- In one of the worst-kept secrets of the last few months, Wale is now a part of the Rick Ross-led Maybach Music Group. According to his Twitter, Wale's management contract with Jay-Z's Roc Nation group remains in tact. No word on when we can expect the follow-up to last year's "Attention Deficit."

- Guitarist Gary Moore, best known for his stints with Irish hard rockers Thin Lizzy died over the weekend at the age of 58. Moore toured with the band off-and-on in the '70s and played on their 1979 album "Black Rose: A Rock Legend." He also released 20 solo albums.

- LCD Soundsystem is sticking to its promise and calling it quits. The last chance to catch one of the world's best bands is April 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
