Meek Mill's Verse Was Cut Off On His Own Song On OVO Sound Radio
Drake and Meek Mill still aren't on good terms, and while a Meek Mill song was technically played on Saturday night's episode of OVO Sound Radio, it hasn't exactly patched things up between the two. Early in Oliver El-Khatib's mix, Meek's DC4 highlight "Offended" began playing, surprising many fans, but following Young Thug's opening verse, just as Meek was about to enter, the song was cut and Drake's "Sneakin'" was played. It's possible this was all just a strange coincidence, but it was flagrant enough to get people talking on Twitter.

The Best Hip Hop Songs (On Spotify) Of October 2016
Earlier this year, HNHH launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now. The playlist is updated on a daily basis.

Meek Mill's "DC4" (Review)

Tory Lanez On "Litty": "I Can't Sound Like Somebody I Wrote For"
"Litty" is one of the most explosive tracks on Meek Mill's DC4, thanks in large part to a frantic auto-tuned chorus and verse from Tory Lanez.
