Just one month after dropping his second pop-punk album, Mainstream Sellout, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, MGK declared his retirement from rock music.

Machine Gun Kelly said in a recent interview on the Audacy Check-In podcast with Kevan Kenney that his upcoming album would be a return to hip-hop.

“I am going to make a rap album for myself,” said Colson. “For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder. It’s just like, if I keep doing things to prove things to people, I am gonna one, drive myself crazy and two, not make a great product. I made Tickets and Mainstream Sellout because I wanted to make them. I need to now also make people miss that sound.”

The 32-year-old musician continued:

“I am going to do this tour and I am gonna step into where I left Hotel Diablo and expand on my storytelling as a rapper and find a new innovative sound for the hip-hop Machine Gun Kelly and that is where my excitement is and that’s like where me as a music archaeologist wants to explore.”

Pusha T on Drake throwing subs at him : “I don’t do subliminals anymore” https://hiphopfreaks.com/2022/04/27/pushat-reatcs-drake-diss/ https://hiphopfreaks.com/2022/04/27/pushat-reatcs-drake-diss/#respond Wed, 27 Apr 2022 19:18:05 +0000 https://hiphopfreaks.com/?p=12206 Pusha T returned with his new album ‘It’s Almost Dry’ just last Friday which is the GOOD Music president’s fourth studio album.

Pusha T returned with his new album ‘It’s Almost Dry’ just last Friday which is the GOOD Music president’s fourth studio album. Push has been going on interviews for the promotion of his album.

On his latest stop at Breakfast Club Pusha T was asked if Ye and Drake’s most recent linkup at Larry Hoover Concert made him squash beef with Drake as well, to which Push made it clear he’s still “outside”. After that, the conversation went further based on the recent surfaced collaboration between Jack Harlow and Drake , where Drake seemingly is aiming at Push once again.

urges for revenge are uncontrollable/I know we’re gettin’ older though, yeah/But I gotta get a nigga back for that/It’s non-negotiable, it’s not even debatable” rapped Drake in his verse. While these bars can be about anyone his next lines Drake makes some direct references to Pusha T , “All I hear is plug talk comin’ from middleman” and “If I see ya’, I spit in ya’ faces, ha-tu/Daytonas with the green faces”.

Pusha T responded to these alleged shots at him in the interview “It sounds like old to me , flow sound old. Even what is considered like shots, bro after what i’ve done..like the middleman talk and all.. is not scathing to me I’m down to burn everything” He also adds “Bro I’m not subliminal with anybody anymore”.

After Pusha T fired with ‘Story Of Adidon’ , Drake chose not to release his response to Pusha as he told LeBron James during a a chat in 2018  “I have this sort of chink in my armor for the rest of time to a rap purist.Which is fine, I can live with that. I would much rather live with that than the things that I was about to say”

Jack Harlow  and Drake’s leaked song is expected to be included in Harlow’s upcoming album “Come Home The Kids , Missed You” arriving on May 6.

Daylyt says Kendrick Lamar might be killed for one of the songs from his upcoming album https://hiphopfreaks.com/2022/04/23/daylyt-kendrick-lamar-upcoming-song-tweet/ https://hiphopfreaks.com/2022/04/23/daylyt-kendrick-lamar-upcoming-song-tweet/#respond Sat, 23 Apr 2022 12:50:16 +0000 https://hiphopfreaks.com/?p=12196 As fans who have been waiting for a long time for Kendrick Lamar’s fifth studio album have gotten a release date through Kendrick himself, now we are getting little tidbits about the album titled “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” i.e. scheduled to arrive on]]>

As fans who have been waiting for a long time for Kendrick Lamar’s fifth studio album have gotten a release date through Kendrick himself, now we are getting little tidbits about the album titled “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” i.e. scheduled to arrive on 13th of May.

Daylyt who is a battle rapper himself and a well-known associate of Top Dawg Ent fam has taken to Twitter a few hours ago to share his reactions after allegedly listening to one of the tracks from “Mr. Morale & Big Stepper”. Daylyt wrote that he has heard a song from Big Steppa and they may kill him (Kendrick) for this. He also followed the tweet with another one “Protect Kendrick at all cost..he going out with bang”.

Kendrick isn’t much stranger to receiving outrageous reactions from the public for his songs, many will remember Kendrick’s infamous 2015 song ‘Alright’ which received a huge backlash from the media for the line attributing to police violence. Back then Fox News reporter Geraldo Rivera went on to say during the debate that “Hip-Hop has done more damage to African-Americans than racism

Even though it isn’t much known about Kendrick’s forthcoming album besides the album title and producers like Boi-1da, Sounwave, Cardo confirming their contribution to the album, the hype for “Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers” is guaranteed to be through the roof in coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar has been spotted in the last few days with his latest pg-lang signee at the Dodgers game and also at Coachella with another pg-lang Baby Keem.  Check out the pics below:

Snoop Dogg made an appearance on the Full Send podcast where he talked about the “trend” going around of rapper throwing shots at Eminem.

During an interview, the host stated that Eminem doesn’t do much anymore, to which Snoop replied:

“He do what he has to do… I think, when you have been the biggest rapper in the world for so many years it is like, ‘what more can you do?!’ He is finding his moments now. Finding when he wants to come and when he wants to drop and pop because his fanbase ain’t going nowhere.”

Following that, he shared his opinions on rappers that criticize Eminem. Snoop explained that rappers target Marshal in order to gain attention because they know that dissing Slim Shady would get people talking .

“They know he’s sitting in the shell right now and what they gonna do is make him pop that motherf*cking shell open”, he said. “People take shots at rappers like that because that rapper is invisible for the moment, but that is the way to getting back visible, when you start poking the bear. He still is who he is. Do not get it fu*ked up. [….]  You poke the bear with your nails, you get your nails broke.”

Future is making sure that fans have all of the information they need as he prepares for the release of his upcoming album. The Atlanta rapper discussed his next project, past relationships, links with Drake and Ye, and more in a new GQ cover story.

A post shared by GQ (@gq)

Future, who was heavily involved in the production of Donda 2, opened up about his friendship with Kanye West, sharing some interesting facts about not always getting the writing credit.

“Me and Kanye always had a relationship”, he told GQ. “But it’s hard for people to understand because I do not put everything on Instagram. Kanye flew me to Paris in 2011 or 2012 to work on music. [We discussed] his clothing line before it came, his shoe business before it came. People do not know I have been able to go to his house and pull up right into the crib. We just never talked about it.”

During the interview, Future was asked what he thought of Kanye West calling him “the most influential artist of the past ten years.” This is when the 38-year-old rapper revealed that there are some of Ye’s songs out there that he wrote on but didn’t get credit for.

“When he said that, I understood why he called me to Paris,” he said. “Even though I did not understand it at that time. I understood why we had certain conversations. I understood him being a part of ‘I Won.’ Even him having me write on certain albums that people do not even understand I wrote on.”

The executive producer of the Donda sequel went on to say that creating songs with Ye isn’t about getting recognition, but about enjoying what you do.

“Sometimes not getting credit when you write with [Kanye] because the love of the art is…I want it to be right. Top tier. Just being able to create and put those textures over different music, and being involved with something like that. And then later down the line in a priceless moment, him saying what he said on Drink Champs. The value of that statement. The value of the relationship as it continues to grow, the value of just treating people like they are priceless, instead of treating people like they got a dollar sign on them every time,” said Future.

The Mask Off rapper also praised one of his other colleagues, Drake. Their most notable feature was 2015’s ‘What a Time to Be Alive’, a spontaneous collaboration mixtape that was created during a six-day studio session.

“Anytime we work in the studio, the level, the energy, we are trying to perfect this sh*t but still stay raw, still stay gritty, and still be moving at the speed of the universe… It is something that you have to work at, but it is something that you have to find too,” this is how Future described working with Drizzy.
He continued: “We made the most out of it. You are in a place where your self-esteem and ego allow a person to be in your space. And not be afraid to be like: ‘I want to align and build with this…. You are never weak when you understand another man’s strengths.”

With Pusha-T’s new album “It’s Almost Dry” officially confirmed for a Friday (April 22) release, fans have been paying close attention.

While an official tracklist has yet to be released by Pusha, fans have heard that there will be a single featuring both Kid Cudi and Kanye West. Given that this information has already been made public, Kid Cudi wants to make it clear that he is not friends with Ye.

The Ohio rapper addressed the feature on Twitter, explaining that the song was recorded a year ago and that, while he is no longer “cool” with Ye, he is allowing Pusha to use the song out of respect.

“Hey! So I know some of you heard about the song I got w Pusha. I did this song a year ago when I was still cool with Kanye. I am not cool with that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz that’s my guy. This is the last song you will hear me on with Kanye -Scott,” Wrote Cudi.

 

In February, Ye and Kid Cudi had a public disagreement. Kanye was supposedly unhappy by Cudi’s friendship with Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson. The Chicago rapper  stated that Cudi will not be included on Donda 2 due of his association with the SNL comedian, to which Kid Cudi answered:

“Too bad I don’t wanna be on your album you f*cking dinosaur hahaha.”

Since Cudi’s latest post, Twitter has been reacting to this falling out.

One user jokingly wrote: “2 grown men beefing over Pete Davidson.”
