With T.I.’s album released at the top of the week, this week’s Top 10 features new music from Drake, a recap of the Toronto artist’s recent banter with comedian Kevin Hart, and new tracks from Mac Miller and Meek Mill. Drake’s latest mysterious leak crowns the list at #1 and the newest in Joe Budden’s “Ordinary Love Shit” saga continues at #3.
Drake’s “How About Now” Leaks
Whether it’s a leak from his next album or a leftover from the last one, a new Drake was released this week on SoundCloud after apparently being uncovered by a teenage fan in Georgia. Either way, the track finds Drake retreading a pre-fame relationship over a Boi1da and Noah “40” Shebib beat and wondering, “How about now?” “I used to always try to burn you CDs of my new shit,” Drake raps in the second verse, “You’d be like, ‘Who’s this?’ I’d be like, ‘Me, girl’ / You’d be like, ‘Oh word, true shit?’ / Then ask if we could listen to Ludacris.”
“How About Now” is the first full Drake song released since “0 to 100” though neither has been confirmed for placement on his next album.
Kevin Hart Clowns Drake For Airball
When Drake warmed up with the Kentucky Wildcats at the program’s opening season practice last week, the rapper shot layups with the team and was filmed throwing up an airball in the process. Shortly after, comedian Kevin Hart took to Instagram to clown the Toronto emcee for the move and Drake quickly responded himself, apparently taking the jokes in stride and reminding everybody with a hashtag that he’s a tennis player.
Joe Budden Releases “Ordinary Love Shit Pt. 4”
With his next project set for a November 4 release, Joe Budden leaked the long-in-the-works “Ordinary Love Shit Pt. 4” this week. The song is the first in the series to be released in three years and again deals head on with Joe’s personal and romantic life, this time apparently chronicling his on-and-off again relationship with Tahiry. “I just wanna treat you good and do better,” he raps in the extended verse, “You think I’m running around trying to be the hoods Hugh Heffner / Saying I’m all about hoes, when I’m all about you / Even when I’m with my hoes, I tell them all about you.”
