Unless you’ve been living under a pile of pebbles, it’s likely you saw the headlines about Dame Dash giving Kanye West a BET Honors Award this past weekend. The headlines were compounded by selfies of a toothless Dame with his armed wrapped around Yeezus.
So what really went down? What are his thoughts on hooking back up with Ye? And what up with that missing tooth? Well, a composed Damon explains above.
Well, we know it’s Yeezy Season. And today we’ve found out that it’s Rihanna Season as well. A source told the Sun that Rihanna is planning her big comeback (did she ever go anywhere?) for the 57th Grammys on February 8th, with a live performance of “FourFiveSeconds” alongside Paul McCartney and Kanye West.
“Rihanna’s seriously pleased to have bagged a big slot at The Grammys and two huge names to kick off her comeback.”
So yeah, it looks as if its Yeezy, Ri Ri and Paul season. Hopefully this isn’t just a rumor, but I foresee it happening. This record has Grammy written all over it and I’m sure we won’t be able to escape it a few moths from now.
Chicago songstress, Jean Deaux, was recently out in LA LA land — more specifically at Truth Studios to do some work, and while at the house Nick built she did a live, in-studio rendition of “Equilibrium” off her recently released Soular System album.
Grab that here if you slept.

From his Bird Bath EP to his verses on the newly released T.R.U. Jack City mixtape from The Real University, Cap 1’s been killing it lately and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be stopping anytime soon.
Cap grabs ATL hot boy (pun intended) Bankroll Fresh for “Sold It All,” which you can listen to below the jump. This joint is tough.

If you’ve been following FSD and/or Tree’s career closely, then you know 2015 holds a new album from the production/rapping wiz, which he’s christened TrapGenius. And the rollout has begun with a trailer for the tape as well as the exciting leak for “Don’t Een Kare.”
Today, however, we get his documentary for the project, aptly titled TrapGenius: The Documentary. Tree offers this short film up as a counter to Noisey’s Chiraq documentary that dropped last year. This is the Chi as Tree sees it, and it’s a v gritty piece.
“This documentary is my attempt at clarifying what a trap genius is. Not one who is in the action of trapping or a victim of the trapping but one who is proficient in the wisdom and understanding of the trap. One who can adapt to and penetrate any trap!! This is not my trap! I do not know these individuals! So my understanding of the environment in general allows me to maneuver in any trap or trap-like environment.”

The Cost of Victory drops on Friday. This is your final warning.
