Eminem Reportedly Making Drake Diss Track

(Radio.com) Drake has been involved in some high profile beefs, like last summer's battle with Meek Mill. There have also been lower profiles beefs, such as his recent semi-entanglement with Joe Budden.

But a true test of hip hop prowess may be coming. According to a New York City's Hot 97's DJ Ebro, Eminem is preparing to make his very own Drake diss track. (listen to the broadcast here).

That same DJ claims to have spoken with Drake, who feels that such an attack is unlikely, but is ready should the gauntlet be thrown down. Read more here.

Britney Spears Streaming New Track 'Private Show'

(Radio.com) Britney Spears is ready to take on the world again with her upcoming album Glory, but for the moment she wants to give everyone a "Private Show." The singer premiered her latest track Thursday (August 4).

"Private Show" finds Spears showing off her funky side, which comes across in the snaps, claps and other percussive flares the song exhibits. Sure, it also contains instrumentation and synths (the elements listeners expect from a pop song-especially a Spears pop song), but "Private Show" feels largely stripped of those additions so that Spears' vocals can shine.

Spears delves into her deeper register on the second part of the chorus, singing "Work it work it, boy watch me work it/ Slide down my pole watch me spin it and twerk it." The way she plays with the meter provides an extra emphasis to the lyric's staccato-like rhythm, and shows a new direction for the singer. And then there's the bridge.

Recorded to give her voice a raw tinge, Spears goes full on fierce. She practically screams, "Strut it out, strut it out/ Eyes on me/ Watch me strike a pose/ Feel my heat." Glory will be released on August 26th. Listen to "Private Show" here.

Fetty Wap and Masika Kalysha Battle Over Daughter On Reality TV

(Radio.com) The drama between Fetty Wap and Masika Kalysha over their four-month-old daughter Khari Barbie Maxwell will make its way to reality TV this fall. Both will appear on the third season of Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood.

When Kalysha announced her pregnancy in 2015 and claimed Fetty as the father, it seemed like news to him. In the show's trailer, which follows Fetty and Kalysha while she's still pregnant, she questions going to court over her baby. "I was in a relationship with a rapper," she says in the trailer. "Everything was amazing and then I got pregnant. He decided to pretty much deny that this is his child."

Fetty later changed his tune and both welcomed their daughter into the world in early 2016, but they've continued to spar online (via XXL Mag). In late June, Kalysha got mad at Fetty for posting a picture of their daughter. The couple had reportedly agreed to keep their daughter out of the spotlight during the first three months of her life. Kalysha also questioned his commitment as a father, claiming he hadn't visited child like he said he would.

Ray J and his fiancee Princess Love also appear on the new season, as the two get ready to wed. Watch the trailer here.
