Diddy has shared two new songs called “Bad Boy Watcha Gon’ Do? Dre Day” and “Watcha Gon’ Do.” They both feature Rick Ross and post humous contributions from Biggie. Listen below. The two tracks surfaced before Diddy’s takeover on tonight’s episode of Drake’s OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1 Apple Music. Diddy’s last release was his 2015 mixtape MMM (Money Making Mitch). Last year, he shared the music video for “You Could Be My Lover,” his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign and Gizzle off the project. Diddy recently shared his Bad Boy Entertainment documentary, Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: The Bad Boy Story on Apple Music. It premiered earlier this year at Tribeca Film Festival.

In the game of life, Meek Mill doesn’t do draws. The hip-hop artist just dropped Wins & Losses (via Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records), his third album and first since 2015’s Dreams Worth More Than Money, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The LP represents the Philadelphia native “breaking down the wins and losses of my life. It’s all about what molded me into being Meek Mill today and the trials and tribulations of my life that made me bigger and better,” he says in the blurb accompanying the new release.
French Montana’s last attempt to release an album didn’t go as planned as Mac & Cheese 4 sprung an early leak thanks to Target, and was eventually scrapped entirely by the label, before being re-released as a mixtape back in November. But now, following the success of his hit single with Swae Lee called “Unforgettable,” French Montana & his label decided it was finally time to release an official studio album called Jungles Rules.
Laced with 18 tracks in total, the project guest appearances from The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Swae Lee, Future, Quavo, Pharrell, Young Thug, T.I., Chinx, & the incarcerated Max B, among others. Meanwhile production is handled by the likes of Harry Fraud, Ben Bllions, Detail, Alex Lustig, and more.
Available now on iTunes, fans can stream the project in its entirety via Apple Music. Hit play and let us know what record you’re feeling the most? (We’ll update you with the Spotify stream once available shortly)

From Snapchat to Instagram, DJ Khaled has used different modes of social media to question the whereabouts of Drake’s vocals. Well, it’s time to call off the search party because the Toronto native’s lyrical contribution has been found.
As the sun rose on Monday morning (June 5), DJ Khaled released his latest single, “To The Max,” which precedes the release of his tenth studio album, Grateful (June 23). Just like the artwork for the track, Khaled’s baby boy and executive producer Asahd graces his father’s album cover like a pro in a jacuzzi.
Right in time for the summer, Drizzy and the We The Best captain encourage you to get your footwork in order while rapping tales of trials and tribulations. “Got it on the dresser/ I’ve been under pressure/ They wanna see me laid out on a stretcher/ Gotta keep my head up,” Drake raps.
Kendrick Lamar dropped the presumptive first single — titled “Humble” — from his highly anticipated forthcoming album on Thursday night.
Watch video below:
The song, less exploration of contrition on the part of Lamar than an instruction to his peers, picks up a thread NPR Music first examined following that album teaser: how the “best rapper alive” might explore the theme of God, religion and personal growth. (In the previous non-album single, “The Heart Part 4,” Lamar stuck to a similar narrative: “Tell ’em that God comin’.”)
The video was directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies, the former responsible for innumerable iconic music videos himself, the latter for several Top Dawg Entertainment videos, including Lamar’s most notable. Together, they produced a PSA featuring the rapper and Barack Obama last year.
Lamar opens his first verse with the rhyme “Wicked or weakness, you gotta see this,” and truer words haven’t been spoken this year. “Humble” is packed with heavy allusions and striking imagery: Kendrick in Jesus’ seat at The Last Supper, Kendrick in a sea of black heads, Kendrick passing the Grey Poupon.
The video is a gorgeous volley, and Lamar raps in a consistently clipped, monotonic manner. It’s no wonder that in its first 90 minutes on YouTube, “Humble” generated nearly 500,000 views on YouTube.
His fourth album, still untitled, is expected to be released April 7.
As the song begins, Blige delivers her message over a building piano melody until dramatic horns introduce the beat drop. West comes in halfway through the track, laying down a verse that speaks to the brutality surrounding the African-American community, and his personal responsibility to make a difference (“I decided not to use my color as a handicap,” he begins, later rapping, “I cannot be complacent / In my job, be courageous”).
After using her pre-Kanye verses to tell fans that she’s been through a lot herself — but has found strength and purpose through her struggles — Blige closes out the song by reminding fans that loving themselves can get them through the darkest of times. “God knows that you’re worth it / You deserve it, can’t nothin’ else hurt you.”
Remy Ma has taken a page out of Drake’s book, hitting her rival Nicki Minaj with back-to-back diss tracks.
“Another One” comes five days after Remy torched the Hip Hop mediascape with “SHETHER,” a seven-minute tidal wave of insults and accusations that set off ripples all over the culture.
Funk Flex debuted the track during his show on Hot 97 after finding it in his inbox.
#MusicStillMatters New Music: @RealRemyMa – Another One (Nicki Minaj Diss)
— Funk Flex !!!!! (@funkflex) March 3, 2017
This second song isn’t as long — or as controversially specific — as the first one, instead focusing on Minaj’s failure to respond with a verse of her own. “Where the fuck is your song? I mean, come on/ You know the plug with some bars, I’m Remy Ma,” she raps.
Throughout the track, she references DMX and Lil Yachty (though without any claims that Nicki had sex with either of them) and also manages to include a reference to the viral star who just won’t go away, Danielle “cash me outside, how bout dat” Bregoli.
Remy also hints at having more ammo in the clip in the form of some kind of embarrassing video footage of Minaj, rapping that “they was sellin’ footage and you know I bought it.”
Trey Songz has tackled the music industry and Hollywood selling over 20 million albums and singles throughout his career and starring in blockbuster films including Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, but now he’s up against his biggest obstacle: finding love. Hosted by Draya Michele and Steelo Brim, seventeen lucky ladies compete against one another to win the heart of “Mr. Steal Your Girl” on his new reality show Tremaine the Playboy.
Trey is Tremaine, the latest eligible bachelor on a conquest to find his perfect match. It’s all fun and dancing at the opening rose ceremony, but as soon as love hits the fan, other emotions run wild. Finding love is a tricky beast to tackle, especially in a house full of singles trying to win over the R&B heartthrob.
To celebrate #14DaysOfLove, VH1 is teaming up with Trey Songz to offer fans a first-look at his wild pursuit to find his soulmate in the ridiculous supertrailer for Tremaine the Playboy below. Following the exclusive look on VH1 digital platforms, episodes of Tremaine the Playboy will continue to air on TremaineThePlayboy.com
As part of VH1’s #14DaysOfLove, a celebration with over 200 hours of love-themed series and movies counting down until Valentine’s Day, Songz will also sit down with host Amber Rose to introduce the world to the next eligible bachelor, and she holds nothing back. From finding out what Tremaine looks for in a woman to an intense game of “Never Have I Ever,” Rose is on a mission to find out who “Tremaine the Playboy” really is.
Fabolous and Lil Uzi Vert have to sort out a classic case of switcheroo in their video for “Goyard Bag,” as one designer duffle gets swapped out for another. Fab plays a boss posted up in a motel room waiting to make a deal, but when the other side comes though what they think is a bag full of cash actually contains women’s clothes.
Directed by Gerard Victor and Spike Jordan, the visual ends with Fab and Uzi in some remote location burning a whip to the ground. “Goyard Bag” samples Outkast’s “Liberation” and was first featured on Fab’s Summertime Shootout 2 mixtapeback in September. He repurposed it as a single earlier this month.
In January, Fab dropped a mixtape with Trey Songz titled Trappy New Years and is preparing another joint project with Jadakiss titled Freddy Vs. Jason. The two punchline experts dropped a trailer for that project in January, as well releasing “Rapture” feat Tory Lanez.
Fab recently assured fans that the collab project with the LOX member is really happening, but has yet to give a concrete release date. “Freddy Vs. Jason is on the way,” he said in a interview with Bay Area radio station Power 106 KMEL in December. “We were tryna put it out next month in January, but we gonna drop something to go into it.”
