The iconic film Purple Rain starring the late Prince is set to be turned into a stage musical. On Monday (January 8), theatre producer Orin Wolf confirmed the 1984 rock musical film is being adapted for the Broadway stage. The project will be helmed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, who recently directed the acclaimed show, The Skin of Our Teeth.

“It’s been almost 40 years since Prince’s legendary film, Purple Rain, took the world by storm and we can’t think of a more fitting tribute than to honor Prince and the Purple Rain legacy with this stage adaptation of the beloved story,” L. Londell McMillan, chairman of The NorthStar Group, and Larry Mestel, founder and chief executive of Primary Wave Music, said in a joint statement.

The musical will follow the story of an up-and-coming rock musician in the Minneapolis club scene. It’s set to feature a number of classic Prince tracks, including “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy” and “I Would Die 4 U” as well as the titular song, “Purple Rain.”

The music icon’s film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score and made around $70 million at the box office when it was first released. Prince, real name Prince Rogers Nelson, died of an accidental fentanyl overdose in 2016. He was 57.

Representatives of the rightsholders to his music have confirmed they are supportive of the production.

According to projections from Hits Daily Double, Minaj is headed for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, with nearly 200,000 total album-equivalent units moved in its opening week. It serves as one of the largest debuts of Minaj’s career. The last time she did similar numbers was in 2014 upon the release of her fan-favorite album, The Pink Print.

PF2 has spent five days at the top spot on Apple Music’s worldwide albums chart and six of the songs from the set, including “Needle” featuring Drake and the J. Cole-assisted “Let Me Calm Down,” appeared on Spotify’s Top Songs Debut chart dated December 8-10.

Minaj has also egged on the hype surrounding the project by promising fans additional versions of PF2 in the coming weeks. In a tweet replying to a fan on Twitter (X), Minaj told the user there will be more than one “deluxe” version of the LP while hinting at yet another surprise guest feature.

“Y’all def getting 3 more don’t get on my nerves,” Minaj wrote in part. “And y’all will only get that final #GagCity complete package with y’all friend y’all been asking for IF & WHEN y’all gag the live chi. As for today & tmrw tho…We will certainly roll out the pink carpet for our visitors.”

Every J Cole Feature Verse This Year Ranked

Every J Cole Feature Verse This Year Ranked

Even though he did not release a new album this year, J. Cole has still managed to drop some fire feature verses.

Source: XXLMag

From his appearance on Lil Durk’s uplifting anthem “All My Life” to his thoughtful lyrics on Summer Walker’s “To Summer, From Cole – Audio Hug,” the North Carolina rhymer always seems to remind us why he’s one of the best in the game.

Arguably, J. Cole’s most talked-about verse was on Drake’s abrasive track “First Person Shooter” on his For All the Dogs album. On the song, Cole addresses rumors that he has beef with YoungBoy Never Broke Again. During his verse, the Dreamville leader tells his fans not to believe everything they read online. He seems to be addressing recent rumors that he dissed NBA YoungBoy on Lil Yachty’s “The Secret Recipe,” which he is featured on.

“I still wanna get me a song with YB, can’t trust everything that you saw on IG,” he spits. “Just know if I diss you I make sure you know that I hit you like I’m on your caller I.D.”

Near the end of the song, J. Cole boasts that he’s the greatest, rapping, “When I show up, it’s motion picture blockbuster/The G.O.A.T. with the golden pen, the top toucher/The spot rusher/Sprayed his whole s**t up, the crop duster/Not Russia, but apply pressure.”

So with J. Cole having a phenomenal year with his lyrical appearances, XXL decided to rank his feature verses this year. Check it out below.

In addition to the aforementioned headliners, the event will feature heavyweights such as Big Sean, Don Toliver, YG & Tyga, Summer Walker and Sexyy Red, among countless others. Additionally, one of the late-evening spots on Saturday has been blurred out, and will most-likely be a last-minute surprise reveal.

Earlier this year, Lil Wayne brought out Young Money alum Nicki Minaj during his headlining set at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles.

Weezy went through a slew of his classic singles and legendary guest verses before bringing the rap superstar on stage to accompany him. Together, they played “Bedrock,” “High School” and “Truffle Butter” during the one-hour set.

While performing her new Lumidee-influenced single, “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” the 40-year-old rapper started experiencing technical difficulties in her in-ear monitors. She elaborated on the sound issues in a video posted on Rolling Loud’s Twitter account.

KANYE WEST & TY DOLLA $IGN TO REPORTEDLY DEBUT JOINT ALBUM AT MASSIVE ITALY CONCERT

KANYE WEST & TY DOLLA $IGN TO REPORTEDLY DEBUT JOINT ALBUM AT MASSIVE ITALY CONCERT

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign are reportedly close to releasing a joint album together, and are looking to unveil it at a huge concert in Italy later this month.

Source: HipHopDX

According to Billboard, the Chicago rap icon and California crooner are planning to perform the as-yet-untitled project for the very first time at an undisclosed location on October 27.

Previous reports suggested that the event could be held at RCF Arena (formerly known as Campovolo), an outdoor music venue in the northern city of Reggio Emilia that can hold up to 100,000 people.

It’s also possible that tickets may go on sale in the coming days, although this has yet to be confirmed. When (or even if) the album will be released on streaming services is also unclear.

If it gets the go-ahead, the concert will continue Ye’s trend of stadium-status album rollouts following his The Life of Pablo premiere at NYC’s Madison Square Garden in 2016 and Donda listening parties at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Chicago’s Soldier Field in 2021.

News of a Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign album first surfaced earlier this month when new music from the duo was debuted during a “private listening party” in Italy. The latter also played an unreleased song at a nightclub in Geneva, Switzerland.

It was later reported that the collaborative project was due to be released on October 13, but it is now expected to arrive in the coming weeks. Ye and Ty are said to be currently shopping for a company to partner with to distribute the album.

Drake Drops His New Album For All the Dogs – Listen

Drake Drops His New Album For All the Dogs

On Friday morning (Oct. 6), hip-hop fans experienced the moment the whole rap game spent an entire summer anticipating: the release of Drake’s For All the Dogs. The album features 23 songs and guest appearances from 21 Savage, J. Cole, Chief Keef, SZA, Bad Bunny and more. Kevin Durant serves as the A&R on the new project.

Even though Drake masterfully used a majority of this past summer’s It’s All a Blur Tour as the primary vehicle for the album’s rollout, details about the sound and direction of For All the Dogs were few and far between. However, on Sept. 15, The Boy unleashed FATD’s lead single in the form of “Slime You Out” featuring SZA. After Drake faced backlash from Halle Berry for using a photo of her without permission to promote the single, the track was met with negative reviews from media critics like Charlamagne Tha God. Despite all that, “Slime You Out” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart upon its release.

On Thursday (Oct. 5), the Toronto rap superstar released “8AM in Charlotte,” his newest song in his series of timestamp tracks. The accompanying music video features his son Adonis explaining his For All the Dogs album cover drawing does not actually feature a dog.

Drake Initially Teased a New Project With a Poetry Book
Before the album was officially announced, Drake teased the project by releasing his first poetry book called Titles Ruin Everything, A Stream of Consciousness by Kenza Samir and Aubrey Graham back in June. The book is coauthored with Kenza Samir who is a songwriter with writing credits on many of Drizzy’s albums including his 2015 mixtape, If You’re Reading This, It’s too Late, and his 2018 album, Scorpion.

The 168-page book, available at drakerelated.com and publisher Phaidon.com for $19.95, features Drake’s provocative muses on fame, romance and relationships. “I don’t know if I have ever wanted people to buy or support something more in my life,” the rap superstar wrote in an Instagram post touting his latest literary endeavor.

Along with the book, he promoted it by buying full-page ads in the New York Post, The New York Times and other newspapers. However, in the ad was a QR code that revealed he was dropping a new album with the poetry book.

“I made an album to go with the book…They say they miss the old Drake girl don’t tempt me,” he wrote, before concluding with “FOR ALL THE DOGS” in all caps.

2PAC’S ALLEGED KILLER KEEFE D WILL BE ARRAIGNED

2PAC'S ALLEGED KILLER KEEFE D WILL BE ARRAIGNED

Tupac‘s alleged killer, Duane “Keefe D” Davis, has received an arraignment date, after it was revealed that he’s being held without bail in Las Vegas, NV.

Source: HipHopDX

According to court documents obtained by HipHopDX, Davis has been charged with the Category A felony of “murder with the use of a deadly weapon with the intent to promote, further or assist a criminal gang.” The prosecution is alleging that Davis murdered Pac at the behest of the South Side Compton Crips.

The motive for the killing, according to the prosecution, was “retribution” against the “Dear Mama” rapper, as well as former Death Row CEO Marion “Suge” Knight. Davis will be arraigned on Wednesday (October 4) for the crime.

A copy of the indictment, along with Davis’s mugshot and a copy of the upcoming docket, can be seen below.

COPY OF INDICTMENT – click to view on Google Docs

The caption in the indictment refers to Davis as “Keffe D,” rather than “Keefe D,” though he’s used both nicknames interchangeably.

After the grand jury return hearing on Friday (September 29), Sheriff Kevin McMahill of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department held a press conference to discuss the details of the arrest. McMahill made clear that there’s no statute of limitations for murder in Nevada (or any other state in the union), and credited Davis’s arrest to his department’s dogged willingness to solve the case.

“For 27 years, the family of Tupac Shakur has been waiting for justice,” he said in the press conference. “It has taken countless hours — really, decades — of work by the men and women of our homicide section to get to where we are today.”

He continued: “While I know that there have been many people who did not believe that the murder of Tupac Shakur was important to this police department, I’m here to tell you: that was simply not the case. It was not the case back then, and it is not the case today.”

Davis’s arrest marked the first ever arrest in the investigation into ‘Pac’s murder, which remained unsolved for 27 years.

2Pac was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996. Six days later, he died in hospital from his injuries, cutting short the life of one of Hip Hop’s most influential figures.
