Tyga is beefing with his label YMCMB, but that hasn’t slowed him down. Last month, the Los Angeles rapper dropped his highly-anticipated album with Chris Brown and today he delivered visuals for the latest single off his forthcoming album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. The track was produced by Kanye West and his frequent collaborator, Mike Dean.

Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint album dropped today, and one of the project’s standout tracks is a collaboration with her labelmates Drake and Lil Wayne titled, “Truffle Butter.” Some listeners might recognize the beat, along with Drizzy and Wayne’s verses, as they were previously featured on Mally Mall’s “Whatcha Say.”

It’s also been pointed out that “Truffle Butter” contains a sample of UK house star Maya Jane Coles, which sparked a backlash among some of her fans. She posted the following message on her Facebook page in response:
“It’s interesting to see all of the hateful comments about the Nicki Minaj track. As a producer that only makes music that I love, for me, it’s only an honor to have people from completely different scenes wanting to sample one of my productions. I NEVER compromise my own music. If I didn’t like it, why would I bother making it. If someone else likes what I have done and wants to sample it and use it in their own style then for me that is a huge compliment. just saying. PLUS also, why do people keep talking about money?? Record sales don’t make money anymore!!! This has nothing to do with money, I came from a hip hop background, that’s what got me into music in the first place. It’s so weird to have to explain myself about something I’ve always loved doing.”

Rising rapper Young Thug and Cash Money co-founder Birdman recently spoke with MTV about Thugga’s label situation and what to expect from him in the future.
During the interview, the Atlanta-based rapper said that he’s only signed to YMCMB, despite rumors of him being signed to other labels.
Thugga also revealed that he’s recording tracks with Nicki Minaj for her next album and his highly-anticipated debut, which Birdman said doesn’t have a release date yet.
