Drake Inks $10 Million Deal for Las Vegas Residency

Drake is set to rake in a couple millions for his Las Vegas residency.

The Blast reports that Champagne Papi inked a $10 million deal for a residency at the XS Nightclub inside the Wynn Las Vegas. He previously hinted at a residency the last time he performed at the nightclub.

“Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some (stuff),” Drake said during his 30-minute set at the Wynn last Thursday (Jan. 10). “But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me.”

The news of Drake’s residency comes after the launch of his luxury champagne, Mod Sélection, in partnership with California-based entrepreneur, Brent Hocking. Two years ago, Champagne Papi launched his Virginia Black Whiskey.

Although he hasn’t officially announced the residency hisself, the “In My Feelings” rapper posted a picture of his recent performance at the venue with a caption that reads, “New home.”

RCA Records is Reportedly Holding R. Kelly’s New Music

Following the release of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, many people have been trying to show their support for the victims by siding with them as opposed to taking R. Kelly’s side.

Chance The Rapper, Nick Cannon, Ne-Yo, and Tank are among the many people who vowed to stop supporting the disgraced singer. Chance and Nick even apologized for collaborating with the Pied Piper. However, RCA Records have been under fire for enabling Kells for years and it looks like they’re finally about to do something about it.

TMZ reports that RCA/Sony will not be financially supporting any of R. Kelly’s upcoming projects until the criminal investigation against him in Georgia is resolved. The “I Admit” singer has to complete two more albums under his deal but the label isn’t putting any money behind his music or videos.

The label could possibly be sued if they drop R. Kelly without any criminal charges to justify breaching the contract. On the other hand, they will be caught up in a public relations whirlwind if they release any of his music while the #MuteRKelly movement continues to grow.

R. Kelly’s Streams Increased by 16 Percent Since Docuseries Premiere

R. Kelly is caught up in controversy ever since the premiere of part 1 of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries that highlights sexual abuse allegations against him. But that hasn’t stopped people from listening to his music.

The Blast confirms that the singer’s Spotify streams surged by 16 percent since the series aired on Thursday, January 3rd.

This may be ironic because last year the streaming service temporarily pulled his music from their promoted playlists as apart of their hateful content policy. That wasn’t effective and the Pied Piper’s music actually increased before Spotify decided to backtrack.

Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea Kelly, as well as Jerhonda Pace, Kitti Jones, Asante McGee, Lisa Van Allen, singer Sparkle and many more all appear in the six part documentary. Kelly’s legal team fired back threatening to sue Lifetime claiming the special was “packed with lies.”

Drake Teases Collaboration With Chris Brown

2018 was an eventful year for Drake. He got into a messy beef with Pusha T and Kanye West, but he did squash beef with both Chris Brown and Meek Mill.

The pair brought in the New Year together at Drizzy’s star-studded New Years Eve party. Drake wrote on his Instagram, “2019 cook up…Aubreezy.” This presumably means that they’re cooking up new music for the year.

They’ve been beefing for years, but its been reassured by the multiple public appearances together that things are all good between them.

Aside from spending the holiday together, Drake brought out CB during the Los Angeles stop of his Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour.

Ironically, sources allege that Chris and Rihanna are on good terms. In a recent interview, Riri revealed that her and Drizzy were no longer friends.

Aaliyah’s Mother Diane Haughton Fires Back at Backup Singer Who Reportedly Witnessed R. Kelly Having Sex With His Former Protegeé

Once again, Lifetime is at the forefront of a controversy having to do with late R&B singer Aaliyah. Thankfully, this time it isn’t another attempt at a horrid biopic. Unfortunately, it does have to do with a horrid allegation made forth by a former backup singer for R. Kelly, the subject of the network’s three-part Surviving R. Kelly documentary scheduled to start airing tomorrow.

After Jovante Cunningham, the former employee of Kellz at hand, made the shocking claim to have witnessed seeing R. Kelly and Aaliyah doing “things that an adult should not be doing with a child” while on a tour bus in 1994, Baby Girl’s notoriously silent mom Diane Haughton released an official statement denying the claims and calling Cunningham “a liar.” According to Yahoo! News, Mrs. Haughton is stating that Cunningham is lying about “seeing, meeting or even breathing the same air as [Aaliyah],” continuing on by stating “My husband and I were always on tour with her and at interviews and every place she went throughout her entire career. Whoever this woman is, I have never seen her before anywhere on planet earth, until now.”

See the full statement below, which as of now has only been confirmed by fans of the late singer that died in 2001, but we can only hope that none of this tarnishes the legacy of a beloved music icon any further:

See Who Made The Cut On Uncle Murda’s “Rap Up 2018”

For the past four years Brooklyn native and G-Unit signee Uncle Murda has brought the heat for the year’s end wrap up, including all of the beefs, statements and overall unforgettable moments for the past 365 days. Even with a little rap-up competition from VA ghostwriter Mad Skillz, Murda’s rendition always tips the scales in terms of content.

Leaving no one out, from Kanye to Young Buck to Cardi B, Murda’s Rap-Up is an entertaining way to remember what went down in 2018.

J. Cole’s ‘KOD’ Goes Platinum Without Features

J. Cole earned his third full-length project to go platinum with no features.

Chart data confirmed that KOD achieved the accolade eight months after its release, and seven months after it went gold.

The critically-acclaimed collection touched on drug addiction, politics, love, and money. It broke Apple and Spotify’s first day streaming numbers, and appeared on numerous year-end lists. It’s no wonder that people are appalled that KOD didn’t receive any nods for the Grammys.

Some people suspect that J. Cole didn’t even submit the album, while others believe that it’s just too deep for this over saturated market.

Although he didn’t get any nominations for his personal project, he has the chance to take home the Grammy for “Come Through and Chill” with Miguel (Best R&B Song) and “Pretty Little Fears” with 6lack (Best Rap/Sung Performance.)

Cardi B Wows With Her Lavishly Luxe “Money” Music Video

After already making it to the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, despite being leaked just a few days prior of its official release, Cardi B’s new single “Money” now has a music video that’s a visual treat from beginning to end. And yes, our girl Belcalis is baring all!



The video, directed by Jora Frantzis, for the latest single that will appear on the upcoming deluxe edition of her chart-topping debut album Invasion of Privacy proves that Cardi is truly a queen in every sense of the word, from the opulent gold-laced wardrobe design to the overall tribute to her unashamed days as a New York City-based stripper. As of now, “Money” is sitting comfortably at No. 29 on the charts, but we’re sure it’ll rise now that we have this eye-grabbing music video to gaze at and stream to the top of the charts. We even think Kulture makes her directorial debut in a few scenes as well!

Watch the music video for Cardi B’s “Money” music video above, and expect the Invasion of Privacy deluxe edition to drop on January 25.

Bobby Brown Says he’s Still King of R&B: ‘They Want the Title, They Have to Battle Me’

Bobby Brown confidently proclaimed the title of King of R&B when TMZ approached him with the question.

As he was leaving the Beverly Hills restaurant Vio Allora, the New Edition vet said, “They want the title, they have to battle me,” he says. “That’s If you want the title, you have to battle me. I didn’t really want to talk about it, but I’ve been seeing it on Instagram and social media and to me, it’s like, you want the title, battle me. Live on stage. Me vs. anybody. It doesn’t matter who it is.”

In fact, Bobby Brown went on to shade Jacquees and said Usher is the only one eligible to battle him. “Chris Brown’s a bad boy. Usher’s a bad boy. If anyone deserves the title, it would be one of them,” he says. “Still got R. Kelly, you know? I turned 50 so, you know, I need to relinquish the title anyway [laughs]. I’d give it up to Usher. That’s like my son. He’s that good that I think he should battle like Chris Brown. He’s [Jacquees] not even recognizable. I don’t even know his music.”

Jacquees ignited the King of R&B debate when he hopped on social media and said that he was the King of R&B of this generation. Several celebrities weighed in on the debate including Diddy, Tank, Keith Sweat, Dave Chapelle, and more.

DJ Khaled Returns to Jamaica for the First Time in 12 Years to Work With Buju Banton

DJ Khaled is working on his forthcoming album, Father of Asahd, and flew to Jamaica to add a few touches to the project, with the help of Buju Banton who was just released from prison.

Khaled hasn’t visited the island in 12 years due to his fear of flying. But following the birth of his son, Asahd Khaled, he began taking flights two years ago.

As soon as he touched down he linked up with Buju who admitted that it was his first time back in a studio since he came home after serving an eight-year bid on drug-related charges.

If you follow DJ Khaled, then you will know that he used to live in Jamaica and frequently promotes the culture. His relationship with the reggae icon began in the 1990s during his disc jockey days.
