Dumb Rapper Ruins His Career By Leaking Drake’s New Single With His Own Verse On It

Unsigned rappers are thirsty fools, and every so often one of them decides to do something so ridiculous it demands our attention, if only to prevent others from doing the same stupid thing.

A relatively unknown rapper by the name of Erik Battle was given a copy an unfinished copy of Drake‘s latest, unreleased single in recent weeks. Instead of keeping the track to himself, like any intelligent person would do, Erik decided to record his own verse and add it to the track. To make matters worse, he then uploaded the track to the internet without permission from …

Nicki Minaj Releases “Anaconda” Video, Puts Miley To Shame

Move over Ms. Cyrus, there is another pop queen who wants a little time in the controversy spotlight.

Nicki Minaj has never been one to shy away from her sexuality, and it she made it clear she was holding no punches when she revealed the cover art to her latest single, “Anaconda,” a few weeks back. The song’s debut made that even more evident, with talk of sexual exploits, past lovers, and plenty of ass love. It was everything you expected, yet somehow more.

Today, Nicki released the video for “Anaconda,” and it’s chock full of things that …

Trinidad Jame$ Shares “Hating On Me” Featuring iLoveMakonnen

What we have here is a track that is bound to get far more attention because it was released this week instead of last, and I’ll tell you why: Drake.

Last week, iLoveMakonnen went from being a relatively unknown musician on the international scene to appearing on every major urban music blog after October’s Very Own, the one and only Drake, made an appearance on the young crooner’s “Tuesday.” I won’t say that his latest track is better than that single, but it certainly offers us another reason to keep iLoveMakonnen on our radar a little while longer.

As for the album, it’s coming in “most likely September.”

MUSIC VIDEO: YG – “Bicken Back Being Bool”

Elevating himself from the streets of Compton Bompton to the national spotlight, YG has been on quite a tear in 2014. With the release of his game-changing AOTY contender, My Krazy Life, alongside selling out venue after venue from coast to coast on an album-supporting tour, he’s managed to grab the respect of fans and critics alike. As seen in the brand new music video for the DJ Mustard produced cut “Bicken Back Being Bool,” though, it’s obvious YG hasn’t forgotten his roots.

Combining his modern take on the West Coast’s classic sound with visuals straight out of a …

Drake teased a new album about a month ago, and earlier today Billboard confirmed Aubrey’s plans to release his fourth studio album early next year.

Views From The 6 will be the title of Drake’s new album, but truth be told the Canada born rapper has admittedly not begun working on the record in earnest. The reveal of the album’s title and the confirmation of its impending release was announced on Tuesday morning as part of a slew of projects the twenty-something music mogul has on his plate, including his upcoming role as host of the ESPY’s, the two releases …

OVO producer / songwriter PARTYNEXTDOOR is gearing up to release his latest album later this month, and less than two hours ago he took to Soundcloud to share a brand new track featuring the one and only Drake.

When you want to generate hype for your next release it’s hard to land a bigger collaboration than Drake, and it certainly helps when he’s essentially your boss. That said, PARTYNEXTDOOR is front and center on this track from beginning to end. Where many Drake guest spots quickly become a Drake track featuring someone with enough money to hire Drake, “Recognize” …

Meek Mill Releases “0 To 100″ Remix

Meek Mill is the latest artist to make “0 To 100″ his own, and you better believe his take on Drake‘s new single does not disappoint.

It’s hard to know where to start when discussing Meek Mill. You can talk about his colorful wordplay, his love of telling stories through verse, or the fact that he continues to release new material while refusing to reveal a street date for his highly anticipated sophomore album. “0 To 100″ finds the Pennsylvania native touching on everything from life to music industry politics, making time along the way to touch on a …
