Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" has set the record for the longest running #1 song on Billboard's "R&B/Hip-Hop" chart at 12 weeks. The previous record was held by DJ Khaled's "I'm On One," which stayed at #1 for 11 weeks back in 2011.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" picks up a 12th week atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, setting the mark for the longest-running No. 1 rap song in the chart's history. DJ Khaled's "I'm On One," featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, previously held the record with 11 weeks in 2011 and is the only other rap song to post double-digit weeks at the top.

In a recent PropertyOfZack interview; Brian Weatherbox mentioned that the band's new album has been recorded and now they are working on finishing it and mastering it, as well as looking for labels.
We have a new record that we recorded. After trying to mix it ourselves with friend’s help, we realized we were in over our heads. Now we’re slowly getting to the point where we have some money and want to mix it. It’s been a really long, drawn out process. We were mixing it for six months before we decided to go with the guy who did our last shit. We were starting to think that somehow we fucked it all up, like maybe we had recorded it wrong. Finally, after at least six months of mixing,...

The track listing for The Great Gatsby soundtrack is in the replies. My excitement for a movie about one of my favorite books, is dead.
The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to ‘Moulin Rouge!’ made it a masterpiece, and ‘Romeo + Juliet’s’ score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience,” JAY Z said in a previous statement.
