Last week I wrote a post about Nipsey Hussle dropping a mixtape on Tuesday, and that he had 100 physical copies that he was selling them for 100.00. Well it turns out Nipsey found a fan to buy not only one of those copies, but all of them. Yes the mega fan was Jay-Z. Jay-Z purchased all 100 copies, and if you’re doing the Math correctly you’ll see Nipsey made a quick 100k from those purchases. This is why Jay-Z is respected like he is in the rap game, because he does stuff like this. Congrats to Nipsey Hussle on making history.
Drake released a new song titled “Wu-Tang Forever”. His new album “Nothing Was The Same” drops September 24th so you can expect more music, and even the album to leak as we draw closer to the release date.
Eminem fans finally get new music from Em. He released his new single titled “Berzerk” where Eminem sounds like old Eminem calling out celebs. He disses Khloe Kardashian, and Lamar Odom to name a few. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 drops November 5th and we can certainly expect Eminem to call out some celebs.
Drake released his new single titled “All Me” which has Aziz Ansari on the intro, and it features 2 Chainz, and Big Sean. Drakes new album “Nothing Was The Same” drops in September.

MCHG becomes the first album to become platinum on the day of it’s release. This is Jay-Z 12th platinum album. The physical copy of the album was released Tuesday, and billboard is projecting the album to sell 350k-400k which will put the album on billboard top 200 list. This will be Jay-Z 13th number 1 album. Jay-Z wasn’t lying when he told everyone on his twitter account about the new rules when it comes to releasing albums. Jay-Z has once again set new standards in the music industry.
