Meanwhile… Back At Drake’s House (Back to Back).


Drake-Angry-Philip-Seymour-Hoffman-Gets-His-Rolling-Stone-Cover

I was having a conversation earlier in the week with my good friend and producer Masna, about Drake’s semi-response to Meek Mills’ accusations of Drizzy’s lyrics on Meeks album being ghost written. I personally thought his first response was a bit soft served. A rapper who built a career around “Diss me, and you’ll never hear a reply for it.” finally straight up disses someone one, but it was only a few subliminal bars that rang through on a mellow “not addressing the subject” feel.  What I told Manni is that Drake should have come full force in his response, a blistering rebutle of indictments oozing with ferocity… And then he did. Take a listen to October’s Very Own’s second diss track titled “Back to Back” and sound off on what you think.

Drake- ‘Charged Up’


drake-cover-990

Earlier this week, the rapper Meek Mill unleashed a series of tweets that sought to expose the much more famous rapper Drake as a fraud. The two had recently collaborated on the Meek Mill single “R.I.C.O.,” and Meek seemed a bit salty that Drake hadn’t promoted the tune on his social media or whatever his reason was, so he accused him of using a ghostwriter on the tune and faking his raps. Drake stayed relatively quiet about it until he released his response ‘Charged Up’ today. Check it out below!

Meek Mill – Dreams And Nightmares

It was all a dream… Meek Mill reflects on his rags-to-riches story in the pensive video for “Dreams and Nightmares,” the intro track to his debut album. The Maybach Music MC, who is readying his new mixtape Dreamchcasers 3,walks down the steet and has flashbacks from his troubled past as a dreadlocked felon on the streets, fast forwarding to himself driving Bentleys and doing songs with Mariah Carey. His rhymes get more intense as the visuals also heat up with a fiery car scene. He and his Dreamchasers crew ride their BMX bikes and mob the streets. For a second, Meek imagines himself in the back of a cop car, but he’s not about to go down that road again.

After putting in the hard work, Machine Gun Kelly enjoys his success in the video for “La La La (The Floating Song),” a bonus cut off his debut Lace Up. The “Wild Boy” rides an ATV, smokes on the beach, and parties on a yacht with his EST crew in the laid-back visuals, which were shot during his holiday vacation in Saint Martin. Security tried to stop him from filming, but he wasn’t about to put down the camera. Next up, MGK will release his new single “Peso” featuring Meek Mills and Pusha T, followed by his mixtape in February.

Meek Mill ft. Big Sean – Burn (Official Video).


As the world waits for the release of Meek Mill’s highly anticipated debut album Dreams & Nightmares, set to hit stores October 30th, Mill gives us a taste of what we should expect with the release of the music video for his single Burn featuring D-Town’s Big Sean. Mill and Sean go hard on this track, talking about the usual getting money, crushing honeys, and being all about that life. Mill brought on DRE Films for the production of the video, which is set in a parking garage similar to Kanye’s video for Mercy released earlier this year, but without the trippy camerawork. The video features Meek Mill and Big Sean going hard in the garage, avoiding the dangers of flaming trash barrels and stray crocodiles, while of course being surrounded by a handful of video vixens. This video is pretty dope and is definitely getting me excited to see what else Meek Mill will bring to the plate in his upcoming Dreams and Nightmares.

Asher Roth feat. Meek Mill – Party Girl.


I’ve been a fan of Mr. Roth since before the release of ‘I Love College’, but you can’t always predict what any emcee will decide to do musically.  A collaboration between Meek Mill and Asher Roth seems a bit off the scale of possibility, but then again, stranger things have happened.  Click below to take a listen to ‘Party Girl’ from Asher Roth ft. Meek Mill.

Tyga – Rack City Remix (Official Video).


Rack City was such a recognizable track, that a remix was only the logical step in keeping the banger alive on the airwaves.  This time around, YMCMB’s Tyga teamed up with Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Meek Mill and T.I. to deliver a remix worthy of radio spins I’m positive it’ll attain.  Check out the official video below.

Meek Mills & Rick Ross Talk Music.


You have to admit that when certain artists start their careers, you never know what direction they’ll go in. In 05, I never really pictured Rick Ross having as stellar as a career as he’s undeniably having right now. But with hit after hit, he’s locked down a solid spot in Rap infamy. And with the advent of “Maybach Music” he’s bringing people like Meek Mills along for the ride with him. So when Rick and Mills got on the mic to speak about their ‘I’m A Boss’ remix, I was listening intently. Check the method.

XXL Freshmen Roundtable Discussion.


XXL recently held a round-table discussion with the 2011 Freshmen.  They discussed everything from their views on the industry to the way the internet has effected their careers.  Check all 3 parts of the discussion out below.

Freshman Class of 2011.


Over the last few years, XXL’s “Freshman Class” has become a list to watch for among hip-hop fans. The highly anticipated 2011 grads have finally been revealed. Usually, it’s 10, but this year the long-running mag chose 11.  Although the cover leaked nearly a month ago, the official list was just this week.  The 11 rappers XXL thinks you should watch are: Lil Twist, CyHi Da Prynce, Big K.R.I.T., Meek Mill, Diggy Simmons, Kendrick Lamar, Fred the Godson, Lil B, Mac Miller, Yelawolf, and YG.  “This year, during the selection process, we spotted a problem: In the past, some years had been hard getting the list up to 10; in 2011, the difficulty was getting the number down to 10,” the mag said.  “We realized we had more new rap talent to pick from for the 2011 Freshman class than previous years. So we decided to make an exception and chose an extra Freshman this year, because it was clear that 10 just wouldn’t be enough.”

Some of the names on the list could be considered a grade level higher than freshman, but each are definitely deserving of being called the “next” artists to make impacts — some are already doing just that though.  Yelawolf had quite a big 2010. After dropping Trunk Muzik and Trunk Muzik 0-60, the rapper capped off the year by inking a solo deal with Eminem’s Shady Records.  Lil B is an eccentric native of the Bay Area, who started as a member of a group called The Pack. However, over the past year, he’s embraced a weird swag about himself, stirring up things online, via random tweets, and building such a following in the digital world that it could not be denied. He’s invented a new sub-genre of music he calls Based Music. What is it? We still don’t know.

Mississippi’s Big K.R.I.T. made numerous year-end Top 10 lists, following the release of two popular mixtapes, and appearances alongside Curren$y’s debut Pilot Talk, and Wiz Khalifa’s uber-popular mixtape, Kush and Orange Juice.  Compton rapper, YG, broke out with his smash single, “Toot It and Boot It,” and even managed to nab heavy hitters for the official remix, such as Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and E-40. He’s got to be doing something right?  Mac Miller is a white rapper hailing from Pittsburgh, and signed to Rostrum Records, which also boasts Wiz Khalifa. He’s built a fan base online, thanks to the release of two mixtapes in 2010, and constant touring.  Kendrick Lamar, well, he’s been grinding hard over the past few years, becoming a mainstay on hip-hop biggest audio blogs. But, it was Dr. Dre who reached out and co-signed him that helped other fans get hip to the young rapper and his music. There’s no question Dre can pick talent, so pay attention.

Lil Twist, well, he’s from Weezy’s camp, so people are becoming more and more familiar with him. CyHi Da Prynce has gotten more and more shine, thanks his constant hustle, and re-emergence of Kanye West.  Meek Mill just inked a deal with Rick Ross, who has been touted him as the future. Fred the Godson is a Bronx rapper showing a little bit of that New York hustle.  As for Diggy Simmons, well, he had a good start by having Rev. Run as his father and appearing on “Run’s House,” but people were skeptical at first upon hearing that he was pursuing a rap career. However, once hearing a few tracks, you couldn’t deny his skills. He inked a solo deal with Atlantic Records and is currently preparing his debut album.  The 2011 Freshman issue of XXL hits newsstands on March 15.
