Meek Mill To Release His Own Version Of Drake’s “Summer Sixteen”?

(AllHipHop News) It seems as if the drama between Meek Mill and Drake is not close to coming to an end any time soon. After Meek answered Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” track with his own diss record “War Pain” in January, the Dream Chaser could be ready to fire more shots at his rival on a remix of the Views From The 6 single.

According to DJ Akademiks, Meek is set to drop his own version of “Summer Sixteen.” The online personality posted videos to his Instagram page of what is said to be the Philadelphia rhymer’s take on Drake’s song.

“Yes… [Meek Mill] is coming out with a SUMMER 16 remix,” wrote Akademiks in the caption of one vid. Two other clips show Meek riding in a car apparently listening to his “Summer Sixteen” remix.

There is still a question if the public will even get to hear new tracks from Meek in the near future. A judge ordered him not to release any music during a 90-day house arrest for violating his probation. The “Ima Boss” rapper is appealing that ruling.

Businessman Don Peebles Says Jay Z Fits White America’s Code Of A Black Man (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Jay Z, the drug dealer turned rapper turned businessman, has actually been both praised and criticized for his ascent to the 1%. Famed real estate developer R. Donahue “Don” Peebles spoke with Nitecap with Peter Bailey about mainstream America’s perception of Jay. The discussion centered around the idea of black youth feeling the need to come from struggle or a life of crime to become successful.

Peebles stated:

That is how American society is comfortable defining black men. Unfortunately, we perpetuate it, because we as a community will hold them up as role models. We will buy into that. It’s a safe example for white America to see black men doing this as opposed to running a business like I am or being Robert Smith of Vista.

That’s different. That doesn’t fit the box. Jay Z fits the box, and he fits the code. Think about: Did Mick Jagger have that kind of influence over Richard Nixon or Ronald Reagan? Did Frank Sinatra become the spokesperson for the Reagans?

Entertainment is a business, but the entertainers are not those that are setting policy or are role models held up for their kids. Very few white parents want their kids to grow up and be Justin Bieber or Britney Spears. They’re not saying put all your eggs into being Britney Spears. They’re saying put all your eggs into getting an education and that the American Dream is fully accessible to you.

As the founder, chairman and CEO of the Peebles Corporation, Peebles runs the largest African American-owned real estate development and ownership company in the United States. The 56-year-old entrepreneur has actually also been very active in Democratic politics, and he is an author of two books.
