“The narrative is becoming a little unfair right now. I’m in a boxing ring with one person. I came as one person. I never asked Puff to retweet a thing. I never asked any of my celebrity friends to get on my side. I never asked them to comment under my pictures – I never asked for none of that. I stepped in a boxing ring by myself in which I was evoked to do and I just stepped up. And here is this audience throwing banana peels while I’m fighting – you fake edited boos into a performance of me performing ‘Rap Devil.’ Not only did I not get booed but every time for the last two weeks, Michigan included, I step out in the crowd after that song plays and walk through the entire arena. There is a video of this every single day and I have one person with me walking through. I give 10,000 people a chance everyday to do what they want to do, say what they wanna say, it’s me and one dude. I’ve done this for two weeks. You can’t edit the narrative to be what it’s not. I’ve seen fake edited ghostwriting credits. What are we doing? Your boy got – his knees are weak. You gotta stop it. I even see today, [‘Killshot’] is the most popular video on YouTube. Everyone wants to tune in. The legend just got punched in the mouth.” (“The Breakfast Club”)

YouTube said “Killshot” also had the third-highest debut of any song in the site’s history, and the track is on top of the site’s US trending chart. (Business Insider)
“I actually came to Miami when he [Drake] was working on his album. I just played him my music from my album, and he heard “No Stylist” and fell in love with it and he was like ‘this is the one you and me should come out with’. I remember I came to Miami, it was me, him and Bad Bunny. We was at my boy Dave’s place, a bunch of ladies, a bunch of you know Miami vibes. You know Miami vice vibes. … I be trying to catch him, he on the road I be on the road but every time we get tougher we gotta make sure we do at least one that’s gonna be classic you know for the youth out there. Show that bond cause I knew my brother since I started, he was on my first single “Pop That” and before that he was on “Stay Schemin’” with me and [Rick] Ross so it’s like when we make music it’s more of a brothership. I mean with people like us at this level of our career like we don’t do stuff for money anymore.” (Beats 1)
“See it’s this thing with me being from the Bronx, where hip-hop started the mecca of hip-hop, I always felt like it got overlooked when it came to fashion. And I feel like people that changed fashion was the icons that we looked up to like Slick Rick when he came out with 40 chains on all the vintage looks and even brings it up to date. When Cam’ron came out with the pink Mink and everybody you know it’s just people that changed culture because everybody thinks if you go to Fashion Week you know how to dress. That’s not, there’s ninety nine point nine people out there that don’t go to Fashion Week they could dress better than anybody on that runway. We want to give that dope boy on the corner.” (Beats 1)

Hip-hop heavyweights Thundamentals – Tuka, Jeswon and DJ Morgs – bring you their fifth album, ‘I Love Songs’, their most progressive full-length yet.
Fans of the group will be familiar with their frequent political commentary, but in the midst of an increasingly turbulent society, Thundamentals have decided to focus their album on what’s been lost amongst the chaos: Love. As a result, ‘I Love Songs’ is an intensely personal listen, focusing on love in its varying forms, and showing Thundamentals’ undeniable writing ability in a more intimate light.
With the subject matter at hand, it’s no surprise that this is Thundamentals’ most effortless album, and their quickest to complete. ‘I Love Songs’ explores the isolation and broken romances that happen behind the scenes, away from the sold-out crowds and star-studded festivals. It’s an album of stark contrast, and brutally honest introspection that yearns for something more.

Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne didn’t drop a highly-anticipated Tha Carter V album at midnight last night but he’s not the one to blame. New reports claim Weezy F. Baby never intended or confirmed a September 21 drop date.
The hype started after Floyd Mayweather posted the album cover on Instagram earlier this month and captioned it “[Goat emoji] #21.” That led everyone to believe the album was dropping at midnight on September 21. But when midnight came and went … fans were left scratching their heads, especially after Floyd deleted the post. James Harden followed suit with “#13” and also deleted it. Point is … Wayne said zilch about Sept. 21. The wait continues … (TMZ)
