An Instagram post meme that Rihanna posted about her exes has everyone buzzing in the comments about who the Barbados beauty was discussing in the meme, and questioning whether Drake is referenced in the post. On October 8 RiRi posted on Instagram “None of my exs are married or in happy relationships, so it’s safe to say that I wasn’t da problem.” The post is vague, and it has a hashtag trophy emoji as the caption. Could Rihanna be dissing Chris Brown? Is she talking about Drizzy? It is impossible to tell from the Instagram post which ex Rihanna is talking about. Fans who hope to see the Toronto rapper and the Umbrella singer together as a couple have been posting mixed comments on the post ever since it became public.
During the Summer Sixteen tour concert in Toronto Friday Drake had some choice words for the crowd, as well as the usual excitement and plenty of fantastic Drizzy tunes. Some of the tour shows had to be postponed because of an injured ankle but the Toronto rapper was back in his stride when he hit the stage in the 6. Drake’s tour is winding down but it was clear that the energy from the crowd was feeding the rapper so he gave a shout out at his competition from the stage. “Other rappers, I don’t give a fuck about none of these other singers. Nobody can talk to me ’cause I’m from the 6. I go over there by myself, and I do it every single motherfucking time, boy.”
Drizzy is not the first rapper to speak out to their competition from a public forum without actually naming names, but over the last few years there have been a number of feuds between the 6 God and other rappers and artists. Joe Budden, Meek Mill, and Tory Lanez are just a few of the fellow artists that have had a feud with Drizzy, so his shout out could have been aimed at any of them or even all of them collectively.
A number of well known artists and popular songs were nominated for the Best Hip Hop video at the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards but Drake took the day, and the award. “I Got the Keys” from DJ Khaled’s with Future and Jay Z, “Panda” by Desiigner, “Famous” by Kanye West with Rihanna, “Watch Out” by 2 Chainz, and “All the Way by Up” Fat Joe & Remy Ma with Infrared and French Montana were all nominated but “Hotline Bling” by Drake. Snoop Dog received the I am Hip Hop Icon Award, and there were cyphers presented by BET during the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards. As the awards ceremony went on the cyphers slowly revealed the names of artists such as Young M.A., Lil Wayne, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Dave West as well as a number of others.
Alexis Gomez gave her daughter exactly what the 6 year old wanted, a Drake inspired birthday party, and the story went viral. Eventually Drizzy caught wind of the event and gave the little girl an extra special surprise, a message and the promise of a special gift from the Toronto rapper himself. Drake responded to the news with the message “OVO 12’s for her ASAP.” The OVO 12s are the Air Jordan shoes that ChampagnePapi designed himself and this makes the gift extra special. Fans were quick to comment, and some admitted being jealous of the attention that the child received from Drake.
The party followed the Drake theme right down to an OVO owl cake, money on the tables, Worst Behavior posters, and even a gold chain that the birthday girl was wearing. Gomez has to be one of the coolest moms in the world and the attention that her daughter has received is enormous. So far there has been no word on exactly when the shoes will arrive but few doubt that Drake will follow through on his promise to the little girl.
Lil Wayne is set to release a handwritten memoir from his time in Rikers Island when the rapper was serving a sentence for gun charges, titled Gone ‘Til November, and in it Dwayne Carter Jr. offers plenty of drama and gossip. Wayne also discusses finding out while behind bars that his girl slept with Drake, although the encounter happened before she hooked up with Lil Wayne. Despite the timeline Carter was still royally pissed at the news and explained that she did not tell him about the Drizzy escapade even though it was in her past.
In the journal entry with the title Bad Day Lil Tunechi wrote “No writing, prayer, Bible, sleep. Another one.”. Another entry called As a Man around the same time explained that “ I woke up still feeling f–ked up about the f–ked-up day that I had. Hell is what it was! I’m used to arguing with my girl on a daily basis…but finding out that she f–ked Drake was the absolute worst thing I could’ve found out.” Weezy continued with “As a man, honestly, that s–t hurt…and not because it was Drake. It could’ve been any man and it would’ve hurt the same. She said it happened way before we got together, but she just never told me. When Drizzy came to see me, he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s true…Don’t f–k with her like that ’cause I did f–k her.’ Damn! At that point, it didn’t matter to me when it f–king happened…because the f–king happened!” Lil Wayne made peace with the news though, shown in the entry “As a man I’ll admit that s–t really f–ked me up, but hey, f–k that ho! Love is blind, that’s why I say make sure that bitch is a seeing-eye dog.”
Drake’s latest album Views has reached new heights, becoming the very first album on Apple Music to reach 1 billion streams.
This is a very impressive feat and it is memorialized by photos showing the celebratory plaque that Apple gave the Toronto rapper and a photo that shows Drizzy posing with Apple executives. A 23 minute feature film that Drake created called Please Forgive Me which accompanies Views on Apple Music. The world is looking up for ChampagnePapi and everything that the Canadian artist touches seems to turn to gold. Congrats to Drake for this enormous achievement.
Drake Please Don’t Forgive Me Short Film Movie
Drake has a new short film that will be premiered on September 30 called Please Forgive Me, and a recently released poster for the film from Apple Music shows the Toronto rapper looking abused and beat up. There is blood trickling down the artist’s face. The poster is further confirmation that the new Drake film was inspired by the popular album Views. Anthony Mandler was the director for the film, and Noah 40 Shebib produced the movie and produced music for the soundtrack as well.
The popular single “For Free”, a collaboration between Drizzy and DJ Khaled, has been certified by the RIAA with a platinum rating. The track can be found on Khaled’s latest album Major Key, and it has kept the Billboard Hot 100 charts popping all summer long. This is not the first platinum hit that DJ has had either. Some of his other tracks which have reached this level include :I Wish You Would”, :I’m So Hood”, “We Takin Over,”, “I’m On One,” and “All I Do Is Win”.
Major Key has been an incredibly successful album and it also has the track “I Got the Keys” which features Future and Jay Z. DJ Khaled recently released his video for the song “Nas Album Done”, and the video was shot in the Bahamas and features Nas. Khaled was also recently named as the host for the current BET Hip Hop Awards and it is no secret that he will be burning hot for the rest of 2016.
