Drake Buries Meek Mill With “Back To Back” Freestyle

Several days have passed since Drake responded to Meek Mill‘s claims of hiring ghostwriters with his chill, yet vicious “Charged Up” freestyle. You may have thought Meek would have responded by now, and if that’s the case you are not alone. Everyone was expecting the Maybach Music Group member to retaliate to Drake’s line, which he himself called “Baby lotion soft” over Twitter, but here we are at 9:30 AM on Wednesday and Meek remains silent.

Drake, on the other hand, has something more to say.

Raising the bar to a height I’m not sure Meek Mill has ever …

Watch Nicki Minaj’s Short Film ‘The Pinkprint Movie’

Rap got a handful when Nicki Minaj entered the scene, and she hasn’t slowed down in the slightest since first making a roar. After dropping her newest LP, The Pinkprintthis week (that’s well worth giving a full listen through), Minaj is back with a brand new short film to accompany many of the album’s sodden numbers. The film, The Pinkprint Movie, is currently streaming on YouTube in its entirety.

The visual companion piece to her album clocks in at 16 minutes. Directed by Taylor Cohen and Francesco Carrozzini, it follows Minaj through a series of heartbreaks and …

Madonna Rebel Heart

Madonna Announces New Album ‘Rebel Heart’ Feat. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Diplo

When Madonna‘s demos leaked earlier this week, she was rightfully devastated. The pop icon called it an “artistic rape” and a “form of terrorism,” but now she’s fighting back by announcing the album officially and dropping six tracks to stream.

Her new album, titled Rebel Heart, drops March 10 via Interscope and sees help from Kanye West, Diplo, and Nicki Minaj (who hops on the fiercely titled “Bitch I’m Madonna”). Supposedly, Madonna also worked with Sophie, Blood Diamonds, DJ Dahi, and maybe even Ariel Pink. More of the album’s songs will be out on February 9.

REVIEW: Nicki Minaj – ‘The Pinkprint’

Artist: Nicki Minaj
Album: The Pinkprint
Genre: Hip-Hop
Label: Young Money

Whenever new material from Nicki Minaj arrives online people are quick to ask whether the pop star’s delivery falls under the category of ‘radio’ or ‘mixtape’ Minaj. The former is typically viewed a hook-heavy club offering, while the latter tends to refer to tracks where Minaj drops all pop sensibility in preference of her hip-hop roots. The Pinkprint is a perfect combination of both, though I would argue that it offers the least radio ready collection of tracks Nicki has shared with fans to date. That’s not a complaint, …

Hear Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé on “Feelin’ Myself”

Earlier this year, Beyoncé brought Nicki Minaj onboard for an intense remix of “Flawless” in the way that the quick spitter can make possible. Now, Minaj has shared a brand new single featuring Queen B called “Feelin’ Myself” off her upcoming studio album, The Pinkprint, out December 16 via Young Money, and it gets a little grittier.

Produced by Hit-Boy, “Feelin’ Myself” is a glitchy beat that saunters in low tones, remaining relatively dark throughout until Beyonce’s bright vocals lighten things up. There’s no beef here. Instead, the two divas take it slow, letting their lines speak for themselves …

Rae-Sremmurd

Rae Sremmurd, Nicki Minaj, & Young Thug Drop “Throw Sum Mo”

The two biggest acts of 2014 have joined forces with the queen of hip-hop to deliver a new hard-hitting track that further cements Rae Sremmurd‘s place in pop culture.

Serving as the third single from the duo’s upcoming debut album, SremmLife, “Throw Some Mo” is a crazy single that features appearances from Nicki Minaj and Young Thug. It’s not the club banger you may be expecting, but it does boast a high energy beat and lyrics relating to fat asses, cash, partying, and generally living the good life. You can stream the track below:…

Rae Sremmurd Streams “No Flex Zone” Remix Featuring Pusha T and Nicki Minaj

We could argue about who dominated the pop charts all summer long, but when it comes to hip-hop there is no question over who has been in control of the radio game during 2014′s hottest months.

Rae Sremmurd have risen from obscurity to international fame in about four months, and it’s thanks to the Mike Will Made It produced hit, “No Flex Zone.” The song first hit the net in May, and in the weeks following release it gained momentum in the media thanks to remixes by Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Juicy J, and more.
