Bad Boy Records rapper Machine Gun Kelly is the latest hip-hop artist to add his personal spin to Young Money star Drake's buzzing "Started From the Bottom" anthem.
On the record, MGK takes listeners into his early come-up, years before his current Bad Boy fame.
MGK takes on the Mike Zombie-produced cut. "Now they say Illuminati is the cause, or maybe every one of y'all is lazy and I just worked hard..." Machine Gun Kelly is the latest rapper to take a spin at Drake's latest hard-hitting "Started From The Bottom," recalling his own journey to the top. The Cleveland MC goes in on the freestyle, no lie. Now that he's earned his spot as a shining star on the Bad Boy roster, MGK wants everyone to know that ain't sh*t changed - just the money he's making. (The Source)
Over the weekend, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa remixed Drizzy's new smash.
So yesterday YMCMB's own, Drake, hit the interwebs with a new track called "Started From The Bottom" much to the delight of fans. Well today the Taylor Gang's own, Wiz Khalifa, returns with a dope new remix to the track. Wiz took to the interwebs this morning and let loose of his take on the new track, which he stated "I think it relates to all of us", before dropping the track. Wiz hits the track running after Drizzy does his thing and speaks about his rise throughout the game, and do so in truly impressive manner. (Stupid Dope)
Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy opted out of including Drizzy to tell his own story of struggle on a separate remix.
The remixes keep coming. An hour after Wiz Khalifa unleashed his freestyle, Soulja Boy drops off a remix to Drake's new single "Started From the Bottom." The 22-year-old rapper reps for his clique and sees dollar signs on his money-minded verse. "I'm on the jet getting head in the sky/ Shoot me in my face if I ever tell a lie," raps the SODMG leader. (Rap-Up)
Rather than wait until later this month, Drake unleashed his new record heading into the weekend.
"I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I'm excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn't feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we've been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork...I think it's safe to say we're back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon." (October's Very Own)
