Behind The Lyrics: Rick Ross Comes For Drake and Wayne (or Birdman?) On “Color Money”

Yesterday afternoon, Rick Ross released a song called “Color Money,” which is a cut off his forthcoming album Black Market, dropping this Friday. Around the 1:20 mark, Rozay has some interesting lyrics:

My lil homie made a million on his girl tour We back to back and down to whack a n*gga’s unborn Miami n*ggas got them changing all the gun laws So run Forest, got some shooters and they dying too I got more money than that p*ssy that you’re signed to

Behind The Lyrics: Did Pusha T Come For Birdman Again On “Untouchable”?

Pusha T and Birdman have a storied history, dating back to Clipse days in 05/06 when Push and Wayne (who was obviously very close to Birdman at the time) had issues. There has been slick talking between the YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music camps for some years now (namely on Push’s side for the latter,) and it even includes a few diss tracks. (And yes, “New God Flow” was one of them.) As the empire at YMCMB crumbled late last year and into 2015, Push gloated at his “prophecy” a bit, proving that the tension was still very much prevalent. Now with his soon-to-be-released single “Untouchable,” he’s seemingly proving it once more.

Behind The Lyrics: Lil B Disses The Weeknd On “4 Tha Record”

Lil B has put his Based God curse on a few people in the past, but he’s stuck to athletes for the most part, and with a fairly good reason – they would do his cooking dance but not pay homage. For some reason, he’s turned his ire to The Weeknd now, though he doesn’t explain why.

“Call me Lil Bars with XO Bars Saying f*ck The Weeknd, I can’t sing that soft”

…are some of the lines, and later in the song:

“A lot of suckers fake so I can’t respect it F*ck The Weeknd put that on record”

He hasn’t exactly put the Based God‘s curse on him, but still – unwarranted disses are never too fun! “4 Tha Record” will live on Lil B’s upcoming mixtape, Thugged Out Pissed Off.

Behind The Lyrics: Did Chris Brown Send A Message To Karrueche On Rick Ross’ “Sorry”?

Yesterday, Rick Ross premiered the lead single to his next album, Black Market, (dropping in December.) The Chris Brown-assisted “Sorry” is definitely going to do numbers at radio, with a catchy hook and Ross dropping bars about his special lady. “One of the most honest records I’ve done in a while,” Breezy wrote on Instagram just before the record dropped. “I appreciate ROSS for allowing me to be me on a record and speak from the heart.”

Lupe Fiasco Responds To The Game Calling Him Weird

On his recently released track “Dollar & A Dream” off his forthcoming album The Documentary 2, The Game raps:

“I stayed the same, ain’t go weird like Lupe”

On a scale of Game disses, this is certainly on the less-meaner side of things, but it’s still a bit of a jab nonetheless. In response, Lupe Fiasco remained rather cool, and tweeted the Compton rapper a link to Radiohead’s “Creep” music video, where they sing, “I’m a weirdo.” I’m going to take that as Lupe saying he’s proud to be a bit different. Hopefully that was the start and end of that back-and-forth, because we all know how far Game can go!

Behind The Lyrics: Kevin Gates Speaks On Kicking Female Fan On “The Truth”

Last week, Kevin Gates responded to a female fan who was pulling on his leg at a Florida concert by kicking her in the chest. (Like, what is wrong with this guy?!) After the video of the incident went viral, local police took matters into their own hands and charged the rapper with simple battery. I won’t be surprised if a lawsuit is coming his way soon as well! Amongst the headlines and backlash, Kevin has written a song about the incident called “The Truth.”
