Was anyone really in tune with the whole Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, and Drake situation going on? Well, it’s nothing necessarily really major but I’m very observant so I just always think about how certain things that are publicized make people feel. If you want to know what I’m referring to exactly, it is all over the media that Meek Mill has not only he been really lowkey lately but he won Best Rap Album of the year last night at the 2016 BillBoard Music Awards. Guess who he beat?

Meek mill beat Kendrick Lamar, Dre, Future, and **drumroll please** , Drake! I know I was a bit extra on announcing that but because Drake is such an emotional human being, I just wonder how he feels about that. I am very proud of Meek Mill and his win but I just can’t help but think how Drake feels about this.

Especially, after the beef and this diss tracks that were made back and forth, I know I am not the only one who is curious if Drake saw this coming? However, it’s really not about Drake, this is Meek Mill’s time to shine and it just proves that God will make your enemies your footstool. It may even happen sooner than you think!

I do not know if everyone agrees with the song, “Started from the bottom”, but wherever Drake started from, he is definitely here now! Drake just confirmed that his album “Views” has sold a million copies in one week. Have you bought yours yet?

This is good news for an artist considering the fact that it is very easy to download free music these days. Drake, often referred to as  the sentimental artist by many, never stops grinding and it clearly pays off. The album “Views” is a big milestone for him and I believe he is more than grateful for where life has taken him. Truth be told, many people make fun of how corny Drake can be at times, (including myself), but that doesn’t change the fact that he makes music that many people appreciate, can relate to and can vibe with.

I’ve heard different reviews about this latest album, saying that most of the songs are “slow”, but I’m pretty sure that this is the kind of music that Drake prefers to make. If you don’t like it then, that’s fine because as an artist once your following is built up and sturdy your creativity flourishes even more. When you make good music then that’s just what you do and Drake is continuously showing us that this is what he was made for.

Make sure you all get that album!

Drake has Released VIEWS Album

FullSizeRender (8)

After months of anticipation, Drake has dropped his 4th studio album entitled Views. The Canadian rapper has been teasing fans and music connoisseurs for quite some time about the album’s official title and release date.

 

Several weeks prior to the album’s release, Drake introduced fans to two singles from the album. The single entitled “Pop Style”, featuring Kanye West and Jay-Z, serves an eerie melody underlining the strong lyrical prowess of Jay-Z and Kanye who are rightfully credited on the song as “the throne.” While the second single “One Dance” featuring Wiz Kid provides the perfect afro-punk melody for approaching summer. These distinct singles left fans eager to lay ear to the album and the wait is finally over!

Rap has long been the one of the only forms where violence can come from the lyrics. With the genre being very individualist in nature, it creates a lot of competition. When Drake and Meek Mill went through their fight last summer, it made Quentin Miller an overnight celebrity.  READ MORE

Rihanna Feat. Drake – Work (Teaser)

 

They may be over but Rihanna and Drake can still work the dance floor.

The two played up their chemistry, with the Barbadian singer twerking on her ex-boyfriend in a teaser released for the “Work”music video on Friday.

The singers have never confirmed any on-off romance but were spotted packing on the PDA throughout 2014 and were first linked together years ago, during RiRi’s back and forth relationship with Chris Brown.

Still, there seems to be no hard feelings over the split as the two collaborated on the hit track and got steamy with each other in the video snippet.

With Super Bowl 50 this Sunday, the commercials that air during the game have become just as big as the game itself. Who would have thought? Now Toronto’s greatest export will be part of the onslaught of commercials with his new spot with T-Mobile. We will say this one commercial is already the front-runner to be the best of the night.

Looks like the Drake vs. Meek Mill rap beef has spilled over into 2016. Drizzy unleashed a new track dissing Meek Mill (and a few others) and the Philly rapper quickly responded. Now, there are conspiracy theories surrounding the YoungMoney rapper and his alleged “ghost writing.” Find out what we mean inside…

Drake is looking for “revenge” and he did so by dropping his new single “Summer Sixteen” on OVO Radio yesterday. It’s the first single from his upcoming Views In The 6 LP, set to drop in April.

On the new track, the Young Money rapper takes aim at a few folks including fellow Canadian rapper Tory Lanez (“All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little”). After President Barack Obama said he would choose KendrickLamar over Drizzy in a rap battle, Drake had a response to that rapping, “Tell Obama that my verses is just like the whips that he in / The bullet proof” And he also name drops a few Hip Hop powerhouses such as Jay Z and KanyeWest.

But, things get interesting when Drake comes for his enemy Meek Mill. As you all by know, Drake and Meek started a legendary rap back last summer after the MMG rapper blasted Drizzy for ghostwriting his lyrics on his track “R.I.C.O.” Since then, Drake dropped two records (“Charged Up & “Back to Back), straight bodying Meek. The Philly rapper tried to come back at Drake on his track “Wanna Know,” but by the time he dropped it, most people were over it.

Fast forward to now, the guys are back at it with Drake dropping “Summer Sixteen” and Meek releasing his response “War Pain,” about an hour after. And their tracks have some folks coming up with their own conspiracy theories.

On Drizzy’s new track, he suggests that he and Meek (along with Nicki Minaj) were in the same hotel when he unleashed “Back to Back.” Rumor has it, once Drake found out which hotel Meek and Nicki were staying at (when they made a stop in Toronto on the Pinkprint Tour), he and his homies went and got a room right above Meek & Nicki and BLASTED the track all night.

Drake rapped: “I’m just a sicko a real sicko when you get to know me, n*gga / I let the diss record drop you were standing right below me, nigga / We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed.”

In the beginning of Meek’s “War Pain” track, he too, addresses that night at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. He raps:“Location: Toronto. Status: five star hotel, Four Seasons. Them chumps right upstairs, they know not to come up here playin’ no real niggas. Mu, I’m still up countin’ five hundred thousand cash. Nicki in the bedroom sleep, life is good”

Then things get even more interesting….

Meek directly addresses many of Drake’s lyrics from his track. Check it:

Drake: “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella, then I turned into Jay / Now I got a house in LA / Now I got a bigger pool than Ye / and look man, Ye’s pool is nice / Mine’s just big is what I’m saying.”

Meek: “And you claimin’ you HOV now? Why you state that shit?/ I hate that shit/Niggas be talking out they face but soon as you body something they be singing like they Drak”

Drake: “Then I hit ‘em with the Hotline, Chris Breezy with the dance moves.”

Meek: “Niggas dancing like they fruit cakes/Hotline Bling, don’t get no bing up in this new Wraith.”

Meek is saying Drizzy’s alleged ghostwriter tipped him off with the lyrics:

Now look, Drake dropped his track around 6PM EST yesterday and then Meek dropped his about an hour later.

Hmmm…One could say, Meek hopped in the studio and threw in a few lyrics to directly respond to Drizzy, but he was at the Sixers vs. Warriors game in Philly with his girlfriend Nicki Minaj when “War Pain” dropped. Here are the receipts:

Unbothered.  Chick pulled out her pink bedazzled mirror to check her make up. Ha!

The timing of it all is very interesting to say the least.

Rihanna even joined in and showed her support for Drake, who is featured on her new track “Work” from her recently released ANTI album.

So, we have to ask…what’s really good with Drake and these alleged ghost writing rumors? How did Meek release his diss track so quickly after Drake dropped his? Is there a mole in the OVO camp? So many questions, not enough answers….
