Drake Is Reportedly Dropping a Surprise Project Tonight | Rap-Up

The 6 God is reportedly dropping a new project called Dark Lane Demo Tape tonight. On Thursday, fans noticed that several new tracks started to appear on music ID platform Shazam, with titles such as “From Florida With Love,” “Landed,” and “Time Flies.”

The project will reportedly consist of 13 tracks, including collaborations with Future and Young Thug (“D4L”), Chris Brown (“Not You Too”), and his long-awaited collaboration with Playboi Carti (“Pain 1993”). His chart-topping hit “Toosie Slide” and the previously-released “Chicago Freestyle” and “When to Say When” also appear on the tracklist compiled by fans.

Drake previewed his collaborations with Playboi Carti and Fivio Foreign during OVO Mark’s Instagram Live earlier this month, while “Desires” with Future was leaked by Drake himself in January.

It appears that the project is a mixtape to hold fans over until he drops the official follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion. “Album’s on the way, ’bout to slap head tops off,” he said during OVO Mark’s livestream.

Drake has yet to comment on the rumored project, but all signs point to new music.

Drake Breaks The Record For Most Billboard Hot 100 Hits Of All Time | Genius

Drake is now the biggest artist of all time by one measure of popularity. The rapper’s Lil Yachty and DaBaby collaboration, “Oprah’s Bank Account,” debuted at No. 89 today on the Hot 100 chart. This marks his 208th entry on the chart, and helping him officially surpass the cast of Glee to become the artist with the most Hot 100 hits in history.

He tied the record back in January with the Future collaboration, “Life is Good.” Drake’s first Hot 100 entry came on May 23, 2009, when “Best I Ever Had” debuted at No. 92. The OVO rapper’s mentor Lil Wayne still stands at No. 3, one spot ahead of Elvis Presley.

BREAKING: Drake’s Alleged Ghostwriter Quentin Miller Found Murdered; Drake Responsible?

TORONTO – A few days after Meek Mill hinted that a man, by the name of Quentin Miller, was Drake’s ghostwriter and the man behind Drake’s hits, Quentin Miller was found murdered in his home.

There is no doubt that the rap game is a dirty game, but is it really this dirty? The mysterious name Quentin Miller has been trending since Meek Mill’s “Quentin Miller” tweet. Hip-Hop fans have been asking themselves the same questions: Is Meek Mill right? Who is Quentin Miller? Does he write ALL of Drake’s songs? Is he the actual soft one and not Drake? The exposure of Quentin Miller was surely dangerous for not only Drake and OVO, but Quentin Miller himself. Meek had revealed too much information.

Authorities discovered Quentin Miller’s corpse in his Toronto home Friday Morning. Quentin had been killed “execution-style”, according to police. “Similar to the way Drake was shot in Degrassi” says FBI agent Ana Duncan “We were able to determine how the murder happened with evidence we found. We concluded that Quentin was running away from the gunman as he was shot in the back. It was way too similar to the way they shot Drake in Degrassi, which was the reason for him being in a wheelchair; And for that reason, we are sure Drake had something to do with the murder” finished Duncan.

Authorities are soon to investigate Drake and his OVO crew for clues of who could have ordered and carried out the murder. Authorities strongly believe it was Drake who ordered the murdered. Authorities are also giving warnings about Drake, telling people to not let his alleged soft personality fool you because of his music, and that he is actually a cold-hearted mafia-like Don.

Birdman Admits Lil Wayne Is a Homosexual Who Is In Love With Drake (The Reason Why Drake Wrote “Doing It Wrong”)

NEW ORLEANS – In the wake of the Lil Wayne and Birdman drama, Birdman has publicly admitted that rapper Lil Wayne is a homosexual, presuambly an attempt to ruin the image of the Young Money rapper.

After the news circulated that Birdman was holding back Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter 5” album for unknown reasons, Lil Wayne announced that he felt like a “prisoner” to Birdman’s label and that he wanted “out” of Cash Money Records. The feud is expected to heat even more now that it has been announced that Lil Wayne is Suing Cash Money Records for $51 Million and has asked a judge to declare him the joint copyright holder of everything released on his Cash Money imprint, Young Money, including recordings by Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Now that Birdman has admitted that Lil Wayne is actually a homosexual and that all the songs where he is speaking sexually of women is actually a cover up for his true sexuality and simply to sell his music, as women have always been popular topics for music. Birdman also revealed that Lil Wayne wanted a relationship with him and Canadian rapper Drake, and that the song “Doing It Wrong” on Drake’s second studio album “Take Care” is actually about Lil Wayne and how he cannot be in a homosexual relationship with him. ” He gay as hell”, says Birdman, “He tried to be with me, drake, and even the boy rick ross, but he was after drake more than everybody else and Drake actually wrote the song “Doing It Wrong” for him, cause he ain’t wanna be with him” finished Birdman.

Birdman has also admitted that he himself use to be bi-sexual and then realized he was actually straight as “the mind plays tricks on people”, according to Birdman. Lil Wayne has yet to respond to the homosexual accusations, boy is this feud getting worse and worse everyday.

‘If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late’ Was a Turning Point For Drake | Complex

Leading up to the release of If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, Drake was fed up. Feeling disrespect from competitors and boxed in by some as a “soft” artist, he made his feelings clear with a surprise 17-song pack of clapbacks on February 13, 2015, five years ago today. His resentment helped usher in a darker and more edgy era for Drake that persists to this day.

Drake’s frustrations had been brewing for a couple years. He had already been a chart-topping success, but the numbers meant little without respect. On his previous solo project, 2013’s Nothing Was the Same—released in the same year that J. Cole, JAY-Z, and Kanye West all dropped new albums—Drake addressed the audacity of not being acknowledged as one of the greats at the end of “Pound Cake,” when he rapped, “Look, fuck all that ‘Happy to be here’ shit that y’all want me on/I’m the big homie, they still be tryna lil bro me, dog/ Like I should fall in line, like I should alert niggas/When I’m ’bout to drop somethin’ crazy/And not say I’m the greatest of my generation.” When 2014 came around, he dropped “0 to 100/ The Catch Up.” On the second half of the song, he vowed to stop overthinking what the world wanted from him, and pledged to run up the score on his competition when he raps, “Maybe I’m searchin’ for the problems/Askin’ what was said and who was involved/Too focused on people’s feedback and provin’ ’em wrong/They say the shoe can always fit, no matter whose foot it’s on/These days feel like I’m squeezin’ in ’em/Whoever wore ’em before just wasn’t thinkin’ big enough/I’m ’bout to leave ’em with ’em.”

Before the tape dropped, his beefs with P. Diddy (which resulted in a melee at the club) and Tyga, who called out Drake for being “fake” in an interview with VIBE, forced The Boy to start seeing himself as the villain. This is how the story usually goes for villains; they feel so disrespected that their retaliation becomes inevitable. Drake fed into the hate and used the release of If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late in 2015 to air out his grievances. He was tired of being the nice guy from the Take Care days.

He came in ready to talk his shit on IYRTITL. “Legend” was a pump fake, hinting at the old Drake who would approach each song with a dulcet vibratos, but the following song, “Energy,” set the tone for the rest of the tape (and frankly, the next few years). It’s a combative song with lines like, “I got enemies, got a lot of enemies/Got a lot of people tryna drain me of my energy/They tryna take the wave from a nigga/ Fuckin’ with the kid and pray for your nigga,” that presents a mood the world wasn’t completely used to hearing from Drake yet. His stance was firm, revealing that he had a lot of feelings bottled up. The first few years of his career surely led to shaking hands and policting, but he rapped with commitment of faking no more. 

The production on IYRTITL—mostly handled by PARTYNEXTDOOR, Boi-1da, 40, WondaGurl, Sevn Thomas, and Frank Dukes—was stripped back, allowing Drake’s aggressive messages to take center stage. He was rapping as raw and unfiltered as he wanted to, without the subconscious awareness that his songs needed to chart or sell. This is also reflected on the sinister “No Tellin.” Maybe he wasn’t responding to Kendrick’s verse on “Control,” but he sure was coming for other rapper’s necks: “All the rappers that you vouch for/Need to get out of the house more, they washed up/ And even if the team was religious with it I can’t really see another squad tryna’ cross us, naw.”

Drake was on a clear mission to let the world know that he was untouchable, and didn’t care for other opinions about it. To quote a line from his mentor Lil Wayne at the top of “Star67,” Drake came into the studio with clips for everyone who ever questioned his skill and character. He dabbled in a little bit of “old Drake” on songs like “Preach,” but even then, his new mentality rung out in lyrics like, “Niggas is all in they feelings these days/All in they feelings these days/ But hearing a scripture with that many 6s, you should be afraid.”

He ended the mixtape with “6PM In New York,” and the hook-less outro works as Drake’s retirement speech from his old self. He uses the song to address his beef with Tyga (“I heard a lil, lil homie talking reckless in Vibe/That’s quite a platform you chose, you should’ve kept it inside/Oh, you tried? It’s so childish calling my name on the world stage/ You need to act your age and not your girl’s age”) and taunts the world with a thought that he rightfully deserved to sit on the throne next to guys like Kanye and JAY-Z. “Yeah, boy, you rappin’ like you seen it all/You rappin’ like the throne should be the three of y’all,” he raps to himself in third person, referencing JAY-Z’s verse on Young Jeezy’s “Seen It All.”

The release of If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late was a hot boiling confessional for Drake. He let out some momentary steam, only to start cooking again a few months later. To be a Drake fan for the rest of the year, was like watching Thanos collect all of the infinity stones. His beef with Meek Mill that summer afforded him the Power stone. When Meek Mill accused Drake of using Quentin Miller as his ghostwriter on “R.I.C.O.” and not posting his album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, he came for Drake’s head in a number of now-deleted tweets. Straight up, Meek caught a hot-headed Drake at the wrong time. Drake addressed the issues in a quick two-piece that brought us “Charged Up” and the Grammy-nominated “Back to Back.” His win was lopsided, and further proved that the new Drake was just as sharp in battle as he was on a studio project. Instead of letting the heat burn him down as it once did, any time a new issue arrived, it was like adding gasoline to his fire. 

When he dropped What A Time To Be Alive that summer with Future, Drake’s unapologetically rough side was validated. At this point, he had been at it for months and kept his energy consistent since IYRTITL. The theme of that tape was no gimmick—it was Drake’s new world to play in. 

For a brief four minutes at the end of What A Time To Be Alive, on “30 for 30,” Drake sent a eulogy to his old self again. “Used to give no reaction, now I’m overreacting,” he rapped. A few drama-filled years resulted in an eternal irreparable mood that he accepted for himself. “Drastically changin’, thank you for all your patience/I’m just in a different space and I choose to embrace it,” he continued. 

Over the next few years, Drake would operate with an all-time high success rate. He became the Drake who bulked up physically and grew out his facial hair; the Drake who rapped with street codes to show that he wasn’t as soft as the suburbs he shot Degrassi in; the Drake who had so much firepower and confidence that he could cross over into latin trap, afrobeats, and U.K. drill. He became the Drake who learned how to feed off of hate, disrespect, and anger, instead of being defeated by the mounting pressure. This can all be traced back to the time in 2015 when Drake had enough.
