The Rap Up: Episode No. 18

More Life… More Waiting.

Despite Drake’s extensive catalog of heart melting love ballads, he’s pretty cruel when it comes to teasing release dates. Each of Drake’s most recent projects; What A Time To Be Alive, Views, and the short lived collaborative mixtape with Kanye West, were all punctuated by frustrating teasers, trolling, misdirection, or flat out heart break. As we all know, the Kanye collab never actually saw light. The case is very much the same with More Life. After a cryptic photo posted to Instagram by Drake, and a similarly misleading post by his father, fans were all but convinced More Life would see life this weekend. Without belaboring the point, the absence of More Life on my iPhone is still painfully clear. The release date is anyone’s guess at this point, however a Friday release would be logical. Regardless, More Life is on the precipice of being in our hands, and all reports point to it being well worth the wait.

Chance Gives Chicago Public Schools a Chance

Chance The Rapper held a press conference at a public school in Chicago to announce that he will be donating a million dollars to Chicago’s schools. Chance is exactly the person you can assume that will be that gracious to give back to the kids from the streets he came from. Chance is being an example for many artists from the city to give back. “Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions”. For the kids, the kids are the future and with the current climate of the state Chicago is in right now there’s no one I’d rather see step up than a man of the people. Chance has been very active in the Chicago community, alongside Chicago native rappers like Common. It’s a good look to see Chance give back to those who the world has abandon or looked down upon because of their status.

The Rap Up: Episode No. 17

Don’t Meek This up Nicki

This week was interesting for a few reasons. Reading week of course, but for those outside campus, Remy Ma’s “Shether” diss track directed at Nicki Minaj was enough to get most people out of their seat. For those who follow the industry closely, the beef has been in the works for year’s however, due to Ma’s infamous incarceration tensions never broke. Fresh off a new album with Fat Joe, it seems Remy Ma is now coming for blood and Nicki Minaj seems to be in the crosshairs. Nicki has yet to respond directly but had some choice lines in her two most recent releases which most assume to be directed at Ma. A few other rappers have chimed in, including The Game who has tried dragging Meek Mill back into things. While we’re not exactly sure where this is going, it sure isn’t over yet.

 DJ Semtex Interviews Drake

Drake recently sat down with DJ Semtex, and discuss details about More Life, Meek Mill, Kanye West and many more. Drake spoke about the More Life process and progression of the album. Drake spoke with Semtex about the demise of relationships he had with Meek and Kanye and how there were o mending of ties. There were no specific dates on when the album will be released. Drake spoke with a lot of enthusiasm about his collaborations with UK artists, and how similar the London culture is similar to the Toronto culture when it comes to the slang and terminologies. There are no exact dates for the release of the album, but as fans eagerly wait there are a lot of anticipation as to it’s now what surprise release.

The Rap Up: Episode No. 16

“They say you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy”

Well Chance, you proved them wrong. In case you missed this years Grammy celebrations, The Rap Up has you covered. Perhaps the biggest story of the night for the Hip-Hop community is that Chance the Rapper took home a total of three Grammy’s for “Best New Artist”, “Best Rap Album”, and “Best Rap Performance”. After a tumultuous year leading up to the event, with regards to major artists avoiding the ceremonies altogether, its clear the right decision was made. Additionally, even though Beyonce did not win “Album of The Year”, her incredible performance (while pregnant with twins we might add), and relationship with Adele stole the show. In fact, Adele broke her Grammy in half on stage so that she could share it with Beyonce, who she felt deserved the award just as much.

 

Big Sean drops “I Decided”

Big Sean came through last Thursday with the release of his newest studio album, I Decided. The project is laced with 14 tracks, and has features from Eminem, Jhene Aiko, The Dream, and Migos. Understandably, a lot of people have been debating the quality of Eminem’s feature, however we’ll let you be the judge of that. However, it is important to note that this is the first track Big Sean and Eminem have shared exclusively. Its also significant due to the fact both are at the moment Detroit’s most dangerous emcee’s. Overall the album seem’s to be well received by fans and even became America’s #1 album on Billboard this week.
