Bops That Just Dropped: New DJ Khaled, Offset and Others

This week’s collection of new releases includes new DJ Khaled,  JID and Dro Kenji albums, as well as fresh joints from Offset, Lil Tjay, Fabolous, Jim Jones, Lil Gnar, 22Gz, Joey Bada$$, Nav, Shani Boni, BlueBucksClan, SleazyWorld Go and others.

If there’s one thing DJ Khaled knows, it’s how to build hype. He’s arguably one of the greatest hypemen of all time. For his thirteenth studio album, God Did, he helped create excitement around the star-studded project by releasing the top-10 single, “Staying Alive.” Not only did he release a lit collaboration with Drake and Lil Baby, prior to his latest album dropping, he also teased fans with what was being touted as a G.O.A.T.-ed Jay-Z verse.

Although the album that also features Lil Wayne, Latto, City Girls, Nardo Wick and many others may not be the album of the year, Khaled’s Hov-assisted track hands down features one of the verses of the year.

Even though nothing has been confirmed, it seems as if one of hip-hop’s favorite groups, Migos, has broken up. First we found out that Quavo and Takeoff were starting a new group called Unc and Phew. And now we’re learning that Offset is suing the record label he and his (former) group members were synonymous with, Quality Control.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/reel/ChscWPcvWEq/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

In the last few days, Migos fans were treated to new tracks from both Unc and Phew and Offset. Set may be going solo, but he raps alongside Moneybagg Yo on his latest single, “Code,” while Quavo and Takeoff link up with the No. 1 Stunna Birdman for their joint single, “Big Stunna.”

Every week a bunch of new projects, songs and snippets hit the airwaves and streaming platforms and it can be a tall task sorting through all of the noise. Luckily, ONE37pm is here to help keep you in tune with what should be on your radar. Tap in with our weekly roundup below and don’t forget to come back every week for a rundown of what’s new in music.

15 of Our Favorite Met Gala-Inspired Rap Lyrics

It’s that time of year again. It’s the first Monday in May, which means the Met Gala is once again upon us. This year the hotly anticipated gala officially returns to its normally scheduled programming. As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the annual event, also known as the Costume Institute Gala, was placed on hold in 2020, while last year’s downsized version took place in September during New York Fashion Week.

The Met’s 2022 theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion. It’s the second half of the Costume Institute’s two-part exhibition dedicated to American fashion, which began with 2021’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. For this year’s Met festivities, Hollywood A-Listers Regina King, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are holding down the co-hosting duties.

The Met Gala raises funds that benefit programs and exhibitions sponsored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It also gives celebs a reason to pop out in some of the most unique and eye-catching outfits. With nicknames like the Super Bowl of fashion and fashion’s biggest night out, the Met Gala is arguably the biggest night in fashion. Famous faces from all walks of entertainment come together in celebration of the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly fashion exhibition. It’s a big deal not only for the fashion world, but for the world of hip-hop as well.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cc8xdOnKsXZ/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Nowadays, hip-hop heavyweights are permanent fixtures on the Met’s red carpet and at the after-party. The likes of Ye, Megan Thee Stallion, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Diddy, Migos, JAY-Z and many, many others have made their presence felt at the Met Gala. So it should come as no surprise that the Met Gala has been the subject of quite a few rap songs and lyrics. The star-studded affair has inspired some dope bars, as well as some not-so-dope lyrics. The gala has been mentioned by rap stars who have attended and popular artists who haven’t been lucky enough to strut their stuff at the event. In honor of the 2022 Met Gala, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Met Gala raps.

DJ Khaled and Drake’s Top Collaborations, Ranked

DJ Khaled is a multifaceted entertainer. He’s a DJ’s, a producer, a record executive, an undisputed hitmaker, he’s groomed platinum artists and is amazing at promoting the hell out of stuff he’s attached to. The Grammy Award winner also has a knack for collaborating with Drake. The We The Best mogul has been telling us that he’s the best for a minute now. So it’s only right that he teams up with the crème de la crème. The duo have been linking up for more than a decade and it seems like they have more music on the way.

Khaled, who recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, teased an upcoming track with Drizzy. In a video posted to his Instagram story, Khaled can be heard saying, “They didn’t believe in us. Drake did.” The social clip was accompanied by a caption that read, “#DRAKEDID ! Vocals been in !!!! ALBUM MODE !”

Khaled’s last album, Khaled Khaled dropped in 2021. Led by two solo Drake joints it became his third album to top the Billboard 200. While we wait to see what these two cook up next, let’s look back at DJ Khaled and Drake’s top collaborations from the past.

7. “Fed Up” – DJ Khaled featuring Usher, Drake, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/4zNGks3TORE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2009

Album: Victory

“Fed Up” was the first official link up between DJ Khaled and Drake. It’s probably also their most forgettable collaboration to date. Although this The Runners-produced track features an all-star cast it just didn’t hit like their follow ups.

6. “To the Max” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ruUU5933pjQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2017

Album: Grateful

DJ Khaled’s 2017 album, Grateful, featured a few huge records. Top 10 hits like “I’m the One,” “Wild Thoughts” and “Shining” overshadowed every other song featured on the album, even the Drake song, “To the Max.” One of the least successful collabs between the dynamic duo, “To the Max” only peaked at 53 on the Billboard Hot 100. The experimental track is still a banger however.

5. “Greece” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NMlBB2pK5qo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2020

Album: Khaled Khaled

“Greece” was first heard when it leaked along with a bunch of other Drake tracks in 2020. The platinum single was an international hit. It charted in the top 10 in several countries, including the US, Canada, New Zealand and Belgium, topping the singles chart in Greece. A dope record, “Greece” just doesn’t compete with Khaled and Drizzy’s best joints.

4. “Popstar” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3CxtK7-XtE0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2020

Album: Khaled Khaled

Ever so often Drake really goes off on a track, and “Popstar” definitely falls into that category. 6 God with his spicy flow and boastful lyrics floats over the production crafted by one of his go-to producers, OZ. Popstar Justin Bieber stars in the music video that was just as entertaining as the song, which is certified 3x platinum.

3. “For Free” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3W6zD3L7H00" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2016

Album: Major Key

Both DJ Khaled and Drake were on top of the world in 2016. Drizzy dropped one of his biggest albums, VIEWS and Khaled had a career resurgence off the strength of him being him. The two joined forces for the first single to Khaled’s ninth album, Major Key. “For Free” samples and references several cult classics, including Too Short’s “Blow the Whistle,” Akinyele’s “Fuck Me For Free” and Kendrick Lamar’s “For Free? (Interlude).”

2. “No New Friends” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E2Lw9YWLVts" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2013

Album: Suffering from Success

Gang, gang, gang! “No New Friends” was an ode to all of the day-ones out there. The song was initially a remix to Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” and featured contributions from Future. Produced by Boi-1da, Vinylz and Noah “40” Shebib, the final version of No New Friends” became Khaled’s sixth Top 40 hit.

1. “I’m on One” – DJ Khaled featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Z09lYqdxqzo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Released: 2011

Album: We the Best Forever

 “I’m on One” helped set the tone for summer 2011. Drake, Ross and Wayne had three of the most anticipated albums at the time of this track’s release and it lived up to all of the hype that they built up. The Grammy nominated single peaked in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
