While Drake and Meek Mill continue their beef, Waka Flocka Flame has decidedly used their “R.I.C.O.” collaboration for a freestyle of his own. Because, like, I thought this was about rap? This is actually kinda refreshing from Waka, too — he’s been a little quiet as of late. Check out his “R.I.C.O.” freestyle after the jump.

CyHi just dropped a bomb on everyone by kinda going after his superior, Kanye West. On “Elephant in the Room” CyHi takes a few jabs a Ye, who he is signed under on GOOD Music, and those jabs come from a seemingly real place. CyHi has been sitting on the shelf, waiting to break into the mainstream, and potentially even drop an album. But so far we’ve seen nothing other than a few mixtapes and scattered loosies. It’s refreshing to hear an artist “go at” someone in an artful and articulate manner — with zero emphasis on “dissing” them. Hopefully Ye reciprocates and all is worked out. More CyHi in 2015, please! Listen to “Elephant in the Room” after the jump.

Just as the graphic yet thought-provoking title and artwork depicts, “Officer Kill a N*gga” by acclaimed rapper KXNG Crooked, is a deep record that has its proverbial crosshair aimed at police and law enforcement agencies across America — and even goes on to address the on-going police brutality and killings we face here in our country — or as KXNG and legendary West Coast rapper, Ice Cube, has called it: AmeriKKKa. In addition to the song, KXNG has shared a powerful statement regarding the track and his feelings towards the recent wave of police brutality: “Back in the early eighties we traded our white hood for a badge and a blue uniform and we fooled them n*ggas. For over four decades we been Blu Klux Klannin’ them n*ggas, slaughtering em by the thousands cause we hate them n*ggas. Just dial 911 and we’ll come out and kill a n*gga.” Incredible stuff from KXNG Crooked. Listen to his new track, “Officer Kill a N*gga,” after the jump.

Meek Mill — a rapper who seemingly found paradise in record sales and critical acclaim courtesy of his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money — has sadly been embroiled in a beef… or feud… whatever you wanna call it, with the biggest name of ’em all, Drake. Drake has already sent out an arsenal of ammunition Meek’s way (byway of “Charged Up” and “Back to Back”) and now it appears as though Meek is finally ready for a response with “Wanna Know.” Unfortunately this wasn’t a hot diss track, no matter which way you cut it, and the world knows it. In case you were wondering what “Wanna Know” sounds like go and get at it after the jump.

Drake is back with his barrel still aimed at Meek Mill. This time he’s using “Back to Back” to go directly at Meek — slandering the rapper’s name and proving that Drizzy is the best in the game. In case “Charged Up,” the previous diss track was a little too soft for you then Drake’s got some serious ammunition in his cannon for “Back to Back.” Basically: Don’t fuck with Drake. Let’s see if we can get a Meek Mill response. Check out “Back to Back” after the jump.
