

Ace Hood – Bugatti (Remix) (feat. Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Meek Mill, French Montana, 2 Chainz, DJ Khaled & Birdman)
Now this is a remix. Ace Hood recruits just about everyone in the rap game for his highly-anticipated remix to his smash single “Bugatti.” We can’t even lie and say that this version isn’t hot though, as T.I. & Meek absolutely went ham on this. Ace Hood’s new album Trials & Tribulations will be in stores on July 16.
Who do you think had the hottest verse? Let us know in the comment section.
In a recent trend of soundtracks coming back to the forefront of music, The Fast & The Furious 6 is gearing up to drop a soundtrack of their own (via Def Jam), to coincide with the blockbuster film hitting theaters May 24, 2013.
The original motion picture soundtrack includes already released singles from T.I. and Ludacris, as well as new tracks from deadmau5, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, and even a new one from MC Jin. Yes, 106 & Park battle rap champion Jin.

The No Limit Records catalog has been sampled heavy the past few months, with this new Hustle Gang “Here I Go” being the next to take on that Beats By The Pound ’90s flavor. We’re still trying to figure out what song they actually took the melody to on this one, but we’re inching towards something from Master P’s Ghetto D. The crazy part is, they even got Mystikal on it. Stay tuned for Hustle Gang’s G.R.O.D. mixtape to drop May 7, 2013.

We’ve come to expect new content from Juicy J on a weekly basis in recent times, and he continues the rather impressive run of form by releasing a huge remix to one of his most popular tracks. The release of “Ain’t No Coming Down” may only have surfaced for the first time last week, but the Memphis rapper makes a bold return with the remix for “Show Out,” replacing Young Jeezy and Big Sean with verses from Pimp C and T.I. on the famous Mike WiLL Made It-produced track. The single should keep us fully anticipated for his forthcoming solo album Stay Trippy, which is set to impact before 2013 comes to an end.
