The Notorious B.I.G. once rapped a whole freestyle about drinking Pepsi: "Nothing can beat the P-E-P-S-I/ Yes I drink it constantly, cop it by the case, tastes great, less filling/ Tell em Biggie said drink it all, don't test me." And now, ahead of Biggie's posthumous induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame…
In The Number Ones, I'm reviewing every single #1 single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, starting with the chart's beginning, in 1958, and working my way up into the present.…

As of last week, it's been 19 years since T.I. released his debut album I'm Serious. In that time, T.I. has been through a bunch of different career phases: Hungry young gunslinger, dominant Southern overlord, crossover pop-rap star, label-boss mogul. Sometime in the last few years, T.I. slipped into wily elder-statesman mode so seamlessly that&...

Kanye West has been all antics lately, but he's still, but any measure, one of the most important musicians of his generation. So when West puts out new music, it's still the kind of thing you notice, even when that music is not good. Last month, in the midst of a whole lot of other…
Jeff Lynne, Dizzee Rascal, and Lady Leshurr are just a few of the musicians named in the Queen's Birthday Honors list in the UK. The Queen's Birthday Honors are usually revealed in June -- which is when the queen's actual birthday is -- but the list was delayed by several months this year due to…
The Griselda rap crew are in the midst of an extremely productive goon-rap renaissance, and now Benny The Butcher, one the greatest guest-verse rappers in the game right now, has announced a new album of his own. The upcoming Burden Of Proof was produced entirely by Hit-Boy and has appearances from Lil Wayne, Big Sean,…
Way back in March, in the early days of the pandemic, the Houston rap legend Scarface was among the first celebrities to announce that he'd been suffering from COVID-19. In Instagram Live interviews with his former Geto Boys colleague Willie D and with Ludacris, Scarface told a harrowing story about his time in the hospital…
Common, Andy Samberg, and Craig Robinson are getting together to make a stoner superhero movie. Variety reports that all three actors have signed on to produce and star in Super High, a New Line action-comedy in which "smoking a special strain of weed gives superpowers to the smoker."
Drake has a long history of setting off mini-gossip bombs with individual rap lines, and he dropped another one on Friday. That day, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin released the new collaborative album Savage Mode II. That album included only a few guest appearances: Drake, Young Thug, Young Nudy, narrator Morgan Freeman. Drake showed up…
Lil Wayne is the sort of voracious sports fan for whom a song called "NFL" might come about organically. He goes hard for the Green Bay Packers and has been dropping references to athletes into his raps for years. One of my favorite lines on Da Drought 3 is a reference to former Philadelphia Eagles…
"We need to and will come together in the name of Jesus"The post Kanye West sends prayers to Donald and Melania Trump after both test positive for coronavirus appeared first on NME Music News, Reviews, Videos, Galleries, Tickets and Blogs | NME.COM.
The Los Angeles musician Sam Gendel is an in-demand jazz saxophonist who has played with people like Vampire Weekend, Perfume Genius, and Moses Sumney. (He recently assisted on Sumney's cover of T-Pain's "Can't Believe It" from our very own Save Stereogum: An '00s Covers Comp.) But there's no saxophone on Gendel's new solo album DRM.
Historically speaking, this is a pretty good time for Public Enemy to be bringing noise. They are answering the call. The stentorian '80s rap greats just returned to their old home at Def Jam and released the new album What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down? The new LP features appearances from many…
Back in June, Kanye West shared a new song called "Wash Us In The Blood" featuring Travis Scott and mixed by Dr. Dre, and around that time, he started using Twitter again. Things escalated quickly, as they do for Kanye West on Twitter, and now we've all seen him pissing on a Grammy. This morning,…
