It has Kendrick and his friends posted up in front of the White House. The title of the album is “To Pimp A Butterfly”. I know it doesn't make much sense now, but I'm sure the album will explain everything just like good kid, m.A.A.d city.

Also checkout King Kendrick chop it up with Big Boy below. They talk about Jay Rock's long delayed album, adjusting to fame, the album, and much more. UPDATE: The tracklist has been revealed although it lacks the features and production credits.

Big K.R.I.T. - B4SXSW

This is why I love K.R.I.T. He releases a new track, but instead of a plain old release he screws the track. He bodies it as always. One day he'll get his just due, I have faith.

Lupe Fiasco – Atomic Misphilosophy

Lupe revisits hisFood & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 sessions for his latest release. As always he comes through with great bars and a great message. Shoutout to 1500 Or Nothin n the production.

Schoolboy Q Acts As "Principal For The Day" At Baltimore High School

Original Story A Baltimore, MD high school was awarded with a visit from Schoolboy Q on Wednesday (March 11), after it won Get Schooled's National Attendance Challenge.

Students at Maritime Industries Academy High School reached their attendance goal by raising it 10% this semester and were rewarded with the TDE rapper as their Principal–for–the–day.

Q played basketball with the students and spoke to them during a question-and-answer period about the importance of believing in yourself.

When the event was over, Q took to his Instagram account to share an image of himself among the students and a caption with his sentiments regarding the day.

"Had a great time witH @GetScHooled and tHe students of Maritime Industries Academy in Baltimore today! Keep up tHe good work," he wrote.

Check out pictures of ScHoolboy Q as Maritime High's Principal for the day below:

Stalley – All Mine

Scotty ATL linked up with Stack Moses to shoot this new video out in Dallas, TX. It was inspired by DJ Greg Street, who he also has a EP in the works wth. This track appears on the retail version of his latest project Spaghetti Junction. I personally still have the mixtape version of Sphaghetti Junction in rotation and it was one of the best projects released last year in my opinion.

Jasmine V - One Night (feat. Problem & Jeremih)

Last time we heard from Jasmine V she delivered her Kendrick Lamar assisted single That's Me Right There. Today she returns with a another single though this time Problem & Jeremih are enlisted. Check out the track below.

Kevin Gates - Her (feat. Boobie Black)

New one from Luca Brasi and Boobie Black. This will land on Digital Trapstar's "Screens On Lock 2" mixtape.


What "Backpacks & Traps" Means

Backpack rap is socially conscious hip-hop. It is not necessarily overtly political, but it discusses social issues and conflicts. Trap music is filled with confrontation and aggression, whether in the lyrical subject matter, the hard, driving beats, the noisy sampling and production, or any combination thereof. The beautiful thing about Hip-Hop is that these contrasting styles can be enjoyed by the same person.
