Drake Releases Three New Songs, For Free, Without Warning

The don’t call him October’s Very Own for nothing.

Drake has a long history of surprising fans and critics with new material when they least expect it, and earlier today – October 25 – he caught us off guard once again with the surprise release of three brand new tracks. One of them, “How Bout Now,” leaked online earlier this week, but the other two have never even been teased prior to hitting the net this afternoon. “6 God” is probably the catchiest of the bunch, but all three are worth your time and hard drive space.

Dissecting “How About Now” And The World’s Ongoing Obsession With Drake

On Sunday night, something incredibly unexpected happened for the second time in two months: A track rumored to be off Drake’s upcoming album Views From The 6 found its way online through a source other than the rapper and his management team.

The song, titled “How About Now,” was first uploaded to the internet by a 17-year-old fan from Georgia, and as far as I’ve found, no explanation for how he came to be in possession of the unreleased material has surfaced, aside from a comment that it was an “exclusive leak.” It doesn’t really matter …

New Drake Track “How About Now” Hits The Net

Drizzy Drake is either trying a strange new form of viral promotion or he really needs to get a handle on who has control of his unreleased music because a new song hit the web without warning today and it’s quickly taking the net by storm.

“How About Now” found its way online shortly after noon on Sunday, October 19. The track was originally posted on Soundcloud by a 19-year-old fan from Georgia that has yet to reveal how they came to have the track in their possession. The song has since been removed from that page, but it lives …

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.
