Hip Hop Week In Review: Lil Peep, XXXTENTACION, Nicki Minaj & Eminem
More album reviews of new projects from Stalley, Jaden Smith, Talib Kweli, CyHi The Prynce, Chris Brown and T-pain (and that's just the start).
HipHopDX – This week in Hip Hop, 21 year old emerging rap star Lil Peep died. His untimely death from a suspected overdose of Xanax has sparked a great conversation about the glorification of drug use and ignorance around mental health problems.
Also this week, XXXTENTACION threatened to sue to Quality Control after accusing Migos (or at least his crew, perhaps) to jump with him in Los Angeles, and Nicki Minaj attempt to break the internet with her risqué PAPER Magazine cover. Finally, Eminem fans were upset they didn't get a new album from him in the rumored release date, and not hide their displeasure.
