• Eminem rap battle pay-per-view hollow da don joe budden total slaughter

    Eminem Brings Ridiculous Hype for Pay-Per-View Battle-Rap Event

    The first trailer for the Eminem-hosted battle-rap event Total Slaughter looked more like a local car dealer commercial, but the latest ad for the pay-per-view program makes it look like a boxing match for the ages. Even if you're not up to speed with underground rappers, this three-minute spot might get you hyped up to see Hollow Da Don take on Joe Budden like it was Holyfield vs. Tyson all over again (minus the ear-biting). As of this video, they're making the chart-topper Budden seem like an underdog up against Mr.

  • Weezer 'Everything Will Be Alright in the End' New Album Cover

    Weezer's 'Everything Will Be Alright in the End' Album Cover is a Monster

    We've known since March that Weezer are working on a new album, thanks to a series of teaser videos. Just last week, they posted one featuring a young Rivers Cuomo setting out to follow his rock-star dreams, with the group revealing the title of the new LP: Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Of course, if you can catch a mid-concert frisbee without missing a beat like Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson, yeah, you'd have a pretty positive outlook on life, too. Anyway, their latest clip, "My Mystery," features some band footage, a boy sleeping, a new song that sounds kinda like the theme from The Office, and finally, the new album cover, which depicts a giant monster whose sharp teeth suggests that it might not be the cuddliests of beasts. But hey, the title and artwork are way, way better than the ones for Hurley and Raditude.

  • Nicki Minaj denies Iggy Azalea Shade Beef BET Awards

    Nicki Minaj Denies Throwing Shade at Iggy Azalea's Lack of Originality

    A few days ago at the BET Awards, Nicki Minaj the award for the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award for the fifth year in a row and gave a rambling acceptance speech about her career and how she recently thought she was going to die, but declined to elaborate what happened. One might think that would be the part of the speech that drew the attention of the media, but it was actually a segment when she declared her authenticity that people picked up on, believing that she was actually dissing fellow nominee Iggy Azalea."I thank god that I've been placed in a position to do something and represent women in a culture that is so male-driven," she said.

  • Lily Allen 'URL Badman' Video Vice

    Lily Allen Destroys Online Haters in Colorful 'URL Badman' Video

    Lily Allen has had enough of online trolls, and she makes that pretty clear in her Sheezus track "URL Badman." As Stephanie Benson wrote in her SPIN review of the album, there's a lot of satirical misfiring here, what with the cliched insult of saying that online critics work in their mother's basements (most of us have apartments without basements) in their PJ's (we can't afford shiny pleather outfits). This lyric is the most telling: "It's not for me? It must be wrong / I could ignore it and move on," she sings from the viewpoint of an Internet troll, but the whole reason this song exists is to write about something she hates and can ignore.

  • The-Dream Marches for Race, Politics, and More in Powerful 'Black' Video

    The-Dream Marches for Race, Politics, and More in Powerful 'Black' Video

    Back in April, The-Dream shared the lyric video for his single "Black," a clip that cut together news footage of several activists, including fist-raising Olympians John Carlos and Tommie Smith, gay politician Harvey Milk, and Russian political punks Pussy Riot. Now the man born Terius Nash returns with a proper clip for the song that continues in the all-inclusive, powerful vein of its predecessor. Here, The-Dream is shown in the midst of a shanty town, surrounded by marchers carrying signs for a number of movements, including Occupy Wall Street and supporters of a free Ukraine, as well as people from all over the world bearing their countries flags.

  • How to Dress Well 'Childhood Faith in Love' Video

    How to Dress Well Wraps Video Trilogy With Bizarre 'Childhood Faith in Love'

    After taking some dark, eerie turns in the videos for "Repeat Pleasure" and "Face Again," How to Dress Well's Tom Krell finishes up his "What Is This Heart?" video trilogy with a slightly happier, but still weird, clip for "Childhood Faith in Love." Here, the young protagonists have survived some hardships, including the funeral pyre for a loved one, and it's all taking an emotional toll. After a long trek through a desert and forest, they find solace in — where else? — a remote gas station. There, the female half of the duo loads up on water and some snacks, which they feed to each other outside. It seems to do the trick in lifting their spirits, but then again, the oddball ending suggests that maybe things aren't so good after all.

  • Christ Bearer Wu-Tang Severed Penis Porn

    Christ Bearer, Penis-Severing Wu-Tang Affiliate, Wants to Do Porn Now

    As the saying goes, there's no such thing as bad publicity, and that certainly applies to rapper Christ Bearer. If the name doesn't ring a bell, this surely will: He's the Wu-Tang Clan affiliate who cut off his penis and jumped off a second-story balcony while high on PCP. The non-Wu member's member has since been reattached and, as he tells TMZ in a fairly unhinged video, it works well enough that he wants to film a porno.A brave cameraman asked Mr. Bearer if his penis is still functional, and the rapper replied, "Can Chris Brown dance? Can Kanye West rant? Can Jay Z fight off a trick? I’m doing porno soon." He then shouts out Vivid, the porn manufacturer that sold Kim Kardashian's tape a few years back.

  • Titus Andronicus 'Stranded (On My Own)' 7-Inch Series

    Titus Andronicus Unleash 'Stranded (On My Own),' Kicking Off Single Series

    Last year, Titus Andronicus debuted a new track called "Fatal Flaw," which was supposed to be the first taste of the band's follow-up to 2012's Local Business. According to frontman Patrick Stickles, the Brooklyn-based, Jersey-bred group's next LP would be a massive, 30-something-song rock opera about manic depression, inspired in part by his own experiences with the condition. While that album has yet to materialize, Titus are back with a new track, "Stranded (On My Own)," which leads off a new series of 7-inch singles.
