Drake,Travis Scott and Metro Boomin are the latest artists to fall victim to leakers as a slew of songs from their respective stashes have hit the internet.
It’s unclear if these new leaks came from one source, but they include high-profile collaborations and alleged album cuts and leftovers that surfaced on social media and Reddit.
Drake’s leaks include a reference track for Beyoncé titled “Heat,” which she eventually turned into “HEATED” from her 2022 album Renaissance.
Another finds the 6 God linking with his Young Money mentor Lil Wayne over a Pharrell beat “Startrax,” which appears to be from 2018’s Tha Carter V.
There’s also a previously unreleased collaboration between Drizzy and his elusive OVO Sound signee PARTYNEXTDOOR called “Bricks,” rumored to have been recorded around 2017.
Travis Scott’s leaks span just about his entire career. The earliest, “Naked” featuring Bon Iver, is said to be from his 2013 Owl Pharaoh era, while “Poet Paradise” was recorded in 2015 around Rodeo.
Another appears to be from La Flame’s scrapped joint album with Kid Cudi, The Scotts. It’s called “Get Off Me” and features DJ Drama.
The leak that has Travis’ fans the most excited is the tentatively titled “Gold Blackberry,” which according to Reddit will be featured on his eagerly anticipated UTOPIA album.
Metro Boomin also got caught up in the leaking spree as a collaboration with Travis Scott, 21 Savage and James Blake called “Till Further Notice” hit the net. The song could be a leftover from his Heroes & Villains album, but some are hoping that Metro’s saving it for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack.
Drake, Travis and Metro aren’t the only rappers to spring a leak of late. Young Nudy was the victim of a massive breach in December that leaked about 172 songs. The 29-year-old angrily threatened to hunt down the hacker and cause him harm.
“I’ma say this shit one time, bro. I don’t know if y’all know, I’m not like other rappers, bro,” he said in a video posted online. “I’m 100 percent finna take my time out to find out 100 percent who exactly is leaking my music.
“And I’m 100 percent gonna pull up at whatever studio it is and I’m 100 percent gon’ beat your ass, on my momma.”
