While I was stuck in elevators in Manhattan last night, Aubrey was in L.A. doing a stupendous job hosting the 2014 Espy Awards. Word on road (see what I did there lol) is Drake killed the gig with his eyes closed. We even got a new song (sort of) from him and Brian McKnight and HE finally got some facetime with his long time crush, Skylar.
Last night at ESPN’s ESPY awards Drake stole the show with his comedy skit and in the video above check out Drake & Brian Mcknight perform a rendition of ‘Side Pieces’.
Last night ESPN held their annual ESPY Awards and word was there would be a skit that involved Drake and Blake Griffin, well that was true and above you can check out this hilarious skit.
Drake was set to confirm the album title Tuesday morning (July 15) as part of an exhaustive roster of upcoming projects. The first arrives tomorrow (July 16), when the 27-year-old rapper hosts The ESPYs on ESPN. Then his record label OVO Sound, distributed by Warner Bros., will release its first two projects – Majid Jordan’s EP “Place Like This” and PARTYNEXTDOOR’s second full-length release, “PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO” on July 29. PARTYNEXTDOOR premiered a new song with Drake, “Recognize,” earlier this week as one of two songs available on the album’s pre-order.
Up next is OVOFest, Drake and October’s Very Own’s fifth annual hip-hop festival in Toronto, which returns to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on Aug. 3 and 4 with headlining sets from Outkast and Drake himself. Over 35,000 tickets to this year’s festival sold out in record time, with a long list of surprise guests expected to appear as they have in years past — Kanye West, Lil Wayne, TLC and J. Cole are among the bold-faced names who showed up last year.
Side note: Majid Jordan’s project actually drops on July 22nd.
It was just announced that OVO artist PARTYNEXTDOOR will be releasing his new project, PARTYNEXTDOOR 2, on July 29th. PND also decides to unleash a new track off of the tape featuring Drake! Check out “Recognize” below and the artwork for the new project above.
In an interview with Vlad TV Common spoke on the Drake beef that occurred back in 2012, the reason being according to Common was over his ex Serena Williams. At least Common kept it real, props.
Here’s Houston Appreciation Weekend via Kirko Bangz!
Five years ago, October’s Very Own, Aubrey Drake Graham made his debut in Houston.
All those years ago, Drizzy sold out one of Houston’s premiere venues, Warehouse Live, and thus a star was born. His connection to Houston runs deep: Jas Prince, son of Rap-A-Lot founder, J. Prince, brought Drake’s music to the elder Prince. Trusting his son’s judgement, J brought Drake to Houston to meet with Lil Wayne on November 18th, and the rest is history.
In 2014, Drake has been given his own holiday in the city of Houston, and gave back to the city by announcing the annual Houston Appreciation Weekend, featuring intimiate performances, a celebrity basketball game, and cameos from an all-star cast of Houston’s hip-hop culture.
