It’s been a breakout year for Memphis, Tennessee producer Tay Keith, and Drake has played an important role in his success. It seems he's ready to cook up even more hits with the rising Memphis producer. - During the Nashville stop of his Aubrey and the Three Amigos tour with Migos, Drake revealed that he plans to get back in the studio with Tay Keith as soon as he’s off tour. - “I’m about to go finish this tour, I'ma go home. I’m gonna spend some time with my family, with my friends,” he said. “And I promise you that the next thing I’m doing is going right back to the studio with Tay Keith from Memphis, Tennessee and we gonna make us some more music.” - In addition to his work with Drake, Tay Keith also landed a high-profile placement this year on Eminem’s ‘Kamikaze,’ producing the track “Not Alike.” His BlockBoy JB collaborations “Shoot” and “Rover 2.0” have garnered some buzz, too. It seems like things are just heating up for the Memphis producer. - —@foxy_grandpa

Although Machine Gun Kelly dropped his Eminem diss track “Rap Devil” along with a music video, Em’s response “Killshot” debuted on YouTube without an accompanying set of visuals. - Despite this fact, the track broke YouTube’s record for most views for a hip- hop video in 24 hours anyway. - As ‘Billboard’ reports the song racked up 38.1 million views in its first 24 hours of release. This is the biggest debut for a hip-hop video ever, and the third-biggest debut in YouTube history across all genres. - The diss track was hotly anticipated and ended up dropping only on YouTube and AudioMack, making the broken record slightly less surprising. “Killshot” is now available on all streaming services, but has yet to show up amongst Spotify’s 200 most-streamed songs since it migrated over. - This means the vast majority of all “Killshot” streaming has been done on YouTube, helping to boost its numbers on the platform. - “Killshot” is destined to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart next week, although exactly where is tough to predict. It’s managed to earn almost as many YouTube views in four days (81.7 million) as “Rap Devil” has in two weeks (98.8 million). - However, recent changes to the Billboard Hot 100 algorithm calculations give less weight to unpaid streaming services like YouTube as compared paid ones like Apple Music and Spotify’s subscription tier. Since “Killshot” has fewer streams on the latter platforms, its standings could be negatively affected. —@foxy_grandpa

“Everybody considered that and took that as a drug line, when in all actuality it was just me talking about a description of the car. - Sometimes in my verses you can’t just take the line that you are questioning, you have to go to the line before or maybe a couple of lines before. - So it is really two-door preference, roof gone, George Jefferson, That white frost on that pound cake, which is the white paint job on the tan seat. - And the Duncan Hines is irrelevant is because I used a cake reference and an icing reference, Duncan Hines was just the tie-in, essentially.” —@kingpush 🐐🐐🐐

J.I.D.’s ‘DiCaprio 2’ has been hotly anticipated since the original’s release in 2015. In an Instagram post, he revealed some key details about the project: - “Aight here we go bruh, I got a new record coming out 9/19/2018 to begin this ‘Dicaprio 2’ journey. This project isn’t like [‘The Never Story’] or anything u heard from me b4, it isn’t my [‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’] or whatever else your are expecting it to be, ‘headass,’ lol.” - He also wrote about the involvement of Mac Miller, who J.I.D. said “helped post produce and organize on almost every song on here.” J.I.D. was going to tour with Miller and Thundercat before the former passed away on September 7. - Miller produced the track “Laundry Day” for J.I.D.’s Spillage Village collective. J.I.D. also contributed backing vocals to Miller’s “Self Care” off his last album, ‘Swimming.’

Mac Miller tragically passed away on September 7, prompting an outpouring of support from the rap community. - In the wake of his passing, new and old fans alike flocked to his extensive catalog of material, buoying all five of his albums plus his two commercially available mixtapes back onto the Billboard 200 albums chart. - His August 2018 album ‘Swimming’ led the way, racking up 67,000 equivalent album units last week.

The remainder of his album catalog, as well as his 2012 mixtape ‘Macadelic’ rounded out the rest of his chart appearances. - No. 6: ‘Swimming’ No. 26: ‘Best Day Ever’ No. 32: ‘GO:OD AM’ No. 49: ‘Blue Slide Park’ No. 50: ‘The Divine Feminine’ No. 59: ‘Watching Movies With the Sound Off’ No. 106: ‘Macadelic’ - Mac also landed a trio of ‘Swimming’ songs on the Hot 100 chart this week with “Self Care” (No. 33), “Hurt Feelings” (No. 70), and “Come Back to Earth” (No. 91). —@foxy_grandpa
