It was touch and go over the last few days, but Lil Wayne has finally made good on his Labor Day Weekend promise in delivering the fifth entry into the Dedication series. Hosted by DJ Drama, this tape has a little more intrigue than recent ones as Wayne admitted a few weeks ago that his rhymes have been subpar. He vowed to fans to start taking his craft seriously again.

Included on this staggering 29-track tape are guest spots from The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Jae Millz, 2 Chainz, Birdman, T.I. and others. And as with previous entries, Wayne picks all the recent hits, underground and mainstream, to rock over. Check the samples and download.

If your impression of the Rich Gang album is that it’s just a thrown together mashup of MMG and Young Money throwaways, this video for the Rick Ross-featuring “50 Plates” will do little to change your opinion. Typical beat and typical rhymes mire this one in mediocrity.



Swizz Beatz returns to the club circuit with an all-star lineup in tow on “Hands Up.” Even though the chorus is ready-made for EDM, the song’s bass thump and flows help the song retain a strong Hip-Hop edge. Speaking of flows, Nicki Minaj is once again ahead of her peers on this one. For whatever reason, she’s still keen on picking at the carcass that is her feud with Lil Kim, as evidenced by the opening bar about the “real queen.”




Great lovers are made, not born, is the mantra on this new single from Chris Brown. First heard at the BET Awards, Brown vows to the unnamed lady in question that until they get it right, they’re gonna “fuck some more.” For her part, Nicki lifts her old rival Lil Kim’s steez in appropriating a few old Biggie lines to kick off her verse. This song is set to be included on Brown’s upcoming X album.


From ’95 through now, DJ Khaled has been rocking with Cash Money. Well, not really, but you’ll get the theme of sticking with the people who brought you success from this new video for “No New Friends.” The clip also features the infamous outfit and pose that inspired so many Drake memes earlier this month. “No New Friends” will be included on Khaled’s upcoming album Suffering From Success.


A better title for this track is “Drake and friends” since Drizzy’s blueprint is all over these proceedings. Drake handles the chorus and provides the best verse as well. Wayne sounds like he’s still shaking off the effects of his recent health scare, Ross is merely serviceable, and Future is thrown in randomly in the closing minute. Not an immediate smash guest spot like Drake did for Khaled with “I’m On One” a few years back, but this is still solid.


Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz unite for the latest video off Wayne’s new album I Am Not a Human Being 2 (March 26). Beat is catchy. Also below, Wayne make his first video appearance (with T.I. in tow) speaking on his recent health scare.

On my King James shit trying to win here again…


Drake is on his young Jay-Z steez putting rap rivals (and apparently old friend The Weekend) in their place on this one. Definitely feeling this over “Started From the Bottom” (which was a heater is its own right). I’m making a prediction that Drake’s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same will be his best project.


With Drake winning Hip-Hop album of the year at the Grammys earlier tonight, the man’s timing couldn’t be better in dropping the official video for his new single. Don’t think I’ve seen the “rapping beside the moving car” shot since Ja in the “Holla Holla” video.

Nice to see Nicki Minaj produce a video for one of the few straight Hip-Hop tracks off Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Cam comes through with the standout verse out of the three. As with any Minaj video, you’re treated to an array of loud colors, quirky faces and sexual innuendo (not that the latter is a problem). The video is directed by Colin Tilley.
