Status Ain’t Hood: The Developing Drake/Meek Mill Soap Opera

Drake is rap’s biggest star and probably its most compelling figure, too. He’s effectively remade the whole idea of the rap star, turning the center of the genre away from hungry street-rap and toward this sonically manicured, stylistically cosmopolitan sound that currently dominates. He’s someone who’s constantly thinking about his own persona and about the… More »

Drake – “Back To Back Freestyle”

Drake responded to Meek Mill’s ghostwriting allegations over the weekend with “Charged Up,” perhaps the floatiest diss track in rap history. Funkmaster Flex promised he’d have Meek Mill’s response track Monday night on Hot 97, but all that materialized that evening was 15 seconds of Meek cackling, which made Flex somewhat of a laughingstock and… More »

Quentin Miller: I Am Not Drake’s Ghostwriter

Meek Mill set off a bomb this week when he went on a tweet-rampage alleging that Drake does not write his own raps. Reaction has been strong from factions arguing that (a) it isn’t true, (b) it doesn’t matter if it’s true, (c) Drake should be ashamed if it’s true, or some popcorn-popping combination thereof.

The Week In Pop: Rachel Platten Feels The Power Of The Taylor Swift Bump

Last year, when the likes of “Trophies,” “0 To 100,” and “How ‘Bout Now” proved Drake could score a massive radio hit simply by uploading a song to SoundCloud, Gawker’s Jordan Sargent proclaimed him “the Taylor Swift of rap.” Sargent’s thesis was that in an environment where even established stars have trouble getting heavily promoted… More »

Status Ain’t Hood: Meek Mill Is Extremely Good At Rapping

Rap music is too vast and overwhelming a thing for any one song to encapsulate all the multitudes it contains. But if I had to pick one song that best encapsulates what circa-now rap music can be, that song would probably be “Dreams And Nightmares (Intro),” the breathless track that opened Meek Mill’s 2012 album… More »

Dreams Worth More Than Money, the second proper album from Philadelphia rap destroyer Meek Mill, was supposed to come out last year.
