It’s always a good week in the Top Singles world when almost all of the songs are brand new. While DJ Khaled is still hanging on this week at #10 with his Nas, Scarface, and DJ Premier-assisted “Hip Hop,” for the most part everything else is a recent release. There is a bit of controversy on the list this week, with a couple of diss tracks that surfaced. Whoever said a little beef was bad for you (besides the Surgeon General)? As long as it’s all in good fun, then it’s fine. Let’s hope this all stays on wax.
Eminem Lends a Helping Hand to Slaughterhouse
On Tuesday (August 28th), we’ll finally get the Slaughterhouse debut welcome to: Our House. Slaughterhouse gets a ton of love here at DX, along with Eminem. So having the Shady 2.0 horsemen linking with the Shadefather for two tracks was a definite win this week. At #1 is the sorta title track “Our House” with Eminem and Skylar Grey. Is Skylar joining the Shady regime? Perhaps. She was on “I Need a Doctor” and penned Rihanna’s parts for “Love the Way You Lie.” Em shows up for Slaughterhouse again at #2 with “Throw That.” This week was a busy one for Slaughterhouse, but next week will be even busier.
Lil Wayne and Diddy Served Beef From Donny Goines and Shyne
This came out of nowhere. At #3, Donny Goines airs out his grievances against Lil Wayne (kinda) on “F*ck Lil Wayne (Flat Out I Don’t Like You).” It’s a bold statement in fact, and how Wayne will respond (if at all) is what the world is really wondering at this point. Lil Wayne still popped up on our list two other times: at #4 helping Game on “Celebration” and at #8 with Busta Rhymes on “Pressure.” Game popped up again at #9 on Tyga’s “Switch Lanes.” The other diss track this week comes from some long-standing beef. Shyne says “You’re Welcome” to Diddy at #6. Maybe Diddy will respond with “Thank You.”
