Past BUST “Man We Love” and New Orleans DJ Rusty Lazer is in town with rapper Nicky Da B and we’re ready to get groovin'. Primarily known as the live DJ and creative partner of Sissy Bounce rapper Big Freedia, Lazer also has some sweet solo spins that are worth getting familiar with. Combining an eclectic range of genres and cultures from the streets of his hometown, Lazer’s sets promise everything from '50s twists to '70s soul and R&B. ... Read More

If you didn’t already know, Childish Gambino is the rapping alter-ego of Community star Donald Glover. His newest mixtape, Royalty, dropped yesterday, and it features RZA, Ghostface Killa, and Beck. But it's the voice who ends Royalty that really has us BUST-ies excited. The fabulous Tina Fey appears on the final track, “Real Estate,” spitting some sick rhymes. With her classically awkward style, Fey half-raps “We droppin’ racks ... Read More
Femcees have a hard time in the hip-hop game. The industry seems to think that it can only acknowledge the work of one female rapper at a time--and each new one gets compared to Nicki Minaj, no matter how little the two have in common. Though female rappers are often treated shittily, talented new acts are popping onto the scene every day. One of my current favorites is Nitty Scott, a Brooklyn-based rapper who spits ridiculous, clever, and insightful bars. Watch ... Read More
In repulsive news of the day, The Game, formerly of 50 Cent’s G-Unit, spat on female fans in Australia:

The allegedly grown-ass man leaned over a railing and spat on a couple of curious fans, bringing to mind the question, "Who the hell does this idiot think he is?" Of course, this isn't his first offense; gossip site Necole Bitchie (sigh) confirms that he and his crew are notoriously disrespectful ... Read More

For ladies who love ladies, pop music can be kind of a downer. All the sexy divas sing about their boy toys and not about their gal pals (Katy Perry definitely does not count. I don’t care if she kissed a girl, nor if she liked it). Don’t get me wrong, I love Tegan and Sara just as much as the next grrrl. The Indigo Girls, too, have been known to provide some solid support in my times of desperate emotional need. Sometimes, though, the vibe I’m ... Read More

Hands down, Mariah's “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is the best Christmas love song ever. But Princess Superstar’s “Xmas Swagger” might give Mariah a run for her money.
This new holiday jam is simple--it's a list of all the things Princess Superstar loves during the holiday season: from beaded sweaters, to kissing under the mistletoe, to Justin Bieber, to hot cocoa (the warm beverage), to hot Coco, Ice-T’s wife.

Move over Nicki Minaj, because there’s another Nikki on the scene--Nikki Lynette. The latter's song, “Shut The F*ck Up Boy,” might have the best chorus ever, and is currently being played on repeat here at the BUST HQ.
Lynette’s got serious mc chops, a slight Left Eye vibe, and a dash of afro-punk style. We think she's a pure original, and a must-watch.
Check the video out below and then go download her new mixtape, Roses ... Read More

Azealia Banks (aka MC Miss Bank$) brings us a brand new type of rap/dance sound in her song "212". Seriously, you'll be dancing way too much. Reining from Harlem, this is the 19-year-old rapper's newer version of the video after the "official" one got leaked by some former friends a few months back. But the best thing about Azealia is not only can she spit, but she can sing too! Either way, I'm still gonna be jamming for a while. She's currently working on her ... Read More

On a recent episode of Conan, Anne Hathaway spat a rap - inspired by Lil' Wayne - to let us all know that she goes hard when she's angry. And because it's Anne Hathaway, it's somewhat charming.

Critics and fans alike have been itching to hear something new in the Rap genre for years, and New Orleans has stepped up to the plate to deliver. Turns out that Louisiana has been a hip-hop incubator for the past decade; dotingly cultivating a set of grade-A chicks, dudes and chick-dudes. Well, the veritable golden egg has hatched and the artists of Sissy Bounce are shouting out, "I'm ready! And I'm tellin' ... Read More
