Kanye West is out here confusing everyone. Chief Keef has JAY-Z in his sights. Drake comes through with the win for Team Lightskin? It’s your Weekly Wrap locked and loaded with ample hip-hop debate ammunition to get you through the holiday weekend.
First things first – has Kanye West just confused everyone – maybe even himself or at the very least Universal? From it seeming like we would never get our hands on the Donda album to not only dropping it, receiving non-stop praise – then backlash from artists like Chris Brown and Soulja Boy – but then claiming Universal forced this version out without his permission… Yup, good ol’ Ye.
Has anyone noticed just how visible JAY-Z has seemed lately? Whether it’s turning up at the 40/40 18-year anniversary party and starring in an ‘About Love’ campaign with his wife Beyoncé or appearing on both Ye’s new album and the Certified Lover Boy project – could we be in store for a JAY album? Chief Keef thinks so and wants in.
Drake’s doing it all – even at the time of this writing and posting, he’s dominated the streaming giants of Apple Music and Spotify while also being project to easily sell well over 500,000 copies/streams of his CLB release, could this be the Team Lightskin win of all wins in 2021?
