The first incarnation of this song came out last year on Young Money Branded but this time around Drake got a helluva lineup to help him. Off the upcoming More Than A Game soundtrack.
While filming the new video Successful they break down the creative for it.
Looks like Drake learned his lesson from that Best I Ever Had video.
Once again Jay-Z takes bragging to another level over a Timbaland track.

Great story behind this- courtesy of Shake from 2dopeboyz.com:
I’m sure it’s well known, but I’m a pretty big fan of Mr. Bobby Ray. And I think it’s safe to say that 94% of the dopeboyz/girlz that frequent the site are as well. It’s also well known that I despise Atlantic Records. So with that said, I put together a collection of (tagless) joints that have leaked since the time I very first heard dude in hopes that it can spread around the internets and hopefully wake those dinosaurs up. Word is (via Wendy Day & Amir’s little convo awhile back) they really like B.o.B but are trying to force him into a 360 deal. And if he doesn’t conform, they are gonna shelve him. I mean, imagine if this was actually his debut album? Sheeiiiit… I vote we call/email/run-up-on Atlantic and tell them to stop fucking around.
I can just imagine how the conversation went…”that whole Best I Ever Had thing got the streets wondering…oh I know! Let’s do a record called Killers with a real street dude like Nipsey!”
No shots but I get it…this track bangs anyway. Download/Stream here
Anthony Mandler is a beast on direction and took a page from Das Efx’s “They Want Efx” – although I would’ve liked to see something different for the last verse by Kanye- this will do ; )
Somewhere along the line people started using the term freestyle very loosely and the next thing you know rappers are reading rhymes off of their blackberry and it’s still considered a freestyle.
That was definitely not the case when Mickey Factz made an appearance on DJ Semtex’s show over in the UK recently. This is what a real MC looks like…
Last Saturday he gave this set of the craziest ol’ school hip hop at the Do-Over party in LA. Make some room around wherever your watching this cause it will probably induce involuntary dancing.
