Spring is in full swing now that April is officially here (though someone might want to tell that to Mother Nature). And you know what April's showers bring? Music news! Oh, you thought we were gonna say flowers? It's too cold for all that, but we've got a fresh crop of stories on your faves. Down-ass chick Rihanna can't seem to stop her shine, amassing yet another major career milestone on her way to world domination. Safaree, meanwhile, isn't having so good of a week as gunmen relieved him of a few of his valuables. Speaking of getting your pockets ran, it looks like our boy DMX has to cough up a cool $2.3 million in his tax evasion case (and this is after being sentenced to a year in prison). Those stories plus the ongoing saga of Nas and Kelis' custody battles, a possible SZA and Missy Elliott collab, Juelz Santana's legal woes and more. Read on, why don't you?
