Here is a dope new weekend roundup of a variety of news and tidbits that happened amongst all the #YeezySeason mania that is going on, hah!
First off, up above, De La Soul performed live with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon. Above is the feel-good "A Rollerskating Jam Named Saturdays" and "Jenifa Taught Me" can be viewed here. De La's got a new album coming out (!) entitled You're Welcome, slated for this Fall.
An intriguing upcoming collab was announced — Mario & Nicki Minaj! Mario revealed the single on the way, produced by Polow Da Don, via a handwritten note from the heart (seen below). May 21st, you can expect to hear this.

And below that, you'll notice the tracklist to Ludacris' upcoming mixtape, IDGAF. There's plenty of big-name features on the 10-track opus, set to be released May 24th. Whew! How bout that for some quick-hit news?!
Wait, one late addition: Action Bronson tweeted a collab project with Harry Fraud called Saab Stories will be impacting early June.

The legendary iconic Mariah Carey blessed us this holiday season with a special performance on NBC’s Christmas In Rockefeller Center filmed in New York City. A night filled full of festive performances accompanied with vocals only a true vocalist could deliver. Mariah preformed Christmas classics like her originally penned All I Want For Christmas Is You and Christmas Time Is In The Air Again.
The latest (and final!) episode of the E! reality series surrounding Nicki Minaj, My Truth, premiered on the televisions, and now can be seen if you missed it on the interwebs. For those who've watched the series, any change of opinions on Nicki?
Looking ahead to next week's numbers, to little surprise, Rihanna's Unapologetic is projected to debut at #1. The numbers are strong as well: 240-60K, which would make her highest debut yet.
Keyshia Cole's Woman To Woman is projected to sell between 75-80K and there is no projection yet for Nicki Minaj's Re-Up album. Bottom line is: Rihanna's popularity is only growing. Looks like she'll be here to stay for quite some time.
