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.
The iLoveMakonnen cosigns just keep piling on as another high profile artist is jumping on a remix. Wiz Khalifa jumps on Makonnen’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” and it’s pretty refreshing to hear a Makonnen track that isn’t “Tuesday” which we can all agree has been remixed straight into the grave at this point. 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. After dropping a killer freestyle to Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” (quite easily the best out of everyone who did a remix/freestyle) and Riff Raff’s “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwdinz” Luda is back for more. This time he delivers a freestyle over iLoveMakonnen’s smash hit “Tuesday”. Listen after the jump.
The story of Makonnen is quite touching: a weirdo kid out of place in Atlanta knocking on virtually every door possible only to have them all slammed in his face until finally striking a friendship/working relationship with rising local producers Metro Boomin and (later) Sonny Digital. This relationship led to the creation of “Tuesday”, Makonnen’s smash hit. Makonnen, now signed to Drake’s OVO imprint, is keeping busy, and today we are introduced to MikeWiLLMakonnen (Mike WiLL Made It x Makonnen). You may listen to their wistful new track “Wishin’ You Well” after the jump.
Troy Ave got the club goin’ up… on a Tuesday. Yeah, yeah, it’s a track everyone knows and has beaten to death but leave it to Troy Ave to actually drop his remix of it on a Tuesday. Listen to Troy remix Makonnen’s “Tuesday” on a Tuesday after the jump.
Here’s Drake going for the Best Curator Award again. He has the real skill of adapting others’ styles and does no different with Ontario singer PARTYNEXTDOOR, lacing him with the co-sign to preview this club-friendly electric syrup sound. It’s all the rage in this slowed-down bouncy era. The OVO influence is strong in this one. Check the video after the jump.
