Nicki Minaj has taken the thrown in her music video for new track, “No Frauds”. Miss Minaj travelled across the pond to film this royalty influenced video and uses the track to clap back to Remy Ma. Dripping in what looks like Nickis’ version of the crown jewels, sitting on thrones and chilling on Westminster bridge, Nicki then moves into the back streets of London to drop bars "I don't need no frauds, I don't need no drama when you call. I don't need no fakes, soon as I wake up keep an eye out for the snakes". Drake drops a few lines near the end of track showing love for his fellow Young Money member. The last scene of the video, Nicki rightfully takes a seat at her thrown next to Lil Wayne. Wayne does a little feature on the track, rapping about his rap legacy and how there’s no rapper like him. "I am not a fraud, I'm the god. They don't make 'em like me no more, man, I'm a dinosaur". Now we are all for a bit of healthy competition but have Minaj and Ma gone too far? Either way the

After his album drop and headline performance at the California Music and Arts Festival, Kendrick Lemar has dropped yet another music video this week. Directed by Nabil and Little Homies, the video sees the most entertaining interrogation scene since the Dark Knight film, when Batman comes face to face with the Joker. Don Cheadle, who we know from films such as Iron Man 2 and other Marvel movies, puts in a seriously good performance. He plays the part of a police detective, ready to question Kendrick Lemar, when he is

For many of us, Paramore were around for our scene kid/emo phase in college or school. If you haven't listened to them since you removed the stretcher form your ear, then get ready for a flashback. Paramore have hit the world with some big news. They’ve just released a new single, a new album and a UK tour. The trio have been teasing fans on social media over the past week with quirky artwork, recording studio pictures and hinting statuses, in the run up to their big announcement.

Chris Brown has released his new, Vegas style music video for his song, 'Privacy'. The song is taken off Brown’s forthcoming album, 'Heartburn on a Full Moon', which is rumoured to be released in the next couple of months. The video has everything you expect from Breezy; impressive cars, impressive dancing and impressive girls. We first see Breezy pull up in a flashy Lamborghini, playing his previously released single 'Party' from the car radio. It doesn’t take long from him to burst out into his iconic

K-Dot album drop – DAMN. Last week Kendrick dropped his new album in correlation to his headline performance at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival . We've listened to every track twice over already and it is everything and more than we expected from the Grammy award winning rapper. He touches on plenty of important issues happening around the world; police brutality, race and crime whilst homing in on a few issues in his own past that not all artists that are in top 10 charts can/will touch upon. Kendrick isn't afraid to go there and sets the record straight in his own words. With a range of different tones and feelings portrayed throughout the album, it proves now more than ever that Kendrick is on his way to being a G.O.A.T (greatest of all time). We urge you to listen to the album track by track; don’t skip, don’t fast forward because Kendrick really makes you think with the flow of each song. Some songs even lasting as long as 7 minutes like FEAR, it’s worth listening to the wh

Tinie Tempah just released this sick new track ft. Bipolar Sunshine. If you don’t know Bipolar Sunshine then you should. His chart topper ‘Middle’ in collaboration with DJ Snake last year made it into the UK top 10 and has just releasing his first track of the year “Are You Happy” which has had raved reviews. Bipolar Sunshine is definitely one to watch in 2017; the artist from the north is definite shoe in for some Best New Artists awards this year. Let’s get back to the track. This is a summer chilled track, one that

Kendrick’s classic move of deleting everything of his Instagram until something big is about to drop has come around once again. Earlier today Kendrick posted the apparent cover of his new album DAMN with another following image of his new songs. Blood DNA Yah Element Feel Loyalty Pride Humble Lust Love Xxx Fear God Duckworth Looking at the song titles in order, it hints at some sort of story that flows throughout the album. Kendrick is about to take us on some sort of life journey with his words, and we
