Would You Like A Tour?
— Drizzy (@Drake) June 16, 2013
I had a feeling something like this would be announced soon after Drake shot off the tweet above a couple days ago. Drizzy plans on hitting the road, starting September 25th in Portland, OR, with Future Hendrix and Martial Art Miguel. Check out the 41 North American dates below and see if Would You Like A Tour? will be making a stop in your neck of the woods. Tickets available here.
Official BTS footage of Khaled’s “No New Friends” clip with Wayne, Ross and Drake. Suffering From Success and Nothing Was The Same all on the way!
After getting some of the most hilarious memes, possibly of all time, due to Drake’s throwback Dada get-up, we now get to take a glimpse into the nostalgia that the “No New Friends” visuals provide. DJ Khaled’s Suffering From Success album coming later this year. Visuals are also edited for now, so I’ll update it with explicit as soon as they surface.
While many are anticipating to see whether or not Birdman, Wayne and Drake are actually going to go through with this Big Tymers 2.0 project (that’s what we’ll call it for now), Mannie Fresh, an ORIGINAL member of the Big Tymers knows it won’t be an OFFICIAL Big Tymers LP without his participation. Praising the likes of Sherbert and Wayne, Mannie chimed in on the topic and wants people to know that there isn’t any bad blood between his former camp.
*Heads to Spotify and turns on Big Tymers playlist*
A Big Tymers reunion album with Sherbert added to the line up? Well, that’s what Wayne is alluding to at the moment. That could be VERY interesting to listen to, right?
In an industry where radio is important AND it isn’t, choosing one of these features could be very crucial for your FIRST official introduction to the game. On one hand, a Sherbert feature could place you directly in front of HIS female fan base along with heavy rotation on urban radio outlets and an assortment of Pop stations too since he’s probably being deemed as the friendlier side of hip-hop. His endorsement deals will probably pay a smidge of attention to who he’s co-signing and judging how well the song does, Drake may even contemplate bringing you into the OVO hut. But with this #NoNewFriends movement, that’s highly unlikely. Though Drake is VERY finicky about who he stands next to in regards to anything so this could be a major statement for said artist OUTSIDE the music.
And then we have Kendrick Lamar, hip-hop’s brightest star at the moment who created 2012′s best piece of rap work. Oh and it was his OFFICIAL debut, just wanted to throw that out there. Aside from that, holding your own with Kendrick Lamar could prove to fans and critics that said artist is ready to lyrically toy around with the greats. Radio play might not be big since Kendrick was never really a HEAVY radio hitter. Even his collaboration with Drake, “Poetic Justice” only peaked at 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. His lead single and fan favorite, “Swimming Pools” only caught a #17 slot. However, Kendrick’s presence and influence in the game right now is impeccable. The kid hits EVERY festival stage throughout the world so that could mean surprise performances from said artist.
This is just me spit balling random facts right now BUT I think you can see where I’m going. So with said facts given and your own applied knowledge, if YOU were a new artist and had the ability to put either one one of these guys on your first official single, who would it be? VOTE!
Well Drizzy has a point, we do love Beyonce. Fresh off the release of “No New Friends,” with DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne and Ricks Ross, Drake drops “Girls Love Beyonce.”
The single so many of us have been waiting for is finally here. The Khaled-helmed single features Young Money comrades Drake and Wayne, while the MMG boss joins them. DJ Khaled’s Suffering From Success is coming soon. Head below to listen to “No New Friends.”
The Jordan Brand Classic was held at the Barclays Center over the weekend and Drizzy Drake was the scheduled performer for Saturday nights festivities. The tracks he performs span across “HYFR,” “The Motto,” “Crew Love” and more, so I’ll let the footage do the talking.
