Young Thug And Tyga Need You To Pass Them The “Hookah”

The rumors regarding Young Thug‘s decision to join the Young Money family may have been false, but that is not stopping Atlanta’s biggest up and comer from hopping on a new track with Mr. “Rack City” himself.

Opening the track and providing a hook that falls in line with “Stoner” in terms of simplicity, Young Thug has no trouble fitting into the world of Tyga. Their flows may differ, but their wordplay is surprisingly similar, and coupled with a beat that brings to mind late nights under tinted lights, they create one hell of …

Why “Trophies” Is The Best Song Of 2014 So Far

News broke this week that Young Money is planning to give Drake‘s “Trophies” a proper promotional release as part of their upcoming label compilation, Rise Of An Empire. The song, which was produced by the one and only Hit-Boy, was originally teased on Drake’s fall 2013 tour before being released for free at the end of the year as a thank you to fans. Whether you have heard the song before now or not no longer matters because it will soon be blasting in regular rotation on every top 40 station in America, which is perfectly fine …

Mixtape: Jae Millz – ’1990+’

Young Money’s Jae Millz has released a new mixtape celebrating the sound of early 90s hip-hop.

Titled 1990+, the first offering from Jae Millz of 2014 finds the YMCMB up and comer going in over instrumentals you may not have heard in years. It’s a collection of classics being given new life thanks to Millz’ gruff delivery. You can stream and download the album, which features thirteen tracks and no guest features, below.

Jae Millz has been poised for big things since 2012, but for one reason or another he has not cracked the code of mainstream attention. I …

Young Thug Allegedly Signs With Young Money

The hype surrounding up and coming Atlanta emcee Young Thug has risen to a deafening point of insanity in recent months. Now, according to at least one major hip-hop blog, the “2 Cups Stuffed” rapper is poised for even bigger things thanks to a new deal with Young Money Records.

According to Mass Appeal, who briefly spoke with Young Thug following a recent performance, Thugga Thugga has confirmed he is now a member of Young Money Records. When asked point blank about the truth behind rumors of the deal, Thug allegedly replied “Yeah I signed.”

Lil Wayne Reveals ‘Tha Carter V’ Release Date

After weeks of rumor and speculation, Lil Wayne has confirmed plans to release Tha Carter V later this year.

It has been a while since Lil Wayne graced us with a solo release, but May 5 Tha Carter V will allegedly see the light of day. I say allegedly because every single album or mixtape Wayne has released in the last five years has undergone one, if not several delays.

No music is available yet for Tha Carter V, but considering that Drake revealed the existence of the album earlier this month it’s likely we will see him contribute …

This “Drake Weather” Website Will Make Every Storm A Bit More Entertaining

This post would not be possible without the brilliant minds of anonymous. Thank you, internet. May you never cease to amaze and amuse.

Three web designers who go by the names “Tom, Bob & Bert” have launched a new weather forecast website based on the artwork for Drake‘s 2013 album Nothing Was The Same. Visitors to the site are greeted with a full page image of Drake’s head lifted directly from the cover of NWTS, as well as the current weather conditions in their area.

She’s Back: Paris Hilton Just Wants To Have A “Good Time” (With A Little Help From Lil Wayne)

Around 2006/2007, Paris Hilton was as ever-present in the world of pop culture as the Kardashian clan is today. Having found success in reality television and adult film, someone handling the heiress agreed with her notion that a career in pop music would be the next best move. She released a single that no one cared for, followed by an album that tanked almost as hard as Kevin Federline’s debut, and a short time after disappeared from the spotlight. She later in the world of EDM, which seemed more fitting as it involved mindless button pushing instead of actual vocal …

REVIEW: Drake – Nothing Was The Same

Artist: Drake
Album: Nothing Was The Same
Genre: Hip Hop
Label: OVO Sound

For the last five years Drake has more or less been in a league all his own. So Far Gone catapulted him to the forefront of the pop-rap movement at the tail-end of the 2000′s with a sound many would soon imitate, and not long after Thank Me Later solidified his brand as a fixture of urban music landscape. Time passed, a number of fantastic collaborations occurred, and then Take Care was released. It was on that album that Drake fully realized what he was capable of …

TREND KILLER: Lil Twist Debuts “Twerk” Featuring Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber

Twerk music has officially died.

A little over a month after taking to Twitter with the announcement he would be collaborating with two of pop’s biggest names, Young Money artist Lil Twist has released a new single called “Twerk” featuring Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. This is not a joke, but it is a bit of an embarrassment.

Complete with speaker-breaking bass and a hook that is simpler than the dance move that inspired it, “Twerk” arrived online this afternoon with very little promotion. The recording making the rounds on blogs appears to be low quality however, so there …

Drake Debuts “Hold On We’re Going Home”

In the words of Monty Python, “…And now for something completely different.”

While the blogosphere spent the late night and most of this morning discussing all that happened during OVO Fest in Toronto, Drake realized the opportunity to maximize his current exposure and released a brand new single for the world to enjoy. We have it here on UTG for you to enjoy, but before we get there I feel it’s necessary to prepare you for what lies ahead.

Last week, Drake dropped the star-studded single “All Me” and quickly received global praise for his efforts. The track, …

REVIEW: Various – Rich Gang

Artist: Various
Album: Rich Gang
Genre: Hip Hop/Rap

Hip hop labels have been using the strength of their entire roster as a way to promote individual artists for as long as anyone can remember, but surprisingly it wasn’t until 2013 that Young Money and Cash Money decided to get in on the action. The labels, which are run by Lil Wayne (Young Money) and Bryan “Birdman” Williams (Cash Money), have made millions with star-studded singles and remixes, so it makes perfect sense that a compilation release would one day surface. Unfortunately, the resulting Rich Gang album that hits stores this …
