Last week was another roller coaster ride with super highs and major lows.
As XXL released their 2013 Freshmen class, NY Giant Shaun Roger became fresh meat during a hotel room encounter with a Miami club girl.
After Justin Timberlake's new album almost went platinum, outsiders can assume that Papoose can't understand why Jay-Z ever went platinum since he described the mogul rapper's artistry as "alright."
Additionally, as we mention below, Chris Brown may still hold some resentment toward Drake and Kirko Bangz may have a bone to pick with Beyonce.
If the above is not enough, Kanye West may top the cake with his self-titled immortality.
Among the commotion, there were a couple of accomplishments along the way. Besides 50 Cent landing No. 5 on Forbes 2013 Cash King List, he managed to launch the official music video for "We Up" featuring Kendrick Lamar. Kidd Kidd also came out with the visual for his single "Another Day."
Through all of this, it was still possible to chase down heavyweights like A$AP Rocky, Konshens, and Dizzy Wright for one on ones. Enjoy!
We met backstage with the self-proclaimed "pretty now gorgeous" A$AP Rocky. Flashing back to the MTV Music Video Awards moment when the rapper grabbed Rihanna's booty, the question of whether A$AP Rocky smashed had to be asked. Unfortunately, he couldn't give a straight answer.
Switching subjects, he gave a shout out to Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and 2 Chainz for making "F*ckin' Problems" one of last years hottest tracks.
See him talk about his prodigy A$AP Ferg making it, wearing long shirts that get confused for skirts, and how he has banged mad h*es.
Plus, Schoolboy Q takes over the interview to confront Jack Thriller on a sticky situation.
Earlier in the week we caught up with the reggae artist Konshens to get a bit familiar. Although very down to earth, the Kingston, Jamaica native said he rather not have his personal life in the limelight. Instead, he wants his music to shine. His reasoning is because he is a regular person that doesn't want to be put on a pedestal. Despite that philosophy, he always manages to show love to his fans because several years back he was in their shoes. As for his music shining, he is still enjoying the success of making it on Nintendo Wii.
See him speak on the origin of his name, the meaning of Bumbaclot, and his new project Mental Maintenance.
Dizzy Wright graced us with his presence and a couple bars when he came by the office. After the lyrical treat, he spoke of being 22 and already rising to the occasion. His success partially had to do with partnering up with Hopsin. Even though Hopsin is his dude, Dizzy opened up about his friend beefing with those in the industry that he actually respects.
When describing his style, Dizzy believes he strives to get the people thinking.
Jack Thriller had an exclusive with Anthony, the designer of LIR Clothing. LIR stands for Loyalty is Royalty and a lot of famous names are catching on. Those like 50 Cent and Wyclef have been spotted wearing the gear. Even Jack admitted to making the clothing line apart of his wardrobe.
Anthony revealed that he will soon expand the brand with jeans, socks, hats, and kid wear. The designer uncovered how LIR got started and the back story of the design.
Anthony's mission is to bring loyalty back to the community and to teach everybody how to be royal in their fashion. No snitches allowed.
