Top Hip-Hop Headlines Of The Week – 10/7 – 10/11


In the last few weeks, Kanye West is proving you don’t need a new album to make headlines in hip-hop.

After Kanye’s epic Twitter Meltdown two weeks ago, the out-spoken Chicago rapper made an unexpected appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he hashed out his well-publicized differences with host Jimmy Kimmel. Viewers looking for Kanye to do something memorable were not disappointed when Kanye took over the show to deliver an eight-minute rant touching on his feelings on the paparazzi, his frustrations with the fashion industry and the eternal glass-ceiling for black entertainers in America.

Meanwhile in other hip-hop news, Cam’ron accused Jay Z’s 40/40 Club of refusing to play Dipset music at the night club, Eminem debuted the track list for his upcoming new album, U God slammed his label and Lil Boosie was spotted at a prison rodeo.

These were the top headlines in hip-hop this week. Read on.
