Meek Mill Freestyles Over "Ain't Gon' Let Up" On DJ Clue's 'Desert Storm Radio'

Meek laced another street heater while in New York City. 

While on his Wins & Losses promo run, Philly rapper Meek Mill made a pit stop in New York City. While in the Rotten Apple, the Dreamchaser stopped by DJ Clue's 'Desert Storm Radio' where he spit a fire freestyle over DG Yola's "Ain't Gon' Let Up" instrumental.

"Timing is money and money is time/Hustle like I'm bout to run out of time/Step to a chump in the front of the line/Get on my level I been in the mix/Blue on Rick 'Rari like Optimus Prime/Most of these niggas be popping these pills/Don't know what they talking, they out of they mind/They sipping that lean and popping them percys a thousand a time," raps the MMG signee.

Meek has been on a roll with his street-inspired freestyles, too. Just last week, the "Litty" rapper found time to stop by HOT 97 to offer Funk Flex and fans some heavy wordplay.

In not-so-good Meek Mill news, the rapper born Robert Williams managed to irk a couple of Miami rap legends. During an interview with Ebro Darden and Laura Stylez on Hot 97’s 'Ebro in the Morning,' Meek made comments on how he influenced Miami's culture.

“I don’t think you know,” Meek said at Hot 97. “When you see people rolling their skullies up, when you see people with the diamond chains… everybody’s wearing Cuban links, when you see people in Miami on the yachts now on Instagram — that come from the influence of Meek Mill, the Dreamchasers, because they believe us.”

This didn't sit well with Miami native Trick Daddy nor 2 Live Crew's front man Luther Campbell. In a Instagram video, an angry Trick Daddy said that Meek owes his city an apology.

Uncle Luke also added his two cents by encouraging Meek to learn more about Miami's hip-hop history.

“I’m the first to put jet skis in a video I OWN. First to put a yacht in a video I OWN," said Uncle Luke in the IG video. "First to own a jet. First to put cars in a video. First to put girls on the beach.”

Who is the history lesson Mr #meekmill

Buju Banton Explains Why He Removed Controversial Song "Boom Bye Bye" From Catalog

Reggae icon Buju Banton is urging fans to lead with love by permanently banning the breakout hit "Boom Bye Bye" from his catalog.

News of the move recirculated after his Long Walk To Freedom comeback concert earlier this month when fans noticed the artist didn't perform his 1992 classic. Banton was released from prison earlier this year after serving a seven-year sentence related to drug charges.

The song, which includes a sample of Cobra's "Flex," includes anti-gay lyrics like "Boom bye bye inna batty bwoy head/Rude bwoy nah promote no nasty man, dem haffi dead," which in patios means shooting a gay man in the head. In the past, Banton has pointed out that he was 15-years-old when he wrote the song, which was originally about a pedophile who was caught molesting young boys in Banton's neighborhood in Jamaica.

“In recent days there has been a great deal of press coverage about the song "Boom Bye Bye" from my past which I long ago stopped performing and removed from any platform that I control or have influence over,” Banton told Urban Islandz. Banton hasn't performed the song since 2007 but decided to speak out once again about the track.

“I recognize that the song has caused much pain to listeners, as well as to my fans, my family and myself. After all the adversity we’ve been through I am determined to put this song in the past and continue moving forward as an artist and as a man. I affirm once and for all that everyone has the right to live as they so choose. In the words of the great Dennis Brown, ‘Love and hate can never be friends.’ I welcome everyone to my shows in a spirit of peace and love. Please come join me in that same spirit.”

In the past week, the song has been removed from streaming services like Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. The video, which reached nearly 30 million views on YouTube, was also removed from his account.

Banton's move to mute the song in 2007 was in solidarity with the Reggae Compassionate Act under the Stop Murder Music Campaign. The legislation introduced by the Black Gay Men's Advisory Group was also supported by other reggae icons like Beanie Man, Bounty Killer and Capleton in an effort to bring an end to homophobic lyrics and attacks against the LGBTQ community in Carribean islands. At the time, artists faced backlash for not performing the songs since other tracks like "Boom Bye Bye" became crossover hits.

Jamrock Sound principal Hugh ‘Redman’ James also defended Banton's decision to axe the song from his catalog. "I go to all the rehearsals and he don’t do that song, he don’t rehearse that song,” James said. “That is the song that kinda shoot him a bit, so him bury up that.”

The track may have brought Banton public fanfare in the 90s, but other tracks like "Action," "Wanna Be Loved" and "Untold Stories" have solidified his legacy and growth.

Rico Nasty To Release 'Anger Management' LP In April

Rico Nasty allowed much time to go by without new music. Since the release of her debut album Nasty last year, the rapper has released a steady amount of singles and slayed guest spots on tracks with Doja Cat and Amine. Now the 21-year-old is ready to drop another LP perfectly titled, Anger Management. 

On Sunday (March 24), Rico hopped on Instagram Live to share the news. A date hasn't been put in place but she assured that the project will "probably come out in April." Like many of her projects, Rico will team up with producer extraordinaire Kenny Beats. Rico revealed how she wants fans "to really enjoy it" as she will jump into different sounds and styles.

From what Rico disclosed in her Instagram Live, Anger Management will feature guest spots from Earthgang and "Intro part 2" rapper Splurge.

The "Countin' Up'" artist has always been unique in her style and comfortable in her own skin. Nasty, which was featured on our EOY lists last year, showed how successful Rico is at mixing trap and pop. Seems like fans can expect the same magic this time around.

Rico was most recently at SXSW and will perform at Coachella in April.

Nicky Jam And Ozuna's "Te Robare" Video Transports Them To Another World

Nicky Jam and Ozuna are on a mission to get the girl they want at all costs. A black and white montage serves as the backdrop for their playful new video for their latest single, “Te Robare,” which translates into the mischievous: “I’ll steal you.”

Throughout their performance, a bevy of beautiful women have brief interludes that go from talking in a vaporized infused telephone booth to breaking into a sexy dance group sequence. "We are very happy to be able to share this new single with the fans of the reggaetón genre, we are sure that they will enjoy this song as much as we do,” Nicky said in a press release.

Despite the video featuring a slew of women, it's worth noting that it looks sexy but classic. Jam prides himself in creating this type of imagery in his visuals. In 2017, he told Billboard, "Our audience is so broad that we have to make videos where women look beautiful and conservative and are treated with respect because the videos are seen by kids and adults," he said. "Other reggaetóneros who do what they do are targeting one audience. They don’t have the same responsibility we do."

In addition to releasing new music, Nicky Jam is kicking off his "Intimo Tour 2019" on April 11 in Chicago and will go through the month of May. Watch the video for "Te Robare" above.
