Initially, he was a spot higher but eventually fell down a notch. Congrats, nonetheless. Drake was a staple on radio all year, whether it was “Bedrock” with Young Money, “Money to Blow” with Baby and Lil Wayne, “Forever” with Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem, or any one of the songs from So Far Gone that stayed in rotation. “He’s been on the […]

Here’s why: “Teflon Don, that’s the album of the year right now, I don’t care what it sold,” MTV News’ Shaheem Reid said during the Hottest MCs roundtable. “From ‘I’m Not a Star’ down to ['All the Money in the World'], ‘Tears of Joy,’ it just really grips your soul when you hear him having the foresight to bring Cee-Lo back. Cee-Lo was singing his […]

The group’s founder succumbed to AIDS 15 years ago. “A song can take you back, but nothing takes you back to the time and place like footage,” Cube said of the most interesting aspect of working on the film. “Footage of us in the studio, just being able to see Eazy. Seeing him with Lil Eazy, carrying him around. The footage got sad at times, knowing that he’s […]
