And we now have the tagless version of Will.I.Am‘s and Nicki Minaj‘s collaboration courtesy of Splash, who also says that this is a Will.I.Am track featuring the Barbie. This means that it won’t be on Nicki‘s upcoming Pink Friday album like we reported here. The song is called “Check It Out“, and we will update this post as soon as we get the dirty version. You can listen and download the record below, enjoy.
Check out the official music video for Lucci Lou‘s “Bitch I’m From New Orleans” record featuring Mack Maine and T@ above, which was directed by DJ Scoob Doo. The video was shot in different parts of the NO, and Lil Wayne, Lil Chuckee, Marley G, Birdman, Tez, Drake, Gudda Gudda, T-Streets and B.G. make cameos. Lucci‘s Mr. Pharmaceutical mixtape is coming soon, and you can download the audio to this song here!
Although a critically-acclaimed debut effort, survey said no. But Young Money CEO, Cortez Bryant—greatly responsible for molding Lil Wayne into a mega rapper-eating star— knows exactly what his winning artist was missing to reach Weezy numbers. “The first week was great but Drake still need that big smash pop hit like we had with Wayne’s ‘Lollipop.’” he says. “Wayne got his million because he had that urban side and he crossed over to that pop demographic. I believe Drake would’ve got those million sales if we would’ve had that pop record.”
So if “Over” was an appetite soother, “Find Your Love” an emo stunna and “Miss Me” a hip-hop head’s favorite, where does that leave Drake’s 4th upcoming single “Fancy?” ‘I don’t think ‘Fancy’ is that pop record either,” reveals Cortez. “It’ll go so far, but when we drop ‘Show Me A Good Time’ in September— that has the potential to be that big record.”
As far as Drake’s success beyond music for, Cortez hopes his Toronoto front runner can multiply his triumphs through film opps. “We wanna start entertaining these movie offers. Drake is looking to come out with the role no one else expects. He’s not gonna be the teen heartthrob or the college kid. He wants roles where he can show his acting skills. Like a sci-fi or action picture.” – VIBE
