Drake And Lil Baby’s ‘Yes Indeed’ Is A Pokémon Adventure For The Ages

Drake is testing the outer limits of his dominance this summer. His current to-do list — drop Scorpion in June, go on tour with Migos, add a verse to every up-and-coming southern rapper within earshot — reads more like a strategic war plan. The latest upstart to get the Drake stimulus package is Lil Baby.

“Yes Indeed” is quintessential Drizzy. The OVO headmaster opens the song with his usual subject matter: raps about his decade-long dominance, boasts regarding his Young Money family, and mentions of his strip club dalliances. The verse is serviceable, but Lil Baby wisely decides to take advantage of a golden opportunity — not getting upstaged by Drake.

The Quality Control artist opens his verse with a bar so good it should have been a hook — “Cartier glasses, I won’t even peek at you / Yellow Ferrari like Pikachu” — in the process proving Pokémon references are forever. Baby continues to shred the beat with a breathless flow that proves he’s a star in the making.

In a November interview with MTV News, Lil Baby opened up about how he learned to rap from Migos and Young Thug.

“Naturally just me being in the studio I guess,” said Baby. “Like, I just picked [it] up. I been in the studio with Migos for weeks and weeks, and Thug and weeks and weeks, not me rapping, just hanging. But [there would be] time where it['d] just be me and them, so instead of us kicking it and talking, I’m ready to just sit down while they working.”

Nike Air Max 95 “Lemon Wash” Launches Overseas

Before “Pure Platinum,” “Red October” or “South Beach” controlled colorways, tones were tied to teams. Sports ruled the sneaker game with most models made to wear on court with uniforms or at best casually with fan gear.

The recently released Nike Air Max 95 “Lemon Wash” sees another retro runner from the Swoosh that can’t help us but think about the boys in blue up in Ann Arbor.

With no known nods to the Michigan Wolverines, this collegiate colorway is likely licensed more for lifestyle wear. Shades of yellow shift to navy on the leather upper, with mesh around the tongue and eyelets elevating this wear come warmer weather.

No need for your degree or a Charles Woodson jersey to wear these in 2018. Pairs are available now at SneakAvenue.

Cardi B Reveals The Sex Of Her Baby And 4 More Juicy Revelations From New Interview

Cardi B has always been candid about the pressures of fame, and now the “Be Careful” singer is opening up about potentially going to therapy.

“People used to be like, ‘maybe you should do therapy,’” Cardi stated. “And I used to be like, uh-uh, colored folks, we don’t need none of that. We just go to church, and we pray about it. And then it’s just like… I think it’s a little bit more than that. I don’t want people to think I’m not enjoying this moment, [but] it’s just a lot to handle.”

Meek Mill Wishes Nicki Minaj ‘Said Nothing’ About His Incarceration

Meek Mill has been on a prolific press run since his release from prison. The Philadelphia rapper has been interviewed by outlets as varied as NBC’s Dateline and Hot 97. Today (May 10), Mill appeared on “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his opioid addiction, having conversations with Kanye West, and how it feels to be free. One of the most illuminating moments from the Philadelphia MC’s visit was him sharing his thoughts on his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj and her comments on his incarceration.

“I wasn’t feeling that,” Mill said. “She shouldn’t have said nothing. And we leave it at that. I don’t feel no way. She know I wasn’t feeling that.”

“When it comes to freedom and stuff like that, I don’t care who it is,” Meek continued. “This could be Safaree, this could be anybody — if I know something, and that man’s freedom is on the line and I could say something to help the situation, it’s right or wrong.”

In an April Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Nicki was asked about Meek Mill and his ongoing issues with the criminal justice system. The Pinkprint rapper mentions that she had no problems with Genece Brinkley, the controversial judge who presides over Meek’s case.

“The judge in question did everything I asked of her,” Nicki said. “So I can’t bad-mouth her because I met her personally and I know what she said to us, and he [Meek] knows that.”

Nicki later told Lowe that she will go into more detail about Meek on her album. It looks like the former lovers both have a lot to get off their chest with their new music.

Sporting the same sole tooling as its predecessor with a slightly less aggressive upper, preview the self explantatory style below and expect these to hit shelves near the end of the year.
