After a five-month ceasefire in the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef , the latter rekindled his feud with Drake Saturday with the arrival of Mill’s surprise new EP 4/4 , featuring a cut aimed directly at the Toronto rapper. The two previously traded diss tracks, onstage barbs and backhanded tweets in the summer of 2015, with Mill firing “Wanna Know” and Drake unleashing “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.” 11 Biggest Beefs of 2015 Mill reignites the feud on the 4/4 track “I’m Da Plug Freestyle,” first by stepping on Drake and Future’s own What a Time to Be Alive cut “Jumpman,” which also served as the basis for Kanye West’s Nike-blasting track “Facts.” “Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman / Ain’t nobody tell ’em this ain’t what they want, man / You ain’t really write it, I’m like ‘who’s your stuntman?,'” Mill raps, once again calling into the question whether Drake uses a ghostwriter, which sparked the beef in the first place. Later on the freestyle, Mill references Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and also circles back at one of the more biting lines from Drake’s “Back to Back,” “Is that your world tour, or your girl’s tour?,” a knock that the Philadelphia rapper was the opening act for his girlfriend, Nicki Minaj. “Was that my girl’s tour or the world tour? / I do not know what you pussy niggas goin’ for / This that hundred-K a night when you perform tour / Swimmin’ in that good pussy while you’re on tour,” Mill fired back. However, “I’m Da Plug Freestyle” might be too little, too late in Mill’s beef with Drake as “Back to Back” was already nominated for a Best Rap Performance Grammy, a rarity for a non-album diss track.

Killing Joke have cancelled their planned 26-date North American tour.
Father John Misty is hitting the road, beginning on March 30th in Santa Ana, CA, at the Observatory. Josh Tillman’s newly added North American dates round out a 36-date tour, which ends in Europe. This leg of the tour culminates on May 31st in Oslo, Norway. In conjunction with his concert dates, he has released a Pandora mixtape and the streaming music site is also offering a tour presale , beginning on January 11th at noon local time. Father John Misty Drops Taylor Swift Cover After Crazy Dream The exclusive mixtape compiles songs curated by Father John Misty in anticipation of his tour and includes eight acoustic tracks, which he recorded live in London. The set also features some funny “rejected Pandora promos,” several of which he shared earlier on his SoundCloud page . The Pandora promos feature Tillman speaking in an exaggerated radio announcer voice and showcase his well-known humor. “Promo #9,” for example, boasts “Whether you’re snorting rails of Tide off priceless Matisse cutouts or stuck at home because of your dismal Uber rating, my customized mixtape is guaranteed to be 100-percent Ed Sheeran. That’s Ed Sheeran all the time on Father John Misty Radio.” The clever, goof marketing promos are not the first time he’s shared snarky recordings
