Mariah Carey has teamed with French Montana and Justin Bieber at a Hollywood recording studio for a huge collaboration. Mariah and French were working with producer Eric Hudson at the Record Plant in Hollywood on Thursday (July 30) when Bieber just showed up, and wanted to pop in. According to TMZ, he told Mariah that he’s a huge fan, and she played him the song she’s working on, he loved the track and decided to contribute with some vocals. It’s unclear where their collaboration will end up, so stay tuned!
Meek Mill may end up in court or have to ante up some money because of an uncleared sample on his Drake diss track “Wanna Know.”
TMZ reports that the WWE is not happy that the Philadelphia rapper used The Undertaker’s ring entrance music in the song.
“WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we’re looking into the matter,” a spokesperson for the organization said.
Drake has fired another salvo in his feud with Meek Mill after that rapper called Drake’s “Charged Up” diss track “baby lotion soft.” Three days later, Drake has responded again with “Back to Back Freestyle,” and there’s nothing soft or vague about this diss track as the Toronto rapper lays into Meek Mill.
The cruelest barbs in “Back to Back Freestyle” come when Drake attempts to emasculate Meek Mill for serving as opening act for his girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint Tour. “You love her then you gotta give the world to her / Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more,” Drake says. (Incidentally, Meek Mill showed up 90 minutes late and was promptly booed when the Pinkprint Tour hit Drake’s native Toronto Tuesday night.)
Drake then takes aim at Meek Mill’s decision to beef through social media. “Trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers,” Drake raps. “You’re getting bodied by a singing nigga.” Drake then warns all his “boss bitches” – but likely Minaj especially – “make sure you hit him with a pre-nup.”
The feud between Drake and Meek Mill stems from Mill’s accusations that Drake employed a ghostwriter for his guest verse on “R.I.C.O.,” a track off Meek Mill’s new album Dreams Worth More Than Money. An Atlanta rapper named Quentin Miller was then identified as Drake’s ghostwriter, though Miller and Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib denied the ghostwriting allegations.
“When I look back, I might be mad that I gave this attention / But it’s weighing heavy on my conscience / And fuck, you left me with no options,” Drake says on the new track. “I’m not sure what it was that made y’all mad / But I guess this is what I gotta do to make y’all rap.”
Meek Mill previously shared his own Drake “diss track” titled “Beautiful Nightmare” which just featured 15 seconds of moaning.

“You gon’ make me buy bottles for Charlamagne” Drake – “Back to Back”

The war of words between Safaree Samuels and his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj is heating up.
SB just dropped a new diss track titled “Lifeline” going at both Nicki and her new boyfriend Meek Mill. He discredits his former lover’s pen game by claiming to have ghostwritten part of her album, The Pinkprint.
“Now that I’m gone, good luck with them punch lines,” SB spits.
However, his harshest lines were saved for Meek.
“This n*gga bent outta shape with a gorilla face/ My bars on The Pinkprint no one will ever match/ My d*ck print lil n*gga you could never match.”
According to Safaree, this all stems from the fact that Nicki and her new man are supposed to be happy together, but spend most of their time worried about him.

If Meek Mill was bothered by Drake’s new diss song aimed at him, he’s not showing it.

Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex is sitting dead in the middle of the Drake ghostwriting controversy. After leaking Quentin Miller’s reference track for “10 Bands” a couple of days ago, the DJ says there’s more where that came from.
