Usher just dropped 'Scream' a few days ago, now comes the Rick Ross featured 'Lemme See'. To be honest, I'm not feeling it as much as 'Climax' or 'Scream', but you can't deny that Usher is pushing out some hits. Go on, Usher.

Nicki Minaj flew to Hawaii to shoot the visual for 'Starships', honestly, I'm a bit disturbed by it. Watch as the HB dons a green wig and a pink bikini then proceeds to dance as muscular men get splashed with paint, do a traditional dance and climb mountains...quite disturbing. What's your verdict on the video?
The clip shows Rih posing and rising seductively out of a pool of water, can't wait!
"Ok, phuck it! Ima sneek yall a blink of WHYB! A phuckin BLINK okay??? Ok! Head over to viddy, ima record my laptop screen"
To be honest, I didn't expect Usher to make more music that could complete with the greatness that is 'Climax'...I was wrong. 'Scream' is an upbeat, party track that you can expect to hear in the club this summer(which we love!). Keep it comin', Usher.
"Pop a bottle and celebrate, we made it to a new day"
Mack Maine 'celebrates' life with Lil' Wayne and Talib Kweli. If they can do it, you can do it too. Listen below.

"At 30, PEOPLE's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman has many accomplishments on her résumé, including being a 16-time Grammy winner, an actress and a style and beauty icon. But none is more important than her newest role: playing mom to daughter Blue Ivy, whom she and husband of four years, Jay-Z, welcomed in January. "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," she says. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a sense of purpose on this earth."
During an episode of the Today Show(April 25th), People magazine revealed who would be their 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman, Beyonce Knowles. Check out behind the scenes video and the revealing after the jump.
Wow! Wale gathers French Montana, Diddy and...Ma$e for the remix to 'Slight Work', this is crazy! Yo, he got Ma$e to dust off the mic haha. Back to the actual song, it's dope, Diddy's verse is my favorite, what's yours? Listen below.
"Hoodie on like Trayvon/heard it through the grapevine/ we got extra pills, lean and shrooms/ life for me is just weed and brew"

"The video’s purpose is to celebrate female beauty, pointing the attention on same sex/interracial love,” director Francesco Carrozzini said. “We approached it with simplicity, trying to make the images speak for themselves in the arch of the very simple story told.”
I loved Chester French, but I'm a little on the fence about the video, tell us how you feel about the video in the comment section.
Chuck Inglish really does makes some dope material, man. This time Mac Miller and Curren$y float over one of Inglish's 'cold' beats. Listen below.
B.o.B drops another song from his new album Strange Clouds (May 21st). To be honest, I'm not really a fan of B.o.B, but this is DOPE! Strange Clouds is shaping up to be a really nice project... judging from the previous leaks.
There's no question that M.I.A.'s newest single 'Bad Girls' is dope, especially with the addition of the official video. I guess Bussa Buss didn't think it was hot enough and hopped on it. What do you think of the remix? Necessary or not?

Waka Flocka gets a bit crazy on the May/June 2012 cover of Spin Magazine.
"The 25-year-old Atlanta rapper is the couldn't-be-more-perfect face of our first-ever Loud Issue, dedicated to all things enjoyably and compellingly disruptive. Not just because of his blaring dreadlocks or booming sonics or growled hooks, but — as writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd discovers during a whirlwind international adventure — he's a character at a moment when that quality seems at a premium."
Watch as Flocka takes over the offices of Spin after the jump.
Good new or bad news first? Let's go with good. Meek Mill releases the cover art for his new mixtape Dreamchasers 2, which was slated to drop on April 24th. The bad news is the date has been pushed back to May 7th...womp womp womp.

Coachella gave a lot of artists shine this weekend, one of them being, the mysterious, The Weeknd. Watch as Abel croons some of his hits from the House of Balloons series, like 'The Party and The After Party', 'Gone', 'The Morning' and more. How do you think he sounds live?

I can honestly call this the best Coachella performance that I have witnessed for 2012. A$AP Rocky and his crew absolutely destroyed their set at Coachella. I can't explain further, so watch the Pretty Motherfxcker do his thing, below.
To start off this post, we must, absolutely must, define the word 'cutta'.
In the Bahamas, Cutta is used to label any side-woman or sweetheart a Bahamian man may have. Cuttas are used for one thing, casual sex, which is called cuttin. There is no love involved, eye contact is strictly prohibited and afterwords the cutta must find her way home. Cuttas may be obtained by setting a trap, using a thigh snack from the popular Bahamian restaurant, Bamboo Shack & a $5 phone card. Optional ways to drive a cutta is to be in possession of a honda or maxima.
Now that that's out of the way, I already told you guys that in the Spotlight series, I'm going to drop some new artists that I like but you may not have necessarily heard of, I already gave you B.A.S.S., now I give you Jo Boy & Buddah B. Mab'n, who are also Bahamian. The duo raps their appreciation for 'cuttas' over the instrumental for Big K.R.I.T's 'Money On the Floor', it's an hilarious, yet dope, track. Listen below.
Even with a broken foot, Childish Gambino tore up his set at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Gambino jumped around and performed hits like 'Lights Turned On', 'Heartbeat' and 'Bonfire'. Adding a special treat for the fans, Gambino rapped some new material over some old beats, bringing out Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown. Check out the videos below.
Azealia Banks performed at her first, big U.S. gig, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, on Saturday (April 14). The outspoken, Harlem rapper took to the stage in a mermaid wig and a striped number, spitting out some favourites, such as, 'Bambi', 'Barbie Shxt', 'Runnin' and of course '212'. Banks was so overwhelmed that she cried during her whole set, which was cut short 20 minutes early, due to a goof by her DJ, which didn't matter to a lot of fans, who thought she killed it. Check her set in it's entirety, after the jump.

Kanye released his controversial record 'Theraflu' last week and it's been getting tons of buzz. following its release. It's a hit for most, but the people at Theraflu were not having their product name associated with the song, releasing this statement:
“We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner”.
Although Theraflu didn't take any legal action, Kanye thought ahead, changing the name of the song to 'Way Too Cold' and removing the miniature bottle of Theraflu, featured in the song's artwork, replacing it with a white outline. You can listen to the song and peep the original artwork here.

Coachella has begun! The music festival is packed with big names this year, including Frank Ocean. A lot of people thought his set was mediocre and not worth the hype, what do you think? Watch the video below. Also remember to catch the scheduled streams here.
If you're stuck at home and pissed off that you're not at Coachella, like me, you can catch the live stream of some of your favourite musical acts here, and there's a different artist on each channel. Also, keep in mind that it's set to Pacific time, which is three hours behind Eastern time. Special thanks to the good folks at Coachella for this!

We asked Hima and Kool A.D. from Das Racist to host a hip-hop show for Noisey - they kept things simple and named it RAP SHOW. For the first episode, Hima sat down with Compton MC Kendrick Lamar on St. Patrick's Day to talk about black hippies, the N word, lucid dreaming, and Home Improvement.
Jessie J gets a little help from hit maker David Guetta in her new tune 'Laserlight'. Check out the laser filled video below.
