So, in case you missed it, Meek Mill decided to take a shot at (instead of with) Drake. Why? Who the hell knows. Maybe it’s because Drake and Nicki have been linked together in the past (Meek and Nicki are dating)? Maybe it’s because Drake is jew-ish? Maybe it’s because he pretended to be in a wheelchair for so many television years? Or maybe it’s because Drake didn’t buy Meek’s new album (in stores now, go out and cop it before shots are coming your way). Whatever the reason may be, Meek was thirsty. Some think it might of simply been a terribly thought out PR move. Again, who the hell knows, and I’m at the point of this. Even WWE got involved in the beef and took Drake’s side (sidebar: I’m a closet WWE freak). Hit the jump to figure out what exactly happened.
The #SunsetFam killed it this month (we kill it every month). When collaborating for these monthly playlists, we like to do what’s best for business, and you are what’s best for business. Different genres, different artists, different sounds. There’s something on here for everyone, or maybe you’re like us and everything on here is for you. Say goodbye to July, and welcome August with open arms.
Highlights this month:
RKCB makes their debut with “Ignite.” NoMBe shines with “Miss Mirage” as he takes you on a journey. Gnash drops his guard and lets you in with “I Hate U I Love U.” MIYNT channels dark-pop-magic with “Civil War.” Allday, who you may remember from working with Skizzy Mars, dropped a solid 7-track mixtape. Arjun told us we should worry about a guy named Allan Rayman. Last, but not least, Meek Mill called out Drake for being fake. Drake responded with not one,
not two, not three, just kidding, two “diss” songs because I guess rappers still do that. You can find the second one on this playlist. Oh, and our fellow writer, Andy, became Twitter famous with his tweet about Meek Mill’s response track.

A surefire way to make your record go off these days is to get Drake to bless it with a guest verse. Such is the case with recent Meek Mill and Drizzy collaboration “R.I.C.O.”, which references the federal law that punishes organized criminal activity.
In case you were thinking the already menacing production wasn’t enough, XVII (pronounced “ex-vee-eye-eye”) has come through with a traptastic remix that takes things to a whole ‘nother level. XVII hopes that this edit will make you “wanna bounce around and rage.” I have a hunch that it will do just that.
Stream the remix below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Meek Mill has been KILLING it since he got out of jail, and the visuals for “B Boy” are only keeping the ball rolling. The first single from Meek’s sophomore effort Dreams Worth More Than Money, the video finds Meek with Big Sean and A$AP Ferg (all three of which murder this track, by the by) living the dream lifestyle. The beat ain’t too shabby, either. Props to Illroots for the sick pic, as well.
Fresh off the controversy with some Philadelphia pastor, Meek drops the video for his smash hit “Amen” off of his Dreamchasers 2 project. The video takes us to Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia, giving us a sneak peek into what life was like for this two on the Club Paradise Tour (guest appearances from the rest of the Club Paradise crew, too, including Waka Flocka and J. Cole, as well as French Montana). “Amen” is also set to appear on Meek’s debut album Dreams & Nightmares, due out August 28th.
I wanna start off by saying that Big Sean has the potential to take over this summer. I’ve been a huge Big Sean fan for god knows how long, but with his recent verses in “Mercy,” & “I Don’t Like Remix,” I strongly believe he can take over the summer with the help of Kanye & G.O.O.D Music, as long as he puts out the music of course. Sort of like what Drake did with all of his releases last summer.
Maybach Music homeboys Wale and Meek Mill hop on Drake’s jerkin’ jam. Woulda been cooler as a Drake diss track. Common where ya at?
I haven’t been too big of a fan of a Wale song in quite a while, to be perfectly honest. But this song right here sounds like the original Wale that I really fell hard for. Of course it’s got the piano in the production, so that’s an automatic plus, but Wale, Meek Mill and Rick Ross all go hard and keep the hip hop honest. I’m definitely giving this a high rating in my iTunes. (Also, you have to love the Rick Ross bark.)

Dope remix. Maino recruits a bunch of artists for the remix to his Roscoe Dash assisted track “Let It Fly.” I’m not even that big a fan of Jim Jones and I enjoy most of the verses on here. MMG (Wale & Meek Mill) does their thing on here. Roscoe with chorus duties. Maino, in my opinion, is very underrated, so give this bad boy a listen!
But DJ Khaled? Realllllly? Come on son!
