A$AP Ferg Unveils Cover Art & Tracklist For 'Still Striving'

The rapper's upcoming album will reportedly feature Snoop Dogg, Migos, and more. 

A$AP Ferg has some new heat dropping this week. In preparation for his forthcoming album's Friday release, the Harlem rapper dropped the cover art and tracklist for Still Striving, and it's super black to say the least.

The album cover, which was shot by photographer Renell Madrano, captures the back of Ferg's head as he tries to tie the final knot on his dull blue, durag. The hair wrap and the rapper's complexion add a nice contrast to the burgundy background as well.

In terms of the tracklist, the 14-track project features a number of well-known artists and veterans in the game. On the old-school tip, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and Cam'ron are present. Newer talent, including Nav, Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti, Dave East, and Madeintyo are also on the album. And of course, A$AP Rocky managed to slide in a feature as well.

A$AP has a lot of new music and projects coming out soon. At the beginning of this month, A$AP mob announced their very first AWGEST month, which comes with a bunch of musical and creative surprises. The mob also announced the release of their Cozy Tape Vol. 2 project as well.

Still Striving is Ferg's third studio album, and will serve as a follow up to his 2016 project, Always Strive and Prosper. Still Striving will drop on Aug. 18. Check out the album cover and tracklist below.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Is No Longer The Number One Song In America

Lil Nas X's bonafide smash "Old Town Road" has been dethroned from its unprecedented 19-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to the publication, rising alt-pop star Billie Eilish now has the No. 1 song in the country with her track "Bad Guy." The song has been sitting at No. 2 for nine weeks straight. Lil Nas X, who collaborated with the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, Mason Ramsey and more superstars for various remixes of the song, congratulated the 17-year-old on her first No. 1 hit via Twitter.

"Old Town Road" now holds the No. 3 spot behind  Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's "Señorita."

The Atlanta musician catapulted to fame after "Old Town Road" made the rounds. Initially, it was removed from Billboard's Country chart for reportedly not implementing enough elements of the genre. Since then, it has shattered records and expectations.

Just a few weeks ago, it became the longest-running No. 1 in American music history, breaking a record held by Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber (for "One Sweet Day" and "Despacito," respectively).

Lil Nas X has a lot to be proud of. Congrats on a historic run.

congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!

Get Ready: A Three 6 Mafia Reunion Tour Is On The Way

Three 6 Mafia is on their way to a stage near you. According to an Instagram post from Juicy J, the popular hip-hop collective will be performing at a series of very special reunion shows.

Per the flyer, one of the shows will be held on Oct. 12 at the Landers Center in Mississippi. The show will also star DJ Paul, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, DMX and all original Hypnotize Minds & HCP Members (Gangsta Boo, Crunchy Black, Project Pat, Lil Wyte and La. Chat).

“I know this is what the fans have been asking for, so we're ready to bring them the classics, along with our new music in the best possible way,” said DJ Paul in a statement. “To quote LL, don't call it a comeback, we have officially been here for years, and we've got a lot to show for it. Just wait to see what comes next.”

The Oscar-winning group went on a hiatus back in 2012. Many of the group’s members have released solo projects, and two of the group’s founding members have since passed on (Koopsta Knicca and Lord Infamous).

Tickets to the event will be on sale this Friday (Aug. 23). Take a look at the flyer below.

Jeezy Unveils ’TM104: The Legend Of The Snowman’ Tracklist Feat. Meek Mill, John Legend And More

Young Jeezy plans to round out his discography with a star-studded tracklist for TM104: The Legend of the Snowman (Aug. 23). The Atlanta native revealed the features for his final studio album on Monday (Aug. 19), presenting guest spots from Queen Naija, Ty Dolla $ign, Meek Mill, Gunna, Rick Ross, John Legend, CeeLo Green, Noah Scharf, and Ball Greezy.

“Greatest story ever told!!” Jeezy captioned the announcement on Twitter. TM104 will be the final chapter in Jeezy’s Thug Motivation series, which began in 2005. In 2001, Jeezy began his journey with Thuggin’ Under the Influence (T.U.I.).

In an interview with Billboard, the 41-year-old said he revisited his past albums in order to inform his ideas for this upcoming project. “When I was writing 104, I wanted to go back to what I know but I want to sound new but at the same time, I don't want to feel like I'm trying to keep all the times because real music and a real message is timeless,” he said. “And that's why it was effective listening to those records because they got me to feel his hype as they did when I first heard them in the gym or on the road or whatever. It’s the same feeling when I said certain things so that's what I want for 104 and the only way that I can do that is by listening to all those bodies of work as a whole not good a song.”

In May 2018, Jeezy shared the news that he was finished making music. During his Cold Summer Tour, the “Seen It All” rapper said “It was inspiring seeing my day one fans since my first album & class TM 101 come out every night. Now class is coming to a end. It’s time for Graduation! My last album & final class: TM104 - #TrustYaProcess.”

As the Cold Summer tour comes to a end.. It was inspiring seeing my day one fans since my first album & class TM 101 come out every night. Now class is coming to a end. It's time for Graduation! My Last Album & Final Class: TM104 -#TrustYaProcess ☃️
