From October’s Very Own Blogspot:
My good friends,
It has truly been too long. I assume you’re all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don’t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn’t consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I’m excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn’t feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we’ve been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork…I think it’s safe to say we’re back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Drake drops his first single off of his new album in a pretty humble-like manner.
Details after the jump.
Waka Flocka Flame has replaced the Fozzie chain with a Foghorn Leghorn chain.
From the looks of this trailer it appears that Waka’s Round of Applause video will be a mini-movie with Drake playing the villian, perhaps.
Check out the official behind-the-scenes of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Round of Applause.” The video, shot in two parts in Los Angeles and Atlanta, was directed by Mr. Boomtown and features Basketball Wives LA cast member Draya.
Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family is due this spring. “Round of Applause” is currently available on iTunes: here
MP3: Common Stay Schemin Diss (via ddotomen)
The passive-aggressive fued between Drake and Common has finally boiled over to a tangible call-out. Common makes his own remix of Rick Ross’, French Montana and Drake’s “Stay Schemin” song that dropped Friday on Rick Ross’ new tape Rich Forever.
Basically, Drake’s verse on Stay Schemin’ was supposedly a subliminal response to Common’s Drake-baiting Sweet. Common ends his version with asking Drake to say his name with a Destiny Child sample.
Let’s hope some good records come out of two dudes that can get raw when motivated….

MP3: Mobb Deep- Conquer
I like Houston rap as much as the next guy. But sometimes a man enjoys Henroc out of a stryofoam cup instead of lean and sprite. Prodigy is home, and he is voting for Ron Paul like some sort of Q-Boro Vince Gallo. While I am not voting for Ron Paul this EP knocks.

MP3: Lil Wayne “It’s Good” Ft Drake & Jadakiss (Jay-z Diss)
Welp…on H-A-M Jay-z said, “I’m like really half a billi n*gga/ Really you got baby money/ Keep it real with n*ggas/ N*ggas ain’t got my lady money.”
Lil Wayne took it as a subliminal & took a subliminal shot at Jay-z on It’s Good off the Carter IV responding as such, “Talking about baby money/I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch/Get that how much you love your lady money/ I know you fake n*gga/ Press your breaks n*gga/ I’ll take you out/ thats a date n*gga.” Then later Wayne says, “throw that alley-oop to Drake Griffin”…
Something else to think about after the jump…
