The whole audience, and the internet, completely flipped at this information because we have been waiting on it for so long. Then to make it even more exciting, Drake kissed Rihanna as she accepted her award. Through this lovefest there was one person that wasn’t thrilled to hear the news, and that was Nicki Minaj.

Drake and Meek Mill have had beef for the last several months and this situation is just going to add fuel to the fire. Already, at after parties last night, artists are showing their loyalties and Chris Brown was photographed with Mill. This situation is going to really spin out of control over the next few weeks.

Nobody understands Minaj’s jealousy, but if Drake and Rhi Rhi get engaged, does that meant that Minaj and Mill will walk down the aisle first? No matter what happens between these love birds, the world supports a Drake and Rihanna wedding, even if Minaj doesn’t. Don’t worry Nicki you have Mill, and you shouldn’t be worried about Drake.

Nicki Minaj Puts Meek Mill First, Cuts Off Any Communication With Drake

The Internet is buzzing with the fact that Nicki Minaj loves Drake’s new album Views, but Minaj won’t tell the Toronto rapper this because she is putting Meek Mill first and has cut off any communication at all with Drizzy in order to focus on her relationship with Mill. Many speculate that this relationship is what caused a rift between Drake and Minaj in the first place and that Mill feels threatened by the fact that Drake is a superior rapper. The so called Barbie and the 6 god were very close in the past as videos and musical collaborations show, but ever since the feud started between Drake and Meek Mill Minaj has had to choose a side and is basically caught in the middle in the tug of war between the two rappers.

A source close to Nicki Minaj explained that “Nicki is aware that Drake still has love for her but she had to cut all the communication off, largely to protect her relationship with Meek. She had to pick a side and she chose her man’s. Meek and Drake were going at it way too hard dissing one another and she was caught in the middle. She had no choice but to stop talking to Drake. They will always be cool but Nicki is committed to Meek. That’s her man and quite possibly the love of her life.”

During a recent OVO Sounds Radio interview with Zane Lowe Drake also talked about his relationship with Nicki Minaj. The Toronto rapper explained that he understood why she choose her man over him, but in Keep the Family Close you can hear the pain that Drizzy is in because of this choice when he raps “And it’s all because you chose a side/You’re supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me/Guess it wasn’t time/And of course you went and chose a side that wasn’t mine.”

During the interview Drizzy told Zane  “I always have respect and love for Nicki. I don’t really talk to Nicki. Again, another person that I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect, not only for our past and how much work and time we put in, but even just the way she dealt with the situation at hand. I understand what love is, and I understand a personal situation. She dealt with me how I would expect her to, which was with class, and I could only ever do the same …There were points in time where I was waiting to see like, how is this going to go, how deep is your love, you know?”

 

What Secret About Drake is Nicki Minaj Keeping From Meek Mill? Her Love For Views!

Nicki Minaj has a secret that she is keeping from her #1 man Meek Mill, and the secret is about Drake and his new album Views From the 6. Minaj has to be careful because her main squeeze and Drizzy have been feuding for some time now, and it is no secret that the Toronto rapper and the Philadelphia rapper have no love lost between them. The secret that Minaj is keeping is how much she loves Views because if Mill knew he would go crazy with jealousy. In order to hear the album and keep the peace Nicki listens when Meek is not around. It is no secret that Nicki and Drake have a past and were close friends, and that there is still love between the two, but Minaj has chosen to stand by her man even if that means listening to Views From the 6 in private when Mill is gone.

One source close to Nicki Minaj told a reporter that the Young Money Barbie could not get enough of Views From the 6. “Nicki’s ear has been all glued to Drake’s album, and she loves it. She couldn’t stop bobbing her head to some of the songs on Views. She thinks that Drake’s so talented. Every time he grabs the mic something epic comes out, and she couldn’t be prouder. She was so excited to listen to his new album that she didn’t do it anywhere in Meek’s presence. That would have made him so jealous and Nicki didn’t want that. She’d never admit this, but she thinks Drake is a far more superior rapper than her own man. But that’s on the super, super down low.”

Since Drake disses Mill in at least one track on Views From the 6 it is probably fair to say that if Meek found out his girl was always listening to the album this would cause friction in the relationship between Nicki and Meek. Some are already speculating that when Mill finally gets off house arrest he will retaliate with some diss tracks of his own on a mixtape. The fact that Drake said he will “always love and respect her” when talking about his relationship with Nicki Minaj just added fuel to the flames of the feud between the rappers.

7 Lyrics From Drake Which Show Nicki Minaj is the One That Got Away, and the One Drake Wanted to Marry

Views, the latest album from Drake which was released days ago, has had fans worried about doing something rash like trying to get back together with an ex. What has bothered some fans even more though is the news that Drizzy and Nicki Minaj are no longer close. When Drake gave an interview to Beats 1 Radio and Zane Lowe from Apple Music the Toronto rapper let it spill that he is no longer as close with Nicki as he was in the past. This distance could be because of the feud between Drizzy and Meek Mills, who is the current boyfriend of Minaj. Drake told Lowe that “I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for. She dealt with me how I would expect her to—with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.”

Drake has rapped about many women in his career, but few have inspired him the way that Nicki Minaj has or are mentioned in his songs the same way. Drake has made his adoration for Minaj well known and has told the world that he is ready and willing when it comes to the Pink Print singer. Some of Drake’s lyrics in the past that show the depth of his feelings for Nicki include:

1. “Moment 4 Life,” Pink Friday: “F–k it, me and Nicki nick getting married today/ And all you bitches that be hating/ Can catch the bouquet”

2. “Miss Me,” Thank Me Later: “I love Nicki Minaj/ I told her I’d admit it/ I hope one day we get married just to say we f–king did it/ And girl I’m f–king serious I’m with it if you with it/ ‘Cause your verses turn me on and your pants are mighty fitted/ Uh, damn, I think you caught me in a moment.”

3. “Only,” The Pinkprint: “I never f–ked Nicki cause she got a man/ But when that’s over then I’m first in line/ And the other day in her Maybach/ I thought God damn, this is the perfect time/ We had just come from that video/ You know LA traffic, how the city slow/ She was sitting down on that big butt/ But I was still staring at the titties though”

4. “Back to Back,” (diss to Meek Mill): “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her/ This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more”

5. “Tuscan Leather,” Nothing Was the Same: “Not even talkin’ to Nicki, communication is breakin’/ I dropped the ball on some personal shit, I need to embrace it”

6. “Charged Up,” (diss to Meek Mill): “Rumor has it, I either f–ked her or I never could, But rumor has it, hasn’t done you ni–as any good.”

And while the next one isn’t confirmed to be about Minaj, it definitely has you wondering, considering his interview remarks:

7. “Keep the Family Close,” Views: “All of my “let’s just be friends” are friends I don’t have anymore/ How do you not check on me when things go wrong…/ I always saw you for what you could’ve been/ And even when it’s business with you it’s personal again/ I knew you before you made ends meet now we’re meeting our ends

“And its all because you chose a side/ You’re supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me/ Guess it wasn’t time/ And of course you went and chose a side that wasn’t mine.”

Multi Million Dollar Lawsuit Filed by Lil Wayne Against Universal Music Group Over Tyga, Drake, and Nicki Minaj Profits Withheld

Lil Wayne is mad, and the hip hop artist has filed a multi million dollar lawsuit against Universal Music Group for withholding profits that the Young Money head honcho was due for artists Tyga, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. UMG is the Cash Money Records parent company, and Young Money Records has a joint venture with CMR. In the lawsuit there are allegations from Lil Wayne that Universal has witheld and failed to pay tens of millions of dollars for the 3 artists. The lawyer for Lil Wayne released a statement explaining that Cash Money had a debt with Universal for $100 million that was paid for advances.

The lawsuit filed by Lil Wayne alleges that profits for YMR should not have been withheld to cover CMR debt, since CMR only owns 51% of YMR and Lil Wayne directly holds the other 49% himself. According to a respresentative for Lil Wayne’s lawyers “Ignoring Lil Wayne’s documented ownership interest in the records of these artists, Universal confiscated Wayne’s profits to repay the large Cash Money Records debt for which neither Wayne nor his Young Money Entertainment company has any responsibility. Universal further deprived Wayne of millions of dollars in SoundExchange royalties owing on account of his ownership of these records.”

A representative for Universal Music Group gave a statement to Rolling Stone explaining “These claims are entirely without merit. It should be no surprise that we learned of the lawyer’s complaint through the news media. We don’t intend to dignify this with further public comment except to say that we will vigorously contest it and that the merits of our case will carry the day.” The Hollywood Reporter has issued a report stating that Lil Wayne is asking for $40 million in the lawsuit.

There is no longer a valid agreement between YMR and CMR, the joint venture expired in June of last year. The latest Lil Wayne lawsuit is also separate and in addition to the one filed last year by the hip hop artist against Birdman, the head of Cash Money Records, which asks for $51 million. This initial lawsuit caused a lot of infighting and bad blood in the music industry but Lil Wayne and Birdman have made attempts to tone things down even though this lawsuit has not been resolved yet either.

Drake’s Diss Track Aimed at Meek Mill gets Grammy Nomination, Shows Drake as the Feud Winner

Earlier this year the feud between Drake and Meek Mill was legendary, with enough drama for a teenage girl and plenty of lyrics on both sides. It looks like Drake came out on top though, because his diss track titled Back to Back received a Grammy nomination for the 2016 award in the category fr Best Rap Performance. The Grammy nomination leaves no doubt at all that Drake not only won the feud he buried Meek Mill in his dust.

Some suspect that the beef between Drake and Meek Mill became so serious is because both men have a connection to Nicki Minaj. Drake and Minaj have been BFFs for a long time, while Meek Mill is dating the pink print singer and is a support act for her tour. Drake makes note of this fact in his Back to Back track, asking “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?”
 

Meek Mill tried to hit back with a diss track of his own called Wanna Know but this track was not well received at all. 2015 has been a terrific year for Drake, with his Hotline Bling single becoming very popular very fast. Drake also recently opened a flagship OVO store in Los Angeles. The feud between the rappers started when Meek commented on social media “Stop comparing drake to me too … He don’t write his own raps!” Since Meek Mill was not named for a Grammy nomination and Drake was it just shows that Drizzy has come out on top in this feud.

Is Rick Ross Throwing Shade at Drake in Color Money Over the Meek Mill Feud?

Rick Ross has stepped into the Drake and Meek Mill feud, defending Nicky Minaj’s boyfriend and trying to throw shade at Drake at the same time in his latest song Color Money according to some sources. The track is on Rick Ross’s album Black Market. Lyrics to the track which may be taking a jab at Drake include “Color money got your b—- out on a world tour/ My lil’ homie made a million on his girl’s tour/ We back to back and down to wack a n—- unborn/ Miami n—– got ’em changin’ all they gun laws/ So run Forrest, got some shooters and they down, too/ I got more money then that p—- that you signed to.”

Drake has stated in one of tracks that Meek Mill was profiting from The Pinkprint Tour by Nicky Minaj. Ross has also been defensive of Mill and referenced the spat between Drake and Mill. The pair have been going back and forth for some time now in their lyrics and the feuding has only gotten worse. Many believe that Drake has previously said he was in love with Nicky Minaj, who is the current girlfriend of Meek Mill. Maybe Drake is just reacting like a protective big brother though, one who feels his little sister is being taken advantage of.

Spotify’s Annual Year in Review Released, Drizzy and RiRi Named Streams King and Queen

The annual year in review was recently released by Spotify and the results should not surprise anyone. Drake was named the most streamed artist of the year, no surprise with 1.8 billon in total streams for the artist. When it came to the highest number of streams in a single day the distinction went to Justin Bieber, and the album that was streamed the most was Beauty Behind the Madness by The Weeknd.

Rihanna was named the most streamed female artists in spite of the fact that she has not had a full album release in 2015, or even 2014 for that matter. Rihanna saw a little more than 1 billion streams without a full album. The Barbados beauty has had several hit singles this year though, and fans also sought to stream some cuts from her 2012 album as well. Rihanna is always a popular choice when it comes to music and since her studio album Anti has been put on hold and delayed this could explain the heightened interest in music by RiRi.

The annual year in review by Spotify may have turned out differently for Rihanna if either Adele or Taylor Swift were in the catalog for the music service, and either singer may have broken the number needed to top Rihanna. Taylor Swift released her last album, 1989, last year in 2014, and none of Swift’s music can be found in the Spotify catalog. The past albums released by Adele can be found in the Spotify catalog but her hit 25, just released this yea, is not listed. Either of these circumstances may have taken the crown as Queen of streaming from Rihanna. There were 3 female artists who were on the list behind RiRi who have also not had a full album release in 2015. These artists were Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande.
