News : Kendrick Reignites Drake Beef

News : Kendrick Reignites Drake Beef

It looks like Kendrick Lamar might've reinvigorated his feud with Drake during a guest verse on Jay Rock's "Pay For It." The "i" rapper fired the first shot last summer in his controversial verse on Big Sean's "Control," calling out Drake (and pretty much the rest of the rap game), and kept things going at that year's BET Hip-Hop Awards. For his part, Drake responded in an interview at New York University by subtly dissing Lamar, saying "when it comes to competition, I'm more worried about consistency, about bodies of work."

Though things cooled down afterwards, K-Dot's "Pay For It" verse seems to indicate renewed hostilities. "Been dissecting your motormouth until I break down the engine," he raps, a reference to Drake's name for himself in "The Language." "See my opponent then, cease your existence / Endin' our friendship, baby, I'd rather die alone," he continues. Harsh words.

Earlier this month Young Money's resident shit-stirrer, Tyga, revealed that he doesn't "like Drake as a person," so yeah, it's been a rough month for Drizzy.

Singles : Ace Hood : We Don't ft. Rich Homie Quan

Singles : Ace Hood : We Don't ft. Rich Homie Quan

Listen To : Ace Hood : We Don't

At the top of this year, Ace Hood released his mixtape, Starvation 3, but since then he remained rather quiet as far as solo music goes. That all changes today though, as Ace returns with his new single, "We Don't," featuring Rich Homie Quan. Ace and Quan are as honest as ever on this release, explaining exactly why they don't mess with certain people.

No word yet if this club-ready single will be featured on a new project from Ace, but seeing that he is one of the hardest working artists in the game, we wouldn't be surprised. Listen to the new single above.

Bars : USA : WA : Seattle : Rob Roy

Bars : USA : WA : Seattle : Rob Roy

About Rob Roy
A Rob Roy is a version of a Manhattan made with Scotch. Rob Roy (1671–1734), the cocktail's namesake, was an outlaw-hero, the Scottish version of Robin Hood. The Rob Roy is a swankish '70s cocktail lounge in Belltown—the kind with stacked flagstone behind the bar, a black-leather-padded wall, low lighting, and general comfiness. Furthermore, it's run by the awesome Anu Apte (of the Washington State Bartenders Guild), and the cocktails are marvelous.

Rob Roy Review By Jacob M. : Seattle, WA
This is by far my favorite bar/lounge I've been too in Seattle.  Its probably one of my favorite in the country.  The setting is perfect for sitting and talking to your friends for hours.  The interior is perfect for any occasion whether its getting off work or taking a date out.  Music is always fitting and the staff is dressed nice(no uniforms), but not pretentious.  The reason to come here though are the drinks themselves.

The old fashion starts by selecting one of their many bourbons.  One time I got a special blend that was a small batch(upped the price a bit, but worth it).  The bartender puts a glove on, pulls out a block of ice, and saws off a single large piece that he then whittles down with a knife till it fits in your glass.  They mix the cane sugar, bourbon, orange bitters and pour it over the ice.  Topped off with real candied cherries and a zest of orange that is squeezed around the edge of the glass (the smell enhances the drink more then you'd think).

The other cocktails are great, but the old fashion is perfect.
