Joe Budden Explains Why He Dissed Drake
Most of you are aware of the recent tiff between Joe Budden & Drake by now, but for those of you who don’t let’s bring you up to speed right quick.

Then days later, a snippet surfaced online of Drake & French Montana in the studio working on what we now know is the song “No Shopping,” and the opening line of “Pump, pump it up” which people thought was a jab at Joey.

Tyga "1 Of 1" Video
A couple of weeks after sharing his new dancehall-inspired summer single, Tyga has dropped off the "1 of 1" video, which takes place in Kingston, Jamaica.
