The Rap Up: Ready for The Weeknd

The Weeknd’s New Album is Here… Sort of…

It might be a leak but we’re not complaining over here at The Rap Up. Originally scheduled to drop this Friday, Beauty Behind The Madness hit the internet earlier this week, and is well worth the wait. It’ll be interesting to see how fans receive this new and slightly happier Weeknd as the Canadian superstar makes a small departure from what we’ve become accustomed to in recent years. With the Fall semester right around the corner, this is one album that will help you through those stressful study grinds. Also, get ready for every girl you’ve ever known to start captioning their photos with quotes from this album. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

With some websites retailing limited stock for $1000 a pair, at this point we can only pray Yeezus and Adidas will bless us with more inventory.

 

Marvel x Hip-Hop

There must be some serious Hip-Hop fans over there at Marvel Comics, as the super-hero empire came through and dropped off 9 more Hip-Hop cover art remixes. This is only the second installment of re-done hip-hop cover art by Marvel yet we’ve been told there’s more to come. In fact, they’ve only released half of what they have in store. As we patiently wait for the rest, The Rap Up would like to go on record and predict that Iron Man replaces Drake on the cover of Nothing Was The Same.
