Alert, alert! After teasing his comeback, Chocolate Droppa has returned with “Baller Alert,” a brand new posse cut featuring T.I. and Migos that’s also the lead single off his upcoming project, What Now? The Mixtape.
The Lex Luger-produced slapper, which also appears on Hustle Gang’s new Hustle Gang Over Errrrythang tape, finds Kevin Hart’s rapping alter ego taking on the hype man role while Tip, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff handle the bars.
“Dripping sauce all over everything,” rhymes the King of the South. “I’m a real king / You a lil’ somethin’ / Boy, don’t make me pull the rings out the vault / I be showing off and don’t even have to talk.”
Although he doesn’t rap on the track, Droppa does plan to unleash his own bars on What Now? The Mixtape, which also features the Trey Songz-assisted “Push It On Me.” Due Sept. 30, the project accompanies Hart’s new What Now? film, a stand-up concert movie that follows 2013’s Let Me Explain.
Earlier this month, Droppa announced his signing to Motown Records with a new freestyle. “Coming back to take what’s mine,” he rhymed. “Drake, Future, Jay Z, 2 Chainz, I’m about to smack all y’all on the behind / I let y’all suckers eat, but I’m hungry now / Going downtown and I’m looking to get down.”

Wiz Khalifa and J.R. Donato team up for “Stranger Things.” Despite the inspired artwork, the duo isn’t joining Netflix’s popular series. Instead, they’ve unleashed a new banger together.
“I take a look in the mirror, a G in front of me,” Khalifa rhymes. “Difference between havin’ dreams and bein’ a wannabe / And livin’ comfortably / I took my dreams and made ’em somethin’ / Doesn’t mean that I don’t wake up with the same hunger.”
Donato, meanwhile, spits about his own worries about authenticity.
“All I see is real hate, ni**as showin’ fake love,” he raps. “Givin’ fake handshakes that come with fake hugs / But I promise I’m the same / Forever gang-gang.”
“Stranger Things” follows Wiz’ recent “Gang Gang” featuring Chevy Woods and Casey Veggies, and could very well end up on Taylor Gang’s upcoming Vol. 1 mixtape.

The Game and Meek Mill’s beef continues on wax with Meek’s diss-filled remix to Young M.A.’s “Ooouuu.”
Just a day after teasing the track, the Dreamchasers boss teams up with his fellow Philly MCs, Beanie Sigel and Omelly, for a vicious onslaught. While Beans only has one line, the overall cut is still laced with venomous rhymes.
“Durk checked you,” raps Meek. “Thug sonned you / Fif dropped you / Mac one’d you / Strippers-turned-rappers / Look what we’ve come to / You a fa**ot, my lady would never fuck you.”
Later, Meek also questions Game’s control of the West. “I’ve been to Bompton,” he rhymes. “You don’t run that / Shout out to YG, where my Bloods at? / Call my eses, where them guns at?”
Meanwhile, Beanie only adds: “One phone call I’m in L.A. in three hours / The bully, please don’t bring me out of retirement.”
The heated feud started when Game accused Meek of speaking to law enforcement officials about his alleged involvement in a Sean Kingston robbery. So far, it’s mostly consisted of Instagram attacks and Game’s “92 Bars” diss track.

Rapper Ayoo KD was confronted by some goons after him for dissing Rico Recklezz.
A video of the altercation was released online and shows the young rapper being “punked” by a few of the rival rapper’s friends. The guy approaches KD and tells him “you don’t know me, I’m not a rapper, I’m a street n****. Keep my name out of your mouth. Keep Recklezz Renegade out of your mouth.” He then forces Kd to repeat those words. Ayoo seems scared in the video and is standing next to one of his partners who tells him to call Recklezz. The enforcer told him not to bother and suggested that he should have reached out before it came to this.
The guys were making the threats purposely recorded the clip for YouTube. They eventually chase them away while yelling “beat em.” Ayoo and his crew leave the scene in silence. Recklezz recently dissed Ayoo and a bunch of other Chicago rappers over 2Pac’s “Hit Em Up” beat. Ayoo responded to the diss on periscope which is what sparked this latest confrontation.
Benzino spoke to VladTV about his time at The Source, including being a part of The Source Awards.
He recalled specifically the 1995 awards show, where the East Coast/West Coast beef started bubbling up, and Benzino also shared his thoughts on the performances from the night. He told VladTV that some of the best performances in hip-hop history took place on stage that night, including Death Row’s elaborate jail-scene show. Benzino added that Suge Knight spent a lot of money on the set, but he didn’t offer up exact figures.
During the conversation Benzino also spoke about how he thinks XXL ripped off The Source, comparing the two magazines to Coke and Pepsi. He explained that XXL was created by a company that wanted to capitalize off of the popularity of The Source without knowing anything about the hip-hop world.
