hodgy beats tyler the creator

It’s obvious that Odd Future aren’t as tight as they once were, and this year’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, which took place at the LA Coliseum over the weekend, confirmed that there is indeed beef brewing within the group. Hodgy Beats, who has been noticeably detached in recent years, let his feelings towards Tyler, The Creator be known during Saturday night’s performance, before elaborating on social media.

young thug beef

It appears there’s some sibling rivalry brewing between Young Thug and Future. Metro Boomin, the young producer who has worked extensively with both rappers, got a few tweets off his chest yesterday regarding Future’s memorable mixtape run and other artists supposedly jacking the idea. “Moral of the story is, putting out 5 tapes in a year won’t make you heat up like Future,” he wrote. “That was just his path. It’s not for everyone.”

Young Thug, who has released three projects so far this year, clearly took exception to Metro’s comments by calling him out on Twitter early this morning. He also threw shade at Future, who he referred to as the Tito to his Michael Jackson (ouch). Neither Metro nor Future have yet to respond, but we hope the three of them can work this out, otherwise we can kiss goodbye to that Metro Thuggin project we’ve all been looking forward to.

UPDATE: Good news: Young Thug says he has no beef with Future.

As expected, Drake’s “Hotline Bling” music video took social media by storm after its release on Tuesday night. Hours after it debuted on Apple Music, artist D.R.A.M. took to Twitter to express some frustration over the song. D.R.A.M., who was performing in Toronto on Chance the Rapper’s “Family Matter” tour when Drake’s music video dropped, tweeted that the OVO rapper jacked his “Cha Cha” summer banger to create “Hotline Bling.”

After my performance all I’m seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline,” tweeted D.R.A.M. shortly after Drake’s video released. “Ni**as want to know how I feel about that… Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record…But I’m GOOD.” Premiered back in July on OVO Sound Radio, many listeners, websites and Beats 1 presumed “Hotline Bling” a remix of D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha.” Produced by Nineteen85, Drake’s catchy dance single now sits at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, on the brink of becoming the Canadian rapper’s first-ever No. 1 record.

Do both sound the same? Check out D.R.A.M.’s full comments below.

Our friends at the FADER are pulling out all the stops for their 100th issue. The first cover-story reveal is Drake, possibly his best-looking portrait (I mean, there have been some odd ones over the years), and an interesting look into arguably the biggest “rap” star during one of his most active periods. The story opens up with Serena Williams fans blaming him for her U.S. Open loss, moves onto Drake’s action-packed summer of Meek beef and Future bromance…and gives some insight into the imminent ‘Views From The 6′ album which still has no set release date.

The FADER also reminds us that this is Drake’s first in-depth interview since he quit the media in 2014 amidst the backlash of his refreshingly abrasive Rolling Stone feature.
Along with incredible detail and observation from writer Leon Neyfakh, there are also some beautiful photos by Mark Peckmezian that show a different side of hip hop’s most meme-ingful star.
Really well done.

Twitter is synonymous with twisted up panties, in that the twittersphere loves to lock arms and rage en masse when faced with a reason to be mad…sometimes that reason is real, sometimes it’s conflated. Today’s twitter scandal is a bit of both.
