About 10:50 into this interview, DJ Whoo Kid asks Quavo and Takeoff if they would be down to work with Nas. They respond that they would, but they would want him to spit that “Ether” rather than try to flip the trademark Migos flow. I think we can all agree that would be the way to go. Which has me thinking, damn, what would that song sound like? Your move Nasir.
They also talk about the new album, groupies, working with Lil Wayne and the unreleased music they did and more.
About 10 minutes into this interview on the Rise & Grind Morning Show on Philly’s Power 99, Cube reveals that Dr. Dre will be releasing an album that is inspired by NWA and the new film Straight Outta Compton on August 1st. According to him it will feature new, previously unheard music and “it’s what everybody’s been waiting for” from the good doctor.
Joining Cube in the studio are SOC director F. Gary Gray, his son O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Jason Mitchell, the actor who portrays Eazy-E. They speak variously on the struggle to get the film funded and made, the amount of facetime MC Ren and DJ Yella get in the movie, Cube’s messy exit from the group in the early 90′s, filming in Compton and South Central, Suge Knight and much more.
Last night Meek Mill pulled a fast one on the entire Rap Internet when he failed to deliver a response to Drake’s “Charged Up” after Funkmaster Flex stated outright that he’d be playing a new Meek record during his 7:00 pm show on Hot 97. The reaction from angry fans hungry for some good old fashioned Rap beef was swift and relentless. Meek took a loss. Flex took a loss. Stop fucking tweeting and talking shit on stage Meek and drop a song.
On his show this morning, Ebro revealed that it was Meek and his camp that didn’t come through. Flex was promised a song and pumped up the reponse record accordingly, beleiving he’d have something to play last night. The song never came. Ebro speculates that maybe Meek was just trying to poke Drake and see how he would react, but that can’t be it, can it? This isn’t Meek’s first day at Rap camp. He has to understand how this would look to the public.
Particularly in the age of social media, you don’t get to just pull shit like this and think it’s gonna fly. Memes will be generated. Thinkpieces will be written. You will be called out as scared, unprepared or both. Or maybe your girl, a good friend of your new nemesis, stepped in and shut shit down? The fact is, we won’t know until Meek either speaks on it or makes the reasons irrelevant by dropping a record. Drop that record Meek.
“You media clowns don’t never acknowledge lyrcists anyway, so why are we talking about this now?”
Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9 and KXNG Crooked sit down with Ebro and Rosenberg to pump their new album, Glasshouse. They also speak extensively on the whole Meek Mill/Drake, “10 Bands” ghostwriting controversy, whether or not you can be considered in the GOAT conversation if somebody has penned rhymes for you and the general lack of bars in modern day Rap.
