Styles P Says Drake Is Wrong About Rap Beefs: "Ain't No Rules"

"You gotta go into it knowing anything could happen."

Drake shared some interesting thoughts about his recent rap beef with Pusha T on HBO's The Shop with Lebron James. During the conversation, Drizzy argued that there are rules to follow when engaging in rap beef, and that Pusha broke them when he wished death upon Drake's friend Noah "40" Shebib – who struggles with MS – on his diss track "The Story of Adidon." Not everyone would agree with that argument though. In a recent interview with Hot97 on Oct. 16, Styles P argued the complete opposite: there are no rules in rap beefs.

"You can’t expect in any type of warfare, any type, not just rap, ain’t no rules," Styles said. "You gotta go into it knowing anything could happen. That’s why your best bet is to not engage. Stay away from beef at all costs."

Styles also noted that Drake can't create rules that he doesn't even abide by. "I don’t got nothing against Drake, but how does a guy say what’s the rules in a rap battle that had a ghostwriter before. That’s not fair dog," he continued. "You gotta stay up there. You’re beautiful up there. We love you up there. But don’t come down here and change the rules. That’s wrong because it’s war."

He added: "Something else you’re asking him to do is not follow tradition. Pusha-T is not a new rapper, he’s been around for a while. There’s no rules in this. He’s heard it all when he’s heard beef.

As previously reported, Drake appeared to very upset about Push's comments about 40. In the latest episode of the HBO series, he suggested that someone was going to "punch" the G.O.O.D Music artist in his face for what he said. "When you mention defenseless people who are sick in the hospital, that passed away, that really sent me to a place where I just believed then, and believe now, that there’s just a price that you have to pay for that," he said at the time.

While that may have been a low blow, Styles P advised Drake to avoid rap battles from now on. "Drake, you the biggest guy in the game, just chill, there’s nothing wrong with that. It shouldn’t have been a battle," he continued.

Solange is the composer and director of a special performance piece titled "Witness!" The piece will be performed on September 17 at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.

YG Releases '4REAL 4REAL' Album Featuring Meek Mill, Tyga, And More

After a brief delay, YG’s fourth studio album, 4REAL 4REAL is finally here. The 14-track project arrived on Friday (May 24) and features guest appearances by Meek Mill, Tyga, Kamaiyah, DaBaby, and more.

The album's release date was initially suspended in light of Nipsey Hussle's untimely death in March 2019. YG included a song, entitled "My Last Words (Nipsey Hussle Tribute)." The track includes audio from YG's speech at Nip's memorial service.

Just hours ahead of the album's release, YG announced that he would be giving a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children. "I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album,” YG said in a recent interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood. “By the time they get 18, from me, they’re gonna have a bag sitting there.”

YG To Give Percentage Of Album Sales To Nipsey Hussle's Children

YG is gearing up for the release of his new studio album, 4REAL 4REAL. Ahead of the album's Friday release, YG stopped by Big Boy's Neighborhood on Wednesday (May 23), where he discussed his friendship with Nipsey Hussle. He also revealed his plans to donate a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children.

YG revealed his thoughtful plan when he was asked about the epitaph that is included on the album's cover art.  "I put that 'In Loving Memory of Nip' on the album because I'm giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album. So by the time they hit 18, from me, they gonna have a bag," YG explained. He also noted that he is considering making donations to the family for the next six albums.

Nipsey and YG have been friends since 2010. "I think we did some music the same day," YG said of their first encounter. "After that, we just kept running across each other on some L.A. shit. From that, it just started to build... He ended up being like a big brother to me," YG says. "The brand shit was the thing we talked about all the time, building a brand that's gonna [outlast] you."

4REAL 4REAL was slated to drop earlier this year but was pushed back in light of Nipsey's untimely passing. It now drops this Friday (May 24).
