Watch the video for "Loud" above. His raps have curse words and drug references in them. Kids, be careful! I've been duped by Mac Miller before. When he released "K.I.D.S.," the mixtape that first caught most rap blogs' attention, in August 2010, there was a sleazy charm to Mac's persona. He was the young slacker making no-cred-necessary rap songs about raging, sneakers and hooking up. It was superficial, but catchy and executed well-enough to find its way to the masses of high schoolers and college kids most interested in their Friday nights.

If it had been, Wood's friends and family were there to constantly remind him anyway. “Everyone just kept saying to us, 'You realize it's a really big deal, right?

Australia's Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, has 20 years on her American counterpart. She has 12 albums to Gaga's three. And she's a major touring draw overseas. But despite all that, she's just a niche star in the United States. Her first American tour came only two years ago and stopped at just six cities. This year, though, she's at least doubling up on the engagements, and, she's playing a show at Patriot Center on Saturday. Perhaps it's unfair to compare Minogue to Gaga. Madonna would be the fairer analogy.

Rising country star Kip Moore could have recorded the follow-up to his 2012 debut album in Nashville's plushest studios, but the 33-year-old “Somethin' 'Bout a Truck” singer chose a bare-bones setting that literally had more roaches than luxuries. “No TV, no couches, no nothing in there,” Moore said on the phone last week from the road. “It helped play a mind trick on me, too. I like that feeling of being on edge and not being happy where I was.” The setup is contrived, but for Moore - who performs Friday at Patriot Center as apart of Lady Antebellum's Take Me Downtown Tour - it produced the results he desired.

Sad news from a sad rapper: Drake officially canceled his Nov. 15 show at the Patriot Center this afternoon "due to scheduling conflicts," according to a Live Nation press release. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. The writing was on the blogspot, with the Toronto rapper taking to his October's Very Own blog to explain both pushing back "Take Care," his sophomore album (from his 25th birthday, Oct. 24 to Nov. 15 due to sample-clearance issues) and postponing the subsequent Club Paradise tour (it will now take place in early 2012, so "students are back from the Christmas/New Year break")
