This week, Beyoncé dropped an album (with an accompanying video for every song) out of nowhere. But it may very well be remembered as the time a phone call from Wale briefly took attention away from King B's big surprise.
A lot of big music releases happened this week, actually. Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes released their golden age wet dream album, R. Kelly dropped Black Panties, and Snoop Dogg, aka Snoop Lion and, now, Snoopzilla's Stones Throw project with Dam-Funk 7 Days of Funk came out, too.
South Park grasped at the low-hanging fruit that is making fun of Kanye West. While taking on the brutal beauty standards young women face, the show's writers asserted that Yeezy's wife-to-be Kim Kardashian is a hobbit. It was, perhaps, even less funny than Jimmy Kimmel's leather jogging pants jokes.
