Drake dropped a new track! Drake dropped a new track! Sound the alarms. But I’m sure you’re hip to it and heard it already. In case you haven’t, the new track from Drizzy — resident rap slayer and venerable “6 God” — is entitled “Tell Your Friends,” and is actually a remix of The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness cut. Fitting, seeing as how both came up in Toronto and croon their little hearts out. (Also they’ve collaborated in the past, duh!) Anyways, check out Drake’s take on The Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends” after the jump!
King Louie, or King L, is dropping off the visuals for “Pay Back,” a track that finds the Chicago rapping going over a classic James Brown sample. This is definitely worthy of a listen if you’re trying to get over that Hump Day. Check out Louie’s hard as f**k “Pay Back” after the jump.
So a lot has happened within the last 48 hours or so — let us catch you up to speed. What seemed like a normal installment of “OVO Sound Radio” on iTunes, Drake’s show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station, soon turned into an all out assault on Meek Mill. During the program, Drake premiered three new tracks: “Charged Up”, “You Used To” (a remix of D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha”), and “Right Hand”. “Charged Up” is rumored to be a response to Mill who sent out some nasty tweets Drake’s way over the weekend — mostly targeting his lyrical content which he believes have been “ghostwritten”. The particular song in question, “R.I.C.O.” is on Mill’s newest album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. You can listen to both “Charged Up” and “Cha Cha” after the jump. Let us know what you think of the Drake/Meek Mill fiasco, as well.
Looking for a banger to start your week? Well, Atlanta’s Super Chef iLoveMakonnen has just what you need. Makonnen teams up with producer Richie Souf, who provides some trunk-knocking production. “Where Your Girl At?” is a loud one, so if you’re at work definitely turn this down. But if you’re cruising and need something to immediate drivers and pedestrians alike then bang this immediately. Check out Makonnen’s “Where Your Girl At?” after the jump.
iLoveMakonnen likes to cook. He’s a chef. Correction: Hes’s a super chef. In his latest visual demonstration, Makonnen kicks it in the kitchen, cooking and just having a grand ol’ time. I mean, how can you not be joyous when in the kitchen? Come on! Anyway, check out iLoveMakonnen’s “Super Chef” video after the jump.
Super Chef Makonnen is back after dropping his Drink More Water 5 mixtape. He’s dropping a track entitled after one of his many nicknames and it’s produced by GOLD. Check out Makonnen’s “Super Chef” cut after the jump.
Drake’s mixtape/album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (read our review of the album here) is getting a physical release on April 21st and with it arriving in stores Drizzy is sharing a new track that’ll only appear on the aforementioned physical version. “My Side” (along with “How Bout Now”) are the two bonus tracks. You can stream “My Side” for free after the jump.
Last night was a monumental moment for hip-hop as Drake headlined the final night of Coachella’s opening weekend. During his performance he busted out a few songs from his surprise new album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. The biggest (and most bizarre) moment of his set came midway through, when Madonna made a surprise appearance. After a brief performance of “Human Nature” and “Hung Up” she circled around Drizzy, leaned down, and initiated a long, kiss. After a few seconds, she uttered her latest catchphrase “B**ch, I’m Madonna” – and sauntered offstage. Watch the entire performance after the jump. It’s a doozy.
Styles P just can’t stop giving. I guess the “P” stands for Presents because this man has all the gifts, even when you’re least expecting ’em. After dropping some serious gems a week back with “Still Bangin'” and “Don’t Fade Em” P returns with a remix of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cut “Energy.” Check it out after the jump.
Notorious Houston producer and legendary chopped DJ OG Ron C is currently in the process of working on a forthcoming chopped-and-screwed remix project of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, fittingly titled If You’re Choppin This It’s Too Late. OG Ron C has gone on to share the chopped version of “Madonna” which in addition features second verse from Drake, which you can check out after the jump.
Drake’s recent signee iLoveMakonnen (whom he collaborated with on “Tuesday”) is set to release his forthcoming project Drink More Water 5 any day now and to tease the release he is sharing “Super Clean.” “Super Clean” is co-produced by Phantom Power. Listen after the jump.
iLoveMakonnen teams up with Vampire Weekend’s frontman Ezra Koenig and NY spitter Despot for a remix of “Down 4 So Long” as part of Red Bull’s 20Before15 campaign. Listen to the unlikely collaboration after the jump.
