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.

We finally got to breathe a sigh of relief last week after the absolute onslaught of must-listen projects that arrived in the month prior. This calm will be short-lived, though, as we get Mac Miller's The Divine Feminine on Friday, Ty Dolla $ign's Campaign and Mick Jenkins' The Healing Component just a week later, Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition on the 30, and The Game's 1992 to kick off October.

Alexander Wang's 2016 #WangSquad features a who's who of rap and R&B artists, including ASAP Ferg, Tinashe, Metro Boomin, Vince Staples, Big Sean, Tyga, and Travis Scott, so it wasn't all that surprising to see some of those faces (and a few more) in attendance at the designer's New York Fashion Week show.

The week before Labor Day brought us some nice late summer treats in the form of Travis Scott's Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, Isaiah Rashad's The Sun's Tirade, and Fabolous' Summertime Shootout 2. Of those, Scott's album was definitely the most feverishly anticipated, thanks to some delays as well as his substantial fanbase, and that popularity shows in this week's edition of Top Tracks. Scott leads the pack with three appearances, but oddly enough, none as a lead artist.
The 5 Best Punchlines On Nicki Minaj's "The Pinkprint Freestyle"
Nicki Minaj broke a lengthy hiatus a week ago by showing up next to Ariana Grande in the outrageously sexy “Side to Side” video. But for those who forgot she’s still near the very top of the rap game, she showed up earlier today with her official return statement: "The Pinkprint Freestyle."

Meek Mill Trolls Fans With Photoshopped Pic Of Pregnant Nicki Minaj
We're not sure why, but Meek Mill decided to have some fun with Photoshop this weekend, pasting his girlfriend Nicki Minaj's face on the body of a pregnant woman, and tagging himself as the belly on Instagram. The caption reads: "Haters will say it's photoshopped," so it's clear Meek isn't trying to fool anyone here, and is more likely just having a laugh at the sporadic rumors that he and Nicki might be expecting.

Last week was a funny one for album delays. On one hand, Frank Ocean delivered not only his first, but also his second album since 2012's Channel Orange, but on the other, we didn't get the projects that we'd been expecting from French Montana, Young Thug, and Travis Scott.
Meek Mill & Nicki Minaj Lease Beverly Hills Home For $30K/Month

In terms of the calendar, summer is winding down, but someone forgot to tell that to the rap game. We've only seen things heat up in the past week, with SremmLife 2 providing more than enough turn up fuel for the next few weeks, and P3 reminding us to squeeze every last bit of fun out of summer flings before cuffing season arrives.

Both Party and Tory pop up in our Top Ten, although here it's obvious which one is dominant.

It's officially August, which means there's pretty much only one month of summer left. It's been a busy season for hip hop, as usual, with big projects from top-tier talents like Chance The Rapper, YG, ScHoolboy Q, and Gucci Mane dropping left and right, and plenty of additional tracks hitting the web as well.
