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.

gucci-mane-peepin

I am a huge Gucci Mane fan. In fact, that’s an understatement — I’ve been supporting bro for a minute now. I recall the whole Gucci/Jeezy beef at its most palpable. I also recall many not siding with Gucci — even stooping as low as calling him a Jeezy wannabe. Yikes! It was a weird time but now it’s clear that Gucci is the true Trap God of Atlanta and he has put his city on his back for almost two decades. Not to mention the unbelievable impact his taste has had on hip-hop culture — he’s the ultimate cosigner. But one thing I dislike is when Gucci “links up” with a bunch of weed carriers who are merely here to co-opt the legend’s status in the street rap scene. That’s not to say one Playboi Carti and 21 Savage don’t hold their own on this new track, “Peepin’,” it’s just not the lane Gucci should be heading in at the moment. Or maybe ever? The result is always clunky. Gucci? He does his thing and C4 is on the production, so just peep the track for that. After the jump.

Janet Jackson is prepping her big comeback and she’s already dropped a solid number with “No Sleep.” J. Cole, the rapper who could, is joining Janet for the official remix of the track. “No Sleep” is Janet Jackson’s first song in well over five years so it’s pretty crazy and actually kind of cool that Cole is on the remix. Check it out after the jump, folks.

Lil Uzi Vert, the young Philadelphia rapper, recently linked up with Lil Herb on “On My Line,” and now he’s back with some new ish. Once again the artwork is sick and the track’s production is ill. “All Night” features production from Cardo, who serves up some symphonic instrumental that is quite gorgeous and even haunting. Check out the new Uzi Vert cut after the jump.

Jay Elec, Jay Elec, Jay Elec — where to begin? How about the fact that this dude has been teasing at new music for like — I don’t even know — almost a decade now? He’s also (reportedly) got some documentary film in the works, which is probably never gonna see the light of day. And now we’ve got a new, well, leaked track from Jay Electronica entitled “Man Up.” Apparently this track dates back to George W. Bush’s first term in office, which would mean somewhere between the years 2001-2005. The track is also produced by Jay Elec. Listen to the leaked track, “Man Up,” after the jump.

Travis Barker, drummer for pop punk band Blink-182, is perhaps the last name you’d think you’d find on a hip hop based website. But in all honesty the dude has a passion for music and has been known to post covers of popular rap songs. He’s done everything from Soulja Boy’s 2007 hit “Crank That” to Eminem’s “3am.” And he’s even released a full length album with all the tracks having a rapper as a guest feature — there was Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz & Game — and that was only on one song. Crazy. And here he’s teaming up with Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign, IAMSU!, and Tyga for “100.” Check it after the jump.
