“Oh, my, gosh, look at her butt,” Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” instructs—and in the music video for the song, viewers have no choice but to do just that.

When Minaj isn’t jiggling, she’s dancing on a wildly impressed Drake, letting her dancers fawn over her, and playing around in the kitchen with whipped cream and bananas. Clearly, there is no suggestive imagery in this video. None at all. READ FULL STORY

PartyNextDoor drops Drake-featuring single 'Recognize'

When Drake first started promoting his OVO label signee PartyNextDoor the Toronto-based R&B singer was widely dismissed as a less compelling replacement for the Weeknd, who had by that point outgrown his early role as Drizzy’s pet project. Following up a shout out on his boss’s recent motivational anthem “0-100,” PND returns with the new single “Recognize,” that moves a little further away from Weeknd-esque atmospheric R&B to explore a harder-edged sound that combines the rhythms of Southern trap rap with rock’s aggressively distorted tones. As for PND’s vocal game, he seems to have picked up a few new tricks from Future and Young Thug.

“Recognize” also features a verse from Drake, the only guest appearance on the track listing for PND’s next full-length, PARTYNEXTDOOR TWOout July 22. According to the impromptu OVO Sound shareholder report in the coda to “0-100,” the singer is also scheduled to release something next spring, suggesting that the new record is more like a mixtape, and that his official debut album is still to come.

In other OVO news, according to Billboardthe title of Drake’s as yet unrecorded fourth album will be Views From the 6.

In rapper vocab test, Ghostface beats Drake, DMX, Kanye and Lil Wayne

Who would you bet had the bigger vocabulary: Drake or Ghostface Killah? What about Common or Ludacris?

A coder and designer named Matt Daniels put together a data analysis of rap lyrics to see which rappers had the biggest vocabularies and some of the results are surprising. Ghostface blows Drake out of the water when it comes to diversity of vocabulary: The Wu-Tang Clan member uses 5,774 unique words in his lyrics, while Drake only uses 3,522. In Common v.
