It's now been eight days since Drake blessed us with If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and now the freestyles are rolling in. One of the first comes from Rostrum Records' Boaz, and we're excited to premiere his take on "10 Bands." It also features Cook Tha Monster & Ghazi.
Lil Wayne just dropped off his Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape moments ago, and as expected, it finds Tune going over some of last year’s hottest instrumentals, including “Coco”, “No Type”, “Try Me”, and even Shmurda’s “Hot N*gga”.
Disappointingly, the vast majority of hip-hop "remixes" these days consist of rappers dropping bars over already-existing instrumentals. No matter how many people hopped on Bobby Shmurda's "Hot Nigga," no MCs or producers even tweaked Jahlil's beat a bit.
Drake blessed OVO signee OB OBrien's remix of Tinashe's "2 On" earlier this year, and he appears once again on the aspiring rapper's brand new track, "Shemin Up". Adding both some verses and a hook to the record, Drizzy's presence is pretty big on this one.
Tomorrow, Jordin Sparks will be releasing a new tape entitled #BYEFELICIA (just the latest use of that phrase from the film "Friday" that seems to be taking on a new life in 2014). Today, she's teamed up with the L.A.
Recently, it was announced that Cash Money veteran Juvenile was rejoining the label to stage a comeback. Birdman said that his upcoming album would be executive produced by London On The Track, and now it looks like we've gotten the first track from that, albeit shared under the "Rich Gang" name.
Future and Drake's "Never Satisfied" was one of the most peculiar songs to end up on a major album this year -- not because of any sonic weirdness, but because it seemed to be abruptly, inexplicably shortened. Now, the song's producer, Mike WiLL Made It, has shared the full version.
Nicki Minaj teased us with the cartoonified cover art for her new single "Only" on the weekend, featuring an all-star line-up of Lil Wayne, Drake and Chris Brown. Today we get the new single which was premiered on iHeart Radio. It's a definite radio-friendly banger, although, it's the clean version for now.
Last but not least, we get the official version of "How Bout Now", a record that leaked about a week back. This is the third of three records Drizzy shared on his soundcloud today, following "6 God" and "Heat Of The Moment".
Drake has given us three new tracks out of the blue to celebrate October. This one is a song that's been rumored for some time. It's produced by Drizzy's go-to producer, 40. The song is certainly more on the R&B side of things, something we haven't heard in a minute.
The last we heard a solo cut from Drizzy was back in June when he went from 0 to 100 real quick over an iconic instrumental from Boi-1da, 40, and Nineteen85. Today, YMCMB's golden child returns with "How About Now," a fresh drop uncovered by those computer savvy hip-hop heads over at Reddit.
On paper, ATLien iLoveMakonnen would seem to be the exact type of "weirdo" that Troy Ave has been known to lambast in the media, but whether due to a change of heart, an ability to overlook personal holdups in favor of great music, or an innate desire to follow Drake wherever he may go (practically part of the job
Well here’s something we didn’t see coming. California artist The K.I.D. Heat & Mally Mall recruit some big named features from the YMCMB family, including Drake & Tyga, for this new banger titled “Whatcha Say”.
