Watch Drake Join Future On “Honest” At Pittsburgh Would You Like A Tour? Opener

Just a few days ago we heard all about how Drake was going to fire Future from his tour because of something said in an interview. It was resolved just a couple of days later though. Drake's Would You Like A Tour? kicked off last night in Pittsburgh with the Atlanta rapper and Miguel… More »

Watch Drake’s Q Radio Interview (Canada’s Answer To Kanye On Zane Lowe?)

A few weeks go, Kanye West kicked off a media shitstorm by making some classically Kanye statements in an hour-long interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. And maybe it's just a coincidence, but now Drake, Kanye's peer in transformative rap domination, has sat down for an hour-long interview with a shaggy-haired radio host… More »

Angel Haze – “Worst Behavior” Freestyle

Motherfuckers, as I understand it, never loved Angel Haze. Earlier this week, the rapper kicked off her 30 Gold freestyle series -- 30 verses over other people's songs in 30 days -- by rapping over Kanye West's "Black Skinhead," and she's since torn apart Jay Z's "Tom Ford." Today, she jumps on "Worst… More »

Drake (Feat. Rick Ross) – “Hold On, We’re Going Home (MMG Remix)”

"Hold On, We're Going Home," the endlessly pillowy, Majid Jordan-assisted New Wave jam that carried Drake to Top 40 success, yielded one awesomely ridiculous music video and placed highly on our absurdly large Drake songs countdown, now has a Maybach Music Group remix featuring a verse from Rick Ross in pole position.

Ezra Koenig Reviews Drake’s Nothing Was The Same

The Talkhouse is a newish website that invites musicians to write about music. (They were the party responsible when Lou Reed reviewed Yeezus.) And I'm just going out on a limb here, but I'm guessing it'll be a while before the Talkhouse again contracts the services of one Ezra Koenig. The Vampire Weekend frontma… More »

Kendrick Lamar Disses Drake In BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher

BET will air their annual Hip-Hop Awards (filmed last weekend in Atlanta) on Tuesday, 10/15. For the uninitiated, the ceremony is punctuated with interstitial rap cyphers, sometimes as head-scratching as Wyclef Jean, Lil' Mama, and Dizzee Rascal to totally jaw-dropping, Eminem and his Shady Records roster. This year, Black Hippy has contributed one and part… More »

Drake's Nothing Was The Same was released last week -- maybe you heard? -- and now the Canadian actor-turned-rapper is on to other business.

Drake-ing Bad: The Aubrey Graham/Walter White Connection

As far as I know, Drake has never murdered anyone (although, "you never know"). And contrary to that outdated yet stubbornly resilient rapper stereotype, he's never been involved with selling drugs. But as I was undertaking the absurd and Herculean task of ranking the rapper's 100 best songs earlier this week, I kept noticing… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It's not on this week's list, but this might be a good place to acknowledge director Hannah Lux Davis's video for the willfully ridiculous Mike Will Made It/Miley Cyrus/Wiz Khalifa/Juicy J single "23." Michael Jordan is the most iconic and universally beloved athlete in my living memory, and here we have a video that… More »

The Drakeography: The 100 Best Drake Songs

Immersing yourself in Drake's catalog is more than a little like jumping into bed with the guy for one of those torrid affairs he likes to emote about in the endless tear-stained diary that is his discography. His charms are hard to resist -- a man of many talents, a man for all seasons, a… More »

Drake – “Hold On, We’re Going Home” Video

"Hold On, We're Going Home," the big hit from Drake's new album Nothing Was The Same, is a soft, sensitive new-wave love-ballad. So naturally, the video should culminate in a massive shipping-yard gun battle and a CGI explosion, right? Well, that's what director (and Matrix cinematographer) Bill Pope has done with this grand,… More »

Watch Drake Return To Chelsea Lately

Nothing Was The Same is officially out today, and last night, Drake made a return appearance on Chelsea Lately. He sauntered on stage in a much-coveted "Nothing Was The Same" sweatshirt, sort-of manhandled Chelsea Handler in a bear hug (she didn't seem to mind that much), and "set the mood" by lighting… More »

Drake Opens Free One-Day Pop Up Shop Today

Drake's very good new album Nothing Was The Same is out next week, and he's celebrating its impending arrival by giving away free shit to people who will then advertise the album on their persons. It's generosity, and it's also a canny marketing strategy, which means it's a very Drake thing to do. At… More »

Premature Evaluation: Drake Nothing Was The Same

Drake changed rap. He reshaped the landscape and forever altered the things that we expect from big rap stars. Before Drake, sensitive souls like Andre 3000 and Kanye West made a point of showing what rap stardom could look like if you dropped all the tough-guy stuff, but none of them came across quite so… More »

Wu-Tang Are Remixing Drake’s “Wu-Tang Forever”

Drake's third album Nothing Was The Same is out soon, 9/24 via Young Money. Just a couple of days ago, he released one of the album's tracks, "Wu-Tang Forever," sampling Wu-Tang Clan's "It's Yourz." In general, Wu-Tang fans seemed pretty upset about Drake's song, but Wu-Tang themselves were mostly supportive. (Mostly.)… More »
