There’s no question that Memphis emcee Yo Gotti found himself with a jewel and one of the biggest rap hits of 2015. “Down in the DM” placed the underrated rapper in a new lane and has fans in anticipation of his new The Art of Hustle album, due to release on February 19th. While we wait on the album, Gotti has gifted us a remix to his banger featuring Hip Hop queenpin Nicki Minaj.
The duo goes in as expected and of course Nicki hits us with the jaw dropper Miley Cyrus reference. Be on the lookout for an official video to the track. For now, check out the new remix below.
If you don’t know who Adele is by now, it may be time to crawl from under that rock you’ve been living under for the past year. Last year, the British vocalist sold over 15 million copies worldwide of her latest album, 25, while taking the queen of the hill spot with a 7-week reign at number one. Adele’s “Hello” single leaped on to Billboard’s charts, ultimately ending Drake’s chances of getting his first-ever Billboard Hot 100 #1. Although, Adele is actually a fan of Drizzy’s. One could say she is even a fan of Hip Hop.
In the clip below Adele linked up with Carpool Karaoke host James Corden for some good laughs and karaoke singing. Watch as Adele flawlessly spits Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” verse toward the end of the clip.

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.”
Drake is bringing it to “Back to Back” on Meek Mill with his latest diss track. The “Back to Back” freestyle is a problem and Hip Hop listeners are now waiting in great anticipation for Meek to bring the solution. By now, everyone is in the loop on this Hip Hop beef, but here is a quick run down.
*Last week, Meek accused Drake of having a ghost writer.
Over the weekend, Drake responded by dropping “Charged Up” diss.
Meek called the diss, “Baby lotion soft.”
Monday, Meek was scheduled to drop a diss track via Hot 97, but he never did.
The Pinkprint Tour hit Toronto, Meek hit the stage with the words “F*ck You” on the screen behind him.
Today, Drake unleashes “Back to Back” diss.
*This actually did not happen first, but only Drake and Meek know what actually started the rift between these two emcees.
Today, Drake looked for the “checkmate” move as he dropped his new diss track, which you can hear below.
Apparently shortly after the “Back to Back” diss was released someone started a gofundme.com account to help Meek Mill record his Drake diss track. That’s how important it is for Meek to respond at this point.
There is even a newly developed website, SaveMeekMill.com, which is set up to help build Meek’s brand by collecting donations to buy school supplies for the youth in Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia. However, don’t let the positive mission statement fool you. The website states, “We strive to inspire the youth into different career paths other than being the type of rapper Meek Mill once glorified. We will save the youth from any future embarrassment caused at the hands of their rap adversaries when they find themselves in a beef — inspired by the one Meek Mill is currently losing to Drake. How? By inspiring them to not be like Meek Mill at all.”
The ball is in your court Meek. You’re down in points, but it’s your possession. So what are you going to do? The clock is ticking…
Hip Hop fans have recently found themselves in the middle of a Hip Hop soap opera featuring Philly rapper Meek Mill and Toronto emcee Drake. With all of the ups & downs between the two lyricist Meek has still found the time to drop a visual to his latest album’s second single, “All Eyes On You.” The track features Meek’s girlfriend Nicki Minaj and R & B bad boy Chris Brown.
“All Eyes On You” is Meek’s biggest hit to date as it is the highest charting single of his solo career. It is currently sitting at #28 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and has shown no signs of losing any momentum. This Benny Boom directed visual will definitely add to the song’s successful run. Check out Meek and Nicki getting extra close in “All Eyes On You” below.
This coming Monday Meek will be releasing his long waited album Dreams Worth More Than Money. Today the Philly emcee drops the follow up single to “Check” (“Monster” and “B-Boy” don’t appear on the standard tracklist). The single is titled “All Eyes On You” and features both Chris Brown and Meek’s special lady Nicki Minaj. The two emcees along with Breezy do what they do best on the slow romantic ballad.
This song is definitely radio ready, so even if you dare to not hit that play button below, please believe that you’re still going to hear this track sooner than later anyways.
Listen to Meek’s latest single featuring Ms. Minaj and CB below and be ready for that Dreams Worth More Than Money album this Monday.
