Lupe Fiasco, who is promising to drop three final albums, just gifted his fans with the teaser track “Express.” The cover art for the song is inspired by the Panda Express food chain, cleverly playing on the instrumental sample of Desiigner’s “Panda.” The first of the album trilogy to be released is titled DROGAS.

K Camp is known to have the club bangers on deck, and he’s coming even harder now that his upcoming projec gears up for release. Just days after the release of Future and The Weeknd’s “Low Life” video, the Atlanta rapper decided to drop his unofficial remix with “Slum Life. [VIBE]

It looks like the beef between Joey Bada$$ and Troy Ave is far from over. The two Brooklyn-bred rappers have been sparring on social media and on wax. Joey stopped by Sway In The Morning to get a few things off his chest, and although he previously vowed to put the beef to bed, he’s no longer playing nice. Joey dropped a freestyle called “5 Fingers Of Death” where he slipped in a few punchlines at Troy Ave’s expense. He raps, “Got the whole beast coast coming for your skull/The karma gon’ catch up, the albums sales won’t/The truth just went up, my collar gone show/Holla back when you getting 60 stacks for a show/” Ouch!

Speaking of Troy Ave, the Brooklyn MC just tacked on a serious PSA about suicide as the intro of his video for “Bada$$”. A few lines in that very song take a jab at the death of Joey’s friend Capital Steez who took his own life. The PSA might have been inspired by Styles P and others on social media taking the rapper to task for making fun of such a serious issue. [XXL]
