Nicki Minaj is at her raunchy best on this remix for Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM.” She focuses on her seductive powers and why most men have too much “fuckboy” in them to stand a chance with her. Former adversaries catch small shrapnel in Lil Kim (“Even Queen Bee had to tell them I’m the queen”) and Miley Cyrus (“I asked Miley what’s good…”). In light of recent news, Nicki makes sure to end her verses chock full of ass play images.

MeekMill

Meek Mill isn’t giving up, y’all. Last night in his native Philly, Meek dropped a new freestyle diss at Drake. Since Meek stated at an earlier tour stop that he’s currently “not doing the studio thing,” he’s possibly using the remaining tour dates to test out some of these disses before recording a true follow-up to “Wanna Know.” In Meek’s mind, this battle with Drake is a marathon, not a sprint. Will this be enough to bait Drake into dropping the rumored “3-Peat?

SPITTING OTHER NIGGA’S SHIT, BUT YOU CLAIMING KING, THOUGH?

Meek Mill has finally broken his silence with an official diss answer to Drake called “Wanna Know.” Starting off with the Undertaker’s ominous theme, Meek also incorporates the reference bars from Quentin Miller’s reference on “Know Yourself.” You can’t say Meek didn’t come back swinging. Is it enough to kill the “Back to Back” jokes? You decide.

UPDATE: Drake’s instagram response. A picture worth 1000 words.

Drake is back on the offensive with a second diss aimed at Meek Mill entitled “Back to Back.” Although I prefer the “Charged Up” beat, Drake has some sharper lines here. For an emcee that’s in touch with his feminine side, Drake has some hard-hitting lines regarding Meek’s masculinity:

Trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers/You getting bodied by a singing nigga…”

Is it a world tour or your girl’s tour?

Shout out to all my boss bitches wifin’ niggas

If Meek loses despite having “ghostwriter” ammo, this goes down as the biggest on wax battle choke in Hip-Hop history.

Writer’s Note: What’s the deal with the cover? That is Toronto Blue Jays player Joe Carter right after hitting a home run to win the 1993 World Series. What team did he do it against? The Philadelphia Phillies.

Yesterday’s “All Eyes On You” video must have been the last straw for Safaree, who officially took his grievances to the booth with “Lifeline.” Despite cringing with that opening chorus, the song improves as it goes along and Safaree definitely went in on that closing verse. This isn’t going to change the narrative since Nicki and Meek have legions of fans, but I respect Safaree for attempting to defend himself from the heapings of social media slander those two have inflicted on him.

Now the bigger question — buy or sell on the belief that Safaree was a ghostwriter for Nicki? Dude sounds exactly like her on this. Maybe he was doing it for effect, but this raises a few more interesting questions in light of the ongoing Drake fiasco.

Speaking of Drake, he should’ve given that “Charged Up” beat to Safaree.

Love ballads in the midst of a brewing battle? Timing aside, Nicki Minaj is looking lovely in this clip for the Omeeka duet “All Eyes On You.” That scooter shot is unintentional comedy. Meek latest set, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is in stores now.

Meek Mill set the rap industry ablaze late Tuesday night with a Twitter rant accusing Drake of using ghostwriters.

Meek claims the issues stem from Drake not supporting his latest album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, despite being featured on the project. Meek states that he found out Drake did not write his verse on their latest collaboration “R.I.C.O,” and mentions the name of up and coming rapper Quentin Miller as Drake’s rumored ghostwriter.

You can view portions of Meek’s rant below. At press time, Drake has not responded.


What a night, huh? A few things about this situation. One, there’s probably a lot of truth to Meek’s statements about Drake using a writer(s). Rappers do not just come into a studio and create melodies, hooks etc by themselves. However, having someone write out your raps fully is a mark against your status as an elite emcee, which Meek is arguing.

The other caveat is the fact Meek deleted all his pictures with Nicki Minaj off social media, sparking more rumors that these supposed issues with Drake’s pen is really a smokescreen to hide the fact Drizzy and Minaj had/have an intimate relationship.

Far as Drake’s response, he needs to take it to the booth with a direct answer. No subliminals on Twitter, interviews or in a song. The man challenged your pen game and worth as an emcee. I know many in the younger emcees shy away from direct confrontations, but there is no other way for Drake to handle this and not lose face.
