9 hours ago
This one is likely to stir up some tension. Childish Gambino is taking a "Control" approach at some of the rap game's most prominent names as he has fired shots at Kendrick Lamar, Drake and ScHoolboy Q during his concert in Sydney, Australia earlier tonight.

Childish:
"This nigga think he Drake. Nah I ain’t Drake. I sing better, I do better, my shit's wetter." (00:22)

"I'm the best rapper, definitely Top 5. If these other rappers think they're, they're fucking not alive. I cut their head off, that's every rapper living. That's Kendrick, that's Drake, that's ScHoolboy, that's everyone. I don't give a fuck. I'll fucking kill you niggas. I’ll fucking kill you niggas." (1:59)(Read More)

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” retains its #1 status this week on its twentieth week on the charts. Drake’s “0 To 100/The Catch Up” debuts on the list at #6 with just under 40,000 units sold. The newest single from the Toronto rapper carves out his seventh appearance on this week's list of Top 100 songs on the R&B/Hip-Hop.

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” At #1 Again

After 20 weeks on the chart, Azalea’s Charli XCX featuring hit “Fancy” again claims the #1 spot for the twelfth consecutive week. With 154,541 copies sold this week alone, the latest numbers crack the 3 million sold mark for the Australian rapper’s summer single.

Rolling Stone Lists "20 Biggest Songs of the Summer: The 1990s"
4 days ago
Songs from The Notorious B.I.G., Sir Mix-A-Lot and Brandy make Rolling Stone's list.

Rolling Stone has compiled a list of “20 Biggest Songs of the Summer: The 1990s,” a grouping that features a number of Rap and R&B songs.

Rolling Stone says it compiled its list by looking at songs that dominated Billboard’s Hot 100 chart between June and September, "dictated by peak chart positions and total length of run on the Hot 100. We've also ignored all the unseasonal ballads – so our apologies to Elton John, Bryan Adams and more."

The Notorious B.I.G.’s “One More Chance/Stay With Me (Remix)” lands at #15 on the list. Rolling Stone details how the album version of the song differed dramatically from its remix.

"In 1995, long after the album's 1994 release,” Rolling Stone says, "the track was dramatically revamped for the third single, with Biggie spitting new verses over a slower beat, featuring a DeBarge sample and a vocal cameo by his new bride, Faith Evans."

Tag Team’s 1993 single “Whoomp! (There It Is)” is the #6 song on the list and Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” comes in at #4.

Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine” is the #1 song on the list.

"Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney launched Thriller's singles campaign with 'The Girl Is Mine,' playfully quarreling over a love triangle,” Rolling Stone says. "Fifteen years later, two rising R&B stars created a more dramatic answer song, bigger than its inspiration, topping the charts for a whopping 15 weeks in the summer of 1998.
