The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
Cash Money/ Young Money, all one big family. The Birdman recently went out to Rochester Hills, Michigan, to be a surprise guest on Drake’s Away From Home Tour. Baby joined Drizzy for “4 My Town (Play Ball),” and after the show Drake shared some downtime with the multimillionaire CEO. Sitting in the Birdman’s tour-bus lounge, Drake told us about his recent trip to Jamaica where he shot the video for the Kanye West-produced “Find Your Love,” a track on the June 15 LP Thank Me Later.
“We went to Kingston,” Drake said. “We went to this ‘hood. They call it the ‘gully’ side. It’s bad out there, real bad. They had ‘Young Money’ sprayed on the gates, ‘Drake and Wayne,’ ’cause I came to shoot the video out there. I’m talking about you drive by people’s homes, they had ‘Drake,’ ‘Young Money,’ ‘Drake, Welcome Here,’ ‘Drake We Love You’ — crazy sh–, man. It was so crazy. This dude was like, ‘Original Weezy tha God! You tha boss! Weezy tha God!’ It’s crazy. They love us, ’cause we show love out there.”
It’s April 20 — you know what that means. Some people are celebrating green day, and we’re not talking about the rock band. In any event, check out these releases — some are celebrating today’s theme and some aren’t.

The Streets Is Talking: News and Notes From the Underground
No beef, the G’s are getting money. We spoke to Brisco and he told us that his feud with Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad is a thing of the past. Brisco took exception to one of Gucci’s references to him on the first BurrPrint mixtape and disses flew between Brisc and the Atlanta faction. It’s all water under the bridge and now these guys are focused on getting money and making music.
“I talked to Gucci two days ago. Everybody is good. Basically, it’s just solidifying the greatness of the artists. Some greats clash at the top. I used that as a steppingstone and we put everything behind us and put us in God’s hands. It really wasn’t no beef and we didn’t want it to lead to more unfortunate situations. I feel like it took real n—as to do it without Al Sharpton and political leaders. It’s no beef. … I’m about to do a record with Waka, Gucci, the whole set.”
Brisco’s Street Medicine LP is tentatively due in June through a partnership with Poe Boy Entertainment and Cash Money Records. His mixtape OG Kush is out now.
