A few nights ago in Houston, Drake brought J.Prince’s son Jas, on stage and presented him with a Lamborghini for his 23rd birthday. Jas was the liaison that introduced Drizzy to Lil Wayne. Hopefully, it came with a full tank of gas.

Initially, he was a spot higher but eventually fell down a notch. Congrats, nonetheless. Drake was a staple on radio all year, whether it was “Bedrock” with Young Money, “Money to Blow” with Baby and Lil Wayne, “Forever” with Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem, or any one of the songs from So Far Gone that stayed in rotation. “He’s been on the […]
[vodpod id=Video.4603805&w=425&h=350&fv=] Busy day for Drake today. He’s currently headlining Kodak’s “So Kodak” campaign concert in NY. But earlier, Drizzy stopped by Hot 97 to chop it up with Angie after his interview with CBS News’ Katie Couric.

As many of you know, Drake is a huge fan of Aaliyah as evidenced by TML‘s “Unforgettable” which samples her song “At Your Best”.

RIP Baby Girl.
The homie from Exclusive Access crashed the party yesterday at Drake’s second video shoot in the ATL. No shots from the actual video yet, just some behind the scenes of the other main principals on the other side. I promise you pervs, I won’t rest til I get your Paris Morton shot. Ha!
“And no I’m not sayin’ I’m the nicest. I just live life like it.” Drake’s verse didn’t make the cut on “Aston Martin Music”, but his bars have just been released and it’s clear that he should’ve. Oh well. Teflon Don in stores July 20th. nation

A few weeks ago, Drake told Funkmaster Flex backstage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam that he drew inspiration for his sophomore LP after listening to Yeezy’s new set. That’s powerful.
These days, it seems as if nearly every song utilizes truncated similes. The style pioneered by Big Sean has been used by Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and most notably, Drake.
