Social media timelines have been flooded with reaction to Drake’s new album, Views, specifically, Drizzy’s lyrics on his track “Hype.”

The Toronto rapper not only talks about his friend Rihanna, whom he recently has been rumored to be hooking up with, but also presumably raps about his beef with Meek Mill.

Here are five lyrics you should know from the hot track.

(Probably) About Meek Mill: “Last year I know you learned your lesson, I could GPS you if you need addressin’ / Boss up, I’m the bigger homie, But I’m one year older than my lil homie.”

(Probably) About Meek Mill: “Don’t get along man, we tried it, What’s the point in eve trying? / I hate a goofy especially, They always dying’ to mention me / They gotta die out eventually, I cannot give you the recipe.”

You might remember, last year, Meek and Drake delivered several diss tracks to one another and if were were take a poll, Drake would have been the winner.

On Rihanna: “Chasin’ women a distraction, they want to be on TV right next to me,” Drake raps. “You cannot be right here next to me. Don’t you see RiRi right next to me?”

It’s worth noting that the singer is also featured on a track titled, “Too Good” from Drake’s newly released LP.

Sound off: Were the rumors true? Are Drake and Rihanna seriously dating? Is she standing next to him?



Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
