To tide us over until the release of his third studio album, Views From the 6, it’s been rumored since back in November that we’d be treated to a mixtape from (arguably) rap’s biggest star, Drake.
So, on the same day that we got a whole new clothing line and a new song from Kanye West, Drake came through to steal the thunder, dropping a 17-track mixtape titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, featuring OVO artist PARTYNEXTDOOR, G.O.O.D Music’s Travi$ Scott, and of course, Lil Wayne.

The Seattle Seahawks RB is getting ready for the superbowl as well as celebrating a new strand up Bud named in his honor. Read more on TMZ:
After a successful sell-out last season with Beastmode 1.0, the owner of Queen Anne Cannabis Club in Seattle, “Diggity” Johnson, decided to come back this season withBeastmode 2.0, which has 5% more THC, than last year’s strain!
Marshawn Lynch is getting one of the highest honors one can receive in Seattle — a SECOND strain of weed has been named after the NFL star … and we’re told it’s as strong as Beastmode himself.
We spoke with Nate “Diggity” Johnson — owner of the Queen Anne Cannabis Club in Seattle — who tells us that after the original “Beastmode” strain sold so well last year, growers wanted to up the ante with a more powerful strain in the hopes the Seahawks would get back to the Super Bowl.
The bet paid off … and “Diggity” says the new stuff (called Beastmode 2.0) has 5% more THC than last year’s Beastmode weed — which flew off the shelves.
“It’s a super pain reliever,” Diggity says … “And hits you just like Marshawn — hard and fast.”
Then after you smoke it … FeastMode?Read more
50 Cent Addresses SBOE Affiliate Chain Snatch to cap off what’s been a sizzling and public beef with Slowbucks since 2014 and the noted “0 to 300″ G-Unit diss track.
50 Cent Addresses SBOE Affiliate Chain Snatch by taking to his Instagram and making some otherwise harsh pokes, jokes and comments aimed at the ‘Slow Bucks Over Everything’ camp.
Fif shared a photo on Instagram of SBOE affiliate Sid Bounce’s diamond cross chain with the caption, “DAMN BOY!! Ya’ll looking like butt cheeks. Hit something come on, for old times sake. I don’t miss nothing CT. hello!! #FatManWhatYouGoneDo. SBOE KEEP IT COOL NOW. shhh [sic].”
Sources say in 50 Cent Addresses SBOE Affiliate Chain Snatch he also went to interact with his comment section and offered up more commentary:
The New York emcee also interacted with followers in his comments section, telling them that “the chain is in CT now.” Fif’s post was later taken down, and Sid Bounce has yet to comment on the situation…
While this ongoing feud has had 50 clowning for months, some say the stunts are unnecessary. Others counter saying some things ARE necessary, and behind closed doors knows what it is. A little disrespect obviously goes a LONG way, depending on who you’re aiming at. (Yikes!) Check the gallery for 50’s IG posts.Read more

Rick Ross, move over -- J. Cole just topped your first week sales record for 2014. Rozay's Mastermind moved 179,000 units in its first week back in March, but now his tally's been handily topped by that of Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The official numbers just came in, and it looks like Cole sold a whopping 361,120 copies of his new project.
Topping early projections by almost 100,000 units, Cole has finally unseated Taylor Swift at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. This is even more impressive when you consider that we didn't even know about the album a month ago, and the fact that there was basically no marketing around 2014 Forest Hills Drive.
On Wednesday night (December 10), J. Cole, whose 2014 Forrest Hills Drive album is now in stores, promoted his latest body of work with a performance on Late Show with David Letterman. But given recent racial injustices and lack of indictments in the respective deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of police, the MC found it more appropriate to perform “Be Free” rater than a song from the project.
Released back in August, the track is a passionate display of Cole’s take on how Blacks are clearly undervalued in these “United States.” That said, the Dreamville founder, while garbed in all black, ran through a live rendition of the tune, but spit an unheard closing verse that’s sure to re-ignite the conversations on prejudice in the Hip-Hop community.
2014 Forrest Hills Drive can be found on iTunes. See Cole’s performance below.

Thanks to the Internets, a snippet of that conversation made its way to our desktop.Read more

I kinda figured B.Jay aka Bloody Jay was going to say something considering he rides that A1FBG flag high right now with Rocko. This kind of puts things into perspective for me right now regarding Gucci's tweets. So I guess we can put all the conspiracy theories to bed now because the real ATL is not treating it as such. B.Jay comes with somewhat of a laid back diss record right here too which is kinda of surprising from me already being a Jay fan. This record aint all that crazy too me but the fact that he even spent time on it lets me know Gucci in some shit right now. S/o to Bloody Jay and XclusivesZone.net for the premiere.

Let me start this post off by saying Im probably one of the last dudes alive you would think who does this blog shit. Thats if you knew my story and the people whom I grew up with and kicked it with. My potna Shane Biggz was one of those people who helped shaped the individual that I am today and one of the main reasons we go so dumb over here at Gothaze.com. Today marks a 1 year anniversary of his death which we are going to celebrate by smoking hella blunts in my fam honor because thats just what we do. I without a shadow of a doubt know he is with that shit lol. The main focus of this blog was to simply honor a dude who kept me moving with this when everybody else laughed. To bring the light to a Street Dude who knew of better shit in the world than just the streets. When I say that I mean he knew the streets were just a stepping stone to a bigger legit picture. Alot of dudes love that bullshit in the streets and want to stay forever mainly because they are lazy as fuck. The true hustlers and go gettas dont just sell drugs they can move anything and that was Suga Shane Biggz str8 up. It didnt matter if it cost 5 racks or 30 racks he would find a way to make the play happen. He dreamed of owning his own adult care facility which he was on the way to having in 2 more years with the moves he was making. He always kept a 2 or 3 whips and maintained a job while hustling. Alot of dudes cant claim real legit "street status" but my G could. I could go on an on how my G was this and that but I wont because he wouldnt have wanted me to say this much lls. So s/o to everyone who lost a real friend in their lifetime and I appreciate yall taking the time out to read about mine. SaluteRead more
