Today, we get a straight-up answer from Meek in his new Fader cover story: they're not actually engaged.

Yesterday, Kanye West tweeted, and as usual, the Internet crumbled to shreds. Last month, Kanye tweeted a picture (of what looked like an album cover) with the words: So Help Me God. Rather than a cry for help, we took 'Ye's words to be the title of his upcoming album, which he plans to release this year--of course, he won't tell us when.

Nicki Minaj Felt Disrespected By Tyga Over "Truffle Butter" Leak, Is Banking On Lil Wayne & Birdman Working Things Out Mar 5, 2015 at 03:00pm 102,550 Views
There's a whole lot of drama going on at Cash Money these days, but for the most part, there's only a couple of major figures we've heard from directly. Lil Wayne and Tyga have made their feelings clear, but artists like Nicki Minaj and Drake have been less clear about taking sides (though conspiracy theories suggest Drizzy's whole new tape could be read as a middle finger to Birdman).
DJ Drama was the latest guest on Power 105's The Breakfast Club, and while there he discussed the BET Awards show fights, his own album Quality Street Music, as well as Lil Wayne's Dedication 4.As many people were far from impressed by Weezy's D4, The Breakfast Club brought up these criticisms with Drama.
Big Sean addressed the current beef between Lil Wayne and Pusha T in a recent interview with Wired 96.5. He says he doesn't approve of beef, "I think beef is weak. Crack is wack.

We got families to take care of, we got moms to take care of.
Rich Homie Quan told us on his first mixtape, in 2012, I Go In On Every Song. Next came Still Goin' In and Still Goin' In (Reloaded). Then, after releasing a joint tape with Gucci, Quan made his message clearer than ever with I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In.
During the making of Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late (which just surpassed J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive in sales, by the way), his friend Travis Savoury was locked up on human trafficking charges.
With yesterday's remix of Fetty Wap's "My Way," we're getting that feeling that this summer's gonna be Drizzy season yet again. Drizzy had the most successful 2014 of anyone who didn't put out an album, and he did it by dropping impromptu remixes on the ever-fashionable OVO soundcloud.
Among all the stealthy disses on Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late, the one on "Used To" aimed at Diddy ("Real quick, man, you couldn't have hated that / Let's be real, nigga, you couldn't have made it that") was the most timely, coming mere weeks after the mogul allegedly slapped him over a Boi-1da beat.

The YMCMB head Honcho also took the time to honor the memory of the late, great Whitney Houston, who passed away earlier that night, and to take jabs at Jay-Z and Kanye West.
It looks like these two have put their r'n'beef behind them, and decided to combine their talents during a recent studio session. As you likely know, Chris Brown and Drake first started beefing after a fight at a night club, which was allegedly over their shared lady, Rihanna. Things escalated quickly, including multiple lawsuits against each other and plenty of rumors publicized by the media.

After years of embarking on a grueling journey to stardom, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock finally made it. They came up from nothing and are now swimming in the pools of success. Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q both stunned with their respective albums and have forged lanes of their own as Cali's most talented artists.
Chief Keef and Lil Durk were two of the most prominent rappers in the drill scene when it first started to get some coverage a few years back.
Anticipation was high for Drake's "Would You Like A Tour," but it seemed as though things might get off to a rocky start with alleged tension between Drake and Future. Whether or not the two are on good terms, they certainly made it seem that way, with Drizzy bringing Future out for three songs during his own headlining set, serving as a hypeman for the "Honest" rapper.
