Drake Shuts Down Idea That The Weeknd Wrote Most Of “Take Care”

Drake is currently busy touring Australia, but that didn’t keep him from letting loose a solid clapback aimed at one unlucky fan (… again).

On Wednesday (November 15), Drake uploaded an image to his Instagram page paying homage to his Take Care album, celebrating its sixth birthday. The photo was then re-posted on one of Complex’s Instagram profiles.

In the comments section to Complex’s repost, one user claimed it was The Weeknd who handled most of the songwriting on Take Care.

Eve Speaks Out About Nicki Minaj’s #BreakTheInternet Photoshoot

Rapper and newly minted talk show host Eve voiced her issues with Nicki Minaj’s cover shoot for Paper Magazine on Wednesday’s (November 15) episode of The Talk.

The photoshoot, which was labelled as a sequel to Kim Kardashian’s nude #BreakTheInternet photoshoot from 2014, featured several versions of Minaj in suggestive poses and skimpy outfits.

Eve expressed huge respect for the record-breaking rapper from Queens, but said it wouldn’t be something she’d do personally.

“It’s one of those things because I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on Barbershop, and she is incredibly, like, she is a nice person,” Eve told the audience. “She’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her as a lyricist. But as a woman, from my point of view, personally, I wouldn’t be able to do that.”

“I think, in this climate, it’s not good,” she continued. “I think every artist has a right to express themselves however they want to express themselves, and I respect that as well. For me personally, as I started coming up in the business, I started realizing that young girls were looking up to me, and younger people were looking up to me.”

“Not that you want to want to be a role model, but it is what you are,” Eve finished, to applause from the audience.

It’s Eve’s first week as a permanent member at the table on the Daytime Emmy Award-winning show.

Eve hasn’t been the only one to call out Nicki Minaj for risqué poses and outfits, but others have pointed out how society and the internet take so much more notice when a woman is wearing less.

Meek Mill Fighting To Get Out Of Solitary Confinement, Probation & Prison

Philadelphia, PA – Meek Mill has officially filed documents requesting his release from prison, according to TMZ.

The publication reports that within the new documents – which were filed in his home state of Pennsylvania on Wednesday (November 15) – Meek’s legal team argues that his two-to-four-year prison sentence is the result of a vendetta against him by Judge Genece Brinkley.

Meek Mill’s lawyers also argue that the two incidents Brinkley says constituted his probation violation – misdemeanor assault and driving recklessly – were dismissed charges and had already been dropped. The documents also reportedly cite Meek’s probation officer testifying that the rapper had shown progress.

In addition to his release from prison, Meek Mill is also asking that his probation be completely terminated. The MMG rapper says he’s matured and has “generally been rehabilitated” after becoming a father and through his music career.

TMZ also reports that Meek is currently stuck in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day. His lawyers say that prison officials are keeping him separate from the rest of the inmates for his safety, but they argue that he’ll be fine in gen pop. Meek’s lawyers also say being cooped up in solitary for so long is hindering his creativity.

These latest developments come just days after it emerged that the FBI is reportedly investigating the judge presiding over Meek’s case. An anonymous source told Page Six that undercover agents have been monitoring the court proceedings in Meek Mill’s case for over a year.

A post shared by @lilpeep on Nov 14, 2017 at 11:16pm PST

Known for his Castles collaborations with now ex-GothBoiClique member, Lil Tracy, Peep had a promising career ahead of him and recently began to gain traction following the delivery of his Smokeasc-produced single and visual for “Benz Truck,” which is featured on the September 1 release of his debut album Come Over When You’re Sober.

As he began to gain in popularity, the fashion industry took notice of his uniqueness and openly embraced him. During 2017’s New York Fashion Week in Paris he sat front row at the Balmain men’s show and was photographed donning one of their pieces.

Lil Peep was reportedly working on an album with Makonnen before his untimely passing.

Despite it all, Lil Peep was openly dealing with depression and sincerely tackled the topics of drugs, love and death in his music. “I cry a lot, I get stressed out, I get overwhelmed,” he revealed in an interview with HighSnobiety.

Many in the Hip Hop community have expressed their condolences and paid tribute to “The Brightside” rapper on social media including long-time producers BigHeadOnTheBeat and Nedarb as well as Lil Yachty, Post Malone, Lil Pump, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign.

Chance The Rapper Is Making A Christmas Album With Jeremih

Chance The Rapper and Jeremih are cooking up some more holiday music. In a new interview with Rap-Up, producer Bongo ByTheWay revealed that Lil Chano and the “Birthday Sex” singer are currently working on a Christmas album.

“We’re literally still putting it together,” Bongo said. “It’s gonna be one of those [where] everything is gonna come together super fast.”

Chance teamed with Jeremih last December for a holiday mixtape titled Merry Christmas Lil Mama. The nine-track project featured production by Bongo, Zaytoven and C-Sick among others.

According to Bongo, the Chicago duo’s new Christmas album will feature a mix of remakes and original songs.

“It’s gonna be a little bit of both, but pretty much, it’s gonna be a completion of that project,” he said. “We just put it out for the culture, for the fans and stuff. Now, we’re really finishing it up and we’re gonna put it out right. It’s gonna have new music. It’s gonna be mixed and mastered and everything.”

Before Chance delivers his musical gifts for Christmastime, he’ll be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 18. The episode will be a Hip Hop-centric affair since Eminem is the show’s musical guest.

Posterz Rapper Nate Husser Drops Debut EP, “Geto Rock For The Youth”

Canadian rapper Nate Husser has received major attention as a member of his rap group The Posterz, but today (November 15) with the drop of his first solo EP Geto Rock For The Youth, his individuality shines. The project allows listeners to peek into his life through raw and gritty lyrics, accompanied by a mix of dark and aggressive lo-fi sounds. Geto Rock For The Youth is filled with introspective thoughts and stories from his youth to engage listeners.

The music video for Husser’s first single off the EP, “Catherine,” was shot by him — entirely on an iPhone. Simple clips of his family, treks through the Montreal streets, and his performances flash through as the song builds up.

Geto Rock For The Youth is a vibe, a feel, a genre, a lifestyle, a sound,” Nate explained via press release.

“The project is heavily influenced by my childhood in the 90s, growing up with no Hip Hop radio station in my city. But still, I had great times and the good vibes and feels I soaked up and that stuck with me from that time are what I wanted to translate thru this project. I’m just doin’ what artists are born to do: Creating. Me and the other members of The Posterz–we gotta learn to create in collaboration as well as by ourselves if we ever wanna be near as great as we all can be.”

Check out Nate Husser’s EP stream, cover art, and tracklist down below.
