Spillage Village Drop New Album ‘Spilligion’ Ft. Chance The Rapper, 6LACK, Buddy

Supergroup Spillage Village dropped a couple of singles to build hype for the new album Spilligion in the last few weeks.
Today, the eclectic crew made of J.I.D, EarthGang, 6lack, Mereba, Jurdan Bryant, Hollywood JB and Benji have shared their full album containing 12 song in total. The project was made mostly during quarantine when most members did not have anything much to do. The album was first conceptualized when J.I.D rented a house in Atlanta to record his third album.

“We always did that communal thing,” he says of Spillage Village and the making the project to Rollingstone. “In this case, I was like, ‘We might as well do it since nobody’s doing anything.’” it was a similar concept to how the members along with other collaborators joined forces in Atlanta to create Dreamville’s highly acclaimed compilation Revenge of The Dreamers III.
“We tried a lot of experimental shit in the midst of being rapping-ass n—-s, because we just love music,” WowGr8 of Earthgang says. “Whenever we found something that was more genre-bending and it worked out and sounded fire, that was always a big moment.”
The album features guests such as Chance The Rapper, Buddy, 6LACK, Ant Clemons and more. Stream it below.

ASAP Ferg Shares New Project ‘Floor Seats II’ Ft. Nicki Minaj, Diddy, Lil Wayne

The past few weeks have been a somewhat turbulent time for ASAP Ferg.
While he’s been prepping the release of his new album Floor Seats II with his singles ‘Move Ya Hips‘ and ‘No Ceilings‘ that have been doing well, he’s also been going through some public turmoil with a few members of ASAP Mob who claimed that he was no longer part of the crew.

Tory Lanez Addresses Megan Thee Stallion Shooting on New Album ‘DAYSTAR’

Tory Lanez is going on the record.
The Toronto rapper breaks his silence for the first time since he allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion in July. But instead of releasing a statement or going live on Instagram, he is using his music to speak. After teasing an announcement earlier in the day, he released a 17-track album called DAYSTAR, on which he tells his side of the story.
“There is a time to stay silent . And a time to speak ….. I said all I could say on this,” Tory said while announcing the project.

The album opens with “Money Over Fallouts” featuring sound bites from various media reports before Tory addresses his critics including Kehlani and Kaash Paige, who spoke out against him.
Megan has publicly accused Tory of shooting her, but he seems to claim that it was all a set up. “Megan’s people tryna frame me for a shooting / But them boys ain’t clean enough,” he raps.
He goes on to accuse Megan of filing a false police report and insinuates that they were in a relationship. “Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on the affidavit / Knowin’ I ain’t do it but I’m comin’ at my truest / Tryna keep this shit 200 with you,” he raps. “Don’t forget you was my bitch / I held it down and kept it real / I would never paint no fake picture of you just for some mills.”
He adds, “Look at how you doin’ me / People tryna ruin me / And what’s even worse is I’m still thinking about you and me.”
Megan was shot multiple times in her feet, but Tory questions her claims. “How the f**k you get shot in your foot? Don’t hit no bones and tendons / How the f**k your team is tryna paint me as some whole menace?” he raps. “I just lost like $10 million dollars because this cold business / But I got like 10 million followers that gon’ roll with me … I don’t give a damn if shawty know Jigga.”
He also seems to deny that he harmed her. “I would never put you in no danger and if I did, you would’ve said it when you seen the cops.”
And that’s just the first track. Stream DAYSTAR below.

Stream Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter V (Deluxe)’

In honor of the two-year anniversary of Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne celebrates with the deluxe edition.

Three of the 10 tracks were previously released as stand-alone bonus cuts in November 2018 and include “What About Me” with Post Malone, “In This House” featuring Gucci Mane, and the Tay Keith-produced “Hasta La Vista.”
The original album also featured collaborations with Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, XXXTentacion, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, and more.

Tha Carter V was released on Sept. 28, 2018, following Wayne’s highly-publicized legal battle with Cash Money, and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 480,000 equivalent album units.
The Young Money boss is now working on the next installment, Tha Carter VI, as well as No Ceilings 3.

M.I.A., who Travis calls the “illest of all time,” was later added to the song. “She’s just one of my favorite artists as humans,” he told Apple Music. “When I finished the song, I couldn’t think of nobody else that could probably just maybe like, body this shit… And just that presence, man. We ain’t felt this presence in a long time.”
Additionally, Travis has released an epic music video, which was shot at Michael Jordan’s former Chicago-area mansion. The video, which he co-directed with White Trash Tyler, is playing in IMAX theaters ahead of select Tenet showings starting tonight.
Travis has been teasing a new album, the follow-up to 2018’s Astroworld, which is rumored to be called Utopia. “I feel like I’ve learned so much. I think with this next project I’m just embodying all of the knowledge I’ve taken in and trying to make the best form of it,” he told GQ.
Meanwhile, his Travis Scott Meal at McDonald’s has been a huge hit. The fast-food chain has reported shortages of key ingredients due to overwhelming demand.

Stream Machine Gun Kelly’s Rock Album ‘Tickets to My Downfall’

Machine Gun Kelly has always been an artist who has experimented with sounds, tapping into the Rock genre quite often in his music. So when he announced a few months ago that he is working on a full album of that sort, it did not come as a surprise to us.
In the past 8 to 10 weeks, MGK has dropped a few singles to give us a sneak peek of what he is cooking up, including ‘My Ex’s Best Friend‘ feat. blackbear and ‘Concert for Aliens‘. Tonight, the Bad Boy signed artist who is currently dating Megan Fox, has released the entire album.

Stream Bryson Tiller’s ‘Trapsoul (Deluxe)’

Before he releases his third album this fall, Bryson Tiller revisits the past.
To commemorate the fifth anniversary of Trapsoul, the Louisville crooner releases a deluxe edition of his debut album. In addition to the 14 original tracks, the deluxe adds four bonus cuts including “Just Another Interlude” and the fan favorite “Self Righteous.” He also teams up with The Weeknd on the remix to “Rambo,” which was released to SoundCloud in 2016.
Released on Oct. 2, 2015, Trapsoul was certified triple platinum and spawned hits including “Don’t,” “Exchange,” and “Sorry Not Sorry.”
“I always look back on it and it’s just crazy,” Tiller told Billboard while reflecting on the milestone. “Sometimes I just look up at the calendar and I’m like, ‘Damn. I can’t believe it’s been five years.’ Like, I’ve been in the music industry for five years? That blows my mind sometimes.”
Tiller is now gearing up for his long-awaited third album, the follow-up to 2017’s True To Self. Earlier this month, he released a pair of tracks including “Always Forever” and “Inhale.”
“This album is a different energy. There’s a clear difference with this album and True to Self,” he said of his 2017 sophomore album.
But the father of two is back in his zone. “I can’t afford to bring my C-game now — not for my two daughters. It’s just my A-game here on out.”

Bryson Tiller Releases Deluxe Edition Of ‘TRAPSOUL’ — Stream

Bryson Tiller has been quietly working on music for a while now, popping up with new songs here and there but keeping his head down for the most part. In a recent interview he did with Billboard, he admitted that his last album True To Self, ironically, was his c-game. “A lot of people don’t know this, but before the album even came out, I didn’t want it out. I was in the studio and I was upset. People were like, ‘Hey, I heard your album is done. I can’t wait to hear it,’ and I was like, ‘Listen. Don’t even bother.’ he told Carl Lamarre. A lot of fans were disappointed with that album, me included, so that is almost nice to hear.
He promises that new music is on the way but before that, he revisits T R A P S O U L. On October 5th, the album turns five and to commemorate it, he releases a special deluxe edition of it like many artists are doing with their releases these days.

before we get into my new album, I wanna celebrate with this special edition of my debut album, Trapsoul. Featuring a few songs that didn’t quite make the cut. Y’all asked for these on All Platforms and they’ll finally be yours this Friday. thank you! pic.twitter.com/8MJ5rC5jYB
— tiller (@brysontiller) September 23, 2020

On the new version are fan favorite songs of his that haven’t been on digital streaming platforms until now — ‘Just Another Interlude’, ‘Self Righteous’ and ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ with The Weeknd. Hear them in new, remastered quality below. Hopefully we will get a full new album before this terrible year is over.

Cardi B on Offset Divorce: ‘I Didn’t Want to Wait Until He Cheated on Me Again’

Cardi B continues to open up about her divorce from Offset.
After addressing their split on Instagram Live last week, the “WAP” rapper went live on her OnlyFans on Wednesday night to explain why she decided to divorce her husband of three years.
Cardi said it was her decision to end the marriage. “You cannot hurt my feelings trying to throw the divorce in my face because, at the end of the day, I decided I wanted to leave,” she said, according to Vanity Fair.
Offset has been accused of being unfaithful in the past, but this time, she decided to call it off before he cheated again. “I didn’t wait until he cheated on me again. I didn’t wait [for] another controversy with him being involved. I decided to leave. If I wanted to stay, I could have stayed. I decided to leave.”
“I just got tired of fu**ing arguing,” she added. “I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it’s not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I rather just be… you know what I’m saying? Like, I’m tired of people.”
Since filing for divorce, Cardi says men have been sliding into her DMs, but she’s not looking for love. “My DMs are flooded. I don’t actually want to date nobody. I’m so focused on my business that it’s crazy.”
Last week, Cardi filed for divorce from Offset, saying the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and “there are no prospects for a reconciliation.” However, she told fans that she has “not shed one tear” over their separation.
“Every single time that this guy has done something so crazy, so fu**ed up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, I’m always stressed out, I’m sad because I don’t like that type of shit,” she said. “This time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that shit that ever happened before. It’s not ’cause of cheating.”
Cardi also denied rumors that Offset is expecting a baby with another woman. “I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole fu**ing complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bullshit.”
She and Offset will continue to co-parent their daughter Kulture and Cardi will not seek spousal or child support.

Machine Gun Kelly Calls Eminem an ‘Angry Legend’

Machine Gun Kelly is revisiting his rivalry with Eminem.
With promoting his new album Tickets to My Downfall on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show,” the Cleveland rapper was asked about his long-running feud with Slim Shady. He acknowledged that Em was a “hero” to him before he found himself on the receiving end of his disses.
“I’m like asleep in my tour bus and this fu**in’ guy drops an album [Kamikaze] with like three songs consecutively talking about me,” MGK said. “What the f**k you think I’ma do, just roll over and go back to sleep? Get the f**k outta here. You’re not gonna ho me. I said what I said and respect the fight, that’s it.”
MGK responded to Em’s Kamikaze disses on his 2018 track “Rap Devil,” inspired by Em’s own 2013 song “Rap God.”

But MGK still doesn’t understand why Em would choose to direct his anger at him. “This fool has goddamn wealth beyond,” he said. “I’m just a different dude. I’m all about putting my arm around people… I can’t relate. That’s the last thing I ever want to be is an angry legend.”
Stern proposed a meeting between the rivals so they can squash their beef. “We’ll have a whole love fest and it will be a beautiful thing,” he said, prompting MGK to laugh.
Elsewhere, MGK opened up about finding true love with girlfriend Megan Fox. “I didn’t know what that was until me and her made eye contact. That’s when I was like, ‘Whoa,'” he said. Stern asked if it was love at first sight, to which MGK responded, “Yeah, for sure.”
His new album Tickets to My Downfall arrives Friday. “I just want to go against what everyone else thinks,” he said. “I make a pop-punk record … and everyone’s like, ‘You switched genres!’ To me, I just added on to the multiple things I’ve already done anyway, but, sure, what a narrow-minded way to look at things.”
