We Bid Farewell to a Hip-Hop Mom, Bey Wore Becky’s Skin, and Other Music News This Week

24/7 music news and Bey's wardrobe.

7 Is the Magic Number - Artists were busy this week. Social media had a pretty bad week when one artist's tough days were documented and dragged on various platforms. This week we learned that there are some rappers we'll never stop hearing about. Some just won't let us forget them and others are just so legendary we want more of them. Our favorite divas unveiled some of their latest projects too. Can you guess which ones? -? Jon Reyes(Photo: BET)

7 Days of Tears, Laughter, and Pointing - Alright, folks. We got new music this week! It might sound familiar to some. Just saying. One of our favorite living legends is with child and we couldn't be more excited about that. Never mind the postponed tour. Speaking of tour, a presidential hopeful is going on tour this year. Nope, it's not Donald Trump. It's a round up, so let's round them all up. —Jon Reyes
