Drake’s “6 God” instrumental gets a freestyle from somebody everyone least expected.

You have to see it to believe it. Video after the jump!
Back in April when Future dropped his sophomore album Honest there was a track entitled “Never Satisfied” that featured a snippet of a Drake verse.

Welp, that sure was fast. With Drake’s recent three song drop off (“6 God”, Heat of the Moment”, and “How Bout Now”) that sent waves throughout the ‘net we were expecting some freestyles to inevitably crop up. However, we weren’t expecting them to hit the blogs that fast! In what is expected to be the first of many freestyles/remixes for any of the three new Drake tracks, noted battle rapper Murda Mook went ahead and did it first. Mook shared his freestyle for Drake’s banger of the bunch, “6 God”. In the freestyle Mook snaps, even taking shots at the OVO songwriter. Peep it after the jump.
Drake turned 28-years-old yesterday and to celebrate he is giving his fans some new music to bump. Not one song, but a total of three. “6 God”, “Heat of the Moment”, and “How Bout Now” all appeared on the Toronto songwriter’s OVO Soundcloud and we’re sure his fans are more than grateful for the new tunes to soundtrack their Saturday. No word yet as to whether or not any of these three cuts will appear on his forthcoming Views From the 6 album. Listen to “6 God”, “Heat of the Moment”, and “How Bout Now” after the jump.

Listen to Wiz on Mak’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” after the jump.
Ludacris has been on a roll lately. Bet you thought you’d never live to hear anyone say that again, huh? Well, it’s true.

This time he delivers a freestyle over iLoveMakonnen’s smash hit “Tuesday”. Listen after the jump.
