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.
OB O’Brien (the redhead/beard guy in all of Drake’s videos/pics) shares “Schemin Up” featuring OVO head honcho Drake and P. Reign, produced by Boi-1da and Noah “40” Shebib. Listen after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, “Tuesday,” the song that dominated your various social networking feeds over the year was nominated for a Best Rap/Sung Collaboration Grammy. And to celebrate iLoveMakonnen appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to perform “Tuesday.” How fitting. Peep Makonnen’s live performance after the jump.
Drake’s “6 God” instrumental gets a freestyle from somebody everyone least expected. Tyler James Williams, the actor who is best known for portraying a young Chris Rock on the hit show Everybody Hates Chris stopped by Sway. But the interview took an interesting turn when Sway dropped the instrumental to Drake’s newly released “6 God”. That’s when Tyler snapped, spitting a godly freestyle. The boy done growed up, ya’ll. You have to see it to believe it. Video after the jump!
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.
Makonnen’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” received an official remix from Wiz Khalifa but surely that wasn’t enough. Now, we’ve got Gucci Mane jumping on another remix. Again this is a surprise to many as Big Guwop is currently incarcerated. Listen to the new, updated “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” remix featuring a verse from Gucci 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.
Makonnen’s hit single “Tuesday”, which got the almighty Drake feature now receives its official video treatment. In the video Makonnen and Drake got the club… you guessed it… goin’ up. Check out the vid after the jump.
