What's Poppin with Playmaker

Jay Z working on response to Lemonade?

Naw bruh I ain't believing what I'm hearing! There are reports that Jay Z is working on an album in response to wifey Beyonce's Lemonade. Look, I know people are wanting to hear new music from Jigga, but a response album? Like Ja Rule did with 50 Cent? K Michelle with Idris Elba? Naw I hope that isn't the case. But then again, nothing should surprise me in today's music industry and with these two. So do we get a visual for his album when it comes out? Check out this story here: Read more...

Views is out!

Drake's new album Views has finally dropped and people are talking about it good and bad! I personally listened to it today and I think it's a good effort and another good album but not sure if it lived up to the hype that surrounded the release. My favorite track on the album is Weston Road Flows which has a Mary J. Blige sample from the My Life album so you know I like that! Other tracks that standout for me was Views, Hype, 9, and Grammys featuring Future. Controlla I like too on the low. Anyways, here's a review from Rolling Stone on the album. What are your thoughts on Views if you've listened already? Read more...
