    Were it not for Drake's "Tuesday" remix, the majority of rap listeners still probably wouldn't know who iLoveMakonnen is.

Someone's just dug up some tweets of his, the oldest of which dates back to 2010, that take some shots at Drizzy. View them in the gallery above.

    Though his music tends to be getting more triumphant and aggressive as he goes, Drake just can't seem to shed the joke that he's hyper-sensitive. While seemingly visiting his family in Toronto for Christmas dinner, Drizzy decided to get a hot take from his mom on why people seem to think he's always crying and feeling sorry for himself. "It's not that you cry at all," Sandi Graham said in a video that made it's way to Champagne Papi's Instagram. "I've never seen you cry on stage or even when the two of us are just together."

    After a few listens to Nicki Minaj's latest album, The Pinkprint, it is pretty clear that, to a certain extent, she does pay attention to critics. Her last album, 2012's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was universally panned in reviews for being disjointed, gimmicky and lackluster, among other things. There aren’t many traces of the over-the-top theatrics that were sprinkled all throughout her sophomore set on her latest offering.

    The remix. It can mean a lot of things. Today it usually means a trap or house DJ took a tune and chopped it up for the dance-floor, but there was a time in hip-hop where the remix was an opportunity to invite old friends and make new ones over a celebrated beat.

    Los Angeles-based Shlohmo, real name Henry Laufer, started making beats like most bedroom producers. Influenced by the infamous LA beat scene, his early music resembled the experimental Low End Theory style. In the last couple years however, Laufer has found a niche in the electronic music culture by making some of the sexiest remixes around. After reworking the likes of Drake, The Weekend, Aaliyah, Haerts, Burial and more, he's since linked up with R&B stars like Jeremih and Banks to create some forward-thinking, original R&B music that challenges anything else in the scene.
