Dylan Reznick of Friendzone recently took to Facebook to post an update on the status of the production duo. He says that their long awaited album with Main Attrakionz, 808's and Dark Grapes 3, is finished and will be released on Neil Young's Vapor Records this year.
Creatively, we’re still going strong as ever… Our sound has developed and expanded and gone in all sorts of directions. We’ve also been dedicated to completing our opus with Main Attrakionz, 808s + Dark Grapes 3, and ended up creating 100s of songs and scrapping four or five full length albums. After 3 years and many mental breakdowns, we’ve finally reached a point where we are all completely satisfied with the ...

The head of Arizona public schools says that Tucson Unified School District is violating a state ban on ethnic studies by "teaching an introductory course on hip-hop from the African-American perspective" and including lyrics from Rage Against the Machine.
Superintendent John Huppenthal announced Friday — his last day in office — that he was seeking sanctions against the school if it does not correct course by March 4. He cited an introductory course on hip-hop from the African-American perspective and lyrics from the rock band Rage Against the Machine as violations.

Hit the replies for an interview with Macklemore where he talks about race, white privilege, and Kendrick Lamar.
"As a white dude, as a white rapper, I'm like, how do I participate in this conversation? How do I get involved on a level where I'm not co-opting the movement, where I'm not making it about me, but also realizing the platform that I have and the reach that I have?"

Lil Wayne has taken to twitter to announce yet another delay of Tha Carter V. This time though, he lays the blame squarely at the feet of his label and long time mentor/benefactor Birdman, claiming he and his creativity are prisoners. Pusha T (in a Suge Knight voice) chimed in telling Wayne to move to G.O.O.D. Music if he "wants to drop albums & don't want ur CEO rubbing they hands all in your videos."

Killer Mike has co-written an op-ed in USA Today discussing the treatment of rap music in courts.
As recent research has revealed, rap lyrics have been introduced as evidence of a defendant's criminal behavior in hundreds of cases nationwide, frequently leading to convictions that are based on prosecutors' blatant mischaracterizations of the genre. Ignoring many of the elements that signal rap as form of artistic expression, such as rappers' use of stage names or their frequent use of metaphor and hyperbole, prosecutors will present rap as literal autobiography. In effect, they ask jurors to suspend the distinction between author and narrator, reality and fiction, to secure guilty verdicts.

No, real talk. He has it. He has the album and he told me what he likes. That’s my A&R right there. He has a sophisticated ear. He’s in somebody’s elementary [school] right now knowing all the lyrics. Telling ’em, Watch.

Nicki Minaj recently faced criticism for Nazi imagery appearing in the lyric video for her recent single "Only." Nicki released an apology, while the video's director has issued a statement on Myspace admitting that elements of the video are "...representative of Nazism." The lyric video can be viewed in the replies.
As far as an explanation, I think its actually important to remind younger generations of atrocities that occurred in the past as a way to prevent them from happening in the future. And the most effective way of connecting with people today is through social media and pop culture. So if my work is misinterpreted because it’s not a sappy tearjerker, sorry I’m not sorry....

In a new interview with The Fader, hip-hop producer Metro Boomin says that the final touches are being put on Metro Thuggin, his much anticipated collaboration with Young Thug, and that the project will be out soon.
It's really at the end of mixing now. Just fine tuning and making sure everything's perfect. Once you put it out, you can't go back, so it's just little things like that. It'll be out soon just for the simple fact that I don't want to keep people waiting. As a fan, I find that irritating. That's what helps me in my career: I know how to relate to people, knowing what they want. I'm still on the blogs, reading everything, downloading the songs. I already know how I used...
