Lil Dicky To Develop A TV Show

By Shaun M,

Hot off the hilarious raunchy short film "Pillow Talking," Lil Dicky revealed his plans to star in his own TV project. He said it's only at the beginning phase though.

"I'm working on a TV show," he told XXL, adding, "but it takes so long to develop that you won’t really see any of that for like a year and a half, but it's in the works."

The 29-year-old rapper said his main focus is on music and TV. Although, he thinks his future TV gig has the potential to land him even more opportunities -- maybe movie roles.

"I'm pretty focused on this one thing," Dicky said. "I think my TV show is gonna be my big thing so I'm pretty focused on that and I think doing that will lead to all of the other opportunities I want, to jump to movies and other stuff, but it starts with that."

Dicky also revealed that, besides features on other artists' projects, you can expect him to drop his own album sometime in 2017. (Read More)

Kendrick Lamar Dethrones Drake, Scoring 2017's Biggest Sales Week Yet

By Mitch Findlay

Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. continues to set records, including 2017's biggest sales week thus far. According to Billboard, K.Dot is projected to sell between 530,000 to 550,000 equivalent album units, which would also set a personal best for the Compton rapper. The 2017 bar was previously set by Drake, whose More Life playlist totaled in 505,000 sales during the week of March 23rd.

In an era where streams are the new sales, these are some seriously big numbers for both Drizzy and Kendrick. The rappers have a devout following of do-or-die defenders, and this sales battle will inevitably lead to some heated discussion. Still, the fact remains that the 2017 charts have been dominated by hip-hop artists, which is a definite W for the community as a whole. (Read More)

First Week Sales For Playboi Carti's Self-Titled Debut Project

By Kevin Goddard

According to HitsDoubleDaily, Playboi Carti, which features A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, & Leven Kali, sold 28,051 units in the opening week, with 7K of those being pure sales. While some might think those numbers are terrible, it really isn’t all too bad considering the project surfaced with barely any promotion. And after all, it is his "debut" effort.

But now with the single “WokeUpLikeThis” & “New Choppa” both picking up momentum, the project should only continue to get more attention moving forward and deservingly so. Stream the project here if you've been sleeping on it and be sure to show your support on iTunes. (Read More)
