Well…it’s summer 16 and while we haven’t heard much from Drake thus far, we have heard an awful lot about him, thanks to fellow emcee Joe Budden. Six days ago the Slaughterhouse rapper shook up the industry with his Drake diss entitled “Making A Murderer.”
With no reply from Drake and the days passing by, Joey decided to go back 2 back on Drizzy and drop some more ether.
His latest dagger is called “Wake” and it is a continuation of heavy heated bars aimed at the Toronto rapper.
Now that Joey has pushed Drizzy from the offense to the defense, let’s see what kind of response, if any, we will get from Drake.
Things are about to get very interesting…all summer 16.
After the fallout within Cash Money Records towards the end of 2014, Hip Hop heads haven’t known what to expect from the collective since. However, one thing hasn’t change and that is the fact that Cash Money/Young Money still puts out great music. One look at Billboard’s charts will provide you the evidence. Now that Drizzy season is amongst us and the release of his Views album has already topped charts, Hip Hop heads are now waiting for the moment to see the squad team up for some new collabs. Ladies and gentlemen, that moment is here…
Below you can find the official remix to Drake’s “Hype.” The original single is a standout track from his already platinum Views album. The new remix features Lil Wayne and with that being said, it is straight heat.
Just a few days ago October’s Very Own, Drake, released his highly anticipated album Views. Last night while at a Views listening party in Toronto, Drake boasted to the crowd that he sold around 630,000 copies of his new album in one night. You can hear him in the clip above.
If comparing Drake’s album, What a Time to Be Alive sold 375,000 first week and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late moved 535,000 units in a three day span.
Views will surely debut at No. 1 next week and mostly likely hit platinum status soon after. The “One Dance” single is already crushing records on the U.K. charts and has quickly become Drake’s first No. 1 hit on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100. Only time will tell what heights this album will take the Toronto native. One thing is for sure, over 600,000 copies sold in one night is phenomenal and once the album hits Spotify, the insane numbers of streaming will continue to soar. The question I have for you is, “Where does Views fall in comparison to Drakes previous releases?”
Is this Drake’s best work to date? Let us know by commenting below.
It’s been two years since Drake has dropped a formal album, but today that has all changed. Right now you can stream Drake’s new album Views aka the album formerly known as Views From The 6 onApple Music or by clicking here. Check out the tracklist below to help you along the way.
The tracklist does not mention any features, however Drizzy revealed on his Instagram that Future, Rihanna, Pimp C, PARTYNEXTDOOR, DVSN, WizKid and Popcaan are featured on the album. With that being said, it looks like the Jay Z and Kanye version of “Pop Style” did not make the final cut.
Drake’s Views From The 6 is set to drop this month, so with that being said, it appears that Drizzy season is finally upon us. Today Drake officially kicked off the highly anticipated season with the release of two brand new singles. The first track is titled “Pop Style” and features Jay Z and Kanye West aka ‘The Throne’ and the other features WizKid and Kyla called “One Dance.”
The songs aren’t streaming just yet on Apple Music, but you can preview “Pop Style” here, and “One Dance” here.
Last weekend, Drake revealed his plans to release his fourth LP, Views From the 6, in April. Drake also blessed us with a new track, “Summer Sixteen,” in which he continues to walk all over Meek Mill and fire some warning shots at Toronto R&B artist Tory Lanez. The verdict still isn’t in yet on whether or not the Noah “40” Shebib and Boi-1da-produced cut will make the highly anticipated album, but what we do know is this single is the highest debut of Drake’s career.
The new track is already one of the biggest hits of Drake’s career and his highest debut since 2011’s “Take Care” duet with Rihanna. Stream “Summer Sixteen” below and keep one eye open for the premiere of Drake & Rihanna’s “Work” video.
Right back to work since the release of “Don’t Waste My Time” featuring Young Thug, R&B singer Keyshia Cole puts her twist on Drake’s hit “Hotline Bling”. On this new track by Keyshia she details the relationship she previously had with a cheating man.
Cole goes in on her take of “Hotline Bling”. The Bay Area-native sings, “Ever since I left the crib you, started feeling sorry for yourself now, it’s crazy how you had me feeling left out and everybody knows you left me stressed out.” Cole continues, “And ever since I left the crib you, started caring less and going out more. Hanging with these broads all on the dancefloor. Chilling with these girls I never seen before. You used to call her on her cellphone.”
Did Keyshia just crush that? Take a listen and let us know by commenting below.
50 Cent believes that Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj share the same exact opinions when it comes to Drake. Nicki hasn’t responded yet to the beef between Meek and Drake and it feels somewhat odd to 50.
“I think it’s really a Nicki [and] Drake thing going on,” 50 Cent says during an interview with St. Louis’ 104.1 FM. “I would think that he would be conscious of Nicki before he would just say something, when he knows Nicki and Drake have a relationship. Like, they’re down with each other. They’re in the same crew. Even if you just heard it randomly you would be talking to her before you say something publicly about it. Obviously she shares the same views, because she hasn’t really responded to it publicly.”
During the St. Louis 104.1 FM interview, 50 Cent spoke on his use of ghostwriters.
“I wrote everything,” 50 says. “One time I took a line [on] ‘Straight To The Bank.’ Because Kanye [did the chorus], while we were just chilling in the studio he said that. And then I copied the sound that he did—but we in the room, we playing around, we writing. That’s different to somebody writing your song.”
Deeper into the conversation, Fif also spoke about the beef between Wayne and Birdman.
“It just got crazier than I even imagined it could possibly be between the two of them,” 50 says. “They were like father and son relationship… I couldn’t see them actually trying to kill him. The stuff that I hear [going on with Young Thug], I don’t believe that. I can’t believe that he would actually want to kill him.”
50 also spoke on the beef between Ghostface Killah and Action Bronson.
“I don’t know why he said that stuff, man,” 50 Cent says. “I think Ghost gon’ catch him. I won’t lie, I really think he gon’ catch that kid.”
Aside from all the back and forth “he said, he said” beef, Drake finds his way to a visual thanks to his Compton comrade The Game. Game’s first single off his forthcoming TheDocumentary 2 album features the OVO chief and is titled “100“. The video is directed by Drake‘s personal tour photographer, Theo Skudra.
The “100” track is a salute to true friendship and it’s visual depicts that as you can catch Game and Drizzy take it to the streets of Compton where they find nothing but love. “100” marks the first time that Game and Drake have collaborated since 2011. This is perfect timing for the release of this video with all the drama that is surrounding Drake. Peep the new video below and be sure to always keep it 100!
