Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, sees it just like many others in the Hip-Hop community and has called out DJ Vlad for his alleged role in many beefs.
“BLACK ENTERTAINERS BEWARE THESE PEOPLE AT VLAD ARE CONSTANTLY TRYING TO CAUSE A BEEF BETWEEN BLACK ENTERTAINERS,” Graham wrote on Instagram. “BEWARE!!!!!!!!!”
In the photo, there was a post from Vlad with the headline “Drake laughs at Moneybagg Yo’s Government Name.” Graham could be operating as the protective father, but there are plenty of instances of people calling out Vlad. Aside from the possible instigation of beef, people also cite Vlad as an informant as he openly asks questions and publishes interviews that detail past criminal activity and ultimately leads to convictions.
Drake always has time to show love to his young fans. As the world awaits the arrival of his latest studio album, Certified Lover Boy, we continue to see Drizzy out and about. The Boy has spent a lot of time in the past month hosting Oscar after-parties and gathering with a number of friends. He even hosted a dinner with UK’s finest including SnowFall’s Damson Idris, UK rapper Giggs and more. Despite reports of The Boy allegedly breaking up an engagement between a collaborator and her fiancé, Drake seems to be living his best life.
In a recent video, he was stopped by a young fan as he was leaving a facility. The fan’s mother asked that the 4x Grammy-winner take a picture with her young daughter. She even had a vinyl copy of Drake’s 4th studio album, Views. He eagerly signed the record.
According to a report from Business Insider, a Canada-based online brokerage company that is backed by hometown rap hero Drake is reportedly valued at $4 billion.
Wealthsimple, the company that has other famous Canadian investors including Michael J. Fox and former pro-baseball player Dwight Powell, received over $600 million during its last funding season. According to the report, the app for the company will be the Canadian version of Robinhood.
“More than two million Canadians use Wealthsimple to grow their money, file their taxes, pay their friends, and make their financial lives better,” said CEO Mike Katchen. “This investment will fuel our growth so we can reach millions more and ensure that everyone has access to the simplest, most powerful financial products and services, no matter who they are or where they are in their financial lives.”
Real talk, would you trust your woman to spend time alone with Drake Diesel? Even if it was to get a record deal? We thought not, but someone did and it went exactly as you’d expect it to, allegedly.
Over the weekend the Certified Lover Boy artist was accused of being a homewreckin’ snake by a man named Jamie Sun, who said the Canadian crooner slept with his former fiancé, singer Naomi Sharon. Taking to IG to spill the tea (and picked up on Reddit), Sun described how a “world star” celeb hit up Sharon to offer her a record deal and then flied the couple out to meet them, and began recording vocals for Certified Lover Boy.
In the IG post Sun described the encounter with the “world star” before revealing that suddenly the trust was gone and he had “knifes” in his back and heart.
While he never named names, Jamie got the buzz going when he made a Drake reference in an IG post stating “I don’t drink champaign papi.”
If this is true, Drizzy ain’t sh*t for this one. Since Sun put Sharon on blast for allegedly creeping with the King of The North, the comments have been turned off on her IG page as y’all know social media users would have their own knives out for her. To be fair though, we just noticed her now because of the allegations so having the comments turned off might’ve been something she’s been doing.
Peep Naomi doing her thing below.
She’s pretty good actually. No wonder she caught Drake’s ears and eye. Y’all know he likes them thick.
Neither Noami nor Drake has responded to the allegations, but Sun seems convinced that it went down between the two. He’s since stated that he’s moved on from the 8-year relationship and “with the healing I want to be together with.”
In the end what we got from this is that if Drake wants to sign your girl to a record deal, just say no or break-up with her because it may not end well.
Drake has always remained relatively quiet throughout his career, opting to do interviews and show face only once in a blue moon. Rumors about Drake have never gotten out of hand or required the Toronto-bred rapper/singer to respond to any of them. Now, another rumor has been circulating, accusing Drake of breaking up a singer’s engagement during his Certified Lover Boy sessions.
In a Drakesubreddit, a user accused Drake of flying out singer Naomi Sharon and her partner, JamieSun, to work on his forthcoming album. The two apparently went After being spotted in the gym with Drake, and after that is when the act occurred. JamieSun then confirmed that he and Naomi are no longer together after Drake caused Naomi to be unfaithful.
“Imagine having the most beautiful, supportive, and faithful relationship 8 years long with an engagement and wedding planned. A beautiful woman on your side as ride or die. Than this major opportunity comes and a world star calls your fiancé to sign a record deal. Flies you both over and than out of nowhere all the trust is vanished with knifes in your back and in your heart,” JamieSun captioned a picture on Instagram before going private.
He then followed up with another post, saying, “I am no longer with the person people think I am together with. I am no longer with the 8 years I thought I was together with.”
