Rejjie Snow’s Dear Annie Album Is Here At Last

After years of patiently waiting, Rejjie Snow has finally released his debut full-length album Dear Annie on 300 Entertainment. Leading up to the big drop, the Irish rapper put out the project in two parts, but now all of the songs can be consumed together as intended. Rejjie’s record runs 20 tracks deep and features a variety of special guests including Anna Of The North, Aminé, Jesse James Solomon, Danna Williams, Jesse Boykins III and more to enhance the quality of his rich sound.

From start to finish, Dear Annie is an enjoyable expression of the highs and lows of Rejjie’s journey as a black man trying to find himself within the context of a creative world that often turns against him. Whether he’s grieving an ex, sipping his troubles away, stressing about money, or seducing a MILF, there’s no doubt that you’ll find some common ground. Set off your weekend right and bump the entire hip-hop project in full below.

Vince Staples’ Converse Collection Celebrates His “Big Fish Theory” Album

In a year flooded with new music from hip hop’s biggest artists, Long Beach native Vince Staples saw his second studio album, Big Fish Theory, rise above many others thanks to his thought-provoking dialogue and genre bending sonics. Converse honors his courageous and often divisive opinion with a new collection titled after the highly acclaimed record.

Staples’ unassuming and understated style works in union with Converse as many of their classic American styles have grown to prominence based in subtle aesthetics. Both the Chuck Taylor Hi and Ox Chuck ’70s that define this capsule are largely highlighted in a primary orange shade which mimics the goldfish on Staples album cover. Further, the theme continues with an aquarium sockliner, a Big Fish Theory graphic outsole and Staples’ name embroidered on the medial collar. The capsule also comes with a Converse Essentials Hoodie.

Expect the Vince Staples x Converse “Big Fish Theory” Collection on January 25 for Converse.com.

Wale’s “Shine” Album Inspires Custom Jordan 3

Rap and sneakers go hand in hand since Run-DMC and Adidas linked up back in the late ‘80s. From Kendrick Lamar to Tyler The Creator, we’ve seen a multitude of artists have their artistic impact go beyond the music. Although many artists have linked up a deal with a sneaker brand, some skip on the checks.

To fill that void, Mache customs designed and gifted Wale an Air Jordan 3 inspired by his most recent album, Shine. This custom Jordan features a red upper and the signature arm grasping the moon image, a white outsole and midsole and touches of blue, green and yellow recreate Wale’s album cover.

Check out this clean custom below courtesy of Mache Customs’ Instagram. Be sure to follow them here and read our interview with the Mache man himself, Dan Gamache, here.

Diddy Hits Studio With Rick Ross To Mix Mastermind Album

The release date for Rick Ross’ Mastermind album was pushed to 2014, giving Diddy time to work his magic on the project (which is one of MTV News’ Most Anticipated Hip-Hop Albums of 2014). Rozay revealed that the music mogul will actually be mixing his LP.

He shared the news on Twitter during a studio session early Friday morning (January 10).

Ross and Diddy have been close friends for some time, with the Bad Boy CEO even appearing on the Miami rapper’s Rich Forever mixtape, and now they’re furthering their working relationship.

Rozay recently dropped the Jay Z-featuring single “The Devil is A Lie,” and he probably has a few additional surprises in store.

The Lox Detail Album Plans And Give Credit To Beyonce

(Swizz Beatz and Khaled make progress on The LOX album)

The LOX paid a visit to New York City’s Hot 97 radio station on Thursday morning (December 26) to chat about their new EP, upcoming album and being inspired by Beyonce’s sudden music drop, before getting into a debate about the state of New York hip-hop. Listen below.

“In this business, timing is everything,” Jada explained about dropping their new Trinity EP last week. “Your gut feeling is important and taking chances is always great. It’s like a gamble. Big shout-out to Beyoncé, she paved the way on a bigger scale, before it got exhausted from a hood level, a street perspective standpoint, we were able to do the same thing and capitalize. We ain’t do it because she did it, but – she made it better for us. She made it better.”

“We actually was going to release a few songs for the holidays, few songs, few freestyles,” Styles P added. “We were just going to drop it. We knew nothing of what she was doing and then she dropped it and that added the iTunes into it.”
