Stereogum has reported that physical copies of the release are hitting stores around the world, leading to alleged images of the album's artwork and tracklist hitting the internet this week.

Sia stopped the unnamed party from cashing in by sharing the photo herself. "Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans," she wrote. "Save your money, here it is for free. Every day is Christmas!"

That's quite a 180 from threatening to "knock [the rap icon] out" in January. During a recent concert, Kodak shared a selection from his upcoming Weezy collaboration: The crowd went wild and fans got to hear about a minute of Wayne's distinctive voice. Kodak seems genuinely excited about the prospect of sharing a record with the "Lollipop" MC. Kodak also says he has an unreleased track with Birdman.

"Surprisingly to some, I'm not dead," she wrote on Twitter. "I'm not releasing any singles or new music with my new label until Jan 2018. Sorry about that BUT' I am making a Christmas album. Just kidding, I'm not making a Christmas album. I am going to put some songs up tonight that my friend Ljay Currie produced for me over the summer that I feel are motivational."
"We both say its fine if you download them so I sign my own permission slip," she wrote. The R&B infused "Going Up" includes slick beats and rapid-fire vocals, while "Good" features smooth rhythms that compliment her raps about pursuing a music career when she was younger. "I remember like 10 years ago/ I wanted my name up in bold/ I wanted my name up in lights/ I wanted to rock every show," she spits.
She practiced, posed and dreamed of being a star, she raps. And now her dreams have become reality: "I used to take pics in the mirror/ I had to get ready for Vogue/ And now I'm way bigger, way bigger, way bigger than I ever could have dreamed before."
"Never Satisfied," which features slow rapping and atmospheric music, is reminiscent of Drake. And "Hate on It" is about taking on haters. "I don't like being told no/ I prove 'em wrong/ There's no such thing as no when you're on your own." Download Iggy's new songshere.

"I don't want to say it's the best place I've ever been because there's always room to go higher -- or get higher," King shared. "I am having a lot of fun. I do this thing, I call it protecting my joy, and there's like a 10-foot radius around me that's like a bum-out-free zone. I took a lot of things out of my life that were dead weight, and I just have a different outlook; I just surround myself with better people and just make music all the time. It's just so great; it's awesome."
King went on reveal that the divorce has fueled much of her impending sophomore album, which she's been working on."The record is a whole other entity in and of itself. It's a creation that is beyond me as a person, as a soul, and it's the most magical thing that I've done in my life so far," she revealed. Read morehere.

In a post on Facebook, the Jay-Z wrote, "The sentence handed down by the Judge against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career."

Jay-Z wasn't the only artist to comment on Mill's sentence. "Was wit u then & WE STILL WIT U NOW!!! This too shall pass," wrote T.I. "You got this!!! God places the heaviest loads on the strongest backs. We got real love for u out here KING. ." Read morehere.
Reactions to the name change were mixed, to say the least. In the wake of the confusion, Diddy resurfaced to say the change was a "joke." "Well ladies and gentlemen, today I've come to the conclusion that you cannot play around with the internet," he wrote. "Due to overwhelming response from the media out there and just due there not wanting to be any confusion, I was only joking. OK? I didn't change my name. It's just part of one of my alter egos."
You can call Diddy whatever you want. "One of my alter egos is Love, but to set the record straight because I have a lot of press to do the next couple of weeks, you can address me by any of my older names. But if you still wanna call me love, you can call me Love, baby. But I was only playing." Read morehere.
