  • Pharrell Williams is already one of the most accomplished producers on the planet, but he can now add a new distinction to his canon. The “Happy” singer received a key to the city of Virginia Beach, his hometown, when he gave a speech at his former high school. If P’s presence didn’t inspire those kids, we don’t know what will!

  • Though it’s only been barely more than a week since the group played Hot 97’s Summer Jam, G-Unit is pumping out music like nobody’s business. Though 50 Cent and his crew recently had some differences, it looks like they’ve patched things up to record some summer bangers. So will we get a full LP from the crew by the end of this year?
