In honor of Father’s Day, Champagne Papi shared a special gift he received from his son Adonis. Taking to Instagram, Drizzy posted a photo of the artwork that says “Papa” in a stencil cutout with splotches of paint around it.
Adonis, who turns two in October, is turning out to be quite the artist. Drake previously shared artwork he received from his son for Christmas. “Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me,” he wrote at the time.
The artistic gene runs in the family. Adonis’ mother, Sophie Brussaux, is a talented painter and shares her art regularly on Instagram.
Drake opened up about becoming a father and meeting his son for the first time on his Scorpion album. “I only met you one time, introduced you to St. Nick,” he raps on “March 14.” “I think he must have brought you like 20 gifts.”
During his appearance on HBO’s “The Shop,” he also gushed about Adonis. “I have a son, he’s a beautiful boy,” he told LeBron James. “Crazy blue eyes, baby blue eyes.”
Drake is still celebrating the Raptors NBA championship. In honor of the Toronto team’s first-ever win, he dropped his “Best in the World Pack” featuring two new tracks–“Omertà” and “Money in the Grave” featuring Rick Ross.
It’s been two-and-a-half months since Nipsey was shot and killed outside of his Marathon Clothing store in L.A. London and Hussle began dating in 2013 after meeting on social media. They have a two-and-a-half-year-old son named Kross together. Nipsey also has a daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.
Following his death in March, the 34-year-old actress opened up about losing her best friend and devoted dad. “I am completely lost,” wrote a heartbroken London. “I’ve lost my best friend.”
But his legacy lives on. Nipsey will be honored with the Humanitarian Award at the 2019 BET Awards on June 23. DJ Khaled, YG, and John Legend will also perform a tribute to the beloved MC, who is nominated for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist.
OVO Sound bossDrake might have did way more than just drop a couple fire new records. Social media is currently buzzing over the 6 God allegedly firing big shots at G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T on his “Omertà” record.
On the record, Drizzy appears to hint at his now-infamous 2018 rap battle with Pusha and possibly coming up short in the digital feud.
“Last year, n*ggas really feel like they rode on me/Last year, n*ggas got hot ‘cause they told on me/I’m ’bout to call the bluff of anybody that fold on me/I’m buyin’ the buildin’ of every door that closed on me … The things that we’ve done to protect the name are unsettling/But no regrets, though, the name’ll echo/Years later, none greater/Death to a coward and a traitor, that’s just in my nature, yeah” (“Omertà”)
The song is produced by Deats, OZ, and E.Y. “Omertà” is defined as “secrecy sworn to by oath,” and is a term often connected to the Italian mafia. The track consists of one lengthy verse, during which Drake vents about people using his name to boost their own profiles, a possible reference to Pusha. (Genius)
“It was always going to be, always going to happen. I was always going to get off. “Infrared” had to happen. We were doing the back-and-forth. He had “Two birds, one stone.” This is what rap is. He is… it is a machine in dealing with him. So we deal. But I had to do things at my own time. You can’t just jump out there. We’ve seen how that works when you just treat it like a street battle. It’s really not. You have to play chess. … Yes. It had to happen on my time. Not anybody else’s.” (Variety)
“I was in it for the long haul … for hip-hop. I thought this was going to be a running thing, back-and-forth. I was sure he’d have a rebuttal. I did what I wanted to do. I only deal in truth, how I see things. When you’re dealing with words, it’s a way of dealing with truth and how the pubic process that, how they interpret that. And what touches them and what touches the person you’re going against. I actually thought we were going to keep on.” (Variety)
It’s been a big week for Cassie. After announcing her pregnancy, the singer is getting back to the music.
On Friday, she teased a new track called “Moments.” On the 1:45 snippet, Cassie brings the seductive vibes. “Let go and say that you want me / I can read your signals / Body language triggers / Let go and take me on your trip,” she sings.
Cassie is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with boyfriend Alex Fine. The couple announced the exciting news on social media this week and received well wishes from Cassie’s ex Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Last night, Drake celebrated the Toronto Raptors first-ever NBA championship by dropping his “Best in the World Pack” featuring two new tracks, “Omertà” and “Money in the Grave” featuring Rick Ross.
One song in particular, “Omertà,” has some fans convinced that Drake is taking aim at his rival Pusha-T with his thinly-veiled lyrics. “Last year ni**as really feel like they rode on me,” he raps. “Last year, ni**as got hot ’cause they told on me / I’m about to call the bluff of anybody that fold on me.”
The line is seemingly a reference to Pusha’s scathing diss “The Story of Adidon,” on which the G.O.O.D. Music president revealed for the first time that Drake fathered a secret son. “You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat motherfu**er playing border patrol,” rapped Push on the track, which was released one year ago. “Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an adidas press run.”
Drake did not respond to Pusha’s diss, but would later confirm that he fathered a son on “March 14” off his album Scorpion.
Their beef seemed to settle down, but in January, Pusha posted a cryptic tweet that made it seem like the feud was not over. “You tried, you failed…I’m hearing you wanna try again, this time I’m not gonna play with you, any of you,” he tweeted.
After “Omertà” was released, fans took to social media to weigh in on the lyrics. See some of the reactions below.
Judging from Drake’s verse on Omertà, his beef with Pusha T is not over. It’s finally gonna be a surgical summer.
