Drake is making good on his promise to be a great co-parent. The 6 God’s baby mama, Sophie Brussaux, got the VIP treatment at the Paris stop of his Assassination Vacation tour.

The Internets spotted Brussaux getting her dance on during the show at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. With drinks in hand, she was seen shaking the goods, per TMZ. By now it’s known Drizzy has a type, and she fits the bill.

Brussaux and Drake have a son, Adonis, who happened to be born on the same days as his dad. The discovery that the “God’s Plan” rapper didn’t exactly go to his plan thanks to Pusha T, but it is what it is. We still haven’t see a proper pic of the kid, but it seems that the Boy has him tatted on his arm.

Peep footage of Brussaux below.

Michael Rapaport Advices Jordyn Woods to ‘Bury Them All’

We are currently in week 2 of the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal. While many have criticized Jordyn for “betrayal” as an extended member of the Kardashian family, some have taken her side. One of those people is Michael Rapaport. Rapaport took to social media to give Woods some advice.

“Bring ’em all down with you. Bury ’em all,” he said in his video. “Take ’em all f***in’ down with you because every single one of these people is trying to exploit you. Get your own show, get your own clothing line, start your own make-up line — I don’t know you’re into — f***ing’ toothbrushes, batteries, whatever the f**k you’re into, get it all. Get your own Red Table. Shut all of them of them down.”

“Whatever you did or didn’t do is not worth the kind of ridicule you’re getting so my advice to you is bury each and everyone one of them, one by one.”

Although is not direct to whom Woods should “bury”, it’s obvious that Rapaport is not a fan of the Kardashians.

We have heard everyone’s side of the story except Thompson’s. Woods sat down with Jada Pinkett-Smith on Red Table Talk aired on Friday, in where she confessed to only kissing Thompson. She also states that she had never been there, to begin with, and denies all allegations of sexual encounters with Thompson. Khloe initially called Woods a liar but has now included her baby daddy in the blame game of her family’s breakup.

With an alleged new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in the works, the Woods and Kardashian scandal will do wonders for ratings of all platforms involved, including Red Table Talk.

Kodak Black Sings Fantasia’s ‘When I See You’ On Instagram Live Video

Who would have thought that Kodak Black enjoys R&B classics? The Florida native took to his Instagram Live to pay tribute to America Idol break-out star, Fantasia.

The “Zeze” rapper often times uses his IG Live to says what’s on his mind or simply just have fun with his fans. Yesterday was no different. He hopped on The Gram to show off his singing skills, in the studio while kicking it with a group of his friends. Kodak is one of the best in the game when it comes down to putting together melodic raps, so many expected him to bust a new track from an upcoming project. However, the 21-year-old rapper opted not to do a melodic version of one of his own songs, but to perform a live rendition of Fantasia’s “When I See U.”

Somehow the IG Live went viral and Fantasia got word. Fantasia was so ecstatic after catching wind of the video and decided to repost it.

“@kodakblack stay singing this song and I Love it,”  she stated in her caption.

Since Kodak’s release from prison in April, he has been on a new path to success. He released his second album, Dying To Live last December. Dying To Live features Travis Scott, Offset, Juice Wrld and Lil Pump. The album’s lead single, “Zeze” peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Kodak’s move to California is another testament to his success.

Moving out west removed him from an unhealthy environment, that surrounded him with the criminal activity that landed him in jail.  No matter where Kodak lands, it is good to know that his appreciation for good music last. Check out the original track from Fantasia.

Casanova Collabs With Davido Showing Brooklyn and Nigeria Has the Same Hoods

Casanova is starting out 2019 hot by giving the streets the music that they want to hear.

On Casanova’s latest single “2 AM,” the Brooklyn rapper does just that, as he follows the lead of Tory Lanez and Davido for his first venture into a thriving Afrobeats genre.

Casanova isn’t a stranger to Afrobeats considering he is from Flatbush, Brooklyn and both his parents are Caribbean. Reggae and Caribbean sounds are in his DNA, so transitioning to Afrobeats would only make sense. Flatbush, Brooklyn is a cultural melting pot where foreign musical taste runs fluently throughout those Brooklyn streets. Going to Nigeria to film the video to really showcase the sound was the best call for all parties involved.

“2 AM” was produced by 30 Roc (Travis Scott, Cardi B, Rae Sremmurd) and the track’s sultry Afrobeat rhythm inspired Casanova to shoot scenes for the video alongside Davido in Lagos, in addition to filming with Tory in Atlanta. “Going to Africa really opened my eyes,” says Casanova of his maiden voyage to the motherland. “We went into one of the toughest hoods in Nigeria and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen. People were screaming for us. There were hyenas running wild.

Filming the video for “2 am”, was Casanova’s first trip to Africa. Anticipation for the release of “2 AM” recently exploded beyond Casanova’s core fans after he posted a behind the scenes clip from the video shoot in Lagos that quickly went viral on Instagram.

From his Instagram post, clearly, Casanova feels comfortable roaming around Nigeria. After all, Brooklyn has similar hoods as well, minus the animals. The party scenes showcase a very similar dancehall culture that has been seen in Brooklyn for many decades now.  Togetherness through tough times via music and good vibes isn’t just the Brooklyn way.

Free At Last, is the follow up to Casanova’s critically acclaimed 2018 debut EP, Commissary, which featured guest appearances from Chris BrownFabolousA Boogie wit da Hoodie and G-Eazy, and established him as one of hip-hop’s hottest rising stars. Now that the ex-hustler is off parole, he’s ready to see the world and let his artistry fly first class with the release of Free At Last. “They not gonna box me in,” he says. “I’m not trying to be the tough guy anymore. I ain’t trying to be no hero. All heroes die and you can’t just fight anymore. All I want to do is feed my family.”

Sting Allegedly Threatening Lawsuit Over Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams”

2018 Power105.1 Powerhouse NYC

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

Juice WRLD has a smash hit with his song “Lucid Dreams” which borrows musical elements from rocker Sting’s 1993 track “Shape Of My Heart.” It appears that Sting allegedly threatened legal action over the song despite giving his earlier blessings, but Juice WLRD isn’t too stressed.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, the track’s producer, Nick Mira, fired off some missives towards Sting, including a not-so-polite “F*ck You” stance.

“F*ck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team,” Mira tweeted over the weekend. “After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %. Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.”

Juice WRLD responded via Twitter with, “Lost millions made millions…the song impacted to many ppl in a good way for me to be upset over it. There’s always more money to be made and I will make it so.”

Check out the song in question, “Lucid Dreams” from Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance project below.

Video: Wiz Khalifa – ‘Holyfield’

Real deal. Wiz Khalifa delivers a one-two punch with the video for “Holyfield” off his latest album Rolling Papers 2.

In the lo-fi clip, a shirtless Wiz shows off his tatted and toned physique while on his “Dazed & Blazed Summer 2018 Amphitheater Tour.” He boxes, meets (and smokes) with fans backstage, and chills with his tourmates Rae Sremmurd. Teyana Taylor and Chevy Woods also make cameos.

“Real deal, Holyfield / All my ni**as real,” raps the Taylor Gang boss. “Actin’ brand new / Why the fuck you here?”

Wiz is now readying his first R&B album. During an interview with Power 106’s “The Cruz Show,” he revealed that he’s already 20 songs into the project, which will consist of “all singing.”

Exclusive: Justine Skye Opens Up About Domestic Abuse

Justine Skye is using her voice to raise awareness about domestic violence.

In the video for her new single “Build” featuring Arin Ray, which was released in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the 23-year-old singer documents a violent relationship, which was inspired by real life. In a candid interview with Rap-Up, she opens up about her own experience with domestic abuse.

“Towards the end of the relationship, I was just in a bad mental place and he was just watching me crumble and it was so confusing,” she reveals. “I didn’t know what to do. I literally just wanted to give up on everything. I knew I couldn’t though. Something was telling me, just keep going. This song is going to be more powerful than you could ever imagine.”

While Justine has not shared her ex’s name publicly, she says that the six-month relationship was “very recent” and “very private.” “It got really intense very fast,” she adds. “In the beginning, you think he really cares about me, he loves me, he doesn’t want any guys talking to me. And then it becomes, ‘Oh, you liked this person’s picture.’ It was ridiculous and I was like, ‘He’s trippin’.’ And then it started to get physical.”

Justine admits that she never thought she would be in a situation like this. “I was one of those girls that thought like, ‘There’s no reason a guy would ever put their hands on me.’ … That’s what you think until it’s happening to you. You don’t want to believe that it’s true.”

By sharing her story, she hopes to help other women struggling with domestic abuse. “I’m not trying to seek revenge,” she says. “This is about making sure that women protect themselves and are more conscious of the signs and understand that they deserve way, way more.”

Through her music, she has been able to heal. She is now in the studio finishing a new project, her first since her January debut Ultraviolet. “I’m really excited about this direction that I’m going,” she says. “I feel like I’m actually truly coming in to my artistry. I learned a lot about myself through this experience and I’m 23 now, and I’m feeling more of an adult.”

Australian Hip-Hop Icon Pegz Releases New Album ‘Equilibrium’ with Silent Titan

Melbourne’s Pegz has released a long-awaited new 9-track album with producer Silent Titan titled Equilibrium last week. The impressive 38-minute offering released on Brisbane’s legendary Hydrofunk Records (Resin Dogs, Blunted Stylus) features Jace XL, DJ Cost was long in the making and a somewhat unexpected release when it finally dropped. Silent Titan is a well-established, talented producer / DJ from Australia having worked with Thundamentals, Prince Po of Organized Konfusion while Pegz is one of the most important figures in hip-hop to emerge from Australia yet.

Coming up as a young graffiti artist before beginning to rap in the early 90’s, Pegz then known as Pegasus had an early track featured on a release from the hugely influential Melbourne hip-hop label Nuffsaid Recordings. Upon starting to work at a then-emerging hip hop shop/record label called “Obese Records”, Pegz released his debut self-titled EP Pegasus in 2001 that really kick-started a prolific next decade that had not been seen before on such a scale.

Before Pegz released his classic debut album Capricorn Cat back in 2003, he had purchased the Obese Records shop he was working at and had continued to significantly develop the release side of the emerging business. With landmark, early releases from the likes of Brad Strut (Lyrical Commission / Unkut Recordings), Hilltop Hoods, Reason, Funkoars, Bias B, Hunter & Dazastah as well as the Culture of Kings compilation releases, Obese Records had positioned itself nationally as having a significant market reach at the time. Local Australian-made hip-hop at the time was just beginning to find a larger market audience and commercial acceptance off the back of Resin Dogs, Downsyde and 1200 Techniques influential local releases / festival appearances, and the Obese Records releases of Culture of Kings Volume 2 compilation and especially Hilltop HoodsThe Calling smashed through the glass ceiling that appeared to exist then.

With Obese Records now on fire throughout the mid-2000’s with a string of quality releases, Pegz released his own acclaimed albums in “Axis” (2005) and “Burn City” (2007) to great success. The 14-track Axis features Hilltop Hoods, Hyjak N Torcha, Oregon’s Debaser, was largely produced by Plutonic Lab and certainly cemented Pegz in the scene as a talented emcee. His latter Burn City released in late-2007 featured Vents, Drapht, The Funkoars, Illy, Muph and Cali’s Planet Asia and proved to be commercially more successful peaking at #70 on the ARIA Album Chart, #10 on the ARIA Urban Album Chart and #4 on the ARIA Hitseekers Albums chart as the audience widened.

Following Burn City, Pegz developed a trio group called “Gully Platoon” with Joe New and Dialectrix (both formerly of Down Under Beats Crew). They dropped a 14-track album in mid-2009 on Obese Records called “The Great Divide” featuring DJ 2 Buck, Plutonic Lab, future members of the current award-winning group Remi and reached #5 on the local independent Top 20 Album charts and #18 on the ARIA Top 40 Urban Album charts. This period continued a string of successful and critically acclaimed releases on his Obese Records including Drapht “Brothers Grimm” (2008), Muph & Plutonic “…And Then Tomorrow Came” (2008), M-Phazes “Good Gracious” (2010), Mantra “Power Of The Spoken (2010) and Bias B “Biaslife” (2011) amongst others.

By the time Pegz’s fourth solo album perfectly titled as “Drama” dropped in 2011, Obese Records in retrospect had somewhat hit a high watermark. The leading group from Obese Records in Hilltop Hoods had left and gone independent forming Golden Era Records, the physical record pressing arm of the business had closed down and his large influence had led to some concerns of Obese monopolizing the rapidly developing local hip-hop market. “Drama” largely marked Pegz exit from hip-hop as an active rapper, leading him to focus more on the label aspect, management and distribution arms of Obese Records.

Pegz legacy as both an emcee and through Obese Records is of incredible importance to hip hop’s development and wider embracement it now enjoys throughout Australia. This recent EP drop with Silent Titan was more than a welcomed surprise and re-opens the door to continuing the Pegz story – or closes it again. Time will tell, but the messages touched on throughout Equilibrium are timely in a musical landscape that has changed so much in recent years. Stay tuned to The Source for an upcoming article on Obese Records – Australia’s most influential hip-hop record label to date.

Thanks Pegz.
