Rap newcomer Lil Nas X is spreading the love. To kick off the latest roundup of hip-hop buzz, rap personality Jonny Fastlane dishes on Mr. “Old Town Road” looking out for country collaborator Billy Ray Cyrus, Lil’ Kim making peace with Lil Cease after nearly a decade of feuding and Drake receiving a massive gift from the Toronto Raptors. Watch below!
OVO Sound bossDrake looks like he’s twinning these days. The hip-hop superstar went to Instagram Wednesday with a slideshow of pics celebrating his Toronto Raptors Game 4 Eastern Conference Finals victory including an epic Spider-Man cartoon.
Yes you read that correctly. Canada’s premier and only NBA organization hooked Drizzy up in a major way.
As reported by High SnobietyDrake received a one of one custom Toronto Raptors / OVO jacket valued over $769,000. The outside shell is resembles a sports jacket but the inside lining reveals a “City Edition” Raptors jersey. This uber pricey piece comes with an exorbitantly high price tag for a reason. For starters the fabric is sourced from a French mill with pieces used dating all the way back to 1927. Additionally the Raptors basketball and OVO owl logos are detailed in lab-grown, carbon-neutral diamonds.
The gesture is a nod to the ever popular “Drake Curse” which was ongoing part of the team’s current playoff run. If you let history tell it anytime Drizzy wore jersey the respective quad would end up losing. So much so the “In My Feelings” rapper wore the logos of four different cities during the weekend of NFL divisional championship games.
If you were hoping for a Rihanna and Drake collaboration on her upcoming album, kiss that dream goodbye.
In an interview the New York Times’ T Magazine, Riri opens up about her upcoming reggae album, R9. The interviewer asked if she had any collaborations with her ex, Drake, on this collection or any projects in the works and she shut that all the way down. “Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure,” Rihanna said.
Aside from being romantically connected, the pair have joined forces to make smash hits like “Work,” “Take Care,” and their first collab ever, “What’s My Name?”
OVO Sound bossDrake and Gucci Mane are rooting for two very different teams in the Eastern Conference Finals. Guwop went to his social media platforms to share pics/footage of himself draped in Milwaukee Bucks attire alongside the Toronto Raptors global ambassador.
With the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks locking horns in the Eastern Conference Finals for the 2019 NBA Playoffs, a radio station in Cream City has taken drastic measures. KISS-FM in Milwaukee will put a temporary hold on playing Drake songs as his team looks to even things up in the series.
And local radio is no different, as the hosts of 103.7 KISS FM proclaimed today that hip-hop star Drake has been temporarily banned from its airwaves.
Or, put otherwise, this Kiki doesn’t love you, they are not riding and they are currently leaving from beside you.
Why all the anger at Aubrey? You see, Drake isn’t just a Raptors fan. He’s not even just a Raptors superfan, merely seen sitting courtside and politely applauding at Toronto home games. No, he’s a literal member of the franchise as a “global ambassador” for the team. The team’s training center has been renamed after Drake’s OVO brand, and one of the Raptors’ uniforms even uses Drake’s signature black-and-gold color scheme, putting his imprint literally on the team. So he’s much more than just a celeb fan. He’s an embedded and very annoyingly chirpy celeb fan who sits courtside by the team as if he’s an assistant coach and gets into tiffs with the players actually playing the game.
The Bucks and Raptors square off tonight at 8:30 PM with Milwaukee hosting and owning one game to zero lead in the best of seven contest.
Last week, Drake announced his partnership with Cargojet by revealing his own Air Drake jet. Now, we get a look a closer look at the 6 God’s new drip as he takes us inside to flaunt the interior.
“Supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine,” captioned a photo of his plane, “So when an opportunity came up to get involved with Cargojet, a great Canadian company I was honored to do so.”
DJ Akademiks went on his own personal tour of the jet and had his camera out to capture its lavish interior. “Proud of my brother,” he wrote.
Drake has gained a reputation of being the harbinger of doom for sports teams, as a so-called curse has been attached to his name whenever he supports a squad. Because the petty is strong in him, Drizzy rocked a pair of Philadelphia 76ers basketball shorts as his hometown team Toronto Raptors pulled off a miracle buzzer beater by Kawhi Leonard.
The rapper has a long-standing reputation for being a bad luck charm after posing with sporting stars or their team’s shirt. Manchester City exited the Champions League after he posed with Sergio Aguero earlier this year, and AS Roma even “banned” their players from taking photos with him in order to prevent devastating losses.
Last night, Drake understandably took no chances as he watched the Toronto Raptors beat the 76ers to secure an all important spot in the Eastern Conference Finals of the NBA. Seemingly aware of his jinx status, he stayed away from the game and watched it at his Toronto home – perhaps knowing that his presence would be enough to jinx the team.
In a video posted on Twitter, Drake and his friends were seen celebrating as Kawhi Leonard sunk the winning hoop – before revealing his faith in the curse.
While wildly shouting “Yes Sir”, the rapper revealed that he’d wearing 76ers shorts throughout the game, which effectively means that the curse is still going strong.
