:: After the whole drama between Tyga and Drake was unveiled in a recent Vibe interview, Young Money’s bossman Birdman decided to step in. During his stop at Hot 97′s radio show, the rapper said: “He might be in his feelings. And I got all love and respect for Tyga, that’s been my lil’ bro, but my intake is, I’m family oriented — either you in or you out. If you’re out, you’re an outcast to me. If you’re in, you’re family.” Well, that cleared everything up! [MTV]

Whoever wins it will be able to break the seal— or just let it be.” Okay…? [Pigeons & Planes]

Nicki Minaj’s “Only (feat. Chris Brown, Drake & Lil Wayne)”: Review Revue

To be fair, it wasn’t going to be easy for Nicki Minaj to trump her rump-shaking smash “Anaconda.” The hype for a follow-up to her Sir Mix-A-Lot-sampling hit was already at a fever pitch — but did she deliver with a worthy follow-up? Well.

The return-to-roots rap track “Only,” the third single off of the newly pushed-back The Pinkprint — certainly has its fair share of scandal-heavy lyrics worth talking about, as well as a simple, menacing beat courtesy of Dr. Luke. Was it enough to sway the critics — or the Twittersphere? Check out all the reviews, as well as some choice tweets, after the jump. More »

Nicki Minaj Teams Up With Lil Wayne, Drake & Chris Brown For “Only”: Listen

After taking over the charts with her massive, booty-loving single “Anaconda,” Nicki Minaj is back with a follow-up song — “Only.” It finds the rapper going back to her roots, and actually rapping. The opening line immediately tears down any rumors about her and the Young Money crew: “I never f*cked Wayne, I never f*cked Drake/ All my life man f*ck sake/ If I did I would menage with ‘em and let them eat my ass like a cupcake.” Well then!

The rapper continues to talk a lot of smack on the tune, while Chris Brown rushes in with the confident hook. Lil Wayne and Drake also provide explicit verses. It is all laid over a simple but menacing beat with pin-drop sound effects, courtesy of producer Dr. Luke.

“Only” is the third single off Nicki Minaj’s forthcoming third studio LP, The Pinkprint — which has been pushed back to a December 15 release date. Take a listen after the jump. More »

Drake Drops Three New Songs: “6 God,” “How Bout Now,” “Heat Of The Moment”

6 God

Drake has dropped three new songs ahead of his fourth album, Views from the 6. Like that title, which references the area codes of his hometown Toronto, each track considers his past to some degree. Take “6 God,” produced by Boi-1da and Syk Sense – even though he’s mostly exhibiting annoying movie star behavior, he references Toronto (“I’m not new to this, comin’ from the motherf—kin’ 6 side”) as if he wasn’t the city’s only reigning rap star.

As teased last week, the Boi-1da and Jordan Evans-helmed “How Bout Now” has Drake gloating to an ex, who used to listen to his older music but then ask if they can listen to Ludacris instead. As for the Noah “40” Shebib-produced “Heat of the Moment,” Drake lets a woman down gently, wishing they met when they were teens and he wasn’t so busy with work and world domination and all that: “All the schoolkids are so sick of books and reading / They don’t read anymore, they don’t even read anymore / They just want to be like all the rappers that I can’t stand.”

Whether these songs appear in Views from the 6 or not (Drake didn’t say), they’re still three new Drake songs – proof that, for all of his lyrical pettiness, the rapper’s quite generous to his fans. Hear them below. More »

See What May Be Rihanna’s Eighth Album Title, Tracklist And Release Date

Lost Files?

Rihanna‘s eighth album may arrive next month, if a leaked photo is to be believed.

Here’s the story: DJ Envy, co-host of Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, found what appears to be an official document from Rihanna’s label RocNation, detailing her new album. The title? Lost Files. The release date? November 25. The standard edition would feature 14 songs and appearances by Nicki Minaj, Drake, Big Sean and Eminem.

Other artists have talked about their involvement in Rihanna’s eighth album, the follow-up to 2012′s Unapologetic. DJ Mustard was the first to do so, back in January. As of late, though, the release still appeared to be a work in progress. Rihanna reunited with songwriter Ester Dean in the studio. Meanwhile, Charli XCX said that she was writing for the enduring pop star, too.

The most promising sign that the leaked photo is authentic is its mention of “Barz,” featuring Minaj. Last spring on social media, Rihanna teased the woeful lyrics: “Your silver tongue is full of lies, with tricks and thrills and Bambi eyes.” And after a thorough investigation, the Navy concluded that either The Pink Print star or Keri Hilson was involved.

Max Martin Hints At Katy Perry And Drake Collaboration

A ''Legendary'' Collab?

Pop super-producer Max Martin hints that Katy Perry and Drake may soon appear in a song together. MTV notes that the official website for his production company Maratone now lists a version of Perry’s song “Legendary Lovers” featuring Drake among his credits. Martin wrote and produced the song with the chanteuse, her longtime collaborator Bonnie McKee, Cirkut and Dr. Luke.

Legendary Lovers” is one of a few songs off Perry’s 2013 album, Prism, that are influenced by hip-hop. (Perhaps Drake will crib her flow from her sung-rap verses or pay off her vows to be a ride or die chick – who knows.) “Dark Horse” became an unexpected crossover hit for featured Three 6 Mafia ringleader Juicy J, while a “This Is What We Do” remix features rap’s most bizarre goofball RiFF RaFF.
