Big Boi — Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper and one-half the legendary duo Outkast, Big Boi has released his new solo project, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. It’s far from a typical hip-hop album; every song has a different feel to it, sometimes even stepping outside of the genre.

CFN

Gazette staff
Recording artist Keri Hilson, known for her sexiness and power collaborations (Nelly, R. Kelly and Kanye West), appears to be hot ’n’ heavy these days with Serge Ibaka, OKC Thunder’s power forward. A few weeks ago, Hilson celebrated her birthday in Bricktown after the Thunder’s trouncing of the Los Angeles Lakers at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Straight outta high school

Local rapper Kulprit D comes of age in the hip-hop game with his latest project.


Music

Louis Fowler
How did Eazy-E get his nickname? What about Dr. Dre or Ice Cube or any other master MC with a moniker? Chances are few of them got it as part of a misunderstanding at high school.

T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.
