Rising 17-year old Chicago rapper RondoNumbaNine who recently dropped his mixtape Real Nigga For Life 2 has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting of a taxi driver on the morning of February 22nd. Police have said some of the incident was caught on security camera while also finding his fingerprints at the scene of the crime. He is currently being held on a $2 million bond.
Kid Cudi has said that his upcoming and highly anticipated album, Satellite Flight is his “best work to date” and we certainly hope hes right but we’re also aren’t sure how he can top Man On The Moon. Today CuDi took to his Twitter to reveal the self-designed cover art along with digital tracklisting for the album expected to be releasing soon. However keep in mind this is not the final version of the tracklist as the physical copies of the album will include more songs.
Peep the artwork above and get a look at the digital tracklist after the jump.
It’s no secret Young Thug is one of, if not the most talked about up and coming rapper in hip-hop right now and with good reason. With the success of his singles “Stoner” and “Danny Glover” along with countless other club banging tracks, the young ATL artist had everyone wondering who would scoop him up and add them to their roster. At first the thought was he would be going with Guwop at 1017 Bricksquad but last night after a visit to DJ Drama and Don Cannon’s Streetz Iz Watchin’ Shade 45 show it is clear Thugger plans on signing with Future and the Freebandz team letting the news out. We are excited to see what Thug and Future cook up in the studio and bring us next. Stay tuned.
Action Bronson will be starting off 2014 on the road as he will be heading out on a nationwide solo tour. The Blue Chips 2 kicks off on January 10th and 11th with back-to-back shows in New York City while ending on February 10th in Hawaii (not a bad way to end a tour).
Take a look at the full list of cities and dates after the jump.
A few months ago Cudder announced during a show in Texas that he planned on dropping a project before he released his next album, Man On The Moon III. Well today it seems as though the pieces to that precursor project are coming together as Cudi announced via Twitter the title. The EP, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon has no release date yet but just the news of the title can get fans excited. The Cleveland rapper previously stated that the EP will connect the storyline from Indicud to Man On The Moon III.

A day after news broke that Jeezy & CTE was joining Roc Nation, we get word that T.I. is also making a label jump. Tip will be taking his talents along with team’s over to Columbia Records and will be leaving Atlantic. T.I. is currently working on his next album with both Timbaland and DJ Toomp which will release under the new umbrella sometime next year.
Jay Z’s Life + Times put up this picture of Hov making another power move yesterday by signing Jeezy Roc Nation under a management partnership deal. After not being happy with Def Jam recently, we think this is a great move for both sides especially with assuming Jeezy is bringing DBCO with him. Hopefully this will not affect the release of #ItsThaWorld 2 which is due out next week on November 27th.
LA super producer DJ Mustard has already been under Roc Nation management but now he will officially be added to the label roster alongside celebrated artists including Rihanna, J. Cole and Rita Ora. Over the last year Mustard has become one of the most sought after producers with his signature LA hip-hop sound. With several hits climbing the Billboard charts and radio plays including 2 Chainz “I’m Different”, Young Jeezy “R.I.P.” and Tyga “Rack City”, DJ Mustard now says he is ready to change people’s perspective that he only makes club records and will have some pop songs coming out soon.
