Pour out a cup of your favorite drink, in my case Gatorade X-Factor, and jam out to Kendrick's latest preview from good kid, m.A.A.d city. Production via T-Minus. His album is slated to release on October 2.
New Drake single paying respect to all the independent girls out there, featuring Nicki Minaj off of Take Care.
Production by T-Minus, the same man who brought us "Moment 4 Life". For those who haven't heard yet, Take Care has been pushed back to November 15. Long story short there were 3 tracks which wouldn't have gotten clearance by October 24, so Drake decided that it was better to release the album the way it was meant to be heard rather than release it for a deadline. You can read his explanation here.
Prior to releasing the single Drake answered a lot of questions during an interview with Funkmaster Flex today. The topics ranged from Pusha-T's "Dreams Money Can Buy" freestyle, Lil Wayne's Jay-Z diss, and even rumours of him and Serena Williams.
"Make Me Proud" will be on iTunes this Saturday.
I tried to pay attention - but attention paid me
Here it is, the next Carter IV single She Will. This one is dark and hard. Drizzy on the hook, production by T-Minus. Birdman confirmed today that Drake and Lil Wayne will indeed be releasing a collab album á la Kanye & Jay-Z. Hit the jump to read the excerpt from XXL.
And so the hype for Carter IV continues:
Rap fans in love with Jay-Z and Kanye West’s joint album, Watch the Throne, can brace themselves for another release by different hip-hop dynamic duo: Lil Wayne and Drake.
Although he didn’t name a tentative date, Cash Money Records founder Bryan “Baby” Williams confirmed with XXL that Weezy and Drizzy will definitely be putting out a collaborative album together well after each deliver their respective solo efforts.
“Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album],” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.”
Birdman promises that Wayne and Drake will offer up a different sound from that of Jay and ‘Ye.
“It’s older versus younger,” Baby said. “I listened to a few songs [off Watch The Throne] and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.
“But what they’re doing is great,” he added. “I think it’s great for the game, great for the business, great for retail as a whole. I just think when Wayne and Drake get together is going to be something real special also because we more youthful.”
While a Wayne/Drake collabo LP is certainly something to look forward to in the foreseeable future, the Cash Money/Young Money camp currently has all its sights set on Weezy’s Tha Carter IV, which drops on August 29, followed by Drake’s sophomore LP, Take Care on October 24.
