Kid Cudi delivered one of the best performances on Saturday (June 20) at the 2015 Firefly Music Festival -- only, he couldn't live up to his full potential, as the set was cut off 20 minutes in due to inclement weather.
The thick, wet mud couldn't stop a huge crowd from attending Run the Jewels' evening set at Firefly 2015 on Friday night (June 19), where El-P and Killer Mike ripped through cuts -- and dropped one eyebrow-raising quote -- from their pair of albums as patrons turned up in the muck.
In 'Dope,' actor Shameik Moore and his nerdy friends adorn themselves in Cross Colours hats and Run-D.M.C. tees, dig through crates for classic rap vinyl and write college admission essays on the importance of Ice Cube's "It Was a Good Day." But while shooting the buzzed-about movie (in theaters June 19), the 20-year-old actor was bedeviled by an archaic piece of audio equipment: a vintage Sony WM-F10 Walkman.
Guns, fatigues and a violent crime: A rapper used a West Virginia courtroom to film his vigilante-themed music video, and that has disturbed one local official. Hancock County Commissioner Jeff Davis is not happy that the courtroom was used by a Weirton rapper known as Mini Thin.
Big Sean just released the video for his single "One Man Can Change the World" -- though the song features John Legend and Kanye West, the video foregoes star appearances in lieu of moving, black-and-white imagery showing the impact of violence on the black community.
Since Jan. 31, the day that Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face-down in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga., townhouse, the world has focused on what led up to the tragedy, which eerily paralleled her mother Whitney Houston's drowning in 2012. Less attention has been focused on what becomes of the singer's estate.
The singer backed out of a party there in February after owner the Sultan of Brunei passed Sharia law in his country, but Legend seems to have had a change of heart, performing at a wedding reception at the venue in May.
After nearly 20 years on Billboard's various charts, singer Tamia scores her highest charting album ever on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (dated June 27), as Love Life arrives in the No. 2 slot. It also launches at No. 1 on R&B Albums.
Three years after the release of his mixtape, Cliff of Death, Deniro Farrar releases its follow-up, Cliff of Death 2 (COD2). Check out an exclusive stream of the mixtape below, premiering here on The Juice.
In the hours following the sickening Charleston shooting on Wednesday night (June 17), Killer Mike took to Twitter to air his feelings on the hate crime that took the lives of nine people at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C.
Thundercat, the mind-bending bassist/singer-songwriter who's been quietly contributing to some of the year's buzziest releases (Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly and Kamasi Washington's The Epic among them), is back with new music of his own for the first time in two years.
In the wake of a no-contest plea to a 2012 case alleging he had secretly slipped Ecstasy into a woman's drink, CeeLo Green unleashed a series of wildly inappropriate comments about rape that set off a firestorm of criticism and essentially put his career at a standstill. He sort-of apologized, then "truly and deeply" apologized, and then basically laid low. But throughout the hiatus, Green has been at work on a new album called Heart Blanche that is nearly complete and slated for release in the fourth quarter of this year.
