Puff Daddy and Drake’s scuffle in a Miami nightclub early on Monday morning was the week’s biggest Hip Hop news and revelations about the fight poured in shortly after. Elsewhere, Lil Wayne vaguely announced that he’ll remain loyal to Cash Money Records after airing out some public grievances on Twitter about his album delay. Finally, with J. Cole’s new album released at the top of the week, news that the album might possibly bring the biggest first week sales numbers for a Hip Hop album yet in 2014 followed shortly after. Still, when Trick Trick caught wind of some of Cole’s lines on the song “Firing Squad,” which features an underhanded reference to Eminem, he threatened to “lock the gate on” Cole in a string of comments on Instagram.
Diddy & Drake Confrontation Over “0 to 100” Beat
Apparently angry over a disagreement about a Boi-1da beat that they were both given separately, Puff Daddy reportedly punched Drake early Monday morning in Miami at a nightclub. Diddy, who apparently had had the beat for months, was upset that Drake used the music to record what would become his latest hit “0 To 100,” according to Hollywood Life. Then, TMZ released footage of the mogul dissing Drake over the beat jack months ago at a performance in Miami. Read the whole story and watch TMZ’s latest video on HipHopDX here.
