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.

Behind The Lyrics: Shy Glizzy Addresses Getting His Chain Snatched On “Cut It”

While performing in Memphis earlier this month, DC rapper Shy Glizzy got his chain stolen. The culprits have since proudly flaunted the piece on their social media pages, claiming they retaliated simply because he refused to do a song with them. Glizzy later responded in a series of now-deleted tweets, saying the chain had fallen off his neck and they’d merely snatched it up, and there wasn’t some big fight as many had insinuated. Now Glizzy is putting his response on wax with “Cut It”, and not only comes for the Memphis goons that relieved him of his possessions, but blogger DJ Akademiks as well for posting about it. (Which is kind of odd, but okay.)

Behind The Lyrics: Pusha T Comes For YMCMB Again On “M.T.F.R.”

Pusha T has just released “M.T.F.R.”, a Dream-featured record produced by Boi-1da that will live on his forthcoming album, Darkest Before The Dawn. And because he can, Push is taking shots at the YMCMB camp once again. In the first verse, Push name-drops Tyga as he raps:

“The illusion of money we don’t believe in You ask me, Tyga looking like a genius”
