Well hello, August! We are officially eight months deep into 2017 and, like you, we’re wondering where the time went. However, we’re not wondering where all the music news is because it’s all right here. This week has kept in line with recent weeks and has been chock full of news items concerning you favorite entertainers. Don’t worry, though, we’ve been keeping tabs on what’s been poppin’ off in these streets. We’ve got word on why you should stop holding out for the Andre 3000 solo project (or the Outkast reunion, for that matter) you’ve been dreaming of, how Anthony Hamilton is bringing his chef skills to a kitchen near you and the major honor that LL Cool J just landed for the culture. Plus we’ve got news on Brandy, Janelle Monáe, Kanye West, Usher and more. If you don’t wanna wait, then it’s not too late, just read on.
