Jason Derulo Says He Had No Idea Nicki Minaj Was Dissing Remy Ma On His Song

Nicki Minaj threw some jabs at Remy Ma on her back-to-back verses that dropped last month – one on Gucci Mane’s “Make Love,” the other on Jason Derulo’s “Swalla” with Ty Dolla $ign. These two songs are what ultimately prompted Remy to release “SHEther” – and Jason didn’t even see it coming.


Behind The Lyrics: Is The Weeknd Taking Shots At Justin Bieber On His Latest Verse?

There is some tension between fellow Canadian natives The Weeknd and Justin Bieber – and with good reason – the XO singer is currently dating the Biebs’ former girlfriend and love of his life, Selena Gomez. Justin has been throwing shade toward his ex’s new man on social media here and there, and now it seems like Weeknd is bouncing back.


Behind The Lyrics: Did Pusha T Diss Drake Once Again On “HGTV”?

Pusha T and Drake’s rivalry goes back a bit, stemming originally from Pusha’s beef with Lil Wayne that started a decade ago during the “Mr. Me Too” era. Push has never been shy about letting Drizzy know he’s got bars for him, but Drake has been careful to never reply. Push isn’t stopping, though, and fired off a few more subs on last week’s “HGTV.”


Behind The Lyrics: Joe Budden Takes Up For Mike Zombie, Fetty Wap, Migos + More On Drake Diss “Wake”

After releasing “Making A Murderer (Part One)” last week, Joe Budden comes for Drake a second time with “Wake.” This time, Joe makes note of the artists that Drake has seemingly used for his own advantage and done nothing to help them further, naming Migos, Fetty Wap, iLoveMakonnen, The Weeknd and even “Started From The Bottom” producer, Mike Zombie.


Behind The Lyrics: Is Vic Mensa Firing Shots At Chance The Rapper In New Freestyle?

The day after posting and deleting the above bizarre photoshopped image that removed Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa hit up L.A.‘s Power 106 to promote his new EP. While there, he spit a freestyle for the LA Leakers, and it sounds like his petty pic wasn’t his only shot at his former friend.

“Phone ring – I might have to call up Miss Info Let her get a little bit of info Bout some n*ggas that I used to be cool with…”

Hmm! I wonder what could have possibly happened! Check out the clip below.


Behind The Lyrics: Troy Ave Addresses Irving Plaza Shooting On New Mixtape

Troy Ave is currently locked up without bail, facing murder charges for the shooting that went down at Irving Plaza late last month. As he continues to declare his innocence, the Brooklyn rapper released a project of music he’d recorded before the incident. Originally titled Real vs. Fake, Troy has fittingly renamed the 12-track project to Free Troy Ave, and opens it with a freestyle that he did over the phone from jail. On it, he addresses the shooting, as well as his feelings about his now-deceased friend, Banga.


Behind The Lyrics: Drake Seemingly Comes For Diddy & Joe Budden On “4pm In Calabasas”; Diddy & Joe Respond

On Saturday night, Drake blessed his OVO Sound Radio show with a one-hour guest DJ set. In that time, he premiered three new records from himself, including Justin Bieber’s “One Dance” remix, his new collab with Gucci Mane and the solo record, “4pm In Calabasas.” It’s the latter that’s making the most noise by far. You don’t need to hear the entire song to realize Drizzy is going IN on this record, seemingly finding the “inspiration” that Joe Budden was accusing him of lacking on Views on his now-infamous podcast episode. Joe himself noted this, tweeting “Sounded inspired,” while live-streaming Drake’s DJ set.


Behind The Lyrics: Lil Wayne Hints That He’s Still With Christina Milian On “Hype” Remix

Over the weekend, Drake dropped the remix to his Views cut, “Hype,” on OVO Sound Radio. The track featured his Young Money boss Lil Wayne, who delivered one of his best verses in some time. He also said something that piqued the interest of the gossip fans that are more interested in his personal life than his bars:

“You see my team is right next to me You don’t see Tina right next to me I thank her for takin’ my breath from me”


Behind The Lyrics: Drake Shades Rick Ross & Tory Lanez On “Weston Road Flows”

On Friday, Drake released his latest album, Views. On the 40-produced “Weston Road Flows,” there was definitely some shade toward Rick Ross and Tory Lanez. The Tory beef has been brewing for a minute so that comes as no surprise, but the Rozay shot is a bit interesting, though it’s understandable considering the Meek Mill situation.


Behind The Lyrics: Macklemore Disses Iggy Azalea On “White Privilege II”; Iggy Responds

In 2005, Macklemore released the song “White Privilege” on his album, The Language Of My World. Now as he gears up to release his new album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made with Ryan Lewis, he’s released part 2, and it’s definitely sparking a lot of conversations. “We’re more concerned with being called racist than we are with racism,” Macklemore raps on the song, as he looks into the topic of the racial injustice in America, his motives understandably being questioned when he wants to help with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and more.
