Lil B has kept relatively quiet since teaming up with Chance The Rapper for a collection of songs, Free Based Freestyles, however he made a return this holiday season, with an feature on Gucci Mane's "Embarrassed" alongside Post Malone and Riff Raff. Today the Bay Area rapper makes his second appearance on the site this week, with a freestyle over Drake and Future's "Jumpman" instrumental, turning his own n
Where Ya At
As you probably saw on the 24-song tracklist, Weezy isn't shying away from tackling several WATTBA tracks, as well as a few individual Drake and Future records.
Remember "R.I.C.O." -- the Dreams Worth Than Money single that fizzled soon after Meek Mill decided to reveal that Drake's verse on the track was actually written by a unknown rapper by the name of Quentin Miller? Well, the track has now been remixed by none other than Pusha T, who happens to have his own beef with Drake. The collab was just played on Dr.
Loving You No More
Diddy - Dirty Money Feat. Drake
Diddy is perhaps more esteemed as a businessman than he is as a musician, but he proved yesterday that, at the age of 46, he still understands how to make a hot record -- and that he knows how to keep the right company to help him do so. MMM was Diddy's first release since last summer's ill-advised 11 11, a collaborative album with house producer Guy Gerber. Before that, it was Last Train to Paris, which he, Dawn Richard, and Kalenna Harper, as Diddy - Dirty Money, released in 2010.
You knew OVO Sound Radio would come with some Halloween treats tonight, and, indeed, one of those included a surprise set from grime emcee Skepta, who dropped three new remixes during his mix. The most noteworthy is of the biggest track off What a Time to Be Alive, last month's joint album between Future and Drake, who recently tattooed the initials of Skepta's Boy Better Know crew on his left shoulder.
We've seen our fair share of "Jumpman" remixes, but wait -- there's one more y'all gotta hear. It comes from Chicago upstart Ty Money, whose name you'll be seeing plenty in the near future. The song lends an immediate triple time tempo and some easy source material for Ty to begin his lyrical attack.
30 For 30 Freestyle
After giving fans the Fallin Up Mix two months ago, Kirko Bangz returns today with a freestyle over Drake's solo cut from What A Time To Be Alive, the "30 For 30" freestyle.
Dreezy is one of many talented female Chicago rappers, including Tink and and W.W.A. (the 4-woman group that includes Sasha Go Hard and Katie Got Bandz). She gained attention with her latest EP, Call It What You Want, which featured K Camp and production from Southside. For her latest release, she's decided to remix the biggest tune off Drake and Future's What a Time to Be Alive.
Drake Feat. Beyoncé
Last week's episode of OVO Sound Radio, episode 6, was the biggest yet, as Drake premiered his joint album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive. Drake isn't in the booth tonight (Oct. 3), but episode 7 is shaping up to be pretty interesting.
Hotline Bling (Remix)
We've seen all sorts of "Hotline Bling" covers and remixes, but this one's actually worth a listen, as it comes from the legend Erykah Badu. Ms. Badu reworks the production using live instruments, while still keeping the bouncy goodness of the original. She basically keeps the theme of Drake's original, but switches the gender roles. Her remix runs for over 7 minutes and gets deeper and weirder as she goes. There's a genius recording of Badu's voicemail message about 4 minutes in.
Before Drake fucked up the game and live streamed What a Time to Be Alive, he played out a short mix, which included tracks from lesser-knowns such as Kodak Black and the UK group Section Boyz, as well as a couple of exclusives. The biggest non-WATTBA track played during tonight's special episode of OVO Sound Radio has to be PartyNextDoor's "Blasé" remix.
Wack 2 Wack (Drake Diss)
Sauca Walka is coming at Drake's neck, over Drake's own beat. The Houston rapper, of "2 Legited 2 Quited" fame, previously came at Drake during Houston Appreciation Weekend, when several H-Town locals were a disappointed by the lack of Houston natives represented in the HAW festivities.
Tell Your Friends (Remix)
We've got new Drake, and of course, it came via OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1. OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib took the decks and dropped a Drizzy remix of The Weeknd's Kanye West-produced hit "Tell Your Friends," off Beauty Behind the Madness.
"R.I.C.O." is now forever tied to Drake and Meek Mill's beef, to the point that listening to the original version feels almost awkward. Thankfully, we now have a new take on the skittering beat to listen to, courtesy of the recently lyrics-focused Waka Flocka.
Back To Back (Meek Diss)
If “Charged Up” wasn’t enough to stir the pot, Drake decides to go “Back to Back” on us and deliver his second Meek Mill diss in the past week! Picking up the tempo and bars, Drake takes aim at Meek once again, sending some not so subliminal shots at the MMG rapper this time around. Calling him out for his lack of response “I did another one, I did another one / You still ain’t did shit about the other one,” & "I waited four days nigga, where y'all at?", the OVO rapper had a lot to get off his chest.
These days there isn't really a stronger co-sign than Drake, and Amir Obè is one of the lucky few who's earned it. While he hasn't been graced with a verse the way Fetty Wap and Makonnen have, he got the nect best thing when Drizzy premiered his record, "Just Know," on OVO Radio this weekend.
Hotline Bling (Cha Cha Remix) (CDQ)
Drake teased his remix to D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha" a while back, and when he finally unveiled his completely reworked version of the track, "Hotline Bling," it definitely lived up to expectations. Today, he's delivered the official CDQ version of the record on the OVO SoundCloud.
Right Hand (CDQ)
Drake shut the internet down (as he tends to do) over the weekend when he dropped three new songs on OVO Radio. Since then, we've been working with the censored versions of the tracks, but Drizzy has come through with the official CDQ versions of the songs we've all been waiting for. "Right Hand" was the most immediate banger of the bunch, landing somewhere between grime and DJ Mustard, as Drizzy skirts the line between singing and rapping. Which of the new tracks is your favorite so far?
Charged Up (CDQ)
The Drake-Meek Mill ghostwriting beef has taken the hip hop community by storm, and after Drake dropped Meek Mill diss track "Charged Up" yesterday and Meek fired back during his Pinkprint Tour set today, it only appears to be escalating. The CDQ of "Charged Up" is at last available, allowing us to listen to the disrespect in high definition.
Drake, Shebib, and Oliver put on a stellar first episode of OVO Sound Radio, but the second episode has been even better. OVO Sound Radio is a must listen at this point. After dropping a PND X Travi$ Scott joint, Drake's remix of D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha" and his Meek Mill diss track "Charged Up," they share a third Drake track called "Right Hand."
