Last night, Meek Mill announced to the world that Drake's verse on their collaboration "R.I.C.O." was in fact written with the help of someone else. This isn't "news" per se, as Quentin Miller (the writer in question) appears in the song's credits, but Meek said he had only recently found out, or else he "woulda took it off my album."
The struggle is real. We've seen just about every celebrity, relevant and non-relevant, take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and go on to challenge their fellow celebrity friends to do the same. However, 50 Cent decided to stray from the pack and challenged his not-so friend Floyd Mayweather to read one page from a Harry Potter book without stopping and starting or fucking up.
It seems that hip-hop has moved on from Twitter beefs to the much more visual world of Instagram.

Chief Keef has had dialogues with pop stars before--you may remember his short-lived "beef" with Katy Perry earlier this year--but his exchange with Lady Gaga last night following her AMA interview was a much more positive, though no less hilarious encounter.
A scuffle involving both T.I. and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather broke out at a Fatburger in Las Vegas yesterday, and while we got a pretty in-depth recounting of the incident from Floyd, T.I. has been silent on the matter.

Yung Berg from Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood has been getting a lot of press lately. In the last month, he's been fired from the show, called out for owing over $86,000 in child support and arrested for attacking his girlfriend.

Recently we saw some behind-the-scenes photos for Chris Brown and Tyga's lead single from Fan of a Fan 2 The Album, and while we wait on the official music video to arrive, the two have revealed the cover art for the upcoming album plus a release date.

Kevin Gates recently dropped off By Any Means, a free album that was also available on iTunes and managed to debut at #17 on the Billboard 200. Gates is very open in his lyrics, and so if you are a fan you probably know quite a bit about his personal life just from listening to his music. Nonetheless, there is still some mystery surrounding Gates.
Mac Miller's third studio album, and his most anticipated yet, GO:OD AM, will be released on September 19, but thanks to the good folks at NPR, you can now stream the entire album five days ahead of schedule, as part of their "First Listen" album premiere series.
On 2009's "Successful," a young Drake rapped, "Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it," creating somewhat of a mission statement for his career from there on out. In a way, those words were accurate, as Drizzy rarely (if ever) calls out anyone by name in his music, but more accurately, he's become known as the king of the sneak diss, the sultan of the subliminal shot.
