As you are probably well aware if you are frequent visitor to HNHH, Tyga has entangled himself into a bit of beef with Drake, by saying in a recent interview that he doesn’t get along with his Toronto counterpart and that Drake is “fake.” We’ve sort of seen a response from Drake, and a response from an OVO affiliate, but, what do New Yorkers have to say on the matter? They are the most important people in the world, after all (that’s a joke).
For those we spoke to who actually know who Drake is, they give us their two cents on what should happen between these two label mates. Should they hash it out with fists or with words? With diss tracks? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Noisey asked Ty Dolla $ign to respond to some Youtube comments on his video “Or Nah”.
Mr. Green is back again with a new batch of tight collaborators, this time hooking up with A$AP Ferg. Read on for a statement from Green himself.
“This might come as a surprise but I like to trap music, it’s dope. I’m a boom bap dude at heart but there is something crazy exciting about trap music that i can’t get enough of. I’m not sure if it’s the sub bass, the fast hi-hats or the ridiculous chants that the artist say over and over but I’m feeling it.
When my people from VICE/Noisey told me A$AP Ferg wanted to do an episode I was all the way down. I immediately sat for a couple hours and chopped some samples I got from Chinatown and put the beat together.
A couple days later me, Sam and the crew headed uptown to Polo Grounds studio to meet Ferg. He was mad cool. We immediately hit it off and started talking about growing up riding bikes and how the bmx/skate worlds overlap into hip hop and the music industry. It kind of felt like I was talking to one of my friends I grew up skating with and not some mainstream rapper/celebrity dude. He did a couple crazy verses and a hook about riding bikes and then we took off.
Ferg and I have a mutual friend Nigel Sylvester (who I know through Animal Bikes) so, while i was making the track, I met up with him. We recorded some bikes sounds and then I threw them in the mix.
Finally, we checked out Animal Street jam in Newark and got a bunch of dope footage.
Shout out to Gabby, Nigel, Vice/Noisey, Ferg and the whole A$AP Mob, Animal Bikes, Ralph Sinisi & everyone that attended the 2014 Animal Street Jam in Newark.”
“OTFTM (Over Time For The Money)” is a song that has been getting top 10 requested on Sirius XM and radio stations in the Rocky Mountain Region of the US. Top Flite Empire, the rap group from Denver Colorado is unlike many due to the diversity of their music and its members. With a white frontman who sings as much as he raps (Johny Rocketz), a caucasian Cajuan rapper (Hypnautic) who is the most popular independent artist in Colorado and a black rapper (King Tef) from Colorado Springs who beat two different forms of life threatening rare cancers, the group’s music is as diverse as they are.
