Rick Ross’ eight studio album Black Market is set to drop tomorrow (Dec. 4th) and he recently shared “Color Money,” which has been perceived to be a Drake diss. Today, during an interview on Power 105.1 FM’s “The Breakfast Club,” Rozay talked about the track. When asked, “Are you taking shots at Drake on ‘Color Money’?” Ross was quick to respond: “I just released ‘Color Money’ and that record is what it is. It’s a lot of people that’s gonna interpret it a lot of different ways.” He also talked about Lil Wayne’s beef with Birdman, and shared his thoughts about ghostwriting. Check out the full, half hour long interview with Rick Ross after the jump.

DJ E-Feezy has a new mixtape out, it’s called The Wolf of South Beach, and it’s got some huge guest spots. One of those noteworthy guests is Lil Wayne. Remember him? Well, he’s on a track called “What You Sayin,” which is pretty cool. Wayne does his thing and it’s far from abysmal. The beat also thumps so if you’re into those sorts of things go ahead and press play. Check it out after the jump and head over to LiveMixtapes to cop DJ E-Feezy’s latest tape.
Lil Durk is sitting on a hit with “Like Me” from his debut album, Remember My Name. The kid’s come a long, long way — from the streets of Chicago to the big stage — and it’s nice to see someone getting out of trouble. Unfortunately the album isn’t all that hot and I’m not feeling the new direction Durk has gone in. I prefer his work on Life Ain’t Joke or the first installment to his Signed to the Streets mixtape series. Either way, “Like Me” is a pleasant enough track, and the additions of Jeremih, Lil Wayne and bona fide superstar Fetty Wap are good to set the track over. Listen to the remix of Durk’s “Like Me” after the jump.
Lil Wayne is teaming up with Charlie Puth for a collaborative track. The track, “Nothing But Trouble,” will appear on the documentary 808, which tells the inspiring story of the Roland TR808.

Peep “Nothing But Trouble” after the jump.
French Montana is joined by Rick Ross and Lil Wayne for “Lose It,” a song that is being touted as a Gucci Mane tribute? Interesting. You know what else is interesting?

Remember O.T. Genasis? The guy who had the smash hit “CoCo”? Yeah, that guy. Well, he’s finally coming out with some actual material for ya’ll. If that’s what you wanted. The new mixtape will be entitled Rhythm & Bricks and should be out very soon. But in the meantime Genasis is serving you up with “Do It” featuring Lil Wayne who has been featured a lot lately. Like, a lot. Check out “Do It” after the jump.
Yesterday we shared The Doppelgangaz’ “Jail Weight” featuring Jim Jones and now another Diplomats member is coming through with some fire. Freekey Zekey’s “We Hustle” features a big guest spot from Lil Wayne, who is practically giving away his verses at this point. But as long as its this quality then it doesn’t matter to me — keep up the good work Wayne! Listen to Freekey’s “We Hustle” after the jump.
One of XXL’s 2015 Freshmen is looking to make a splash less than a day removed from gracing the magazine’s cover.

Another W for Jay Z? Lil Wayne just released the first single from his forthcoming Free Wayne Album project (Tha Carter V still sits on the shelf) exclusively on TIDAL and it’s fire! Jay may have that W for putting this out exclusively on your streaming service but a huge W goes to Wayne for holding it down. Seriously, he snaps; rapping his ass off for over five minutes. While this was exclusively on TIDAL it’s now made its way around the web. Check out Wayne’s “Glory” after the jump.
