Toronto, ON – Along with Meek Mill diss, “Charged Up,” we bring you 2 new records from Drake that aired on OVO Sound Radio. This is “Right Hand” and “Hotline” – a remix to D.R.A.M.’s hit, “Cha Cha.” Check them out below.
Toronto, ON – And there it is. A few days after Meek Mill accused Drake of using OVO’s Quentin Miller as a ghostwriter for his contribution to Dreams Worth More Than Money, Drake responds with a scathing diss track. Aside from an Instagram reply sorta acknowledging the situation, Drake stayed quiet while other members of OVO spoke out against the claims. An hour into OVO Sound Radio, and without warning “Charged Up” dropped and despite no direct mention of Meek, it’s clear who Drizzy is talking too. The only question now is will whether Meek will record his own diss, or keep his thoughts on Twitter.
“Charged Up” is HipHopCanada’s Song Of The Day.
“Done doing favors for people/ Cause it ain’t like I need the money I get off of features” – Drake

Vancouver, BC – Canadian hip-hop veteran Madchild (of Swollen Members) is back on the road for a North American tour just shy of 40-dates.
After a performance inside Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory last night, Madchild will spend today promoting the new album before heading to Thornville, Ohio for the Gathering of the Juggalos. From there he’ll bang out 2 more US dates before a stop with Swollen at Chilliwack, BC’s Electric Love Music Festival on August 1. After that we’re looking at another 6 US shows before a long string of Canadian dates kicks off September 10 in Vancouver. We’re still looking for confirmation, but we expect Madchild’s tour DJ, DJ Dow Jones, will be on hand each step of the way.
Madchild is currently promoting his third studio album, Silver Tongue Devil, released today through Battle Axe Records earlier today and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Canada.
