With the success of his hit single “IDFWU”, Big Sean is finally ready to release the follow up to his 2013 sophomore album Hall Of Fame. This one will be titled Dark Sky Paradise and Sean has enlisted the help from the likes of Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake, Jhené Aiko, Travi$ Scott, PARTYNEXTDOOR, E-40, DJ Mustard, DJ Dahi, DJ Khaled and more to get the project complete. No release date is known yet but let’s keep our fingers crossed that it drops sooner than later.
Bobby Shmurda who has had a incredible year so far with his breakout single “Hot Nigga” and signing the major record deal seems to be ending it on a very bad note as he has been arrested. The NYPD reportedly arrested Bobby Shmurda and several of his associates last night in New York City on a number of as yet unspecified charges. A spokesperson for the city’s special narcotics prosecutor confirmed the arrests to Wondering Sound, stating that the sweep was the result of a “long term investigation” that includes a sealed indictment. The charges will become public tomorrow when Shmurda and the other defendants are arraigned. Stay tuned for more details as they arise. Free Shmurda!
According to FOX 29’s Steve Keeley and Dave Schratwieser, Meek Mill has finally been released from prison. After being sentenced to three to six months for probation violation back in July, Meek wasn’t expected to return home until January but luckily through good behavior and a nice judge the Philly rapper gets an early Christmas gift by coming home early. His album Dreams Worth More Than Money was expected to release in September until he got locked up, so now the countdown begins until we get to hear the highly anticipated project. Stay tuned for more details on his release from prison along with the forthcoming album as they arise.

As we all know Gucci Mane is currently locked up and we also know that hasn’t stopped him from dropping countless projects for fans from behind bars. Today we get to see a handwritten letter from Gucci that updates his fans on his sobriety, his mental state and his plans for the future. Get a look at the letter below. #FreeGuwop
It’s been about one year since Dom Kennedy released Get Home Safely and while he’s been busy touring and providing features for other artists, the Leimert Park native reveals he is currently working on a new album. Dom didn’t reveal a time of when to expect the project but said you will definitely know when it’s time for the new music to be dropped. We are definitely excited to hear what Dom has been working on.
Today it has been announced that Chicago rapper Chief Keef has been released from his label Interscope Records and is now a free agent. With all the legal troubles Keef has had throughout his young career the label decided to distance themselves and was not interested in dropping a new album with Sosa. With plenty of projects in the works such as Bang 3, Back From The Dead 2 and Thot Breaker, it seems Keef may just be fine however he just needs to stay out of trouble.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is planning on recording and releasing one final album and then selling it to the highest bidder similar to Wu-Tang Clan. Bone’s manager Steve Lobel detailed the group’s plans in a interview with HipHopDX. This is definitely interesting as the group thinks they can get $10 million dollars for the album, if not from a true Bone Thugs fan then from a rich person who buys expensive things just because. With Wu-Tang already pulling off the concept, Bone is simply stating they think they hold the same weight as the Wu in hip hop history. Take a look at the full interview when given the chance and be on the lookout for that new music to hopefully come this year.
After being sentenced in August to 39 months in federal prison for illegal possession of a firearm, it looks like Gucci is getting into some more trouble while already locked up. On Monday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Tom Campbell sentenced Guwop to three years in prison for hitting an Army staff sergeant with a bottle at the Harlem Nights club in Atlanta on March 16, 2013. This newest aggravated assault sentence in Fulton County will run concurrently with the sentence he is already serving. Let’s just hope nothing else happens to Gucci while locked up and let’s also hope his catalog of tracks doesn’t dwindle anytime soon and we still get some new music.
G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean has joined Roc Nation’s roster of managed artists meaning he has severed ties with Kevin Liles’s KWL Management.
