While many of you were asleep, or away from your computers, something amazing happened. The Weeknd released two remixes of his #1 hit ‘The Hills‘ — packaged as ‘The Hills Remixes‘. One features Rap God Eminem, while the other features the reigning Queen of Rap Nicki Minaj. The two tracks sit #2 and #26 on iTunes, prospectively.
The Remixes is a move that is certain to keep ‘The Hills’ atop the Billboard Hot 100 next week, while many thought it would lose the top spot to Drake‘s ‘Hotline Bling‘ that is currently perched #1 on iTunes — the track also a had surge in radio play last week.
Both remixes offer some sultry yet insidious lyrics. However, the Eminem remix comes out on top. Slim Shady slows down his world renown fast flow to show off his darker side. A highlight from his verse:
“But tonight we don’t need those pills, just the effects of each other
But we gon’ film cause I will want your ex to see
(Get it?) that…”
Last night, Minaj joined The Weeknd on stage at SNL to show case her version. The Minaj remix did little to captivate the audience in the brief 42-seconds she appeared on the track. Unlike Eminem, Minaj only gave one verse (if we even consider her 30 seconds a complete verse). It was full of sexual innuendos, many of which seem to give the audience a sneak peek into her and Meek Mill‘s sex life. A highlight from her verse:
“Remember that time I showed up with just panties under my coat?
High heels, they was knee high, and my legs was grippin’ that throat”

This weekend’s Powerhouse bring out a lot of Hip-Hop’s finest. One of the most talked about performances though, was given by no other than Rap Queen Nicki Minaj.
Minaj performed a collection of her most recent features: ‘Tap Out‘, ‘I Wanna Be With You‘ and lastly ‘Love More‘. Although Minaj hasn’t released a solo single since the first quarter of the year, her features have been making buzz all around the planet.
Whether positive or Negative her name has the net buzzing, consistently. Check out her performance below.
After much anticipation Meek Mill drops the ‘Dreamchasers 3‘ mixtape. The mixtape consists of 16 tracks, with many guest appearances. Some of which are: Rick Ross, French Montana, Nicki Minaj and Yo Gotti among others.
This is the third installment of the ‘Dreamchasers‘ series. The Philly rapper gained most of his popularity from the series. The ‘Dreamchasers‘ is Meek‘s legacy, so he made sure it was of quality.
There were two things missing from this mixtape, ‘Kendrick You Next‘ and ‘Ooh Kill Em‘. These two tracks originally got people hyped for the arrival of this mixtape but were scrapped from the project.
‘Ooh Kill Em‘ a response to Kendrick Lamar‘s ‘Control‘ verse, got the internet buzzing. So why was it scrapped from the mixtape? Was it because MMG couldn’t afford another rap beef, being that the other song ‘Kendrick you Next‘ was also a diss record, but ironically not toward Kendrick but to Cassidy.
So maybe Ross thought it wouldn’t be a smart business move to promote such diss records. And even without the two buzz records the tape is great.
