BIG SEAN has #1 Album with “DARK SKY PARADISE” 

According to reports, Sean’s new LP managed to sell over 173,000 copies in its opening week.

With that opening sum, it gives Big Sean his best sales week ever as well, trumping the 87,000 start of his first album, Finally Famous, in 2011. His second studio set, 2013’s Hall of Fame, bowed with 72,000. Both sets debuted and peaked at No. 3. (HITS Daily Double)





Chris Brown a Father???

proud father of a 9-month-old baby girl … TMZ has learned.

The baby’s mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia — who we’re told has known Chris for several years. 

Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms — however they’re not together romantically. We’re told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.

It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place — and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support.

One thing’s for sure … baby girl looks a lot like Daddy.

Rich Homie Quan is Cool with Other Races Using the N-Word 

“I feel good, man, because it’s that kind of trap that we want people to do,” Homie said when asked about his take on fans rapping to his “My N*gga” song. “It’s almost like cross-over music. I feel good. I don’t really look at nothing by it. It’s good. You make music so people can recite it and that’s what they’re doing, they’re reciting the song. … I wouldn’t say racism is worse in the South because it was so hard in the South, I think people are very nice in the South now and don’t want to go back to those days. I’ve seen very little racism since I’ve been living.” (VLAD TV)

Kanye West Reveals New Album Title ‘So Help Me God’

Kanye West has spent the past week in Europe promoting an “80-percent done” new album that didn’t have an album title or a release date. However, the rapper cleared up one of those questions last night on Twitter when he revealed that his upcoming Yeezus follow-up would be titled So Help Me God. West’s tweet was accompanied by an image that could be So Help Me God‘s album cover: a diamond shape connected at the points by four lower-case m’s that Reddit discovered is a 13th century monastic symbol for the Virgin Mary.

‘Empire’ Character Lucious Lyon Was Inspired By Jay Z

Turns out that Taraji P. Henson’s Empire character Cookie isn’t the only one inspired some of the finest in hip-hop. The show’s creator Danny Strong has revealed that Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard, is based off of Jay Z.

During a visit to Sway in the Morning, Strong and Sway addressed the negative feedback the show has gotten for the stereotypical aspects of some of the characters’ story lines, like Lucious being a drug dealer-turned-music mogul.

“I’ve heard that, but there’s certainly some truth in that,” Strong said. “The Jay Z story, which very much inspired Lucious Lyon, certain elements of Lucious Lyon, was that story.”  He continued “So for me, I don’t think in terms of  ‘Okay we have to be careful of certain things because of certain negative stereotypes’. I view it as the entire cast is African-American [so] we’re gonna have all different types of characters and we’re gonna tell good stories. We’re not gonna sit here and play defense or think that our show is a representation as Black culture in its entirety. It’s not; it’s just this story.”
