Summer '16 seemed to come and go without a good, entertaining beef, but in the week before the official Fall equinox, one has emerged. You could definitely deem the new Meek Mill Vs. The Game beef as a spinoff of Meek and Drake's last summer, but when it comes to bars, this beef's picking up the long-dormant one's slack. We've already got a diss apiece from both parities involved, and although Meek's came in too late on Sunday night to be counted in Top Tracks this week, Game's is in here, and you can be sure Meek's will be next week.

Lil Wayne's mission to get his rightful compensation from Birdman has taken on the feeling of a battle of wills, a war of attrition, a bitter struggle in which he'll need all the help he can get. TMZ reports that Wayne has found himself a powerful ally: James Prince, otherwise known as J. Prince, founder and CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records. Prince's son Jas Prince was the man who connected Drake with Young Money. The elder Prince told TMZ that he is willing to shoulder some of Wayne's burden and put pressure on Birdman to pay his estranged son.

Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V": A Refresher
Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V": A Refresher Sep 14, 2016 at 04:02pm
A new report has suggested that Lil Wayne is in sole possession of Tha Carter V masters, which he is withholding from his label, Cash Money, until they pay him what he is owed. It's the latest development in an ongoing battle between Wayne and Cash Money founder, Birdman, who Weezy has accused of holding out on payments (he's also far from the first to make such a claim). Above all else, it's got us thinking about what Tha Carter V actually SOUNDS like all over again.

Lil Wayne & Young Thug: A Complete History
Lil Wayne & Young Thug: A Complete History Sep 7, 2016 at 08:20pm
Young Thug has always cited Lil Wayne as his hero, but it hasn't stopped things from getting pretty weird between the two at times. Ever since Thug announced he was naming his album Tha Carter VI (later renamed Barter 6, but we'll get to that) and aligned himself with Birdman, there has been on-and-off tension between the two rappers. Things have certainly cooled down over the last little while, but it's been a wild ride, one that we've attempted to draw up in a timeline for you.

Are Lil Wayne & Mannie Fresh Working On An EDM Project? Sep 7, 2016 at 06:17pm
Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh have a rich collaborative history, but Cash Money drama meant they were separated for years. Now that Weezy has turned his back on Birdman, he and Mannie are one great terms once again, and on top of working on a few collaborative tracks over the last year or two, they're apparently in the midst of doing something completely different for them.
Meet Dreezy: The New Queen of Chicago's Southside & Beyond
Meet Dreezy: The New Queen of Chicago's Southside & Beyond Sep 6, 2016 at 02:44pm
In the sprawling Chicago hip hop scene of today, perhaps no rapper has more artistic range than 22-year-old Dreezy. She first began to grow a significant following after she released her incomparable "Chiraq" remix in spring 2014. It's hard to believe that that song, in which she snarls like a wolverine, was made by the same person who would release the gentle R&B-pop hybrid "Body" with Jeremih 21 months later.
