Top Hip-Hop Headlines Of The Week, 7/8 – 7/12


Today marks the end of Magna Carta Holy Grail week. Jay-Z’s twelfth studio album was released in stores on Tuesday. To celebrate the occasion, Hov went on Hot 97 and Power 105 to chop it up. It’s crazy to hear him doing radio interviews like the old days again. After his press run, he began shooting a video for “Picasso Baby” at Pace Gallery in New York. It was pretty epic to say the least.

Also, J. Cole shoots the video for “Crooked Smile” and Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” video was leaked. All that and more in the top headlines in hip-hop.— Complied By Eric Diep And C. Vernon Coleman
