Drake Drops ‘Behind Barz’ Freestyle

Drake is getting his “Barz” up.

Netflix’s new series Top Boy arrives tonight along with the soundtrack via OVO Sound. In addition to Baka Not Nice, Popcaan, and Little Simz, the 13 tracks include Drizzy’s “Behind Barz” freestyle, which he previously dropped in July 2018 for London’s Link Up TV.

“I know so much shit that I cannot expose,” he raps on the nearly three-minute track. “I keep it inside and I laugh on my own / Got all the tea and I’m hottin’ it up.”

He also takes shots at the competition. “You’re droppin’ some shit but that shit was a bust / They got no direction, they followin’ us / I come from a city that they never touch / Your man is a goofy and he can get brushed.”

Drake, along with LeBron James’ manager Maverick Carter, serves as the executive producer of Top Boy. The Netflix series is based off the critically-acclaimed crime drama that debuted in the U.K. in 2011.

Meanwhile, Drake has been back in the studio working on a new album, which could drop as soon as November.

Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, & Lana Del Rey Team Up on ‘Don’t Call Me Angel’

Hello, Angels.

Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey join forces on their highly-anticipated collaboration “Don’t Call Me Angel” from the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. With the help of producer Max Martin, the powerhouse trio delivers a fierce and empowering anthem for 2019.

“Boy, don’t call me angel, you ain’t got me right,” sings Ari, while Miley adds, “I don’t like that, boy. Keep your pretty mouth shut.”

Along with the song, they have also dropped the angelic video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis.

“Don’t Call Me Angel” follows in the footsteps of Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women” theme song from 2000’s Charlie’s Angels film starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu.

“Of course we were inspired by ‘Independent Women’ and Destiny’s Child with the last set of movies,” director Elizabeth Banks told PEOPLE. “I feel really grateful that this incredible group of artists took inspiration from these films as well and felt like working together as women, and [it] thematically matched up with the exact movie that we were making.”

The movie hits theaters Nov. 15.

Report: Tinashe Signs with Roc Nation

Tinashe is under new management.

The singer is now being repped by Roc Nation, according to Hitmaka. During an interview with HipHop-N-More, the producer revealed that Tinashe has signed with JAY-Z’s management company.

“I actually spoke to her just recently. She left RCA Records, I believe she’s managed by Roc Nation now,” said Hitmaka.

In February, Tinashe confirmed her split with RCA Records, where she released her 2014 debut Aquarius and last year’s Joyride, as well as her 2016 mixtape Nightride. “They low-key always sabotaged my real art shit. disappointing, but it made me stronger,” she told fans during a Twitter chat in July.

She has also since parted ways with her longtime manager Mike Nazzaro. She alluded to the breakup during the same Q&A session. When told her team had “worms for brains,” she replied, “im aware thats why they are fired lol.”

Hitmaka produced Tinashe’s unreleased project Nashe. Last year, she dropped a couple tracks from the project including “Throw a Fit” and “Like I Used To.”

“It was a lot of fun doing that because we really went into the studio for a week and banged out like 15 records that are just amazing,” he said. “I’m excited for everybody to hear the records. You know we had a little bit of a start and stop with her switching labels but hopefully y’all will get to hear the music soon.”

Mac Miller left behind millions of dollars in assets when he died.

New legal documents, obtained by TMZ, reveal that the Pittsburgh rapper had $7 million in property including nearly $5 million in master recording assets, $1.5 million in music royalties, and $180,000 in Mac Miller LLC.

Additionally, he had $20,000 in household furniture and $15,000 worth of electronics. The docs also account for Mac’s extensive jewelry collection, including a $31,000 18-karat Presidential bracelet, a $20,000 Rolex, and a $14,000 Cuban link necklace.

Miller died from a lethal combination of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol at his home in Studio City, Calif. home on Sept. 7, 2018. Last week, a Hollywood Hills man was arrested and charged in connection with Miller’s death. Cameron James Pettit allegedly supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl.

During a memorial in his hometown last week, Mac’s father, Mark McCormick, addressed Pettit’s arrest. “So they finally caught that motherf**ker that sold him the drugs,” he said. “And we find some comfort. And many of us were young including me experimenting with drugs, but it’s a different fucking world out there. And all it takes is a little stone, a little tiny stone of fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead. Drugs are being laced with fentanyl, all kinds of drugs.”
