- As the world braces for next week’s arrival of “Lulu,” the new collabo album from Lou Reed and Metallica, the New York Times has a Q&A with Reed and Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. We’ve heard “Lulu” — and let’s just say our initial so-crazy-it-just-might-work hunches were not to be trusted. Check Tuesday’s Post for Allison Stewart’s review.

- ASAP Rocky — the sorta-okay Harlem rapper who consistently finds himself rapping amid pretty-great songs — tells Pitchfork he signed to Sony/RCA for a staggering $3 million. The only thing that could make this okay is if Clams Casino sweeps the Grammys in 2013.

- What's that Tony Lewis/Tony Jr. line in Wale’s recent single “Bait” all about? Read this fascinating Washington Post feature from 2010 by Theresa Vargas to find out. (We’ll have a review of Wale’s new album, “Ambition,” next week, too.)
