Seven months ago, Drake announced the delayment of Certified Lover Boy, due to wanting to take his time to recover from knee surgery stating “I’m just grateful to be back on my feet. I went through a little bit of a tough stretch with an injury and I’m back in tip-top form.”

“CLB is currently being cheffed in every way possible…I’m back in the studio with 40 tough. I’m just really excited about the music that we’re making and I feel like I’ve locked into a zone where I’m really trying to execute on a project that’s fulfilling for my soul.”

However, he didn’t break down the bad news without a treat. A month later, OVO Sound’s head honcho released Scary Hours 2 . Though it didn’t feature the Lil Durk-assisted track, “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” the project boasted features from Lil Baby (“Wants and Needs”) and Rick Ross (“Lemon Pepper Freestyle”). Drake also provided visual treatment to the opening track, “What’s Next.”

Six months later, Drake utilized ESPN’s Sportscenter to announce the release date of Certified Lover Boy via a cryptic message.

Since then, Drake used Billboard all over the country to reveal the featured artists of the project via their respective hometowns:

Shortly after, Kanye West allegedly put up Billboards in Toronto to promote his latest album, DONDA, to taunt the Certified Lover Boy as the beef between the two reignited last month following Drake’s verse on Trippie Redd‘s “Betrayal.”

Key Glock Releases ‘Yellow Tape 2’

Key Glock Yellow Tape 2

Dropping Yellow Tape via Paper Route Empire just a year ago, Key Glock gave us 16 tracks with production handled by Bandplay, LDG Beats and Sledgren, just to name a few.

Today, Key Glock returns with the sequel to his 2020-project with no features, but taps on the production services of Tay Keith, BandPlay, Buddah Bless, and several others. Released under his cousin Young Dolph’s Paper Route Empire once again, Key Glock tells HNHH that he never really planned on making a sequel, but the Memphis rapper blessed us with it, nonetheless.

“I never liked doing sequels. I never planned on even doing a sequel, but it’s more of, like, a statement,” Key Glock tells Hot New Hip Hop. “That color, it was my great grandmother’s favorite color. Y’all look at it like it’s yellow. I look at it like it’s gold, ‘cause I’m a player. But I just had to keep it going because the first one made so much of a statement, and I had to let ‘em know it’s actually yellow tape. When you see yellow tape, you know what it means– caution, beware, something dumb happened, something about to happen. But I’m letting you know it’s still yellow tape– this shit still happening, still about to happen. Like for real.”
