Em covers the December 5th issue of Rolling Stone.
Hit the jump for the full cover and click here for a couple of excerpts from the story.
Here he speaks on being inspired by Biggie and 2 Pac:
“Being a student of hip-hop in general, you take technical aspects from places,” he says. “You may take a rhyme pattern or flow from Big Daddy Kane or Kool G Rap. But then you go to Tupac, and he made songs. His fucking songs felt like something — ‘Holy shit! I want to fucking punch someone in the face when I put this CD in.’ Biggie told stories. I wanted to do all that shit.”
Details about Drizzy’s Nothing Was The Same are surfacing and it sounds like a record that’s worth the wait. Check the excerpt below to see what i’m talking about. Nothing Was The Same drops September 24th.
About the album’s intro “Tuscan Leather.”
Of bombastic album opener “Tuscan Leather,” 40 says, “It’s a three-staged record – one sample flipped three different ways, with a verse over each beat.”
The two then go into detail on the upcoming track “Paris Morton Music II.”
Drake, meanwhile, cites the standout track “Paris Morton Music II” as the clearest proof that he’s stepped up his game. “That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows,” he says. “I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy shit, and he was like, ‘Damn!’”
Here is a quick behind the scenes look into Ricky Rozay’s Rolling Stone photoshoot.

Coming off the heels 2010’s terrific blend, Kush & Orange Juice, a lot was riding on Wiz Khalifa’s major label debut, Rolling Papers. Although the disc spawned a few chart toppers (“Black & Yellow,” “Roll Up”), Wiz abandoned his signature haze for commercial pastures (“Cameras). All isn’t lost though. He shows signs of life on “Star Of The Show” and “On My Level”, but overall, the album is hit or miss. The Taylor Gang shall rise again.
Hip-Hop’s Cheech and Chong take the cover of this week’s Rolling Out issue. In the excerpt below, Snoop and Wiz respond to the public’s take of the pair promoting marijuana.
Snoop: We push having a good time with ourselves and not pushing it on you. We celebrate marijuana because of the joy it brings us. Our relationship was us enjoying that first. Once we put one in the air, we could talk about anything.
Wiz: Some people take a little here and there. Whatever gets you by. We don’t encourage marijuana use for people to be doing what we’re doing. We celebrate it because of how it makes us feel.
Loso is back with another black and white viral and this time it’s for track 11 off, The S.O.U.L Tape. Life’s a beach.
