Drake – “Fear” (Prod. by DJ Khalil)

September 5, 2009

Yesterday, I put up the 30 second snippet version to Drake’s latest joint, Fear, produced by DJ Khalil, and today, I am giving you all the full, CDQ version of the song. Off of his So Far Gone EP that will hit stores on the 15th, this track will lead us into his upcoming, debut album, Thank Me Later. Personally, I have hear Drake rap harder and better, but this track is worth the download and listen. Link below, so enjoy.

Video: Ross Applauds Eminem on “Forever” Verse

September 3, 2009

Though Rick Ross applauds Eminem for his verse on Forever with Drake, Kanye and Lil Wayne, Ross still wants to battle Em. Check out the clip below

When Rick Ross thinks about Eminem making a Mariah Carey dis record instead of responding to his jabs toward Slim Shady, the Miami Bawse just cracks up laughing. “You know what my thoughts are, man. We just laugh at it,” Ross told us recently in New Mexico.

“He’s smart,” Ross said about Eminem not addressing him and avoiding a rhyme battle. “That’s what I’m waiting for. That’ll be a gift — a great Christmas present for me. But y’all know what I think. I think everybody knows. It’s all ‘hood, man. Shout-out to Mariah Carey, she needs to reach out to me. We could eradicate some things.”

The vibe is not 100 percent antagonistic, however, when it comes to Ross’ thoughts on Marshall Mathers — he actually has some praise for Em’s latest verse.

“On a better note, I wanna shout out Eminem. I heard a record he did with Lil Wayne, Drake and Kanye West. Eminem, you’re smart. I understand … we all know what you doing now. You’re moving on to better things. Like I said, he might wanna do a record with me. We here. Triple Cs.”

Ross, the Carol City Cartel, Masspike Miles and the rest of his musical family are putting out their mixtape Maybach Music Part III: White Sand real soon. The title signifies that they started in the streets and are now indulging in the finer things in life. “We still on that hustle,” Ross said. “I’m hungry like a new artist. It’s a double disc of all new music as well as a DVD. It’s taking the street mixtapes to the next level.”

Triple Cs are filming the video for their first single, “Go,” with the Birdman featured in the production. The album Custom Cars and Cycles is due to drop this fall.

Just for the record, Eminem is top ever. Ross would get smashed to pieces, truthfully.

September 1, 2009

After a 30 second preview and an exclusive behind the scenes video, the official visuals to Drake and Trey’s collaborative joint, Successful, has finally released. Finally. I just wish we could get a video to a new song instead of one that was made almost a year ago. Nonetheless, I like this video, especially more than Best I Ever Had.

Drake x DJ Drama – “Interview” (8/27/09) [15 minutes]

August 31, 2009

The other day, Drake called in to chop with up with DJ Drama, covering issues about his favorite Forever verse, his upcoming knee surgery, mentions that he’s currently in LA working with Timbaland & Justin Timberlake, who he wants to work with for Thank Me Later, along with Jay-Z, Andre 3000 and Sade, the So Far Gone retail and more.

Courtesy of MTV’s Jayson Rodriguez:

“My favorite line on the song, though, is when Wayne says, ‘Life is such a roller coaster and then it drops/ but what should I scream for, this is my theme park.’ That right there, word-play-wise, that’s my favorite. But everybody does their thing. Kanye does Kanye. Eminem raps in a way where nobody might have heard him rap in a long time and says some things that are great for his fans to hear. I’m just proud to even be on the record. People are telling me they like my verse. I’m just happy I held my own.”

So that record [potentially with Andre 3000 and Sade] is something important to me. Obviously [I’m gonna work with] Wayne. I’m out here really trying to get something special with Justin. Hovito [Jay-Z], we might need to get him. The track on this album was a real catchy joint. But people wanna hear us rap together. That’s one of my goals, to have that track with me and Jay. Maybe don’t even have a hook, maybe. Have just like you haven’t heard him in a minute, just going bars for bars. That might be something you’ll hear on the album.”

Video: Mary J. Blige x Drake – “The One”

August 30, 2009

And we finally get a visual to Mary J. Blige’s collaborative joint with Toronto’s own, Drake. Though the song is not a favorite of mine coming from Mary’s camp, Drake did do his thing on his verse and in the video. Thoughts?
