Billboard’s Twitter account recently posted a photo of North West along with mama Kim K. The caption read: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” The kicker? It showed North West about to lick what may or may not be lollipop. Not a good look when you put the two together. The tweet in […]

A$AP Rocky, the cover star of Billboard Magazine’s next issue, confirmed rumors that his sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP releases on May 12.

More often than not, it’s what Azealia Banks says outside of the studio that makes headlines. Not to slander her musical talents, but she has a rather, umm, uncanny ability to say things that get people going.

Azealia Banks graced the cover of latest issue of Playboy, in which she bared her unmentionables. Now, the Harlem rap star returns a bit more clothed, but with her usual candor in on the cover of Billboard Magazine.

Despite abandoning his Twitter account on January 13, Chicago rapper, Lupe Fiasco, still has plenty to say. In an interview with Billboard, Lupe sounded off on everything from his contentious relationship with Atlantic Records to his interest in painting.

Who better to surpass the legendary rock band in hit singles than the king of anthems himself? Drake can now brag about his 72nd appearance on Billboard’s Hot 100, which oneups The Beatles.

Despite what we may have made up in our minds about Chris Brown, the only thing he’s trying to do now is move past his mistakes. Billboard‘s latest cover story gives us the details.

Love him or hate him, Drake is undeniably the guy right now. One of the very few MCs who consistently shake up the Billboard charts, the Toronto native set a new record this week.

Only Garth Brooks stands in between Eminem and total sales supremacy.
