Love & Hip Hop is probably the best hip-hop related comedy of all time. On season 3 of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Waka Flocka Flame and his baby mama joins cast, so does Yung Joc. Stevie J's baby mama Mimi has a sextape. Momma Dee is still pimping Lil Scrappy and so on. Sounds like a very entertaining season.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta season 3 will premiere May 5th. Watch the super trailer below (US residents only).
Pharrell's brought out Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Tyler The Creator, Snoop Dogg, Diplo and Gwen Stefani with him to takeover Coachella. Setlist ranged from Hollaback Girl to Blurred Lines and Happy.
Watch Pharrell's entertaining set below.
Andre 3000 and Big Boi re-united in Coachella last weekend and did their first gig together as Outkast since 2002. I've read a couple of reviews from the gig and heard something from my friends and i'm not sure if anybody said anything positive about the show itself. Outkast is coming to Finland in August, let's hope they'll be able to improve their set as time goes.
Setlist and full video below.

Last time DJ Mustard broke down "My N#gga" beat. This time it's time for "Sanctified" by Rick Ross. DJ Mustard made the original beat and Kanye West added the sample and slowed it down. Very nice to hear the original version. Mustard says there might be other collaborations with Kanye too - "We did a gang of shit, i left him 100 beats. He cool." Looking forward to.
