If you're a rap fan, there's no way you're not familiar with Metro Boomin's latest producer tag, "If Young Metro don't trust you they gon' shoot you," which has appeared both on Future and Drake's "Jumpman," and -- even more prominently -- on Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1". If you're a big enough Future fan, you'll know that the phrase was first uttered on Uncle Murda's "Right Now," which featured Future, but according to Metro, who discussed it with DJ Drama recently, the vocal he isolated didn't actually appear on the track.

Quentin Miller was thrusted into the rap limelight this past summer, when his name was dragged into the now-infamous Meek Mill and Drake ghostwriting beef. It happened to jump-start his personal rap career, though (perhaps to the ire of those he'd previously been ghostwriting for), and he's since released&nb

Ranking Lil Wayne's 13 Mixtapes From Worst To Best Apr 7, 2015 at 12:30pm
Lil Wayne didn't get the nickname "Mixtape Weezy" for nothing. Over the course of hip-hop history, very few artists have used the art of the mixtape to their advantage as well as Weezy F. It's helped to blow up the likes of Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky and even Drake over the past decade, but Wayne's 13 mixtapes came when he was already a star. He didn't need the tapes to become a star, but they certainly propelled him in to GOAT territory by simply crushing the output of his competitors.
